The only commercials that I actively dislike are the ones that ditch all forms of creativity for the sake of yelling "LOW PRICES! SALE SALE SALE!" at the camera.

I really dislike the shampoo commercials that just feature women dancing around with, like, fruit or something falling in the background and looking so thrilled to wash their hair. Shampoo does not make you that happy!

I feel the same way about the yogurt commercials where the people moan like they're having an orgasm instead of eating fermented milk.

At least yogurt tastes good. With shampoo, the bottle claims that it's strawberry flavoured, when in actual fact it tastes like shit!

The bottles actually claim it's flavored? I've never seen that, but I have accidentally gotten my cheap, non-flavored shampoo in my mouth before and it is not pleasant.  smile
Never mind, you were probably being sarcastic...I'm bad at picking up on that sometimes.  big grin

I'm guessing that he meant strawberry scented?

Truck commercials annoy me.  The camera angles and lines of the trucks and character of the announcer's voice so blatantly appeal to the primal instincts (and societal conditioning) of guys to be tough and strong.  I mean, how practicable is a huge gas-guzzling 5L v8 beast that can haul tons of crap and tow a 30,000 pound trailer?  And is nearly impossible to find an adequate size parking spot for?

I hate pretty much ALL car commercials. They always start out with something completely random, like playing catch in the forest, and then suddenly it's a car commercial.
For example, I saw one today all about the creator of bikinis, and I figured it's some sort of Victoria's secret commercial or some crap like that. Then, all of a sudden, it cuts to a couple of red Mazdas driving on a mountain. How the heck is the creator of bikinis and the newest Mazda at all related?!?!

I hate any and all Hardy's commercials and it's because of the announcer. When he grumble-wheezes about "Hardy's Thickburger" it makes my skin crawl.

One commercial I have a love/hate relationship with is Floor Trader. It worms into my brain so that while I'm trying to focus on indemnification language revisions I'll find myself humming "Floor, floor, floor, FLOOR TRADER! Deals you'll love, oh YEAH." It's almost as terrible/awesome as Agee's Bicycles. Listen to this song at your own peril:

Stupid car commercial about this girl driving down the street in a car with her current boyfriend and her ex apparently is a vampire and like lands on top of her car. It wouldn't be so bad if he didn't purposely get himself hit by her car.

Oh, I should have realized that. Sorry for my slowness.  smile

Truck commercials annoy me.  The camera angles and lines of the trucks and character of the announcer's voice so blatantly appeal to the primal instincts (and societal conditioning) of guys to be tough and strong.  I mean, how practicable is a huge gas-guzzling 5L v8 beast that can haul tons of crap and tow a 30,000 pound trailer?  And is nearly impossible to find an adequate size parking spot for?

Those really bother me, too. On a semi-related note, I really dislike the commercials for products like that type of Dr. Pepper that was advertised as being "for men only!!" Along with being annoying, that marketing strategy makes no sense to me; why say a product's "only for men" when that would cut out half of your potential buyers?


Also, this isn't a commercial anyone but me would hate, but my ex-boyfriend's dad owns a company in town that runs pretty frequent advertisements on TV. They've got a new one out that features the ex, and I hate having his face unexpectedly pop up on my TV! I try so hard to avoid him at all school events, so now he's invading my TV?  no no

I don't like these mint commercials that have been on for a couple of years. It shows someone standing in an all-white room eating some really slowly, and then it shows their eyes dialating, them getting goosebumps, and their hair blowing around. And the entire commercial, they make these creepy moaning sounds that make you uncomfortable to be watching the commercial. Then at the end, some disturbing whispering man says 'Taste the Sensation'.......

DISTURBING.

I have to admit I sort of love, hate the Zesty commercials. It's so fricken dumb it's funny.

Another dumb commercial is the one for progressive, the rate suckers one. Where a bunch of random people fly on the car and start sucking it. The kid is so freaked out. laff

Flo is annoying. Tries to be funny and isn't.
The Bill Hader cell phone commercials make me laugh for whatever reason. Perticually, the one where he gets mugged.

 Those are just weird, I hate when they zoom into an eye and the pupils change in size, they look like their on something.
"Everyone go eat those mints and you'll look high"

"Really" *eats a mint than goes and looks in the mirror* "What the hell"

"What, do you look high?"

"No I read the ingredients, what the hell is Emulsifier" *throws the mint in the garbage and goes and eats some bananas*

Oh, and I hate the 800 commercials. 1-800-1234, oh and incase you didn't hear me, I'm going to repeat it a million more times. 1-800-1234, remember it's 1-800-1234

When I first saw that one, the first thing that came to my mind was, "Worst. Slogan. Ever." Isn't it a little bit obvious that Food is for people that are Hungry?

^I hate that slogan, too. It reminds me of something I see constantly on competition shows like Iron Chef where the contestants are always saying, "I came here to win." It makes me think, no kidding, you came to this contest to win? I'm sure everyone else is vying for second place.

^ Yeah any food commercial is pretty much dumb. Except m and m's (I get all Billy West fangirly.), and sometimes Doritos.
That said, I think there are a total of five commercials I like. And most of them are for shows I like or music I like.

Or you just go crazy and say

"OH MY GOD, IT'S BILLY WEST, I WANT TO BE JUST LIKE HIM,"

Then I usually say something stupid like "So you want to be old...........a guy..........bald...,"

Hate that one for Dealdash.  That lady in it looks like a Roseanne/Melissa McCarthy half-breed.

Also hate that one for Xfinity where a guy is about to move and calls his friends to help.  One friend was at the beach, the other is at the mall, and one is playing video games.

I hate those "Chef Boyardy" (dont think I spelled that right) where the kid is dancing then the picture says "chef don't judge." First of all, it's just really dumb. Second of all, the guy on the picture is sitting there smiling almost like he's laughing at 'em.


Wow, wonder how I thought of that.

The slogan wouldn't be so terrible if the kid just wasn't dancing.

That Coca-Cola Zero commercial (it's not really new), where people going to watch a movie are given cup of Coca-Cola and then revealed it's actually Zero, is really annoying. Well it doesn't taste exactly same, but the commercial itself is just irritatingly exaggerated and not believable. Also the logic of Coca-Cola Zero cup underneath another indicating the taste...

Similiarly with one car commercial, that was showing the car driving and in the end it was asked "Did you notice the woman with the leopard?". Duh... of course I didn't, when it's put in a corner and picture is constructed the way that people will pay attention to part of the picture, where the car is.

Well, those were two annoying ones, but there is much worse commercials out there (Why would they put lots of money to make such terrible commercials?).

So that people will remember them.  And maybe if there's a leopard plush toy in the dealer showroom the next time you're car shopping, your subconscious will be primed with thoughts of a Thundercougarfalconbird and you'll be an easy mark.

The Swiffer commercial about the old people. Something funny happened yesterday. I muted a commercial but it still had the Closed Captioning on. It was about people with Severe Knee Pain. Then suddenly the commercial stopped and there was in it's place a local car dealership commercial with some dude screaming. The closed captioning still said, "I have Severe Knee Pain", and the car dealer who was screaming looked like he was saying he had severe knee pain! !

Too bad it was a hemmroid commercial!

I hate all Swiffer commercials. In my opinion, they are some of the dumbest ones on TV.

Anyway, I just remembered the Febreeze commercials in which people are blindfolded and sent into dirty places, and they don't even realize it because of the Febreeze. I find that pretty unrealistic.
