Are any of them on YouTube? Sharing the pain eases the suffering... or at least spreads it around a little bit.

You know the guy from Cube who got sprayed in the face with acid? It had a similar effect...

IT BUUUUUUUUUURRRNNNSSS!!!  :gouge: :gouge: :gouge:

Although, technically, I guess it would be more like the guy from Cube Zero who got dumped in the hypersonic trap. I think my eardrums burst... :P

I dunno, I think it's kinda funny.  Though I could see how it could get annoying if they played it during every single commercial break, as networks are wont to do with annoying commercials.

Meh, annoying song ads don't seem to bother me anymore, I just tune them out.  it's the horribly acted trying to be funny and failing ads that get to me, like the Hidey Honda ads I used to see back in Dayton (not sure of the spelling and can't find any on YT) or the Rocky's Auto ads we get here in the Denver area featuring "Shagman" "Fake Cop" and "is she supposed to the their 'hot chick'?  whatever"

Oh they do and certain shows on abc1 have taken to been sponsored by them as well exponentially increasing the annoyance factor

just about every boost mobile ad in existance but especially the one with the shrill annoying "health nut" on the phone bitching about her latte.
those yoplait ads with the two ugly chicks talking about how sour chocolate yogurt is zen wrapped in karma wrapped in chocolate good.
i'm thiiiiiiiiinking of a number, or those new freecreditreport.com commercials without the effeminate guy exploding in his pants about having a super high credit score.
any enzyte ad ever.
and girls gone wild is just a given. the commercials have made me hate the sound of steel drums for life.

I hate any radio adds that employ the same "Wacky FM dj" that you here between songs trying to play a character.  "Say Sharon my computer seems to be running slow today."  Sharon "It's funny you should mention that ..."

And on the topic of radio commercials the On-Star radio adds are awful.  Instead of instilling a confidence in their product, they are pretty much telling me that everyone who has On-star is a complete idiot or a whiny little bitch.

It takes a lot to make boobs annoying, but those commercials certainly do the trick.
