Esurance are the cartoon ones, I think he mans progressive lady also. I feel like my wanting to hate the commercials are much higher than my actual hate for them. I don't know why, they are quite annoying.

at least there isn't an unsettling commercial like, repHresh in the middle of a game.

I thought so too, then I realized the little girl is the same girl from Epitaph One (Dollhouse epilogue) and it became a bit more entertaining.

Not really the problem of Sharks broadcasts that much as Versus, but what does it say about them, when all they advertise is the armed forces and "male enhancement" products... The male enhancement product ads are the worst, they're just terrible in every possible way.

Obviously I don't get to see any other network ads besides the ones I get from ESPN360's Center Ice package, but the culture shock is huge for someone whose daily tv ad dose is generally quite mundane.

[QUOTE=vilpertti;22794425]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.

The two saving-grace exceptions to a uniformly horrendous lineup are the beer commercials! How is it that both Dos Equis and Corona manage to produce at least mildly entertaining commercials time after time, in contrast to the utter drivel that always comes from American breweries (at least since the end of the frog-and-ferret ones, years ago).

I LOVE the Dos Equis "Most Interesting Man" commercials. It's shockingly refreshing to see a simple, class ad campaign like that, rather than just T&A to sell beer.

I hate the stupid Comcast commercial about battling over remotes. Makes me want to stab children. It's like some sort of manchurian candidate trigger.

I keep hoping the Happy Pony Remote Mexican-standoff will end up in some kind of Resevoir Dogs-style bloodbath leaving everyone wiped out on the floor. Then granny can come in afterwards and watch her show. (or even granny getting splattered by a stray shot.)

Ha! This one kind of comes close!
(anyone made squeamish by totally obviously fake shooting may not want to watch.)

That is my new favorite commercial.... I always liked the happy pony line, but seeing grandma get it got me spitting my drink out.

The commercial that annoys me the most is actually one that is seemingly played on Versus and NBC during the playoffs like 4 times each break. It's those short Enterprise Rent-A-Car ones with the car driving along a cliff covered in flipping paper! We'll pick you up!

Could make a drinking game out of the Enterprise commercials.

UGH. I found the one that I HATE so much

I hate the Frontier Ford commercial with the two ladies walking around downtown dissing Toyota. It's so poorly thought out and executed that it's embarrassing.

Just found a well-timed article about killing people with a remote control:

This. I don't even drink beer, but I find Corona and Dos Equis ads to be tasteful, and creative. Three cheers for not being outrageously over-the-top. I'm actually surprised Corona still runs the X-mas Palm Tree ad.

I agree, I like that the Corona ads are simple, quiet, and usually subtly clever. The Dos Equis ads are usually also pretty simple, and often clever. Without yelling at me or being incredibly low-brow.
