Updated thread - What TV commercial gets on your nerves?
« on: December 01, 2006, 12:18:50 PM »
I can think of several and they don't even have to do with Christmas shopping:

Any goofyass eharmony.com couple's testimony.  Enough!  The Steelers-Browns are not the hottest rivalry in the NFL.

The bringing back of the Caveman in Geico commercials.


The "Head On" commercials are so bad they admit it on another form of the commercial.

The Canadian version of the Maxwell House commerical where they sing "Our House."

I LOVE how it's shot at a hockey rink, hockey players and figure skaters sing. I'm surprised they're not eating back bacon and pancakes with maple syrup around a stove in the middle of an igloo while singing.

I actually like the Geico ads, especially the news-talk spot.

You're dead on with the christmas commercials though, I have previously stated the Garmin sat-nav ads make me switch to anything else very quickly.

As for e-harmony, doesn't the doc seem really creepy to you. "We know you better than you know yourself, and we know who you'll fit with for a relationship that will last a lifetime."

What a smug prick.

Something about those Old Navy commercials creeps me out with the plastic-looking, too cute, smiling people.

How about the Heinken Light ads with the Pussycrack Dolls music in the background. Sorry, I don't want my beer to be a freak like you. Please go away.

All Geico commercials are awful. Period.

Now, in the NY metro area, the lottery commercials where the ring announcer takes off his mask is beginning to drive me crazy.

And most cell phone commercials -- you know, the ones about the network -- stink.

The Enterprise rental car commercial with "Moose," who's needs a snazzy ride so he can show up in style at his high school reunion. (Moose, I'm guessing, is a former second-team all-conference lineman who's now an insurance salesman in his hometown.) He does the move where he licks his fingers and then wipes his eyebrows with them. And when he shows up at the old high school, the ladies gather around him and purr, "Looking good, Moose."

Awful in its entirety. It's got to be a few years old now, but it's usually shown a lot during the NCAA Tournament, and for some reason I've seen it several times over the last week or so.

The one where the woman with the fucked rad is calling Enterprise from the "repair shop". And there's a big sign behind her that says "repair shop" in case she forgets where the fuck she is.

OK -- we all just finished a pretty nasty election cycle. Could somebody please tell that to Billy Harper?

Kentucky's gubernatorial election isn't for another 11 months. Heck, the primary is five-plus months away, yet this guy has been running ads since October touting his candidacy for next year's race.

Granted, few voters know who he is, and while running commercials ad nauseum may help his recognition numbers, I certainly doubt people will feel compelled to vote for him. Hell, if he gets elected, he may start running his 2011 re-election ads in December 2007!

The Dockers' "Go Boy Go" commercial.
Any whistling Wendy's commercial.
It is much, much more polite simply to tell someone "See you in hell" instead of "See you in court."

Every time I hear the Wendy's whistle, it travels up and down my spine. God, I hate that.

I can think of several and they don't even have to do with Christmas shopping:

Any goofyass eharmony.com couple's testimony.  Enough!  The Steelers-Browns are not the hottest rivalry in the NFL.

The bringing back of the Caveman in Geico commercials.

Not to nitpick, Yawn... OK maybe I am. But while the Browns-Steelers rivalry is not the "hottest" in the NFL right now, it's still a pretty big deal among the two teams. More so from the Browns side, but still a big deal.

Anyway, my vote is for the "This is Our Country." Ever notice how it's focusing on middle America and lacking ethnicities. Sorry, but my country has all kinds of colors and religions... not just white, Bible-beating rednecks driving Chevy pickups. Fuck.

This is Our Country is pretty damn bad.

But I'd have to say the worst would have to be those fricking Enzyte commercials and that insipid whistling!!!!!! Yikes!

BTW: Geico caveman commercials are great!

I can deal with just about any commercial on tv, but those VW ones with the accidents out of nowhere piss me off. I used to love VW and I actually dislike them now, solely because of those commercials.

The garmin ads have overtaken the Our Country ads as my least favorite, mostly for ruining one of my favorite Christmas songs for me.

I also hate all ads showing shiny, happy couples and cute babies, for no reason other than I am a bitter old woman.

I haven't encountered a non-awesome Geico spot yet. And the "go boy go" spots are sooo awful. And I normally like the Overstock woman. But that Christmas spot does not look like there are any real humans in it.

-- The PA Lottery ads where they sing the praises of giving lottery tickets as Holiday gifts (to the tune of 12 Days of Christmas) while some guy walks around giving out lottery tickets as holiday gifts.
-- The PA Lottery commercials with Gus the Groundhog (the second most famous groundhog in PA).
-- Any Enzyte commercial with that freaky smiling guy and his fugly wife... or any Enzyte commercial with that insipid whistling (MASH reference)

The Geico Caveman commercials rule... especially the one where he's rolling past the airport ad on the moving sidewalk and doubles back for a second look. Haven't we all done that a time or three in our lives?
