Top 10 Worst Types of Commercials

You know those little ads in between the shows you watch? I know, they are annoying, but there are just some types that are just... Ergh.

The Top Ten

1 Pet Shelter Commercials

Yeah, we all know how Imagine by John Lennon is played with this. These are the type of commercials that have you flipping the channel for a good three minutes before flipping back. - MontyPython

They're the thpe of commercial that makes you change the channel right away, They're not only a minute or two long, but they have the depressing music and all to accompany the pictures and videos of abused animals. They do capture your heart, but capturing your heart and making you cry isn't exactly a desirable way of persuading someone. - Turkeyasylum

Yet another emotionally manipulative commercial. I care about the animals and all, but are you seriously going to depress me like that when I'm having a good day?

If there is an advert for Save the Donkey, followed by a Give African children water, I'm sorry but I would help the children - kaisietoo

2 Anti-Smoking Commercials

I mean, I don't support smoking at all and I don't smoke, (I use Popeye candy to pretend, haha.) but come on. These commercials are just too much to watch! Especially the ones where they tell you the person dies in the end. My heart just sinks! - MontyPython

Unfortunately they seem necessary. Just as revealing the real danger and consequences of drunk driving, texting while driving, and other harsh realities that were often ignored and kept silent in the past - Billyv

Because one day, my boomerang is gonna come back, and I need both my hands to catch it. Boomerang! - Merilille

I don't support smoking but it's kind of creepy when a girl with a hole in her neck comes on at midnight

3 Texting and Driving Commercials

A good way to scare us to stop at once. It's all normal at first, then suddenly, BAM! You're scarred for life. It's tough to think about too. These commercials are just disturbing! The one that scared me badly is the one that says, - MontyPython

They're scary! An animated one I watched a few yrs ago gave me a nightmare.

4 The Ones That Are Boring, Long, and Just Don't Make Any Sense

There's one that keeps popping up about energy expenses in paper mills or something... Put that on a loop and it may cure my insomnia! - keycha1n

There's the one with a guy in a king costume and I'm like DUDE I don't GET AT ALL

Like some infomercials. - Luxam

Ugh I hate these - kaisietoo

5 Buzzkill Commercials

These are the commercials that represent any subject and at first you're all happy and excited, then suddenly they just throw a bucket of tears at ya. - MontyPython

6 The Flipping Terrifying Ones

Another one that can be about any subject really, but it just scares ya! I can't stand them! - MontyPython

They always put it in where kids watch there shows and it makes theree life full of bad stuff like me I'm just terrified of everything now

7 Cheesy Local Commercials

Those commercials that are only played in your hometown and only you know, but are so annoying and cheesy! They are poorly done and always have this annoying jingle that never leaves your head! - MontyPython

I actually like local commercials. They make me laugh about how bad they are... - Turkeyasylum

Canadian small town commercials have this grating forced sense of humour put on by people obviously reciting a script. - PetSounds

So annoying - kaisietoo

8 Dating Sites

ANY OF THESE COMMERCIALS MAKE ME MAD. May it be EHarmony, Match, or... Dare I say it... FARMERSONLY.COM. These support getting together with random strangers who only like you for your interests and might actually be an axe murderer. I just think dating sites are for people who are too lazy and impatient to meet someone in reality. - MontyPython

You don't have to be lonely

9 The Commercials That Feature Someone You Despise

It might be someone you know personally, someone who's famous, you name it! - MontyPython

10 Political Commercials V 1 Comment

The Contenders

11 The Ones With the Annoying Jingle

The really annoying ones that get stuck in your head even when you don't want them to - kaisietoo

For the best night sleep in the whole wide world visit my pillow. Dot com

Amazon Prime - Pizzaboy456

8-7-7 2-4-1 *beep beep beep beep* Luna! - mayamanga

12 The Perfume Ones

They don't make any sense at all

Haha who added that comment? Should have said - Britgirl

*insert sexual word here* Perfume! It's so *insert sexual word here* and *insert sexual word here*!
*screen cuts to a half-naked woman* - RiverClanRocks

13 Pharmaceutical Commercials

And all the possible side effects that often seem worse than the affliction. Push drugs, regardless if they are really necessary, have been proven very helpful, do other harm, unknown effects, or if a doctor actually thinks the patient needs them. Push the idea that pills are the useful solution to anything and everything. So sad that so many of the youth (like the older) are given or take drugs for their problems - such as lack of sleep, lack of energy and both.
Pharmaceutical companies in the US are such a rich and powerful influence on the economy, with the focus on on-going treatments of symptoms much preferable to finding cures. - Billyv

Want to start sleeping again? Take this medicine! Side affects are only hyperactivity, chance of fever, chance of TB, rashes, hives, swelling, and blurred vision. Take the pill every day, three times a day. Call your doctor if you start to develop suicidal thoughts, shows signs of cancer, or show any other major diseases. Call your doctor if you fall into a coma or have medical diseases. - Turkeyasylum

Take this pill to make your arm stop hurting but you might go into a comma or DIE or something. - Cheese567

14 The Ones That Involve Memes

The literal definition of Erghhh. the last thing the world needs are memes when I'm watching the superbowl.

15 Money-Related Commercial

Are there any other kinds? - Billyv

16 Fast Food Commercials That Make Their Food Look Healthy V 1 Comment
17 The Annoying Commercials About Poor Children

If this annoys you so much why not Help the poor children?!What a shame that these poor children dare annoy you - Billyv

This is just rude. I know these commercials aren't fun to watch, but you can't say these commercials are annoying. - MontyPython

Why don't you help the children and animals so these commercials can stop? Complaining about the commercials won't help. At all. - 906389

How is this any worse than pet shelter commercials? The poor animals in shelters have gone through worse things!

18 Insurance
19 Drug Commercials
20 Cologne Commercials

It always just shows a handsome guy saying or doing something that has absolutely nothing to do with the cologne he's advertising. They're not bad, just incredibly irrelevant. - Songsta41

These commercials are quite annoying. I guess you could say they don't make scents.Get it? - Garythesnail
