I think that new dunkin' donuts commercial with the TV is ridiculous and the very definition of oxymoron.

I thought the same thing when I saw that.  "Hey get your kids off the couch and watching TV, and get them eating some donuts".

I'm beginning to grow very annoyed with the Volkswagen "what the people want" commercials.

I now have a love/hate felling for the McDonalds "Give me back that Filet-O-Fish" commercial. I get a strange kick out of it when watching it. However, then that stupid song gets stuck in my head and I can't get rid of it for hours.

I love this topic.  I love to bitch about commercials I hate.  Living in Canada, commercial hate comes to a whole other level.  I'm pretty sure we have a law, that only the same five actors can work in tv commercials every eight months.  With our small population there are only so many commercials we can support at a time let alone actors, so they are played repetitively as all hell.  I think all Canadian commercials should be shot with an alternate ending with a ninja jumping in to behead everyone with a sword just to break up the monotony.  There was this one campaign for "Whoppers" that really drove me close to the edge.

Wow... It looks like they may have "Slap Chopped" each other quite literally... :o

One that subject AOTS had a funny clip the other day where they review the "slap chop" and whichever one it is that Billy Mayes pedals.

The new commercial that make me change the channel immediately is the SpungeBob/Burger King commercial. I don't think Ed Wood ever made something that bad.

I can't tell if that commercial is marketed towards kids or adults. I like how they dragged Sir Mix a Lot out of the mothballs for that commercial though.

The new commercial I hate is that Wendy's chicken sandwich with the evolving ex-con looking guy. Sure, I'd love to celebrate my new promotion at work and learn how to take care of my pregnant wife, but I MUST EAT MY CHICKEN SANDWICH FIRST

This needed a bump because I can't stand these new Verizon/AT&T commercials fighting over maps. The worst ones are the AT&T ones with Luke Wilson portraying Affable Luke Wilson. But Verizon's are just as lame.

Another "favorite" of mine is the new one with the chick who claims to have lost weight eating at TACO BELL. Jared Fogle and Subway it ain't.
