    This commercial:



    Has been airing lately and it plays over and over in my head and I CAN'T GET IT OUT. What's worse is this has to be a huge ginormous scam. And, I have absolutely zero need for the product. I mean zero.

    FOCUS: Ads that get stuck in your head.
    ALT FOCUS: Ads that make you want to reach through the TV/radio and strangle the person who made them (for any reason).

    I will forever hold a special place in my heart for the hate that continuously burns into my soul caused by the hands of JG Wentworth. It's your money and you need it now? Fuck you.

    Is it just my imagination, or is the girl in that commercial the same one in the gazelle.com commercials? (another annoying ad campaign; hell, I don't even have an I-phone!)



    She's pretty cute, but the commercials are annoying as hell.

    This immediately comes to mind.



    I don't even know what it's for.

    I can't stand any of the Geico commercials. The gecko is adorable. But the rhetorical question commercials are overplayed, as are the easy way to save ones, and the purposely shitty ones are stupid Mainly because I get this song stuck in my head:

    I'd be in the camp of not being able to stand most of the Geico commercials, but this one is just hysterical for some reason.
    Spoiler'd for size.

    People my age repressed this commercial like being raped by their own parents. Allow me to revive it, Jason-like:

    There's a pretty good possibility that a serious misunderstanding will occur today when I tell someone at work to quit chuckin' my wood.

    This gets stuck in my head and will never stop. It doesn't annoy me as much as I will continue screaming DISCOUNT DOUBLE CHECK for hours after the commercial has aired. Forget trying to be around me on Sundays when I'm watching football.

    Name, phone number, and service all wrapped up into one catchy jingle that's repeated 8000 times in one ad. Brilliant, I suppose. Please get out of my head though.

    Guuhhhh in Cincinnati we have a knack for having the shittiest and most mind numbingly retarded commercials for our WEATHER FORECASTERS. The whole damn "SHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH.....He's coming", campaign when Steve Horstmeyer changed from channel 9 to 19. Not only was it latently, unintentionally sexual, but also brain dead stupid SHHHH standing for SH, STEVE HORSTMEYER. I felt like I was in a Terry Gilliam movie, low on sleep the surrealistic moments yelling about Steve Horstmeyer and Derek "Said it would be like this" Beasly at my roommates girlfriend when ever she opened her fat gob.





    Still fuck the hell out of the girl in the second video.

    This fucking commercial. Every time I hear it my ears want to explode and then I can't get the fucking thing out of my head. It's in there now just from getting the link to post it. God I hate that song.

    Any Texas Lottery commercial deserves to be in this thread. I think the worst ones are the radio spots; I don't watch much TV, but I always have the radio playing in my shop, so that's what I'm exposed to.
    A few years ago they started this whole "elephant" ad campaign, using an elephant as the mascot to imply how big the prizes were.

    Anyway, they would play this same commercial during EVERY commercial break on my favorite rock station. One night I was hanging out at my shop with a friend, and we decided to make a drinking game out of it: Every time that commercial came on, we'd drink. As you can imagine, we were plastered within the hour.

    Not sure if this is a national ad, but I'm sure anyone in the NYC area can agree that this is the most aggravating radio ad in existence.

    The Beef folks sure got a lot of mileage out of Aaron Copland.



    I'm sure I'm not the only one who thinks they need to update it.......with ELP, of course.

    This times a fucking thousand, if i ever see that little shit I am not sure i will be able to contain the irresistible urge to issue him a grisly death, one that's so utterly vile that you would think that the dark ages had come back in style... either that or you were teleported into Scootah's basement.

    This commercial makes me spit bile every time. The guy is obviously pulling the people in two different directions.


    Also, here's another Education Connection commercial featuring Shannon Doherty. My, how the mighty have fallen.
