But maybe most like them because they keep making more.

I'm just entertained because they obviously signed Baker to a multi year deal and he's... probably not the superstar they thought he would be. Same for those Hulu commercials where Baker's head is on some other guy's body and he can't throw.

The "Joel Embiid is not happy" Mountain Dew commercials throughout the playoffs after the 76ers were unceremoniously dumped were also entertaining.

Never noticed but I never care enough about trucks to notice. Annoying commercial or not, she's pretty hot.

I've noticed this this year, the cutaway shots of the cars are two completely different cars (not even pickups) than the ones that they are standing next to. So I guess that's how they update the commerical.

Yeah, from memory I don't think the couple and the trucks are in the same shot. Easier to swap out footage of new trucks every year.

Yeah I don't think they swap out footage. They just advertise the models they want to right after that part of the commercial, with voiceover. That works as long as they don't significantly redesign the truck or change the grill or anything.

This is the current commercial. You'll notice that at about 15 seconds in, the shot changes, and there are 2 different vehicles, neither of which are pickups, in the same driveway.

For some reason all I was remembering was the closeups after they left the kitchen.

Not really in the hate category but I find the commercial with the Progressive sign spinner guy asking his wife if his arms are bigger just sort of disturbingly sad if you give it any thought. Maybe just me. His wife is awesome in that commercial though.

Maybe Travolta fans might hate this or love it

^ That’s the first time I’ve seen that and while I don’t particularly care for the commercial itself, a Pulp Fiction reunion is never a bad thing! Any two other actors would bring the commercial into “f&*$ing HATE” territory though.

This stupid ass commercial. Not so much for the message. Itís a sweet sentiment but my problem is these punk ass kids totally waste the barberís time. If you want your head shaved just ask him to shave your head. Donít waste the poor guyís time by having him give you various hairstyles first!

All I could think of (when I first saw that commercial) is, what if she says no?

Re: Commercials you absolutely f&*$ing HATE

I've done that before. Sometimes you don't know what you want when you sit down. They're getting $30-40(with a tip) for about a half hours worth of work which is a helluva rate, so who's time am I wasting?

Re: Commercials you absolutely f&*$ing HATE

$30-40?? Damn I’m outta the loop on haircuts. I was married to a hairstylist so free cuts there and then when she hit the road, so did my hair. Now I just shave my melon.
Also even forgetting the ridiculous cost, I was thinking the same thing. Stop wasting the barbers time you assholes.

CNN has the most annoying manipulative commercials I've ever seen. St Judes, SPCA, etc... I mean these are certainly worthy causes but man, I can't stand the obvious "this will make you cry" manipulation.

Those St Judes commercials aren't just blanketing CNN. Yeesh Are you St Jude? I'm looking at St Jude. WTF

But I'm posting those Tax Doctor ads

The repetitive animation is just awful and irritating

I hate to admit this, but those commercials crack me up because that one kid looks exactly like a Patton Oswalt Mini-Me.

Those Shriner's Children Hospital commercials had me explaining what an endowment fund is to my kids.

Re: Commercials you absolutely f&*$ing HATE

There’s a holiday commercial for some lottery ticket. It’s 2 park rangers. A boss in his truck and the woman he gives it to as a present. The ticket flies out of her car and all these animals come together, follow her home and finally a raccoon places it under her door. She picks up the ticket and opens the door and looks around. What I hate about it is I saw the exact same commercial last year at this time, but now they CGI’d masks on both people. I understand the importance, but just hate it bc it is so fake. Anyone else see this one?

I wonder if you two are thinking of Shriners not St Jude

I get annoyed with the Sonic commercials where at the end they have to repeat whatever food advertised.

This commercial for Kraft macaroni and cheese. I love listening to Enya and hate that her music is in this commercial.
