    I usually FF through every commercial, only stopping for the Geico caveman spots.
    But, now the sasquatch beef jerky commercials are calling my attention.

    This may be a NY specific commercial, but the US Window Factory commercial with the woman outside of the house handing her baby through the window to a fireman inside the house while the announcer is screaming his lines ala Crazy Eddie commercial of years gone by !!

    Oh, I thought of one that I used to just HATE...so for anyone in the Eureka, CA area:

    Go see Cal, Go see Cal, Go see Cal!

    Ugh, so obnoxious! It's for cars, but it's more about this nutjob who owns the place.

    Prescription drug ads. They tell you how great the drug is and then they tell you all the sideaffects and tell you not to take it. Why they even shows these since you need to a doctors prescription to get one.

    Movie ads. They are getting more annoying by the minute.

    Car ads.

    BK commericals with the guy in the BK head. The one that the guy wakes up and this dude with a big head smiling at him just creeps me out big time.

    The new one with the chickens and french fries bothers me as well.

    "Maybe I do want to be a french fry"

    I guess I didn't see any connection between these spots and those, besides the fact that the main character(s) speak with a German accent.

    I think that the Ask Dr. Z spots are supposed to be a modern interpretation on the spots with Lee Iacocca - you know, the "If you can find a better car, buy it" spots... the spots are designed to emphasize the fact that Chrysler is now a German-owned company.

    I guess the Dr. Z spots don't really bother me in the least.

    I flip the channel when Girls Gone Wild commercials are on. (they have half an hour infomercials at 5 AM in the morning on the Comedy channel.)

    I believe these are local to Southern CA, but maybe not:

    1) Empire Today (Carpet) *HORRIBLE JINGLE*
    2) 1-800-CLOSET-WORLD *HORRIBLE JINGLE*

    I can't stand either commercial! Argh!!!

    The first is nationwide, the second one I'm not familiar with, so it might be local or regional.

    Every single commercial rates an immediate 30 second advance for me.

    I don't think they are going after the same thing at all.

    The VW "Un-Pimp My Ride" commercials starred an accomplished actor, with a fake German accent, who attempted to convince young buyers that Volkwagon's cars were already cool and exciting.

    The Daimler/Chrysler "Ask Dr. Z" ads star the Chairman of the Board of Daimler/Chrysler, with a real German accent, who is attempting to convince all potential buyers that the merger of these German and American companies has improved the quality of engineering in their cars.

    Forgot to mention the get of out debt commercials and I can't stand that cell phone ad of a monther and daughter arguing in reverse and did I say how much I can't stand movie ads. They are on sometimes every commercial break.
