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!

Yeah, they should cut the number of athletes in half and put the other into actual production costs.  Might even out a little.

The thing that I hate most about that particular credit report commercial is the idiot face he makes at the end. That smirk and head-bob makes me want to go on a smashing rampage of Godzilla proportions.

Anything with John Madden as the spokesman.  I've hated Tinactin and Ace Hardware commercials with him in them since I was little.

Ah, but the Mad TV John Madden commercials are damn funny.

I hate the new Burger King commercials.  The ones for that steakhouse burger?  God, those are irritating.  Especially the fact that they keep using the word "arrogant" over and over in them.  I want to get the person that wrote those commercials a thesaurus, make them look up synonyms for arrogant, and then hit them repeatedly over the head with it.  Also, I have to question the wisdom of using such a harsh word in a commercial for a product in the first place.  Is "arrogant" really a word that Burger King wants in any way associated with their food?  It would only be slightly less effective than using the slogan "EAT AT BURGER KING, YOU WORTHLESS MORONS!!!"

The newest Listerine commercials, with the people's ugly mugs filling the screen and sloshing imaginary Listerine through their mouths. Something is said, like "how do YOU do Listerine?" And the people show off just how they slosh the stuff in their own personal way, as if that means anything to anyone but the Listerine Marketing Department. They finish up with their big mouths open going "ahh!!"

Get your UGLY FACE out of mine!!  :angry:  And shut that GAPING MAW!! I'm not a dentist!!  :grr:

UPDATE:

Oh.
My.
God.

Listerine is now allowing users to upload videos of how they rinse.

What a shocking waste of bandwidth. Funny how there's only one video so far.   ::)

Can't find a video, but the JC Penney Breakfast Club ad with the New Found Glory cover of "Don't You Forget About Me" makes me stabby.  The girl in the pink Nirvana shirt just seals it.

Oh yeah, they showed that in the theatre just before The Dark Knight.

Me and a bloke along the row came to the same observation around the same time "In the Breakfast Club, they do all this stuff after indulging in some naughty illegality"

At the end of the ad I called out, "J C Penny, now selling clothes made from pure Hemp!"
