Ads about erectile disfunction, or pad absorbency really turn me off, and I do hit the mute button.

I always mute the tv when commercials come on. I can't stand commercials.

the Joe Boxer one that had the guys shaking the balls as though ther were jingle bells though I am happy they finally put men in the undergarments on TV, somthing they have no problem doing with scantilly clad women on other commercials.

I hate these. I wonder if they actually get more money on them or if they lose money because people are so turned off. I actually change the station when the sad ads come on, I don't want to see the unfortunate and unhappy animals.
