The title says it all. Post descriptions (or youtube videos) of those commercials that come on when you're watching TV that make you want to punch the nearest baby or small animal.

Here's the ones that I can think of...

Gamefly "Never Buy A Bad Game Again" Commercials
GGHEhKo5Ils

This commercial pisses me off to no end. The constant screaming and making gamers look like immature douchebags make me never want to use gamefly ever.

Also, the Subway 5 dollar footlong commercials. They started out amusing to me...

If you need me to explain why I found that amusing, it's because I have the mentality of a 12 year old boy when it comes to humor. I couldn't watch the cop in that commercial without hearing in my head "Stop! It's THIS big!"

Then they started showing montages of random people singing their song in different styles and their 5 dollar footlong campaign became a mere annoyance to me...

Minor annoyance, but nothing too bad. But then they made another one, that made subways commercials go from "Minor Annoyance" to "going to drop kick a puppy." I can't find a youtube video of it, but basically it's a bunch of people that rush a subway and start singing the song like a musical, which features a woman that says "ANY footlong." in a way that rapes my ears with a rusty railroad spike.

So, any others?

Either the Mac vs. PC commercials and/or the FiOS vs. cable commercials.

These comparison type ads always annoy me... especially when the non-cool PC or cable guy is depicted as a clueless, chubby schlub, while the Mac and FiOS guy is always a neat, skinny, together with-it hipster.

As someone who uses cable internet access to connect a PC, I must be the lamest guy on the planet. :dozey:

That Prius commercial with the people acting like plants. At first it was impressive artistically... then the music... the music, oh god whenever it comes on I want to kick babies out of hotel windows.

I really don't know why the song gets to me, but I just wanna kill something it's so fake and cheery.

It's a radio commercial, so I really doubt I'll find a youtube video of it, but I am pissed off to no end by the Six Flags Great America commercials that air on 103.5 Kiss FM. Every single one of them. They think that they're so cool and hip with their advertising style, but they just make me so angry. So, so, so angry.

Anyone know what I'm talking about?

Just so you know, it advertises for a mobile phone operator. It's overused and one of those "I chuckled the first time, now get off my back and take your crappy commercial with you" commercials.

And this advertises a stupid directory assistance. I hates them 'cause they mock my home city and have hired one of the worst actors/comedians to do that ad -shakes fist-

And no. I do not expect any of you to know those commercial. With the exception of the one other Finn that happens to lurk about these parts :p

No ********, because they play them inside the bloody store. Makes me want to punch the strangely hot emo girl behind the counter every time.

Thank god I cannot find it on YT, but it was a Saturn Car commercial with the most nauseating guy's voice "jazz" singing the melodies of some (I think) older song. Aired in 2007-2008, about. Bad enough.

Worse yet: anybody else here have a mom or other family member who picks up on it and sings it ad nauseum? My own mother picks up on it and sings aloud it r.e.p.e.a.t.e.d.l.y everywhere we went as a family. Especially in the cars (as any song she gets stuck in her head). It's not musical, or even amusing.

The song makes me want to punch babies. Play soccer with them. Even the old original or any variation thereof.

I want to punch babies all the time. It is part of my natural state as a terrible person who deserves to be held accountable for his numerous crimes against humanity.
