ALL the Liberty Mutual ads. The ones on the pier, the emu ones, all of them. So terrible.

I know exactly what you're talking about and I do the same thing. I have to mute it from the beginning just to make sure, and I don't like looking at it either.

Facebook, Red Bull, Liberty Mutual, Zillow, My pillow, any Prescription Co.; have been very consistent in putting out annoying commercials for quite some time now.

I try to watch as much as possible delayed, so I can skip the commercials. But I've been watching some Peacock programming lately, where I can't skip them, and I've taken particular offense to Kate McKinnon prancing around in the Verizon commercials. I believe it will color how I view her on SNL. Right now, I just want her to go away.

Watching her walk in those heels makes me just feel bad for women in general.

I think it's just she is awkward AF in the commercial and using a lot of green screen that makes it odder to watch. My guess is she normally does not wear heels or walk that way.

All of that, but was also trying to go all feminist ally and wonder at how anyone could walk normally in 6-inch spike heels. It looks like torture and an accident waiting to happen as she pitches forward face-first ..

My wife wants to throw things at the TV when this Applebees commercial comes on.

The Jardiance commercial with the marching band leader. I keep hoping the football team playing on the field while they are marching will take her out.

The JK Simmons ones were fine, but yes, the rest are terrible.

Holy shit, yes! Out side of the fact that it’s an Applebees commercial, which is generally all-around shorty food, I absolutely HATE that “I’m so sexy” type of country music.

Well, that's Farmer's insurance, but you're right that the "rest" are in fact terrible.

Every time I see JK Simmons on anything, all I can think is that he's going to rape Beecher when the camera stops rolling.

I just saw one yesterday (I think it's Liberty Mutual) where they say something like "9 out of 10 customers come back to Liberty Mutual" and then they basically say the 10th guy is mentally challenged. And all I could think of was "who thought that was a great idea?" Perhaps the same people that came up with limu emu.

I do like the one on the pier with the actor who continually flubs his lines, though.

I'll give you that one. My kids and I do laugh at that one. Liberty Biberty. So they're maybe 1 for 12 so far.

I honestly can’t tell if this is some marketing gimmick or if this Hay Seed actually wrote a song about bourbon street steaks at Applebee’s all by himself.

I keep seeing this ad (short version) on ABC's app. I like Beyonce just fine and all, but I find this ad in particular to be obnoxious.

Speaking of songs, really tired of those "Nothing is Everything" songs (in different mixes, the first was pop, the latest is sort of country).
