Are there commercials that make you not want to purchase a product or service?

For me the Travelocity ad with the family on the beach is just so annoying I won't use their service. Do you have any that bother you that much?

  • Yes. LOL. I often see commercials for products that make me go "Wow now I'm even LESS likely to buy that!" But I can't pinpoint any specific commercial off the top of my head right now.

  • Years ago Quiznos came out with an ad that looked like singing mutant rats, and I haven't wanted to eat there since. They always have the worst commercials!

  • I thought of another... that one where the guy lays the cell phone on the table with the picture of the spider on it and the other guy beats the crap out of the phone, all while the lady is deathly screaming. It makes me want to smack the crap out of her.
