Companies With the Most Annoying Television Commercials

The Top Ten

1 Progressive Progressive

Flo should have retired years ago and I HATE Jamie...God he's annoying. Especially that stupid big Jim commercial and the one in the classroom where he's being an obnoxious ass. The mute button on my remote is worn out.

Flo just the name is repulsive. The sidekick is worse than a gnat buzzing around your face. And remember they are choosing to foist this on the viewers.

The worst and repetitive. It convinces me not to even consider this company for my insurance needs

I hate their ad with Sonic the Hedgehog.

2 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.

I love the voice ARBY'S WE HAVE THE BEAT (for sandwiches) ha I love it - Luckys

Annoying since day 1.

"we have the meats" "for sandwiches" both are annoying (voice included).

3 Aflac

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

The Aflac commercials are fine and funny!

No, the Aflac duck is funny. - RadioHead03

Funny at first but then real annoying

4 Charmin Toilet Paper

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!

Terrible

Why do they rub toilet paper on their cheeks? Do they even know where that toilet paper comes from? - RadioHead03

5 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!

6 J.G. Wentworth

The worst!

Should be illegal to be this annoying.

He's in love with himself.

Makes me want to puke.

7 HeadOn

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

Apply directly to the forehead.

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

8 Liberty Mutual

Liberty Mutual's commercials are way too frequent on T.V., not at all interesting, and their "Liberty... liberty...liberty" jingle is an apparent attempt to brainwash viewers. I change channels when one comes on, or close my ears if the remote isn't immediately available. They should check out any other insurance company commercial, all better than theirs. Also, consider that their premiums and claim payouts must reflect all the money that they waste with their all-too-frequent lousy commercials.

This is one of the most idiotic commercials on T.V.!

Liberty's tactic is to cater to the most naive (or stupid) people. "A scratch so small you could fix it with a pen"... "when changing lanes". Sorry, but that DOES NOT HAPPEN! You see these delusional people on court shows. Body work is expensive. And there is no way a moving car "on the highway", as mentioned too, would create a mere scratch... ARGH!

And the witness protection commercial?!?... wt... it makes no sense, not funny, not anything but unrelated and just plain ol' dumb.

Now Lemu the Emu-- at least this is a little better. A legit attempt at humor but again so poorly written. The ad agency they're using does not understand where to stop, when it begins to become not funny and becomes irritatingly dumb.

I will forever boycott any company or product who is this out of touch with its customers (or the human race altogether).

I turn the commercial off and switch the channel

9 Life Alert

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

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!

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.

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.. - LynnConrad

10 Lunchables

That stupid Jackalope, and Platypus. - RadioHead03

The Newcomers

? 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. - Luvbears42

The Contenders

11 Pillow Pets

I hated this whenever I used to watch nick - Luckys

It's garbage.

Just Why?

12 Sonic

Those 2 guys act like idiots.

The commercials have far outlived their "cuteness"!

How are those two idiots still employeed? They were NEVER funny. I always hope they get indigestion.

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

13 Haribo Gold-Bears

We change the channel, mute, or fast forward whenever this most annoying ad comes on.

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

Stupid talking adults, little kid voice overs.

I love this one.

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

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.

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. - wolfrscott97

They're on all the time and are so annoying

Too many of them.

Only good ones are the one with the Gecko. All others are annoying and retarded

I love the Gecko - Luckys

They do ads with imaginary characters and situations and want us to think their insurance is a good value?

16 Kars4Kids

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.

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!

I turn the radio OFF every time I hear this annoying jingle. HATE IT

This jingle is literally the bain of my existence

18 McDonald's

Ah America the land of the fast food.

I love McDonalds as much as the next person but Ronald McDonald is such a pervert!

19 Yoplait

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.

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.

If I hear that fool woman scream out INDEPENDENT CHILD one more time, I am going to have a fit. Really makes me want to boycott Yoplait products, all of them!

20 Farmers Only

Completely mind numbing, brain cell killing, retarded crap! I HATE those commercials! It’s almost as bad as the Old Navy commercials

Ugh! They always portray city people as total douchebags!

City folks just don’t get it

The people who made those ads should serve a mandatory prison sentence of 30 years.

21 Ruby Tuesday

Remember when they pretended to "accidentally " blow up a rival restaurant to promote their own image overhaul?

Did not realize that Ruby Tuesday is still in business...

Absolutely most annoying ad out there. Why is it even still on. Will never eat at Ruby Tuesday because of this.

Rachel Dratch is trouble in these commercials she apparently can't act if that's even what you call that mess what a joke get real

22 Volvo Volvo Volvo Cars, stylized as VOLVO in the logo, is a Swedish luxury vehicle manufacturer established in 1927. It is headquartered on Torslanda in Gothenburg and is a subsidiary of Chinese automotive company Geely.

Using an opera singer to advertise this vehicle is obnoxious, snobbish and a waste of her talent.

Woman's voice grates on the nerves like fingernails on a chalkboard. Can't grab the remote fast enough.

Appealing to the one single moron who would buy their car.

I have no idea what the ads are about. Like, why should I buy this car? What about it is so great?

24 Choice Hotels

I agree with previous comments: stupid, annoying, etc.
I also mute or change channel when ad appears.
I refuse to stay at Choice Hotels; this ad is a reflection of their inept management.

Awful, dumb, stupid, sick. Are those the sort of people that Choice Hotels is trying to attract?

Every time this commercial starts I either change channels or mute the sound because I find this commercial so stupid and annoying...yuk!

Bada book bada boom... SO ANNOYING AND STUPID

The woman doing her Oprah impression is horrible.

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

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

Nation wide is not on your side. - Luckys

Their Superbowl commercial


*drops mic*

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

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

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

Food is great but whats with the monkey

28 Little Caeser's

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 - PICKLEMAN

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

I love the pizza pizza slogan. - RadioHead03

Just what the hell is the horrific grammatical assault on the public with phrases such as “Extra Most best”, for example? I don’t want kids thinking that showing such willful ignorance is even remotely acceptable.

29 Wendy's

THAT LADY.
SHE SCARES ME. - MoldySock

30 Macy's

Macy's has the worst commercials. They're anno yi ng, and I get the impression that they're stuck up. They choose the worst songs. It drives through my ears and I become deaf.

The “badass” woman power theme is a bit played out. Yes women can be anything they want to be...basketball coach, aerospace engineer, conductor...yada yada yada. Tough accomplished women shop at Macy’s. Yep point taken.

31 Cadillac Cadillac Cadillac is a division of the American automobile manufacturer General Motors that designs and builds luxury vehicles.

Every time that "Booty Like a Cadillac" commercial comes on, I throw up a little in my mouth. Even if Cadillac made a decently appealing car, I wouldn't buy it based on this commercial.

All that caterwauling over that little red car, ridiculous and really annoying.

My father is rolling in his grave.

Most annoying “music”, if you can call it that. What does it even mean? Just awful.

32 VRBO

Horrible voice

33 Expedia

The opener is a clue to turn off the sound. I have no idea what the content of the ad is.

The stupid background music with the idiot shouting hey, hey, hey.

The hermit on the beach cracking crab and mermaid jokes is not funny!

34 Health Hotline

First thing they need to do is dump Joe Nameth, who wants to see a old worn out football player. This would make a hugh difference. I gurantee it.

I'm surprised that they haven't been caught scamming yet. - PerfectImpulseX

35 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!

36 Cricket Wireless

Hi...Bye...Hulu runs these commercials just to torture us into buying the commercial free option

So annoying I want to eat a gallon of salt water - PICKLEMAN

So annoying. Should be played all day in ceo office.

37 Gatorade

I like these - Luckys

Dude! Dude! Need I say more? - Ch1

41 GoCompare
42 Dreamlites
43 Custom Ink
44 Stuffies

No one wants those retarded things. - MorganChambz

When I saw the commercials I was like:what are they on drugs? - SanicHeghog123

45 Fairplex in Pomona

Anything they promote is screaming in your face obnoxious

46 Town Fair Tire

Why wasn't this on the list, or at least #1? In every single TFT commercial, they say, "Nobody beats Town Fair Tire! NOBODY! " They brag about how they are the best tire company EVERY SINGLE COMMERCIAL! And they partner with Michelin, which has a mummy as their mascot. They should be called "Frown Unfair Liar." - Trollsfan536

47 Ball Pets
48 Value City Furniture

Littered! Here's some examples:

•a couple gagging and dry heaving over their coffee table

•a woman rolling around on a chair moaning the same word over and over again

49 Machine Zone

It's everywhere. Late night T.V.. Sports games. Even on DAYTIME Cartoon Network AND Adult Swim! - PhoebeThunderman

50 Vauxhall Vauxhall

I've noticed (this might only be on British T.V.) that Nissan make some seriously good ads, and then Vauxhall copy them. Anyone else stumble upon that? Anyone who works for Nissan, perhaps?
