The TD Canada Trust commercial where two seniors are complaining that the bank should be using bankers hours or something. TD is pushing their hours pretty hard, hoping that people are forgetting that before the merger, Canada Trust's hours were those extended one that are being pushed on TV.
In Canada, Burger King is advertising the Steakhouse XT with a line like "It's the burger you'd buy if you were on a date with yourself" or something. In the advert, a guy is on a date with a girl, but it's actually himself in drag. AND HE'S HITTING ON HIMSELF.

Very, very disturbing.
I would hate it, but the guy has a real Eric Wareheim vibe going on.

I hate the freecreditreport.com commericals because: 1) It isn't "free" because you have to pay for a service. 2) They are owned by Experian, one of major credit reporting companies and are charging you for something they give you for free once every 12 months.
From their wikipedia page:
Like the other major credit reporting bureaus, Experian is chiefly regulated in the United States by the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA). The Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act of 2003, signed into law in 2003, amended the FCRA to require the credit reporting companies to provide consumers with one free copy of their credit report per 12 month period. Like its main competitors, TransUnion and Equifax, Experian markets credit reports directly to consumers. Experian heavily markets its for-profit credit reporting service, FreeCreditReport.com, and all three agencies have been criticized and even sued for selling credit reports that can be obtained at no cost.
While Experian owns the FreeCreditReport.com brand, that name was tarnished amongst some consumers following charges filed in 2005 by the US Federal Trade Commission alleging that Experian deceptively marketed “free credit reports” through the website.
Experian settled the charges, paying $950,000 to the regulator, without admitting any wrongdoing.
There's a stupid commercial about some deli meat that suggests that a mother doesn't serve it to her because they have too many preservatives...instead she gives peanut butter and jam sammiches to her instead.
Thing is - jams and PB have lots of preservatives!
This advert is for a no-preservative delimeat that's now for sale.
Anything involving that little wimp with the blue phone on Nationwide commercials. Honestly, I think they are designed to be so annoying, people remember them.
The Land-o-Frost commercial where the little kid is trying to hit the baseball. That stupid kid's Mom just sitting there and smiling at him while he eats the sandwich gives me nightmares. Can you imagine if your Mom did that to you?
The newest Bud Light playbook commercials. What ever happened to "funny" beer commercials?
Is it a Kia or whatever commercial with the chick singing and the douche nozzle playing the drums, then popping out of the trunk sprinkling fake snow. Plus I guess its a Christmas song as well so its got that again St it to. Plus the chick sings in such a high and soft voice you can't make out what she's saying.
Up on the housetop reindeer pause, Out jumps good old Santa Claus. Down thru' the chimney with lots of toys, All for the little ones, Christmas joys. Ho, ho, ho! Who wouldn't go! Ho, ho, ho! Who wouldn't go! Up on the housetop, click, click, click, Down thru' the chimney with good Saint Nick.
They actually have two different commercials out right now.
I'm guessing this one might be Kentucky-only, because it's a Kia commercial with Miss Kentucky (whose name is Kia) singing "The Christmas Song". I have to mute it when it comes on (which is a lot right now). The thing that gets me, apart from the singing, is the way she moves her arms like a robot.
I got to met former Vice President candidate John Edwards when he was running for President. I had my photo taken with him but it was lost on my computer when I left my job. I also got to chat with the lead singer of Clutch.
