I post my least favorite commercials here


Recommended Posts

A couple local banks have really bad commercials, they're harmless montages of dorky employees and customers shaking hands and smiling uncomfortably.  

What makes them horrific is that BOTH have chosen to featured loud, shrill, comfy-country whistling - think Andy Griffith show theme.  

It makes me want to hunt down these local TV ad hacks choke them like Homer does Bart.

Papa John's should stop spending money on ads and spend more on making better food. Their pizzas have always been trash and by many accounts they've actually gotten worse.

Not a fan of the Shaq-aroni?

I know, get off my lawn.... but I am sick of most commercials right now, mainly because of them all showing the whole "we're all in this together" BS.  We get it, everyone is doing Zoom conferences and making Tik Tok videos.  I don't need to see it in commercials.   

The Corona commercial showing a collection of "at home" videos with some dumb sappy track is the epitome of this kind of suck right now.

Corona has a lot of gall considering they were the ones that started the whole thing.

"Would you like to attend our presentation?"

"No, I'm not interested in a timeshare."

"Well this once is about protecting your gutters from leaf buildup."

"What do I wear, and can I bring my daughter? :excited:"

 

Another sold out performance for the gutter presentation guy!

I'm pretty sure that YouTube TV knows that I'm secretly gay, which is news to me, too.  Every other commercial break--and I'm not kidding--there is a commercial for Duscovy for PrEP which I have gleaned from the commercial helps keep gay guys from contracting HIV through sex.  The commercial itself isn't bad, but I swear I see it 8 times a day.  Every day.  And I suspect that advertisers have more control over targeted advertising via streaming platforms like YouTube TV.  Hence, I think they are targeting me.  Hence, I'm pretty sure that I may be secretly gay.

Every single commercial for a prescription drug is absolutely terrible.  Yeah, let's all go to a farmer's market, then fly a kite, then go for a little jog before having a meal on the beach.

I assume it’s some proven technique that distracts from the viewer totally focusing on all the negative side effects rambling that is required.  Happy imagery + over the top scenarios must make the brain not internalize negative sounds as much (or something like that)

Everything about this commercial irritates me.

There's a company in Pittsburgh that buys every ad spot during the news to push their "Gutter Helmet".  I want to punch the guy AND the cartoon squirrel that says you get a free gift card with your estimate.

In every one, the first warning they state is "Do not take xxxx if you are allergic to xxxx". 

No ####?

Yeah just noticed that, I actually think that's a new thing unless I missed it the first few years these turrible ads were out.  Obviously their legal department has required them to dumb things down to the lowest denominator.

I don't get his appeal for any acting roles whether its commercials or TV/Movies.

Any commercial where they are trying to capitalize on the mask, like showing Domino's delivery guys in masks and there are countless examples. 

Any commercial where they try and act out how we should be feeling or behaving on Zoom calls or Face Time get togethers, 🤮 

Any commercial where they try and tell us they are looking out for me...they're only looking out for me so they can bleed some more money from me. 

I'm not jaded, not the least bit

The GEICO spot (radio version, not sure if there is a TV one or not) with the goldfish singing opera could be the most annoying ever. And so damn LOUD! :hot: 

Was going to post this one a few days ago but wasn't sure if it was Geico or Progressive. Progressive has some terrible ones too where Flo has try and not talk about insurance for a few seconds and then she can't do it and blurts out something like "Save money, switch to Progressive!"

As an Indians fan, it's super annoying because Progressive has the naming rights to the former Jacobs Field.  So, every other radio spot features her or that human willow branch Jamie.

What is with all the pizza commercials talking about how the pizza doesn't get touched by anyone once it goes in the oven?  Do people actually think someone was grabbing or touching a pipping hot fresh out of the oven pizza?

And the dominos one where the guy has the "carry out" delivered to his car and pops the trunk so the kid puts it in there?  WTF?

I worked in two pizza places as a youth, these commercials drive me nuts.

Any commercial that features the Capital One guy walking thru a coffee cafe like a make believe lobby when all the BANK LOBBIES ARE CLOSED!!! And what's up with those pants/jeans, that guy should have done porn as my wife tells me every time it runs. 

Your wife is looking at the size of his Otis Mitts, not his pants.

If I were a Domino's competitor, I'd run an ad where the pizza went right from the oven to the trash with the tagline "Yeah, I wouldn't touch this pizza either."

The Gatorade one with Zion, Todd Gurley and Bryce Harper.

At the end they have Zion dunking on some $100 portable basketball hoop that you fill the base up with water to try and stabilize it.   Ummm, you couldn't find a driveway with a little something nicer for one of the most powerful dunkers in the NBA?

Why is LADodger pitcher Clayton Kershaw in a commercial where he gives up an epic home run?  He even has enough time to hop into his car and catch the massive blast in a random little league field? Seems like the writer could have come up with a better script for a commercial than that.

Was it a commercial for trash cans?

Info: "When Clayton Kershaw throws a pitch that appears to be hit out of the park, he is lucky to have Hankook Tires to help him track it down. He speeds through a country road, skirts past a hitchhiker and proves to a few kids that pitchers can indeed play defense as he makes the long catch." 

That write-up may be worse than the commercial.  So stupid.  😆

Maybe it was a playoff game....

 

And yes I've seen it.  And as a baseball, Dodger and Kershaw fan, its horrible.

I've had enough of "The New Chris Paul".

Also, Chris Paul drives a Kia and parks it outside of his mansion.

And we all realize this is Carlton from Fresh Prince, right?
