  • Commericals that make you want to boycott products!

    Do you ever hate a commercial so much that you boycott the product because of it. Mine, in no particular order are:

    1) The Taco Bell commericals where the guy is singing the Bonanza theme.
    2) Any Subway commerical with Jared. Someone needs to shove a lowfat sub up his rear.
    3) Anything with an annoying little jingle that gets in your head.
    4) Any commercial by Old Navy.
    5) But the worst all time commericals are definitely a tie between any of the 1-800-CALLATT ads or the MCI 20 minutes for a buck ads. Stupid phone companies.

    Anything with Carrot Top (AT&T ads).

    Anything with an annoying jingle (they have the opposite effect on me. I remember them, but it reminds me not to buy the stuff).

    The new Mitsubishi commercials with nothing but weird techno music, and nitwits dancing in the car.

    Any commercial that ends with me going "WTF was that about?"

      I can't stand the young guy who does the Dell computer ads.

        I hated the Zenith ad and wrote to the company about it. They told me that the young men in the commercial were supposed to be watching a zenith TV where beautiful women were swimming so beautifully, it put the young men in a trance and actually splashed water on the young men in the crotch of their pants. I told them they could SAY whatever they wanted but I thought the commercial was disgusting. I was recently written by them to tell me they pulled the commercial.
        Another one I just wrote is a Midas commercial. They are talking about all the things Midas could do for cars and a little old lady strips down to her waist (back view only) and says, "Oh yea, well what can you do with these?" I thought it was an insult to women. Haven't heard anything yet.

            I tape TV programs and fast forward through the commercials.
            Do not walk ahead of me, for I may not follow; do not walk behind me, for I may not lead; do not walk beside me; in fact, get the hell away from me.

              Ricola, or Mentos ads make me want to scream.

                The all time most stupid commercial that makes me want to hurt the guy in it, is the one where the postman is prancing around in the rain to the background music of "Dada dada dada dada dat da, dada dada dada dada da" , while he delivers the mail, all the while looking so happy I could choke him.

                I hate that commercial so much that I block out what it is they are advertising. I don't know what it is they are selling.

                  I think it's a Disney World commercial...and yes, I agree that someone needs to take a baseball bat to that postman.

                    I found out Jared Fogle is a distant cousin of mine.

                    That and a few bucks will buy me a sandwich at Subway.

                    Those stupid ads Target runs at Christmas time get on my nerves! Like the Chinese water torture!

                        I think Jared is kinda cute actually :P

                        I hate those cheesy carpet and RV sales commercials.

                        There is also this one commercial that came on while I was eating dinner.. It was for some sort of itch creme and showed old people scratching away at gross looking skin. Needless to say, I lost my appetite.

                          I LOVE that commercial! We irritate each other all nite at work with that...I love the Mitsubishi one with the music, too. And yeah i think Jared is ok...LOVE the Dell kid, just saw him on the Tonight Show LOL. I like the music in the Target and Old Navy ads. (God i hate to sound like such a happy person! )

                          The ones i dont like are the 1-800-AlarmMe...and i didnt like the ones where the girl caught the Doritos in her mouth and flipped around like a trained dolphin...tho i know all the guys loved it...

                          The best one around this area is for some Cable TV company... it's the clerk in the dollar store and the guy asking the price of everything...got us all saying "for YOU...a dollar!"

                            I notice you did not include the 1800 COLLECT commercials. Alyissa Malino has that effect on me too!!

                              Mentos. The FRESHMAKER!

                              Yeah..watch me kick your fresh made butt all over town.

                              Carrot Top.

                              I don't carry my "big glock" for nothing. Who KNOWS when i'll run into him?!

                              I DO like the Dell dude though.

                              I also liked the old VW commercial with the two guys driving and the backround music that goes " DA! DA! DA!"
