I have just 4 words to say about this.... Tee Eye Vee Oh! Thank goodness for TIVO! I cannot tolerate any birth control ads, lawyer ads, infomercial ads with the yelling guy, and the beer ads that make it seem like if you drink that brand, you'll attract all kinds of gorgeous women. Yeah right, like that's what I look for in a man!

Hmm, I guess none of this refers to jingles, and I said more than 4 words! Interesting thread though!

Commercials....I hate just about all of them!!! Most are so insulting to my/your intelligence that it infuriates me! I really can't stand ambulance-chasing lawyers who now advertise on TV and radio. That was unheard of at one time. Flo of the Progressive commercials gets under my skin, also. Like I said...I hate just about all commercials. But, it's free speech and I'm all for that. Just not so much on TV. Actually, TV pretty much sucks nowadays. We just got Dish TV and have so many channels, but usually can't find a thing to watch. I'd much rather have on some nice music and a good glass of wine and talk to my husband. But....he now has all kinds of sports channels, so he's in heaven.

That McDonald's Filet-o-Fish jingle is the worst offender for me! It just gets stuck in my head and makes me want to scream.

I'm with you on the prescription medication commercials. I agree that if you're having a problem you should just go to the doctor. However, having said that, I think that sometimes such commercials may be doing a service for an individual. Perhaps someone doesn't realize that they are clinically depressed (they are usually the last to know) and seeing the commercial might make them realize that there is help out there. They could ask their doctor about a certain medication in an ad that they saw and it will at least open up the conversation about their depression with the doctor.

I do love making fun of those commericals though. Especially Cialis -because you get free bathtubs with each purchase, placed anywhere outside that you want! Awesome!

I was just going to comment about that. What is with the bathtubs outside in the open? I don't get it at all.

On the flip side, I love the new Orkin ads, with the anthropomorphized ants/termites etc. They're hilarious! "Are we...dipping skinny?"

As far as I'm concerned THEY ALL STINK!!! And they show one right after another especially in prime time. I watch Fox News and the Weather Channel to get away from them sometimes LOL!!
