    Is there a commercial that you hate so much that you won't buy the product because of it?

    I pretty much hate all the Geico commercials with this guy in it:

  4. I hate the ones where the same person is on different commercials suffering from different diseases as well as the same old bitch, who has been around for years and always works for America's rottenest corporations.

    Here is an example.

    Starts out. Happy guy and "body at rest stays at rest" and then his latest commercial where his wife has a brain tumor or something like that.

    Whoever thought of the idea for this commercial should be shot, i posted about this over a year ago when i first saw it. Its nice that they dont play it much anymore, but i remember when they were playing this commercial on CNBC every single set of commercials, all of a sudden you would hear a pig squealing with this obnoxious tone, and i was hearing it 10 times per day.

    These are the only 2 commercials that I saw, and actually checked out the product right after. The second one with Kenny Powers is hilarious, and i cant believe K-Swiss went along with that ad. Baron if you like the second commercial you should check out the series "East Bound and Down" if you havent already seen it.

    Oh, and those annoying ETrade commercials with the baby. Wish they'd return to the creative past:

    from 1999 Super Bowl:

  8. Progressive insurance. That woman is beyond annoying.

    Yeah, pretty much ALL of them. I never buy anything because I saw a commercial, got a spam email or telephone solicitation.

    While you do occasionally see an ad that's entertaining; I've despised all advertising since I was a kid.

    I forgot about Progressive woman. Yeah, she's even more annoying than the Geico guy for sure.
