It's not a commercial technically, but I hate the video about blu-ray that loops over and over at Target every time I go in there.  It says the switch from DVD to Blu-Ray is like the switch from VHS to DVD.  That's not really a valid comparison.  DVD and Blu-Ray aren't two completely different and incompatible technologies.

I also hate that. But not as much as the shit that plays (or used to anyway) in Wal-Mart. Paula Deen. Shudder.

I definitely prefer they just show a movie. A stupid commercial isn't going to make me want to buy, it's gonna make me want to destroy!!

I have to imagine these commercials have been touched on at some point in the last 58 pages of this thread... but to hell if I'm going to bother to find out...

Anyways, I absolutely hated these commercials when they were running back in the early 90s... Although now I do sorta appreciate the "hey, I'm a douche, fucking deal with it" vibe that they pressed forward with unabashedly.... That takes real balls... something advertising is not generally known for.

I don't understand those.  How do they edit the pages?  Why is that web site so thick?

I remember those from when I was a kid!

I used to have a tape with some Star Trek episodes on it and that was one of the adds that was on it again and again.

I remember even as a kid thinking "I wouldn't buy anything from this guy".

Weird add let me tell you.

It mutates you and the only way to counter act the mutation for a while is to eat more.... that or it is some sick representation on puberty and CB reverses it...

In my area, the Flint, Mi area, we have dealerships called RPM and they have this song that just says over and over again, "RPM! Auto Sales! RPM Au-to- Sales." 
About 13 years ago, another dealership, Patsy Lou (wife of the recently resigned mayor), happened to get Burt Reynolds in town for a dealership ad referencing Smokey and the Bandit.  They ad was on for over a year and on almost all the time. 
Vince Offer the Shamwow/Quick Chop/Attacked by a hooker guy, is so annoying and seems like a prick, but one of his lines, does make me laugh on that Quick Chop commercial, because it's so cheesy.   
There is also the recent vibrating Trojan product, with the two younger women whispering about it and then the older woman rolling her eyes, leaning over,  and finally telling them a little more information.  That just makes me cringe. 
The whole roll over minutes mom from AT&T is starting to bug me too. 

If I think of any more, I'll post them.
