I will never buy a Mazda because of the Zoom-Zoom thing. The kid wasn't a toddler, but its the same annoying situation.

I have all Youtube references firewalled at work, so I'm not sure if this one has been mentioned, but...

Justin Case from SafeAuto needs to be thrown into a box and launched into the sun. Do I really think a 20-something guy stuck in the office at 11:00 PM by himself fielding phone calls from people who need car insurance is THAT enthusiastic about his job? And if he is, that dude is either getting paid $80 an hour or he's created his own level of LOSER.

I will say, too, that for a company whose advertising budget probably exceeds the GDP of some third-world countries, McDonald's produces a lot of garbage commercials. My favorites are the "What We're Made Of" ads that make it seem like the lettuce on your Big Mac was just bought from someplace in the Strip District that morning.

The "Give me back that Filet o' Fish" ad was pretty funny when it first came out, though.

The ridiculous amount of Walmart ads that are currently playing. Lets be honest - the people in those commercials look nothing like the real, average Walmart shoppers and the stores are never that clean or nice-looking.

And I am so glad to see that others hate Gus as well. That creepy little groundhog puppet...

There are two...Flo and the Progressive commercials. I want to stab her to death with a rusty shiv.

And, there's a commercial that airs on the food network or travel channel, but it's basically a Sutter Home extended commercial talking about how you should have wine and fresh fruit at your next football party. What kind of people get together and drink wine and make their own flipping sangrias before and during the "big game"?!

I also hate the phrase "big game"...especially when it's referring to "any" game.

I agree. I hate the commercial of the baby buying stock on internet.

And though the newer GEICO caveman commercials are pretty lame compared to the first ones, they're all 100 times better than any of the GEICO stack of money commercials.

EDIT: It's not a commercial, but the kid on youtube doing the Herb Brooks' "Miracle on Ice" speech makes me want to puke also. Watching it once was more than enough for me.

haha. i'm starting to love that commercial.. my computer used to be really fast. but now it's just kinda fast.

i've hated that commercial, but i realize i like thinking about how bad it is.

but things like that gecko or that groundhog, i HATE thinking about them. i like the moneystack commercials. they're harmless and random enough.

i hate the tgif commercials. the guy, "hotdog it, i'll tell you what we're eating" and then the girl who i think is rachel ray doing the other commercial. just the voice. i hate that squelchy voice.

i LOVE anthony hopkins doing a radio commercial advocating a healthy diet. i usually turn it up when it comes on. it's terrible but the way he pronounces KAN..SAIR is very appealing.

i hate those commercials about car oil. dude driving in his see-through car with the pistons and valves pumping gangbusters. he gets a smug smile on his face. and they're saying, when your car's running well, you FEEL it.

The Pizza Hut commercial with Dan Breuer was terrible. I mean, Dan Breuer? He's been obsolete for 10 years. Also the Pizza Hut pizza Mia commercial where the guy keeps asking stuff and faints because his pizza is just $5 or whatever.

OH man...you just reminded me of the other commercials I hate.

I despise those Cadillac commercials that get all like creepy sexual about people and cars. "When you turn your car on, does it return the favor?" It's just...furry-level weird.

I also hate that american express commercial that talks about the rewards with Geena Davis. Her husband says "we can use our points to go on vacation" and she says "no we can't I used a VACATIONS AMOUNT WORTH OF POINTS to buy this dress lol teehee." And he just smiles and laughs...if my wife did that...I wouldn't be smiling and laughing. More like screaming and punching.

It was bothering me because the woman looked familiar to me but I couldn't place her so I googled it - it's Molly Culver, though I can't say I've ever seen any shows she's been on...

Either way...how could someone seriously spend a vacation's amount of points on a dress and look their husband in the eye and say it's no big deal?

I do have the slight urge to knock that guys teeth out. But since he survived a hurricane and an avalanche, undoubtedly at the same time, he might prove a worthy adversary.

The woman in that commercial looks like a cross between cindy crawford and julia roberts. she is stunning.
