    Most Annoying Commercial

    I'd add a poll, but there are just too many options...

    I would say either the "I Lowered My Cholesterol" guy, or that one commercial for a local car dealer featuring an incredibly annoying, upbeat, all-too-friendly guy with the ugliest mullet I've ever seen.

    I could go on all day about commercials. Local commercials are always the worst.. but we'll void those because everyone sees different ones.

    As far as majorly broadcasted commercials. I absolutely HATE the Dr. Scholl's "gellin" commercials. I hate McDonald's commercials (basketball on rollerblades is kewl?!?! News to me) and the damn credit card commercial with the annoying lady behind the counter who comments on every card. She's not funny and all's it makes me want to do is hit her.

    I LOVE the gellin commercials. They are delightfully kitschy.

    under armor (please protect this house)
    Corrs lite (somebody's gotta feel this)
    mc donald's (i'm lovin it)
    xbox (it's good to play togevah)
    can you hear me now, good
    i call it my "STFU" plan
    subway (the music changes from indian snake charmer to that "level complete" music in duck hunt at the cue of "subway, eat fresh")
    IBM (The annoying bald kid)
    any car commercial ever intvented

    pickup trucks, I don't know if you have to deal with these elsewhere but here are the three things i have to put up with:
    Ford is the best in Texas
    Chevy, driving Texas
    Bigger in Texas better in a dodge

    AH!! i cain' decide which one makes me more of a Texan!!!!

    Want some melon?

    I hate the tampon commercials where the guy is too dumb to realize he grabbed the girls' tampon. Imagine if guys made a commercial where a girl looked at a video game and mistook it for Play Doh or something equally moronic. There'd be feminist outrage, but it's ok to put a guy on a commercial (who has a girlfriend by the way) who is too dumb to know what a tampon looks like.

    I also hate all the Rally's "You gotta eat" commercials.

    A loca car dealer ad which has the Ghostbusters theme music but with their own lyrics...i.e "If you need a car, or a truck or a van,who you gonna call? CALL DESERT!"
    Now imagine this being sung by random strangers and the owner's family and elvis impersonators and old women and other Las Vegas "performers".

    I hate the gellin ads, mcdonalds ads, Arby ads.
    I like the current burger king ads though...Loved the one where one guy copied another guy's whopper. Gy asked him if he copied his whopper. Pure silence for like 10 seconds while various different facial expressions go across the other guy's face. Hilarious.

    I'm gonna have to go with "any commercial played in a movie theater after I paid all that damn money to sit down in front of the screen." Sheesh. If you're making money off of my presence in the seat then you had BETTER not try to make more money off of me by allowing me to pay to watch ads.

    you mean the Dr. Pepper commercials...cuz those weren't too bad. the one with garth was better than the one with reba and what's her name. i havne't seen many of the commercials you guys are talking aobut...i don't have cable and I rarely watch TV...i don't have one at my apartment. But I do listen to the radio and nothing is more annoying than the Cars for Kids commercial. If you haven't experienced that one you can not even begin to express irritation. One night I sang myself to sleep to that jingle...It made me crazy. i called the radio staion and told them i'd donate a car if they stopped running the ad. even the hosts of the shows it was on during were mocking it. It was terrible...i think the cars for kids organization doesn't really exist...i think that was just another terror attack.
