    - "Can you hear me now" mobile ads really piss me off



    I hate those too...... if I could hear you the first two years you were out, and with the pace of technology on cell phones suddenly advancing rapidly, I THINK I COULD HEAR YOU BETTER THAN EVER BY NOW. There's also billboards ugh.

    The sketchy/scribbly PSP commercials are probably the amongst the worst advertisements ever. The squirrels, the dust bunnies, it all sucks.

    And I also hate commercials advertising cell phone ringtones, wallpapers, and jokes. The joke commercial with the CGI "humans" laughing and bobbing their head as if the jokes are the funniest thing in the world is both incredibly ugly and frightening!

    There's this commercial on CNN about some non-prescription drug called Head-On. The thing about this commercial is that two people talk about it offscreen but never actually describe what it is and what it's used for. It's very irritating to not know what the hell it is and trying to search for it on Google has turned up nothing.

    all the prescription drug commercials are annoying, tiring, and stupid. If I want to know about a drg, I'll ask my doctor or my pharmastist. I don't need a commercial to tell me to do so.

    There's a minivan commercial up here where this repulsive mom (well, I find her repulsive) is talking to her kids, inside said minivan, like she's a flight attendant (She uses airplane terms like "cabin", and she mentions how there's crayons and colouring books, and also cartoon DVD's for the kids. Then, at the end of her speech, she adds in some "cute-sounding", "and behave yourselves".). It's the worst. She sounds so uppity and smarmy. And the dad, all he says after she's done is, "...riiiiiiiight". He doesn't even tell her to shut the fuck up.

    I hate the commercials for Checkers fast food restaurant.."You gotta eat!"..Anyone else get these damn things?...Before I had cable I would see this damn commercial about 20 times a day on my local Fox station

    It made me feel like Elvis Presley..I just wanted to shoot the TV set


    I remember these, but in Birmingham, Checkers is called Rally's.

    And of course the stupid Geico commericials. Here's the next one: Man is in a hospital with his dying father. Doctor comes in and says "Sir, I'm afraid your heart has gotten worse and you will die soon". The man is sad. There is a short pause. Then the man goes "Well at least I just saved 15% on my car insurance by switching to Geico."
    Enough already!!

    I agree that these are a bunch of crap. John Cena once said "I just saved 15% on my car insurance by switching to Geico" while cutting a promo.

    I know! That was so funny when Cena did that.

    I'm sick of those stupid poker website ones. Like playing Poker online gets you a bunch of good looking people flocking to you.

    I hate all comercials --partially because of the fact that they're in your face weather u like it or not and u cant do anything to keep but seeing a glimpse (or fifty hours) of them a day.

    Some of the more obnoxious offenders, as mentioned above are ineed ringtone adds

    Now I havnt lived in the states in 2 years, but here in Germany MTV ONLY has like 6 commercials. So you guessed it. They play the same ring tone adds back to back for entire commercial breaks.

    WHY. ON. EARTH. Would I want to pay to download these obnoxious sound bytes and songs when I've heard them fifty times consecutivly on your add?

    My husband was listening to one once and he was like, hah thats cute. I glared at him and said "just wait..."
    30 mins later-- seeing that same comercial back to back-- He was yelling at the TV

    I have mentioned it before and I will mention them again. ENZITE commercials and the VW commercials with that scary looking scientist guy. Both of those guys are JUST PLAIN SCARY. The enzite guy with that stupid smile, THAT IS NOT NATURAL. I dont care what problems you had that smile is very very scary. then the same reason for the VW guy, with the "Time to unpimp the auto" has the look on his face like he is about to blow up, or set fire to something.

    Like I said, there's something very disturbing about the Charmin commercials with the bears wiping their asses! And I sure do miss Mr. Whipple.
