Commercials that you hate

Postby Extreme Warhawk » Tue Jul 23, 2019 2:31 pm

What are some commercials you hate?

A few for me

The She Shed commercial from State Farm

The Snickers commercial with the dumb robber

The Sonic commercials with the two idiots

Progressive commercials in general

Limu Emu from Liberty Mutual

Force Factor ads

Spotify ads. The same 2-3 ads repeated so often in such a short time gets annoying very fast. I don't have money for Premium, so the best solution I have is just to mute the sound for like 15 seconds so I don't suffer through hearing "BECAUSE CONES" and whatnot for the 56th time of the day.

Pretty much every commercial nowadays, they are too long and aren't stylish like they used to be in the 90's or 2000s and don't get me started on the annoying ukulele playing in the background during most commercials now because not only is it the same sounding song, it plays so loudly it often feels like earrape.

Added in 46 seconds:
I really hope the 2020's are more stylish and fun unlike the blandness of the 2010s, because I personally miss the 2000s.

This and then some. I guess they thought it would be funny (tongue twister funny) but man is it annoying.

The Airhorn Sour Patch kids commercial, it's like obnoxiously loud as if I just honked it right in the room.

Pretty much what AllosaurHell said. I never cared for modern commercials and thankfully barely see any of them because I mostly watch Youtube nowadays, but, if I must pick one recent one that annoyed me whenever it would come on, it would be the Ice Breakers commercial with the "I'm not standard. Three weeks." woman......

IDK any specific ones since I don't watch television anymore and have adblock on my computers, but I really hate Subaru's ads from the little I've seen. Presenting a car like it's somehow not just a machine, especially a skreeonking Subaru, upsets me. Car ads in general. "these savings won't last long, so hurry in" is year-round. Medication ads confuse the skreeonk out of me, who actually asks their doctor about the pill they saw on TV?

Anti-smoking ads as said before, any political ad, any alcohol commercial, and movie trailers that give away too much.

Geico's too because apparently people like them? They're just sorta-cute-funny, not even good or anything. I guess ads in general are such a horrible thing anything even somewhat mediocre can be seen as good?

In retrospect, I miss Carl's Jr/Hardee's old ad campaign with all the big tiddied models. At least it made me want what they were selling. If more ads could just have girls kissing while holding the food or whatever product suggestively, things would improve.

Also, if you watch the super bowl for the commercials, you really suck.
Drink 32oz of water a day, exercise daily for at least 30 minutes, take your meds as prescribed, eat healthy (count calories), reach out to your support network when you need them, practice basic hygiene, learn from your mistakes, forgive yourself for your failures, admit when you're wrong, be humble when you're right, be nice to animals, and try again.

so you’re all lucky you don’t have to deal with Japanese “health and beauty ads” on YouTube.

There’s this set of really skreeonked up ads, where in a CHI anime character, basically tells you you’re ugly and undateable if you have acne, are a little chubby, or don’t have a thick beard. They pressure you into buying their miracle product. Next time I get one, I’ll get the URL and post it here.

Yah, the Limu Emu from Liberty Mutual makes me ill. Thanks, LM, for actually topping Progressive's stuff, for sheer annoyance value. Quite an accomplishment, that... X_X

( Pass the barf bag ) :freak:

EDIT: My wife hates the "Don't mess with my discount!" ad. I forget whose ad that is...

I hated those god forsaken YouTube music ads they used to play a few years ago. They would play non stop and the music they choose to advertise it are grating

We can't we have more commercials like this? Then I wouldn't hate them so much. :)

Liberty Mutual ads. Pro tip: annoying the living poop out of me isn't going to make me want to get your insurance.

Also that one google shop ad that has that one kid singing loud and obnoxiously.

The Skittles-Pox ad. Two annoying, not very attractive kids in an advert that should've gone into commercial wastebasket years ago. Still keeps popping up. Especially on basic cable.
