    Most Annoying Commercials

    This thread is the result of my extreme hatred of the commercials for Revlon. You know the ones, it starts off with singing "I believe in love..." and has Hallie Berry, Julianne Moore and two other women. It seems as if one of these commericals is on each commercial break. I can't press mute or change the channel fast enough. I certainly do not feel the need to go be any Revlon products because of these annoying commercials.

    I also find commercials for Jaguar incredibly annoying. We have ones that pronounce it "Jag U ar", like the British do, instead of the American "Jagwar". I first heard this on the radio, and I swear my first reaction was, what the heck is a Jag U ar? Now they are on TV. I don't like anything that tries to make itself pompous like this.

    What commercials bug you?

    Self-promoting Governor Jim McGreevey commercials. McGreevey's latest budget includes nearly $2B in borrowed funds. Yet he spent millions of taxpayer dollars on so-called public service announcements that are actually self-congratulatory personal PR spots claiming he's solved the car insurance, motor vehicle and EZ Pass problems, is protecting people from cancer and AIDS, and is the champion of the environment. All this and he's not even running for re-election until NEXT year.

    Meanwhile, several of his closest pals have been arrested on extortion charges, a Cabinet member was forced to resign due to a scandal over misappropriation of funds, his corrupt State Police appointee and outlandish Homeland Security wannabe were dismissed, environmental groups are outraged over his sellout for political patronage, and he got in deep dodo over family vacations billed to the State of NJ or paid for by the mob-controlled International Longshoremen's union.

    Every time I see one of these commercials I want to SCREAM.

    The Six Flags one with the old man dancing. When that song gets in my head, it never leaves.

    I HATE the one where a woman is wandering around and a voiceover says "I can't concentrate. Could I be pregnant?" As if that would be the first thing a woman thinks when she's having trouble concentrating!

    It's for some pregancy test. But concept is so absurd!

    Kara, totally agree. The creepy guy with the distorted face gives me the shivers. The commercial that currently bugs me is the one where supposedly surprised homeowers are suppose to call long distance on two separate phones to see which service has the best reception........so stupid....42

    The commercial with the talking oven mitt. I can't remember what restaurant it is right now. I really hate that one.

    Viagra commercials and the female counterpart. Ick!

    Like Dee, I don't like feminine product commercials.

    I kinda like the "I believe in love...bellisimo, mon amour" one for Revlon. I like the music.

    The ones I absolutely HATE are the big truck, big SUV ads with horrendously pounding musical background. They're screaming along on peaceful one lane dirt roads at 80 mph and roaring through creekbeds so fast they create a bow-wake!!

    I guess they've targeted their market.... the whole thing is so environmentally dismissive. (I wish instead of just a 'mute' button we could send an impulse through the TV to the marketing department, all wearing shock collars.)

    "all wearing shock collars" I know where I'd put them.
    There was one of Quizno's last spring with some odd looking animals and the sound was really freaky. I even emailed them about it and they were passing out coupons somewhere and I wouldn't take them. Told them not until they quit using that commercial and he answered that he'd been hearing that a lot. I don't like the loud screaming car salesman or any rap. McDonald's has a really bad one.

    I like that one! I think it is because I have only seen it twice. I think that makes a difference. I don't think I would hate the Revlon commercials so much if they weren't constantly on.

    The gecko commercial for that car insurance company. In fact, I dislike all of their commercials (the "good news" has really gotten old)
