Currently, I gotta say, this one has to be the absolute worst. Where'd they find this guy? They really need to fire the casting director. Just awful.

Not sure if it’s nationally run, but we have these annoying J.G. wentworth commercials with people lip sinking to opera...

“Call J.G. Wentworth, 877-Cash-Now!

It’s so damn annoying.

anything to do with Geico or Liberty Mutual.

They play those commercials 1000 times a day so even if I'm only watching an hour or two I see the same commercial a dozen times...

The Capital One commercial with Jennifer Garner whispering in a library annoys the living hell out of me. Nothing has annoyed me to this extent since the incessantly-repeated Cialis commercials of a few years ago.

I didn't mind earlier Liberty Mutual commercials like the cute girl who named her car Brad, but the latest ones with "'witness protection' guy" are awful.

The Verizon guy. I want to shoot the TV whenever that spot runs. Guess he's part of the millennial generation or the free shit generation. Whatever. He still can't touch what this guy did for Bell Atlantic/Verizon commercials back in the 90's.

This for me as well. I have to hit the mute button every time it starts. A room full of crying babies would be less annoying.

Worse than Flo, Jamie.

Which leads me to another subject. Eons ago, the advertising people figured out that women do most of the household purchasing. Because of this, most commercials are aimed at women, and constantly make men look like blithering idiots.

I have no idea who that awful actor is, but he's on several of the commercials on one of the stations I watch locally, because of their large number of old western movies. I finally had to DVD the movies to avoid him and then fast forward thru his stuff. Yuck!

Now it's a weekly thing-I sit down and set the DVD to catch the ones I want.

HA! That was pretty good. I miss the Like A Rock Chevy commercials.
