    I'm getting tired of the Rock 'em Sock 'em giant robots that break out of the ring and beat up the truck or try too. I don't even know what brand of truck they are selling, but the robots annoy the heck out of me.

    I'm also over the Geico lizard or whatever. The Caveman ones are pretty funny, but the lizard is old, move on.
    I do like the Geico one with Little Richard though. That one cracks me up EVERY time I see it.

    And the Ocean Spray Cranberry guys standing in the cranberry bog annoy me as well.

    And locally there is a propensity for the local car and RV dealers to use their family members in their ads. The family members are stiff, wooden and just plain annoying. I have to mute the tv on this one as the girls have awful voices and it hurts my ears to hear it.

    i love how they still play it occasionally during the holidays.
    Peter!!!! I love that one too obviously, since I remember the son's name.

    Maikij - I haven't seen all the ads on your list, but agree with you on all of the ones that I have.

    I love Little Richard, too. All he has to do is sit there and roll his eyes and I laugh.

    We used to have this locally owned RV company that ran ads in which the owner sang a song he wrote about the company. Talk about annoying and bad.

    Are you all seeing the H&R Block commercials with the people who keep saying "I got people"? The one I hate most is the big guy sitting at the table and his wife comes in asking if he's worked on the taxes. He says "I got people", she says "You got people", and he say it again, then she says it again and I want to slap them both.

    I don't have to worry about slapping them. I got people.

    Hey, Unk, could you send your people over to slap those cavemen? I am very sick of them.

    Most TV ads annoy me. I can't stand to watch commericials so I usually channel-flip when they come on. I do the same with radio. Commercialism sucks.

    Now with that being said, this may have already been discussed since I can't be bothered to read 13 pages of posts, but there are several commercial characters that especially annoy me:

    Those two goofy Sonic idiots in the car. Very few people annoy me to the point where I want to hit them every time I see them, but those two guys do. The one guy just for being a loudmouth arrogant jerk and the other guy for being an idiot. Why does he even continue to hang out with loudmouth jerk? If anyone I knew acted like that all the time, he wouldn't be seeing me around anymore. They both get beat-downs from me.

    The Burger King mask guy creeps me out. The gold BK chain and crown and big kingly robes are bad enough, but it's that creepy permagrin that really gives me the heebs. If I woke up and rolled over and that dude was laying in bed next to me, I'd release the hound on him, then grab my baseball bat and have a kingly beatdown. That is, after I recovered from running out of the house screaming like a girl. And let's not mention that one ad where he's standing outside the house looking into the window. The sooner BK gets this creep off my TV screen, the better.

    EDIT: Good to see I'm not the only one creeped out by the Burger King mask guy.

    Really lame commercial right now is for Simply Smart milk. Where the little boy spills some milk and all of a sudden, the whole family is crying in the kitchen as if someone has just died.
    Hurley: (holding up a Jesus statue) I don't know. I thought there might be a prowler or something.

    AHAHAHA. I haven't seen that. But you reminded me of a "Milk" commercial I can't stand.. The one with the cows drinking SILK soy milk.

    Yeah, I don't like those either. Here's another cow one. It's actually for the Glad Stackables. A farmer sees a broken fence and tells his wife that the cows are out. Wife tells him that she found them and drives him to an area where we see all the cows stacked up on top of each other

    There's an ad running here for some diet plan. (The commercials so good I've imprinted the name. NOT)
    One of the women is in a blue bikini and says:

    "now I've got the smokin' hot body I've always wanted".

    I'm sorry, this annoys me. I hope that I do not know any women that refer to themselves as "smokin' hot"
    Even if I had one, I would never talk about myself as having a "smokin' hot body".

    The whole commercial is annoying because one woman at the end says her husband now calls her his trophy wife.
    Sorry, but if she's not a trophy in your eyes with a few extra pounds on her, then she doesn't need you, now that she's lost a few. It's what's inside that counts.

    Anyway, the whole commercial is just annoying as anything and kristie alley is STILL annoying me with Jenny Craig.

    (hmm, maybe should change my screen name to "Smokin' Hot". The ONLY way that describes me is during a hot flash! )
