2. Not even close.

That Chevy guy with the "not actors" makes me want to upchuck as much as Flo does.

That's where ad nauseum comes from.

The “over the top” stereo-type accent made it funnier.

4. The ad is obnoxious, to be sure

What, you don't go out and spend $100,000 on motor vehicles without consulting your spouse? Loser!

I had a friend who had what he called "rathole money." It was the amount of money he or his wife could spend without checking with the other. When they first got married, it was twenty bucks. Years later, it had gone up to a hundred bucks. I can't imagine the scenario where I'd do what that commercial depicts.

8. I disagree...

There a set of ads that ask for monthly donations for a bunch of different organizations,all good organizations mind you,but they all want $19 bucks a month and will send you a "gift" that includes a t-shirt.
What upsets me is the totally pro photography, the heart tugging music, the carefully crafted voice over, the "last chance" tagline,you get the point

I don't mind that these organizations asking for help I just hate it when some Madison Avenue ad agency plays with my emotions, obviously hires a psych team and spends way too much making these ads.

I wonder how much of ones monthly donations are tax deductible.

world for $19 a month. Strange how they all have that number.

There's a Charmin commercial that comes on and they say "Hey! If you drink that extra large soda, you'll wind up going to the bathroom 5 minutes into the movie!". Like they're predicting my own bowel movements now?

12. The GMC ads do suck

But the two that will cause me to mute or change he channel are Wayfair (I think it’s mainly their horrible music) and Liberty Insurance, which is particularly offensive because I know that they specialize in high-risk drivers who have to pay exorbitant premiums.
“We have the meats!” also drives me nuts.

My wife was an insurance broker for years. Dont drive like a jackass and you wint pay through the nose. She used to refuse to insure sone drivers and they would become irate.

...still just as annoying during Christmas season

Much rather look at the "lovely people" in the GMC commercial

thanks for the thread so I could vent

14. Hard to choose. I know I thought the Movado watch commercials were clever . . .

the first 7 or 8 thousand times I saw them. The Christmas commercial that drives me nuts is the PCmatic ad with the faux rock band. I would never buy their product just because of their ads.

20. The car company sales events are getting more and more obnoxious.

Last year I saw a Honda ad that said something like "Hey! Remember the feeling that you got when you gave your special someone that new Accord? Do it again this year!". Yeah sure, turn a $30,000 loan into a $60,000 one. Why not? YOLO!

24. Those are truly annoying ads I agree, and

reach for the mute as fast as I can, especially that Infinity ad with the woman sing-screeching something about "goin' to the mountain".

But for un-annoying and cute ads --- the Subaru ads with the Golden Retriever family win my vote. Especially the car wash ad.

(Disclosure: I drive a Subaru)

27. You mean the one with the couple in their early thirties living in a

$2-million mansion and the guy buys $120,000 in trucks (that will never be driven during a drizzle, let alone off-road) as early Xmas stocking stuffers?

That ad?

Well, at least the girl is kinda hot...😱

29. I like how the trucks and cars are the stocking stuffers.

Like really, advertisers think that we have the gross domestic product of a small country to spend on gifts. Most of us can barely afford one of those giant bows.

38. As I said in another thread where this ad came up;

"Hi! We're the Affluent's! I'm Chase and this is my wife, Citi. We're unbelievably loaded, even though we have only been grownups for 12 years! You see, my dad is the CEO of the Color Blue, and her dad is President of Oxygen, so we went through college and came out debt free and started immediately working at jobs that paid a half million a year. So I bought us two pickup trucks the day after Thanksgiving, just to rub your fucking nose in it!"

Diseases or illnesses I haven't heard of and side effects that sound worse than the illness.

37. Yep

If 80K is stocking stuffers something has gone off the rails. In real life I bought myself and my housemate matched remanufactured Chromebooks at under $100 for the pair. That's kinda more like real people do it.
