3. I thought that was a New York accent

My most annoying is Tom Selleck lecturing me on why he wouldn't let any reverse mortgage broker take advantage of an American senior. I guess Canadian seniors are fair game.

It's the ones where they lie about Medicare benefits. Shame on you, Joe Namath.

11. I thought we would be rid of him

after open enrollment, but not so.

Never liked him from his Jets days...a real phony. Plus from having grown up in the NYC area, there are only 4 legitimate sports teams in NYC...Yankees, Giants, Rangers and the Knicks. The Mets, Jets, Nets are all pretenders.

13. All Last Fall

Namath kept saying you have until Dec 7th to switch, and I kept thinking I can't wait until Dec 8th to get here, and it will all be over. He's STILL doing it. What the hell happened to Dec 7th?

Trump was kicked off Twitter.

I'm not buying anything from companies that spend $$$ on advertising, especially not stupid ads.

28. Yeah, I've seen some of those that are pretty sly and funny.

Some better than others. I love that they got into the pandemic zeitgeist pretty early, with the zoom call and all.

17. I really hate

Liberty Mutual ads. The poor emu. What the heck?! How can they use that animal? Stupid ads, one after the other. I have asked my husband why they don’t fire the advertisers. I really despise them.

Progressive used to be funny. Now, just annoying.

The Dr Rick ones were clever. But, we don’t need to see them forever, either.

31. I just had the misfortune to see this infantile - good gawd!

"Number 2" - what are we, 3 years old? Reminds me of a particularly sophomoric Febreeze ad that shows an older man running down the stairs for the spare bathroom, with the voiceover saying that this bathroom is his "number 1 place to go number 2."

And someone got paid good money for this -

I will be reaching for the mute button

35. Geico has great ad writers

The only one I don't find funny is the recent one with the guy smashing boxes.

My favorite was the Tarzan ad.

26. Wet teddy bears: #1 irritating TV ad, agreed.

Close runner-up: The heavy-set "actor-comedian" driving the vintage Olds convertible, flashing the fake smile every 3 seconds, and hawking the diabetes medication.

32. On other DU threads about irritating commercials, the pink...

..."Kars for Kids" is universally despised. If I can't get to the mute button immediately, I stick my dingers oin my ears and loudly sing something else.

I loathe that ad.

the insurance companies are competing to see who can make the most asinine commercials. Who on earth thought "wet teddy bears" was marketing genius????
