NFT: Annoying commercials

GMAN56 : 9/15/2020 2:36 pm
To kinda piggy back off of user BestFeatures post, what commercials currently or in the past have annoyed you?

Watching Yankee or Met games, it has to be all of them as they are the same commercials over and over, especially UNIFIED. Years ago went to a LI Ducks game and they played that for every foul ball.

Not annoying as much as it is surprising  
Poktown Pete : 9/15/2020 2:51 pm : link
but Draft King ads during NFL football games? NFL that hard up for bucks it needs to help legitimize gambling? A bad look imo.
Who remembers watching football on TV in 2006?

THIS.

I don't know who the ad agencies are hiring, but they aren't doing a very good job.

but the split screen ads and promos that ESPN does while free throws are being shot in the NBA bubble/playoff games bug the hell out of me.

What I really hate  
Mad Mike : 9/15/2020 3:41 pm : link
is the one that's sandwiched in between other commercials, where the Giants' offensive line can't do sh*t. That one's been running for quite a few years now, and it's really run its course for me.

The girl in that commercial looks like she really likes those foot longs while she sings.

Also the aunt Geico one has got to be the worst commercial ever. Really? Bringing back the "outspoken old lady" trope back? Oh like Everybody Loves Raymond and the mom meddles lol so funny.

Cannot wait until they bring back the talking babies again.
Don't know if you get these commercials back east:

1) Freshly. With the over the top "WE DON'T HAVE TO COOK ANYMORE!!!!"

2) Buick. With the young couple arguing over whether the car is a "Buick" or an "Alexa."

Attractive young couples in both commercials, but their private conversations should have stayed private.

3) Almost all pharmaceutical commercials. Nobody talks like that.

4) The Mazda commercials with the Haley Reinhart cover of The Cranberries' "Dreams". Overplayed to death.

5) I love Milana Vayntrub, but I don't like the new "Lily from AT&T" commercial. Swing and a miss.

6) Bud Zero

I can't believe how long they've been showing these.
I take it back.

I just saw a commercial during Celts Heat game promoting the NFL on ESPN with people singing Cher's 'Its All Coming Back to Me'.

WTF?
Excuse me.

I noticed in the newest AT&T spot she seems to have chunked up a little in her midsection. If you look close she's gotten hippy and has a gut going.

Oddly enough, My wife especially and I like that commercial. I do not wish to see it 5 times per hour, but it cracks me up.

The "Buick/Alexa" one is quite stupid.

The AT&T one with the guy in the tub is effin annoying
Buick is so obviously...  
jnoble : 9/16/2020 10:59 am : link
...trying to get away from their image of only making cars for old people and want to be seen as fancy and high class like Mercedes or a BMW with an attractive younger crowd. It's sad.

Any commercial that plays "Return of the Mack." It really is an awesome song.

Ive driven over a million miles in my life and I couldn't get rid of my Turbo Regal fast enough. Buick has lost its way I'm afraid.

Having said that...

It's a Buick!
No...it's an Alexa!

No...yer a d**k!

Sorry but there’s no way all the girls in this ad get laid.

LOL. Sadly, a few buddies I went to high school with would be interested in that livestock.
