    TV commericals that you are sick to death of seeing...

    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.

    Is that commerical EVER going to go away?
    For every action there is an equal and opposite criticism.

    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.

    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)."



    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. (couldn't find it for download) I stop what I'm doing every time this commercial comes on!

    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.

    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.
