Companies With the Most Annoying Television Commercials

The Top Ten
1 Progressive

Progressive commercials are the WORST.
Flo is back guarding a yard and yelling at a bird, so it doesn't lay a birdturd on the insured car!?
What's with the commercials about all the imbeciles appearing all at once as they are on a teleconference? WHO's the dingy woman mumbling?
Does someone in this company find these stupid commercials funny?

Even if their cheaper, I'll go with someone else because of how irritating their moronic commercials are.
PS The moronic ad company that came up with the idea is Arnold Worldwide based out of Boston.

Flo and Jamie have run their course, and are ready for the trash can of history! Can't grab my remote fast enough to either mute or change channels when they come. Time for new ad campaign!

Flo is the most annoying thing on TV. She's never been funny, but clearly she and the writers think they're VERY funny. The one before the Super Bowl where she was doing Ochocinco's TD dances is painful

2 Liberty Mutual

The Liberty commercial comes on many times a day with the msnbc on the internet streaming and T.V.. I have to race to turn the volume down it is so unbearable. I never want to hear that jingle put somehow it manages to play sometimes when I can't turn it down. I actually have Liberty car insurance because it gave a competitive rate but now and am trying to find an alternative that is how much I hate the commercial. I am going to let them know I am leaving their company. It is my least favorite of any commercial playing.

I totally agree on THIS one. Since when is one word that's repeated a few times classified as a jingle?! It's annoying! You'd think they'd have someone come up with a decent jingle. I don't watch regular T.V. all the time, but if I happen to, then this would air. Big changes need to be made with commercials such as this, like less annoying jingles and the people on the commercials to just act natural, not be made fools of. If you want to be funny, do it right, don't make it forced and unnatural. That's a big turn-off for me.

The emu and Doug need to go, as well as the company jingle at the end of the commercial. The ones in front of the Statue of Liberty are not much better. Fire the ad exec that dreamed up this annoying concept. I keep the remote handy to block exposure to these asinine commercials!

During lockdown I have stayed in shape scrambling for the remote whenever any of the Doug/emu spots come on. Very glad I quit LM a few years ago, and it had nothing to do with the commercials.

3 Charmin Toilet Paper

Bears are gross and I don’t need to know about the young bear’s underwear streaks. And why did that slob leave them on the floor anyway?

Very tired of seeing both versions of the Charmin bears; blue and red. And why do we even need commercials for toilet paper? You buy what you need, when you need it. And it's a constant need.

Their commercials drive me crazy. The blue bears that rub toilet paper on their faces and act like it's the best thing in the world are just stupid. They seriously need to dump these commercials there just so awful!

This isn't funny and nobody wants to see this. Extra points for their radio spots because the songs they make are just gross

4 Geico

The cloggers are just a lot of annoying noise and the volume always increases on this damn commercial. Can't get to the mute button fast enough. My second most annoying is the General. Don't see them here but Snoop Crap has got to go.

The Geico commercial with the guy on stage rocking out to the triangle is by far the MOST ANNOYING and stupid commercial I have ever heard and I turn the volume down every single time it comes on. Its not funny and makes absolutely no sense and definitely steers me away from ever wanting Geico insurance. The gecko is starting to get pretty cheesy as well, but I would much rather see him on a commercial than a stupid guy playing a stupid triangle for what seems like an eternity!

Most of their thousands of commercials are not funny. Perfect example of throwing a lot of crap on the wall and seeing which piece sticks. In fact, actually doing that would be funnier than their commercials.

Geico commercials make nails on a chalkboard sound like sweet music to my ears. No matter how good their insurance actually is, I will actively avoid doing business with them because I refuse to reward them for their cringeworthy, headache-inducing commercials.

5 Arby's

I started a rule in my life to not do business with corporations that constantly annoy me with commercials. When I want a product, I fire up the search engine and quickly find what I need. I ignore T.V. and internet advertising by muting, changing channels, whatever it takes. If a web page opens with an advertisement, I ignore that page and look elsewhere for the same subject matter. It's hard to believe that a corporation that pays for tons of T.V. commercials during prime time, can also provide the best customer service and product value. It's as if corporations purposely make their commercials more-and-more stupid and annoying. Perhaps that actually increases sales but for me, the corporation gets crossed off my "buy from" list.

Totally the most nerve-wracking commercial out there. The annoying voice reminds me of the Duluth Trading Company, Allstate Insurance, and Firestone Tire commercials. But the Arby's ads are the worst! You have some deep-voiced moron practically yelling at you "We have the MEATS! " Accompanied by loud drums that remind me of an elephant stomping its feet!

I cannot reach the remote fast enough to tune this idiot out. Have we not been accosted by these commercials long enough? What good is airing this garbage when most folks choose to tune it out. This type of aggressive in-your-face advertising needs to stop! Pay attention Arby's!

Ving Rhames does the voiceover. For a while he was also in ads for ADT home security. Every time I saw the ADT ad, I expected him to say "We have the meats! " Oh, and a local Arby's had a poster showing a fish sandwich. Something about vegetarians can eat at Arby's too. Since when is seafood vegetarian?

Actually, Arby's does a good job with 15 second commercials - We have the meats is a worn out one liner like where's the beef? Beyond that, their food is great, and using 15 second commercials is a smart move

6 J.G. Wentworth

The sloppy, unemployed kid sitting on the couch having his mother clean up after him and giving her a fed up look is too much. But at least it makes me laugh!

I nearly wore out my mute button when the girlish rappers appeared. Awful, cloying, and annoying.

Hate hate hate every one of these commercials. Someone please make the bad people stop!

Can't change the channel fast enough. Most irritating jingle ever!

7 Aflac

Funny at first but then real annoying

The Aflac commercials are fine and funny!

I used to have this toy that when I pressed a button it'd say Aflac

8 Barbie

I swear they show 10 different Barbie ads over and over during the holidays and just as many during the rest of the year!

9 Sonic

The Sonic commercials with these two idiotic guys are the most annoying commercials I've ever seen. I absolutely will not eat at Sonic because of them!

If, and only if, Sonic comes to their senses and fires those 2 idiotic 40 year old teenagers in their commercials, I will eat there again.

Can't stand those two. Esp the blonde. Not even close to funny. They must be the owners or their children!

The two idiot men were bad enough and now they have two women even more annoying.

10 Nationwide Nationwide Mutual Insurance Company and affiliated companies is a group of large U.S. insurance and financial services companies based in Columbus, OH.

Nationwide: idiots,
Bad jingle sung by loser musicians, dishonest company, is not on anyone's side but there own.

Dump these boring and tiresome Manning and Paisley commercials. They stink.

Isn't this insurance company with that dead kid commercial?

Just another dumb insurance commercial

The Newcomers

? Tik Tok

Their ads are annoying.

The Contenders
11 Pampers

Pampers. The one with the baby crying and the mom tripping over stuff to get to it. It first aired in 2013 and they keep bring it back. It gets on my nerves.

12 Credit Karma

Dude! Dude! Need I say more?

Stupid commercial

I like these

13 Allstate

I wasn't annoyed until those unrealistic commercials where people spaz out over seeing that actor and identify him not as "the guy from the Allstate commercials" but by some fact about pricing.

The most nauseating on TV. That curly haired puke saying " its him he's right there "

Have to change channel when this one comes on. Sad cause I really liked Dennis H. in 24.

14 HeadOn

Worst commercial repeating the most despicable phrase in the existence of humanity. Glad this abomination no longer exists on T.V..

Anything but this! if it plays one more time, I'm gonna throw my computer out the window

This one scarred me for life and I will never ever be the same.

Apply directly to the forehead.

15 Life Alert

Life Alert's new commercial just went from bad to worse after the last had aired for several years. Their current commercial reminds me of a Halloween horror show gone bad. Poor camera work, poor set, even the fonts are dreadful. My read? Hire another ad agency or outsource to produce. ABSOLUTELY dreadful..

Worked EMS-- most "lives saved" were people too stupid to reset the control box as required once a day. When the automatic alarm goes off-- it takes an ambulance out of service for people that may actually need it. This commercial is patently false scare tactics.

Every time the life alert commercial comes on, I mute the T.V.. It starts out, "you may be offended" yes I am, not because of the poor lady at the bottom of the stairs, but about the content of the commercial. It's played at least 5 times an hour. I hope they take it off soon!

It is very annoying to hear someone suffering, I think this company is heartless in their advertising. My mom had problems walking. This commercial plays on peoples emotions in very selfish and heartless manner

16 Lunchables

Jackrabbit and Platypus run nonstop. Their so god dang annoying.

17 Haribo Gold-Bears

Yes, I agree but there are worse. Direct T.V. is so disgusting with the slobs. Coffee, gum, even salad spills. Wet bags & (It's just creepy to me). Mute!

Truly the worst, most annoying current ads running on T.V.. Worse even than every Panera commercial- which I didn't think was possible.

The jingle is crap and the new commercials with adults speaking in toddler voices is so annoying.

Absolutely obnoxious. How can anyone find this commercial amusing? One of the worst commercials ever.

18 Snickers

I do like snickers but the Ric Flair Woo commercials are so ANNOYING and RETARDED! This commercial gave me some type of TELEVISION CANCER!

19 Subway Subway is a privately held American fast food restaurant franchise that primarily purveys submarine sandwiches (subs) and salads. Subway is one of the fastest-growing franchises in the worldand, as of June 2017, has approximately 45,000 stores located in more than 100 countries. More than half of the ...read more.

Lately annoying beeps and noises and stupid subliminal attempts are their thing. Beeping burger makes my ears bleed

Whenever the commercial comes on blaring some music, I have to either mute the sound or change the channel!

Food is great but whats with the monkey

20 Toyota Toyota is a Japanese car manufacturer, located in Toyota, Japan. Some of their most notable cars include the Prius, Corolla, and Highlander.

My wife and I are so annoyed by the stupid "Pat" Toyota adds that we always mute the adds and she refusses to even consider a Toyota for her next car. I can't imagine that this is a national commercial, it would be too great a drag on sales.

I actually work at a Toyota dealership and I like it so far, but there is another Toyota dealership in my area that always has super annoying commercials on the radio. They always play this loud and obnoxious song in the background while a guy talks like your quintessential advertiser about the cars they have on the lot. I like Toyota overall and the dealership that I work at, but not that other dealership with the really annoying commercials.

The commercial with the laughing kids in back seat is so annoying. They skip away to another commercial, then come back laughing even worse. They never show what they are laughing at. I have to mute it.

Sophie and her Dad are extremely stupid. If you think this will sell your Prius, go back to Japan.

21 Kars4Kids

My husband and I donated our car and we only received 3 kids. I am very disappointed and I hate the commercial because it comes on in our car, that we stole back because we only got 3 kids, and now that's all that plays not stop. 4 HOURS!

If I ran the network it was on, it would ban it as undoubtedly a large percentage of viewers who watch turn it off. Would hate to pay to be the commercial following that one.

Seriously one of the most annoying songs ever made. Well until Soundcloud came out and we all got mumble rap

Completely irritating. I change the channel when the commercials come on.

22 Pillow Pets

I hated this whenever I used to watch nick

23 Yoplait

This is the single worst commercial on T.V.. Every time I hear that woman yell "Independent Child" it makes me hate the product even more. I will never buy Yoplait again because its obvious Yoplait thinks their target market is uneducated and crude. Why would I support that premise? I mute the commercial and avert my eyes to something else when it comes on - or change the channel. It is loud and annoying. If everyone boycotted Yoplait, they just may run out of marketing $$ and have to remove the commercial. Yea.

It's not hard to find a lousy T.V. commercial since pretty much all of them are bad. but the Yoplait one with the screaming woman has deservedly earned the distinction of being the most reviled ad of 2019.

if I could swing a sledgehammer through the T.V., it would be aimed directly at the woman's adam's apple. then I'd seek out the Yoplait marketing VP that approved it & the ad agency staff that created it, from top to bottom, and cancel their earth membership cards one by one.

Oh my God. That Independent Child commercial, where it gets louder... and Louder... and LOUDER! It is just plain obnoxious, and somewhat coincidental with an earlier complaint, I haven't seen it on the tele in a week or two. I now mute all the commercials, they're numerous and geared toward low mentalities. Most of them ooze with forced diversity, and are an insult to my intelligence.

Yes. These oprah yell commercials make me instantly angry and ready for some throat punching. I mean during the whole process of pitching, writing, recording and editing this commercial... Nobody realized how patronizing and inflammatory the yelling is?! How sad. I'm boycotting until its pulled.

24 Orbit (Gum)

That geeky guy, shaking his booty to rap music with a peacock tail, is absolutely stupid and asinine.

Cheesy sparkling teeth.

Why does this nerdy British kid with the hideous glasses say “see? She got highlights.”? The girl he’s looking at has no visible highlights in her hair at all! I don’t know about other schools but I know at mine, chewing gum was strictly forbidden. And don’t get me started on how often this horrible commercial plays...

25 Little Caeser's

Hate the retards laying their head on the table blahs blahs blahs, I change channels so I do not know nor care, just hope I never have to eat their pizza.

The current one with the family is terrible

The mom looks like she is wearing dentures 5 times too big for her mouth, the little boy looks like he doesn’t want to be there so does his sister. The dad is creepy, but the grandma is ok

It’s super annoying to hear Guy always to a family who is taking a family photo having cheese in super long and annoying unison.

The family one sucks you’re right, the little boy deserves to die, he looks annoying
