There's a radio ad that just annoys me and I know it shouldn't. It's for Visa business, a bunch of people are talking saying "the world calls us small business owners" "but really there's nothing small about us"

Well yes tools, the "small" there is a descriptive of the businesses you own, not your importance or stature. I hope all your fictitious businesses all fold due to your inability to understand simple English.

How can you hate Shatner?

That's like hating Adam West or Roger Moore.

I hate everything about this video:
the black guy steals the dollar from the guy's couch
the blonde girl is air-headed and laughs at something that's not even funny. in fact, her whole attitude throughout the commercial sucks.
"life tastes better with KFC!" (more like "how to harden your arteries!")
the fact that it's KFC to begin with
my entry made my girlfriend laugh a few times, the best I can hope for really.

I'd say Whalberg definately qualifies as really good.

I really dislike those Volkswagen "Safe Happens" commercials. What idiot thought this would be a good method to sell a car? "Let's take our product and put it in a mundane, everyday situation, and then scare the crap out of our potential buyers by putting it in a horrible car accident!" Sure the people survived cause the car is so safe or whatever, but I personally don't want to visualize awful situations like that. Showing a car crashing is scary, and it certainly doesn't make me want to buy it...

But the kind of commercials I hate the most are townie commercials. Y'know, the ones that only play in your area and are made by crappy local businesses. They get their friends who can't act to do some stupid song or say lines in the dumbest way imaginable. It just makes me say, wow, if you can't afford a decent camera and actors for your commercial, your product is likely crap and I will never, ever buy anything from you. This car dealership is what I see every day in Maryland, and I want to punch the TV when I see them!

Ugh.

Well, if that's the kind of commercial you have to deal with on a daily basis where you live, I can understand you disliking local commercials.  I myself sometimes find local commercials can have a certain charm to them.  At least local commercials are usually fairly straightforward and easy to understand.  And sometimes, if they're done right, they can actually be quite clever.  There's a series of commercials in my area that I wish I could find on youtube featuring "The Continuing Saga Of Darryl & Darlene".  Basically it's about this oblivious redneck and his smart, disaster-prone wife.  Basically the plot of each commercial is Darlene notices something wrong with their house, such as the plumbing, mentions it to Darryl and suggests they look for alternate housing, Darryl either tries unsuccessfully to fix, downplays the seriousness of, or outright denies the existance of the problem, and disaster befalls poor Darlene.  Then the announcer talks about the mobile home dealer who these commercials are for  This, without exaggeration, is probably what a script for a Darryl & Darlene ad looks like.

ANNOUNCER:  (Over title card) And now the Continuing Saga of Darryl & Darlene!
DARLENE:  Darryl, the plumbing is broken.  We need a new house.
DARRYL:  Don't worry, woman.  It'll cost less if I fix it.  (Hits pipe with sledgehammer.  Pipe comes off, and Darlene is splashed with water, getting her
                   all wet.)
DARLENE:  Dar-ryl!!!

Yes it's cheesy, but intentionally so.  And that's what makes it so brilliant.
