C'mon...the hair-loss one?! That one is awesome! "Now when I run, my hair goes with me"..."My tennis game has really improved...it just feels like I'm always acing the guy"
Definitely a classic :-D


Nah, I'm talking about the ones where something totally unrelated is going on and then somebody says, "I've got good news. I just saved money on my car insurance by switching to Geico."

I don't know, maybe it's not Geico, but it's some insurance company.

I agree with the tampon ones and the viagra,enerx, etc one. But what I really hate is the showtime and Directv ads for new movies shown on channel 100-199 or whatever. Oh and the Kiz Bop commecials are pretty annoying.

Agreed. ;-D

Amen. They should pay for it with...Monopoly money. ;-7

I hate the new AM-PM commercials...so strange. I like the new Burger King ones though..."Two more buns in here...wanna kiss 'em?"

Edit: Ethan...that was his name.

I would have to say that Bank One commercial with the lady making dumb comments on everybody's card is up there on the annoying meter.

I'm with you on that one! Who's really that excited about that? Shut up and swipe my frickin card so I can be on my way!!!

I gotta give a shout out to every last one of the Cell Phone ads. I don't care which one, they ALL need to go! Nextel, Cingular, US Cellular, Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint. They all annoy me to no end. Its like they follow the same formula; they show a person who's terribly inconvenienced by their cell provider and are doing something totally outrageous to get by, enter celebrity/annoying pitch man here that will explain how great their service is and the people look at them like they just solved all of life's mysteries! Please. :-t

Also this might be more regional but the new Qwest ads are pretty stupid. Basically people are getting all excited when their phone bill comes in the mail. Man if these people are excited about that what happens when their mortgage comes?!?!

I second (or third rather) that GD bank one commercial. That woman just gets under my skin and, how shall I put this, she's....fugly and shouldn't be on tv.

I'm going to add the New York Times commercials to my list. In fact they should probably be #1 on it. Don't know how many people get to see them because they're another YES network ad but I can't stand them.
