Absolutely. That commercial was sooooo two months ago, I mean gag me with a spoon. Totally. Far out. (sorry - I have no idea where that sudden incoherent valley girl talk came from)

Emus are good eating, but should never be a focal point in a commercial.

I've been sick of it for months. I'm tired of the dumb beer commercials as well.

I've hated that commercial since I first saw it. The noise that "mama" makes is like a drill bit going through my temple. I hate most cell phone ads though, especially ones where people are giving each other the peace sign, or smugly doing business while getting a massage.

Beer Commercials are funny occasionaly, most of the time they're pretty annoying too though.

That beer commercial with the guy seeing double of everything is pissing me off. Usually even the lamest of beer commercials has something to do with beer, but this one just gets on my nerves.

There's no way that guy is qualified to drive. He's got double vision and is knocking down beers.

Any commercial with twins in bathing suits isn't all that bad.

Just the look of the guy with the ant-burners on is worth a laugh everytime I see it.

The emus is stupid and totally unbelievable. Like a freaking cell phone will be loud enough in NYC to be used to gather up emus that have run all over Manhattan. Crap.

The other thing that ticks me off is all the hockey themed ads from Java and Powerade and ABC promos for the next game during the game. If you want to attract more viewers show these ads during other shows! Idiots.

I guess I'm the only one who doesn't find the Keith's commercials funny.

All he's doing is ripping off Mike Myers...ever since Austin Powers came out, it's now "funny" to have some guy yelling in a Scottish accent. Especially the "First Date - Not going well" part. Get some damn originality, people...

I wish the PowerAde commercial got updated with new footage each season. Cory Stillman is still a Flame in one of the hits, and in both Cullimore clips you can tell how old they are because it still has the Lightning's old hard to read paintbrush numbers.

I too think they are annoying.


Now how about those Vote Miller ads?

They're a travis-sham-mockery!

That's the walkie talkie thing, right? I'll take annoying commercial for 1000.

Can anybody explain to me just what the heck the whole purpose of these things are? Why is this a feature?

I need the cell phone with me to use the walkie talkie function. So does the other party I'm calling. So why the (*!@#$& don't they just make a cell call? It's not like they're in the middle of the ocean making a walkie talkie call, when cell service is unavailable. So clearly there's a whole walkie talkie network needed as well.

This whole thing makes no sense.
