I'd have to admit that I think the worst commercial on right now is the Dodge Caliber commercial. I have really gotten into the hockey playoffs here in Carolina but man is that annoying. OLN has decided to play that commercial everytime they go to commercial it seems. At any rate there is an interesting bit on it at cnnsi.com in the hockey blog section. Anyway, nothing that commercial has done has made me want to buy one. Replaying it fifteen times in three hours is not going to change my mind.

The first several dozen times I saw that ad, I thought Levitra was like an arthritis drug that helped him throw the ball. It wasn't until they brought on the cute MILF to talk about her husband's wang that I realized it was a boner pill.

Have you seen this one, I mean have you SEEN this one, that's for a... I dunno, a weight-loss product of some sort... that shows a big ol' close-up of a fat woman's ass in a bathing suit? I must see this 3-4 times a day. Big lumpy, dimpled ass, right up close in the screen there. Ugh. Man, come on. Put that away. I got kids eatin' food in here!

We're just seeing one for mens hair dye that targets grey hair. Its a bloke fencing against a woman. She smacks him, he colours his hair then he beats her. Her only line is after she gets hit "You nailed me"
It has the subtlety of a 50 Cent lyric.

There's an A&W ad running where the son and daughter-in-law inform his parents that they're pregnant by getting the dad a Grandpa burger instead of his customary Papa burger.

Not only is it the worst commercial ever, but it has to be the lamest way to say "we're pregnant" that I have ever seen.

I dunno. The "TALKS" between my dad and myself have always taken place at an A&W burger joint, so I could easily see myself doing this. Maybe the ritual "TALKS" that take place between a father and son take place at an A$W for more people than me and my pops. I'm pretty sure it would be at least touching to my dad for it to happen at a place like this.

I simply cannot stand the new Geico ads with the faux British gecko telling us how special we are for getting a quote from the Geico website. It was horrible the first time I saw it and it's gotten worse since then with repetition. Instamute.

The other one that's driving me insane is the ad for 32Venture and their make money with your own home business scheme. The smarmy women who leads off the commercial produces actual nausea in her listeners.

Two new ones for our running list:

1: on the radio, there's a new ad for a bank: switch now, and receive a free iPod. Now, I don't mind that part...it's just that they're singing the ad a la Frank Sinatra. That grates on my nerves, since I loved Sinatra's music.

I don't do business with that bank, and the ad isn't making me want to.

Next ad: for those who watch TBS: the vinyl siding guy. Grrrrrrrr... Oh lordy! Something about him just annoys me.

As a side note, i called up their 1-800 number, and the people on the other end were rude as hell when I asked if they knew of someone who offered the same service in Canada.

Whoever devised those ads needs a massive dose of Ritalin. Then the double Rasputin treatment.

The one where the guy kisses his wife at the door as he's leaving for work, and then he steps off the side of a cliff and opens up his parachute.

I'm just so sick of watching it.....it seems like it's been playing on TV forever.

So I'm not the only one hoping his parachute fails?

Oh, and those responsible for the FreeCreditReport.com ads must be broken for their spectacularly bad CGI work.

The new folk-singing Snickers spokesman must die! The annoyment level of this ad was recently cranked up to the Nth degree when it played not one, two, or three but SIX TIMES within an hour during one of the pre-season football games.

It's quite possibly the only time that I have WANTED to see Jeff Jarret using a guitar on my TV.

Bleargh. We had to keep uninstalling that shit off of people's computers when I was working tech support at school. Is it still spyware?

The new Progressive insurance ads.

It's the guy's delivery of his lines. Makes Ben Stein look downright hyper.

I like Kenny Mayne's delivery. I can't wait for ESPN NFL segments to start-up again.

I really don't understand that entire ad. First he IS the guy, but then....he ISN'T the guy because he DOES have the insurance? Or the stadium is empty because it's not full of all the people who DO have...what?

Just because some insurance company tells you they'll save you money doesn't mean that they're comparing themselves against Kenny's company (I think).

I hate all of those "train to be a medical technician assistant in just 6 short months" ads for the not-quite-colleges that come on during the day.

I dont mind the "Hate your job? Come here & train to do something else!" ones, but I hate the ones where:

  • Some dude recites a monologue about how much he hated working at the burger joint, so he went to ITT Tech and now "life never looked so sweet" while we watch a montage of him doing EVERYTHING BUT being at work working, or...

  • 2 girls that went to high school together run into each other at a burger joint where one of them is employed. The burger-flipper asks the other one (who is always well-dressed, taller, thinner & prettier) how school is going and/or "How come you always have so much free time & always look so happy?", and the response is always "Oh, I'm already out of school and I work in a doctor's office making awesome money and it only took 4 months. You should totally call now!".

    (What exactly is a "Medical Technician"?)
