    After seeing that stupid Geico commercial where the guy takes the cavemen out to dinner for about the millionth time, I've decided that there's a ton of TV commercials that just need to GO AWAY!!! As a Communications student, I know that creative advertising doesn't just fall out of the sky, but c'mon, that caveman has been ordering the "roast duck with the mango salsa" for the past two years.

    What's on your commercial hit list?:ninja:

    I hate the Jello wigglin commercial. I also hate the taco bell "good to go" hand gesture commercials. That is all for now.

    The Volkswagen "Fast" commercials. Ugh.

    I don't think there's a person on this earth that would be sad to see the Taco Bell commercials go. Have they ever had a good commercial?

    The Geico cavemen at dinner commercial is pretty good...it's just old.

    i heard a radio commercial this morning that i feel falls into this category.

    it was basically a St. Patty's Day commercial with a guy with an Irish accent looking for someone who can play the bag pipes. so a hispanic person pipes and says he can play that bag pipes. to make a long story short, they wind up playing La Cucaracha on bagpipes and advertising Corona beer.

    dont taint my St. Patty's Day fun with Corona and we wont taint Cinco de Mayo with Guiness adverts. :)

    This may pertain to MA and southern NH only, but the Bernie and Phyl commercials should be banned.

    Agreed. I'm a sox fan and I get Boston Local channels and NESN through DirecTV and those Bernie and Phyl commercials get really annoying.

    How can you say that about Bob !? That confidence, that new golf swing, that winning smile. He's "living large and steppin' easy", get off his back Jack ! :p

    The Guiness commercials are lame. They should use real people.

    count me in on the 'good to go' taco bell commercials... ugh. Also, how about those awful jack in the box 'serloin' commercials? And Yellawood, too. What's wrong with that guy?

    I basically hate all commercials that are preachy, talk down to me, or generally insult my intelligence. Unfortunately that's almost all of them.

    I would remove many many online gambling and casino commercials. They must have a ton of money as they run them all the time!

    I've always hoped someone would say that to me seriously in a real world situation so I can punch them in the mouth.
