    They're so, so awful. I don't think I would ever use ChoiceHotels to begin with, but if I ever thought about it those obnoxious ads would dissuade me.

    My daughter watches Disney Channel a lot and there is a cereal commercial advertising the Pokémon cards inside. The kid yells Pokémon in one long, irritating scream. They show it frequently, too. It’s annoying as hell and makes me want to throw something at tv. I absolutely hate it.

    I hate that stupid AT&T ad where they say "Just ok is not ok". Those drive me nuts.

    Don’t EVEN bring up the one ad(no clue what it was for it has been so long) where the woman just goes “chase...chase...chase...” while lying on a couch. Ugh. THAT one is annoying as HECK! I don’t even remember what that one was for!

    I can handle the hump-day as from Geico just fine, as it is slightly funny. The pig one is okay, but I don’t want to hear it every time it comes on.

    Another breed lately that gets on my nerves a bit is that Sprint commercial with the robots and Bo Jackson, and for that matter another one for a product/service I can't recall but which has a guy introducing his friends to "Junior Bot" or something to that effect. There's just something inherently WRONG with commercials that use creepy-^$$ Erector-set robots with rubber faces who act like they escaped from an old condemned amusement park to try to sell you things; it didn't work when Old Spice tried it a few years back, it doesn't work now.

    DOGTV makes it sound like leaving dogs to take a nap at home while you work your butt off is a terrible and inhumane thing to do.

    All those advertisement jingles with thosr handclapping and whistle FX. It freaking annoys me, it's sooo 2013-ish it needs to stahp.

    Also, I sorta hate the Grammarly commercial with those fake testimonials. Yeah, I know there's some ' fineprint ' which states these are actors, but it makes it even worse imo.

    Ok not a specific commercial, but in general. I hate for TV shows the advertisement for an episode flat out lies to you, or what they show has nothing to do with that episode at all.

    Case in point, i watch 9-1-1 on Fox. Good show. In the episode before the latest one, we see Chimney (his nick name) be stabbed by his girlfriends vengeful ex before going after her. She is also the sister of another firefighter. That is how it ends. We see two different promos. One shows a funeral procession for a fire fighter. The other shows the team trying to save a kid from a house fire (part of a massive fire i think) and a C130 dropping water on the out of control fire. The stuff from the second promo is not in it at all. I am guessing it is a few episodes away in another episode. The first part is in the new episode that just aired, but was not Chimney's funeral.

    What happened is Chimney is bleeding out and we see his backstory. After his mom died he lived with a friend who knew them. After saving people from a bar fire he and his friend become fire fighters. His friend dies saving a woman and that is the funeral we see. It is his friend.

    Yeah i don't want stuff spoiled, but also if you show footage, make it from that episode. It is interesting to see backstories. This is the third one we've gotten so far. I did laugh as it opened with him in 2005 trying to get a loan for an idea he has... a blanket with sleeves. Yes he came up with the idea for the snuggie before it came out but never got the loan for it.

    Apparently it comes out next week.

    I hate loud commercials. Ones like the Iphone one with the loud music and wild life footage. Dear god is it loud. Same with the subway one with the chicken and fritos sub. Instant hate.

    ^Yep. I pretty much just hate commercials now. They're just inconvenient interruptions to whatever I'm watching, and I can't stand that.
