Does anyone remember these? The Quizno's "Spongmonkeys"-- people used to hate them. I think it's pretty hilarious in retrospect.

Re: Commercials That Cause Tilt

The Land Rover commercial that has the standard "professional driver, closed course, do not attempt" disclosure and then the dude drives in a parking garage, stops at a valet stand, drives on a highway and then drives on a dirt road.

You mean I can't do any of those things? Wow, your car is super hard to drive if I can't do those things. Tilts me so ****ing much.

the buffalo wild wings ones - they basically say a bunch of hardcore sports fans would want their team to miss a FG just so the game is extended.

Any commercial that tells you to call in the next 20 minutes and We'll double your order for the same price. Bite me!

I forgot to mention the Hot Cakes in my spoiler. If they stepped up their pancake game by making those oh-so light-n-fluffy mother ****ers just a little bigger- and started including chocolate chips, blueberries, and real maple syrup- I'd prolly never cook again.

Re: Commercials That Cause Tilt

For those of us in Canada, Rogers' commercials tilts the hell out of me. Why they believe that making their customers look like complete morons is a good marketing technique is beyond me.

This series of commercials drove me nuts (each part is more tilting than the last):
Part 1:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gSpD366Uwug

Part 2:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aRMCQ...eature=related

Part 3: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X7dld...eature=related

Re: Commercials That Cause Tilt

Any commercial which emasculates men, which is like half of them. Just very irritating to watch. It never really had much potential to be funny in the first place, but god has it been run into the ground.

This commercial is annoying! Even after watching the commercial 4-5 times I still didn't know what the product was for.

I can't think of a specific one off hand, but they are really annoying.
These are typically like IBM commercials or something and each person has a different accent. So tilting. They often feature hot phrases like "global network", "today's industry", "solutions", and "forefront", and other stupid bull****.

Almost every commercial tilts the **** out of me so I really can't type much itt or else I'll never stop.

One type that tilts me is any commercial featuring the ubiquitous fresh-faced half-black, half-white woman. You've all seen her. Nobody knows her name and "she" is composed of about 1,000 women who all look identical. She's the hottest commodity! I can see meetings with people going "How can we appeal to both white people and black people (the only ones who matter)?" "I know! Find a mixed-race woman!" "Brilliant! She's neutral to both sides, and not only that but we only have to hire 1 person!"

DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE

This is basically "her", as "her" is composed of hundreds of different anonymous, fresh-faced, olive-skinned women who apparently make a living doing commercials which appeal to SO MANY PEOPLE

All commercials, but especially all car commercials, and especially the "Zoom, zoom!" Mazda ads, the "car turns her on" Cadillac ad, and the "Look out, big truck coming!" Ford truck ad. Someone asked what demographic xyz ad was aimed at -- all ads are aimed at stupid, superficial people with room on their credit cards.

Yeah the IBM buzzword nonsense enrages me. "Building a smarter planet" gtfo. Impress me with substance, show me something you've created, don't feed me your airy nonsense.

Re: Commercials That Cause Tilt

All the new drug commercials you see now. Like I heard one on the radio for Nuvigil, for people with "sleep shift disorder". Yes, people who work the night shift get a drug now. Pretty much all the side effects cause death, but ask your doctor if Nuvigil is right for you.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q6uQ9...55A8ED6596737C

Also, commercials where they make some bull**** claim that doesn't mean anything. The classic example is Denorex shampoo. "It tingles so I know it's working." WTF? I bet diluted battery acid would tingle too.
