    Sing & Run Away

    There's one I know as it's on a lot that sort of goes, Two women are at a table in a café when one goes to the other, "So, who does your car insurance," And the other just feels the need to break into a song, which most of the people in the café join in...

    Miller Lite And Dr. Pepper 10

    I "love" the misplaced boldness of commercials that are designed to make guys question their manhood. I suppose its only a joke but that kind of meat-headed humor just doesn't appeal to me. And part of me believes that advertisers created those commercials believing that there...

    I Love/hate the Termanix (sp?) Roach Commercials !

     Especially the one where the giant roach is delivering a pizza !   The woman says "But we didn't order a pizza"     He says "Let me just put it on  the table for you".     Roaches do come in that way...

    I Think Most Commercials Are Stupid

    I mean honestly.... I hate loud commercials, repetitve commercials, commercials that think they're funny but aren't, really obviously low-budget commercials, drug commercials that don't tell you what the drug does, etc. Thank god for Tivo and the fast forward button.

    Easter Commerical.

    There is this new commercial for a store, it's advertising Easter basket stuffers, and the song makes me want to beat my head against a wall.  Instead of singing, "Do the bunny hop" the woman says it sooo weird and it sounds like, "Do the bunny hump"...

    **** You, Pizza Hut

    I just saw the most stupid commercial ever. They blindfolded a family of four, took them out of their house and told them they were going to a restaurant.  When really they just took them right back to their own house and fed them pasta dishes from Pizza Hut. Now, I don't...

    The Ones Where You Have To Turn Down The Volume

    Pet peeve number 97... You are watching something on TV, it goes to a commerical, and it is so loud that it wakes the baby up in the next room.  I have to get up from the computer, find the remote and fix it. Wonder if we can sue for hearing loss from this crap?
