Annoying TV Commercials
 
I was watching that new "GO Meats!" commercial for Hillshire Farms and all I have to say is, ANNOYING!!

Oh my goodness. Everytime it's on I mute my TV. It's catchy in a way but mostly it's just obnoxious. Does anyone else have that one commercial they can't stand to sit through?

I agree. That commercial is in the "stupid" category for me. That kind of ad annoys me a lot.

A new Comcast ad with animated characters speaking in rapid monotones annoys me as well. There are more.

Ya, that one is annoying.

Mine is the Glad freezerbag one with "Erica" where a guy talks and there's these like these high pitched voices saying things like handy! while she makes faces.

That's it if you don't know the one I'm talking about.

I actually like this one, but mostly because of the sports like announcer in the background.

I like Ericaaaaaaa, grand poobah of pasta and chancellor of cheese. I actually have to sing that every time it comes on.....drives the hubster a little crazy :glare:. Really don't like Hillshire-Go Meat, but I hate the commercial of the kid who's selling chowder to tourists in t-shirts (free credit report, I think). They have saturated the market with that one. The little gecko who has put the guy's first dollar that he earned in the snack machine is cute. Love that little gecko eating that chip.

Glad to have this chance to vent.

I HATE commercials that have infants/toddlers
dubbed to present the sellers message.
The latest round is by ETrade.
It seems almost obsecne to me.

PS: Also hate 'Go Meat'
like Erica!

Wow, I am so glad to say I have never seen any of those! However, here they have been airing these commercials with a stack of money with eyes following people around...the money you could have saved with Geico I think? AHHHHH! I hate those! (sidenote, I dropped geico years ago for a reason, like the fact that I was tossing them TONS of money!)

My husband and I have NO idea what those dumb commercials are supposed to be about. They are pointless and annoying so +1 to you for that one.

Saphellae 03-09-2009 09:02 PM

There are plenty of annoying ones, I agree! I just watched Go Meat and wow.... haha!
THIS is the WORST commercial I have seen...
YouTube - Head On - Annoying Headache Commercial



However one of my favorites...
YouTube - Bridgestone "Scream" Super Bowl Ad
