Those Phil Mickelson pharm commercials, where he looks like he is being held hostage.

Re: Commercials you absolutely f&*$ing HATE

Only ones that comes to mind are both car commercials, the Lincoln(?) ones where no one knows what the fucking car looks like. People getting into the wrong cars, the valet standing by the car just dumbfounded that he can't find the car.

The other one (I also can't remember the brand) is the car with wi-fi that aired every commercial break during March Madness. So obnoxious.

Re: Commercials you absolutely f&*$ing HATE

A couple that come to mind...
Autonation commercials: do you have to rip off the ghostbusters song, automatically makes me hate you
Trivago travel site: the douchey spokesman gets on my nerves
Allstate "Mayhem" commercials: annoying but also whenever I see that actor in a movie now, I simply refer to him as mayhem

Those three minute commercials that show puppies and kittens that are deathly ill. I think it's supposed to encourage people to adopt a pet. But I wouldn't want to adopt a pet that will die by Friday.

You should watch John Wick. You'll get some catharsis there.

How about the direct tv with the talking horse and he said "my agent found me in Tijuana he's gonna make me a star"

Re: Commercials you absolutely f&*$ing HATE

Following a Comcast (CMCSA) complaint, the Better Business Bureau this week recommended that DirecTV (DTV) discontinue its hilarious ad campaign featuring actor Rob Lowe, because the satellite TV company couldn't substantiate many of the claims made in the commercials.

I thought they were funny.

Re: Commercials you absolutely f&*$ing HATE

I don't hate them really, but jingles get stuck in my mind very easily, and I end up humming the coda of various commercials almost daily. I forget what it is about, but some jingle ends with "Luna" and I apparently sing it often enough that my daughter now ends random sentences with it.

Re: Commercials you absolutely f&*$ing HATE

Absolutely can't stand it anytime a commercial uses an alarm clock sound for any reason. It just instantly angers me and reminds me of every time my alarm has ever gone off when all I wanted to do was stay in bed and get some more sleep.

Re: Commercials you absolutely f&*$ing HATE

The Firestone commercials where the guy goes off road to wake two others riding in the back. Why it bothers me is: 1) he could've had someone sitting in the passenger seat but instead stuffs three in the back (there is someone behind him) and has his tools there, 2) speaking of the third guy in the back, he is kind of a dick to that one as he could've been awake, 3) play some more lively music(!) and 4) could've crashed going off road.

Yeah, I've thought about it a bit too much but I've seen that damn commercial so many times.

I know it's kinda the point but all the anti-smoking ads with former smokers. 4 times in 3 minutes at 6:30pm, f*#k off!

Ok, I know I'm just supposed to roll with it and buy into the joke, but why is the husband up at 3 in the morning talking to the insurance agent? If it were some sort of emergency then the wife wouldn't be so suspicious. If it's not an emergency, then wtf? Is he lonely? Is he an insomniac? What?

So you're not buying that he was driving Lincolns long before anyone paid him to do so?
