    The GEICO caveman has run its course. Please stop.

    Also, I generally hate jewelry commercials, but my least favorite one is where the kid is playing Santa and gives his mom a watch and she says "OH SANTA". She's that excited about a WATCH? OH GOD I hate that one. I can't even remember which company it is.

    Really? What is wrong with the Best Buy commercials? They're not the best/funniest thing out there, but its not like they're annoying and the concept seems to work.

    Re: Annoying Commercials 2: Searching for the MUTE button

    I've pretty much had it with the cologne/perfume commercials all being sold at Macy's. I'm at the point where I will never set foot in Macy's owned property again. The Tour de France stationary bike commercial also needs to go. If you require a helmet to ride a stationary bike, you're literally ********. Kay/Jared jewelry commercials have piqued my ire as well.

    I agree with every spot that's been mentioned so far. They're all sucky. Isn't it nice we can balance off their stupidity and lack of creativity with the Acura spot and Gordon Ramsey?

    "Is this your first day? Well, it's your last. Get out." And then the befuddled old bag at the table says: "Happy holidays." Perfect.

    Agree, most of the ones mentioned do suck. Especially when you have some really amazing ones like these which Im sure you have all seen:

    ******** width="560" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/at_f98qOGY0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen>

    And this one from the UK which is quite stunning...even if we wont see it over here.

    Is barbaric.

    I could live with "Flo" being used for involuntary medical experimentation. Annoying and overexposed. Remember that smarmy, Eddie Haskell/Uriah Heep wannabe kid in the computer commercials a couple of years ago?

    Not true. That stupid "go to" Kangaroo wine commercial is still airing, as well as the ridiculous Chevy Cruze commercials with "Santa" as a car salesman along with the pedophile-looking coworker.

    Don't know what shows you're watching, but most of the holiday ads will run through the New Year.

    Then it'll be Valentine's Day!

    Boy was I wrong.

    I also wonder if she has ever driven a car before...based on her awkward hand movements on the wheel.

    They played that commercial during every break of the Champs Sports bowl. I wanted to stick pencils in my ears.
