    Right now mine is one of the pistachio commercials. I like almost all of the ones I've seen except for one.

    The one featuring what's his face.....the father of Palin's grandchild.

    I think it's in bad taste, oportunistic and just plain trashy. Besides.....they have to put him in an Alaska t-shirt so people even know who he is. What a jerk.

    The new Yahoo! commercial really gets on my nerves.......

    There are sooo many to choose from. I have to say, though, that Slap Chop remix one that BabyBear posted would make me want to slap someone, for sure! Thank goodness I've never been forced to watch it! I couldn't even get past about 30 seconds of it on here.

    I am loathing the new Viagra commercials. Two that I've seen. In one, the husband gets viagra and no longer spends a day antique shopping with his wife. In the other, the husband gets viagra and no longer goes for nightly walks with his wife. These 2 commercials just drive me crazy!

    It seems like the only commercials I have seen lately are either for or against the health care bill, wanting me to contact my senators. At least one of my senators has already decided how he's going to vote (and I don't approve) and the other is somewhat on the fence but I contacted him long ago. I'm not saying which side I'm on as I don't want to be controversial but the opposing side tells so many lies that I find myself yelling and cursing at the TV. I don't understand how they get away with telling outright lies; I guess if you have enough money to spend you can convince almost anybody of almost anything. GRRRR!

    The two new KY Jelly commercials showing as headers to news clips on several major web newsites.

    Basically you have a couple in bed talking about how the new product "helps her" and then shows the woman still silent, standing next to a steam whistle or geyser when it goes off...that's supposed to show the intensity of the "moment" when using the new product.

    There are a lot that I really think are in poor taste, but the ones that take the cake right now are the Sprint (I think) commercials that only run during Desperate Housewives. Cheating guy and his mistress plotting to kill the wife...They are really rather despicable. Sprint ought to be ashamed. The network should be ashamed.

    This one's just inane.

    I'll have to think on this, but I'm with GN about those being in very poor taste.

    With not watching tv these days I am so glad not to have those annoying things. The viagra commercials that I have seen have always been annoying to me.

    The KY warming thing is up there on my list....it's insulting.

    Bumpits are just stupid and make one's head seem rather long - deformed, but the commercials don't bother me. They're just inane.

    I DVR everything and fast forward through commercials, so I don't see many.

    Me, too, Heather. I have to admit, there are certain ones that I scroll back for.

    The Bumpit was invented by a woman from Fresno. When Miss KT and I go somewhere, we're on "Bumpit Alert" because some people really get into it. There's a woman at church who I swear wears three Hollywood Bumpits at a time. Nobody has a head that tall except for one of the Coneheads.

    I have two least favorites. First is for the Magic Jack. I am so tired of hearing it. The second is a local grocery store chain with a most annoying song.

    Oh, we have one for a local, rural car dealership. They dress up in overalls with a piece of straw hanging out of their mouth. It's just kinda sad.

    Still don't get the whole bumpit thing. Keep seeing them in stores and it seems... Stupid. Why would you want a goose egg on your head?

    I suppose if you had little body to your hair you might try the bump it, but then the thing would probably show. To me, it looks very 60s. The commercial is weird...also looks very 60s.

    I too don't like the Magic Jack one and the Viagra ones.

    What about the commercials with Billy Mays (who passed away)? Almost all of those I did not care for. They were soooo loud and it seemed like he was cramming the product down your throat. Sham Wow!
