The infinity commercial where buddy in the suit walks up to a haystack and pulls out a needle "sometimes, it's just that easy" and then Puts the needle in HIS POCKET!!! What the fork, who puts a needle in their pocket?

What commercials drive you mad? Be it for their inaccuracy, unbeleivablity or what have you? Maybe they are just plain stupid or maybe you don't know exactly why but something about them make you batty.

Aaaaand go

The stupid forking commercial for the Nissan Leaf where the sad polar bear hugs a Leaf owner. Such bullshiitake, because that electric car takes electricity which in this country is quite likely to be coal, which is harmful to the environment as well. And if people honostly cared, they'd be doing more than just buying this car, like ditch the car and the suburbs and live close to where you work. My sister said this commercial brought tears to her eyes, for me, it made my blood boil. It's letting people off the hook too easily.

/End rant.

There's a terrible ad here for a local gym. It starts out with this blonde girl who works there introducing the place, then there's a voiceover and it shows scenes of people doing different exercises. And the blonde girl from the start is in the back of every scene, with her head down pretending to inconspicuously work out on a bike or do some kind of class.

If you don't have enough members at your gym to get ten of them to ride exercise bikes and you have to make your staff do it instead, your facility probably isn't good enough to interest me.

(I love that one too.)

The car commercial that uses "If I Should Fall From Grace with God" by the Pogues confuses me terribly. I think there was one with "Sunny Side of the Street" once too, which is even weirder.

me too! i get so excited when it comes on.

lately i'm infuriated by commercials for love and other drugs, because that forking song gets into my head and stays there for days and days, which is made so much worse than it ought to be by the fact that i know only the two or so lines of the song that get played in the commercial. i also really hate the voiceover at the end that says, "fall in love and other drugs," because it doesn't make any sense. not that i wouldn't love to fall into some drugs every once in a while.

i have a love/hate relationship with this commercial:

I hate that the ad ends with "Fall in Love and Other Drugs" too! But what makes it worse is that that line is from a review! Some journalist actually wrote that shiitake. Yikes.

(I also hate how corny they make the movie seem. I saw it last week and it's so good! Much deeper/more than just a romcom, not a com at all actually.)

1) I don't care for the little pig Geico commercial, but I do like the concept, and often enjoy people's impressions of it.
2) I'm glad to hear Love.... is more than it's advertised to be. I like Anne Hathaway, and sort of hoped she was better than that.
3) This commercial has been driving me insane, if only because no one can find the song they use.

There is this commercial here, maybe it's a Canada-wide one, I'm not sure... But it's for the lottery, and it aired last year at Christmas too. Family is gathered around piano. Cat begins to play We Wish You a Merry Christmas. Cat stops. Everyone looks sad. Cat pulls out lottery ticket. Woman yells "WHISKERS SAVED CHRISTMAS!"

What. The. fork.

Pretty much any commercial that uses one of my favorite songs especially the Cruise commercial with Iggy Pop and the Lincoln commercial with under the milky way! I'm not old enough to be the targeted demographic for either of those!

The commercials with the woman in the red track suit training for the target black friday sale.

The commercial with Martha Steward carrying a rooster into a sleeping couple's room to wake them up for the macy's sale. Especially how she keeps waving it at them.

I also hate every commercial for a drug ever.

My most hated are these local car commercials with car lot owner Billy Fusillo. I literally freak out whenever they come on TV or radio. I grab the remote and turn off the tv or change the channel or mute it.. whatever I can get to first.

I didn't actually watch this with sound on... but it was the only one I could find on youtube. I warn you, you probably don't want to click this. If this man owned the last car dealership on earth I'd walk.



I love Maxwell crying Wee Wee Wee.

The one where the bacteria lifts up the big toe-nail to demonstrate how a nail gets infected. That is forking nasty. You don't lift up nails. Shivers, man, shivers.

Also, "Komt wel goed, schatje" makes my ears bleed. But that's Dutch and I can't explain it, so I'll just sit here, alone in my profound discomfort.

Also, watching American channels make me laugh. So many commercials for lawyers! "I WILL get you compensation for your injuries. Call ME today!"

I HATE Grey Power commercials too. The "bad" drivers in the commercials are so over-the-top and I hate the tagline - "you've EARNED the right to save." Buying into this attitude that some older people have that they've somehow earned the world kissing their asparagus. uggghh.

But the squealing gets to me after 2.5 seconds. He's cute, though.

I don't think it comes on tv anymore, but I'll never forget the hatred I felt for the United Furniture Warehouse ads. The worst was when they had a bunch of kids come on and at the end one of them pops up and says 'You forgot the bomp bomp!'. Makes me all kinds of crazy.
