Most annoying TV commercials.....

The top three gotta be Liberty Mutual, Geico and Progressive.....the Mayhem guy is actually funny. Liberty ads get muted right away.....most times I change the channel. Jesus, we know you are out there stop shoving down our throats.

Then to round out the top ten, ANY drug commercial followed by the stupid Peloton stationary bike thingy. Yeah, right....give the fat old lady a bike that goes nowhere and see how happy she gonna be....

Chevy's hideous campaign with the metrosexual dude was the worst. I actually like some of the Flo commercials, like the ones where she visits her twin sister.

Add National Rental Car to that list. Can't stand the actor in that ad. Hit the mute
button every time it comes on.

Ah. Patrick Warburton. aka "David Puddy" from Seinfeld TV series fame. As far as I can tell, he's the only ex-Seinfeld actor/actress that is still making a living portraying the same actor he was on the show years ago, so he must have had some type of negotiation skills with Jerry. That's what I find amusing about those ads.

This is why I stopped watching commercial TV more than 10 years ago.

I only use my TV for movies and occasionally YouTube through my media player.

Agree with the Liberty Mutual and Matthew McWhoever Lincoln ads (very annoying) but kinda like Geico and Flo. Also sick of Joe Namath with his Medicare ads..."it's free"! ...always mute him.

I'll 2nd you on the Peloton ads. They are pushing the thing hard this year...both on TV and radio/audio streaming services.

I've been watching a lot of Pluto, and to me their issue is they play the same commercials over and over again, sometimes back to back.

So my nomination goes to Brittany M on the VW "We Sign Off" commercial,
"I've been traaaaiined to notice things most human eyes don't see."

I guess she wasn't working there in 2014, saw a new Passat in the showroom, the whole rear driver's side door was orange peel.

I like Flo from Progressive. Geico and Liberty Mutual are meh but not overly annoying.

Annoying commercials:
-ANYTHING that gets repeated over and over during 1 hour! The more I see your commercial, the less I want to support your business.
-Companies trying to convince you that you need to hire a lawyer (ie: medical, Roundup users or other class action lawsuits).
-The cancer care centers (don't ask me why, to me they are just depressing).
-Companies that want to help you to NOT pay your debt or your taxes. "I owed 4 bazillion dollars but only paid eight fifty"... They encourage you to be a deadbeat.
