Anybody who listens to espn radio has heard the following:


"Golic!"


"Yes Greenie"


The Mike n Mike Olivia (sp?) HDTV commercial. Could Mike Golic sound any gayer. YES GREEENIE! I'm suprised he didn't use an exaggerated lisp just to say the line.

The Walmart back to school add with the big group of kids interjecting "Walmart" and "I got it at Walmart" into what is supposed to be everyday conversation. It is annoying and it gets played every commercial break on pretty much every channel where I live.

For Canadians, that stupid Rogers my-five cell phone add. There are two of them (both annoying), but the one with the stupid girl who shrieks "it's his mommy" at the end is much worse.

"Flat. Buns. I like flat buns."

Just. Stop. Will you just stop.

It was funny the first 100 times I saw it. Now... not so much.

Not to mention that, even if the burger/sandwich looked appealing (which it doesn't), the nearest Carl's Jr. is 45 minutes away.

Ha, I came in here to complain about that very ad. Instead, I'll vent about another uniquely Canadian ad campaign -- the masturbatory riffs that are Frank D'Angelo's Steelback commercials.

Also, I have a general beef about movie ads. What's worse, when a movie promotion starts 2-3 weeks before a film opens and you get a steady stream of ads in that period (a la Good Luck Chuck), or when you hear nothing about a movie until about a week before it opens, and then you suddenly get a commercial for it during virtually every ad break (a la Mr. Woodcock)?

When they combine the two! I've seen that fat guy from Balls of Fury get punched in the groin by a child more times than I've hugged my mom.

That's funny! That should be the line in your signature or something.
That's like the 2004 World Series when Fox showed some baseball in between promos for House M.D.

I hate the Brut ad with the rock music, the silly photography of the Brut bottle spinning and crap. This ad is mostly played on ESPN2 during NHRA Drag Racing. I hate Ron Capps anyways so I hate the commercial more. It's too bad the commercials still run after he's been eliminated...

The new AT&T mobile commercials where someone sits and tells you how many places they use their cell phone while the background continually changes. At the end they say they need a cell phone for "Delazonacagopolis" or something stupid like that. Then, the stupid announcer repeats the stupid combined city name. I think I saw 5 different versions on every commercial break yesterday during the Redskins/Giants game.

Hell, compared to their usual cavalcade of commercials covered in subliminal five bars of reception (look, there's a guy stacking ice so it looks like those bars! And the pattern on his truck! And we've reinvented Seattle's landscape so the Pike Place market has five bars!) the Delazoneacagopolis commericals are a breath of fresh air.

Although to be fair, the new Cadillac leitmotif is "Stars" by Hum, so assuming they're getting paid in full, it's worth it in the end.

The Quiznos one with the dumb chick talking about meat inspires Michael Meyers-type thoughts in me.

As a group though, the Olive Garden consistently has horrible commercials. And I mean horrible. I don't know what braindead ad exec thinks this "formula" works, but every single Olive Garden commercial consists of a group of people eating the new dish, making what is supposed to be a joke but is instead something so banal and lifeless a 3-year old wouldn't think it is funny, followed by everyone laughing hysterically. You're not funny Olive Garden!!!!

Yesterday I again heard the GAMIN.COM where they sing the jingle to some Christmas song. I thought for sure they'd retire it after last year.

I really loathe the McDonalds commercial with the two douchebags telling each other how much their jacket, haircut, and shoes cost that ends with the girl at the desk saying "double cheeseburger, one dollar". Are they complimentng each other or trying to one-up each other? Who gives a crap?

I'm pretty sure they're the kind of guys who always need to tell people what a great deal they got. It makes no sense for them to offer her two dollars for the cheeseburger though. Just go to McDonalds and buy one for a dollar yourself. I wouldn't mind the commerical if the last bit were taken out.
