I'll nominate this one:

"For good health, I like to stay in shape..." I think it's Craftmatic. I know it's an adjustable bed. I change the channel as soon as that woman starts talking. :bang:

Is that commerical EVER going to go away?

The Jessica Simpson commercial for Pizza Hut "Bites". It does indeed bite.

I'm also sick of the Miller Lite "courtroom" commercials peddling their yeasty swill as "great tasting" beer.

Texas Death Match idea: "Can you hear me know?" Guy vs. T-Mobile-Zeta-Jones (are there any losers in this one?)

The GEICO gekko needs to be stomped into a puddle (go away and bring back the cavemen)

Taco Bell commercial where the geek is jamming his tunes at the light (3 times per hour on Saturdays...enough already)

Any of the Cialis commercials. Seeing old wrinkled people with bedroom eyes sitting in a tub on the ocean being warned about erections that last more than four hours is way, way too much information.

The Pepsi brown and bubbly debacle that is seemingly their favorite commercial to air.

Man, is that awful.

When they were releasing "Nanny McPhee," I had serious fits of depression. I would hear the Police in my sleep singing, "Every Little Thing She Does is Magic," and see that witchy face.

They played this commercial here in Tampa well into its release, which is unusual. Drove me absolutely nuts, this thing.

And I'll go ahead and mention "Crumbelievable," which has turned me into a religious man just so I can pray for its demise.

One that qualifies as past history, but was shown to death for many-many years...

Customer Lady: "How do you get my clothes so clean?"
Dry Clean Guy: "Ancient Chinese Secret..."
Dry Clean Wife: "Here's his Ancient Chinese Secret (holds up laundry detergent)."

:bang:

Do any of us miss the Shakira "what in the world is she singing" Diet Pepsi commercial?

I'm going against the grain of the thread here, but I absolutely love that commericial where the guy in the office is wearing Snickers bars on his head to cover up his baldness. He is confronted by a group from the office to let him know that it's not working and that he should stop doing it. He is then shown in his car crying as "Make Your Own Kind Of Music", a Bobby Sherman hit from the 70s, plays in the background.

There's something really cute about the office girl that serves as the spokesperson for the group, and I liked the Bobby Sherman song so much that I bought his CD off ebay. :laugh: (couldn't find it for download) I stop what I'm doing every time this commercial comes on!

Dry Clean Wife: "Here's his Ancient Chinese Secret (holds up laundry detergent)."

I think I've seen a parody of this commercial where the Dry Clean Guy produces an axe and lops off his wife's head for revealing the Ancient Chinese Secret and dishonoring the family. Or maybe I dreamed it...

I also remember an incredibly annoying series of commercials for Trident gum in the mid-90's. The announcer would sing/scream, "Who wants Trident?" and random folks would yell back, "I DO! I DO!" I wanted a Mer-man to pop out of the water and reward those folks by chucking real tridents into their chests.

Any commercial for razors or hygiene products

For me it's the Bud Lite Daredevil!

And speaking of the Ciallis commercial, what's with the bathtubs anyway? I'm sure all of us are just dying to setup his and her bathtubs overlooking the river...

Yeah, I think Jessica is a real babe but that commercial makes me uncomfortable. Although I haven't seen that version lately. I've been seeing the otherone where she's singing but she's not on.

Those are actually kinda funny but Miller Lite bashing Bud Light, et. al. for not being tasty is just wrong. It's like Pam Anderson criticizing someone for having a boob job.

The one commercial that just confuses the hell out of me are the Bridgestone tire commercials, which just features very attractive people grinding on one another while a tire spins around in the middle.

I watch, and I'm puzzled as to how that makes me want to buy a tire.

My favorite commercial currently airing is the Nike commercial with the high school/playground kids doing all of the "classic" Jordan moves, ending with the kid doing the push off, draining the J, and then taunting the defender back up the court while Mike looks on. Just a really well-shot and well done piece, IMO.

The Bud Light daredevil commercials are great. Esp. the "I'm staying 2 minutes past 5...ON A FRIDAY."

Good stuff.

The asthma commercial featuring Jerome Bettis is terrible. Anyone seen that one? Talk about being overly mushy.

I agree with you Reg, I like the Bud Light, I also like the Miller light one too.

When football was on, my least favorite was that stupid Pepsi machine commercial.

Dom, I'm with you on the Jerome Bettis ones too. Actually just about any drug commercial. I think I would rather live with having the toe fungus with Don Rickles voice talking to me than to watch anymore of those cheesy commercials.

I've got a new one now. Arby's is advertising that they now have all-natural chicken.

"Now"? Good Lord! What were we eating before?!?

Ohman- just thought of one- the commercials for the movie "Jarhead," when Jamie Foxx says, "Boo-rah" or whatever it is.

I hate it when movies try and be too cool for school.

That commercial for Disney World is starting to get annoying. The one where the kids are up late, excited about the vacation, and the mom tells them to go to bed. The kid says (in the most annoying, nasally voice ever) "We're too excited to sleep!"

It's on every channel I like, just about every break. I'll help you sleep you little brat. *Whack*

I'm sick of almost all commercials, but there is a set that i stop to watch every time they're on. It's those Volkswagen 'Unpimp Your Ride' commercials. V-dub in the ha-a-oouuse! I laughed so hard I almost cried when he says, "Oh Schnap!" :laugh:

I'm am sick of the "Kidz Bop" commercials. Nevermind the obvious mispelling of "Kids" to try and be "cool." The whole notion of kids singing the popular hits of the day bugs me. Don't get me wrong. Children's choirs can be excellent. These kids just bug me. I must say, I am waiting to see if the next version contains a cover of "Shake That" by Eminem annd Nate Dogg.

Saw another last night that I CANNOT STAND:

"Sorry sir, your credit card has been denied."

Credit Guard, I think?

OMG....has to be the worst commercial ever.

What's with the people who are engaged in other conversations suddenly turning to the camera to say things that piggyback on stuff said by people who were not even talking to them? Weird.

The Capital One commercial where the family is on vacation. It's summer time, and they are going skiing. If your credit card company forces you to take a family vacation in the summer, why would you be so mentally incompetent to choose skiing? Why not go to the beach?
