    The F'ing DirecTv ads. First off they just suck beer farts and second they run them every break.
    I refuse to even consider DirecTV because of the ads.

    I like them all. I now zip the main stream network content to go right to the commercials. My dog, however, hate the Cricket Wireless commercials and barks like crazy.

    OK, I zip the freezing abandoned dog commercials. Somebody should do something about those poor dogs. They kind of ruin my mood.

    Anything ASPCA. My wife and i have to change the channel. It immediately ruins your mood, and usually ends up running over and over and over.

    Any of the Edgar Snyder commercials make my skin crawl. I read that these scumbag lawyers have made over half a billion dollars from their cases over the past few decades. Almost all of this money comes from our insurance premiums. Snyder takes 40% of every settlement. It is simply a transfer of wealth from regular citizens who pay insurance premiums to Snyder and his gang of dirtballs. His latest commercials try to paint him as a community minded humanitarian. Edgar Snyder commercials are disgusting.

    Subaru "Share the Love" commercials...I am all for charitable giving, but why not just sell the cars $250 cheaper and let the buyer make a direct donation to a charity? I'm no tax expert, but I'm guessing when Subaru donates the $250 to a charity of the buyer's choosing, Subaru gets the tax deduction rather than the buyer who just spent $250 more than he/she/it should have for the car. Perhaps I just answered my own question...

    Not on TV, but the KARS for kids commercials on Sirius/XM. The jingle that is sung is beyond annoying and one of the worst earworms you can ever suffer through.

    All the dang drug commercials. Seems like side affects are worse than what they are trying to fix.

    The Geico commercial where they are in a conference room on the speaker phone and everyone keeps talking over each other. That is damn funny to me. Also a big fan of Dilly Dilly.

    On a side note, any Burger King commercial where they show a burger, with the grill lines on top, moving across a hot flame is blatant false advertising. A burger goes across the flame only once and therefore can only have flame grilled lines on one side of the burger, not both.

    I believe the machine flips the burger. Rolls off one roller and onto a second lower roller.

    That said, not sure they even use those machines anymore.

    "I have a structured settlement, and I need cash now" JG Wentworth. It's made even worse that they now advertise as if it's an audition to sing the jingle.

    I have posted before, but that Santander Bank Commercial that shows four long haired guys in a convertible driving down a road through the evergreens. HATE. THAT.COMMERCIAL.

    Any BTN commercial that seems to focus on Ohio State or Michigan football. Which is to say - most BTN commercials.

    Absolutely this.. and also any Chevy commercial with that annoying guy and the “Real People- Not Actors.” Especially the one where the valet guy pulls up with the wrong car and they get in anyway.

    Not when I worked at a Burger King back in 1981... it was a chain convener belt. In fact, they always told us to make sure we flipped the burger over so grill lines were facing up when we prepared a sandwich.

    The Liberty Mutual commercials with the Statue of Liberty in the Background, where the actors talk about getting replacement value for their aged cards as if it's a novel concept. Have you ever heard of depreciation! They must think we're a bunch of dumb asses.

    After further thought... I agree with your original view. The burgers do flip onto a second grill... which could create lines, but that grill is not over heat. Therefore the footage of them over flame with grill lines is clearly false.

    On a side note. Pizza hut pizza doesn't taste the same since they started using the roller system over just sticking it in the oven like normal pizza places.

    Any commercial that includes folksy singing. Since when did it become popular to feature someone singing, who can't sing? freaking hipsters...

    closely followed by the PCMatic commercials. I don't know why, but when the gap between a persons eyes is less or more than the width of one of their eyes, I see it right away and it annoys me.

    the ASPCA commercials are also annoying, and they're SO freaking long...

    ANYTHING having to do with mesothelioma

    Discover commercials... why the EFF is it necessary to have the person calling customer service and the person answering look alike??



    In retrospect, it seems like I have a problem with commercials in general. This must be why I only watch DVR'd shows...

    Most local car dealership ads that feature the family member of the owner are horrible. In Philadelphia they still show the dead owner in their ads saying “If you didn’t buy your car at Chapman Ford, you probably paid too much.”

    My second worst award goes to - “Dilly Dilly”. I guess if your beer tastes like piss you have to avoid talking about it and distract the masses with something aimed at the Game of Thrones audience.

    The Tea Leoni commercials for Anthem/Blue Cross talking about insomnia. As one who's had some issues with insomnia in the past, it drives me nuts. I immediately hit the change channel button.
