I heard one on XM this morning that I don't know if I love or hate, but it's something. I can't even really recall the product name but it's a cough medicine that starts with B I think.

So this man calls the company that makes it to complain about how awful it tastes. He goes on and on and the company employee is like "oh heck yeah, tastes like burnt cardboard" or something similar. Then she asks how his cough is and he says it's been gone since he took the medicine and we get the tagline:

"B???? cough medcine. It tastes awful. And it works."

No I don't think they were joking.

Their TV commercials have people taste testing various disgusting labeled items with the same tag line. They're not even 10 seconds long (it seems) and I always see them in groups of three in a row. After a week, I'm already sick of seeing them.

That damn "Mr. Barky Von Schnauzer" commercial. Combine that with the fact my neighbor has a dog that will Not. Shut. The. Hell. Up. And. Barks. Constantly. and I've got a low tolerance for things canine at the moment.

I don't know about her, but something heavy should definitely fall on annoying armpit girl from that Secret commercial.

I hate the guy who does the DISH NETWORK commercials. He can't do impersonations and he's not funny. He should give up now.

I dont like those commercials, but he CAN do impersonations and he IS hilarious.

That being said, his impersonations in those commercials arent that good. But he's GOLD everywhere else.

MADtv hasn't been funny, to me, after Frank Callendo left the show. I loved his show on TBS and his Bush just cracks me up.
The end.

I really dislike this local radio spot for a pharmacy where among other akwardly phrased statments is: "men will love the scorpions in acrylic on keychains"

Seriously, that's how you're going to get men into your pharmacy?

There was a local spot for a funeral home with the written text "Get the piece of mind you've always needed" or something like that. I always wondered what they would do if I requested a piece of brain.

I feel your pain, Lise. Business owners really shouldn't do their own radio spots. In my area there is a Realtor that encourages listeners to "increase their financial position by a Real Estate investment." O_o Every time I hear it, I feel like I'm biting tinfoil.

Here in Houston... it's Mattress Mack, the owner of Gallery Furniture. He's so hyper that you can barely understand him.

And I'm really, really hating that McDonald's commercial with the 2 guys making the beat-box sounds. Why the hell does McDonald's even advertise, anyway? Same for Bud... who always has 7-8 mega-expensive Super Bowl spots. Do some people STILL not know who they are?

I have to agree about McDonald's commercials especially on the radio. If there is a pointless commercial trying to be hip that I don't know what they are trying to sell for the first 28 seconds it's at least half the time a McD's commercial.
The ones I really dislike personally is the Radio Shack if the actor buys something like an MP3 player somehow they end up becoming the head of Columbia records or winning the Nobel prize.
Regionally in the Pacific NW there are radio commercials for Video Only. They have used the same two actors looking at video equipment and deciding to go to Video Only for like 15 years. How many TV's could one couple possibly need? Doesn't the wife by now know that Video Only is cheaper? And their ending line of "You'll be sorry" which they constantly misquote in their own commercials is really annoying.

If we're talking print mediums, every bus in Edmonton has cellphone ads in them, both battling for supremacy; Rogers has a "photo collage" of the Rogers Five, doing summer things, and the other has the Frank and Gordon, the Bell Mobility beavers, advertising their wares.

The Rogers Five are five "friends" who do everything together. There's the dumb blonde, the vapid brunette, the multicultural male, the white guy with the afro, and the "guy who you're not sure is gay or not". Yeah, a real slice of Canadiana. The Bell beavers are two CGI beavers who hock everything Bell offers: Cellphones, internet, satellite TV. Heck, beavers are Canadian, and Frank and Gordon are Canadian names.

THing is, both series of advertisements are repulsive.


I avoid companies with lousy advertising, and I've successfully avoided both companies, and their other media assets.

And one of them is voiced by Norm MacDonald! No idea who does the other one, though, and I sure don't care enough to check.

They're such great friends that they don't even know the one guy's mom's name, even though they're in her house. I *HATE* those ads. If I had Rogers, I would refuse to use my Five out of protest.
