Annoying commercials like that guarantee I won't use that brand anymore.
There was a jingle in the local grocery store that used to play over and over again every 6 minutes. Charmin. A woman singing about how clean her asshole is, because she uses charmin. I hated the damn bears, but I hated her more.

And if they feel the need to make annoying commercials can they at least not repeat them every few minutes??

Another one, from the National Highway And Traffic Safety Board.

It shows a dad getting with a crying baby, and he's got this plastic tube thingy. He then sticks one end into the baby's nose and sucks on the tube, then (understandably) gags.

The voiceover says, "If you care enough to suck the snot out of their nose at 4AM, then you should care enough to check nhstb.org for the right car seat."

Ok, this one is for an investment company.

It opens with an older man telling his wife that he just found his dream car. He's holding a newspaper with some kind of sporty/classic car pictured for sale.

Cut to the older couple sitting around the table with their grown-ass son, who tells them that he just got his dream job across the country, and that "she'll [meaning his daughter/their granddaughter] have to stay with you to finish the school year."

Quick cut to grandpa talking to his financial advisor, then a little bit showing the granddaughter living with them.

Finally, the ad wraps with grandpa walking her outside, where he shows her a sensible car, then hands her the keys.

"But grandpa, what about your dream car?"

"Oh, honey, this is my dream."

Besides the sappiness, I really hated the, "Oh well, she's living with you now, old man" attitude, like the older couple didn't even have a choice, and on top of that, the indication that they had to foot the bill for her care!
