    That one Cheerios commercial with the little kid preparing the cereal around the overnight, and giving it to his parents.

    Really? I mean, I would never wake my parents that early because it's really, really, really stupid.

    If the parents would be waking up, it would work nicely, but this is making the kid into a narc.

    Sure but professionally it's over pal. :D

    It's just that I've always wanted to be in an action figure commercial when I was young but it sadly never happened. :crying:

    Well....little kids are a little...."stupid". But because they dont "know any better" it's considered cute. Eh... its a little kid, whatcha gonna do?
    Which reminds me...I was watching this one commercial with my pops and it was some ish with mushrooms in it. He was talking about "they put any damn thing in your hear". Lulz ensued.

    Those Esurance ads are some of the worst and obnoxious commercials on television right now. I know these ads get a lot of love on these forums and I have no idea why, they are incredibly cliche and cheesy. The animation is incredibly lame, the girl's voice is annoying as hell, and the whole "OMG sexy female spy" thing has been done to death even more so than Star Wars references.

    I don't see why these ads would even convince someone to join this insurance company.

    Especially one of the more recent ones where the Esurance girl does nothing but just tap a cymbal while some guy sings an annoying song about his insurance problems and how he switched to Esurance. Together with the Progressive ads, they're the two most annoying ad campaigns on TV for me right now. :ack:

    Personally, I still miss the "Stupid Button" ads from before Geico even HAD the gecko.

    My #1 most hated commercial is a radio commercial for "Kars 4 Kids." It was a little kid singing "1-877-Kars4Kids! K-A-R-S Kars 4 Kids! 1-877-Kars4Kids. Donate your car today!" then a middle-aged guy singing the same lyrics, then a random voiceover saying that you can get a vacation voucher for donating your car, then the two singing the lyrics AGAIN. Back when 105.7FM was WHFS and an all-talk station, they played this commercial every other commercial break. Now that they're sports talk, they play it less, but they still play it and it's still annoying.

    My pet peeve on TV right now is that stupid "AIDS Rap" commercial. The commercial itself it borderline offensive, but the stupid CGI teens running around are so lifeless it's not even funny. And they're all wearing these stupid grins, even as they're lying in bed about to die. My god it's just horrible.

    Is it just me or are the Palm Pre ads getting weirder. Maybe I just didn't notice the ones I'm seeing now previously but hearing her talk about stuff like reincarnation and how her phone can hear what she's thinking is just getting freaky.

    The M&M commercial where the Red M&M is running on the grocery store conveyor belt. It's short, but the M&M's panting and the scanner beeping is annoying.

    Yeah, I loved those, too. I liked the "shifty" animation they used. I think I wound up with a couple of them on VHS while I was recording stuff.

    I just saw a Corn Pops commercial with a Corn Pop receiving a scary phone call. After seeing a commercial there's a knock on the door and there's milk bottles (with faces) and then a bunch of zombie milkmen start surrounding the Corn Pop. So far it's not so bad. I dig stuff like this. What ruined it was the milkmen singing "gotta have my pops" in a doo-wop fashion. To top it off it's not even close to October so it feels out of place.

    Today was the first time I saw it. It was on Nickelodeon.

    Edit: The more I think about it I might grow to like it. I was angry about something else when it came on.

    What freaks me out the most about her is that her skin is the exact same yellow tone as her hair. It's weird.

    Oh god, I hate the Palm Pre ads.

    I don't know what it is, but she just creeps me out.

    Ugh, the idiot dad ads from Burger King are back with a vegence. It involves the idiot dad dressed like a GI Joe(or what Stephen Sommers views as GI Joe) only to get stuck. Then he falls to the ground. Then the sprinklers turn on. Then I groan in disgust at how that they still do these.

    Speaking of GI Joe, I really don't like how they play American Badass in the ads. They took almost of the "American" of this franchise.

    WOW. You completely missed the point of the ad.

    The kid is worried about his parent's health, so he gives them a bowl of Cheerios.

    Why must Burger King think dads are always idiots? :shrug:

    But, from the look of the commercial, it was really early, as in overnight early. Would you wake your parents at around 5:00 AM just to eat a cereal? That's technically overeacting.

    I wouldn't at my current age but at his age I probably would have. Don't tell me you've never done something you thought was ok because you were too young to know any better. The point of the commercial is that he's trying to do something nice for his parents because he loves them. He wasn't thinking about the time.

    DirecTV has single-handedly pushed me into being officially annoyed with Peter Jackson's King Kong.
