AT&T rUin-Verse Ads - Thu, 12/27/12 9:28 PM
I'm tired of being bombarded by their awful, annoying ads.  I wouldn't use their product just because of their television commercials.

feel the same with the progressive flo ads   enough already. also up here in the buffalo area we got a  fucillo car dealership that has a chev ,toyota and has annoying ads .always yelling and screaming and has bimbos with him.i'd ride a bike in the winter before buying from him.

I keep a running list of products/services I will never buy because of their commercials. My current least favourite is the ones for Breathe Right nasal strips. No, sir, I'm sorry. Science does not, in fact, call what you have "the nightly stuffy nose thing".

I'm in, they think if they annoy you you will buy, or they just don't think.

There are just so many annoying commercials, especially by phone companies, I couldn't even tell you which ones are by AT & T.

The two idiots sitting in a car in front of Sonic's tops my list.

I'm waiting for the Humana ad featuring these two on feeding tubes in an acute coronary care unit!

I cringe when I see Flo, I cannot fathom the appeal!

It shows you how subjective the ads can be, because I find these commercials to be funny. But,since we don't have very many Sonics in this area, the commercials are infrequent.  If they are shown in your area all the time,I would probably get tired of them, too.

Are you refering to the ones with the ever younger children talking about how bad they had it in their day? Agree 100%, I hate them.

The only ones I like and always look forward to a new one is the Capital One card that has the Vikings. Duluth Trading which is a Midwest company similar to LL Bean, has some pretty funny ones too! My problem is that many of the annoying ones are repeated so often, like every commercial break. That drives me nuts!

I don't have a TV. Solves that problem.

YES, by George.
 
I agree with Flo and the Flo lookalike on some other commercial.
 
On the other hand I love "some" of the Geico commercials.
 
One thing the ad people should do although it costs a tremendous amount.. change 'em up!

I don't, either. Unfortunately, I live in a house where the TV goes on first thing in the morning and doesn't get shut off until after the news at night, so if I want to spend any time in my living room I'm stuck with it.

Anyone who does not go to youtube and search for 'banned commercials' is missing some good entertainment.
