Concerning the Newest Commercials. Is there any one that you dislike more than other

  1. mine is the lamisil one where the nasty little virus beaker crawls under the toenail and multiplies. every time i that comes on, i turn it off, because it makes me sick to my stomach.

    I can't STAND the Quizno's commercial that uses the rat-looking things to advertise it's sandwiches!! GROSS!!! TO me, that commercial CLEARLY states that if you eat Quiznos, you risk eating rat meat, because your sandwich will likely have some ground rat in it. YUCK!!!

    And the Axe body spray deodorant that had the worms and nasty mutating bugs and animals in it. I always turn it. It's sick.

    My TV broke, my TV broke :hatparty:

    So, now the house is lovely and quiet and I hope we never buy another TV.

    OOOh, steph, you are so lucky!!! I LONG for silence without a Tv. My husband, as soon as he walks in the door, turns the TV on. Even if he has NO intention of watching it. He LIKES the noise. I despise it.

    It took my husband awhile too. It has been a month and for a couple of weeks he would walk in and put in a cd . . he couldn't stand the quiet. But now he is used to it. Life is more peaceful.

    But I know by football season, we will have a tv. The only thing I may change is putting it downstairs in the basement so the sound doesn't permeate every thing we do upstairs and those who wish to may escape it.

    Habits are hard to break . . .

    I love Quiznos, but after watching that commercial I don't want to eat there for at least a month!

    I'm sick of the Herbal Essensce commercials.

    I hate to be eating and hear about "genital herpes outbreaks"

    I really hate to be eating and hearing about a "burning feminine itch"

    That stupid tampon-plugging-a-leaky-boat commercial is annoying. First off, the tampon would eventually leak, secondly, why would you take the whole box on the boat? There's no where to 'change' on a canoe!!

    Any beer commercials anymore. Heaven help it if the females in those commercials actually wore more than clothing scraps.

    Ads for the Man Show. Self explainatory.

    I feel the same way about all the commercials mentioned...guess I hadn't made the 'rat' link to the Quizno's commericlas though...just thought it was a cartoon like character.

    I'm disgusted by all the sexual innuendo on today's commercials...we can't let our kids alone with the TV much anymore. Even prime time shows yucchy stuff today.

    Anyone remember the one with the guy dancing behind the girl and making those thrusting motions towards her?? I was so disgusted to see this on TV I complained to the network. Can't remember who put the commercial on, (forgot as quickly as I could...LOL) but I noticed they cut that scene out shortly following. So I guess complaining DOES get us somewhere sometimes....

    Our TV broke (well actually the antenna) a while back to, so we've been TV free - it's GREAT!

    I do remember disliking those stupid "Gotta go, Gotta go, Gotta go right now" commercials. (some bladder med or something, can't remember)
