Commercials you absolutely f&*$ing HATE

The new ultra pretentious Caddilac commercials with that crappy French song, and some guy on a couch and a flying "fashion" dude make my skin crawl. Not only do they not identify themselves but they spew these inane supposedly "deep" diatribes. God they are bad. Worse thing is I am not sure what demo are pursuing here. I have no idea who the flying seamstress is, I guess the headphones guy is Wozniack but both come across as douches, and even the misty glamour shot of the cars is crap. What horrible annoying insanely preachy and pretentious commercials.

What are yours?

Anything with that scary bear Snuggles
The Bayer aspirin, commercial with the guy on the plane, and he asks the flight attendant for something for his back and she gives him the aspirin and he says that he has a backache, not a headache and points at a picture of a sore back, he talks to her like she is a retarded six year old, that does not understand english

T-mobile commercials with people dancing, doing bike flips, playing a trumpet, chest bumping, etc. What the hell does that have to do with cell phone service?

example (I don't even care to embed the video):

About these. There are others that followed suit.

Is this the new con job?

I hated her with a passion but she is here to stay. I guess they were going to get rid of her but people protested.


The commercials have gotten better IMO.

Not a big Flo fan but they actually intentionally make her look frumpier and uglier. In real life she is much prettier than the Flo persona, but I would not cry if I never saw her again.

I like those, especially the one with the nerd.

Way less annoying than a lot of things.

On the flip side, keep those Carl's jr commercials coming.

Hot girls eating burgers. Kind of gross but can't stop looking. They found the formula.

Re: Commercials you absolutely f&*$ing HATE

Right now there are a few radio commercials that drive me crazy. I will not do business with them just because they are so annoying.

The Subaru radio commercials with some pretentious, pompous asshole swooning about his Subaru.

Two local car dealer ads have annoying jingles and they are on every 12 seconds. You change the channel and they're on the next one too. BASTARDS

Had to google as I didn't know what you were talking about. Yes, I can see myself pulling my hair out after repeated viewings.

I've never seen that on television. I have heard the radio spot tons of times though, and just based on that, I have no desire to google TV spots.

I hate the Christmas Lexus commercials where the guy not only gifts a 60k car to the wife, but park it in the living room. I hate that guy.

I don't hate that guy, I pity him. I bet after all that he still didn't get a blowjob.
