Damn, those are so annoying.
Not as bad as the adverts for crippling loans full of fat people talking about their new conservatory.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Kia commercials. They go something like this:

The best car in its class [insert obvious propaganda] is:

A. The Brand New Kia Optima
B. The Spanking new Kia Optima
C. The Shiny New Kia Optima
D. All of the above

That's right! Its D!!! The Kia Optima... [insert useless financial facts]

---------

I mean COME ON! My 8 year old sister can write something better than that crap!

We have a couple here in Phoenix for a car dealership. Dealership commercials are never that great, but there's one in particular that's especially annoying, because of the spokeswoman standing and talking. Her voice is high and screechy, and she maintains this horrendously annoying expression on her face. Her eyes squint and she's always grinning too widely. She's not ugly or anything, but incredibly annoying. And they dress her up. They did something and related it to baseball, and she had a hat on and that black stuff under her eyes. It at the very least doubled the annoyance level. If I could remember which dealership it was for, I would intentionally avoid them because of their craptastic commercials.

I hate 90% of commercials to begin with. I overanalyze them, and they end up pissing me off for being stupid...

Any ads for companies trying to sell ring tones. it started with Jamster trying to shove that god forsaken Crazy frog down our throats now you can't watch a Cable TV ad break with out one of the companies telling us our current ring tone is out of date and we should update to one of those brand new tones featuring crappy top 40 music or bad impersinations of Simpsons characters.

I COMPLETELY AGREE! They piss me off so much, these commercials. Or the ones about getting a joke every day or love advice or some crap. Ever read the fineprint? A dollar a day! $30 a month to get "if u kiss her clothes ur eyes lol" texted to you every 10 minutes (At least, that's what I'm guessing it's like). It's a joke, and annoying to have to sit through the commercials.

What about those joke of the day commercial? "These are hilarious"

And it has a bunch of animated people looking at there phone and laughing.

If they are not even going to give me an exampling at these "hilarious jokes", then why would you trust them to be funny.

Hell, they might not even send you jokes. They might just send you stock info, but that can be funny  ;)

I do that too, lol

I can't, not listen to them. I have to make a comment

Did I mention American Airlines? There's a poorly drawn cartoon guy sitting in a plane, then he goes off and does some random crap and gets back on a plane. Then the logo comes up, "No matter where life takes you, we'll help you get there"

Terrible background music? Check
****ty animation? Check
Completely nonsensical progression of events? Check
Retarded gimmick? Double check

There's a local lawyer commercial that is often parodied in school. Even 9 year olds parody it because its so easy to.

<enter laywer with screen full of numbers>

<unnatural monotone>

Hi, I'm Peter Francis Geraci.

Hmm... This youtube does a better job. Not quite as bad as the originals though. Think cheaper, blander, and more monotone.

Chicago is also the center of cheesy local commercials. From "Save big money at Menards!" (jingle) to Bob Rooooooooorhman Chevrolet to 5-8-8 2 300 EMPIRE!!!
