Worst commercial

The burger king commercial creeps me out! Anyone else see a commercial and think “What the heck?”

There was a commercial for Chi Chi's salsa where they would eat it off their feet and drink it with water. I was simply gross. Never understood what the advertisers were thinking. Chi Chi's shut down here so maybe the place wasn't that great.

The Burger King king is a very frightening character, indeed.

But ithose ones aren't nearly as bad as those f'ing Jamster commercials.

I must say, I enjoy the Axel F tune without the Frog in it, too bad now, that tune is unpopular, I was going to use it in one of my mixes, but I think I wont anymore

Saw a commercial where some senator had a heart attack in a seedy motel and a bimbo was trying to do chest compressions in her underwear all the while saying how great this new cell phone was. At the end a big sign goes up and says "Try not to die. Amp'd mobile is coming". Wife and I just looked at each other and said WTF?

I really like the Burger King. I laugh so hard every time I see those ridiculous commercials. But it must be working- everyone's talking about the king, whether it's good or bad talk.

Any of the trend of "screaming" commercials. The first one I remember is the Tim Horton's commercial with the young woman who sees the first fallen leaf of autumn and starts screaming. Now they're everywhere, the germs that scream when they get Lysolled are a real pain.

I also loathe the commercials for the likes of Febreze and other "air fresheners." I think it's probably more to the point to clean your damn filthy house than just fill the rancid air with chemicals.

If you want a good commercial, and you're too dense or too corporate to be funny, put a dog in it.

that new tim hortons one where the old grandma/grandpa are driving from west-east, and the 2 losers are driving from east-west and they randomly meet up in the drive through in the middle. that one is driving me crazy. but apparently its based on a true story... HA!~
