Worst Commercials of the 2010s

Here, we move on to the 2010s, where if the commercial your company makes is exceedingly bad, it will only earn itself the meme treatment. So let us see when the camera recordings got better, only to see more annoying details.
The Top Ten
1 White People (Health Hotline)

I remember watching this corny commercial back in 2015. The character movements are nonexistent. The commercial looks like it had a budget of $10 dollars to make. The commercial begins with a stock image of a girl saying, "Grandma, can you come out and play?" Then the commercial shows another stock image of a grandma that looks nothing like the art style of the girl. "Sure, Ellie! Oh my! You might want to come here and help grandma." "What's the matter, grandma? Can't you stand?" "Oh sorry, Honey. It's my knees. They don't work the way they used to." The commercial cuts to yet another stock image of an aching grandma that looks nothing like the one we just saw. The commercial then shows us stock footage of people aching and people playing with their child at the park while showing a number to call on the screen. After that, we see the poorly drawn characters one last time. "Grandma! Slow down! I can't keep up!" Once again, the grandma we saw a while ago is now on a skateboard and once again, looks nothing like what she did. "Maybe you can use a knee brace too, Ellie! Huh! Catch me if you can, kiddo!" This is a big excuse of a commercial. Even a 12-year-old kid who currently has an F in his digital media class can make a better commercial than this. That's how awful this commercial is. Health Hotline, stay away from me!

2 Protegent (Some Trojan Company in India)

This became a meme in august 2017, due to the mascot just being a repainted version of a little kids show character. Specifically, Super Why. If that isn't bad enough, the rapping in the other commercial is lazy, The lips don't even Sync right!

Who would take a Super Why ripoff product seriously?

I'm not Super Why, I'm my own original character, Proto!

3 Creepy Happy Meal Boxes (McDonalds)

This was made in the 2010s. This was when "creepy" mascots were also just downright Annoying. Enjoy your creepy meal now!

I'm not happy about Happy (the Happy Meal, not that guy from Tamagotchi the Movie 2). In fact, I'm disappointed in him.

Pennywise is a happy meal box confirmed.

4 Freak Out, Let It Go (Discover Card)

I am sick of getting this ad, the 2 women in this are easily the most annoying ad characters I have ever seen, and I mean worse than Flo. It has disabled comments and more dislikes than likes on Youtube.

It even show this today in 2019, in am sick of it, all they do is scream so annoying!

5 Puppy Monkey Baby (Mountain Dew)

If I saw this thing in my house I"m getting my shot gun out, just who the hell in their right mind would come up with this abomination.

Wow, I had actually forgotten that this abomination was a thing.

6 Rick Perry's Strong (Rick Perry)
7 Nationwide's Dead Boy Advert (Nationwide)

I mean Seriously, Nationwide. This is the SUPER BOWL. The time when companies bust out their biggest creativity and humourous ideas for commercials. What do you do? Depress us trying to prevent home injuries. Why at the super bowl though?

8 Toxic Masculinity (Gillette)
9 Dogs with human teeth (Dentastix)
10 Back to School (East Hills)

"... Get yourself an Outfit". That's how untalented the actors are.

The Contenders
11 Kids Behaving Badly Without Halos (Halos)

This is a series of commercials where Halos takes it Overboard to sell their product. Basically it features little kids threatening and scream at their parents because they don't have oranges. Basically, they try to make little kid's behavior dependent on their product. Now you know what I mean by overboard

What does not having a stupid orange have to do with how you act?

12 Giffing Out (Kmart)

The internet culture belongs EXCLUSIVELY to the internet. Kmart is not the store that exactly lives up to target's Success. So putting gifs in the media is not a good approach for a better reputation.

13 Rewind the Future (Children's Childcare of Atlanta Strong4Life)

This commercial is so depressing. Having autism, seeing the woman shoving chips down a baby's mouth to make him stop crying almost made me cry myself. I watched this researching for an assignment on the Australian Heart Foundation, and this helped me a lot. It helped me see some people don't give a crap about their health. That some people want to make people happy by making the worst decisions.

I reckon the REAL purpose of this so-called "Kid Friendly Commercial" is to scare people into making healthy decisions. Because being nice isn't going to work. I think they went too far on that one. Good thing this isn't shown in any Australian channels.

We all know how to be healthy, how to lose weight, how to swap choices, and what to do to get to that point. There are still hundreds of thousands, maybe millions, of people eating unhealthy food and sitting on their ass all day, every day, all year round, because they don't have any time for the gym when they have kids and a full-time job, they can't afford to make better choices, or they just don't want to. So I bet the Children's Healthcare of Atlanta Strong4Life wondered, "what else works, then? Scare tactics. The important part is keeping people alive, even if they have to be edgier about it."

I think that's complete bullcrap, because they got so obsessed with making kids healthier that they didn't realize scaring them off and/or reducing them to tears isn't going to cut it. Put a more kid-friendly approach, I'd say. If this commercial would scare me into almost crying, then kids won't stand a chance with this. Stop making children cry just to promote healthy living for pete's sake! This is why I don't trust health organizations that put things that are too much to handle for some people at all.

14 Box vlog (Progressive)

Yet another terrible commercial with the creepy ass box.

15 Whole Wheat Waffles (Progressive)

How come this box has eyes and a mouth? Boxes can't get mutations! Is this how boxes are now or can boxes now get mutations this box can also talk boxes talk now? And now they can move? What's next boxes vlogging? Oh wait that already happened with box vlog like I asked in this toptens wait boxes can vlog? What's next boxes can fly?

Who the hell thought this was a good idea?The progressive box is pure nightmare fuel. Even as a little kid in the 2010s, I always thought this box was very disturbing.

Progressive is annoying, and now leaves us questioning why they make sentient boxes

16 UrbanProof Engernized (Nissan Juke)
17 Peek-A-Boos! (Ty)
18 Scream Collector's BFF Remix Part 2 (West Edmonton Mall)
19 Toyota GT86 (The Real Deal)
20 Groupon (Tibet)
21 Stoner Sloth (New South Wales Department of Premier and Cabinet)

Stoner Sloth honestly sounds more like the name of a Mega Man X maverick than a slur used to mock cannabis users to me.

22 Come and See (PBS Kids)
23 Kars4Kids Theme Song (Kars4Kids)

Those kids can't even play correctly, my 4 year old cousin can play better than them
