I hate the multi-grain cheerio spots with "Steve" and his wife. They did a terrible job compositing in the box after shooting the commercial. It's obvious it wasn't the box he was holding originally.

The latest Alltel commercial where they totally rip off my favorite Chris Farley bit ever.

Stay thirsty, my friends.

The "Most interesting man alive" commercial for some imported beer. No chance. I've seen two versions of this: one where they describe this guy as "living vicariously in himself" and "had an awkward moment just to know how it feels like"...and one where he comments on something, I really can't remember what.

The guy really creeps me out.

Both a radio and a TV ad for At&t Mobility...

- The TV ad with the "minutes" being sold at the yard sale. That woman is an insufferable, overbearing hag and needs to take a bath. (If they're not for "sale".. then what are they doing on the table???)

- The radio ad with the snobby woman speaking French and blabbering about how wonderful her daughter in Paris is. She needs a cheese grater to the face.

These ads started on radio and the radio versions continue to be superior to the TV versions.

I'm starting to get annoyed with the Paul Blart DVD ads. Is it just me that thinks he is screaming "I BELIEVE IN MY DICK!" when the ad starts?

You wanted the best, you got... Out of Context Quote of the Week.

"Mangini might not have had balls, but he DID have soft, supple breasts." (SEADAWG)


I think we officially can close this thread after this commercial. It's for a local radio station (The River 105.9), and it's technically the worst ad I've ever seen.

The ad consists of a few haphazardly-placed publicity photos of various artists that they'd play (Coldplay, Daughtry, etc.) with a huge-ass shot of Billy Joel in the background. They've got the names above the pics, ya know, in case you couldn't tell who's who. There's some graphical glitches in there too. At the end, they fade out these pics and replace it with their logo (which, it should be noted, isn't all that impressive). The soundtrack is a bit of some (presumably) Billy Joel song: "Everybody's talkin' about the new sound, funny, but it's still rock and roll to me."

And that's it. I can understand wanting to throw something together to put on TV, but... at least try to look like you put some effort into this. I'd be embarrassed to admit I accepted money for this crap. Alas, it has to be seen to be disbelieved, and I can't find the video online.

Oh, and the station's absolute crap. The kind of radio station you only listen to at gunpoint or if someone else in the office who has heard in passing of this concept called "music" put it on. (That's actually their format: "the station you listen to at work".) You could probably fit their entire playlist in one Twitter post. Way too much sucking off the obvious suspects (Led Zeppelin, Billy Joel, etc.) and they don't even bother playing anything but the biggest hits. If the news clerk at my old job hadn't gotten fired, I was about a month away from putting several bullets in my brain, an option which got even more appealing every time they played "Take the Money and Run". And yet, their TV spot is even more painful.

Speaking of radio, we had some bad commercials at our college radio station because we didn't take commercial ads, just PSA's. And I did our men's and women's basketball games that year, so I had to sit through a lot of bad stuff.

I REALLY want to cock punch whoever thought of the commercials where it's a horribly drawn cartoon going along to the recording of some crappy phone call, about investing.

I hate the Bing commercials. Hate them so much. It could be the best thing in the world but I don't want to use it because the commercial makes it sound like it is especially for stupid, annoying people.

See, this is when I know I hate something, I do the same thing. If a commercial drives me nuts, there is no way you will see me pay money for that product. For me, it is Geico. I hate that f*cking geecko. The cavemen bug me, but not as much as the geecko. I would not even bother calling them to even see how much I could save because I could never, ever switch to Geico.

Likewise. The Bell Beavers commercials convinced me to avoid them as a customer, much as the "Rogerz Friendz" commercials do now.

My current hate: Vic Crouter (sp?), a talking head on TSN here in Canada; babbling on about some stupid car cleaner, how Dale Jr. uses it, and to watch his car because of it. If his delivery wasn't as boring as heck, it's the fact that he rambles on and on and on.

I've grown weary of TSN's NASCAR coverage.

I already have Geico, and while they did save me a shitload of money on my car insurace, if hate were people, I'd be China.
