Oh, I can't even watch that dog commercial with the sound off. Like I'll be at a bar and the damn thing comes on one of the TVs and I have to start looking somewhere else.

Maybe not just muting works.  Try adding circus music.  Especially at the bar.

How exactly is it unmanly to not drink Miller lite? Someone explain that to me. Also fuck that Dr.Pepper 10 ad with the "manly" action star. It's a fucking diet soda.

And why do men want a soda with 10 calories as opposed to none? Do all men want to be fat or something?

Yes, I hate that one too.  I simply forgot about it until you posted it. 

I also hate the one that has been running recently for voice recognition software.  I want to say it is called Dragon, but I'm not certain.  Basically any computer commercial that is targeted at people who know nothing about computers is bloody awful.

I would really like for Capital One to abandon the barbarian ads. As well as Geico and the fucking cavemen.

I remember thinking this one was an ad directed towards guys trying to land shallow cunts



Another annoying one that I can't find. I want to say it's a Red Stripe commercial. And it ends with a couple of DJs yelling like assholes and blowing air horns into their microphones.

I don't mind the Capital One commercials all the much, mainly because it gives work to Ogre from Revenge of the Nerds and I could probably get a job in them.

I usually like the Geico commercials, many are clever and funny, but the cavemen ones have run their course.

I wish I had seen this thread earlier, because I could chime in on every single fucking post to this point. But there's so many examples, I'm not sure I'd be adding anything. Carry on, gentlemen.

EDIT: Venk (who came up huge with the acne one) might have seen me bitching about this on Facebook a few weeks ago. Nonetheless, here it is:

Agreed, it says in the disclaimer "The truck cannot do this."

then...I don't get the point of the commercial one bit. It's simply a waste of time in the end.

Five.

Five dollar.

Five dollar foot looooooooooong.

The endless ads for crappy tv shows that are repeated over and over and over are terrible. I'm not even sure how some of those are supposed to get someone to watch. There's one that's a 10 second clip of some girl saying "What if everything you wanted isn't enough" or such. What is that show even about??

If you're in charge of any kind of company what so ever...how do you think it's a good idea to let this douchy spaz do your commercial?



I watch a lot of Sportscenter, and they show the bejesus out of this damn Lectric Shave commercial. If this "drill sergeant" is barking orders to his facial hair. Sounds to me like he's suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder and is likely to find himself waking up along side of his wife giving her a sleep-walking choke hold... And I don't think that the whiskers would be that excited to be severed by a razor blade.

Took the words right out of my mouth. It's not the commercials themselves that annoy me, but it re-enlightens me to how stupid people are as a whole. Similarly, and I remember bitching about this at TOTSM - Diamond Shreddies. Here's a not great example:

I remember people seeing this when the commercials started in 2008, and subsequently saying "Well, I'll never buy Shreddies again! How stupid do they think we are! They're obviously the same! I won't support a company that thinks so low of its customers!". Guhhhhhhh.

Not all these sites are scams, though. About a year ago I won a $50 Macy's gift card off of one of these sites for $4 plus $2 shipping and handling. I also know SkoreIt.com, which ESPN has commercials for, isn't a scam. It's actually a Better Business Bureau accredited site.

Shit I gave Restaurants.com 16 bucks and they sent me two $100 gift certificates to a local sushi place. The only caveat is you have to have a bill minimum $200 to use it. So we used it on my mom's birthday and fed 7 people on it.

I see this stupid ad all the time when trying to watch something on blip tv. I think the message of the commercial is fucking retards eat Totinos pizza rolls. Since I eat Totinos pizza rolls that doesn't make me feel very good. I also like how they leave the phone in the freezer.

Anybody remember that AT&T commercial from a few years back with the girl talking about meeting a guy in a bar and giving him her number. Then she goes on about how she was blown away he put her number in his phone and thought right then that it wouldn't work because he was coming on too strong or was moving too fast or something. She was like "Whoa....I just met you and you're already putting me in your phone?" Like what the hell else are you supposed to do? Write the number on a napkin? That's what a cell phone is for you waste of space.
