The pig for Geico has to be the worst for me it's a very annoying and stupid commercial and the fact that they brought it back for a second time has me very puzzeled, The whole thing is a stupid concept the second one is worse than the first one with him riding in a car with a family. Any company that would agree to a an ad like that needs to have a better advertising team. I could do a better job coming up with an idea. The whole thing is nauseating.

I'm laughing here because my other half absolutely HATES that pig and reminds everyone in the room of the fact every time the little swine comes on the screen to wee wee wee somewhere.


I'd have to go with the Hamsters myself. Those gangsta ones for the car. That makes the worst one I see currently on the air. Now worst of all time? Wow..I'd have to really think hard. The list to choose a winner from is long and distinguished. lol

The new "tasteless" Carl's Jr commercials some I hear were to bad to be aired... featuring women barely clothed zoom to various body parts as they eat Carl's Jr burgers.
Personally tired of every single item including what we eat being sold by zeroing in on a females body parts! I find it crude and ridiculousness and cannot begin to understand how this sells food.

Video for you guys who missed out!

I got this one....

The crazy lady Flo from those Progressive Insurance commercials.

Also everything with the Xylophones/ baby crib music in the background.

Funny you should ask. I hate this commercial sooo much.



The kid is such a materialistic little $h!t. I used to turn the channel immediately as soon as it came on, then one day I was talking to my aunt (who's an actress) and I asked her if she'd done anything I might've seen recently. She informed me she was the Singing Mother in this video. The next time the ad came on I watched it, and sure enough.


I still hate the commercial, but I can at least say I know someone in it.

I have to agree, the Geico pig ones are annoying as hell too, I don't get the connection either (Pigs & Insurance?)

Couldn't think of a bad commercial because this one is still stuck in my mind from the 90's

I personally think that any and all commercials that promote...fast food, soda, junk food, and overly processed foods..are all horrible. They are promoting awful nutrition (or rather lack of it!)...and as a result many people get methodically hypnotized into buying products that (over time) will make them ill and destroy their health.

Anything with Flo from Progressive. She needs to go.

I like the pig commercial, but don't care much for the gecko. I like the fat guinea pigs rowing too. That made me laugh.

I pretty much DVR whatever I intend to watch anyway, so I don't see many commercials, unless something catches my eye.

I absolutely hate the geico pig commercial, that is the most annoying commercial in the world and like it was said up above i am surprised they brought it back. I also hate the aspca commercials that show the abused animals to that sad song.

I gotta agree with you on this one. Those commercials are sucking my will to live. I woke up one morning a few months ago with that stupid song in my brain and couldn't get rid of it. Mostly though, I don't watch commercials. I'll either pause then fast forward through them on DVR,,,lol...or do like my father used to do and just mute them.
