    Default Current commercials you really hate!

    I think we had this same topic on the last OT day so I'll start a new one for this OT time period.

    I absolutely hate the commercial with the HUGE baby that is supposed to be a car.

    I think it might be an insurance company commercial but I usually fast forward the minute it comes on if I'm watching a show I DVR'd or get up and leave the room to puke (ok that's an exaggeration).

    All of the Subway ads.

    And yes, I think the giant baby is creepy.

    Not a tv commercial, but a local radio station plays this incredibly annoying ad for a local grocery store... annoying enough that I refuse to shop in the store even if its directly on my way. It makes me want to pull my hair out every time I hear it

    There is a new Kraft commercial with giant adult heads on children's bodies being complete a-holes to their parents.

    Horrendous. Absolutely horrendous.

    I can handle alot of commercials by just ignoring them. But the ONE commercial I physically have to get up and "mute" or otherwise avoid is the super sappy Cheerios commercial with the little kid and his mom. Little kid asks if his mom's mom fed her cheerios and she says "yes" and he says "then eating cheerios is like eating with Grandma" and mom gets all emotional (clearly, Grandma must be dead). You're a breakfast cereal, Cheerios! Stop trying to appeal to the sorrow of dead beloved grandmas!

    I hate the Zicam "pre-cold" commercial. It shows a woman being chased by a "pre-cold", an ugly monster with an extremely snotty nose. It just icks me out.

    Is there anyone here who DOESN'T hate the Charmin bears who are incapable of wiping their asses properly? Or who thinks "Enjoy The Go" is cool?

    Anyone? 'Fess up, surely someone finds those stupid bears charming. (Bears don't use TP anyway. According to a very old joke, they use rabbits to wipe).

    Another one, that TP commercial with the British woman asking people about their bums. Oh yeah, like anybody's going to talk about their ass with a total stranger.

    It becomes a lot more bearable when you mishear the lyrics as "hump". Now I giggle when it comes on

    The Skittles candy commercial - where the kid shows up with skittles stuck all over his face and neck and says his doctor says he has "skittles pox" and his little friend picks a candy off his face and eats it. Then she has skittles on her face and neck. Just ewww.

    ALL of the Viagra and Cialis (sp?) ads! Especially the ones where the couple is sitting in two bathtubs. Why separate tubs? I know there was some reason the company insisted on two tubs, but it's still stupid.

    I like the Swiffer ad with the old couple, but the chimes/bells in the beginning drive me crazy. Worst earworm ever for me, for some reason.

    My dad thought that joke was hilarious. I thought him finding it hilarious, was funny, because he was pretty conservative and proper...
    But the Charmin commercial DOES make me think of that joke every time I see it.

    I hate the Sonic commercials, and the E trade talking baby. Well pretty much any talking baby commercial.

    The 'crazy' car ad

    All the virginia campaign ads--i'm in MARYLAND! On *cable*! Meanwhile, my sister in VA has seen nary a one...

    Some ad that has some little kid saying 'why?' over and over...

    A radio ad that has some little kid whining 'mom! Mom!' over and over... Gah!

    Are you detecting a trend?
