    I can think of a lot of them. Here are some:

    Liberty Mutual Insurance. Blimey! Here we have smug millennials lecturing the rest of us how we should not expect to drive 3/4 of an automobile. Slyly telling us how no, he didn't pick the wrong insurance coverage. He picked the wrong insurer. Then a gal tells us she named her car Brad. SHE LOVED BRAD. The came the accident (probably while texting).

    All home security systems commercials. Is there a law that says that all home thieves and burglars have to be white men? Some diversity would be welcomed, blokes.

    Oh, one more, maybe more: The Chevy commercials where non-actors are told what accolades the Chevy vehicles have won, such as from JD Powers and Annie's List. And more and more Chevy cars are introduced in elevators. Some of the informed quotes by the non-actors, without test-driving the cars or reading up on them:
    "Impressive!"
    "They just keep coming and coming!"
    "Now I gotta go buy me a Chevy."
    (Obviously the creme de la creme of American consumers.)

    And here is one for Trouty: Idiots walk into a bar. A beautiful girl bartender is looking down at the clientele of schmucks who obviously like Bud Lite, Coors, Miller Lite. Oh, the horror! Then walks in a male model type who looks smugly at the girl barkeep and says, "Samuel Adams." She arches a brow. Knows this is her kind of guy and places a Sam Adams religiously in front of him. Her faith in mankind is restored and I retch and promise myself to boycott Sam Adams forever.

    Any commercials you love to hate?

    @GimmeTheBall!

    For me it's the Cellino and Barnes commercials. A local ambulance chaser out here in SoCal. They infest the radio and television with this horrid song of their's that invades my brain like an Amazonian water parasite. At first I used to sing their little jingle, but now it's on the radio/tv CONSTANTLY.

    I'd say it's a toss up between:

    JG WENTWORTH! 877-cash-now!

    Or

    "I have fallen and I can't get up!" life alert ads...

    1800 Cars for Kids both radio and TV versions. I'm sure they know it's the worst jingle ever but they've kept it all these years cause it sticks in your head for hours. :mad:

    "I use FLIPP"... and it's free.

    The checkout girl touches the screen like it does something. When it doesn't. It's merely showing a circular and you need to slide your finger around to view the circular page.

    Very goofy. The husband and wife reaction at the end. There are two different endings to commercial.

    Bingo, I hate those commercials. Have you seen the ones with the hot blond bragging about the viagra "single packs" and she's so glad her guy always carries them? I don't need them...yet, but darn, talk about getting in people's heads...

    Isnt it funny when drugs are sold and it takes longer to describe the side affects than why we should take it? It makes me laugh and feel sorry for the people taking the bait at the same time.
