Yeah, those roll over minute commercials suck.

My least favorite commercial is still the Subway 5 dollar footlong ad... go away already!

The local Subway charges 6 for a foot long.  They should get rid of that ad just for false advertisement.  Yeah, that one is getting annoying too but unfortunately that song is stuck my head..

There's a "Pawn Your Ride" place here in northern Georgia that uses this guy named Cledus T. Judd as a spokesman....

He a hick "comedian" who makes Larry The Cable Guy look like Victor Borge.  Backward hat, strange looking glasses in shirt tails and boxer shorts covered with dollar signs standing in front of a green screen with these bad drawings of cars, motorcycles and things coming and going behind him. And he's yelling and whistling and just being annoying as hell....

Evidently not even interesting enough to any of his "fans" for it to be on YouTube.

This new T-mobile commercial:

What kept the wife from leaping off of the couch and strangling the bastard is beyond me.

Unfortunately, the people who make the ads are not responsible for the policies of every single Subway restaurant.  We have a similar problem where I work.  Ever so often, commercials and print ads for Kmart will advertise cd's as being on sale.  The problem is, the Kmart where I work no longer sells cd's (except around Christmas, and even then we only sell Christmas cd's).  So while it is technically false advertising, I don't think anyone who wanted to sue the company would have much of a case, as the advertisements are meant for the company as a whole, and not specifically the one where you live.  And I haven't really paid close attention to the aforementioned Subway ads, but I would imagine there's probably a disclaimer somewhere that says something like "At participating restaurants", and as long as that's there, then legally they've done all they need to do.

Wow.  I thought she was going to have stroke.  If you can't take that once in a while then you need to keep your dog outside.

I think some animal abuse occurred afterwards.

Vets recommend that when your dog does this you need to empty it's anal sacks.

Now her look of horror is completely justified.

To make those Quick Slap commercials more annoying, they decided to make a cheesy dance song for it now..

It would be a relief to never see hear that bad voiceover ask, "if eXtenze didn't do something pretty amazing, could we afford to do this?". You could afford it if you kept billing people over and over again for crap they don't want. Or infomercials with people talking about (and showing pictures of) clogged colons.

I particularly hate any kind of weight loss ad, but the ones with the bone-skinny women obsessing over calories are really sickening. And what the hell is up with that commercial with the woman chugging down a freaking yogurt in the supermarket. "At last, a yogurt with 80 calories instead of 100, guess I'll slurp that crap down like a deranged freak with a l. acidophilus  fetish in the middle of the supermarket."

Wow, way to say absolutely nothing explaining your cult, Scientology.
