MY GOD I absolutely HATE those Radio Shack commercials where various idiots keep sitting down in a chair and telling us what they want for Christmas and Valentine's Day. Thankfully, they seem to have gone away, but I bet they'll come back the next time there's a gift-giving holiday. Those drove me nuts.

The one with Bobby Knight (or is it a look-alike?) performing various violent acts on said chair is pretty hilarious.

I haven't seen it in a while (THANKFULLY!), but there was a infomercial a while back for a penis enlargement pill that would come on late at night.

Reason #1 for hating this infomercial - How the hell does that shit get on the air. There IS NO SUCH product. If there really was, you'd think Einstein or some other great scientist would have 'discovered' it years ago. "Fuck the atom bomb, I want a bigger penis." It's gotta be false advertising and I want to sue them over it.

Reason #2 for hating this infomercial - It featured Ron Jeremy. If there's one white guy o the face of this earth who DOESN'T NEED such a product, it's gonne be him. Why not have a small, geeky guy on there with a hot, beautiful woman clinging to him. That's gonna work better then having an internationally know porn star who already HAS a huge penis.

Oh yeah, I'm with you there.

When the one says he no longer has an apetite and gives that priss-assed pissy look, I am just dying to hit him in the face with a shovel while screaming "GET OVER IT". : )

Wawa has a new radio ad campaign in my area for some kind of contest where you can win BIG PRIZES if some Wawa guy sees you drinking a cup of Wawa coffee. To emphasize the fact that the person in the commercial is now obsessed with Wawa coffee they have the person sipping LOUDLY from their coffee every other second. Say a word, *SLURP*, say a couple more words, *SLURP*, "Wawa blah blah" , *SLURP* *SLURP* *SLURP*....

If the point of an advertisement is to get you to remember their product then Wawa has succeeded. As soon as I hear someone mention Wawa coffee my hand flies on its own accord and changes the station immediately.

I absolutely detest the OnStar radio ads that feature "actual customer recordings".

They are fucking awful. Can't they just hire actors for passable re-enactments? The performances of "actual customers" make Heidenreich sound like Olivier in Richard the III. It's always some idiot who has locked his keys in the car with the baby (who he blames for locking the doors of course) or some whiny broad who's just totaled her Escalade and needs an ambulance pronto.

These are on ESPN Radio non-stop and are torturous.

I actually heard one the other day at work that I found unintentionally(?) funny. It goes something like...

Operator: OnStar, how can I help you?
Customer: I locked mah keys in the car.
Operator: AGAIN?
Customer: Yep, it happened again...

I was fully expecting the tag line at the end to be OnStar - Assistance for Idiots.

That being said, yes, I'm tired of them as well. And if we can lump entire ad campaigns in here, although I already stated my hatred for a specific "Hoveround" commercial, I want to go on the record expressing my disapproval of the current Skittles campaign. It comes across to me as another example of a marketing company trying to out-quirk the competition, and it falls completely flat with me every time.

For TV : The McDonald's commercial with the woman and the sharks. URGH.

Radio : McDonald's strikes again. The one with the retarded barking seals in the background.

Whoever their ad agents are need a good kick to the face.

I'm currently quite annoyed by that Nissan Pathfinder commercial where the 18-to-35-year-olds decide to take a trip making only left turns and it shows the wonderous adventures that await them. If you took a trip making only left turns, wouldn't you wind up right back where you started? Even if you assume that not all roads are straight and that you won't always drive the same distance before making said turns, you're still just going to meander about in varying rectangles.

aw come on, are you guys serious? I found that line of commercials to be funny- the caveman's "priss-assed pissy look" as you call it is hilarious to me; just the irony of a freaking CAVEMAN being Indignant- come on! In General, Geico is good with its offbeat humor also seen in the gecko commercials.

What commercial I DO HATE- I dont know if anyone has seen commercials for Arroz Rico, it basically consists of kids dancing in choreography to a crappy spanish jingle reminiscent of Menudo... idk, I just hate those kids and their song.

In general, all their commercials are overexposed to the point of being incredibly annoying. (See also: Ditech)

I'll give Geico some credit in that they have some commercials that are at least initially funny, and it's the ad nauseum airing of them that makes them annoying. Ditech's commercials make me want to pull my hair out and beat the recurring character with a stick upon first airing.
