Tom Steyer with the jacked up eyebrows talking right at the camera... what a d-bag. He gets the channel change Back button ASAP when his ads come on.

Joe Namath pimping Medicare supplemental insurance. Yeah right. He called to find out what benefits he was missing out on.

Peloton is sucking hard. They got sued for unauthorized use of music. Had to kill off half of their pre recorded workouts. Comments like “crappy 80s disco crap” are being posted on social media.

Here’s a thought. Buy a real bike. Ears buds and Pandora.

By far the most annoying commercials are the ones from walmart or amazon, perhaps both, that have the sound of a doorbell in them. No telling how many elderly people have met their demise trying to get to the front door when those come on.

Chevy's whole line of adds that tout their industry awards are way too meterosexual to me. I realize old farts like us are set in our ways, and already have brand preference (Ford for me), but it worries me that the young are so wishy-washy and undecided to take these adds seriously.

I have never been sold a single thing, I may choose to buy something after researching, but to walk in undecided/unprepared goes against everything I know.

Agree with most - The drug commercials are my choice especially when the list of side affects is longer than their benifits.

This entire thread make me so happy to have my Tivo. I record every show, and watch it later. On many of the shows I there is a commercial skip feature. I press one button, and bing, the show is starting again. No commercials at all. Often I have to do that manually, and just fast forward and then back up if I went to far. In the digital world, that only takes a few seconds.

I can honestly say, I have not seen one of the commercials mentioned in the thread.

There's not a single ad mentioned here that I don't find annoying. They must do it on purpose. That woman on the Progressive ads ought to be retiring or dying of old age or something soon.

Watching the NFC Championship game. Just showed the Chevy truck commercial where the truck looker gets taken by helicopter to try out a pick-up. Yeah right.
Chevy/GMC would be better off doing no commercials.
