Mine is the guy who is sitting in the director's chair and he goes, in a sing-y type of voice:

I'm thinking of a number...."

It is for Free Credit Report .com. Every time I see that commercial, and they have been running it FOREVER, I want to punch that guy.



Well, that's just drunk talk! Sweet, beautiful drunk talk....

The Bud Light commercial with the kid wearing the t-shirt, helmet, and goggles attempting "feats" like not checking out the hot girls or shopping during the playoffs.

Stupid premise and unlikable "character" doesn't make me want to buy Bud Light, it makes me want to punch him.

It's a McDonald's commercial where the guys comes home from his daily trip to McDonalds. placing his change in the can until it busts, breaking his high-class twobyfour furniture.

a: The guy's eating at Micks every day and he's thin as a rail.

B: they run it ALL THE TIME - sometimes twice a break.

c: Nice furnishings, dude. Makes me want to eat at McD's like you.

The DirecTV internet commercial with the faux surf-guitar and the redheaded woman. Long, dull, and boring. They use lots of camera cuts to make her appear interesting.

The latest El Pollo Loco ad featuring this guy.

I HATE that jingle. It's like nails on a chalkboard. And USA airs it between every frickin' commercial break during Law & Order reruns. Thank you, El Pollo Loco, for ruining Guantanamera for me.

My girlfriend despises that Allstate ad featuring a variety of car crashes, which also airs nonstop during Law & Order reruns. Unfortunately, we're pretty addicted to L&O at this point, so...

Burger King. The Metal/Hard Rock/Punk (or whatever they are supposed to be) band that praises chicken fries while wearing a a creepy looking chicken costume.

I am all for commercials that just don't make sense to the product. This one just bothers me.

I may as well throw in that I also hate(d) the "Your way right away now" Burger King campaign. This is mainly because they never lived up to my expectations. MY way right away now IMO equals GOOD. Their burgers make McDonalds taste good (for the record, I'm not a fan of Mickey D's either). How hard is it to make a good burger huh?!

Guess I might be biased against the King of Burgers. However I don't mind the current add campaign with the creepy king.

I think those ads are now on year 3 of airing constantly. At first I was just annoyed by the fact that DirecWay decided they needed to cast the poor man's Cynthia Nixon for their ad. Then I started noticing how she used her hands. Like you said, they make a lot of cuts to make it look like she's doing something interesting. But basically all she's doing is standing and speaking a LOT of lines for a very long time. So to make it seem less monotonous and more spontaneously conversational, she waves her hands around constantly. If you have TiVo, fast-forward her on the slow FF setting, and watch her dance around like Michael Stipe in the "Losing My Religion" video.

I don't know if it's still airing, because I finally learned to block it out, but the one spot that really drove me nuts was:

"RED ROVER RED ROVER... WE CALL T! O! OVER!!!"

I really don't mind those commercials, but then I'm an ex-metalhead, so what do I know.

I do like the one where each band member steps out of the limo and tries to cross the road, only to be totally creamed by an oncoming car.

Regarding point A, I don't know about you, but living in a part of the city with its fair share of young hip trust-funded urbanites I see plenty of those guys, the type who wear the tight jeans they borrow from their girlfriends, despite the fact they eat crap all the time, drink 7 nights a week, and do no physical labor beyond rearranging their vinyl collection. So I can totally buy that one, because they are proof that some people are just lucky bastards.

I hate it when people say "commercial" instead of "advert", but that's just me being English.

Almost all perfume/aftershave adverts are stupid.

I hate when English people assume thier lingo is the only correct one on the planet.


Oh, and every McDonalds commercial since they dumped "You deserve a break today" and incorporated "I'm Lovin' it". I am not 'lovin it'. I aint even tolerating it. Annoying fucking jingle.


Oh, and WTF is with burger King? Are they intentionally making shitty commercials?

Those advertisements for drugs that will help whatever ails you...but have side effects that sound worse than the symptoms that are suffered. I really dislike those.

I agree. I hate any ads for prescription drugs. People shouldn't need drugs that require a doctor's approval "sold" to them. Most of the time you can't even figure out what the drug is for anyways.

Otherwise, the only commercials that annoy me are on the radio. Sadly, there are too many to name in this category.

On the "old guys who can't get it up" angle, I hate the ads for Viagra and Cialis that show 30s guys needing the product. I am sure there are a couple, but we all know it's mostly old guys.

Just the boring ones for me. The dancing chubby chicks for slim-fast(are there no chubby GUYS to dance for us, you Sexist pigs?!?!). The Hoveround commercial that shows old people riding their scooters a lot and an announcer. Wilfred Brimley (Wilfred Brimley?!?!) telling me where to get my diabetes supplies.
