    Either TV or radio, there are commercials out there that must make you think of fingernails across a chalkboard. Or they are just run so often they become that way and you want to pull your hair out. So name them here!

    The most recent one for me is the Dockers commercial with the guys marching along singing that stupid "I wear no pants" song. UGH!:mad:

    Here in the UK, the "Go Compare" ads and the "We Buy Any Car" ads are the worst >.<

    Those new Ford ones with the "regular Joe" guy in the baseball hat talking cars with other "regular" folks. I want no part of the same car that jackwad drives. :mad:

    x3. If their goal was to create the most annoying advertisement, then they succeeded.

    Oh damn, I forgot about that one! I have to grab the remote quickly to hit "Mute" for that. Wonder if Staples would care that I no longer go to their store because I hate that commercial so much?

    I don't like the Geico commercials anymore. The gecko and cavemen are just way overused now.

    Not trying to get flamed here, but I think the Droid commercials are kinda scary. I mean it looks like a trailer for Aliens or something. Are they afraid of making it look like a geek-only phone so they go to the extreme?

    And it's that vs the iPhone happy candy canes and unicorns commercials that make you want to puke rainbows.

    There has to be a middle ground that is more appealing (to me anyway).

    The new I Can't Believe It's Not Butter commercial with the woman singing/dancing disco. Can't stand that one.

    I've always hated the Allstate commercials. That guy has an extremely annoying voice, imo.

    I can't believe this hasn't been mentioned yet..

    The Bing commericals "flashing,,, lights ight ights ights" I think about jamming nails into my eyeballs and ears..

    ALL radioshack commericals.. especially those stupid butterfly ones.

    There are more that will come to me later. but, the bing one is definitely top of the list..

    ALL OF THE INSURANCE COMMERCIALS! My god! We get enough of those yet? I also hate, as previously stated, that Apple puts out these commercials where they say this app is only on the iPhone. Then you see it on your Android device or somewhere else on another smartphone. Lastly, I hate the Staples commercials.

    Funny story about the apple thing. One of my iFriends has the Open Table app, and low and behold the iPhone commercial pops up, with Open Table no less, and says "Only on iPhone"

    So my friend says, yeah see, I got it. Try doing that on your phone.

    I said, like this?

    Pulled out phone, and wiped that grin right off his face.

    The ones that I won't sit through show people at a fast food joint engorging themselves with the greasy, drippy junk they sell at those places.

    The close-ups are particularly disturbing.

    It also annoys me when those people in the fast food commercials take itty bitty bites of their hamburger, pizza, or whatever advertised. Have any of you guys noticed it? It's an advertising technique that makes the food appear larger than it really is. Real people would NEVER take that small of a bite unless they're purposely wanting to make it last for an hour. lol Next time you look at a McDonald's ad for example... make sure to closely watch how big of a bite they take.

    I remember watching the chicken snack wrap commercials and a woman in it took such a small bite, that all she really bit off was a tiny piece of tortilla and some lettuce. She sure thought it was orgasmic though!

    Funny, OpenTable goes berserk on my Hero. Search by name flashes the restaurant in the pick list for a split second then goes away. Let it do that for a little while and then it will force close.

    Only on Android.

    At first I hated the Old Spice commercials with Terry Crews going ballistic but now they've grown on me in a weird way :p
