Of course it could be worse and be Jim Browne commercials, the dude that owns like 23948293842 car dealerships around Tampa/Hillsborough County.

I hate all the Time-Warner Cable commercials. Ricky Gervaise and the dummy grenade, stupid True Blood tie-in with raining blood, all of them.

That new Accucheck Nano commercial has to be one of the most irritating pop songs I've ever heard. Something about her voice and those lyrics just grates my ears.

Hey guys, it's football season again! Guess what that means! If you guessed "new Ford F-150 commercials where Dennis Leary speaks and the words appear on the screen as he's speaking them," you're absolutely right!

They've been doing this kind of lazy commercial for at least three years. Give it up.

HEY. Do you like cars? Like, truck cars? How about ones that are really good at doing truck car things, like pulling stuff or running over deer? Of course you do. Buy our truck car, voted top truck car by people who know truck cars.

Truck commercials are the worst because they are all doing these like ridiculously rugged things such as hauling boulders up a flaming spire of fire death. Because you know, when you go into the dealership you want to cover your bases and make sure you have a vehicle that can handle such an occasion.

No car commercials can measure up to anything Bob Rohrman has produced. Go search him on Youtube, there's so many and they always suck.

There's one awesome moment though, about 10 years ago he was in town doing a live event and he ended up in the emergency room. Well the rumor is he had stuffed a gerbil up his rear end and had to have it removed in the ER. This rumor persisted for years and then he turns up in an ad for his local Toyota dealer in a loving gerbil costume.

Uni-Ball can go gently caress themself. When testing out the new Steam Big Picture mode, I put on a Youtube video and got some lovely ads (I hate having no ad block), but somehow after the video was over it loaded up Facebook for this awful product and kept playing some humming noise. Didn't think much of it since I figured it was just the Steam Big Picture mode's background noise, until I started hearing it in Sleeping Dogs. I will never buy a product from this group ever thanks to this crap.

I'm on vacation in Los Angeles, coming from Belgium. Apparently, commercials for lawyers, credit cards and insurances are not only commonplace but half the commercial break consist of them.

Also, every commercial involving the household requires a dog.

Somebody was telling me they were channel surfing on vacation in Florida and discovered he has dealerships down there, too. Worse yet, he seems to be putting out infomercials there.

But hey, cocaine is expensive I guess.

I have occasionally wondered what happened to Master P after his rap career seemed to abruptly vaporize in the early 2000s.

I didn't think I would find him and Li'l Romeo shilling for some diploma mill, though.

I'm numb to those Ford ads. The ginger neckbeard in the wheat field plugging NFL Network games and NFL.com is currently the frontrunner for most irritating as hell ads of the football season and it's only week 2.

I know people bitch about the low budget local ads being bad, and they are, but I can understand how that happens. To have a MAJOR media property run ads like this is mind boggling. They are really some of the worst ads I've ever seen.

I don't play Wow, so I just see their ads on TV to learn about new expansions and poo poo...but is their new expansion literally Kung Fu Panda?

I mean...there are pandas...they're doing Kung Fu...and the commercials seem like they're going to totally serious route, not a tongue-in-cheek kind of thing.

And the land is called "Pandara?" Really? So are owl-people next, from "Owlra"?
