    There's no better pairing than a naked man and children's shows.

I'm glad someone else noticed that part. The kids leave the room, and suddenly the guy is standing up in the tub.

At the least, they could have made it where the wife was moving around. She talks to the kids, then she checks up on the husband taking a bath. Maybe she knocks, and then when there's no answer she just walks in, and is shocked to see the guy standing up with a sponge on his head. She asks what he's doing, and we get the punchline.

That's how the commercial should have gone. Instead of this display of irresponsible parenting.

Couldn't you people be spending your time better picketing the Burger King world headquarters in person? (Make sure to spell at least one word wrong on your signs...it's an attention getter!)

OBVIOUSLY by the time the dude stands up, the kids are in the car anxiously waiting to go to Burger King.

There's a new one that just came out.

Cut to a Hard Rock Live-esque arena with a bunch of music-crazy fans yelling "ALKA SELTZER ALKA SELTZER." Then some FOTM pop-punk band comes out and sings the "Plop Plop Fizz Fizz" song while the crowd waves a glass of Alka Seltzer like it was a Bic lighter. Truly appalling.

The sad thing is, if the titles are to be believed, that was just some guy who won a songwriting contest. I hope he stole all the gear afterwards.

Did you also notice as he stands up, there are two huge open windows behind him? Who has their bathtub in front of two big windows with no curtains? This ad is dumber than dumb.

Considering the whole gag revolves around some guy standing up in a tub... that's probably more thought than the writers put into it. ;)

I hate the Snickers commercials with the guy with the guitar singing, the Starburst berries and cream commercials, and the new Subway commercial with the annoying guy saying MORE MEAT MORE FLAVOR.

There's a lot of crappy commercials out right now. :/

I hate that Snickers commercial so bad that I actually change the channel now whenever it comes on. Lately my daughter has taken to singing that song whenever she wants to irritate me. I would love to see wrestlings Jeff Jarrett suddenly appear and smash that guy over the head with his own guitar.

I disliked all of the Starburst commercials until the one with the weird singing berries & cream guy came along. The commercial is so odd that I actually like it for some strange reason. Maybe it's just the Monty Python fan in me.

Anyone else notice they changed the first one of these? When it first aired the guy was "gellin' like a felon". I imagine someone complained, so it was changed to "gellin' like Magellan".

Magellan?

Ads for "The Kill Zone" on Spike.

"I'm tired of your bullshit." Yes, uncensored.

They've been running it all afternoon, at least during the various Trek episodes.

EDIT: This afternoon they started to become censored.

I hate those Swiffer commercials where you see someone (usually a woman) berating someone else off camera about how they're so sloppy and dont do the job anymore and they need to "pick it up" already, then the camera shows that they're actually talking to an old fashioned mop & bucket.

A couple currently

These dumb futureshop commercials, more specifically the "rigging the sensor" that's currently airing, and the (fill in the blank)...sale

Up here in Canada the Comedy Network's promotion for current shows like Odd Job Jack, plain suck! They need, NEED to get a new voiceover girl as I'm sick of her.

I don't think I've ever agreed with you as much as I do right now

Along with that, we have commercials for Bally's here with this woman who starts off saying "are you looking at me? Well I'm looking at you." and proceeds to just annoy the crap out of me every time I see the ad.
