What commercials make you turn the channel,as soon as they come on?

For me, it has to be ANYTHING having to do with "male enhancement." I CANNOT stand those "smilin bob" commercials! UGH! And, anything to do with "genital herpes." If I were an actress, I don't care if I had to live under the freeway off-ramp, I would not lower myself to be associated with being in a genital herpes commercial. Oh,and I can't tolerate those new McDonald's commercials,either. SO annoying! I'm sure I'll think of some more later,but for now, that's my rant.

  • That one about the girl who lost the weight and can play football, she makes me cringe. Also there is one that I saw recently and fortunately got it off before it had played the whole thing - it was grotesque- I even sent an email to the station and complained, and didn't hear back from the station. But I told them I wouldn't be watching their channel for a while- History International. The ad was by some animal protection group (and more power to them, really, but I don't want to have animal abuse shoved in my face) and showed animals actively being abused- it was horrible and I won't describe it because there is no point upsetting you all.

  • I don't blame you. That sounds like one I'd of complained about too! I know what you mean. ANY of those about weight loss are so unrealistic, it's ridiculous. Like using their diet is going to make us all look like an airbrushed supermodel! Absurd.

  • there are a few i hate.. .but in the past couple months.. almost all commercials annoy me and i just use my dvr for everything. i'll dvr something, switch channels then go back adn forth or do something for a while then i can watch it without commercials when it's convenient for me.

  • None, I didn't know people did that. I just sit through them, they are at most a minute and I don't want to miss my show when if comes back on... Plus, I don't have a remote, I would have to get up and go change it.

  • haha lilmama are you in Alaska?! cause i use to live there & those commercials are ingrained in my head forever!! along with the Mattress man's dance...

    here in OK we have the most annoying commercial ever. all it is is the owner of Edmond Hyundai saying Edmond Hyundai to the tune of "the Flight of the Bumblebee". and its a little off key.

    i also can not stand the Subway commercials w/ the stupid chic "rapping" the $5 footlong song ...THATS NOT A TALENT (i scream that at the TV everytime). also, the man who sings the song all drawn out & claps...he's AWFUL! i dont understand why they didnt have the Gospel choir or the women's group do the long commercials...dumb!
