My local Fox affiliate used to run this commercial CEASELESSLY in the mid 90s.

I still remember most of these songs IN ORDER... Did anyone else have this medley burned into their ears??


I remember something similar, but for the life of me I can't recall it. Years ago.

In tribute to ORF, who had some pointed comments regarding dumb commericials, I am reviving the thread for your latest worst Tee Vee ad.

For me it's the latest round from Geico.  The  HOA Nazi beyotch from hell was bad enough, but the "aunt problem" is an embarrassment, and the Rocky and Bullwinkle spot, never mind. :facepalm:

They play that all the time on SiriusXM Progress when I listen to the Stephanie Miller Show every morning.  I usually wake up just after the show starts on the west coast so I always skip it on the commercials.

What do you think of "the Ratt problem" one? To me it's at least OK since it's a rock & roll oriented spoof.
Nothing beats "......well the squirrels are back and your father won't call an exterminator. He says this time it's personal (while squirrels are running wild behind her which is funny as hell to me). It's very noisy there. Are you taking a Zumba class?".

I always find it odd that insurance companies are usually the purveyors of asinine advertising campaigns. I call it "The Flo-Effect"; Granted Flo from Progressive has jumped the shark, too many times, but what really irritates me nowadays is Liberty Mutual's half assed attempt at trying to rip off Starsky & Hutch, I will not go into further detail but so much to say is that one of them is replaced by an Emu, Not only is the image of their team chemistry appalling, but the acting is just horrendous. If anything it reminds me of a Cowboy riding an Ostrich from a certain Holiday special, now I kind of wish there were an Isle of misfit Ads.

You're taking those commercials way too seriously. The Library Mutual ads are meant to be nothing but comedy. I'm surprised Flo from Progressive has lasted so long. It's been like over a decade now. I figured the company would want to freshen things up and do something different already.

I miss those Geico commercials with the guy asking rhetorical questions.

I couldn't see the first video.  I think this is the most obnoxious commercial ever.

Those are all terrible.  The newest one with the fake game show the Upper Hands :16ton: It's become so annoying that I constantly mute the sound when commercials come on.  The Del Taco one trying to be a gangsta..Dell No.. :facepalm:

Oh yes!! It's like nail on a chalk board..mute it every time I can, awful.  We have a local one for our state fair that is ghastly too but there is no link to it on YouTube...probably for the best.  We did have REO Speedwagon and Styx in concert tonight... ;)

I love this ear worm, Fancy Like by Walker Hayes. That blonde chick with the biceps doing her moves!

On another note. I'm totally done eating at Applebees, too many lousy meals to ever go through that again.

I haven’t seen my current favorite TV commercial in quite some time.
