    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.

    Booking.com is good though I have to admit!

    Same with a BUY ONE GET ONE FREE, I SAY, BUY ONE GET ONE FREE shouty man advertising for a window company. If I needed windows I would avoid that one.
    I agree completely. Every time I see the typical 'shouty man' commercials I think of this and wind up laughing too hard to get too horribly annoyed http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_aNc5ijaHYs

    Jimmy Fallon's ads for Capitol One with that stupid spoiled baby. (I hate Fallon and babies both).

    There's a recent one for Pur water filters in which the filter talks, and for some reason it irritates the crap out of me. "H2O, MAGIC BANANAS! Adios, contaminos!" Ugh. And 'magic bananas'? WTF?

    OTOH, I freaking love anything with Mayhem.

    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!

    I hate the pregnancy tests ones, with the woman's voice-over going "gosh I hope I'm pregnant! I am! Holy..!" etc. And the other one.."I want to be a mom, but just not yet..." Mute, everytime.

    They could make a more accurate one with the woman going "I can't believe I slept with that guy! Please, dear god, be negative..." Because, you know, let's be real...

    And yet, some people do.

    I have to admit, in this house we do get a lot of comedic mileage out of Erectile Disfunction medication ads.

    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 shkeeve whenever i see 1-800-MESOLAW or 1-800-BADDRUG or any other slimy lawyer tripe.

    The Clementine orange commercial when the kid says "CUTEYS" a zillion times. I'll knock my gramdma over to get to the sound on my TV or radio.

    I'm not even sure if they make Massengill disposable (really? people would reuse these?) douches anymore. But the ads were always great:

    Mom: "Regular for me!"
    Daughter (you presume she just went around the world with the construction crew down the block): "Extra-medicated for me!"

    I want to S-H-O-O-T myself in the face when I hear that commercial.
    Ditto! It's on the radio all the time. I immediately change the station or that stupid song gets stuck in my head!

    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.

    Sorry for the derailment! Back on topic...

    Two that get me. The one is for an insurance company (I think - hard to say when I change the channel as soon as it comes on) with the guy crawling out of the pond covered in leeches. Gack!!

    The old Burger King commercials with the stalker King. Creepy as hell.

    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
