    There was a very recent ad that got some news attention earlier this week that revolved around a contest that will be decided in a few days that I felt was pretty over the top. That's all I'll say. PM me I guess if you need more detail.

    Chevy truck commercials.

    The focus groups should be loaded into the bed of one of their sub-par trucks and driven somewhere unpleasant.

    If you build it, they will come?

    More likely, if you COOK it, they will come.

    I actually really dug this commercial the first couple hundred times I saw it:


    But I swear, it's played during every single commercial break on every single channel for the last month and a half.

    The holiday commercials from Honda. Do they even realize that "Holiday Road" is not a Chrismas song?

    Anything with "Flo", the Statue of Liberty in the background, some lame "General" running around or that silly gecko.

    Worst of all those horrible "cash now" things trying to suck people into selling their annuities, probably for pennies on the dollar. What's worse is just thinking there must be a lot of people with annuities if they can afford to constantly run those commercials.

    Thank goodness for the FF button or I'd go insane :P

    The iPad Pro commercial with that stupid girl who claims she doesn't know what a "computer" is.

    I'm sure someone has to have mentioned it, but the two idiots on the Sonic commercials drive me batty!

    I watched that commercial several times today while watching my NFL Sunday Ticket and I thought it was a good commercial for what they're trying to sell while targeting parents as well as children to buy that device.

    There seems to be a few fans of the guys here.

    Not a specific commercial, but a type or class. The local new car auto dealer. So many of them have owners who's ego is so great they do their own commercial and don't hire professional talent (of which they have none).

    It's worse when they try to be funny, they are so bad. There's one now who's running a commercial of "funny outtakes". I'm so grateful for my DVR.

    So, in other words, I take it the people who made this commercial are seemingly against campfires in general-- is that it?

    The Slingers have to rank in the top ten for worst, stupid, and irritating commercials of all time. They are fingers on a chalkboard for me.

    The Visa commercials touting how easy it is to just tap. Someone explain just why I'd want something that's so easy to use accidentally? Those commercials certainly don't make the product/process enticing.

    I found this thread so I could post how much I hate The Slingers. Somebody beat me to it.

    The ones I hate are usually Regional radio commercials because they are repeated over and over again.

    The Hilton.com commercials with that really annoying actress. She just gets on my nerves.

    This is just one of them.

    The Lincoln (i think) car commercial with the opera singer doing a falsetto, meant to convey elegance. This started airing sometime in November and I see it multiple times a day.
