I haven't read the thread yet, so this one may have been mentioned already. I don't even know the product, but it's the one where the husband and wife come into the kitchen to praise the appliances for their work, tells them to get a good night sleep, and ends with the husband chest bumping the fridge. It's annoying on so many levels that it actually puts me in a bad move.


When I saw this thread again, that is the first one that came to mind. I also cannot stand the one with the twin girls in front of the oven. Also IKEA:wall:

I love the Geico Gecko, and really dislike Flo from Progressive. I like the Ikea "Get some rest!" woman.

The Charmin Bears must GO! NOW! T.M.F.I! Not TMI, TMFI! Especially the one with the telescope! Ewwww!

Hey, the Colon Lady! Take laxative right before you get on an airplane! Yep, that's just when to take it, for sure.

Ocean Spray guys standing in the cranberry bog - yeah, that's really gonna get me to buy your product. TMI, TMI.

Right now I'm kinda creeped out by the bangs on that little blond girl at the end of the Sun Chips eco-bag commercial. "That's Sun Chips' change. What will yours be?" and then she turns and departs with her mother. The bangs look like about 75% of her hair was pulled to the front, cut, dyed another color from the rest of her hair, and lacquered in place. Totally natural.

Bob's Home Furniture ads drive me crazy. I especially can't stand them saying "slippery as a sidewinder." Sidewinders are desert snakes. They are dry, not slippery. snoopysnake says, Bob, you cannot have any snake references in your ads. Better yet, no ads at all.

The ad I love more than any other right now is the Friskies Adventureland, where kitty goes through the cat door into kitty wonderland and then home again. I especially love the little boat the cat climbs aboard.

I totally hate those VW ads where one person punches another when they see a VW of a certain colour - it just grates on me and has made me certain never to buy a VW!!

I love those ads.

Totally natural.I've never seen that commercial -- although I confess that I have bought an eco-bag of Sun Chips. :shuffle: About "unnatural" bangs -- I remember a rather strange girl in junior high whose "bangs" were the most bizarre ever -- they were folded, not cut. :eek: From the crown of her head they were combed forward, then folded back and held in place with an extra large barrette. The only reason that this was at all possible was that her hair was very oily and always looked as if it hadn't been washed in over a week. :scream:

If anyone ever tries to play Punch Buggy with me because of those g--d--- VW commercials they're gonna get punched, all right. (Though, okay, the one that ends with Stevie Wonder is funny.) It's only supposed to count with a VW BUG--not the new one, the OLD ones. Not every overpriced BMW-wannabe with a VW badge on it. (And if ANYONE ever does it when they see a Porsche, I don't CARE who owns whom, I will run them over with my car.)

IIRC the reason the doctors wanted (maybe still do) a woman to have a blood test was because we could mis-read the results of a home pregnancy test.

Those Progressive insurance ads with annoying "Flo" aired every 5 minutes it seems on any AOL radio station. Hate, hate, hate!:mad:

Glad somebody resurrected this thread so that I can state how much I hate, Hate, HATE, HATE those Brawny paper towel commercials with the singing "Brawny guy" on the wrapper. Not only does the voice over not fit his face, I can't stand his looks! :lynch: to whoever approved this commercial.


I totally hate those VW ads where one person punches another when they see a VW of a certain colour - it just grates on me and has made me certain never to buy a VW!!

So very much WORD to both of these - they're like nails on a chalkboard.

I must be one of the only people on the planet that isn't bothered by Flo the Progressive gal. Those commercials crack me up for the most part.

My latest commercial that drives me bonkers (and there's a "newer" version of it now) - the one for Kit-Kat, with a bunch of crunching and "mmmmm-ing" that "sings" the Break Me Off A Piece of that Kit Kat Bar" jingle. I pretty much despise having to listen to people making yummy orgasmic Mmmms and ahhhhs, etc. when eating anything (which goes a long way to why I don't like watching a lot of cooking shows, even though I love to cook).

I'm w/Cyn, I hate food smacking sounds. Uncouth.

I hate that commerical for Strive gum, where they knock people out to get their gum. "Chew another piece already" It's non-sensical and mean.

Lastly and again, Jamie Lee Curtis & those Activia commercials. They are just getting worse & worse.

I do love the most recent Kotex commercial where the girl makes fun of all the commercials "on my third day I just want to dance & twirl" So true, so true, even if it is selling Kotex in colored wrapping.

I love those guys--they crack me up. "Your Wednesday just freed up" :rofl:

I like Flo too--she's a hoot. There was a brief article about her in the Parade magazine a month or so ago. She has a cat.

I can't stand the punch someone when you see a VW commercials. They make me want to punch someone. :lol:

You're not. I don't mind Flo either. Then again, I also like the wind-up doll in the Pristiq ad. I think it's a good analogy for the way clinical depression can sap your energy and joie de vivre.:)

Oh man, how could I forget the most obnoxious commercial airing right now?

It's the one for Staples, with the idiot guy screaming "THAT'S A LOW PRICE!!!!" at the top of his lungs in a really grating voice. If that weren't bad enough, he gets another guy (IIRC wasn't he in the movie Sideways?) screaming the same thing.

Hate. HATE. HAAAAAAAAAAATE.
