Television Commercials You Are Hating, Summer, 2017 Edition
There are two I despise presently. One has a young woman who spits a mouthful of milk into the sink while looking at her phone. She didn't do it because the milk is spoiled; rather, she did it because her credit report is not up-to-date. I just want to slap her across the room.
The other one is an advertisement for a mattress which features two particularly inane comments. The people offering testimonials are either late Millennial or Generation Z. The first stupid line comes from the overly enthusiastic male: "This mattress is dangerously comfortable!" What the fuck does that mean? Not to be outdone, the equally grey-matter-challenged female utter this gem: "When I get into bed, I literally say "ahh!" ::: face palm :::
In both commercials I do not recall the names of the company or products, so major fail there.

The worst commercial of all time continues to run several goddamn YEARS after its debut. It's an Auto Club ad that has several "real people" telling how fucking wonderful the AAA is. There are a couple of screechy-voiced frauen; an old bitch with the worst black dye job in the world and who has the shaky speech of a person in the last stages of Parkinson's disease; and my least favorite, an ugly, wizened little black female with TERRIBLE teeth who speaks a semi-understandable patois and says, "dey tole me wat due price was gonna be an I tole dem to go back and REE-check becauseIcouldnotbelieveit" (said as one word).
I've been a member of the Auto Club since they jumpstarted Jesus's oxcart, but if they don't dump that fucking ad pretty damn soon, I'm going to start changing my flats myself.

R6 — The chubby latino guy ("what are YEW waiting for?") has been replaced in that ad. They now have a very nice, low-key black dude saying "what are you waiting for?" in a controlled, modulated voice.
That scrawny black bitch "becauseIdidn'tbelieve it" seems to get uglier and more unlikeable by the day. FUCK, I wish they'd retire that awful commercial and send that cunt to the nearest grease fire.

Actually right now, it's a local commercial in the San Jose, CA area. It is for a place called 'Wheels & Deals They're ultra-right wing, super Christian, Republican brothers. The ads filmed on their carlot aren't too bad, but lately they have taken to doing ads at partner businesses, usually restaurants. Not only are the ads trite, they use them to promote their personal political,& religious agenda. Usually there is a little sign behind them on the wall about prayer, being American or something to that effect..

Somebody at Liberty Mutual decided it was a great idea to pull out the old, extremely I-want-to-reach-through-the-screen-and-strangle-the-bitch annoying commercial where this 20-something airhead talks about how much she loves her car, so much so that she named it Brad. Not only is this extremely weird, but she details how "Brad" has been with her through thick and thin--multiple boyfriends and jobs, etc.--and therefore has this loving bond with her car. This by itself is just fucking weird. Then to top it off, she says that when the insurance company gave her a check for a complete replacement, she drops this ersatz passion instantly. What the fuck is this shit? Aaaaahhhh!!!!

The one for some phone service that features two dreary frumpy fraus sitting next to a pool, watching the "kiddos" in the pool. One frau squawks, "NO SPLASHING!" (The fraus' useless, chubby husbands are in the pool, but you can't count on them). Anyway, the fraus talk about the cell service and one says something about how at least some bad decisions aren't permanent. Then you see they both have awful huge "Spring Break 1999" tattoos on their back.
The funny thing is, the way the camera pans back, we are shown that their gaze is on actually on hubbies and kiddos. I wonder if thats deliberate! Certainly makes me glad I'm not a frau.

On the other hand, I love that ELO's "Living Thing," a song I love but hardly ever hear, is the soundtrack for a different car commercial I heard this morning a couple of times during Premier League Football.

Leesa has an adult voiceover 'artist' who rocks a condescending 3 year old girl's voice throughout. I am not a child, and I refuse to be talked to as if I'm one.
Sepira's aiming for meth addicts, and scores big with the target speed freaks with hyper noise and high pressure throughout. Strain 3 fuzz-tone speed metal guitars through a 3" speaker backing up a high pressure voiceover guy who orders: YOU NEED THIS MATTRESS!!! No, I need sleep, now fuck off.

WTF does that even mean?! Is this dealership giving away their cars???!!
All the people speak in that odd combo of PR/New Yawk accents. New Yorkers will know what I mean, It's such an extremely grating ad. One guy's voice is so garbled, he sounds as if he's speaking a foreign language. This commercial is so tacky in reminds me of a Time Warner TV ad which ran a few years ago, with people in a pool and that awful Reggaeton music, there was a similar fat guy talking in the same garbled English.

I have to go back to the Liberty Mutual commercials. "Do they want you driving around in 3/4 of a car?" Yes. Yes, they do because that will keep people off the roads who are stupid enough to drive their brand new car (Brad #2?) into a tree. Clearly, these commercials are directed at people who have absolutely no understanding of how insurance works. In the interest of full disclosure, someone needs to let the nitwit viewers know that their insurance company does not love them.
KFC commercials where they seem to think that having a different idiotic Colonel Sanders for every type of chicken they sell is necessary. And they pick the most annoying people to play that role.
Any kind of pharmaceutical ad. Because of these horrid commercials people think they know as much about meds and doctors and so demand to be prescribed the newest thing on the market. Then they find out their insurance doesn't cover it and the manufacturer doesn't really want to give it away with their Patient Assistance Plans. Pharmaceutical companies and attorneys should not be allowed to advertise on tv.
Those fucking ASPCA commercials showing abused dogs and cats while Sarah McLachlan sings Angel in the background. First of all, no one wants to see abused animals and if you do, then go directly to hell because you are not a human being. Secondly, the song is about Jonathan Melvoin's death by heroin OD. Wow.

I don't watch any CBS shows except Amazing Race and Survivor - all of the rest I find unwatchable. I've never seen more than 3 minutes of The Big Bang Theory cause it looks dumb and unfunny. Anyway, I hate the commercial for this new show, especially when the kid says "think, monkey, think". Ugh.

"these are packed in fruit juice, let me ask you something, would you put your fish in water or something that has water in it?"

The fruit cup commercial is one of many in which the person using the product comes across like an asshole. I've noticed this weird trend lately. Why would a company choose to make its customers look bad? Shouldn't it make the people who don't use the product look bad instead?
Because I don't want to buy your fruit cups if it's going to make me a condescending asshole like the woman in your commercial.

I hate this actress. I hate the shit-eating smirk puts on her face as she presents her salmon dish.
I hate Home Chef for hiring her.
I hate people who use these "meal-in-a-box" companies. Typically they are portrayed in the advertising as clueless millennials.

No one said the fucking commercial was deep, let alone profound, at least I didn't. This ad will work around the world because there is no dialog, now do you comprehend? Amazon is a global ecommerce company.
I work in advertising, on print ads, not on commercials. I can say with 100% confidence, this TV commercial works. It's pleasant with attractive people and the dog is cute. The baby is clearly not afraid of her lion toy, putting the same mane on the dog, calmed her down. How simple is the damn ad, you didn't get it?
Are you also against Asians in TV commercials? WTF? Everyone buys on Amazon and the company wants to get that message across. Racist much?! You just seem to be itching for an argument.
The song is a bit annoying, the ad works and that's all that matters in advertising. The ad was brought back because people liked it.

Not triggered at all. It's my field and I know what I'm talking about.
First off, the women talking about their phone plans are too young to have been in college when the Naked Eyes remake of "Always Something There To Remind Me" was released, they'd be well into their 50s by now. They definitely don't look that old. The song was released 34 years ago! The way the song is used, it's assumed that was the song during their Springbreak when they got the awful back tats.
If these ad agencies are trying to appeal to specific demographics, they really need people who know what they're doing, people who are capable of doing actual research. Bad TV commercials, and print ads, remind me of that cable series with Steve Coogan, where he played an ad exec who was dealing with clueless workers, most didn't really know their craft, yet the CD was always letting those idiots slide. Good show but likely not interesting to people not in the field.

R247 I work in advertising, too, and here's why I have a problem with that Amazon commercial. One of the primary objectives of advertising is brand awareness and recognition. In this respect, the commercial succeeds, because everyone knows it's an ad for Amazon.
However, what the commercial fails to do, in my opinion and my opinion only, is make the viewer want to be part of the Amazon experience. And here's why:
It take a realistic event- the baby being afraid of the family dog - and creates a completely unrealistic resolution to the problem. There isn't a family in the world - in the universe - in any galaxy - who would look to buying a synthetic lion's mane from Amazon for their dog to help their baby get over her fear of dogs. Just ain't gonna happen.
It promotes the notion that the solution to every problem is a smartphone, a website, and a few clicks, which immediately detaches the viewer.
It tries far too hard to be hip - the horrific, millennial-voiced singer, the oh-so-westernized Asian family, and once again, the suggestion that today's with-it families just use electronic solutions to solve non-electronic problems. And any marketing or advertising person worth their salt will tell you that when you try too hard to create a "hip" advertisement, you get backlash from truly "hip" consumers.
Yes, the commercial makes you remember Amazon, but it reinforces the idea that people who need to use Amazon to solve a simple problem are really annoying and stupid.

Ironically, I feel this TV ad is not "hip" at all. I actually find it harkens back to another era. Besides, if you are already using Amazon, if you're intelligent enough and satisfied with their service, who the hell would allow a TV commercial to change that? I personally don't think advertising works for truly intelligent people.
You are putting way too much thought into what is essentially a very simple TV ad, which is essentially about Amazon selling more than just books and entertainment media. R267 put it very succinctly.
Westernized Asian family? Most upwardly mobile young Asians are literally more modern than most Americans of the same age group. You clearly don't know many young Asians. Yes, ppl DO actually use electronic solutions to solve lots of problems. One of my close friends is agoraphobic, he runs his business from his home, he orders everything, even food, via his computer or cell. I cannot remember the last time he left his block! He's lucky to have a backyard, otherwise he'd never get fresh air.
How about the fact that hipsters think they are beyond getting their information via commercials? Do you think they are sitting around watching TV ads? Hipsters are of a generation which thinks they invented the wheel, they are literally too hip for the room! They are beyond listening to TV ads to 'curate' their lifestyles! Lifestyles, btw, which are mined from many past generations, but that's for a whole other discussion.

Also they seem to have edited out the scene where they have filled a bathtub with the cereal. I guess not that many customers think it's a good idea to waste about $200 worth of Cheerios down the drain, so to speak. Absurd.

Just when the "symbolically adopt an endangered tiger"ad has hardened my normally philanthropic heart (especially for animals), along comes the "won't you symbolically adopt an endangered elephant?" ad. No, you emotionally manipulative spokesperson for a sham charity that spends 50% of contributions on your own salaries, 20% on advertising, and 10% on operating costs with the remaining 20% presumably helping endangered animals, I will not be moved by your faux concern inducements to choose between taking action or feeling guilty.
I'd rather see an ad that says "With your generous gift, you can symbolically adopt a bean counter, marketer, or spokesman of a company who makes their money by imploring you to continue their existence."

R304 It's a national commercial, but I've only seen it aired during the ABC news hour that airs super early in the morning. They show it almost every day. The best part of the commercial is at the end, when the crusty old dyke says, "I love this colostomy bag so much, I give it more than an 'atta boy.' I give it a 'woo hoo!'" Then she pumps her fist in the air. It is to die.

I hate the song they use in the VistaPrint ad with the hot photographer guy who needs business cards.
But then there is a commercial that uses ELO's "Livin' Thing" and another new one that uses Harry Nilsson's "Jump Into The Fire", and those make me so happy when they come on. The only problem is I have no idea what product or service either of them are being used to advertise because I just look away from the TV and sing along to the song.

Did you notice in the Nutella commercial that they only spread it on whole grain products? That's because the company was called out for marketing Nutella on bread/waffles as a healthy breakfast when it's nothing but chocolate, sugar and nuts. So now they only use brown grainy bread in their ads - the healthy part is basically the fiber in that bread.

Ad for some phone or phone app - not even sure because I zone out when this is on, except for the song playing. On this phone (or app) you can write words or draw onscreen and send them. They show couples being cutesy drawing dumb, juvenile pictures on their phone screens and sending them to each other. At the end, one person gets a written message that says "I love you, too". Another silly reason for people to be hypnotized by their phones instead of speaking with the person directly.
The background song is a creepy one I recognize from an episode of I Love Lucy, called "Similau".

Not a current commercial, but it was in heavy rotation last year. It's for Dove Oxygen Moisture volumizing shampoo, there's a silly song playing as a woman is looking into a mirror and trying to fluff up her 'flat, thin' stringy hair.

These damn ad agencies no longer even try to fool the public that the damn product they're pushing actually works!

Guy ignores his boss's phone call while out with his wife. "I'm loving this date night thing", she coos. She'll love it even more when hubby is fired and she has to go back to work on the pole.
Then the one where two friends are out for an hour lunch and one puts his phone into his glass of water. Watch the other guy. The reaction and timing is waaaay off, he doesn't even acknowledge the phone in the water until they cut back and then it's too much too late. I would put money that they found those actors on craigslist or something, the new trend to get away from SAG actors to save mega money (no residuals, all buyouts).

Don't be a moron, someone can hate a commercial or the concept, but to rant about the performers in a commercial is more than absurd, it's like hating an actor or actress because they portrayed a serial killer. These people are actors, they didn't create the commercials, let alone the dialog, they are simply being hired to play a part.

The commercial where two old broads are waiting in the checkout line at the pharmacy behind a teenage girl who has her hair dyed purple and one of the old bags gets inspired with a stupid look on her face, runs off and comes back with several boxes of hair dye.

R477, if commercials bother you to that extent, well, perhaps you need to step away from TV for awhile, it's a fucking commercial for Chrissakes! Sure it's a damn annoying commercial, but there IS a mute button!
Seems the ad agencies don't give a crap how the viewers react to their commercial, as long as people remember their ads and there is some sort of reaction, positive or negative, they do not care. At least the viewers are talking about their commercials.
For this particular ad, I think they picked an unattractive child actress to further annoy viewers, she's not easy on the eyes. This actress is equally annoying and repulsive on "Better Things".

The Audible commercial with the woman stuck in traffic with her boss and pretending to laugh at his jokes. The laughs are silent at first, then she suddenly lets out a blood-curdling fake scream (basic attention-grabbing advertising tactic) with a crazy look on her face. To me, this is right up there with the commercial about the frau at the business lunch who thought her co-worker's phone wallpaper was a real spider.

I was going to mention this ad. I actually think it's clever. Heart disease, lung cancer and other smoking related cancers are worldwide health issues. This ad likely cost much less for the US health agency to use than pay some local NYC ad agency to produce a new one.
This ad is much better than the disgusting US produced ads showing a man hacking away with a bad phlegmy cough, the woman in bed who is so ill she needs someone to turn her on her side and the other vile ads showing people with half their faces missing. The worst ad was the one with the once pretty blond woman who ended up with half her chin missing, no teeth, a hole in her neck and bald from her cancer treatments, she endured all that, then, she died.

Saw an ad for a HR software company called 'bamboohr". The ad itself is fine but the actress in it wears the cheapest looking wig I've seen in a long time. They obviously didn't have a hair stylist on this shoot cause you they would have seen that the hairline on this chick looks really tacky - did they stick that thing on with gum?

There's an ad for a product called Magicbax - it's for women whose earring holes are big and if they wear post earrings, they hang down. The voice-over makes me cringe cause it plays on the vanity of the viewer - they use lines like "you'll feel more beautiful wearing your earrings", "when your earrings are sitting at the normal position, it'll bring out your true beauty". All that psychology over a set of earring backs, goddamnit!

The Huggies Pull-Ups commercial. “We’re gonna do this together! We’re gonna stick to the plan, do everything we can, to make it easy and fun. It’s time to potty, everyone! They’re designed like underwear. Special friends make ’em fun to wear! So, boys and girls, sing out loud: I’m a big kid now!” I keep waiting for someone - ANYONE - to remake it as a Depends/adult diaper ad.

Not sure if this one is still playing, but the Sears ad where the husband and wife are in the kitchen and the husband says "It's gonna be another scorcher!" And she says "are you gonna call Sears about the ac?" The husband says "I'll call tomorrow." And the wife says "You'll call NOW." And the husband meekly takes the phone and says "I'll call now." OMG! GROW A SPINE, GUY! Does your wife not know how to operate the telephone? Is her hand broken? She clearly does not have laryngitis since she just yelled at you! I fucking HATE commercials where the wife is a big bully and the husband is an idiot who takes it.

R560, blame the idiots at the ad agencies for perpetuating the stereotype of the loud harpy pushy wife.
Very few of my female relatives, and friends, are as ridiculous as the stereotypes perpetuated on TV and especially here on DL. Some of you guys simply need to say you hate women.

For men who hate women, you sure are incredibly obsessed with them. Think about it. I reckon most of the gay men here who despise women are either young and confused about their own sexuality or bitter eldergays.

R561, Nick Drake was wonderful. My older siblings were into his music. My brother was shocked to hear Nick's music on a TV ad, especially considering Nick had been dead almost 26 years when the ad appeared in 1999. Many music fans thought they discovered a 'new' singer, boy were they shocked!
Pink Moon, a song about death, used in a TV ad, it just proved so many who work in advertising are utterly clueless!
I saw it written and I saw it say A pink moon is on its way And none of you stand so tall Pink moon gonna get ye all

Once advertisers learned that women make more than 90% of the shopping decisions per household, it was “Bye screechy wife, hello dopey husband.”
If a modern era ad features a dummy, it is always the man who needs saving from the wife.

A current car ad with a female voiceover. Her voice so 'fake sexy', very affected and she's talking so slooooow, which is one of my pet peeves, people who talk slow.
It sounds like that redhead actress Kate Walsh, but she's putting on a super annoying voce. Wish I could remember the car brand, but I can't.

I don't know whose voice it is in the current Facebook TV ad apologizing for unspecified past misdeeds, but that guy should meet the girl whose voice is used in the Panera ads about "clean food". They have unctuous, wistful, plaintive voices in common -- they must look like the children with saucer-sized dark eyes in Margaret Keane's paintings.
