Lexus commercials. Selling a "Japanese" car with a "British" voice over.


Another is a local granite and marble place . also with a snooty "British" voice over. You are trying to sell countertops to transplanted Italians from NYC. Why?? They would be better off using Marisa Tomei from My Cousin Vinny

No offense to my Brit Pelicans...

And yeah the Liberty Mutual ones make me rage too...

Any charity that makes a ridiculous emotional appeal. The animal charities are the worst.

Yea... they really prey on all of us. The Clef Palates, Shriner's hospital, Tampons, Round Up and the list is forever going on.

What I decided on is two charities. the Salvation Army only in my community to feed the
druggies, bi-pollers, homeless because of a dozen reasons. At least they can get some food in there bellies regardless of why they hit the streets.
The other is the Navy SEAL Foundation. I was a Sailor in Vietnam and always will support those guys and the families/children of the men I witnessed first hand to be real warriors.

All Bloomberg commercials. They must have used 10-20 year old footage. In the interview with CBS, he looked terrible!

Ok agree - but gotta say love the one State Farm ( I think) where the fat millennial is trying to keep his driving safe in his Prius and at a stop light a guy rolls up in a SRT8 Challenger wants to drag race. I actually hope it comes on ....

Remember the old movie, "American Pie?" The guy in the Challenger is Chris Owen who played "The Shermanator" in that movie. BTW, I like the commercial too.

Any and all and especially those with the PC characters as shills. Just sick of them in general and find them beyond annoying. Since most of us pay for cable and/or satellite, we should be spared the constant interruption of our programming. Freaking Motor Trend is one of the worst offenders IMHO. I am even tired of recording and fast forwarding thru them.
I have completely sworn off all football because of commercials and other sporting events will likely follow. Tried to watch the last 9:58 of a ND game which took 47 minutes.

I don't watch much live TV as we DVR everything. I will even pause football games and come back every 15 minutes so I can fast forward though the commercials.

I have seen the Peloton ad and didn't really see anything wrong with it, but apparently it blew up for being patriarchal. You have to check out Ryan Reynold's ad for his Aviator Gin. Here's a link to the story with an embedded video.

Those stupid State Farm football ads with Mahomes and Rodgers. Those guys are fine, but the rest of the ad (and especially the insurance douche) are really annoying.

I don't get those Bud Light Platimum ads with the knights/midieval theme. Not clever. Not funny. Not interesting.

They're ALL annoying! The 'mute' button on my remote is almost worn out from overuse.

For a little perspective, almost 1/3 of NBC's The Today Show is commercials. There are nearly 60 minutes of ads (close to 120 individual spots) in every three-hour program
