    D_M's most hated commercials (update)

    Shemin's (or was it chermin's?) shoe outlet. it has a stupid jingle.
    and the tagline for their shoe prices is that they say that they are out of their minds. and i wholeheartedly agree :D .

    a local commercial about a plumber service hotline. it ripped off Head-On (which sucked to begin with). it always is like "need a plumber? call 1-800-PLUMBER". You know what? i won't

    and while we're on the subject of Head-On, what is Head-On anyway?

    I don't like the Optimum Online commercials with that very unshaven-looking gentleman. He creeps me out.

    I don't what the song in that commercial is, but I do know where you can find out. Try out a site called whatsthatcalled.com.

    Thanks for the help, Blackstar.

    And die, yogurt girls, die. That would be never-having-to-hear-your-voices-again good.

    EDIT: It was "Either Way" by Wilco. I'm totally remembering that site from now on.

    The Vitamin Water ones where the announcer is yelling something (i.e. TRY TAKING A CROSS COUNTRY blah blah blah). Really grating.

    The latest Head-on annoys me, though more because of how they have several voices in unison asking "Head-on, apply directly to the forehead?" Something about that creeps me out.

    The Viagra ad with the bunch of guys singing "Viva Las Vegas" but changing Las Vegas to Viagra. At first I found it kinda funny (if jarring, I was expecting "Las Vegas." Didn't expect it to turn into a Viagra commercial). Now it's annoying.

    The Geico commercial about wasting 15 minutes online. The one that annoys me the most is the guy I believe is called the "Barking Boy." If you've seen it, I'm sure you know what I'm talking about. He makes a bunch of just downright odd noises and sounds. The one it's attached to (two guys "jousting" with mattresses) isn't all that bad. But there's another one with one of those "Chin-people" (eyes attached to the chin, upside down camera, etc) that's eating. But nothing tops that "Barking boy." Ugh.

    That commercial with the two women in the doctor's office they have have a hair flexibility contest and one ends up in a neck brace. Just plain annoying.

    There ain't no bugs on me
    There ain't no bugs on me
    There may be bugs on some of these mugs
    But there ain't no bugs on me

    I also mute the Snickers commercials where the guitar guy sings the song about Snickers. You know the one, with lyrics including "sings a song of satisfaction".

    You mean the British accented gecko? He's still around. Those ads still air from time to time.

    i was going to mention these yesterday but i accidently closed out my browser.1. SuperDeluxe. the website isn't even that good.2. this one car commercial i saw yesterday around the time i posted in this thread yesterday. it had the Pink Panther theme by a choir (or something similar). it was just irratating.3. the Majic (i think that's how the company spells it) window commercials that say "some things weren't meant to be plastic" i saw one where a person installed a port-a-john in his house. it was just stupid.

    I liked that k-9 advantix commercial,but I hate that snickers commercial with a passion. here's a question,why must almost every commercial be so stupid? they're just trying to hard to be funny,but they fail miserably.

    There's one Esurance commercial with a moment as bad as any bit of video game voice acting. The guy says, "It's like watching your car come back to life?" as if he's asking a question, but he isn't.

    I think those dogs were cute. >.> But yes, that commercial is more aggravating than trying to find something good on TV on Tuesday nights.

    That's another Sunsilk one, right? The company that gave us the "Use our hair products so you're pretty and blonde and not thinky, or else no one will like you" ad with the cartoon catfight at the end? Yeah. Their products are crap, so it fits that their ads are.

    And the Advantix ad - it'd be cute if the CGI lip movements didn't make the puppies look demonically possessed. Poor things.

    I must be the only person who hates the eSurance ads that desperately want to be a Kim Possible knock-off. What does any of this have to do with insuring your car? You watch them on mute, and you have no idea what service eSurance provides. Plus, something about the voice & design of the girl in those commercials really irks me - there's something oddly generic about her. Someone should just give the creators a webtoon and start a campaign that actually shows - doesn't rely just on dialogue over random action scenes - what the company does.

    D_M's most hated commercials jumps the shark!

    1. Vitamin Water. i must admit, the water is actually good. i just don't want to see 50 cent (or was it Snoop Dogg?) to conduct an orchastra (sic) to prove it.

    2. the M&Ms one with all the "personalized" M&Ms. the M&Ms look stupid and the song is even worse.

    3. anything with "chin people" *shudders*

    4. the most recent Cap'n Crunch Commercials. it would be okay if the girl didn't say "see you never". what a brat.

    5. while on the subject of brats, i hate Bratz commercials. they just took Barbie and made it "appealing" to new-age girls. i say it's appalling.

    I don't really hate this commercial, but it's so freaking bizarre I feel I must mention it here. That Wendy's commercial for their new bacon sandwich with the black-and-white footage of screaming female Beatles' fans with dudes' faces cut-and-pasted over their heads. That weird burly man in the red-headed Wendy wig is strange enough, but how is old film footage of swooning bobby-soxers with men's faces superimposed over their heads supposed to make me want a bacon burger? Any commercial showing guys acting like or impersonating women is kind of creepy to me.

    Also, the ads for the Bratz movie. I cringe a little whenever the blond girl says "Brattitude!" Ugh.:shrug:

    Head-On is a homeopathic (i.e., water) headache medicine. The reason why they can't tell you specifically that it's a headache medicine is because the Bureau for Better Business ruled the makes of Head-On cannot make any dubious claims, such as a water glue stick being able to cure headaches.

    Since I've avoided talking about it for so long...

    NEVER ANSWER THE DOOR WITHOUT YOUR SAFE-SIDE ADULT, EVEN IF IT'S SOMEONE YOU KNOW.

    God, that commercial both irritates me and creeps me out at the same time (the woman with the freaky hair just scares me).
