My sister didn't go to preschool and I did. She's also much more social and likely to go to college than I am(probably because smarter means you're not social or college bound). In fact, the reason my sister never went to preschool is because I was such a nightmare there. But that's another story.

I may have said it before here, but I'll say it again. Spardello's commercials. It's a local tailor shop that just shows a bunch of shots of suits and has an annoying voice over guy saying a bunch of generic crap. It's so bland and phony. The store pisses me off too...I walked by one a couple times. They were blasting opera extremely loud, and I wasn't even in the store.

I know some more commercials I can't stand!  Anyone seen those ones for Motrin?  "Head and Shoulders, Knees and Toes!  Knees and Toes!"  And there's one for kids: "Sneezing, Coughing, Stuffy Nose! Feeling Better Throat to Nose!"  Man, those are awful!

How about those ones from Tilex where the gangster who looks and talks like Joe Pesci?  "What do we do with stains?"  "RUB 'EM OUT"!  I laugh at how stupid and unfunny that sounds!  Plus, I hate any ads for medicine, like that one for an exzema cream, I don't like that little 'superhero' guy in it.  Talk about pointless!  What the hell does a superhero have to do with exzema?

I hate that commercial too. Especially cause it reminds me I have exzema...

I also hate that Anna Nicole Trim Spa commercial, god is she butt ugly. And no I don't like her body.

Here's another:  Anyone seen those ads for St. Joesph?  "Pump Pump Pump Pump Pump Pump Pumps your blood"!   One version of the commercial has lyrics to the jingle with the sing-along ball.  Then the new one has some old guy singing the jingle on a banjo!

I hate those commercials where they're talking about how most kids whose parents smoke will become smokers. My dad smokes and my mom used to smoke, and I don't plan on smoking. Also, I just hate that kind of "guilt trip" thing.

Old Navy commercials are terrible, and the songs are horrendous. (That one they had in December with the song that was hardly a song at all and didn't rhyme was just sad.)

I despise Kidz Bop commercials because I think that they're just a stupid idea. I might enjoy them if they weren't sung by a bunch of kids. Also, some of the songs have swearing on them (at least, the originals do), and yet they call the CDs "kid-friendly"!

Commercials for dolls are always bad, especially for Polly Pockets and Bratz. (Those Baby Bratz dolls just scare me. They use their bottles as "bling-bling".)

I could go on, but I don't wanna bore you.

I hate those commercials. I don't have a clue why little girls want to play with those nose-less Bratz. Creepy.

Me and my brother were watching Animal Planet some time ago and we saw a commerical for a little kid's video on learning their alphabet using the first letter of an animal's name. It had an orangutang and the dude was like, "O, O, O, orangutang, he looks like a hairy old man." We were cracking up, complaining how stupid it was.    evil laugh

One that really makes me mad is a commercial for Dr. Pepper or some drink... This girlfriend and boyfriend are sitting on a couch watching TV and the guy has a Dr. Pepper in his hand. The woman slowly reaches for the drink while still staring at the TV. Well the guy freaks out and starts frantically running out of her house with his Dr. Pepper while his girlfriend has a "What the hell..." look on her face.  confused

I hate those 'Keep Kids Away from Ciggarettes' commercials, myself!  I hate the way the teenagers faces in those commercials are always shown close-up!  What's with that?!

Also, I hate those commercials from "Lending Tree".  Like the one where the kid shows his father he go into college, then the father gets all crestfallen because it's an expensive Ivy League School.  All thoughout the commercial the father is like, "Ivy League!  That's so wonderful!  I can't belive it!  Ivy League!  boo-hoo, Ivy League!"  It shows the father selling his car and going to a pawn shop! Also, another one of those commercials I hate is that other Lending Tree one about the guy who says, "I'm in debt up to my eyeballs!"

I personally think all mobile tones, screens and message things should be banned from TV, especially at the rate they screen them.

No point moaning about poor adverts, the ad-breaks are just there so you can pop to the loo or get a cuppa without missing the programme anyway  tongue

Am I the only one who can't stand those stupid commercials for Overstock.com?

If you haven't seen them, there's this smiley bitch in an eeriliy white room. Trying to be seductive, or as seductive as you can be while you're advertising an online shopping outlet, she blurts out of nowhere, "OVERSTOCK IS ALL ABOUT THE O!!!11!" She continues on with what Overstock is "all about", then out of nowhere she's shirtless with a gold necklace on. "Occasionally, it's all about the gold," she says as this terribly ugly grin sweeps across her face.

There's more, but if I don't stop now, my stomach will implode.

YLB, you took the words right out of my mouth. Every time I hear that woman say "It's all about the gold", I want to take an axe to her neck.

For originality? Kill Arby's commercials. I'd rip that talking glove in half.

Any Old Navy commercial makes me want to hang myself. Especially the most recent one, where they remake the song "Fame", into a stupid song about shorts.

I hate the newer Geico commercials with the Gecko and the extremely preppy CEO looking guy. I also hate the new Geico for motorbikes commercials with completely different writers. The humor involved in the commercial made me miss the old Geico commercials.

Lrrr_2004, I was wondering if anyone was gonna mention that. I HATE Old Navy commercials! They start singing, I just wanna stab them so bad, take out a shotgun, blow their bloody heads off! Their songs just are so damned annoying; DIE RUGBY BUNCH, DIE BERMUDA SHORTS PEOPLE, DIE RETARDED LADY WITH THE ANNOYING LAUGH!!!! Mwahahahahahaaaaaa...!!!

I think I'm gonna like this guy.

You know what commercials piss me off? The ones for Men's Warehouse. Now I don't know how far out these go(may even be local), but I hate them so very much. You see the guy who started the company talking about suits and acting like guys are the ones who should be(and are) concerned with their clothing at all times. "You've got to dress to impress on a date." NO! That's the woman's role. But see if I care if she looks like shit...I won't look any better.

Anyone seen that stupid commercial for KIA sports cars?  It has this monontinous song, "Start have a great life......."  and it shows a bunch of people taking turns driving the car!  I hate the Old Navy commercials, myself! 

Plus, I hate commercials about insurance and banks.  Like those Bank of America ones, that plays that retarded song!  I also hate Wachovia Securities, Kerr McGee, and that one bank investment commercial where it plays that Blondie song, "Call Me!" 

Also, am I the only one who's seen the Charles Schwab commercials that has one of their employers as kids?  Examples being that one where the kid mows a lady's lawn and makes lawn sculptures of her trees, and fixes up a statue. Also, that one where the kids are camping.  "I sure hope Roger brought enough firewood!"  "Yeah I want to make S'mores!"  Man, those suck!

Haven't seen it, but it sounds quite weird. But given that this thread exists, the following advert commercial thing is quite retarded.

I just saw that commercial for the first time, and it is indeed rather creepy. The camera lingers on the mom's sad, sad face for waaay too long after her oh-so-precious son asks about the grandma. It's just upsetting and morbid, as opposed to wistful-but-sweet. If I were a mother, I wouldn't want to feed my kid Cheerios; this commercial makes it seem like doing so will ensure your own tragic demise, and reduce you to nothing more than fodder for awkward breakfast-table conversation once you're gone.

There's this Progressive commercial (one of the ones with Flo and all that...) that has this wrestling announcer in it who says, "Let's get ready to RUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU UMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMBBBBBBBB BBLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLEEE EEEEEE!!!!!
for an unbelievably long time. Honestly, it probably lasts like 20 seconds!!! They run it every freaking day, and it gives me a small headache every time....
