    There are zillions of them but the ones that really bug me are the Broadview (Brinks) home security. As soon as the BG has kicked in the door - he hears the alarm and runs away. What a crock of BS.

    The commercial I want to see shows the BG kicking in the door - and then receiving a full mag of 230 JHPs in the face (from a 1911 of course)...

    Anything the one eyed Sham Wow guy pitches, The stupid GEICO Gecko, any INBEV (Bud) commercial, the ones with Billy Mays screaming at the camera, the Coors light Ice Train, all locally produced dealership ads!!

    I have issues with the Broadview (Brinks) commercials, too!! The guy no one knows who crashed the party and returns later to kick in the back door!! Just dumb! And the dispatch guy is sending help now? What, is there a coffee house close by?

    What pisses me off the most are the commercials for the "Tax Relief" organizations. Some really Goober looking a$$hat and his dild0 wife are smiling stupidly at the camera and stating how they owed $100,000 in back taxes and settled for only $1,000.

    I pay a $hit load in taxes. If those ba$tards would pay their taxes maybe mine would not be so high! Morons!

    The Free Credit Report band. I hope their credit is so sh***y that they can't afford Brinks Security, and some BG does them harm.

    When we bought our first house in a suburb of San Antonio in 86, I found out quickly that all the local LEOs hung out in the 7-11 (in the strip mall at the entrance) as they had a donut shop in the back. In my neighborhood, you didn't call 911 - you called the 7-11...

    A college professor once told me that advertisers want the consumer to either LOVE their ads or HATE them. Either way, they're getting a strong reaction that the consumer will probably remember.

    Looks like it's working on you guys. Me too. If I had a choice, I wouldn't use Brinks for security SPECIFICALLY because of those commercials!

    Cavemen were cool for maybe the first 3 commercials. From there, nosedive.

    The Gieco Gecko is easier to stomach than the stack of money with googly eyes.

    I'm surprised no one's mentioned the highly irritating and virtually incomprehensible AT&T cell phone ads with the ugly bitch lecturing either her son or her husband about AT&T minutes. Dumb.

    And any drug commercial. If it's so great, why have 75% of your friggin' commercial with warning's about the possible side effects?*


    Spare me the FDA ad requirements - that's not the point.

    I find the Gekko to be mildly amusing, but the stack of money started off bad and got worse. The cavemen are just stupid. I would cancel my GEICO cycle policy if I could find anything comparably cheap.

    The stupid AT&T rollover minutes just pisses me off. Slap the stupid off the kid's face and take his cell phone. If he cannot get it through his thick head, retroactively abort him.

    Brinks and their digital forcefield that surrounds your house. Give me a break, By the time we even get the call from the security company the perp has had about 4 minutes to do what he will. Our response time to a priority call is usually less than that, but now he has an 8 minute head start. The burglars know this and ignore the alarm, rip off what they can find quickly and skedaddle.

    Commercials in the movie theater before the main attraction. Not the previews but the commercials for Coke and the new NBC fall lineup. If you cannot make enough money selling $10 buckets of 50 cent popcorn maybe you have a bad business model. I go to the movies about 2X a year. It takes me 6 months to forget how much I hate movie theaters.

    +1 on the pharmaceuticals. If there is a rare but serious side effect like DEATH, I don't think I am interested. The ED meds nauseate me.

    The stupid condom and personal lubricant ads. "Enhances her pleasure"? Do it right little willy and she will experience pleasure. If you need to rub some Icy Hot on it, you have a problem. Nuff said.

    LMFAO, Robo. "Icy Hot". Funny and true.

    "I have a settlement and I need cash now" is a bit irritating as well.

    I had to laugh at first, but now I'm finding every one of her commercials irritating...the Progressive insurance chick with the bright RED lipstick that tells the guy in the couple...

    "So you won't have to carry her purse"

    And his wife replies...

    "It's a EUROPEAN Shoulder Bag" :p

    And the castrated hubbie says...

    "It was a gift" :eek: and bats his eyes at his mighty whip-cracking mistress :D

    It may be a Florida tourism board thing...maybe not. It's not very effective. But, it's just a voice wispering, and it's a loud throuty wisper...just aweful. If I ever remember what it is I'll go out of my way not to give them my $.

    I'm pretty sick of all the Avatar commercials too. Not that they're annoying, but my gosh, if it needs this much airtime.....

    If the cavemen were to get beaten in the face with a premitive club, I wouldn't be sad.

    Oooohhhh, this is a thread that could nuclear over night....

    WHERE DO I START?!!?

    We have had some great mentions, but what about some of these pieces of shi'ite??

    Head on, you apply it right to your forehead. Really, I got a better use for it. I am going to take the Head On guy and ram his head right up...

    Bob from Enzyte's Enlarged prostrate and kick him in his new bag of giant toys. This grinning F**KER needs to get beat about the head and neck by a cue ball stuffed into a tube sock and couple with a bag of wood screws....

    Subway and their stupid singing construction workers. What was even worse was when they did the blooper reel and made another commercial on how these geniuses couldn't even get the god damn song write. I hope they all fall into a cement mixer and get poured into the foundation of the Hoffa Building.

    Not to be outdone, Quizno's comes up with some stupid homo-erotic talking oven with Barry White's voice and some sloppy haired Muppet that can't think for himself and yet stuck his PENIS in a hot oven. Yeah, that makes me want a sammich. The F**K is that all about?!

    Anything involving old people who can't take care of themselves and need LIFE ALERT. Really? My grandparents didn't need it and they lived just fine by themselves. Old does NOT equal you become a moron and incapable of living your life.

    TWIX - Suddenly jamming a whole candybar in your suck hole is a way to buy time from being a total douchebag?? Since when? I hope you choke on that damn candy bar and the hot chick steps on your face on the way out the door.

    Microsoft's Loser Seinfeld Commercial. That makes me want to rent a Ryder truck. I am just saying. Seinfeld was NEVER relevant. NEVER. There is a special place in hell reserved for that POS. And I would LOVE to arrange that meeting as soon as possible....

    I could go on and on....

    Gone are the days of "WHERE'S THE BEEF". :(

    I agree completely. I like the one with the hissing frilled lizard as a guest star.

    Truly irritating considering my previous job as a state tax auditor, the initial notice on a CP2000 or similar missing 1099-type "audit" didn't include the associated expenses & adjustments to itemized deductions that usually weren't available to the auditor. It always made me nervous when an income tax notice came back with a check & no adjustments. (i was young and needed the money OK) In other words, any decent accountant could knock a good bit off the first notice amount without even breaking a sweat. I much preferred auditing the casinos; they always took the first notice as a starting point & worked out the legitimate adjustments.
