Toyota and Telus as mentioned. Toyota because they are played at the front and back of nearly every commercial set on Sportsnet during the games.

What about those fricken' Montana's Steakhouse ads with the talking moose/dear heads. Those drive me nuts.

The one ad that instantly popped into my head when I read this thread title is "Monkey Sub".

they were talking about bell HD receivers, saying that its the same feed they use in toronto to review NHL goals...and I was thinking, is that really something you want to be advertising

I also hate the calgaryjobshop.ca ads...they drive me insane, espicially the one with the father having his kid post the ad. I wanna smack the crap out him and his kid

I hate the subway ones on the radio, which of these sounds is not someone gorging on a sub. If anyone makes those sounds they should be told to leave the room because it is disgusting.

Pretty much any ad for a bank, oh yea bank with us and you can retire when you are 35, sure

I have just watched the Koodo mobile commercial about 3 times and I'd already add it to the list.

(Koodo is a new budget spinoff from Telus)

About 98% of the ads shown here in North America, they're mostly just loud and obnoxious...the only ones I can actually stand are those with some actual creativity & humor behind them...The Plaza theater in Kensington sometimes has screenings for The World's Greatest Commercial's...there really are some funny commercials out there, unfortunately none here.

THat new Volkswagon ad. I know its clever because the guy is "mysteriously" honking the horn, giving the car human characteristics because that guy with the alarm just bought it. But do they have to keep honking the damn horn over and over.

A car alarm or people beeping their car horns in parking lots is annoying enought. Now i have to hear it in my house, over and over while I scramble to hit mute.

Whoever designed that add may have thought they were clever but man did they miss the boat. I think they just annoyed a large group of people.

I for one will never buy a volkswagon ever again just because of how annoying that add is.

Advise for future commercial makers, don't try to be clever by having a baby cry on and off for 30 seconds. Thats also a sound not many people enjoy hearing if they don't have too.

And well Telus, worst company in canada. And yes all their ad's have been terrible for a long time. Actually ever time I see or hear one, they keep reminding me I will never buy another product or service from them ever again. Nothing like a good consistent reminder.

Call 1 - 800 - 267 - 2001 ALARM FORCE!

I hated those commercials on the radio, but I hate them even more now that I have to hear AND see Joel Matlin's mug on TV. I guess however, their marketing team should be congratulated because it's certainly the only home alarm company whose 1-800 number I know.

I'm with the crowd that hates the Telus commercials, namely the bird ones.

F'n annoying. And of course anything with the Panago guy.

One of many who is too boring; thinks that there should be rules regarding grammar in custom user titles, and also makes moderators wonder if there is a charachter limit here. I mean come on- you would think that would be a limitation in the software

I am presently boycotting Panago specifically because of that annoying construction worker guy.

The David Suzuki Enmax commercials make me want to burn paint.

Mini-mini-mini-Mini Wheats!

OT: Anyone know who does that kickass commercial where the chick's daydreaming about her trip to Brazil, but when she can't afford it starts dreaming about Edmonton instead? That made me laugh out loud the first time I saw it.
