  I do like really, really bad and low quality local commericals, though. They're so awesome.

I despise the damned annoying vitamin water commercials the ones that have comments like "try waking up in bed with your boss, try it"

yeah, well here is my message to you vitamin water "try eating a fistful of your own feces, try it"

As a man, I am deeply, profoundly offended by Hardee's (or Carl's Jr., depending on what part of the country you're in) commercials.  It's one thing when Dave Barry pokes good-natured fun at how idiotic guys can be sometimes.  But the Hardee's commercials are just flat-out insulting!  They basically make it seem like guys are just dumb, lazy scumbags who lack even the basic motor skills needed to open one of those twisty ties on a bread bag.

Taco Bell commercials annoy me to no end, as well.  I've laughed more at episodes of Will & Grace than I have at Taco Bell commercials.  (And Will & Grace has maybe elicited a single chuckle from me during the entire time it was on.)

I also hate those commecials you see on G4 and Spike TV for schools that supposedly teach you how to make video games.  They're always like "Hey, how would YOU like to play video games... and get PAID for it?"  Whoever makes those commercials obviously knows nothing about how video games are made, or what playing a video game consists of, or how actual human beings interact with each other.

And when are commercial writers going to learn that no real human being uses the full product name in normal conversation?

Those are priceless. They don't mention the hours upon hours of being hunched over writing code or searching in vain for the cause of that bug that makes the game freeze.

Beginning 1993 the Chigaoland area was infested by this commercial and things have never been the same since

[yt=425,350]_-vjD3ih2dk[/yt]






then there was a sequel, starring Chicago radio personality Mancow

[yt=425,350]ZPzV0YgqtRY[/yt]





and to bring the Eagle Man trilogy to a close was perhaps most unwatchable commercial ever

[yt=425,350]OyJXxnJKWkE[/yt]


The original one left me with my jaw dropped the first time I saw it. It became a local icon. The second one was more funny on purpose. Mancow was hot at the time, I really liked him in the mid 90s, but later he became a tasteless, self-righteous maniac. And the third one, well that just killed it. For all I know it killed Eagle Insurance as well.
I really do like pie.

You know that any business that creates a commercial that features a guy in a bird costume looking like he's about to take a dump has to be desperate.

Ha, I'd have to agree about the Spanish one being far better... It's interesting that they figured out in the middle one that it's female eagles that lay eggs. I must say it puts an even stranger twist on the commercials when eagle man went from being an egg-laying man to a woman, back to an egg laying man again.

Which raises the question... if a male eagle lays eggs on the roof of a barn, which side do they roll down?

Personally I hat all the Anti-Drug and Anti-smoking commercials. Especially those ones that look like a 4 year old drew and animated them. Ugh. I don't care if someone smokes, I personally don't. If someone wants to smoke that is their choice. The anit-drug ones simply need better commercials.

Also hate Subway and Taco Bell commercials. Taco Bell needs the Chihuahua again.. Hardee's are also god awful (as was the food last time I ate there). Makes men look like pigs.. or idiots. Cheese paper? Ugh.

I too laugh at the "Make video games!!" commercials. About as realistic as the movie Hackers.

"Can you believe we get paid to do this?"

What, pretend you design video games for a living, you unconvincing 5th string actors?
