I used to see this repeat two times (one after the other) to fill the whole commercial slot. It was very annoying.

EDIT: I actually like that comcast commercial. >.>

My list would have to include those which tell me something like "four easy payments of....." and give me a price that I probably wouldn't want to pay, let alone find easy. Others include those which make unwarranted assumptions (e.g. "you've seen it on TV")

One I particularly like, however can be found here (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TnzFRV1LwIo).

Hate those, but most of the other comcast commercials are awesome, like the slowskies and the rabbit.

Actually, that company did sell a hemorrhoid relief product called FREEdHem Hemorrhoid Cream, but it was taken off the shelves. I wonder why... Maybe it was because HeadOn and all of its associated products don't actually do anything.

There are only four main ingredients in HeadOn:

iris versicolor - 12 parts per trillion
white bryony - 12 parts per trillion
potassium dichromate - 6 parts per billion
wax
Oh, and potassium dichromate is a known carcinogen. Good thing it's only included in this product in very minute quantities.

The Geico commercials where they actually show the money you could save by switching to Geico as a stack of bills with googly eyes.

Having seen some of the Microsoft "I'm a PC" commercials, I'd have to say those are the ones which bug me the most, of late.

Given that I don't watch TV, I'm pretty non-impacted by whatever garbage advertisers decide to inflict on the general public.

Poor fools...

Oh yeah, those Microsoft commercials with kids doing stuff on them always make me think "Kids can do anything if you teach them. The fact that they learn fast makes this point very weak."

HeadOn (et al)
Any commercial with Vince from ShamWow (have you seen the one for chopper thing? "You're gonna love my ....!")
Virtually any locally produced commercial
All the Aaron's commercials (which look locally produced)
Detox foot pad commercials (most even have the audacity to claim that they even remove asbestos (!))*

Commercials I DON'T hate:
Hulu's Superbowl ad ("Because we're aliens, and that's how we roll.")
Discovery Channel's "The World is Awesome" commercials (I think everyone loved those ones)
The Geico "Gecko" commercials
(That's all I can think of off the top of my head...)

That stupid geko talking lizard one... I change the channel, or switch the TV off...
It doesn't make any sense to me for them to run an advert that makes people want to switch the TV off.. but what do I know.. I'm not in the advertising business...
