I'll add the old Canadian Tire d-bag to boost the Can-con.

I'd like to see the Hamburger Helper hand shoved into the Arby's oven mitt.

Roughly.

Without lube.

Meh - I find the talking babies amusing.

Everything GEICO has ever done and the Progressive Insurance twat should be in the top 5.

Replace the e-trade babies with the overstock.com lady and you'll have a decent list.

No way are the Sponge Monkeys anything but completely awesome and well reasoned sandwich spokesthings.

I liked the first commercial with the bee, when he said, "I have returned to you, my flower, a changed bee." Then he went commercial.

But this list is too full of recent stuff. Many awful commercials were done in the fifties, sixties and seventies, as well. Ronnie "Mount Rushmore" Reagan hawked Chesterfields. And speaking of cigarettes, there were the Virginia Slims "You've come a long way baby" ads.

My main problem with commercials is that they eat into the shows at an accelerated rate. One hour shows used to run 48 minutes. Now they average a tad over 42. Battlestar Galactica was close to 37.


ecmoRandomNumbers: Everything GEICO has ever done

I sort of like the Gecko's doofus boss. He does ads here in New Mexico for another insurance company, and I always laugh when I see him. All other Geico and Progrsessive ads should be destroyed.

I have a theory that the empire carpet guy flew headfirst into a wave of molten rock while testdriving a new dimension-skipping jetpack, and that somewhere deep below finland they have him suspended in a membranous sac full of wires and tubes, and when a new commercial is needed they trip a circuit that leads to his vocal chords and out comes the word "Today."

I have independent verification on the membranous sac thing.

Those were also awesome.

I wouldn't call them amusing most of the time, but they aren't actively annoying. When you see the commercial for the 100th time it's annoying, but that's true for any commercial so I don't think that counts.

Good advertising should leave you with a question

Specifically, this question:

What if everything you ever wanted...
CAME IN A ROCKET CAN?

The Southwest Airline baggage handlers are flying up the chart. If they come up with another commercial on par with all their other ones and I would put them at #1.
 
2010-03-22 10:09:49 PM  
^ Just plain creepy.
 
2010-03-22 10:09:59 PM  
This list is crap. The talking E*Trade babies should be #1 and that old Six Flags man ROCKS.

Came to make sure #5 (the dancing 6 Flags guy) made it. Probably should have been higher on the list, though.
 
2010-03-22 10:10:44 PM  
Oh shiat! I forgot, list FAILS HARD without those dumbass Geico Cavemen.

Have you seen the one where they rip their shirts open and have "bags fly free" letter by letter on their chest? Holy crap I hate that commercial.

OH man, yes.


I'm not gonna be surprised if the next commercial features one of the bag handlers strait out farking a bag while the other ones cheer him on while waiting in line.

It gives off that kinda creepy vibe.

I've only seen one, and it was immediately after I paid $20 to check a single bag on Delta... so maybe I was just in a position to be very very very receptive to the ad at that point.

Oh, and that E-Surance chick. Along with the Progressive chick. Dear f--king God, I hate them both so much.

Taco Bell dog got pretty damn annoying too, but eh, I'm hesitant to speak ill of the dead. Not hesitant enough to delete these sentences, but enough to mention it.
