The last Ads You Hate thread was one of my favorite threads on the forums, so I'm delighted to present the all new, re-designed 2011 Ads You Hate thread: Cobalt Edition.

I'll get the hate ball rolling:

HH Greg is opening some stores around here for the first time ever. They have this ad playing almost non-stop with a lovely cover of Help! and I think I hate this chain already even though their stores technically aren't even open yet.

I can't stand ANY HH Greg advertisements, based purely on the mascot. On what planet is a rolled-up advertising circular with the Walmart smile for a head an effective public relations tool?

Watching Tosh.0 the other night, there were 3 of the same Worx Energy Drink commercials in a row (it worx for me!), followed by... a commercial for 5-Hour Energy Drink. I was about to flip the gently caress out.

That's what you get for watching Tosh.0.

Speaking of Domino's, I can't stand that "OMG WE'RE GIVING AWAY THREE-TOPPING PIZZAS FOR $7.99!!!!" commercial.

I flinch every time the cook says "This pizza is worth at least TWICE that!"

Seriously? gently caress you, cook! There's not a person alive who would pay $16 for a loving Domino's pizza!

He's not as good but I do have to laugh at it being Fabio.

It's my understanding that the whole "Fabio is the new Old Spice guy" is a shadow campaign. They're encouraging people to RAAAGGGEEE until the old Old Spice guy makes a (already fully developed and probably filmed) "come back."

Watch the Fabio ad(s) again, and the faux-rivalry becomes really obvious.

That is why they are ads I hate.

I can't stand that Geico commercial where the 3 office nerds are doing dumb poo poo with their smartphones. I just want to drop kick them all.

I laughed at this loving commercial ONCE, because my father's jolly laughter is infectious. He took this as a cue to repeat "Can a gentleman with a bro 'stache get an invite to this party?" EVERY. DAY.

I'm running out of polite chuckles.

I know, I know. They even play it on the radio now, but I believe it's changed to "The hip to the McNugget hop; the flip to the flop."

I hate the new Taco Bell commercial where they have an "edgy" trick chef making that 99 cent chicken, ranch, cheese, and wrap. I'm trying to use my imagination but given the types of stoners that work at my local taco bell I have a hard time pretending that kind of effort is put into that wrap.

The long-form version of this commercial drives me loving berserk.

Douche chef: I can do that.

Judge: For 99 cents?

Douche chef: Probably not.

Grrrr! OF COURSE you can do it for 99 cents, jerkoff! THAT'S WHAT IT COSTS!

I'm terrified of those Western Skies payday loan commercials. Those Native Americans want to steal the gently caress out of your money, and they make no bones about it.

Just saw a KFC commercial acting all about how other restaurants make chicken nuggets and "where on a chicken is a nugget?". The commercial then proceeds to advertise popcorn chicken.

Where on a chicken is the "popcorn", exactly? I know later in the commercial it says that it's "100% premium breast meat", but still. It's the same thing, you pedantic jerks

I'll tell you why this should drive you crazy: When a good many of us were youngins, 100% premium breast meat was the furthest ingredient from popcorn chicken. Seriously. You were lucky if the fried skin you were eating contained ANY chicken. Old-school KFC popcorn chicken was essentially a box full of chicken skin kernels.

Speaking of horrible cellphone ads, has anyone seen the Consumer Wireless commercial with the (not-so) vaguely homosexual twins? The narrator refers to them as "The [Whatever] Twins, for Consumer Wireless," as if they're famous. It confuses the poo poo out of me.

My parents watch a TON of The Gameshow Network, and it's a hotbed for the cheapest, most awful commercials on Earth.

Anyone who watches NBC shows OnDemand has probably been through the Hell that is FIVE loving trailers for In Maude We Trust playing throughout a given half hour program.

It's the same ridiculously long, painfully unfunny trailer every time! At this point, I'd rather watch a full commercial break of different commercials than see that poo poo again.

Has anyone else seen that Green Giant commercial where they show "farmers" wrapping up each individual ear of corn in these special, corn-shaped packages? Something about how they pack all their vegetables fresh?

It's insulting. We all know our corn is harvested by bigass combines, and we're ok with that! Don't coddle my corn, baby.
