Annoying Commercials

KC138045KC138045 Columbus, OH Posts: 2,715
Are there any TV/radio commercials that annoy you or you just absolutely hate.  For me it seems like there are always a few that are played way too often or I just find stupid and annoying.

Currently I can't stand the My Pillow commercial and the Peyton Manning Nationwide commercials need to go away.

    The ones I absolutely cannot stand are for a local car dealership (I think the guy owns 3 dealerships, but the commercials are all the same). He likes to do parodies and puns of pop culture, especially movies. They are really irritating and make me never want to buy an automobile from any of his dealerships.

    Yes, the Peyton commercials are terrible. I also get annoyed anytime someone wakes up on Christmas morning and they find a car with a bow out in the driveway.

    If it makes you feel any better, the My Pillow guy got sued for millions over his commercials.
    His ad campaign of "buy one get one free" was said to be misleading, since it was always a BOGO offer, that was really the retail price and not a sale.
    Seems lame to me, if the fact that commercial runs for months with the same offer doesn't clue you in then too bad. But hey he lost. And now his commercial says "Two pillows for one low price" after paying some millions in false advertising fees.

    I have also heard that the My Pillow kind of sucks as a pillow, and only about 1/3 of those who have bought it would ever buy it again.

    Any commercial saying how happy people are about home dog food delivery. 
    Fuck everyone who is too lazy to go the fucking store and just buy the damn food.

    They're all at least a little or very annoying but I rarely watch TV- maybe a few baseball games around playoff time/ WS, and local news if something like a major wild fire is happening in our area.  I find most contemporary TV shows as or more annoying than the commercials.

    The commercials that miserably fail at attempting to be clever or humorous are what irritate the bejesus out of me.

    Ross - the kids playing with their toys look like something out of Children of the Corn.  Soulless!
    Again on the kid front, any ad that uses them to say something only an adult would.
    Those motherfucking cars in the driveway with a big bow - who does that?
    JEWELRY COMMERCIALS.  That's the way to someone's a woman's heart?  Most of that shit is fugly and gaudy.

    Now, give me the happy ASPCA or Honeybaked ham commercials?  I'm in, baby!

    Gah!  I should've clarified the Subaru ones where they promote donations to the ASPCA (among other charities).  I can't take Sara's version at all.

    No way, man. 

    The thing is that the stupid jingle works. Two of our three cars that reached the end of the road were donated.

    I HATE FLO.  Those commercials were the first ones I thought of for this thread.
    Any prescription medication commercial.  Those should be illegal.
