Most absurd commerticals...
This one cracked me up; " If you have experienced heart attack, stroke or DEATH, call this number"
I'm too tired right now...but the "you have to call within the next 10 minutes to take advantage of this amazing two for one offer!" Then you see the same commercial again and again...
"This is not available in stores..."
"Call Wentworth and Wentworth and let us turn a 3 million dollar policy into 1m in one easy step.
Jarrod and The King: WTF?

What's a commertical?
Anyway, my contribution to the thread was a radio spot for the Ken Burns PBS series on baseball. I heard a comment that was so breathtakingly stupid, you have to review it in phrases to capture the total stupidity of it.
"It helped me to relive childhood memories that I had never had."
Second place goes to the radio spot that asked parents if they knew the warning signs for drug abuse...
redness in the eyes
irregular sleeping habits
lack of appetite...
It dawned on me I have all these symptoms and all I take are antihistimines.

"Proper use of this condom can prevent pregnancy, HIV, and other sexually transmitted diseases."
Think about that one for a minute. It will come to you. :-)

I'm really sick of those Icon: DJ of Jam commercials with two guys fighting in a gas station and watching some gross speaker in some guy's chest play crappy music while he fist-fights with someone. Man that looks like the lamest game ever.

I'm tired of watching some prime time family show (or even daytime programming) and seeing comercials for horror movies. I like the movies, but my kids don't need to see that crap.

The one where the Iowa soybean farmer is doing illegal things with his cat. I hate that commercial. 40,000+ times Ive seen it.
