LOL! I was watching a college football game, and an ad came on for stress-relief tablets. And a couple of gals commented on how the tablets made them "feel calm." The FDA has no idea what the tablets do. There is no mention of ingredients or how they work. I have no idea why someone would buy those tablets.

There is a commercial for Pork.

The background "music" I use the term quiet loosely. Is forks, knives and spoons banging together.

And then then there is the woman "singing" again using the term loosely. Doo Doo Doo Doo Mmm mmmm mmmm

I positively despise that commercial

Made it to my maintenance weight of 125 pounds.

Even though I have reached goal. I still don't know everything about weight loss.

I was watching an old b/w "Perry Mason," and the Zvelt diet patch commercial came on a few times. A person puts on a blue patch every so often and the weight just magically melts away. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm....I tried reading reviews of the product from actual consumers and not people involved with the marketing. There were far more negative reviews than positives. But if just wearing a diet patch would keep weight off, I think more health professionals not connected with the marketing of the product would let their patients know about it.

I am often surprised how ads making violence (or the threat of violence) humorous in order to sell products. Example: The Hopper ad for Dish TV. A man holds a ball bat over another man's head and is about to bash him with it. That makes one think of some scenes from movies/books about mob killings, etc.

And there is an ad where a woman tells some mobsters that she has to block their show on her TV for the sake of her children; it involves making humorous the fact that the characters killed someone.

{I know. I watch too much TV -- but in my defense, I often watch while spinning on my exercise bike, and I usually have the TV on the Computer Stand on while I am messing around on the Internet or with graphics.}

I'm realizing that I am not the only one getting dang tired of Progressive commercials.
=======
Ads that feature "celebrities," who are not successful any more as far as singing or acting or in athletics, endorsing some worthless company or product as if they really believe the crap they are saying, such as Debbie Boone endorsing some "youthful look" product or Robert Wagner endorsing reverse mortgages, as if he really needed any money.

I can't remember what it is for but everytime it starts, I change the station. I know that it is an ad to get people to stop smoking. The man is in a wheelchair and keeps coughing and coughing and wheezing and cant catch his breath because he has destroyed his lungs by smoking.

I often wonder if the Ad Men for the pharmaceutical commercials are stressed out Insomniacs, with Erectile Dysfunction, who are Depressed about not meeting their sales quota.

now....I never saw this one for MySky from 2009...but I love it emoticon

Everyone has listed great commercials. I'd like to ad to the list the camel over the hump day. So annoying.

Watching TV last night, an ad came on that made me think about what is rather irritating to me about some ads: namely, I detest most ads that take songs, usually from quite a while back, and either keep the tune and change the lyrics or just use the lyrics and "ruin" the song because of the activity taking place in the commercial.

One from a long time ago that some people thought was cute but absolutely irritated me was the dancing grapes to the song "I Heard if through the Grapevine." Another one was the Sunkist ad to the tune of the Beachboys' "Good Vibrations." Too, one that really annoyed me was the Diet Pepsi commercial which featured footage from the movie "Easy Rider" and the music of Steppenwolf's "Born to Be Wild."

I also do not like the animal cruelty ads, endless cell phone ads (am I the first one on that?), and the Microsoft ones where the meeting turns into some kind of laptop spinning, tossing, dancing event. Also ads for selling your old cell phone, and the "food porn" ads for peppermint patty and the "maturity" ads for CheezIts. And also the snickers ads where people aren't themselves until they eat a snickers, instead they are Robin Williams or whoever. And that annoying woman peddling light & fit Greek yogurt without sacrificing your hair cut.

The Xfinity commercials! The commercials themselves aren't so bad, but they have them on so often, I'm sick of them!

1.those stupid "truth" commercials..People are who people are and advertising your stupid want to be "statistics" about smoking doesn't really make someone stop..People are going to buy them regardless of what you claim is in them or what they do. Its a life choice people make and it annoys me that ppl are pushed to quit because of statistics.. don't you think they are well aware of the risks of it? let them quit on their own stop trying to push your beliefs or facts on people!

2. that darn 20 minute addidas commercial or the "keys,phone, gum" commercial that makes NO SENSE.

3. those ad's on the homeless animals or animal cruelty (only because it makes me sob because I am such an animal lover and the thought of an abused animal enrages me!)

I absolutely hate the commercial with the 2 older people getting their new Swifter mop. Not that I have anything against older people, but they play the commercial over and over and over, and frankly, it is getting on my nerves.

Those ads that show really skinny, pretty models holding one little piece of chocolate or one small cup of chocolate pudding and acting as if they are eating a whole sack or a quart of it. As if that would really be the most enjoyable eating activity of their week.
============

PTREE15: Yes, there are certain past sporting events that sort of make it difficult for me to even watch any video of -- I usually change the channel, and fast. Things like a golfer missing a putt to record a 58 or Smarty Jones getting edged out of the Triple Crown or The Giants' receiver catching a ball and pinning it against his helmet with one hand as Manning almost gets sacked, or my favorite college football team missing a FG that would have won a national championship or Butler missing a shot that would have upset Duke. Oh, well, for every unhappy fan one place there is a happy fan somewhere else. Such is the way of sports!

I agree with TCanno. I watch the USA Network all the time and they advertise their dumb shows more than once an hour.

I have been tempted to write to them and say. No one cares about your dumb USA Network shows. All anyone wants to see is Law and Order SVU and NCIS

ALBERTJON: Oh, those two losses to the Giants still hurt! I wore black, too.
Actually, I don't loathe the Cali teams as much as I loathe the Knicks and most NY teams :D. I have some sympathy for the Islanders because they've been so bad for a while. Those fans have it rough.

We don't get many ads as we mostly watch public television-Nova, Masterpiece Theatre. Downton Abbey, etc. The few shows we watch on regular TV we record and skip past the ads.

I tend to agree about the ads for pharmaceuticals that have a long list of serious side effects.

I also cannot stand any ad that makes people look incredibly stupid. These people are primarily female, but I've seen my share of stupid men in ads too (mainly drinking or at sporting events).

The first time I saw the ad for Geico with Max, the pig, crying wee wee wee all the way home, I cracked up. Now I am tired of him.

A new one for me. I watched intermittent coverage of the LPGA Evian Major. A commercial advertising Evian bottled water showed several babies dancing and in the mirror reflection or on the other side of the glass a bunch of adults were dancing. I know it is suppose to be a cute commercial, but I find it annoying.

{P.S.: I know I am in the minority on this one, but I just flat-out don't like the commercial and put it on mute unless I change to another channel.}

Any ad from attorneys wanting to get you a quick cash settlement (ambulance chasers)
Any pharmaceutical ad with a fast talking disclosure at the end.
Any gimmick for quick weight loss.
Those ads with the kids in a circle talking nonsense.
LOUD commercials where the volume is twice as high as the show you were watching.
