My vote is for the McDonalds commercial for fish sandwich, with the fish singing. The jingle is so freaking annoying.
Also not a fan of mucinex''s add with talking mucus. Blech. I guess it works, but grossness.

What are yours?

The old OLD NAVY commercials where everyone would break out in dance to some old pop song. There was one specific one but I can''t remember which song (darn it!) ANNOYING.

Come to think of it, I am a mute button presser because most commercials annoy me.


AND that annoys FI! LOL

I can''t remember the name of the product, but I do remember all the rest of the lines from the spot:

"Apply directly to the forehead.
Apply directly to the forehead.
Apply directly to the forehead."

Ugh. If I used medications, I would make it a point to never buy that product.

I really can''t stand the radio ad for those computer skills training schools. The synthesizer reminds me of a horribley cheesey 80s song that never should have been made. It gets stuck in my head.

Back in the day we used to have these ads in my home state for the furniture store Alperts. This guy, John from Alperts, had the thickest RI accent you''ve ever heard. He would always start the ads off with "Hi! I''m John from Alperts!" Those ads were infamous growing up.

I also get quite annoyed when the $5 foot long jingle pops into my head. Like. Right. Now.

Those ''Depression can hurt, but you don''t have to'' commercials.

What the hell is that about? If anything it will make a depressed individual even more depressed.

Dude, I totally remember John from Alperts! I once read a newspaper article that his name wasn''t really John and that he did a bunch of ads around the country under different names. It was effective cause his voice was so annoying that people remembered it.

Every ad that we list here is effective since we can remember it.

And the ziplock freezer bag commercial with the Erika chick. FI''s ex''s name is Erika and she was so full of herself. I see the commercial and my mind instantly goes to her singing along with the commercial (singing about herself mind you)...

When I saw the title of this thread I immediately thought of these commercials: Head-On or Active-On! They drive me just nuts. I''m a addict to news channels and they are always there - drives me up the friggin wall

Now where is the thread for favourite commercials? I''ve got a great one!!

YES! It was the inspiration for this thread. Damn fish, why would you be singing about wanting another fish that is about to be eaten? Why can you sing? The very premise is nuts and that darn jingle, gah! DH watches the Celtics religiously and that commercial is on every commercial break.

All the late night sexy ads, no I don''t want to see her saurkraut
or anything else attached to some skanky looking chick, just because I am awake late at night doesn''t mean I want to see this crap.


So many people find this ad funny but for some reason it gives me the sheets http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mxkUE5TtOFQ, I can''t explain why it just does.
