German TV commercials are that bad this days that it would be more useful to find a few good commercials than naming all the bad ones.

One of the worst is "Sagrotan Ready Brush". There is this one guy saying with a very bored voice "So eine gut riechende Toilette hab ich noch nie gesehen" (= "I've never seen a good smelling toilet like this one" ).

It's so bad that it is actually funny again.

I just saw a commercial so atrocious I just had to post about it.

It's for a place called Future Fitness. The asshole who's in all the commercials walks up to the counter dressed up like Bill Clinton and in that crappy accent says "I've never been to a workout place before, if I try it, will I like it?" and then it shows clips of him working out. In one he says "I did not have relations with that female trainer" and in another, he's wearing a shirt that says "I LOVE HILLARY". AAAAAAAAAAAAGGGGGHHHH!! Every time I see that commercial I have the urge to destroy.

There's a local ad for a car repair shop that drives my completely INSANE!

These two really bad actors, a teenage boy and a little girl, get into a car.

Little Girl: You know you're not supossed to drive dad's truck.

Guy: Hush.

Then, you hear a crashing sound, the screen shakes, and the kids throw their hands into the air.

Guy: (With the emotion of a brick wall) Oh no. What'd we do?

Girl: We have to call Van Dyke collision! (sp?)

I HATE IT! If you're going to make a commercial, make it look good, and get people who can actually act!

Y_L_B: That commercial reminds me of another series of local commercials I hate.  It's for this place called Magic Mortgage. There's this one part where the guy's sitting in a bar and he's like "I can't believe my house got rejected for a loan due to foreclosure, repossession, etc." and the bartender keeps making all these weird expressions(coupled with the sound effects, it's the phoniest thing I've ever seen), and this guy comes out of nowhere and goes "U SHULD HAV CALD MAJIK MORGAGE LOL!!!" It's sometimes funny because of how bad it is, but it more likely makes me want to hurt people.

I hate that commercial where theres this lady packing groceries into her car trunk while her little brat kid runs around her legs with a knife or something. And she starts talking to the camera, which is apparently you, because other wise she'd be talking to another friggin' car. She starts complaining about how her credit cards aren't "magic". And then she bitches about how fees and other crap the comes along with a credit card isn't "magic". "I want rewards she can enjoy while she's eight, not thirty-eight". What a whore. Shut the fuck up and suck it up. Be grateful you're getting rewards in the first place. "Magic"... What a bitch.

Even the Cherokee Hair Tampon commercial?

The UK National Lottery Rollover advert with that disgusting woman is truly sickening. They stopped using it for a while but it soon came back, much to my distaste.    no no

That Mercedes commercial which plays the bastardised version of "Mein Herzt Brennt" by Rammstein.  Cobblers.  Anything to get out of paying royalties.

Now that you do, he just made my list for the eerie ways in which he jumps and jives. A little too spry for such an old guy, really.

Also: Herbal Essences. It's been mentioned, but just now I saw some terrible ad with a woman frollicking through oversized tropical flowers, blabbing on about her fantasy world created thanks to this shampoo, when she is snapped back to reality by her half-naked boyfriend/husband/father coming up behind her and asking where his socks are. Her reply? "In the drawer... next to your LOINCLOTH."
It's that one word that gets me. She's a psycho.

Add for a concert venue.  Here is their songs lyrics, and they sing it in an unbearably trite, unhummable tune:

"Driving in the sun.
Always on the Run,
Looking out for number one.
California, here we come!
Right back where we started from.


Call the request line, tell them that it's over.

The Bod Man Fantasy Spray stuff, if you've watched WWE in the past 3 weeks, you know what i'm talking about, they show the commercials every 15 minutes, and 2 Bod Man commercials, almost in a row, with only one commercial seperating them.  It's very irritating, a 2 hour show, the commercials every 15 minutes, 2 commercials almost back to back, that equals up to 16 Bod Man commercials every WWE show.

All Tampon Commercials

Those anti-smoking commercials, TRUTH I think.  Those make me want to smoke more.

And any commercials with rap, mostly sneaker commercials.

This bloody melbourne commercial for a car company called Lube Mobile. It has this really bad song "lubey lubey lubey". Its hard to explain how much rage it dwells inside of me. I can tell its made in melbourne, I just can.

On topic, I hate those chick commercials that start out showing something guys are into (footy or cars) and then a women comes on and says "Now that the men are gone lets talk about THRUSH. Thrush is one of the......

Man those things piss me off, when I see one come on I usualy change the channel or run out of the room.

Technically I hate all commercials, but then again, without them, tv will be like PBS, 3 weeks will consist of donations.

I really hate those Old Navy commercials, I especially hate the commercials, where the carolers show up out of nowhere, the little kid in the front freaks me out.  I feel like my skin is crawling just thinking about that scary SOB.

There's one I just saw not too long ago for watches, where there's all these people saying "it's not your job....it's not your clothes" etcetera, and you think for a split second "wow, what is it?".  Then they say "it's your watch".  At least now it's pinpointed what I'll be judged on.

Then there's a really annoying one for either coke or pepsi, where the music in the background by Queen is playing "I want to break free", and it has all these people in business suits and whatnot rejoicing because they have a can of either coke or pepsi.  Like soda is the final frontier of fun and freedom.

Don't get me wrong, I'm all for telling time, and I enjoy soda, but they're depressing commercials, as I'd like to think there is more to life than watches and drinking either coke or pepsi.  Well, that's my two cents.  Time to get ready for work!  I work in retail!

I saw a commercial today for a FOX reality series called "Who's Your Daddy?" in which this girl who has never seen her father has to pick him out of a crowd of 8 or so in this "reality show". By the end of the commercial, I found myself wanting to stab someone with a porcupine. Reality TV has officially gone too far.

That's stupid.  I think I can honestly say that I've never even noticed what kind of watch someone else was wearing, much less cared.

One of my friends is a FOX News fanatic.  I was over at his house once, and we were waiting to go out he kept complaining about the commercials FOX News would show over and over again.  I asked him, why don't he just simply change the channel?  And then he told me, he wanted to wait to hear what O'Reilly or whoever had to say next.

I hate those kiddie commercials as well, but my least favorite commercials are the ones shown on FOX news!  Need I say more?

Anyone seen that commercial that has a video with a kid who smashes a patio door with a baseball bat, and that one where that guy skis off the roof?  In the beginning of it it says, "People Do Stupid Things" and the song sounds like an out of tune yodeller.  I hate that commercial. 

Plus, those commercials for toys for Leap Frog really piss me off.  Those ones that say, "Now your child can learn with (name cartoon/kid-movie craze here), and pass off these toys as 'educational'.  Are they really educational?  Learning with the latest cartoon/kid-movie craze?  I don't think so! 

Plus, I don't like anti-abortion ads, myself!  Oh, and does anyone notice during Adult Swim, commercials about HUGGIES or PAMPERS are shown?  Can't stand those, either!   And some commercials I remember are those ones from Mr. Phipps Pretzel Chips that shows a bunch of people having fun eating them, and at the end, it shows two little kids with bags over their heads stomping their feet!  Yeah, that's a good lesson to teach kids!  Act up and eat junk food!  And the most annoying commercial jingle of all time......"What's your favorite part of the turkey!  Honeysucle White!  More of what you like!"   Also, I hated that one where that lady was singing and dancing about Country Pride chicken.  It ended like this, "It's hard to be humble, when you're serving country pride!"  And any advert that for low-carb diets that those Purdue chicken ones where the people in it deny that they are 'obsessed' with health or whatever!

Oh no! Right after I put that in favorites!

I hate these commercials lately where you call up some code on your cellphone and it gives you some background like a gangster or a pimp or something else gay like that. Worst commercials ever.
