The commercial where Jim Krenn is imitating Dr. Phil is not funny and very cringe worthy.

The "Air Curler". It looks like a water pitcher attached to a hair dryer.

The Discover "It" commercial. What is the point of the customer and the customer service rep looking alike?

The Josh Yohe and Rob Rossi commercial that played over and over during the radio broadcast of the game yesterday.

Then just use the same actor. Just because someone looks like me doesn't mean they'll treat me well.

The one good thing about relocating is that I no longer have to see those stupid Laurel Toyota commercials anymore.

Haven't followed this thread so I don't know if it has been posted....I see "any local car dealer" was mentioned. I get that they need to advertise and they try to stand out....I will let most go even though they are annoying.

But the dude in the Cowboy hat that screams on the radio and TV...I will purposely never ever shop there because of you.

Oh I'm sure there are thousands of suitable replacements. Those Laurel ads were grating though, almost like nails on chalkboard. They were always guilty of finding a place to throw their kids into the commercial, usually at the end with their slogan.

Free advice fom JS©: if your kids are still learning the language and/or multi-syllable words, I'm not sure having them attempt the slogan is considered "cute" or a good selling point....and yes, I realize that's probably mean and makes me a bit of a jerk.

I am particularly peeved by the PSAs that promote the concept of going outdoors and visiting a forest. It’s not that they’re all that bad, but they’re running them in January when it’s 10° outside.

That bothers me the least of all of those ads. The witch in the broom factory is much much worse.

Those new AT&T commercials with kids are the worst. I hope the kid in the one that talks about a tree house falls out of the tree house and the tree house then falls on him.
