I hate just about any commercial that spends 30-60 seconds trying to be funny or "memorable" instead of just selling you the goddamn product, but one series that has really drawn my ire lately is the Baker Mayfield Progressive commercials.

I miss the commercial jingles. I've got a whole CD of them called Tee Vee Toons: The Commercials and a whole DVD box set called 1,001 Classic Commercials.

Man, those were the days!

That Martha Stewart commercial with the guy chopping his finger off and falling out the window of his skyscraper apartment needs to go. It's pretty pathetic when, even after seeing it a few times a week, I couldn't tell you the product being advertised.

I hated. And man i do mean hated. That stupid skreoonking "wE ReaDy" Football commercial. It would air every freaking Football season and it constantly grated on my nerves everytime i saw it. Thankfully, i don't see it popping up again this year.

Every single drug commercial where they spend 5 seconds saying the good the drug can do for you and then 30 seconds telling you all the ways it can ruin your life while happy music plays in the background over images of idyllic families having fun together.

Have any of you heard of the banned skittles commercial? It's one of the most disgusting things i've ever seen. Search at your own risk.

All the woke-ass "we're all in this together" coronavirus commercials. Especially the cringe-ass State Farm commercial about this being the "New Normal". skreeonk off with that poop.

I'm sure those at State Farm and Taco Bell and any other commercial virtue signaling really gives a poop about the fact that peoples' livelihoods, jobs, and mental health are going to poop because of these extended lockdowns.

^Yeah I'm getting really sick of coronavirus commercials, really skreeonking fast. Like, I'm trying to watch TV to forget that the world is in the middle of a pandemic, do I need to be reminded of it every five minutes?

Every time I hear the 3/4's of the drug ads rattling off the side effect to these medications, after things were being pushed as the greatest thing since sliced bread. I keep flashing back to the old SNL, bit, Super Happy Fun Ball. It goes just like these real medication adverts.

This commercial isn't one I hate, but something I thought up on the spot.

Has anyone seen the one for the massage service that says "Do you Matago?" Every time I see it, I can't help but say to myself "Do you Matango?"

Has anyone else here done this, or am I the only one?
