    But....If you heard it more than 10 times, that tune would literally stick in your head. There has to be some guy living in his mom's basement cranking out these jingles that stick to your brain.

    Ads for the Ellen show. She just creeps me out, it's those unnatural eyes that do it.

    It's also somewhat annoying when they run ads for food that aren't available in the area. For example Sonic, they run their ads all the time but there isn't any in Massachusetts so what's the point. Cici's is another one, there aren't any remotely close to MA. I'm in a pissy mood today so I just feel like whining :stuck_out_tongue:

    Sonic is pretty good, however you are not missing much by not having Cici's in your area.

    The Michael Phelps one for talk space are lame. Have we really come to the point where we have to get therapy over the phone?

    I don't know, I don't watch TV anymore. 5+ years.
    Skip YouTube ads asap.

    That was wild! I am all too familiar with the commercials, but never knew anything about the "charity" itself ...

    I've seen at least two more of the Dos Equis commercials set to Total Eclipse of the Heart, and they all suck! This new ad campaign is so bad, Corona's are starting to sound good

    The new ASPCA ads are as bad as the Sarah McLachlan ads. Then there's the Morgan and Morgan "for the people" commercials, more like "screwing the people".

    You mean Captain Obvious? He's hit or miss for me. Some are terrible some are pretty funny. The little horse one I really liked

    What grinds my gears is how these Pharma commercials are retrofitting the choruses of my childhood songs with the name of their new drug.

    I don't really watch TV. I don't have cable, which I got rid of 10 years ago. I do have an antenna, but I get very little on it, due to being in a dead zone. I do get a bit on it, and the ONLY reason I think I get anything is because I live right behind the local cable TV comapny antenna, and I think some signal bounces off to mine.

    That being said, whenever I do try to watch TV, and actually get something, I am shocked by all the drug ads.

    Hell, it seems the "cure" is worse than the problem.

    The GMC one where the husband buys his and hers trucks and the wife wants the black pick-up. It might not be so bad if it wasn’t on every commercial break.

    LOL, I figure the woman in the commercial should do an ad for enema's. That way she can clean out both ends

    The first 5 seconds tell you what it cures, the remaining 25 seconds list the side effects.

    All commercials are annoying to me, but most of the insurance ones are especially so. (And why does Flo and the rest of her idiot cronies all wear an apron?) Being retired from the insurance industry I know what a sham some of those promises are in those commercials.

    The exception to the crappy insurance commercials are the Nationwide Insurance ones with Peyton Manning, and especially the ones with Brad Paisley. Those are entertaining.

    In the first commercials, she was a "cafe waitress" - only serving insurance boxes. Flo is the waitress on the right from the 70's sitcom "Alice".

    I remember that show but you must mean that the current Flo character is using the same name in the evolvement of that character into the commercials.

    Oh, I almost forgot: those commercials for Foundation for a Better Life / PassItOn.com, especially that one with the Michael Bublé song in it. I think that's why God created the mute button.

    There are a couple of them from Progressive Insurance that involve a guy who from waist down is a motorcycle. That is just way over the top weird.
