@momtochloe, my husband just saw the commercial, and it's an Aldi commercial that made us laugh.

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

That would be my choice too!!  There is something so creepy about the children's squeeky voices coming out of those silly adults!!  Now l like those gummy bears...especially the green ones....but that commercial is dreadful!!!

That 'human growth hormone' commercial is still driving some of us n*tts.  Who would want to increase the hormones in our pituitary gland by 600+ percent?   Unless diagnosed by a experienced endocrine specialist/doc, why would we take this supplement?   Nothing to fool around with, imo, and several of our friends.

Yes, that gummie bear commercial could be counter-productive.  Well, maybe the kiddies like it and are demanding their moms to buy them.............Could be........

The "rockin" VW commercial---crude!

KFC commercials---let the original Colonel rest in peace--these new colones are downright creepy

Gummy Bears-adults with kids voices (but I do like the candy)..........

 

AT&T/Spectrum------DOWNRIGHT BORING!-ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

 

 

All the car dealerships and lawyer and of course the pharmaucuetical commercials for the reasons everyone has already stated.....

Another one I forgot that stupid car commercial where the kid in a big wheel races a car going down the street and just as the car pulls in the driveway the kid spins out in the driveway and knocks over buckets of black paint on the pristine driveway....I hope that commercial doesnt give any kids any ideas.....looks like it would be a dangerous situation just waiting to happen................

Spurt:  Yes, I saw that commercial just yesterday.  What kind of advertising people are being hired now-a-days?  Bad example for kids to watch, that's for sure.  And, of course, some parents don't even tell their kids that it's a very bad, dangerous idea and all..............

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

Spurt (again):  Oh, wait.  That's the one where the child is racing in his mini whatever along side of his parent who's racing down the street in a car.  Then both of them take a fast left onto their driveway.  OMGosh.............I can't imagine what would happen if a child copies doing what is done in this commercial.
