Commercials/Advertising : Most Annoying Current TV Ads

Re: Most Annoying Current TV Ads

My new most annoying commercial is the one for Healthsprings Medicare Advantage plan where the old geezer is shaking his finger at the camera. I wonder how much of their premiums went to pay for the ad?

Re: Most Annoying Current TV Ads

I'm surprised no-one has mentioned the new Arby's ads lately. You know, the one with the guy who pops out of the catchphrase singing "It's Good Mood Food~" at the end? Let's just say we shouldn't expect the guy in the ads to win any Grammy or CLIO awards anytime soon...

Re: Most Annoying Current TV Ads

Anything to do with the human body makes me heave.

Trojan vibrators kill me. The women act like immature children. "It'll blow your hair back." Why is this on TV?

Penis pumps and all the fake Viagras. Again, why are we forced to watch this?

Catheters - Gag!

Leave the prescription ads to the docs please.

I hate all insurance commercials; they are parasites.

Ediet model with the hairy belly is gross!

Ban the naked fat shots!

Ban bad singers. Better yet, shoot them! They are NOT funny.

Ban advertising the same program 52 times in one hour.

Ban advertising the program I am currently watching. I am watching it; what more do you want?!?

What doesn't work:

Repeating your commercial.

MTV VMA's with Selena Gomez.

Re: Most Annoying Current TV Ads

A recent one that comes to mind: the new Wal-Mart Halloween ad where the little girl grabs a ton of candy from a bowl with a sign that says "Take One", and when the boy in the ad scolds her, she retorts, "I can't read!" Great, so now our commercials are glorifying illiteracy now?

Speak of the devil, the commercial's playing again now just before I hit the post button...

Re: Most Annoying Current TV Ads

I have zero tolerance for the Pradaxa ad which airs incessantly and features the fat, swarthy, unphotogenic Dr. Minerva Santo-Tomas of Miami. She appears to be suffering from some of the side effects of the drug even as she speaks.

Re: Most Annoying Current TV Ads

Two new candidates:

The Chevy commercial where the salesman looks like Santa and the customer can't resist pulling his beard.

The Target commercial with the enthusiastic lady shopper who ends with "Load up the sleigh; this is gonna be a great Christmas."

I liked Mr. Whipple's TV spots for Charmin but their current campaign ("enjoy the go") along with rival Cottonelle's ("respect the roll") promotion are both annoying. Yeah, that is correct; we all go. I guess if you dis the roll you may be in danger of a violent attack.

Re: Most Annoying Current TV Ads

New most-annoying commercial: the jcp.com commercials with the women screaming about their junk mail.

Re: Most Annoying Current TV Ads

Yep, "annoying" is an understatement for the JCP commercial. Are they going to include it among the Super Bowl Sunday offerings? If so, it may go down in history as the very worst on the list of memorable greats.

Heads will roll at J.C. Penney corporate headquarters, I predict.

Re: Most Annoying Current TV Ads

That would be an answer to the prayers of the multitudes if "Heads will roll at J.C. Penney corporate headquarters."

That is such an evil way to cause pain for vieweres who cannot cover their ears fast enough.

Those hideous JCP "decision-makers" owe us all aspirins big times. They are filth.

Well, just off the top of my head, I guess people defecate among other things. Folks who patronize Taco Bell, according to Conan and Leno, might need to use a lot of extra toilet paper. Beyond that, I don't know what really happens in the bathroom. I am ignorant.

Re: Most Annoying Current TV Ads

New one: the T-Mobile commercial with the little boy trying to recite the Gettysburg Address, getting cues on his cell phone. It was cute the first time, not so much after a few weeks of two or three times a day.

Re: Most Annoying Current TV Ads

the state farm ad where the guy is talking to his insurance rep at three in the morning. he has a pervert's voice.

Can I put in a vote for the annoying Honda ad where the little boy keeps asking "what's this?"

I agree. There's others that Honda airs that are equally, if not more, annoying than the one posted.

Speaking of car ads, Nissan's current one which shows people rushing to the Nissan dealer for some sales event, dropping things (in slow motion) and making a mess in the process, is horrible. Seriously, who in the hell rushes like that to go buy a car? Sure as hell not me. Plus it seems like it's the same offers on Altimas and Rogues they have seemingly all year long.

Not to mention the cars flipping out of the ground with the announcer saying "DO. IT. NOW!!!!" is the icing on the cake.

Here's a short (16 sec) version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ZPoFkphfl8

I know what car I'm not buying anytime soon.

(If this was posted before, I apologize. It's just that it annoys me so much because it's on so much. I've seen it as many as THREE times in one break!!!)

Re: Most Annoying Current TV Ads

Yeah, that one's not as bad as the stupid new Prius ad, as if the Prius doesn't get enough deserved grief as it is.

Re: Most Annoying Current TV Ads

The Capital One commercials with Jerry Stiller. He is not even remotely funny in those commercials. He was funny on Seinfeld, but it just doesn't work here.

State Farm commercial when the guy's voices switches to the announcer's baritone voice when talking about insurance.

Me fail English? But, that's unpossible.

Re: Most Annoying Current TV Ads

The Capital One commercials capitalize on Jerry Stiller's Seinfeld character's idiosyncracies (viz. his big mouth), to good advantage, I think. (I'll have to get down to the Flatiron Building and find a car to use as a soapbox!)

What frustrates me about these commericals, however, is that they haven't come up with any more Yiddishisms to throw into the dialog for a good laugh. What's the matter, there aren't enough funny Yiddish expressions to use in more of these comericals (I think they even recycled one from an earlier commercial!)?
Gimme a break!

Re: Most Annoying Current TV Ads

there's a commercial down here in miami that WILL NOT STOP PLAYING. it's seriously annoying the piss out of me.

it involves a bunch of idiots singing the maroone dealership jingle (to the tune of "ghostbusters") while the announcer talks over them advertising whatever car they're selling.

Re: Most Annoying Current TV Ads

Mcdonalds two newest commercials are the most annoying, current, commercials to hear. I have only seen them a few times but I've heard them a lot more, and they are on all of the time.

"May I please have a strawburry banawnaw smoovy?"

and

"Let your imagining soar to a magnanimous mashup deeply ingrained in our brains pleasure centers."

Re: Most Annoying Current TV Ads

At or near the top of my list is the current Dulcolax commercial featuring the Negro woman wearing a modest one-piece pink swimsuit and grinning broadly as she floats in a pool. The reason for the big smile is apparently that she just had a comfortable bowel movement or is getting ready to take a giant dump at any moment. Remember, it doesn't make you go; it just makes it easier to go!

The prelude to the ad shows her eating popcorn in a movie theater to add fiber to her diet but she is not smiling. I guess popcorn plus Dulcolax equals a happy trip to the toilet for this African-American woman.

Re: Most Annoying Current TV Ads

This is about the Dulcolax stool softener ad.

I just noticed this. Before she is seen floating in the pool, she's in a movie theater eating popcorn to get extra fiber but is not smiliing. I guess this means that popcorn alone doesn't do the job.

I think that I may have misinterpreted the intent of the popcorn-eating intro. The undigestible and sharp-edged husks are actually causing and/or aggravating her painful bowel movements. She just likes to eat popcorn at the movies and is not trying to add fiber to her diet. With Dulcolax, she can have her popcorn cake and eat it too.

"Everybody out of the pool!"

They continue to rerun this annoying ad in prime time and I continue to switch channels. (I've had no luck finding it on YouTube yet.)

They got one thing right. It makes it easier for me to go... to my remote to try to get the image of that ear-to-ear grin and pink-clad floating torso out of my mind.

Re: Most Annoying Current TV Ads

First, I have to day that so many of the posts in this thread has me laughing like crazy.

1. The weeee, wheee, wheee, weeee Geico pig. I'd love to tie his g'damned wee-wee into a knot so she shuts the hell up.

2. The Allstate Mayhem Man. Not one of those ads are even remotely humorous. I like the guy who does the 'straight' adds much better - Dennis Haysbert. I really like him. He has a great voice, and comes across as sincere.

3. Any jerk who sings the StateFarm jingle in a half-azzed and (seemingly deliberatly) off key manner. WTH? HORRIBLE!

4. "We are Farmers - Dum dum dum dum dumb,(etc)." They're DUMB alright. As well as superbly annoying. I mean seriously, could they not have come up with ANYTHING better than that? It's practically embarrassing to listen to.

Do you notice that ALL of these ads are for insurance? That's all I'm gonna say.

5. OK, wait, one more (not insurance, though). A brown female M&M is being ogled by a human male (creepy enough right there!) b/c he thinks she naked. Then the red male M&M (boy, what a tard he is), strips off his red shell b/c he thinks she's naked too. This is bad enough on its own, but M&Ms don't even come in a light brown layer anymore, so shouldn't the femaile M&M (Christ, I feel stupid for even getting into all this, but what heve you?) have a DARK brown shell?

Re: Most Annoying Current TV Ads

I dunno, I like Dean Winters as Mayhem.

It seems to me that Alec Baldwin is the only "30 Rock" actor who can make a decent ad. The commercials with Tina Fey (for hair color), Jane Krakowski (for Trop 50 near-juice) and "Dr. Spaceman" (for Nokia) are more annoying.

Re: Most Annoying Current TV Ads

1. That short haired, middle aged woman with cancer who appears with her husband from that cancer treatment center commercial. She's talking about her family in a half-sobbing voice "They're so important. I don't know if I knew that before, but I do know."

I mean, this lady is how old, and she just now realizes her family is important? Makes me wish her cancer would go back into remission and she dies.

2. Absolutely any ad from Capella University. They make absolutely no sense. They start off with a bunch of quick shots of people doing various things, running errands and what not, and then freezes on some random shot and the woman announcer says "and then it hits you" and talks about how you should go to their college. I especially hate that one with the ugly old lady. I wouldn't want to help her.

Re: Most Annoying Current TV Ads

those PSA's from the smoking victims. I find all of them repulsive to look at. I especially hate that bed-ridden, fat old woman. I feel bad for her son, who was forced to wash her legs in the commercial.

"I'm not a doctor...I'm a funeral director" - Hiram Baker

Re: Most Annoying Current TV Ads

But isn't that the point of these commercials - to be "repulsive"? I assume they want to tie smoking in to these potential consequences so people might reassess their smoking behavior. Their "repulsiveness" (with which I agree with you) makes them among the most effective comercials of all time, in my opinion.

Re: Most Annoying Current TV Ads


I agree with the other poster about the Truvia jingle.


Yes, that lady can't sing! It is like nails on the chalkboard. UGH!

The Pull Ups commericals. Those are diapers, the kid is still pooing and peeing in the. "I'm a big kid now." "Do the potty dance."

Re: Most Annoying Current TV Ads

Prego spaghetti sauce ads, with that woman who picks Prego over Ragu, saying "Prego, but I've been buying Ragu for years. I wonder what other questionable choices I made." then she flashes back to the 70's or 80's. I have the following problems with these dumb ads.

1.) She looks the same 35 years ago as she does today, and isn't that old to begin with. Implausible.

2.) I really wouldn't call fads as mistakes. They were popular, at least for the time period.

3.) The 70's and 80's are approximately a million times better than today.

A bearded jackass with a Tintin hairdo and dark glasses smiles lovingly at his Big Mac and then jumps over to the drink station to refill his Coke just before exiting. Bouncing along, on his way out he passes a couple of dipsticks seated at a table who gaze up at him enviously. Once outside, the roving minstral strums happily on his guitar. He has found his own personal rhythm which we are apparently also privileged to hear on the soundtrack. We leave this annoying jerk lost in his fast-food induced, harmonica-playing reverie.
