Re: Most Annoying Current TV Ads

I haven't seen it for a bit, but one of the most annoying commercials was the Peter Pan Geico Commercial. That punk yelling "Phiiiiiillll"as he flew onscreen made me want to kick him right back off camera.

Here it is for your viewing enjoyment or annoyment!

Mickey Rooney was a pioneer in the smart-alecky kid department. That child actor may also have a future in show business. Because he was intended to be annoying rather than simply appearing in an irritating commercial, I give this young carrottop two thumbs up.

Damn you, yohnny! I refuse to click that link! Hahaha!

Thomas Barbusca -He's already well-known in the business.

He seemed familiar and has a long list of credits for a kid. Talented!

Re: Most Annoying Current TV Ads

The most annoying to me are the ads that make false or deceptive claims for products. Examples:

Ads for memory/congnition improvement supplements
Ads for "neutraceutical" food products

Also annoying: ads for cosmetics, which almost all seem to promote unrealistic and sexist views of what a beautiful woman looks like.

That State Farm one where the guy comes "I'm never getting married" seriously every time it comes on I'm like quick where's the remote so I can turn. Also and I don't see this one but the one for Activia, I think Jamie Lee Curtis is in it and some woman is with her and some other women talking about how she's irregular, I mean yeah like that's what you talk about with your friends!

Hands-down, the Sonic restaurants 'Two Idiots In A Car' ads. They're the reason I hardly ever go to Sonic, anymore.

Yeah, that non-dynamic duo is pretty irritating to have to listen to.

Re: Most Annoying Current TV Ads

those two twits irritate the crap out of me--- mostly because they PLAY THE COMMERCIALS NONSTOP IN NYC AND THE NEAREST SONIC IS IN JERSEY!

Oh God. Fortune vomits on my eiderdown once more.

Re: Most Annoying Current TV Ads

Fruit Shoot ads - cute the first few times but played too often. What's in that stuff, caffeine?

Re: Most Annoying Current TV Ads

Still annoyed by the Toyota "Drive Fresh"--er, I mean "Let's Go Places" jingle.

But now also annoyed by the song in the Xeljanz medication commercial, too. The refrain in the song seems to copy off the hook to the theme from 'My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic', where whenever the Xeljanz ad plays on TV I also mentally hear "My Lit-tle Po-ny-yyy, My Lit-tle Po-ny-yyy, My Lit-tle Po-ny-yyy, etc" going along to the music in the ad...

This commercial is SO DEPRESSING...

Re: Most Annoying Current TV Ads

The Chevrolet commercials with 'real people, not actors'. They are repeated too often.

Nissan commercial with tarpaulin

The Nissan commercial where a blue tarpaulin blows off a truck and lands on a white car, covering the windshield. White car stops. Red Nissan behind white car stops safely then steers around white car and goes on down the road.

Nissan driver should help the guy with the tarpaulin obscuring his windshield before driving off.

Edited: car is white, tarp is blue.

Re: Nissan commercial with tarpaulin

THIS crap... https://www.ispot.tv/ad/ACwJ/2017-kia-forte-talent-show

BEYOND irritating!!!

Re: Nissan commercial with tarpaulin

Nissan driver should help the guy with the tarpaulin obscuring his windshield before driving off.

He's trying to catch the truck to let that driver know he lost the tarp.


How about the Hyundai ads where they have their car and an competing car side by side in some sort of test chamber, both have a person behind the wheel looking content. Then they start up a machine to demolish the competing car and the person in it has to flee if they want to live. What exactly is the message in this one? We're going to be going around destroying competing cars and if you don't get one of ours your life will be in danger?

Re: Nissan commercial with tarpaulin

Haven't seen the Hyundai ad but I'll be on the lookout for it.

The big question is why the guy would dive into another car that's lined up for the shredder, no matter what model it was.

Re: Most Annoying Current TV Ads

Danny Glover's Pseudobulbar Affect (PBA) commercial is pretty damned irritating.

I will probably be much less annoyed by a Tourette Syndrome commercial if there ever is one on TV.


Tourette Syndrome Symptoms and Behavior

Motor Tics

Motor tics are movements. Simple motor tics include but are not limited to: eye blinking, facial grimacing, jaw movements, head bobbing/jerking, shoulder shrugging, neck stretching, and arm jerking. Complex motor tics involve multiple muscle groups or combinations of movements and tend to be slower and more purposeful in appearance,(e.g., hopping, twirling, jumping).


Vocal/Phonic Tics

Vocal (phonic) tics produce a sound. Simple vocal tics include but are not limited to sniffing, throat clearing, grunting, hooting, and shouting. Complex vocal tics are words or phrases that may or may not be recognizable but that consistently occur out of context. In 10-15% of cases, the words may be inappropriate (i.e., swear words, ethnic slurs, or other socially unacceptable words or phrases). This type of vocal tic, called coprolalia, is often portrayed or mocked in the media as a common symptom of TS.

"Oh.... they're DRAINERS" says the lady with disdain at the couple not eating Dole fruit bowls packed in juice.

You can just tell she lives in a McMansion gated community and has a lifetime membership to a posh country club.

That's what we need - ridiculous odds, and just a speck of hope that someday, we'll beat it

It's a sick joke or gallows humor or dark comedy. We're all going to die so why not be sarcastic about it? Yeah, I can see how that could be aggravating in view of actual tornadoes, hurricanes, floods, fires and earthquakes which are never funny.

While not a fan of the annoying little green CGI gecko, this particular ad doesn't bother me.

Re: Most Annoying Current TV Ads

I dunno, I guess it's cause I'm more proactive in a sense. The reason it bugs me is cause I'm left thinking, "The hell good is that gonna do if the meteor obliterates the bloody Earth?!"

Re: Most Annoying Current TV Ads

Dumb as crap, that ad is.

Re: Most Annoying Current TV Ads

There's one that currently annoys me, I believe it's for Ford and they have this ultra-perky woman called the Matchmaker. She helps the guy find the truck he's looking for and then marches away in the most annoying way possible! I cringe when it comes on!
