Okay, I have come to the conclusion that my cable provider is the ONLY one that insists on torturing people with an AWFUL barrage of annoying and senseless commercials for MTV2.
DOES NOBODY ELSE HAVE THE MISFORTUNE OF SEEING "TALKING BABY" PROMOTE "WHERE THEY MUSIC'S AT" RELENTLESSLY? AM I THE ONLY ONE CURSED WITH THAT AWFUL, HORRIBLE PLASTIC DOLL? WHY, LORD? WHYYYYYYYYYYYYY?

That commercial with the guy in the costume & the water park.

Maybe he knows the guy who was asking when the water show is? :P
Seriously, though, it would've been funnier as a cartoon short than a commercial...
There are 4 commercials that I can't stand, and 3 of them they play them before every movie at the movie theatre, and the other is on Cartoon Network, CNN, TNT, TBS and on any Turner owned channel. They are:
1. Nike - the one where they have all the different things racing, like the dog, the guy, the train, the snake, etc.
2. Levi Jeans - the one where the guy's on the car
3. Tropical Sprite Remix - the one with the record and they keep on saying, "Remix. Remix. Remix"
4. AOL - just gets annoying seeing it all the time
I hate AOl's "world wide wow" DSL ads, especially the one that implies Sharon Stone had sex with a stick figure. It's an oldie, but they also used to feature an ad where a girl who looked about 14 proclaimed the people on AOL are "just like me." No, dear, some of them are just -pretending-.
I really hate those commercials that suddenly pop up late at night, showing acne or something equally gross. There should be a couple seconds of warning so people can flip the channel.
The ad that irks me the most isn't really a commercial, but the pop up thing FX puts in most of their shows. It takes up almost a quarter of the screen and makes sounds. The sounds were especially unexpected, and it took me a while to figure out that the weird noises on an FX airing of "American Pie" were actually, IIRC, casino sounds coming from a "Lucky" ad.
And in Eastern Kentucky some radio stations think it's funny to feature an extremely obnoxious hillbilly accent in their commercials. I stab at the off button on the radio like a maniac when commercials featuring any kind of obnoxious fake accent, the Austin Powers and Forrest Gump ones threaten to drive me mad, or kids voice comes on, but the hillbilly thing is especially bad.
I love Barky the Dog, though. "I'm just a grown man who's made a lot of mistakes."
And stay out of Riverdale!
I really hate those Kidz Bop commericals that plague Cartoon Network. Ugh,their songs are so stupid like "Sk8ter Boi". What is up with the "Net" spelling? Are they trying to sound cool?
Oh and those VeggieTales commercials that plague Adult Swim. If I see that pickle type creature jumps those paddle of that ship again, I'm gonna kill myself.
...and actually that's it. If I see a stupid commercial, I usually just laugh at it and take it at face value. For instance, that Garnier Fructis (its a shampoo) commercial with that sexy black haired woman. Now I admit, the music is VERY catchy, but the commercial itself is stupid. Its just a montage of clips with the woman (complete with her hair swinging around and being combed), some dude that plays with her and combs her hair, and an orange slice that fizzles in some acid or something. I just laugh at that commericial and enjoy its catchy music.
This has been Dark Spider....

I hold a special place in my soul, just for hating that commercial.Originally Posted by Conekiller
Actually, during AS lats year they played that *%$#@! Ingorant commercial TWICE almost every break, immediately after it went to break and directly preceeding. I absolutely despised it the first time I saw it and by the end of the month I felt like destroying my television! I skipped shows I would have watched otherwise because I knew that was going to be on. I actually wrote e-mail letters complaining about it to both Cartoon Network and Wrigley's. And finally I personally boycotted Wrigley's for months, (and the only gum I chewed at the time was Big Red) I still avoid it and have developed a taste for Trident.
Why was it so bad?
1. It made absolutely no *%$#@! sense! What the *&%! were they doing on that stupid weight bench!
2. Ugly sweating kids
3. Screaming kids! AAAAAAAAAHHHHH, Push it! AAAAAAHHHHHH! shutupshutupshutupshutupshutupshutupshutupshutup!
4. Screaming Grandma! *&$#$ @#&!$^+ stop it! SHUTUPSHUTUPSHUTUPSHUTUPSHUTUPSHUTUPSHUTUPSHUTUP!
That's how much I hated that commercial.
How appropriate. You fight like a cow
I think there was a vote and the two choices were brown bananas and blue carrots. I don't really get it though. Do the carrots actually taste like carrots? Also, I HATE the Apple Jacks commercials, they claim that their cereal doesn't taste like apples when they DO taste like apples. And even if they didn't taste like apples, why would they advertise that? It's like Country Time lemonade advertising that their lemonade doesn't taste like lemons.Originally Posted by Obi
Another ad I hate is that jeans commercial where a couple is holding hands and hundreds of bulls run toward them yet the jeans magically save them from being trampled. WTF?
Juicy Juice j-max- Has some boy outside school saying bye to all his friends then when everyone's gone he pulls out a walkie talie and calls his mom she drives up to the school and pics him up and then the announcer says some crap like "Cool moms know that cool kids drink J-max" Oh yeah coming up with a "hip" name for your drink that is advertised by 5 yr olds will really appeal to the older set.
This new drink called DNL_ It starts with this lepracane on a sidewalk selling DNL then a cop comes up and asks does he have a permit then the lepracane sayas im not real im a myth and starts dancing aroun d
"Ch-ch-ch-chia!!!" "Try our new Chia-Shaggy and Chia-Scooby!"
Then there's that Honey Combs commercial with Little Red Riding Hood and the Wolf. After I while I was chanting "Eat the girl! Eat the girl!"
Ooh, and let's not forget "Watch it float in MIDAIR! GOOO, YAFFA!!!"
Oh, the horror! The HORROR!!!
I always have to mute the TV when that thing is on, so my parents don't think I am watching porn.Originally Posted by Boy Wonder
Anyway there is one add where there is a white background and various people one by one are singing and dancing to some rap song. Of course the people are old/fat/wearing a format suit or something that makes them look and sound absurd singing the songs they are singing. I think it's for one of those new "iTunes" type websites where you download mp3's for money.
Those baseball instruction videos by Tom Eumanski's constantly airing ESPN. I'm not sure which is worse the fact that it has Fred McMriff (Offical cognomen: The crime dog) with that stupid hat sitting on top of skull or the shots of all those kids moving in synchronized robotic fashions. Why hasn't this commercial been unceremoniously shot in head?
