I'm getting pretty tired of the commercial for I think University of Phoenix, where the girl is singing "If I only Had a Brain" (except it's "because I have a brain"). That voice is annoying.

I can't stand the Liberty Mutual Insurance commercials where the people just don't understand how insurance works and want everything covered for nothing.

You know, once you drive your new car off the lot, it loses value. Don't whine about the insurance companies not turning a blind eye to that fact.

Yeah, esp. when they say, "what do we do, drive 3/4 of a car?".

My gf just got me a product from Oxy. This thread makes me think of some old Oxy 10 commercial where some guy thinks he's flying a war plane and bombing the zits. I call that guy the "Oxy Moron."

I do the same to my girlfriend. Hopefully they don't meet up and form some Throw Momma from the Train style scheme to off us.

My ex-wife always got annoyed at the earworms I used to give her.

It seems like some insurers are trying to come off as the "understanding" company. Cure Auto Insurance (in NJ and PA only, AFAIK) has ads that stress:

CURE cares mostly about how well you drive, so we refuse to adopt discriminatory income rating factors, like education, home ownership, and occupation, that most other insurers use.
