    The JG Wentworth commercials that have the people opening up the window and screaming, "It's my money and I want it now!!!!!' over and over again.

    Terrible.

    Any ad featuring Bill Cunningham. I just turn them off and if I do here them, I make a mental note not to do business with anyone who would use him as a spokesperson.

    I know this will sound cruel to some, but when the animal control commercial with Sarah McLaughlin comes on, I immediately have to change the channel.

    That video is too painful to watch.

    Car radio ads that begin (or end) with the disclaimer details that cram 30 seconds worth of text into 6 seconds. Cannot STAND those things.

    My wife wants one for me
    ...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.

    I wish the "Mr. Opportunity" Toyota commercials would stop.

    And yes the Alamo commercials during Reds games are the most obnoxious, ridiculous things ever.

    I really don't watch much TV anymore, other than a ball game, so thank goodness my exposure is quite limited.

    Those are for Honda, not Toyota. Unfortunately I've heard the commercial enough through the Olympics to know this for certain. (I also posted about my hatred for those commercials earlier in this thread.)

    Gotta agree with the Viva Viagra commercials too. SO ANNOYING.

    I have reached my point of saturation with the political ads.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    The most recent "Just for Men" commercials are awesome.

    Thank God I haven't had to hear those since I moved to NY. (not that they don't have their own annoying ads.)

    Those annoying male enhancement ads that dance around and refuse to say penis.
