Annoying commercials revisited

    We've done this before but it has been awhile so I figured I'd start a new one since one commercial is being played so often and is driving me crazy. It's the Dr. Z talking about Chrysler thing and I can't stand it. It's replacing Geico in my mind for ridiculousness.

    What are some other annoying ones?

    Two of the Geico commericals, with Little Richard and Charo, are annoying. The other two are sweet, especially movie announcer guy.

    The most annoying out there right now... the goddam Dr. Sholls commercials. Are you gellin? Like Magellan? Are you serious? It makes me NOT want to buy the shit. It also makes me want to beat the actors with a 2-iron, then ask them if they're gellin.

  6. Flomax has to have the gayest commercial in the history of TV (or at least since the last Mentos commercial)

    The early versions of those gellin' commercials included a line, "like a felon," the company later pulled because of the negative connotations. Good stuff.

    There are these commercials advertising Under Armour clothing that run constantly on the local sports station here that consist of this big gentleman screaming "WE MUST PROTECT THIS HOUSE!"

    I hate them with all my being.

    At some point around the year 1998, a well-attended symposium for car dealers included a television advertising workshop. At this workshop, a speaker suggested that using one's own teen-aged, or even pre-teen, children as shills for the car dealership is a surefire winner for a TV commercial.

    That speaker should now be hunted down and tortured.

    Those damn "click-clack" ads aren't much better.

    I keep expecting Dr. Z to go Sgt. Schultz and start saying, "I know nothing!"
    Between the VW German couple and Dr. Z, Deutschland is making a hell of a comeback.
