Default The OFFICIAL "Commercials that make you want to stab your eye out" thread!

I'm talking about commercials that are repeatedly shown during games - so Mods, I think this one needs to stay here.

One of the drawbacks about watching lots of football is having to suffer through the same stupid commercials, over and over again. Even the ones that are sort of clever get old fast. The dumb ones are just torture.

Don't you just love Bob Seger's Like a Rock? What about John Mellencamp's Our Country?

This season, the one that gets me every time is the Sprint one. It's the one where everything is black and yellow, and the commercial quotes imaginary statistics. "Right now, 27,000 people are looking at online porn" - that sort of thing.

About 2/3 through the commercial, it says, "2900 fantasy owners conveniently waited until now to text their opponent their star player has a bye week." It shows some woman acting like she just really put one over on some unsuspecting slob.

What does that even mean? It's inexplicably stupid. Didn't the smart people at Sprint's ad agency think that most of the people watching that ad would be watching football. And didn't they consider that most of them would therefore be knowledgeable enough about fantasy football that they would know that this made no sense. It irritates me every time, which is a lot of times.

Anyone else have any they want to share?

Here's the stupid one I'm talking about, by the way.

I know play60 is a nice program and all that, but I swear I want to get a machine gun and riddle that entire group everytime I see them running. You get all the money to place a PSA multiple times through a major network primetime event, and this is the best you can come up with? With all the talent at NFL films behind you? The ad exec should be dipped in honey mustard sauce and thrown on a fireant hill. Pathetic.

AT&T loves making themselves look like idiots with those leftover rollover minute commercials. By far the most annoying commercials currently running.

Totally agree. I told my son the other day that if anyone was really married to the woman in those commercials, they would smother her in her sleep.

like all the geico commercials are terrible. The lizard ones are flat out painful, the googly eyes is over played, and the gaveman ones have been going on for about 10 years.

Also, every friggin truck commercial that you see replayed 5 times per game is too much. I'm getting tired of Denis Leary's voice.

Ugh - the freaking cavemen! I hated those when they first came out (apologies to Mock, who thinks they're hysterical). They've just gotten worse. I can't believe the Cavemen show didn't take off. Who would have guessed a show based on some stupid commercials wouldn't be a success?

I love the one where he talks about how the engineers were the studious guys in high school. "While guys like you and I were thinking about pizza..." Um, yeah - I don't think pizza would be the first thing most hormonal teen-age boys are thinking about.

Commercials? what are those? I don't do commercials. There's a good reason why God made DVR's on the 8th day.

The one where LL Cool J yells "Phillllippp Riiiiiiivvvvvers" with his hand cupped over his mouth. It just doesn't fit: Philip Rivers is about as non-gangsta as they come and it's just super annoying and not to mention cringe-worthy.

Here it is, I need to go wash my hands after posting it:

Not a big fan of the stupid caveman ones...

And props to the Peyton Manning one...I love that SNL skit so much...what you might enjoy is this little video dedication to Peyton and his actual commercials, it kills me (and for the record I find Peyton manning hysterical and I think he's a great QB, dunno if he's a good guy, but he doesn't seem to beat up women so that's a plus for him).

DUDE!!! AWESOME! And how many friggin different versions of CSI can they promote? I get it CBS you have like 12 different shows were people solve crimes and sometimes things get "hairy" and the formula for each one of them is the same as every other one.

I get it CBS you have other tv shows I can watch!
