There was a series of ads for a Toyota SUV where a smug little kid points out the shame other kids experience at the hands of their baby-boomer caricature parents who drive the wrong vehicle. Anyone who was shamed into buying one through this ad deserves to be led around by the nose.
More recently, Toyota has done an about-face of sorts, showing older kids voicing concern about their SUV-buying boomer parents who are out there in the world, doing stuff, while the kids are stuck in their social-networking non-lives. Just as offensive on its own level.

Gosh, where do I start. The worst commercials are those worthless Geico commercials. I would like to stomp on that stinking Gecko and then scrape him off my boot on the edge of the sidewalk. I can't stand that other arrogant jerk on thier commercials that sounds like he has a sock full of crap jammed down his throat.

I also hate beer commercials. They have been sickening for years. Lately Pharmeceutical commercials have taken over. Also I'm sick of these cell phone commercials with these idiots sticking a cell phone in your face. I also can't stand the airhead on the Progressive commercials. If brains were watermelons she wouldn't have enough seeds to fill a thimble.

I also hate the amount of commercials today. You watch about 7 minutes of your show and then 5 minutes on commercials. Its one of the reasons I canceled my expensive cable subscription 3 years ago.

My biggest pet peeve are THE MEDICAL COMMERCIALS, especially the Prescription Drug Commercials which feature pills dealing with various "Bodily Functions" including SEX. The Advertisers do not give a Rat's Arse about WHO is in front of the tv, as they air these abomonations Morning, Noon and Night. Parents must CRINGE whenever a program they are watching goes to a Commercial Break, as there is NO indication one of these kinds of ads is about to come on. Even Children's Shows aren't safe, as I've seen ads for "ED Pills" aired during these shows! (Which is why I no longer subscribe to a Pay-TV Service - Since the Prescription Drug Companies pay Each Cable Channel $70,000,000.00 a month to air their pills in front of the kiddies, they obviously DON'T NEED MY SUBSCRIPTION FEE - which I now use to purchase Commercial-Free TV Shows on DVD)!

I hate the prescription drug commercials too--promising ideal results, with the frightening side effects recited in cheerful voices in an attempt to minimize them. IMO, this kind of advertising should be banned. We pay for it every time we get a namebrand prescription filled.

Whsat I really hate about commercials is when they show the same one two times in a row. I feel like yelling, I HEARD YOU THE FIRST TIME.....

I hate two commercial types and they are:
-Quit smoking commercials for NY TV, usually they show gory and nasty stuff !
-Progressive Insurance commercials especially the Red Lipstick Gal irritates the hell out of me!
Actually I hate all commercials like I hate email spam all of them :-)

Prescription drug commercials that go on & on about side effects are written by lawyers. The sole purpose is to inform the public about possible side effects, including suicide risk, death, etc. even if only 1 person has ever had any of the bad reactions. Once you are informed and use the drug and get a side effect that screws you up, you cannot sue the company or a doctor because you have been warned publicly by the commercial, but chose to use the drug anyway. Same goes for magazine ads. Don't use the stupid drugs.

I expounded my hatred for this advert elsewhere, but the CheeriOs one with the kid who keeps saying "Thass for baybeez!" gets on my nerves worse than someone rubbing styrofoam together.

I know I'll get unhelpfuls for saying that, but it's NOT CUTE. It's ANNOYING.

Thankfully I have not recently seen those terrible commercials for Snickers candy bars where people who eat them are then eaten by sharks. Maybe they were pulled. Whomever approved this new low in ads needs to be fired!

Beer and truck spots during NFL football. In fact, just about anything during NFL football (except GoDaddy ads). Sometimes, football actually gets squeezed in between all the idiotic advertising.

And is there anyone who really thinks Denis Leary is a bada/s?

All truck ads are the same.

"This thing can haul a sh/tload of stuff. Buy it, and you're a bada/s."

All beer ads are the same.

"Here's some beer. Drink it, and you'll start having a good time".

Its more like if you buy it you're a duma/s.

After you drink beer you will have a great time doing sobriety tests and spending the night in the drunk tank.
