    I don't remember if it's Kia or Hundai, but the one with the idiots in white shirts running around
    the showroom singing to the Sound of Music. Down right embarrassing for the brand , whichever it is.

    Chevy commercials where they are playing "This is My Country". I want to shoot myself or move to Canada when I see those.

    All right, who on here revived this thread then apparently deleted their comment - I just read through all 4 pages and come to see the final comment is from 2007, but it had been near the top of the queue so SOMEONE made a recent post :p

    Anyway, agreed about a better question being which commercials DON'T you FF - don't know if this counts fully but occasionally if I see a new funny ad on live TV I'll go back and rewind it, knowing full well that I'll probably see it 852,734 times in the future :rolleyes:

    Actually there was one exception to that - maybe 8-10 years ago there was an ad for a fast food restaurant, I believe Wendy's but it might have been a different one, which had an old time song that included the line "the chicken is just a bird" - seriously lol'd at it but didn't bother to rewind it to get the full effect, and subsequently never saw it again :confused:

    There's been a lot of spamming of very old threads lately where the spammer revives the thread and gets reported and the offending post gets deleted. I'm guessing that's what happened here.

    Just lock any posts that don't get a response after 30 days then no my bumping of threads. I to hate it when I read a post an it is a old one from last decade. If you really want to post something then just create a new topic. :thumbsdown:

    I think that 30 days is probably too soon. A lot of people save up shows on their Tivo and watch them later. Six months would probably be more appropriate.

    I am really tired of those slippers with the animal faces on them. I only watch movie trailers and there are some beautiful commercials out there. I cannot remember which hard liquor uses very watchable ads.

    There's a "U-Verse" ad that wasn't too bad - the first time. It probably wasn't even that bad the 500th time. But now that it's been shown hundreds of thousands of times, it's a big ARRGGGHHHH for me!!!

    Currently? That quite annoying Wal Mart Cyber Monday Hand Cramp. Nat Geo has been running twice every commercial break all weekend. :mad:

    The Target Black Friday/Christmas shopping ads. Hate them.

    And the Kit-Kat commercials. All of them. Listening to someone crunch a piece of candy doesn't make me want to buy it.

    I think it's Tanger Ale, the one with the woman in the reverb toned voice that repeatedly says "go to" the change in tones of the voices annoys me.

    Certainly over playing ads can turn almost any ad into an annoying one.

    In my area we were getting a ton of food stamp ads, more frequency than any other specific ad I think I've ever seen. In California it's called Cal Fresh, so it would be different in other states. I'm curious if those outside CA were getting similar frequency. We're not getting them now, but for a couple of months they were all over TV and the radio.

    On the positive side, I like the Jameson Whiskey ads, like the Hawk of Ackle, and I don't even drink.

    Almost all of them, but the worst are the endless ads for "male enhancement" products, and the worst of those are for Cialis, with the stupid dual bathtubs, and the awful, awful music. Nothing gets me hitting the skip button faster than that music.

    I read this and I was all like, WTF why do you have to watch live to watch in HD, then I looked at the date, freaking 2006 tech throwback.

    Back when we watched good HD over antennae and the DVRs that could do HD were very limited. LOL

    I have an old TIVO HR10-250 sitting in my basement if anyone wants to buy it........

    Heh. I don't mind those guys. They make me chuckle.

    As for immediate skip, the amazing array of class action settlement attorney ads for every drug known to man annoy me to no end.

    As I said in this post years ago DTC prescription drug ads & movie trailer ads are the worst.

    I get perplexed and annoyed by the ads for one of the cable companies that has the family getting interrupted by pop-up warnings about recording conflicts on their DVR.

    The new Wendy's girl is really annoying too.

    Acura's commercial with Dr. Phil are also FF-worthy.
