I am with you CGJ! I am at the point where I DVR everything I watch because the commercials make me lose my mind! There are so many between breaks, 6 or 7 at once??? Really?? to top it all off they are always too loud, and the fast speech is like nails on a chalkboard to me.
Number 1 for me is the Jimmy Fallon Capitol One commercials. Can't stand him; can't stand the commercials. The poor kid in those commercials is going to need more therapy later on in life than she can even remotely imagine now - lol!
Any & all pharmaceutial commercials. Totally worthless. Like you're actually going to go to your doctor & say "I want THIS".
Oh, & the Lays Potato Chip commercials with the woman going orgasmic (with appropriate orgasmic music playing in the background) eating the chips. For some reason, want to seriously bitch-slap her & tell her to get a life - lol!
OMG, I HATE those commercials, too! J.G. Wentworth... STFU already.
Can't stand the Empire Today commercials (flooring company)... the guy's voice is creepy and annoying.
OH, and SENSA commercials get on my F-ing nerves, probably more than any other one (that I can think of at this time)... All those corny people, dancing around, that stupid song- absolutely everything about SENSA commercials is like nails on a chalkboard to me. They annoy me so much, they make me angry.

Ask your doctor about Cialas. I saw a spoof once of a little kid with his father at the doctor's office. Something about him tugging his father's shirt tail say, "Daddy, you forgot to ask about Cialas." hee. Funny.
Now, come on, some commercials are actually good. Like the last Budweiser Clydesdale commercial. Who didn't want to shed a little tear at that one??
Oh, and since I can't think of any I hate at the moment, another set of commercials I actually liked were for some used car dealer (large chain) I THINK. But it was the Trunk Monkey series. I actually liked those. Here's a bunch of them if you are bored. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l8oPVVGYQ40

I have to admit, in this house we do get a lot of comedic mileage out of Erectile Disfunction medication ads.
A lot of people do actually . It's called Patient-Driven, Patient-Facing, or Direct to Consumer advertising. I'm a designer for a lot of BN pharmaceutical companies, and their sales reps specifically target patients in order to encourage them to, "...talk to your doctor about _______". Doctors do listen, surprisingly. If you've ever seen the movie "Love and Other Drugs" you'll see how competitive it is between brands. That's pretty damn close to how it is in real life. Some doctors are loyal to Viagra, and those Cialis commercials that a patient saw on TV do a lot to open windows for alternative treatments.
Cialis is one of my clients, actually. I don't do their TV commercials, though.
Here in central Florida there is a company called Appliance Direct. It's full of annoying children in ugly clothes, repetitive yelling adults who like to slap appliances, and the owner actually says, "paying retail is a WACKY NU NU" in one of them. WTF is a "wacky nu nu"?!?!

I hate the KY commercials for their products that "enhance" the experience. Rather awkward when the came on while dd and I were watching TV together when she was young. The "Hail to the V" commercials tool
