    Most Hated/Annoying TV Commercial!

    Every morning as I get ready for work I watch KCRG in Cedar Rapids (mostly to check the weather). They run the most annoying commercial EVER everyday! Not sure if it is a local commercial or not...but it is based on Tommy Tutone's song "867-5309/Jenny". It is a Benjamin Franklin plumbing commercial that makes me run to the remote and change the channel! The "acting" is so bad and the themes are so cheesy that it must be locally made? The "actors" have to be the family of the owners of the company. Anyone seen the commercial I am referring to? As soon as that commercial comes on I change the channel to "Saved By The Bell"!

    Anyone else have a commercial that just makes you cringe?

    I freaking hate the new Geico commercials.

    My favorite commercial is the JG Wentworth, "It's my money and I need it now"! The raw emotion those people have built up is amazing.

    The "bills" commercial that runs around here. I can't even remember what it's for (which proves it's not doing its job) but it's brutal and stupid.

    She is 39? I would have lost my house on that bet! I would have thought 18 - 24? And yes...those commercials are ANNOYING!

    I love both of those commercials, ESPECIALLY the BK commerical. I hate the random fix it lady local commercial that airs during WHO Today in Iowa Saturday/Sunday...awful!

    My friend had the best line after a Billy Mays commercial: "I refuse to buy anything from someone who yells at me all the time."

    And about the $5 footlong Subway commercials, does anybody else think they are a little obscene -- especially when the little Japanese chick does the footlong gesture to Godzilla?

    Re: Most Hated/Annoying TV Commercial!

    Local retirement home commercials where the information about the retirement home is sung to a jingle - are you serious?


    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?
    Maria Sharapova: Don't you beat up other guys for a living? I don't know how to answer this.

    I don't remember what it was for, a camera or printer maybe, but the one where peole would keep putting frames around their head and would pull it off - their image would be on it. Over and over. I would have to leave the room or turn the channel. Creeped me out.
