is there a commercial you wish would go away? granted,you can change the channel, but sometimes it ends up on all stations. what is the most grating one you can remember? mine right now is that dancing "berries and cream" guy for starburst candies.sad thing is,i've seen things like that waiting for buses.

The Geico one, Taco Bell (long gone thankfully) and the caveman ones for car insurance are really becoming taxing to me.

I started out liking the Geico gecko but have since become tired of him. You don't like the cavemen? I still get a kick ouf them, I'm afraid to say. :) I'm with you all the way on the Taco Bell front.

you guys know the cavemen are getting a tv show,right? i can't imagine them expanding that joke into 30 minutes,though.

That doesn't surprise me. I just came across this: http://www.cavemanscrib.com/ Wow, I guess those cavemen are really popular! *laugh out loud* I wonder if that show will last more than an episode or two.

The most annoying advert for me in the UK is the "Cillit Bang" commercials where the guy seems to only have one volume for his voice...bloody loud!

omg. I would definatley have to say the skittles one where this guys opens up a black bag and pulls out a little man who hangs on the ceiling to stop the ceiling from leaking.They played it mainly ont the saturday morning toons. I mean every time the commercials came,there it was ! I hate it with a passion and can't wait til they stop playing it.It's not even funny

There sure is a television commercial that I wish would go away. It is very dumb and annoying any more. It is the Rallys hamburger commercial. They keep saying this side comes with rap cat and they play that dumb music and the guy actors are not funny at all like they are portraying to be. It is really getting on my nerves. I think they need to make a new commercial because the ones they have out are very dumb.

I absolutely detest the "Happy Bob" commercials, but think they may have gone off the air finally. I also do not like feminine personal hygiene products commercials nor the birthcontrol patch type commercials. The six flags commercial with the dancing man. my husband is disturbed by: the head on commercials and I would have to agree with him on that one!

i know exactly what you mean.some channels run so many,it seems like the show is only 15 minutes long because of all the commercials.comedy central's particularily bad for that late night.

Okay...I've read the responses and no one's put in my all time hated commercial. I have cabel tv, so have a few channels I flip through. They have finally taken this commercial off the air, but I still remember it. It was for "male enhancement" and had a man with a hugh stupid grin on his face all the time and talked about his very happy wife! ARGH! YUCK! Terrible! Annoying! Tacky! Just Awful! I just hated it!

I hate that new starburst commercial. IT starts out as some guy in a elf costume passing by 2 other guys. The 2 guys say that they have the new berries and cream starburst. The guy in the elf costume is like " Did you say berries and cream". The other guys are like yea and he does this weird dance and sings " Berries and Cream Berries and Cream im a little lad who loves berries and cream". Then he goes like crazy and does another stupid dance and starts screaming the berries and cream song. It makes me wanna punch someone lol.

Well, i think themost annoying commercials have GOT to be those Head-On commercials. "Head-On, apply directly to the forehead!" over and over and over! NOW they have even MORE annoying ones where that phrase wil be going on and then someone will come out and interrupt it and say "ead=On, i can't STAND your commercials, but you've got a great product!" Why on EARTH would they go and make an already overly annoying commercial even MORE annoying?

Nearly all of them are annoying. I can't think of the worst one. However there is one good one, well, a series really. Optus, a telephone company in Australia, make fantastic commercials. They always copntain real animals in them. Whoever desgned these Optus commercials has got a way with relating animals to the need to use Optus. They are so clever. PS. I use the opposition telephone company.

sounds almost like our geico commercials. they'll have animals (particularily a gecko) in scenes that have absolutely nothing to do with insurance.
