    It can be a single commercial, or a series of commercials for the same product. What just utterly pisses you off, makes you say, i am deliberately never buying their product because their ads annoy me so much...

    - I utterly hate the Geico caveman commercials...hate him, hate cavemen, the commercials are stupid and not even funny.
    - the commercials from some brand or other Beef Jerky, called "Messin with Sasquatch"...and features pairs or groups of idiots, playing jokes on "sasquatch" after eating a piece of beef jerky, before sasquatch than in vengeance throws them against a rock or something.
    - some insurance company (i think liberty mutual) where they play this wistful music, and they show people doing things like helping an old lady across the street, or letting someone pull ahead of them in traffic...they then say "when people do it, it is called "doing the right thing"...when it's an insurance company, they call it LIberty Mutual.:

    I don't know why, but those commercials just annoy the living hell out of me.

    which ones just totally piss you off or annoy you to no end?

    Billy Maise has built a whole franchise around high-pitch annoyance.

    How he's dodged assassination attempts all those years is still a mystery to me.

    I hate cavemen too. And I hate that little green critter selling insurance. And I hate all drug commercials --that is just dumb to push drugs and people go to the doc and tell the doc what they want instead of the doc telling us what we actually need. I hate really all commercials except the one with the goofy gal named "Flo" wearing white with heavy makeup selling insurance. I think shes kind of hot in a way.

    I'm going to like this thread. We have this local one for replacement windows where this woman from Long Island with a horrible accent, who is clearly the company owner's daughter or something, talks about how they'll virtually pay for themselves over time in heat savings...I just want to reach through the t.v. and strangle her to shut her up.

    ..and I approve of this ad....

    I've hated the Geico ads for years. Not watching too much, since I buy DVD's and rent films, I seldom see anything to the point of irritation. I did loath the whole "wassup?" ads a few years ago...

    The viva Viagra and the Denture ad with the old women singing bye bye paste. Utterly tasteless appeal to the old baby boomers bullshit with * star for quality

    I HATE the Tide,'talking stain' commercial.
    I never liked the Budweiser ads from the 80's with Spuds Mc Kenzie. Mainly because I think that particular breed is ugly as sin.

    The Head On commercial
    You know: Head On, apply directly to the forhead. Head On, apply..........
    Can't stand it.

    I hate the BK commercials with the King in them too. I think he's scary. I envision him being the serial killer in some bad horror movie and making burgers out of his victims. Needless to say, I don't eat Burger King anymore.

    I used to hate "this is your brain on drugs", now I hate, "what kind of being am I". Next they will accuse everyone that jerks off of murder.

    I hate the "Confused.com" commercials on British TV. Everytime I hear "Look what I've got on my laptop!" (his laptop is made of cardboard!)
    I want to kick that guy's face in! He's so annoying!:mad:

    YES!!!! i love that one too!

    sometimes commercials really do get it right...it is really sort of an "inspiring" commercial, which is hard to do without being cheesy or pandering.

    it is very genuine.

    YES!! "Oh my GAWD! Wadda noytmayehr!"

    She makes Tom Carvel sound like James Earl Jones.

    If I find her, she will disappear and not a jury in the state would convict me. I'd rather listen to Wagner's entire Ring Cycle arranged entirely for fingernails on blackboard than listen to that ad.

    There's a horrible life insurance ad on TV now that is SO cheap that they didn't even get live actors to do it. It's an entire nation-wide commercial that begins, "Bill, 42, had no life insurance. Then a friend died." The ad is composed of nothing but still pictures done using a Mac slideshow program so cheap and basic it comes bundled as part of the Macintosh operating system. It is SO ghetto.

    I hate drug ads too.

    I cancelled my Geico policy because of that stupid talking gecko. I really hate that thing. The cavemen are also stupid, but don't piss me off as much.

    The worst, though, are those Enzyte commercials with that smiling douchebag. I have to restrain myself from throwing things at the television when they come on. My only consolation is that the guy responsible for Enzyte is going to do 25 years in federal prison.

    You aren't the only one, Domisoldo. Any guy that gets that hopped up over toilet bowl cleaners and stick-on-the-wall coat hooks needs to get a life -- somewhere besides my TV screen.

    Thank you! Thank you!

    I've had the most raving fantasies about disposing of that man in outlandishly creative ways.

    I was about to institutionalize myself.

    T. Boone Pickens adds. I like the concept, but boy.. his commercials are on during every television break.
