    There are some companies that for some reason or another, no matter how they market their product, always seem to put me in a foul mood and actually succeed in doing the complete opposite of what they're supposed to. That is, persuade me to go someplace else if I want a burger, or sandwich, or computer. Which ad campaigns out of the choices above do you despise the most?

    I voted for Subway.

    I just can't stand that Josh geek, or whatever the hell is name is... I just want to tie him down and endlessly force-feed him fat free subs until he implodes, like the guy from SEVEN.

    I hate those stupid SUBWAY commercials with Jarrod. Okay, you lost weight, good for you, but GET OVER IT!
     
  10. 1-800-COLLECT.

    I purposely change the channel everytime it comes on.

    Great answers so far guys!

    I chose Subway, not only because of Jarrod, but because of this other commercial they're airing now with two bisexual girls "who like it hot". Was that line really necessary? Hands down, Subway commercials are the only ones that come close to bringing me to the point of hunting down those responsible and strangling them to death with my bare hands.

    I hate Pepsi because of the Britney Spears ads, but especially for the one featuring Bob Dole.

    Stephen and the Dell Apprentices all must die!!!! (nuff said!)

    Another commercial that's been driving me out of my gourd lately is for Sci Fi Channel's "The Dream Team". I think it's the insipid background music and the overall monotony of the ads, but also that I can't seem to find any channels that aren't airing the damn things!

    Definitely Dell!!!

    I despise the commercials and their whole ad campaign - how is it that this was successful - I really don't have a finger on the pulse of the masses and marketing is a tool I just don't understand...

    1-800-COLLECT is annoying, but at least there are hot chicks to look at...but I really liked it when Alyssa Milano was doing them - god did she grow up!!!:banana: :banana: :banana: :banana:

    Definitely Dell, even the new ones without Steven.

    I think the new Pepsi Twist commercial with the Osbournes is an absolute riot. I almost peed my pants the first time I saw it (I was so stoned that first time and I did literally laugh so hard that I couldn't breathe!!!), and I still laugh each time it comes on.

    Thankfully we won't have to deal with them anymore, but the NFL was actually beginning to make me hate Don Cheadle, one of my favorite actors.

    Yeah, why is Cheadle wasting his time with this?? Didn't this guy have a hot movie career?

    Those ads are something Orlando Jones, or somebody, should be doing..... That reminds me, those fucking 7up ads with Orlando Jones!! Ugh, I hated them!! I hate Orlando Jones! I'm glad those are off the air. :fire: :fire:
