    Worst commercials on TV

    What are some of your least favorite TV commercial. I have a top three:

    I have to give my vote in for No. 1 least favorite to the Pacific Life commercials. What do whales have to do with life insurance, other than they probably need it? So you want to associated your company with a species that is slowly growing extinct?

    Then they have this one commercial where the whales appear to be slam dancing to some funky music? Slam dancing, funky music, whales. Yup, that spells life insurance to me.

    I have to give the new Burger King commercials, the ones with the Simon and Garfunkle wannabes singing sappy ballads to cheeseburgers, a close second for annoyance. The more I see them, the more annoyed I get.

    The only reason Pacific Life is No. 1 for me is because I haven't seen the stupid Burger King ones enough to get truly annoyed.

    No. 3 is the saved by the O commercials. I don't even know what product they advertise, because I switch the channel every time I hear the stupid "saved by the O" music.

    Re: Worst commercials on TV

    I like the dumb singing Burger King commercials. I know a lot of people that hate them and a lot of people that basically hate Burger King's advertising in general (Wake up with the king, Hootie singing that super bowl commercial, etc.)

    What I really hate are the negative campaign ads. 2 more days folks.

    Re: Worst commercials on TV

    I hate all commercials...that is why I fast foward through them.

    During games where I have to watch them, I use that time to read CF.

    Any commercial selling crap but uses buzz words to make it sound amazing. i.e. "Nano-technology" "Micro-fibers" etc.

    I think this may have been the last whale Pacific Life used in it's commercials.
