    The new Sprint commercial with the people on the treadmills. HORRIBLE acting!

    Yeah, who is that guy on the phone to Turbo Tax anyway? I may hate the commercial, but I've been using Turbo Tax since it was on big floppies, pre-Windows.

    TV on in the background, not paying much attention until the last word of a commercial was ENDLESSIER. Really? One cannot qualify the word, endless, as it is already in its ultimate state. I hope I never hear or see that commercial again!

    There's this one for AT&T where a family is at the A&T store with 4 young children that are running around and causing a big nuisance. Too real for those of us who can't stand out-of-control kids. At the same time it's amusing because - since it's a commercial - the kids are doing everything but disturbing the store displays & merchandise, and anyone who's seen kids in a store knows that those would be the first thing to go.

    We saw the "Big Night for Joel" commercial for Chex Mix yesterday. So horrendously offensive that I actually fired off a complaint to General Mills. When I tried to look it up on Google, several other sites had comments about it, too . . . and not ONE of them was positive.

    Dear General Mills: You blew it. Throw that one in the trash and start over fresh with something not tacky and offensive.

    Actually, I find it more stupid than offensive.

    The Cheerios commercials with the jingle "good goes around" before he goes into the "good goes around" I can't understand what the h*ll he's saying! The style of singing is annoying.
