The credit card commercial where the guy is explaining to his wife you can use the points to buy anything and he gets exited that they get to go to Italy. The wife says we cant go and motions at her new dress and he smiles. The bitc* spent an Italy trip worth of cash on a dress. I would have yelled that she should give it to her sister and Im going to put it to good use.

Would you rather your wife be happy or visit Italy and have her waste more money on souvenirs?

Any and all of the attorney at law, personal injury, social security, structured settlement BS commercials.

Oh and the Safe Auto commercials!

Any Capital One credit card commercial. Especially the newer "create your own card" ones.

Number one on my hate list are those ignorant, diarrhea, bowel or gas commercials. I really don't want to know about somebody's gas or constipation problems!

Another type are feminine hygiene product commercials. Just douche and shut up about it.

The Cialis commercials are bad. Who wants to take something and then you and your S.O. end up in bathtubs outside somewhere?

Basically, I hate all commercials. Most advertisers really "assume" the viewing public is a bunch of morons. I refuse to buy anything that perpetuates ignorance.


The last commercial I sort of liked was.... "WHERE'S THE BEEF?".

I usually mute the TV during commercials, however these come to mind in one way or another.

GEICO commercials have been airing for so long that any and all of them are unpleasant. They keep using the same themes and characters, only changing the scene and don't contain much content or originality anymore.

The Allstate commercials. . . "You're in Good Hands" and "Accident Forgiveness" irritate me because they are a cheap ass insurance company and sold me a bunk "Uninsured Motorist" policy that cost me thousands after a hit and run when I found out that it only covered medical expenses, no property damage. In addition they tried to undercut me on a hail damage assessment for my residence (mainly roofing) by about 50% of estimated repair costs. (sorry for the vent )Stay away!

The Bud Light, "too soft" and "too hard" commercials are not that clever, but I did laugh the first I saw the one with the stapler, but I probably had a few by then. It always seems like they try too hard year after year.

The Coors Light commercials with actual former NFL coaches' post game press conferences cut up, with answers fitted in question to off (football) topic "Coors" related questions, are great! One of the main reasons they are good is because they keep rolling out new ones periodically throughout the season and use multiple colorful coaches. Some hate 'em, I like 'em.

Finally Miller Lite has a good line with the whole "if I was hanging off a cliff?" and "I've finally found the one." The Dog adds a lot to the cliff one. They are at least original and the guy kinda looks funny too.

Had to list a couple positives , because the negative ones bother me and I mute them.

"It's a EUROPEAN Shoulder Bag"

And the castrated hubbie says...

"It was a gift" and bats his eyes at his mighty whip-cracking mistress
I'll have to disagree with this one, I find the Progressive commercials with "Flo" are quite cute.... but maybe I just have a crush on the girl

As for the broadview security, those commie-ercials p*ss me off.

That was a classic ; i seem to remember hearing that the lil ole lady actress died a couple of years ago.


I didn't mind the first few VW commercials with the classic 65 or 66 beetle; they reminded me of my first car a late 65 beetle. I'd give my left nut to have that car back..........i would want anesthesia though.
