Irritating Food-Related TV Commercials

So which food-related or restaurant-related commercials bug you the most?

For whatever reason, the new commercial advertising Wishbone's new "spray" salad dressings is like fingernails on a chalkboard to me.

Anyone else have food-related commercials that make them want to hit the mute button?

I find all of Carl's Jr. commercials offensive. They don't make me want to eat at a restaurant where the food will drip all over my clothes or where slobs eat. I don't equate messy inconsiderate customers with good food.

Any previews on FoodTV for "Ham on the Street" or those other ones with the slogan "...there are better ways to compete with food..."(or something to that effect).

I noticed tonight that FoodTV runs a quick commercial during the show in the lower right hand corner of the screen. Tonight it was an ad for a knife telling you to buy now on FoodTV!

You only get 22 minutes of show in a 30 minute slot as it is, now they're advertising during the show!

I hate those Burger King commercials too. Oh and now Denny's has a commercial with people staring at one of the breakfast plate's like it's the best food on Earth.

Mrs. Big Dog and I aren't fond of the Wheat Thins commercial with the animated weird looking lady diving into a pool that looks like a box of Wheat Thins.

Like the cracker though, just not the commercial.
