A long time ago I saw a commercial about nail fungus… the cartoon fungus lifts up the toenail & crawls under it. *shudder* I don’t think I ever watched the whole thing, but it makes me sick to my stomach.

It’s a stupid, sickening commercial.

I abhor the Comcast commercials with the “Slowskis.”  This stupid tortoise couple that likes slow internet connections.  Ugh.

Also the Geico ones with the money with eyes.  That song drives me insane and the advertisements just don’t make much sense.

RecessionistaBride: I remember that commercial!  It was soooooooo gross I had to cover my eyes when it was played.

@jillian – I hate the Geico money w/eyes too.

My FI hates the Nasonex commercial with the French bee. Actually, we both hate all the ads with the talking animated animals or cars. Creeeepppy!

My favorite commercials are the ones with the freecredit report.com guy. LOVE him but drive FI up a tree cause I get the songs stuck in my head and I know all the words:-)

@Bellenga– I hate that Chase one too!  First, It’s a totally crappy thing for that woman to do.  Second, the guy just laughs it off!  If I did something like that, FI would be P.O.’d!  That commercial does not reflect my reality.  I cannot relate to it and I’ve lost respect for both characters by the time it is over.

I have to agree that the sham wow guy is totally creepy- have you seen the one he made for the slap chop? I guess he got in trouble a few months ago for beating up a prostitute… a real winner there.

I hate this commerical on IO Digital Cable!  Not sure if it’s local only, but every time it comes on I have to change the channel!

I cannot stand the Head On ones… The product that you rub on your forehead to eliminate headaches… haha. That one is so annoying. There is also an insanely annoying guy who sells car stereo equipment and things like that. I don’t remember the company but he seems really hyper active and it is very disturbing!

The one I can’t stand: The yogurt commercial where the lady rips open the yogurt, tilts it back, and DRINKS it, then wipes her face and looks around while doing this creepy overbite.  The nail fungus commercials don’t gross me out at all, but the yougurt one does.  I will actually change the channel when that one comes on, so I don’t even know for sure which yogurt it is, (I THINK Light N Fit).

And maybe it’s because I work retail, but the new Aleve commercial annoys me too.  It’s the one where the lady has like, four boxes of Tylenol in her basket, then realizes she only needs ONE box of Aleve to get the same amount of pain relief.  So she takes the Aleve and we see her SET DOWN HER BASKET AND WALK AWAY!!!!! NOOOOOOO!!!!  Put back the crap you change your mind on!  You don’t just set it on the floor and leave!

Y’all are cracking me up.

I hate the Geico money commercials too and the one for that other insurance – where they’re “shopping” for insurance with that annoying lady. 

Usually it’s the voices or the nasty stuff that irritate me – the toenail thing, the mucinex blob, etc.

My hubby and I love the Comcast commercials with the Slowskys.

I am so tired of the Geico commercials with the money.
