Commercials You Hate
« on: May 5, 2004, 02:52 PM »
Are there any commercials out there that due to the people in them, the product it is for, the frequency of its appearance, or something else about it just starts to anger you each time you see it?  For me, there are a couple off the top of my head.  I'm not sure if these are just shown in our area or not but....

 - First of all, a series of Hardees commercials shown around here (not really showing anymore), that was featuring their burger and saying how it was just as good as a sit down restaurant burger, etc.  Anyways, the one that especially bothered me was the one about a guy on a construction crew who had to get lunch (since he was the new guy), and brought back Hardees burgers....and the construction crew told him "Hardees? We don't eat Hardees"...then they proceed to try the burgers and tell him he's getting lunch all week.

 - The other one that is really bothering me now is a new McDonald's commercial showing around here (for a while now I guess), with four or five guys playing cards and "gambling" using McDonald's fries.  The song that accompanies this commercial gets me in the spine :).

How about you, any commercials that annoy you?

That McDonalds French Fry poker one is a great one for some of the stupidest dreck I have ever seen.  Who the hell is going to play a card game that last 20 minutes to win a plate full of cold ass fries...come on.  Then the song on top of it...nice one Brian :)

There's this new SUV commercial that's on every 1/2 inning during baseball games where these insufferable little turds keep saying "take me fishing because _________."

It freaked me out pretty bad.

EDIT:  And how can I forget the "Las Vegas" commercials series where this guy is in his room asking the front desk for a wake up call then he's like, "uh, can I get it to my cell phone, i'm not sure if I'm going to be in my room tomorrow morning."

Then the screen flashes to "What happens here, stays here."

I do not like what that commercial is promoting at all.

Yeah, but at least CZJ's somewhat good to look at.

Enzyte with "Bob".  They run 2 back-to-back for some odd reason, and they're proof positive that women aren't the only ones who society puts "requirements" on to make them feel good about themselves.

Not to mentionn they're F'n annoying after a while...   They're all that's on some stations.  Comedy Central and Spike play those Enzyte coms religiously I think.

Those Orbit gum commercials with the Brit narrator --"Duh-tee mouth?"

Not campy enough to be funny. Yet plenty lame.

She's cute though, at least there's a single redeeming feature to them.

Otherwise they're horrible indeed.

Anyone ever catch the Ron Jeremy Infomercial that's on late at night for "male enhancement"?  Got a bunch of adult film stars on it and stuff...

Not one I can't STAND since as an infomercial I simply don't watch it, but the concept alone is kind of amusing.

ALL Fast Food commercials are "teh suck". I can't decide which are worse: McDonald's (Baby Shower, Poker Game along with terrible music), or Burger King (New ones with the office environment).

I hate just about all car and cell phone commercials.

That's all I got for now.

Yeah, she's cute and she has the accent.  ;)

I hate the diamond commercial where the guy is yelling in some public plaza "I LOOOOVE THIS WOMANNNN!!!" and then he gives her the diamond. Lame.

Any commercial that's verrrrry long and isn't a Victoria's Secret commercial (those can be as long as they want)

Valtrex commercials (ok, ok, you've got herpes. How does that affect your ability to canoe and play tennis?)

The entire McDonalds "I'm lovin' it" campaign.

Drug commercials that don't tell you what the drug is for...like the Guy who throws the football through the tire

"Please give me the drug so I can throw the football through the tire better"

Ok, I've got a new one.  Have any of you caught the new "McChicken Selects" commercials from McDonald's?  I think there are a few of them that I have seen, usually consisting of someone...mostly all alone with their box of chicken selects, and screaming at everyone to stay away...accompanied with faux karate moves.  These commercials have only recently started showing, and I'm already sick of them.
