Your MOST hated commercials

Hi,
I was just wondering, what commercials does everyone here REALLY hate, these can be radio, tv, or web ads. 2 I hate a lot are:

1) Theres a company in the USA that have teamed up with IBM to offer an IBM computer for $1 (US) a day. Now, I'm ok with this, but their commercials are SOOOOO annoying, they have a few songs, like: Do you think you reaaaaaly wanna clone? and then some people shout No way! it pisses me off.

2) IGN Direct commercials. theyre a bank, they have these commercials which say stuff like: If you give us $25 a week, then in a year, we'll give you $1342, now.... do the math... 25*4 weeks in a month= 100 *12 months in a year = 1200, so basically, they gave you $142, most banks give you more...
So,these are my hated commercials, what are yours?

Any Pelé´s comercials. They suck.
In this new Coca Cola comercial, they modified the "Pai-Nosso" ("Our Father", a catholic oration) and put things like "Give us the goal of everyday", making it pro-soccer and pro-coke. In the end, it shows his face, dirty with coca-cola, and he holding a coca-cola bottle. It´s really horrible. The Vatican shuld beat the crap out of Coke....

As if it could!

Dunno about worst advert ever, but my all-time favourite is the Metz advert. Dunno if it exists outside the UK, but it was very gothic and silly really

Loan Adverts ("In debt? Take out a loan!!" )
Any American informercial,
==
Any advert that use's the "slightly different" techique.
I don't know if anyone else has noticed, but loads of adverts these days seem to come in "multiple versions", all virtualy the same except for a slight difference.
I think they do it as a type of hyponosis or something.
So you sub-conciously go "hay..wasn't that.", and you think about the product more.

I dont like these makeup commersials (loreal: because imworth it)

Neither car commercials.

Or baby commercials.

Or tena lady incontenence guard.

Or vodafone.

Or the ones with men's clothes. Where a presentator speaks about the clothes in bass voice. (They actually adds a lot of bass to the male voices in commercials, that is creepy)

etc

and which brit hasn't got etched into their brain, "want a low-cost loan from 500 to 15,000 pounds? why not call lombard direct?"

grrrrrrrrrr


but the most disgusting and irritating adverts of all are the legal firms ones which have floated over from the USA.

have you been so stupid as to trip over in someone else's back yard, in the last ten years? why not call Americanised Legal Moneygrabbers Direct and screw hundreds of thousands of pounds out of some innocent person - completely without charge?!

mary smith from london was very pleased with our help.

"one day oi lost my last remaining braincell and that cawsed me to spill my scawding hot coffee all over me in a café. well oi di'n't know coffee were supposed to be 'ot, did oi? i cawed Americanised Legal Moneygrabbers Direct and after a few monfs, we screwed £720,000 out of the poor bugger 'o owned the café. oi was wew pleased."

call Americanised Legal Moneygrabbers Direct today and we could make you richer! subjecttotermsandconditionsamericanisedlegalmoneygrabbersdirect takeatleast70%andupto100%ofallpaymentsfromcourt


GRRRRRRRRRR

americans please don't take offence. i just hate the american legal system and how it's coming over here...

Oh, baby commercials...
"You love your baby, and he loves you, keep him soft and fresh
by wiping his ass in front of the camera"
Someone asked the baby if he agrees?

My head automatically twisted that to "happy families you eat".

Lifestyles condom commercials are pretty unrealistic...I mean, usually, a guy carries a condom in his wallet. In the commercial, the guy searches through his bathroom drawers, only to come upon the last drawer, which is the deepest and has the largest volume of contents: Lifestyles condoms, varying in texture, flavor, and lubrication. After spilling them on the floor, he ends up finding just the right one, a blue lubed thingy, and goes back the the bedroom where the girl is spraying perfume on herself.....

Should I feel un-normal not to have had an experience like that?


Oh yeah, Britney Spears pepsi: "for those who think young?" blah!

That's it.

Not to mention Pampers adverts include mothers kissing their babies' asses to prove just how soft they are. *Shudder* Some of the stuff they do on those adverts border on harrassment.

Tampon ones are particularly unsettling as well. (I don't want to hear about "women's problems"...)

Regards,
Morden

Oh, I forgot those truth.com ads, I hate them. Yes, I understand the message, put its people's choice if they want to smoke cigarettes. My Dad smokes, and as a future doctor, I discorage him simply because of the health risks, but its his choice.

The ads, from throwing body bags in NYC (taken off TV after 9/11, for good reason) and "ammoninaid" which is found in cigaretts. The latest one is where they launched about a gazillion toy babies in nyc and wrapped non-smoking info around their necks......its just annoying. Good message, but really annoying.

I really hated a certain Tom&Jerry commercial by Cartoon Network. They aired it on and on and on.
Fortunately they don´t do it anymore.
