it's not local, or at least it isn't for me ;)

others:
- viva viagra, enzyte, smiling bob, and all of the other male enhancement commercials.
- Progressive Flo. Didn't bother me at first, but now I can't stand her.
- GEICO, caveman and lizard/gecko/whatev.
- almost any Sportscenter commercial featuring an anchor. shut your mouth and get back behind your desk.

The first thing that came to mind when I read the thread title was GEICO. But just about any car insurance or cell phone commercial is stupid. Especially verizon.

Props to whoever mentioned the mac vs. pc, those are probably the worst by far, but luckily I don't see them as often as the insurance or cell phone ones.

I have to defend this. While the ad may be annoying, I (apparently a smug jerkoff :D ) get way more then 10 more miles per gallon. It's more like 25. I'm averaging 50mpg now.

Smiling Bob must be destroyed. Immediately.

The Verizon jerkoff who makes six figures (at least) just to stand there and not really do anything.

Bucco commercials. They just remind me of how much the ownership laughs at us.

GEICO commercials get worse and worse.

Well... I stopped doing that when I kept having to unclog the toilet. They don't flush easily.

I'm actually quite enamored with the Pizza Hut JACKPOT! commercials. I try to use that term at least once a day where appropriate.

I know this commercial has been discussed before, but by far the worst is that stupid, stupid, stupid Golden Corral commercial:

"No problem! No problem! PROBLEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Any Burger King commercial involving the King, or the Whopper family.

I'm indifferent to the Geico gecko commercials, but I have to admit I like the one where a "temp" had to fill in for the gecko. It's pretty funny.

I agree....but i think i just dislike the golden corral concept in general...i've never eaten there, but i have a pretty good idea why you get so much food for that amount of $$$

The Verizon commercial with the weirdly smiling woman who refuses to talk to the guy she's helping. One of the lines is something about getting her a hat. Drives me nuts. Say something!! :lol:
