I also don't like the prescription commercials.  By the time they finish with the negatives, the cautions, I figure the complications are worse than the disease.  And the line "tell your doctor of  all the meds you are taking."  Geez I think my doctor who prescribed them knows.  There should be a law peddling  meds to the general public via tv and leave it up to the doctors.

Their parting line? "Enjoy the Go."


That is like the worst product slogan of all time.


Yes, it's beyond horrible.

That's the thing that gets me!  99% of the time I have no clue who the sponsor is of the commercials that are the most annoying.  They never make a point.  They seem, more often than not, to just be  going after the lowest common denominator.  Do they think those people are 'getting' what they're supposed to run out and buy?

 

I guess this stuff is tested so maybe they do work. But, for me, few commercials make any relevant point as to what they are selling.  Definitely ad money wasted.

A quick channel changer for me is that Haribu gummy bears commercial with the adults sounding like children.

Every one of the Allstate commercials with the Mayhem guy.  I am very bothered by all of the destruction that occurs.

Re: Time for a new "worst commercial on TV" thead?

There are several Viagra commercials, each featuring a different woman. At the end of each one, the woman is sprawled out on a bed, which appears to be in a hotel room, and says seductively, "Ask your doctor about Viagra Single Packs." Cringe-worthy...

The Allstate commercial  with the guy going to the health spa...and making all those faces and sounds with each treatment....I HATE It.  It is just annoying!
