Most Hated Commercials
« on: 04 Dec 2007, 21:54 »

At the moment, I'm really, awfully tired of these Alltel commercials featuring Chad, one of the biggest douchebags I've ever seen.  What are some ads that get your blood boiling?

Chad is from that cell phone company commercial where he shows up all of the other companies, dressed as nerds in contrast to him being cool

ohh man, there's too many to name.

The jewelry one with the vanessa carlton song, mostly because that song makes me want to puke. God I'm sick of that fucking song. Actually, pretty much every jewelry commercial.

Every McDonalds commercial ever

That new DirecTV commercial with Beyonce

the  Miller Light commercials that brag about them winning the gold medal in the "Best American Style Light Lager" category. So you won the gold medal in the Shitty Beer category, who gives a rat's ass?


Movie trailers that use really shitty or out of place music i.e. the Rambo one with Drowning Pool, or the music in This Golden Compass TV Spot


I haven't watched TV in a few days, but once I do I'm sure I'll remember more that I hate later.

Oh, there are so many...fortunately, with the advent of the DVR (aka TIVO), we never watch TV in real time any more except for sports, so we usually just fast forward through the commercials.  However.  The one I hate the most right now because it just creeps me out is the Cadillac commercial that ends with the line, "When you turn your car on, does it return the favor?"  GAH.  Ick.  And there are 2 versions, one with a guy saying it and one with a girl, and I have to say, the one with the guy is WAY creepier - he manages to deliver that line a way that makes him sound like a pedophile.

They are all over TV because I have cable, they're on whenever you turn on the goddamn radio, and I swear I pass by eight billboards for the station on my way to work. There's also one to the tune of "Jingle Bells" for the Christmas season, and there was another one, but luckily I have managed to forget about it.

The one for Snickers with the viking throwing trash cans into a car. Nonsensical, absurd, and VIKINGS. Good commercial.

I have to second this.  Normally I hate commercials of any kind, but I loved those commercials, and I actually liked Snickers before I saw them, so it's even more awesome.

So why am I dressed up like a pirate in this restaurant?

Candy commercials are almost always excellent. Although the new one for Starburst where the Beluga whale vomits on those guys is gross enough that I can't enjoy the absurd quality.
Definitely not as good as the "Berries and Cream" commercial they had.

Here's the most annoying part of my most hated advertisment. It played every commercial break for at least a week. I've never been more aggravated by a commercial in my life.

That "Skittles Touch" ad is gold. Good find. Candy sells itself. Thus, the ad agencies get more room than most to toss around whatever ideas they have.

Those aren't nearly as bad as the OK Cable commercials. They're original songs, written by actual bands, about a cable company. Those commercials annoyed me to no end.

I hate all the Visa ads where everyone's having a dandy time shopping and paying with their Visa card only to be inconvenienced by someone using some sort of archaic system of payment like cash. Last I checked, cash didn't involve anyone checking my ID, waiting for machines to approve my card, or me signing something.

I hate the before mentioned Starburst commercial with the vomiting whale. If there was ever anything that made me not want Starburst, it would be that. It's like the Ad Executives at Starburst saw all the Skittles commercials, and said "We need to copy that, that absurdity is genius." and then created the worst possible recreation of a Skittles commercial ever.

Time Warner Cable used to show a commercial having to do with Russian technical support and a really shoddy map of the US that had maybe 6 states, including "Big Dakota" and "The Mexico".

Good commercials:
-The Big Ad (for Carlton Draught)
-any Terry Tate video (Terry's World might be my favorite)
-a select few super bowl commercials from the past few years (rock paper scissors and crime-deterrant cell phone are favorites)

Bad commercial:

Seven words. "So easy a caveman could do it."  AAAAAAAARRRRRRGGGGHHH.

Even this one?

Actually, it's because the Terry Tate videos that are longer than like a minute aren't actually commercials.  There's one in that youtube link that's only about a minute long, and it's heavily censored.  That's one of the ones they showed during the Super Bowl a few years back.

But you didn't need to know that.  BECAUSE THEY'RE FUNNY.

I am so sick of watching the Wal*Mart commercials when they play jingle bells or whatever with the lights...arrrrgh. PLUS, their uniforms piss me off! they have AWESOME shirts --why can't I wear a shirt like that?! C'mon!! (The ones we are actually issued are navy blue w/ buttons and collars, the ones they wear in the commercial are royal blue with a v-neck and collar...very awesome and not as drab).

Plus, I am very annoyed when people come in and say, "So you guys really got more cashiers working through the holidays?" and I'm like, "I don't fuckin' know...are you gonna buy something or just annoy the shit out of me."

...I need a new job. I hate people. Especially festive ones. Argh. [/rant]

http://youtube.com/watch?v=pIb-boiAnRM

Not because they're the worst I can think of, but because they were the ones that everyone around me kept singing and/or dancing to, so they were just so fucking annoying. Also, the pizzas aren't even any good.

That's out of Denver? It's a wonder I've never heard of that before. Local commercials always tend to be terrible, but not aggressively terrible.

Also, ambulance-chaser commercials. Here in Colorado I grew up being inundated with Franklin D. Azar commercials. Then this old "Bulldog" guy comes along and starts airing all these ads, and all of a sudden Franklin D. Azar becomes "Frank The Strongarm Azar". It was sad, irritating and funny all at the same time.

Where the fuck do they get those big ass bows?!?! Seriously! They're in commercials all of the time, but have you ever actually one or gotten one on a gift car? Where the crap would you even go to purchase such a thing? Do they just buy a shit-ton of ribbon and tie them themselves or what?! It is an anomaly we are failing to understand.
