The TV Commercial That Annoys The Shit Out Of Me...

...fortunately, i don't have a problem with irregularity, so i'm just pointlessly annoyed at that commercial with the chick getting dressed and her boyfriend or husband keeps playing that Eric Clapton song on his laptop, you know that song from Clapton's boring sucky phase (which in my opinion equals anything he did after Cream, and continues to this day), the part where he sings "she's wondering what clothes to wear . . . she's wondering what clothes to wear . . . she's wondering what clothes to wear . . . This evil commercial never fails to insert that awful song into my consciousness until i drift off to sleep, if i'm lucky.

Other commercials i hate include any in which chewing noises predominate, such as all the Carl's Jr. commercials and the new "Cheerios are good for babies too" spots, and also any commercial with kids singing.

Oooooo, that's a fab commercial! It's the barb of truth that hooks the laugh. I am with you on the Carl's Jr. commercials. I have to turn the channel when they come on.

What do you think about the commercial with the pads that leak, or the discovery of "a brand new day" with a little valtrex?

I'm with Casca, I love the ad -- but I have loved the song for 25 years or so too.

So you don't like "Layla"?

overplayed piece of sentimental tripe. Allman brothers rip-off. And it's about ten minutes too long.

I agree, that ad is way lame, and that song is a junior high dance song. I don't agree with your take on Layla though, the piano part always reminds me of Goodfellas. As for Carls Jr., comon, what about the girl riding the mechanical bull? That's hot.

The 'I'm Lovin' It' BS from McCrackhead's sucks, too.

Very clever commercial (and I don't even like Clapton!). Perhaps you're feeling a little too curmudgeon?

omg I just saw one of the Carl's Jr commercials. they are ALL so disgusting. whether it's some skank riding a bull, or a slutty celebrity washing a car, adding a sloppy, messy, juicy burger that aggrivate my nerves is so ANNOYING.
I have to turn the channel and yet they call that advertising?
