Default Commercials you can't stand!

Subway. I like their subs but as long as they keep making horribly annoying commercials I am not buying them anymore. That monkey one they currently have makes me wanna go crazy and that Jarrod guy has gotten plumper then he was and I still want to force feed him Bon Bons until he weighs 1000lbs. Honourable mention to that little Mazda brat with his Zoom Zoom Zoom crap.

I cannot stand those Telus ads, during the game I hear that girl and those birds bouncing I lose my mind.

For the whole month of December it was that stupid mp3 phone with the fish that make different shapes. They seem to get it onto every single commercial break on Sportsnet. Telus must die.

Ads about mutual fund investing and stuff (AMG finincial, IMG direct...etc.) all get to me. I can't stand how they advertise their investment techniques. It's all BS and overstating.

The "You're Richer Than You Think" ones.

First it was that "should tell him or should I?" WTF? I still don't understand that stupid thing. Now it's the "we're not breakfast nook people". Great. Thanks for making me dumber.

Also any bank / insurance / mortgage / money in general commercial -- CIBC in particular -- that tries to be all cute and emotional. Like that chick buying the vineyard, or the dude building the nursery. F off and die. All you financial institutions do is steal my money. Don't try to make me feel giddy about it.

Telus ads drive me insane. It's time for a new ad design for the love of god. You've been doing the exact same crap since Clearnet PCS.

Panago guy. So he's a chef now? Why is he still wearing his hard hat? How did they find a hard hat that they could fit his massively fat head in? I hate that guy.

Ditto to all here so far. The singer in the Telus parrots one makes me want to shove icepicks under my toenails.

Have to add the "Rule of Truck" ones with the loser in the cowoby hat talking about the horsepower and especially the one with the big back seat for friends.

I hate those commercials with the Snailski's. And the parrots as mentioned numerous times above. Gahh!
Also, the Sportsnet commercials for the Oiler broadcasts.

According to our friend at Toyota, 300 horses can go much faster than one horse. Somehow. Now I'm no horse expert, but I'm pretty sure that 300 horses together would end up going slower than one horse. Who writes this stuff?

Worst was one where the guy says "I went into the bank to see about helping my daughter with her student loans. The lady asked if I had thought about retirement. I said no way- not for me."

Then the banker says to the guy "you can afford to hang it up in 3 years."

OK, so a guy in his mid 50's has money to help his daughter with student loans, and can retire in 3 years while still helping her. Obviously he has been socking away cash for quite a while; it's not like the bank found a way for a regular guy to be able to pay his kid's student loans and retire though their magic plans they came up with.
