What kind of commercials do you wish werent on tv?

Like which ones make you feel uncomfortable or you would just rather not see cuz they are so annoying?


For me, IDK if its national-wide and I dont remember the name, but theres this commerical for a diet pill and literally all it is is two people half dressed making out and then some lady at the end says "Its Great to be Thin!" Its so annoying plus it totally playing out the whole "sex sells" thing as well as setting out some subtle self esteem killers.

  • I hate commercials period. They don't make me want to buy things, or eat there or go there. That's why I love DVR we always FF through them.

  • The male enhancement commercials. I always look at the actors and think, wow, so talentless and desperate you can't even get hired to do porn and had to do this instead.

  • That commercial advertising shoes that tone your backside...all they show are women's backsides, and they are gorgeous, and my husband, well, noticed...Made me mad cause I lost all of this weight, and I look fab, but unless I get a nip tuck, I can't compete with that! Makes me sick. Makes me JEALOUS.
