    Default Commercials that get on your nerves

    I'm not sure why, but the new Zappos ones drives me crazy. All of them!

    I can't stand the "Slap Chop" commercials. It makes me want to "slap" his "chops."

    But you'll love his nuts!!!!!!!!!!

    hahaha, that gets me every time. I can't think of any that I don't like, but I know Wesley really got upset at the Dell computer where they had all the hand-drawn stuff. At the end of every one, he'd be standing there pointing his slingshot or his cap gun or his pirate sword or his battle axe at the t.v. I couldn't figure out why until I realized that it was because there is a monster sneaking up on a guy at the end and Wesley didn't like the monster.

    ~Um, all of them? We don't watch tv so whenever I have to see commercials at other people's houses I get annoyed. They all irritate me.~

    I must not pay any attention to them...........can't think of any...we don't get some that are mentioned.

    BUT.........

    I get a kick out of the 'stupid' Geico ones.........and now there is one with a PIG in it (I think it is for Geico) and I can't understand the lady at the end that says the pigs name.......I want to know his name. (it is the one about the pig crying wee -wee- wee- all the way home)........if anyone knows the name of the pig...........please post it. It is driving me nuts. That commercial cracks me up!

    Often..........if it is going to be one of those 5 minute runs I will mute it and read.........

    Huh? I just posted the answer to your question.

    But this is a negative thread of commercials, not the fun ones we all enjoy! I want posted the ones that grinds your nerves, not the ones you like! I love all the Geico !

    Negative here I'm talking....negative!
