Re: Commercials you absolutely f&*$ing HATE

The General Auto Insurance commercials
Any Cadillac and Buick commercial - I HATE the music in the Buick spot
T-Mobile is ridiculous with the super hyped dancers and bike tricksters
Any commercial pimping out your credit score

Finally, I HATE the Burger King ad on the radio where the guy rolls his r's when working the drive thru window - they're apparently pimping a croissant breakfast shitwich.

I wonder if these actually deter new smokers (I don't think they really affect current smokers). I'd think most people know smoking is bad for you, but then I'd think that most people know what milk, beef, and pork are and apparently the ads for those help boost the industries, so who knows how ads work?

While I hate most fast food ads, I find the Jack in the Box ones pretty consistently entertaining.

The AT&T U-verse commercials with snotty entitled tweens waxing poetic about the "old days" when your parents couldn't wheel the TV outside next to the pool or onto the front lawn so their younger siblings can constantly watch TV.

The Amazon Fire Phone commercials with the two snotty 8 year olds acting like they were an old Jewish couple.

Any wireless commercial that tries to guilt you into feeling like garbage because you haven't gone out and bought a brand new phone to replace the phone they guilted you into buying 6 months earlier.

Any wireless or cable ad that tries to make you feel like you have to be streaming some show or movie every second of your life.

Sonic commercials annoy me in general since in my 30 years of life I've never once seen a Sonic.

Most of what Sonic has is mediocre, but they have a massive menu and serve breakfast all day. Plus good tater tots.

I don't think any of them use roller skates anymore though.

Anti-smoking ads bother me, not because of their graphicness (watch me clean this hole), or dumb (all the teenage anti-smoking ads), but simply because it makes me want to have a cigarette. 17.8% of all adults in the US are considered "smokers", not sure what the actual number would be for that. In 2005 it was 20.9% or 45.1m.

Those aren't even the ones that I dislike (although they are still annoying). I hate the "Truth" anti-smoking commercials that really like to hammer their point home. Enough is enough I fucking get that smoking is bad.

Re: Commercials you absolutely f&*$ing HATE

I hate it when artists sell their songs for ads, only for the songs to be re-recorded and the lyrics used completely out of the original context.

I've been hearing a lot of lawn care radio ads, the one with Howie Long annoys the piss out of me.

And uh, I guess:

I think those are just backdoor advertisements for the tobacco industry.

The more you tell kids not to smoke, the more they want to.

Re: Commercials you absolutely f&*$ing HATE

Here in Oklahoma we get these Chickasaw Nation commercials that are beyond obnoxious. Some person who doesn't even look Native American goes on and on about how they are proud to be Chickasaw. The most annoying thing about them is that they aren't 30 seconds or even 60 but feel like three fucking minutes long.

I've been watching a lot of playoff hockey and it seems like every commercial break they air that Jeep Renegade commercial.

"Hey hey hey
Hey hey hey"

Those Outback Steakhouse commercials. If that's a real Aussie accent I'd like to nuke Australia off the face of the earth. That fucking guy is so annoying I refuse to eat at Outback because of him.

Any commercial, radio or TV where they repeat a phone number 3 or more times. I have to turn it off before they finish the third time or the terrorists win.

The Nature's Care Organic Garden Soil commercial is dumber than, well, dirt.

And the PC Matic commercials are downright insulting while cloaked in lame patriotism. I can't stand them.

Cialis

I wonder exactly how many little kids have now asked their parents, "What's erectile disfunction mean"?

I can't stand the State Farm commercial with Gramma on the phone ("Six callers ahead of us, Jimmy.") and they've played it for 2 freaking years!

There is nothing making me want to break my TV right now more than this fucking piece of shit ad. Shit music, shit dancing, shit drink. Go straight to hell and rot, Mountain Dew.

My kids love that commercial. I love the Pineapple Mango one. The other 4 flavors are awful.
