Which TV commercials annoy your more?

I always get a kick out of the former always anticipating and wanting to guess how long the list will have to be or how much of the commercial it takes up.

The ads that most annoy me are the ones that use kids to sell their product, because apparently kids are cute.

I'm sorry, ad company, but I would have bought that brand of sausage roll, but the annoying kid made me see red whenever I see the logo.

They both bug the daylights out of me, but I'd have to say the prescription drugs. Their list of side effects makes me wonder if the cure is worse than the disease.

In any event, I voted for the first one.

I hate, hate, hate the stupid Snausages commercial with the Golden Retriever. The voiceover (for the dog) is beyond ANNOYING!!!!!!!!

"Bacon, bacon, bacon, BACON....!" GGggrrrrr..........:rant:

**Of the two options listed---the prescription drug ones.

Ambulance chasing law ads annoy the crap out of me - where is it written that because you fell down, someone owes you a ton of money?

The side-effects ones can be funny - like when they warn that sleeping pills might cause drowsiness. No. Effing. Way. REALLY??

Oh, and the bone pills for osteoporosis in post-menopausal women. Better not take them if you're pregnant, or think you might be. Um... doesn't the whole menopause thing kind of prevent the whole pregnancy thing????

:D

For the poll, I went with the law firm.

However, there is one other that annoys me more... those Time Life music collections... especially when they have songs in them from my childhood. Nothing makes a person feel old like music from your days as a kiddo being part of a Time Life collection.

I hate them equally buuuuuuuut I had to pick the prescription commercials only b/c they're usually so long. Extended torture.

I hate almost all commercials but two especially. The progressive one with that red-lipstick person and the law firm that has that horrible so-called music and spins around.

I don't see very many lawyer commercials, so I had to choose the "side-effects".

Without a doubt those damn Charmin bears (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=styCsH87qqw&feature=player_embedded). I will break my ankles rushing to change the channel to get away from those disgusting commercials.

Does a bear shit in the woods? Yes, but you don't have to make me watch them do it and use a roll of Charmin afterward. BLECCH!!! :mad:

I like the fact that the drug companies have to tell what the side effects are, I only wonder if they are telling all of them? They also ought to tell whether or not the drug works.

I also like the lawyer ones because most of them are telling which drug companies either failed in their testing for the drugs, proving that animal testing shows us nothing about the damage the drugs will do to humans, and that there are damn dangerous drugs out there your doctor doesn't mind selling to you at outragous prices that will kill you.

So yeah, I like both those ads because they keep the dangerous of supporting the profits of the drug companies in front of us.

The new St*te farm spokes guy annoys me, and I don't know why.

My bold.

LOL, that's how I feel about the show Three's Company. If I hear the theme song I take a flying leap across a room for the remote.

And the Charmin commercials suck too.

Guess I watch too much tv 'cause too much of my time is spent muting obnoxious cmmercials.

In Texas last week the CALM law was passed that makes it illegal for tv stations to turn up the sound levels on ads higher than the show themselves. Not that it has helped any....

True, the bacos ads with the stupid dog are maddening.
Not to mention the shampoo ads with the models whose hair is always glossy, shiny and straight as a board.

And those for viagra and its ilk in the middle of family viewing hours while the kids wonder what all that's about.

WHat's scary is that we remember those stupid jingles for years....

The one I hate the most is the kid selling the car. Just because it's a minivan doesn't mean you have to be lame. UGH! I want to yell at the kid you'll be in whatever car I'll tell you to be in.

I choice the lawyer option. We have some dandy ones there.

There was a law office commercial running for a while that didn't add "or loved one". It was just "If you have been injured or killed . . . " Holy crap, the lawyers will even come to your graveside!

I always wonder how you're supposed to call the lawyer or doctor if you're dead.

They're really just asking for a zombie attack. They should be more careful about what they say...

There has been a new commercial on lately for a certain prescription drug. I wouldn't mind any sort of drug - well the Smiling Bob commercials are always SO DISTURBING with their puns, especially the Christmas one D: - but this one was worse because it would come on at dinner time and the product was called COLON FLOW! :D Yeah, I want to hear about how happy colon flow makes your bathroom habits. UGH.
