The worst commercial.

[ Edited ]

There’s a commercial for Haribo Gummies, a candy. It’s the stupidest and most annoying commercial I’ve ever seen. Grown men and women in corporate attire are sitting at a long table in a boardroom;  talking in toddler talk about the gummies. The theme music is even more insufferable than the dialog.

Maybe they are targeting a different age group.....

 

 

 

(Yes, I have seen the silly commercial many times--it is a few years old!  Whatever works in advertising goes--and the commercial caught YOUR attention to remember the product!)

I imagine they think kids will find it funny.  tHeyve played the same commercial periodically for several years.

 

My nomination for dumbest commercials are those for the auto insurance with Doug and the emu.  They don't even make sense.

I find most commercials useless and an annoying interruption.  They provide no information about the product other than to make one laugh.  They are an insult to intelligent adults.

The newest one I've seen that ranks right up there as the worst is a commercial for a new I U D and the women and men are dancing in the street waving their arms and singing.

I enjoy this old Hasbro commercial; and I particularly like the insurance commercials (don't know name as I'd never switch from USAA) that feature "Mayhem". The actor that stars in this long running commercial gets $1750 each and every time they run!

The Honey Bunches of Oats commercial drives me crazy because I can't get the song out of my head and they play it every commercial break on TLC and I don't even like this cereal. Lol

I agree that the Haribo commerical with the adults talking like toddlers and the Doug and Emu from Liberty Mutual commercials are the dumbest ones around.  I can't get to the mute button quick enough!

Many ads are just insufferable, but the Mayhem ads are disturbing....glad that we have control to ignore.

I just laugh at that one.  I think it's cute.
