Worst commercials during Sharks' broadcasts

OK, so maybe this doesn't deserve a thread of its own, but I couldn't resist. I love watching the Sharks, but unfortunately I have to be subjected to the same idiotic commercials over and over again during the broadcasts. To cope with this necessary evil, I ask you to nominate your pick for the most awful commercials that get aired during Sharks games.

My nominations:

#1: shop.nhl.com

Only the marketing geniuses at the NHL could have come up with this outright disaster. This is what you get when you cast your talent with the actors who got cut from the local community theater. Honestly, the mom in this one has got to be on crack:

#2: Jackson Rancheria

Endless parade of props and costumes for the fat guy and the little person, like some kind of carnival freak show.

Definitely.

I would also like to add "that's so gay" and "remote control battle" ads.

Yes, of course, the infamous "happy pony" commercial. That could be number 1.

I'm pretty glad he stopped trying to be funny.

The "Sandy from Fremont Bank" one was the worst of all time though. Why was she dressed as a doctor??!?!

This commercial has all the cliches: a little boy named Billy, a girl that wants to watch something involving ponies, a man with a wife way out of his league, and a grandma that randomly shows up.

Nothing can beat that zombie Steve Moskowitz or Casa de Mini Storage, though. Go SHHHaaaaAAAArrrrRKS!

I'll throw the Pizza Whisperer out there, even though they don't annoy me the way some others do because... hooray for pizza! My vote goes to remote control.

American car ads... Why are american cars often so ugly? I mean, for example Ford makes some really nice looking cars in Europe, but their American models... blegh.

i don't enjoy the hockey export one where the girl walks on the ice barefoot with her trenchcoat and exposes herself 'flasher style' and the two guys have the most ingenuine reaction ever

I'm not too fond of the Hockey Xport one. The one with the expected nude lady but is really wearing a jersey.
