No fair, I already called the gorilla.

Most commercials are okay with me, as long as I don't see them over and over and over again. And as long as they aren't British. Britain has terrible commercials.

probably the worst one i've seen is a mcdonalds one where the guy brings home a friend who starts rapping in spanish and his friend is like, wtf is this?! he goes, you said you wanted a spicy RAP...and of course they were talking about the Chicken wrap with spanish spices or something. (everyone sounded really stereotypically mexican in this commercial)

Yeah, McDonald's tries to look real diverse and accepting, but they typically just end up propagating stereotypes.

Ditech.com: Their tagline is "People are smart." I think that says it all.

Those air freshener commercials with the CGI animals. Because one of them involved an elephant married to a centipede.

THAT IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR SO MANY REASONS.

Totally possible! after all, the elephant was the female. If it were the other way around, there might be some....logistical problems.

Yeah, no. I already figured that the sex basically involves him crawling up in her and skittering about to get her off...and then vomited until I cried.

For some reason, I hate those commercials for the nasal allergy spray with the CGI bee, voiced by Antonio Banderas.  Something about the idea of a bee with a stuffy nose creeps me the fuck out.

I hate most holiday commercials, except the holiday hawk, I find that amuisng. What really bothers me is the message of christmas commercials. I know theres one out for one of the car companies where the husband suprises his wife with a new car. He tricks her into coming outside by saying he can't pick their son up from materialism practice so she gets all pissy, hangs up the phone, and emerges from the house and *SUPRISE* a new car! Then she loves him again. As far as I can tell, this commercial is telling me that if I ever get married to expect my wife to be shitty with me until I buy her a car. It would be a lot simpler if netwrosk just played a commercial that says "Single and poor? YOU FAIL AT CHRISTMAS!"

I hate commercials for local business with terrible acting and awful jingles.  They drive me up the walls.  There's significantly less of them with Dish Network though.

Sleep Country USA.  Their jingle is disgustingly catchy.

And that internet-provider commercial with the grossly saccharine redhead female.  I hate her acting so much I don't even remember the name of what she was advertising. x)

Everest College commercials.  They make me feel lazy even though I am going to school full time, and yet some how it always feels like the guy is talking right to me.  Hell, they don't even offer anything I would ever want to take.

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.

Fuck Frank Azar, he's such a douche.  He got arrested a few years back for running from the police after a DUI, or something like that.  And those Chubby commercials are disgusting.  I usually see them on during football games, and it makes me go, "what?"  Ugh. 

I find a lot of Beer commercials really amusing though.  Anyone remember this one?  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A9fY3rpF2bU

The one that is still stuck in my head is the old Massengil. With the little girl asking her mommy,  "Mom, do you ever get that,not so fresh feeling?"   Then her mom looks at her and smiles. I sometimes wonder how much it takes to pay someone to come on to national tv, and talk about how much they smell downstairs!

First thing I thought was that he was an asshole who never keeps his commitments and she's so lazy that she can't lift a finger to help her husband.  It seemed like they had deap marital problems not easily solved by a new car. 

Crappy commericals should not be making think about the relationship of two strangers, who seem like wasps.

That was done in a single take? Very impressive.
Also, like most Geico commercials, but they can get overplayed.
Also, yeah, Starbursts and Skittles and such have really cool commercials.

Also, Billy Mays may get overly formulaic, but most of the products work pretty well.

Also, that old A&W commercial was AWESOME. I remember seeing it during a commercial break of Dilbert. It fit so well.


That said I did not see the Super Bowl minus the last couple of minutes and thus did not see any commercials.

It's this car dealership commercial with this girl always talking about how this certain dealership is her "one true love". I don't know, her voice and the whole concept of the commercia pisses me off.

Those terrible Victoria's Secret "Santa Baby" commercials made me want to kill.  Christ.  By the way, anyone from the gulf coast remember those awesomely bad commercials in the late 80s/early 90s for a furniture store where if you had bad credit, you could "SEE THE SPECIAL MAN!!!" in New Orleans?  I looked around on youtube for it but all I could find were more recent ones, with a different, less mumbling and decrepit "special man." 

Also, that RIP THINGS IN HAAAAALF commercial was hilarious  :laugh:

In the most recent Alltel commercials (as of writing this.) they have a new sprint guy. He used to be the tubby one. Now he has a fro and acne.

Obviously, you don't know the realism in that.
Little kids to that shit. It's awesome.

I fucking hate J. G. Wentworth Commercials. They're cheap and uncreative. At least Headon had a gimmick, even if it was an annoying one.
But J. G. Wentworth's "It's my money and I need it now," shit pisses me off. All I can see is wannabe actors at the casting call, repeating the same damn line over and over and over again. I hate actors. >[

I swear if I hear one more thing about in-home appointments I'm going to go set fire to the nearest Raymour and Flanigan (its only equal in awful, awful home furnishing commercials). The quality is so cheesy and amateurish that I naturally assumed it was some local crap, but apparently it's a commercial hated 'round the nation.

Don't even get me started on the Kidz Bop CDs.

If you are talking about the Australian version of Cadburys creame eggs, then that is a pretty accurate description of them. However if you are talking about the Irish/U.K. version, then damn you, just straight up damn you to hell.

Cadburys chocolate is completely different out here (Australia) than it is at home (Ireland), it doesnt have as much milk in it, so is reduced in its creamy goodness, and they made other changes too so that it doesnt melt as easily in the warmer climate, the end result being some of the nicest chocolate you can buy being turned into something not worthy of the name chocolate.

The creame eggs are even worse again! Not only is the chocolate different but the sugary goodness of the centre has been destroyed. Its almost as if they decided Llets make the filling look as much like a real egg as we can, and who cares if the result tastes like a sailors underpants after 6 months at sea without a change of underwear.
