Commercials That Annoy, Irritate or Outright Enrage

Nope that's the same commercial, although there is a longer version.  Mila Kunis is saying "It wasn't me" when Ashton Kutcher accuses her of eating his Cheetos, and Shaggy (the rapper responsible for a song in which "It wasn't me" was the chorus) is telling her to say that.  When she blames Shaggy for eating the Cheetos, he says "It was her." to Ashton Kutcher.

Thanks for the info! That's it all right.

You guys, there is a very annoying commercial for Coke that is driving me bonkers. The narrator is a slow-talking, over-enunciating woman with a breathy voice that also somehow sounds like she has a mouthful of food. And the music in the commercial almost overpowers her, but not enough that I can’t hear it. 

I don't think I saw that one but I do like the one they have for Diet Coke.....the "mom" commercial.  I especially like the end when they say she can win an argument with just four words "Because I said so."  LOL

Let these celebs all have their Cheetos along with the Rabbit getting all his Trix because I've never liked either of the above items!

Rabbit never gets his Trix because those rotten kids take it from him! Probably the same rotten kids who are always chasing the Lucky Charms leprechaun. Cereal stealers!

Not to mention that poor bird who is not getting the mental health care he so clearly is desperate for. Cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs, indeed.

Yeah, why would any parent seeing that commercial not be worried that that cereal would make their tiny kids MORE hyper?!

Of course, it was interesting that Sonny knew  his  grandfather  despite coming from a long line of feathered folks who'd sneak eggs into nests for other birds to raise!

Heinz ketchup.  A little girl in a car eating a gross-looking burger that is (literally) bigger than her head, topped with a disgusting amount of ketchup.  And people wonder why Americans are perceived as greedy and overweight.

I've seen this commercial too and find it to be obnoxious.  You forgot to mention that Heinz ketchup and other ingredients from the humongous burger are smeared all over her bratty fat face.

We have a local commercial for a hospital clinic.  It starts with a high pitch squeal that lasts for about 10 seconds.  It’s an awful decibel and really hurts my ears.  It then talks about surgery to help people with a certain hearing deficit.

I pass this optometrist's office on the way to my favorite hiking area and have to question their choice of sign font. It's not easily readable, especially when you're driving by on the opposite side of the street going the 25 mph speed limit. I joke to myself that they're giving you an eye exam before you even go inside!

"They say Diet Coke is a moms' drink."

This is palpably untrue and contradicted by Coke's own advertising.  (Remember the construction site workers from a couple of years ago?)

And what about the millions of all ages and demographics who drink it in the misguided belief that it will, in fact, help them lose weight.

People believe what they want to believe and do what they want to do. If they do something because an ad or celebrity told them to, that's on them. I don't give people passes for being brainless.

I remember the pig commercial.   The full length commercial has him turning into a little boy when he's walking up the front walk to his house.   So people objected to him hanging out the windows, no seat belt, etc., too.    I only saw the full length one a couple of time, and then the turning into a kid part was never shown again, or I didn't see it.

Oy, this Bounty commercial where the spilled coffee is going to ruin the winning lottery ticket...just pick up the ticket off the counter, THEN worry about wiping up the spill! It’s as dumb as the one where they’re wiping the spill TOWARD the phone instead of heading it off from the other direction!

The actor's line delivery and facial expressions are perfect.

And Maxwell is even funny when he says, "Oh, cool, thanks, Mrs. A," after she snaps him out of it and he realizes he's home.

But, holy crap, too much of the wee wee weeing!  It hurts my ears and angers my soul.

I heard him thank Mrs A but it was a talking pig! Hopefully he was just "wheeing" and not weeing! Yeah I just watched it again on youtube and  it was just the one where he says thanks, didn't see him get out, but he does have his seat belt on and only has his head and one arm? foot? out the window.

Is it too soon for me to say "that's just nuts" again?  I know I just said it a few pages ago, but it still fits.

What the heck is ball acne?  I have never heard of that.   And how would you know if you had it?   I couldn't see the forest for the tree?  Those balls are pretty well hidden.  Of course later on in life he probably would have to tuck them in one of his socks.  Gravity is a bitch.  Still, up until then, how would anyone ever know they had ball acne?

I didn't think he was being obnoxious. 

Then they would have thrown an absolute hissy fit back in the mid 70s when kids used to ride in a back of a pickup and/or station wagons without any restraints whatsoever.  It was common back then.  It doesn't make it right, it was a different time.

The pig commercial wasn't real,  I don't know why anyone would make more out of it then there was.

I know! In the front seat, in the back of the station wagon, in the back of the pickup..totally common! I don't know why people would get their knickers in a twist over a cute pig commercial.

For the past few days there’s been a commercial for Get Go where a guy is going around the store with a gun shooting at things, and towards people, where the gun turns one product into two.  With all these shootings in our country, how irresponsible is it to have someone shooting up a convenience store?  What are these ad agencies thinking.

I loved the Maxwell one!!  When my kids were being obnoxious, I'd just say "Maxwell!" (neither of them are named Maxwell) and they'd laugh and settle down.  I found a gif of Maxwell hanging out the window and sent it to my son for his birthday.  He told me it was a blast from the past.

I stopped watching SVU a million years ago but it annoys me to see Ice-T doing stupid commercials.  I don't think the Tide commercial is as bad as the one for Car Shield.  I hate those commercials regardless of who is in them but I especially hate his.  Do they really expect us to believe he uses Car Shield for his cars?  I understand they're a total rip off and I'm pretty sure Ice-T can afford to repair his own cars.

I agree. I don't mind IceT's Car Shield ads, but Tide? Just no. It is sad, and I wouldn't think Ice needs the money! I think SVU is still on, it's the beast that won't die, and I thought he was still on it too. I could be wrong.

I'm an Ice-T fan from L&O:SVU and I just like the man.  I remember when he was a rapper before he got into acting.  He at first was panned as not being able to act, but I gave him a chance and he started nailing it.  His snark on SVU is a breath of fresh air and what keeps me watching.  I don't mind this commercial at all.

Nor do I. The first time I saw his acting chops was in a movie called Surviving The Game based on the 1924 story The Most Dangerous Game by Richard Connell. I was impressed.

The Corona beer commercial with Snoop Dog.

Never liked him, based on the things he's said on social media.

It belies the genial guy presented in the commercial, spreading Corona beers to his "friends" on some Mexican beach.

Snoop is all dapper, smiling, looks very genial

Of course you don't expect a celebrity pushing a product on a commercial to represent his real personality but it's so opposite of what he can be like.

Corona or their ad agency must hope that people who see the commercial are unaware of Snoop's douchey behavior?

That's a first.  During one commercial break I saw the same Peyronie's disease commercial twice along with an erectile dysfunction commercial.  I was going to say what is up with that, but sadly given the last commercial there wasn't anything up with that.   I don't think I have ever seen a sequence of commercials like that before.   Usually it is Medicare commercial after Medicare commercial.
