    My Vote for WORST Commercial Ever

    So I JUST saw a commercial for Bayer Aspirin, starring Ty Pennington. Apparently 'Ty' is Latin for Massive Tool.

    So, this commercial has Ty in the ER/CCU saying, 'This is one room that I wish we didn't need." He then spews some corporate stuff, and the camera pans to a crying woman, as Ty explains that her husband had a heart attack, but, "You don't have to." So that was super lame, but strap in, it gets worse.

    THEN Ty is crouching down next to the R.N. AND the sad wife, and he puts his arm on her shoulder, to comfort them both. I ALMOST shat my pants, it was amazing. I don't know if the writers were high on LSD, Peyote, or huffing silver paint, but wait until you see this POS. Granted it is subtle, but holy crap, it is super-lame. Just amazing. Wow.

    Seriously... there are far worse ads.

    How about the guy talking about being constipated, and then after he gets to the part in the story about how he took some OTC medicine, a dump truck in the background drops an entire load of dirt?

    I mean, do they havta draw us a picture? I ran out to get some Bayer Asprin after that one. God Bless Ty Pennington! *sniff!

    I have to agree with Max about the Ty/Bayer ad, and when my wife, a real ER nurse, saw it she just shook her head.

    And I would also counsel the GEICO people that the "caveman" campaign has run its course...let it go...it's getting just a little stale.

    Max, I gotta agree. That Bayer commercial is just plain tasteless. Not only does he intrude on a supposed personal family moment but he left me thinking that people should be feeling ashamed of themselves for having a heart attack... Talk about a pompous a$$.

    On the other hand, I found the pulling of the I-beam, the dropping of the barrels and the dumping of the bricks to be really quite funny, (especially the bricks )

    I just wish I could hit Ty in the face with a shovel. 87 times. He is such a mega-tool, I can not comprehend it. I just cannot wait for when he gets caught for doing something shady. I don't think we have too long to wait...

    What about those Head On Commercials? Omigosh I would do anything to keep from buying their product because of them.

    The cave men are destined for their own TV show on ABC.

    My biggest pet peeve on commercials are when they make the husband look stupid. Some smug littly uppity-wife rolls her eyes at her husband's antics. The message is clear, men are stupid, women are smart.

    I am sure many of you agree with that, now that I think of it!

    There's an allergy commercial with a talking bee who has a bad Spanish accent. Why does the bee have an accent??? Sounds a little like a stupid Puss in Boots.

    They are just too many bad commercials on my list.

    Briefly, anything having to do with feminine hygiene, or Viagara/Cialis and our friend Bob with that silly a$$ grin on his face.

    Another was the Burger King ad with that scary King who lurked in windows.

    Believe it or not, that actually is Antonio Banderas voicing the bee.

    One of the commercials I can't stand is for Clorox products. It has the children whispering secrets to each other about what they do that isn't clean. I think it's the second set of kids that I had to listen to several times to understand what they were saying. It's 'I play with my boats in the toilet.' If that isn't disgusting enough, it sounds like the kid says I play with my poops in the toilet. Whoever wrote this ad needs to be shot.

    It's actually a bran based cereal.


    I'm getting sick of the Caveman commercials. The restaurant one and the first airport one were great, but they're getting stale. The show that's based off them is so going to flop. Whoever approved that idea should be canned.

    I've always hated the Geico gecko.

    Right now the commercial I hate the most is the Hyundai "Duh" event. I can't believe *that* got approved.

    I'll look up on her behalf.

    Didn't he get arrested for DUI recently? I heard he was going in rehab.

    I wondered if that was him. Is he so hard up for money that he has to do stupid commercials now?

    Aww, do you really? I rather like him.

    The commericals I hate are not on anymore. I believe it was for some type of car that was boasting of its safty record. It showed the people in the car having a good time when all of a sudden they get hit by another car. Real scary. Then the camera shows them all shook up but ok. I know the ad is to show how safe the car is, but I hate how they had to scare me to do it, an unexpected scare. From then on whenever I saw people laughing in a car in a commerical, I turned the channel. I don't even remember the make of the car.
