Worst TV Commercials?

Doesn't need to be food-related. What TV commercials are the worst/annoying, in your opinion?

Toe-nail fungus (Lamitril?) - Have to change the channel.

Whoo-Hoo Whoo-Hoo Whoo, Whoo Hoo Whoo Hoo Hoo - So annoying, don't even remember the name of the product.

AFLACK!!!

Food- related - Paris Hilton and the $6.00 burger. Enough said.

The Vegas commercial where the guy crawls through a construction hole?, rips off his shirt and starts dancing.

The one that starts "We'll be right back after these messages" and ends with "And now back to the show"

I hate most car commercials --- just too darned noisy. Thank heaven for mute buttons. I agree with the toe nail fungus one. It gives me the willies. I tend to read a lot while hubby watches the tube, so any commercial that is so loud it jolts me out of my book makes me want to note the product and NEVER buy it.

The only commercials I've ever really taken a dislike to, I haven't seen in 22 or so years. Cheerio's used to do an animated black-and-white cartoon commercial, usually along the theme of providing energy for kids to do whatever. Unfortunately, the channel that I watched cartoons on at that time would play at least one of those commercials every commercial break, sometimes two. I was really glad to see those commercials go away.

PeppA can't stand any commercials that have to do with ED in men.
