I cannot stand these stupid shit commercials they keep playing OVER and OVER and OVER every 10 minutes!!!!! It isn't like I can just turn the channel, because they are on ALL OF THE DAMNED CHANNELS!!!!!!! First is that OLD NAVY commercial. The music is annoying and no amount of t&a will get me change my mind. Then there is that crap UAW and Ford commercial. I don't give a crap about the anti-gun commie and mob run UAW. I am NEVER going to buy a Ford just because of this. "Change the world" my ass. The winner of the steaming pile of soft stool and most aggravating award is the Mitsubishi Montero commercial. The music is the equivalent of fingernails being scratched across a blackboard. I am avoiding all Mitsubishi products for as long as I live due to their assault upon my sanity.

I think I've seen that Mercedes Coupe commercial about four hundred times in the last week. Damn song wont get out of my head.

Don't see 'em here

No, but here in Western Washington we have those God-awful Vern Fonk commercials.

The one that makes me want to puke the most as of late is the new Infinity Q45 commercial where the yuppie walks out of his office and stops the rain and traffic on demand. That could only appeal to someone who feels he is the center of the universe. Talk about delusions of grandeur... Everytime I see it I say "Mute, on" and click the sound off.

Have you seen the friggin taco bell commercial where the DA runs from his office with a bunch of people singing a god-awful song. Or how about the infomercials on at this time of night.

Thank God for satellite and cable TV. At least the History Channel doesn't pimp themselves to the infomercial bastards at night.

Vern Fonk! Nyuk nyuk, that brings back xome memories. I think I saw his office by the University of Washington in Seattle. Looked pretty crusty. "My momma told me, life is life a fresh crate of AR's."

Here in Alaska we have those damned Cal Worthington Ford commercials with his "dog" Spot. He was the guy run out of most states for one reason or the other. In 20-25 years he still hasn't lost that damned Texan accent. I will never step into a Worthington Ford showroom as long as I have breath in my body. Do these commercials really drag costomers through the doors?

The Empire carpet commercial damn near makes me go postal. The same guy has been doing the ads for almost 30 years. Just the sound of his voice sets me off. I sincerely hope he dies a gruesomely painful death. And I hate logos on the screen with a passion that burns more brightly with each passing year. I could expound at length, but fear the loss of control.

I don't suppose anyone here actually remembers "Tom Peterson"... "Knock knock knock" (On the TV screen during late night) "Wake up!! Wake up!!!" I wanted to shoot that man. Evidently he got his Karmic justice from his wife... er.. ex wife who took it all. Including his store! Now if only that "Old Navy" hag would fall in the tub....

imbrolgio--when i first read the title to your topic (prior to opening it) my mind though of the old navy commercial as well. just sort of made me chuckle to think someone else hates that thing to. another one i can't stand is that commercial for levis jeans, where the girls belly buttons are singing to the song "i'm coming out". that one just irritates me for some odd reason. sloth

Ditto on this. What a self centered SOB this would appeal to. When it comes on, I pick up my remote and say 'remote, change stations'. I do like the music and some of the scenery in the Eclipse commercial.

Anybody watch South Park last night? Seems every other commercial was for Prime Time Glick, I am really, _really_ starting to go nuts from that ad...

The jap car commercials with the annoying techno-fag-pop music don't bother me as much...because it's fitting to the tree-hugger looking people in them. but what really annoys even offends me is the jap car or korean car commercials with Jimi Hendrix Or Stevie Ray Vaughn. it's completely wrong. Also any levis commercials, ever since I heard they were gun grabbers I've been just noticing how friggin gay their commercials are, everyone is meth-addict skinny with higlighted hair (even the guys) and wear those stupid "gay glasses" you know not corrective glasses not sunglasses not shooting glasses just these glases with blue yellow or red lenses.

It would be easier for me to list the commercials that don't annoy me, but the ones that really get on my nerves are those dumbass Pepsi Cola ads with that friggin' girl, ANYTHING with Dennis Miller or Whoopi Goldberg, Detrol, Sherwin-Williams, and Viagra (they make limp dick look really fun). As for the anti-UAW/Ford comment at the top, if you're going to avoid UAW produced automobiles, better think in investing in a Schwinn if that bothers you. GM, Ford, Chrysler, and the U.S. assembled Jap cars are all UAW shops. Sveral years back, "Mad" magazine had an issue where they had a satire of TV Guide and commercials. They had a TV guide that had listings of all the commercials and lengths of commercial breaks. If only it were true.

Let's turn this around: I can think of three commercials that I could never get enough of: Two of them from Nissan: The flock of pigeons attempting an air strike against a newly washed Nissan, all to the tune of Topgun's "Danger Zone" song. The Nissan 300 ZX twin turbo that outruns everything; including a jet fighter. The safety Nazi's went ballistic at that one, and Nissan dropped their pants, and promised to play it only during the NFL championship game a few years ago. My favorite is the Nike / Lance Armstrong commercial where during the narration, Armstrong brings up how a lot of people (mostly European, and most of them are french) think that a man nearly dead from cancer could only win the Tour de France 3 years in a row by "doping". Armstrong says during the narration: "People are always asking me "What are you on"?: "What Am I On ???? "I'm on my bike 6 hours a day, busting my ass: "What are you on"??? Jay Arizona "Life is hard: It's harder if your stupid"

A lot of the satellite channels have been showing a commercial for something called Enerex. I have seen that thing about 1000 times. Thith ith my back.

Personally, I like the Old Navy T&A ads. They're selling clothes? I didn't notice. I liked the AFLACK ad with the duck...LMAO! I also like the Make 7...Up Yours! ads.

I try not to watch anything that has commercials. Usually wind-up channel surfing 80 stations.

He had a dealership in So.Cal. years ago until he was ran out of town for fraud. Remember his jingle "Go see Cal... Go see Cal..."? I always thought he sang "Pussy Cow... Pussy Cow..." Excuse me while I bang my head against a wall to get that tune out of my head.

Cal Worthington is still alive!? He was bugging the s@#t out of me when I was going to college in AZ during the late '70s. Lets hope the good folks in Alaska catch him coming out of his dealership late some night and run him through a wood chipper! [chainsawkill]

How many more times do I need to see another Ms. Cleo commercial. "Call me now!!" I can't recall his name at the moment, but that excercise/bodybuilder guru in those informercials with the long-ass pony-tail he had since the 80s. This guy, since I first saw him years ago, acts like he's on speed mixed with a touch of caffeine. Japanese car commercials with American pop culture music to attract gullible and liberal 20-somethings.
