    I tend not to watch tv too much anymore, but when I do I inevitably see one of these commercials. They make me want to shoot a rocket launcher at my tv.

    If you wanted to torture me, get a tape of all these insipid Radio Shack commercials and the 10-10-220 (the ones with Terry Bradshaw, Mike Piazza, and Toby Keith) put it on a loop and force to to watch it non-stop. I would go insane.

    Yeah, I hate them also. The worst one is where Howie Long gets a brand new RCA all-in-one surround sound system, that sucks, and is watching a B-Movie Star Wars ripoff in Pan & Scan on a 19 inch screen from about 20 feet away and enjoying it.

    At least Teri Hatcher and Vanessa Williams were in them, haven't seen any recently though so I don't know if they're still around. [​IMG]

    I think the 10-10-220 commercial with Mike Piazza and John McEnroe is hilarious. [​IMG]

    One commercial that doesn't really annoy me but makes me wonder is the one about the Caravan or some other van where the kids talk about the movies they've seen on the pop down tv. The first kid says "You talkin to me? You talkin to me?" Which is from Taxi Driver. The second kid says, "Heeeeeeeerrrrreeess Johnny!!" Which is from The Shining! Every time I see this commercial I think to myself, "How can these kids be watching these movies? These are very violent movies which NO kid their age should be seeing. I just don't believe nothing has ever been said about it.Has anyone else seen these ads?
