Yes to those Vlasic ones--any of them. That pickle sound is really loud and strange. Never heard a pickle make a noise like that. And it happens so suddenly in the begining of the commercial that you miss what is suppose to be going on so it just one big confused mess of an ad. And someone got paid big money for that idiotic idea.

The first one I ever saw - they were at a sidewalk cafe and a girl was just getting ready to take a drink. It sounded like she cracked all of her teeth on the glass from jumping at the shock of the sound instead of the stork biting into a pickle! It still makes my teeth nervous!!

Oh there are just too many to choose from:

The ASPCA/animal organization donation pleas - I fully understand the message and am glad this is getting attention, but those ads are just. too. much. I have to change the station any time I hear "Always on My Mind," "Angel," etc., in the background of a voiceover during a montage of photos and videos abused animal are on the screen. Those ads don't just pull at heartstrings - it's more like ripping one's heart out and steamrolling it :(.

The creepy Hall's Re-Fresh drops ad with the Mary Kay LeTourneau/Vili Fualaau lookalikes in mom's son's dorm room making porno moaning sounds and :yikes: suggestive innuendo in their minds as they both pucker up (literally) with the drops in their mouths. Skeeves me out every damn time it comes on - I nearly sprained an ankle jumping over furniture to get to the remote :o .

Another one is the stupid Kit-Kat bar that has that stupid "Give Me A Break" song done to the tune of various crunching, smacking, and MMMMmming sounds of the people as they chow down on their mid-day snack. This ad turned me off Kit-Kats for good.

The Dannon Lite Yogurt bitch that Deep Throats a plastic container in the diary aisle and lets it drop on the floor while she stands there with an obnoxious, cutesy "I know what I did was wrong but aint' I just adorable?" look on her face. :rolleyes:

Any ad that has the phrase "He went to Jared's." Those bitches need to be slapped silly for being so shallow, and their SOs need to be knocked upside the head for falling into this gimmicky marketing scheme.

The Glade lady can GTFO my TV anytime :blah: .

Ditto for Jillian Barbieri's Nutri-System ads, any of the Yaz birth control bitches, and the water ballet dancing birth control bimbos (SundayMondayTuesdayWednesdayThursdayFridaySaturda yEveryday......).

Finally, the USA Network is going to drive me bonkers with their incessant self-promotion of their series. The latest promo ad for Psyche has the potential to incite a riot at my house. I fecking HATED the song "Private Eyes" by Hall & Oates back when it was a hit in the 80s, but now? Having to endure that smarmy, obnoxious twerp screeching the lyrics off-key (and prissing around as though he's the shit for putting on a mullet wig and doing horrific karaoke) is the stuff nightmares are made of.

USA also insists on showing promos for the return of "Burn Notice." :wall: . The show itself is utter shite, but I find the dude that stars in it to be repulsive - he's not good-looking or attractive, he cannot act worth crap, and again, swaggers around like he's some hot-snot babe magnet with a gun :blah: . The ad also uses one of the worst songs from 1985 (Power Station's "Some Like It Hot"), which only ads insult to injury.

By the same token, I usually watch Bravo. A lot. However, the overkill of ads for their series takes OTT to a whole new level. More often than not, if I'm watching something on that channel and it goes to a break, I channel surf, only to find something more interesting with fewer TV ad/promos.

I could rant plenty more, but I'll stop here :saint: .

Oh how could I forget that one! I hate that one too. To me her expression at the end is "I'm too pretty to get in trouble for doing this". Puke. Can't stand that commercial either.

I still can't figure out what's so horrible about taking a birth control pill everyday. It takes less than a second, eys?

The hair replacement ads usually irk me, except for the end of a recent commercial in which one satisfied customer says that doing something about his balding pate was "one of the best decisions I've ever made in my life". Oh, really, one of your very best? :cold:

Re: the pharma ads and the long list of possible side effects: SNL's "Happy Fun Ball" sketch was prophetic.

Any Hardees commercial, especially those devoted specifically to Thickburgers.

I hate all Hardees commercials, especially the ones with excessive eating noises, they're so gross!


If someone could ban cell phone commercials I would be ever so happy!

A few Canadian examples - the Tim Hortons Christmas ad where the guy mixes up the gifts and his buddy gets the cat T shirt and the crazy cat lady coworker gets the mug and gift certificate. It was amusing the first couple of times, but the it got old the next hundred times. And it seemed to be the only one they had...

The AMJ Campbell Van line ad - it's the one using stop action pictures with curling on the TV the guys are carrying. They probably spent $ 50 to make the ad and it's been run constantly during every curling event for the last 15 years at least.

The Strauss herb company ads were pretty cheesy as well. I don't see them anymore out east as they don't sponsor curling now, I think. The one with Randy Ferbey who looked like he had been left in the tanning bed for a extra few days...:lol:

:rofl: Yea, I've always wondered that myself too. Its like, get up/brush your teeth/take your birth control pill .... how hard is that?

Its kinda like that Sally Field commercial for Bonevia (sp?) where she used to have to take a pill once a week, but now with Bonevia she only has to take it once a month and she just doesn't have the time in her busy life to take a pill once-a-week so thank goodness for Bonevia and freeing up her busy life! :rofl: Gawd I hate that one too.

I think I'd be more likely to forget a once-a-month pill than one every day. If you take it everyday, it becomes a habit.

I think I could tolerate that one if she didn't get that stupid look on her face at the end. It would have been a big improvement if she'd let that thing drop, swing her head back and give a look that says "yeah--and you want that too, but it ain't gonna happen!" and stroll on off.
