Quaker Oats Cereal TV commercial from 1972:

Original script portion: "Let's get Mikey. he hates everything. He likes it! Hey, Mikey!"

Paraphrase I hear & hate the most: "Mikey likes it. He likes everything."

FTA:  "A Subway sandwich is a quiet and shameful thing; its jingle should not be so farking cheery about it."

Perfection.

I'll add ANY car dealer that takes any song, rewords it to ramrod their (usually hyphenated) name into the lyrics, then repeats 2 1/2 bars 4-5 times in a 30 second spot as my most hated.

I have seen the FarmersOnly ad many times, but I always mute the ads, so I have never heard the jingle. Do I dare listen to it when I see it again?

Haven't watched broadcast TV in years, so I'm behind on many commercials.

I do, however, follow hockey, and I stream games through the NHL website. During commercial breaks, they'll go to an innocuous (and thankfully quiet) NHL logo screen to avoid rebroadcasting local commercials, but they still air national ads from companies who have paid for it.

This results in the same goddamn 2 commercials repeating all game, every game, for weeks at a time, before the ad cycle starts again. Here's the latest one that started out annoying, and through repetition, now makes me stabby:

You're right about the jingle but I give this one a pass because it's a refreshing change from the steady stream of ads featuring dad as a bumbling idiot.

For decades they flooded the airwaves, some stations would play the damn commercial three times in the same commercial segment!  Drove me nuts!

Oh sure. The actual content of the commercial is fine. But per the topic at hand, I feel the accompanying music is the farking worst.

This is a local ad, but he's been running them for years.  If you live in or around Toronto, Canada you've seen this.  Also, I'm so, so sorry.

Well I would have to disagree, Cal Worthington in the Southern California was hilarious. Never made me want to buy his cars, but his "dog spot" was always an adventure. Was he wrestling with tigers, sure, was he riding elephants, yeah of course, sticking his head in a Orca mouth, why the fark not?

Tops is that smacked-out version of "One Is the Loneliest Number" in the Escalade ad; it sucks worse than the original song, and I can't figure out what message Cadillac is trying to deliver.
The other ISN'T EVEN A REAL JINGLE. It's that farking guitar crash cord and WHOO! at the end of that  Tripadviser ad with the goddamn owl.

I knew a guy whose dad wrote jingles for local ads. One radio spot he did for a mattress store ended with "we put people to sleep!" It didn't air for long.

The regional radio commercial jingles from my childhood are forever etched into my brain. Anyone who lived in Northeast PA in the 70s through the 90s might remember:

You can talk turkey
For chicken feed
Cos a little bit a scratch
Is all you need
(peep peep)
The Little Cheaper Dealer


and...

I'm a lucky girl
Hooray, oh boy
Look at my diamond
It came from Van Scoy
My boyfriend bought it
Saved lots of money too
Van Scoy's the Diamond King
Yes, he's the man for you

He had a branch in Reno for awhile and would run intros from his old commercials tacked on to the beginning of his current spot.  It was quite entertaining.

One of our local sports stations runs a few ads ad nauseum (no pun intended), including a copier dealer which has a jingle that goes:

"If your fax is jammed or your copies look sloppy
dial 602-PRO-COPY."

The other one is the background music that was once accompanied by the following jingle:

"You won't go wrong (you'll never go wrong)
at Right Toyota"

That gives me nightmares of "Call the Glass Doctor, we'll fix your panes."
