The GEICO camel/Hump Day ad.

I sort of liked it when it first came out, but it's gotten old fast.  Geico has had a history of making some of the most annoying commercials IMHO, with Progressive not far behind.  State Farm even got into it a while back with the whole Aaron Rodgers/"Discount Double Check" thing.  What is it with insurance companies and silly commercials?

I don't like the AT&T commercial with the little girl in it. She uses the word "kindergarten".

This one right here:

I will ressurect this topic. I hate the commercials where they ask you to send money to help poor children who are not as fortunate as others. I think those commercials are designed to play on the viewers' sympathy.

The Strongbow ad with Patrick Stewart was amusing at first, but TWC must play it twice during every commercial break.

I'm tired of it

The last poster that talked about DQ, just made me have a flash back of the late-1990s, with their "Meet me at DQ!" commercials. Even though it was when I was watching WMUR, when I lived in south-central New Hampshire...

The DQ commercials are actually cool with me!  :thumbsup:

Some of the Superbowl commercials introduced this year were attrocious, like the new one for Mtn Dew Kickstart, "PuppyMonkeyBaby". Weird concept for a Superbowl commercial.

That and I think they're playing reused stock footage on their "new" commercials. <_<

Don't get me wrong, I'm a charitable guy. When it comes to this kind of stuff--especially for those with muscular dystrophy or cancer, etc., at least they're local and I'm working with the real deals.

The GMC commercials with "Eminence Front." I got tired of the song already after hearing it on TWC all the time :P

The DirecTV "Power to Turn Back Time" commercials with Jon Bon Jovi are starting to get on my nerves.

I kinda liked them at first.

I'll keep it going. The St. Jude Children's Research hospital commercial about childhood cancer. Seeing the kids with bald heads due to losing hair from chemo and seeing people cry on there and the seriousness of what they're talking about, plus that fact that's it's very sad. I can't stand it.  :angry: :(

I absolutely hate those Chevy ads. Like that one where they locked people in cages when there was a bear outside. The guy then shows off the trucks and the people forget that THEY ARE BEING ATTACKED BY BEARS.

Absolutely HATED these annoying Quiznos ads from '03 or '04. Those "spongmonkeys" specifically really gave me the creeps.
