Default Most Annoying TV Commercial

The one on TV that is the most annoying for me is the Direct TV one with the big guy and the little guy: I'd gonna eat ya....get in my belly....baby back,baby back......

Have to have the remote close at hand.

You think the Head On commercial is bad?

Just be glad the same company doesn't make a hemorrhoid cream.

Not really annoying, just getting old.... a few years back a local Office Supply store chain came up with a brilliant Back-To-School commercial featuring the Christmas song, "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year". It was clever at the time, but they're getting old now, even with new ones.

Any of the car or truck commercials that SHOUTS ...last day, deal of the day, etc,etc.
I hate it when they have the commercials louder than the program. Why is that?

The one commercial that makes me run for the remote control is the one that sings 1-800 MY LEMON. It is on every morning when I get ready for work. If I don't get the channel changed in time, that stupid song plays in my head for hours. Today I was so proud of myself for making it to the remote before they sang...only to change the channel to hear it a few minutes later on the new channel. I can't win!

So what is your favorite commerical on TV??? I like the Miller Lite men of the roundtable series.... especially the on with knocking bottle tops together... the great line from the cowboy... " ugh... sorry hollywood I ain't into that..." LMAO every time I see it Other good commercial is the VW Jetta real life crash series...

I'm with the OP on my least favorite one - that "get in my belly" thing. Ugh.
My favorites: the series for some male enhancement product (see how effective it is, I can't even remember the name) but "Bob" is the main character. They are all done in 50's retro style and lots of "droopy" symbolism. Last year I really liked the Toyota commercial where the testing engineer, Bob, was crashing cars with 3 little kids. "Do the red one bob". They were really cute.

Some years ago Miller had a series of combined sports for when the lady and man of the house can't decide what to watch on TV. They wer cute too.

Default Most Annoying TV Commercial

fasteddie, I agree wholeheartedly. My DW gets so angry at me for switching channels at every commercial. What's really bad is when you keep switching and thre is a commercial on all the channels at one time.

... particularly the ones that make you wonder what connection the commercial had to the product advertized.

Most annoying has to be Appliance Direct (you paid too much) and then when they added the annoying scratch and dent woman they got even worse....would someone please buy her a new dress?
Favorite commercial has to be the Geico with Little Richard translating for the client.

Default Most annoying t.v. commercial

The attorney/injury ones for the sue happy #$$% sipping his brew when he should be looking for a job.

I love the geikos and one commercial years ago when the Bernese Mountain dog takes all his friends for a ride and the guy chases them down the street in his pajamas...priceless.

The Head-On wins for me!!! We actually joke about this at work as I have a patient who always greets me with the statement "I am so dizzy, I have a terrible headache." We want to buy the Head-On for her just to keep her from saying that!

Wiscguy - I hate to do this, but it is the men of the SQUARE TABLE - not the round table in the Miller commercials. And I find those commericals mildly entertaining....from a female POV!

Some car company - I forget which, but regular people are sitting in a car talking about something - and suddenly they have an accident. Then the announcer says "accident happen - don't let this happen to you"

In the commercial you assume no one is seriously hurt because they don't say - but the collision in the commercial is so surprising and graphic that I am sure some people who have had traumatic accidents get so upset when they see these they go into PTSD

Thanks for the correction... you are correct it is men of the square table in the Miller Lite commercials..... I am usually laughing too much to notice. The Man Laws are usually good for a laugh.

Paul... the commercials you are referring to are for the Volkswagon Jetta..... and I on the other hand find them very impactful(no pun intended). They are trying to market the great safety record for the car and what better way. Shocking and unsettling yes.. but if you watch commercial closely... you see all the people in the accident walk away uninjured.

Seems like everyone has "local" commercials that they hate... and I dislike the lawyer commercials in my area... all are ambulance chasers!!

Another one I like is a local one for the Milwaukee Brewers on Fox Sports Net. Ballplayers always slap each other on the ass for a job well done... and it is a play on this where regular people slap each other on the ass .... there is one.. where a woman is bent over a grocery freezer and a guy slaps her... and she stands up with this puzzled look on her face... and ends with a guy standing in line at a fast food counter and another guy spanks him... it is just hilarious!! The slogan at the end is that we are all Brewer fans... Wondering if they play this in other baseball markets too???

Otown and Angela, I agree 100% with the Appliance Direct, and Paul I think that the car crash commercial (white car, right?) is for VW.
