The Credit Karma apartment commercial is getting on my nerves. When she says "I knooooowwwwww!!!!" it makes me cringe.

Ram truck commercial where the bull kneels down like Hunter Hearst Helmsley to allow it to pass on the dirt road.

Truck commercials in general annoy me. The twangy voice over, the portrayal of the heroic manly man doing manly things because his truck is so manly, etc. I know that I'm not their target market, and they must be effective, but still...

But this bull one is just so bad. Laughably bad. The CGI is terrible. The ad agency must have been told that Napoleon on wheels needed new things to conquer because he's defeated all of the steel beams, loads of gravel, and tree stumps in his empire.

The RAM commercials are especially bad. Soon the voiceover will be in such a deep low tone humans won't be able to hear it.

Charmin Ultra Soft, with the bears all fondling the toilet paper then the mom suddenly says "Ok, this is getting a little weird."

No, that line of commercials started weird, it's not 'just getting' there.

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'm getting pretty f'ing sick of mortgages to go or Alpine mortgages commercials. Each one is stupider than the last, and they're on all the time. It's almost as if they're catering to the lowest IQ. Like their ads are screaming that if you're amused by their stupid ass commercials, you're probably also dumb enough to pay an exorbitant amount of interest on a second mortgage to go fund that jet ski you really want.

I think it’s a Scotia or Rogers commercial. Couple has recently moved, wife is very pregnant, they are on their couch blabbing about their future or whatever. Last scene it cuts to behind the couch and their wall of unpacked boxes. The problem is at the beginning of the commercial they show the same angle and all their stuff is on shelves. The continuity is ridiculously bad.

That's not a continuity error. It's the entire point of the commercial. All they need to be "home" is each other, their couch and their Rogers Cable.

Haha, yeah, commercials are pretty much horrible across the board, but a continuity error that large wouldn't make it onto a 30 second mainstream commercial.

How many times is Global going to run that ad for New Amsterdam? The one with the super intense violin that says nothing about the show? Ugh.

I just have to say, just because you are GM of a dealership, it does not mean you need to be the voice guy on your commercials. There are so many bad car dealership commercials out there where you can tell they are just reading a script.
