Worst commercial on TV (Sponsored by GEICO)

Worst commercial on TV (Sponsored by GEICO)

You know that commercial where the soda vendor is in the stadium, the guy orders a 7-Up, and the vendor gives him a substitute beverage (presumably Sprite) and says "same thing, right?" The customer then spits out the offending liquid, and says "no! It's not the same!" He then picks up the vendor, Twisted Sister starts playing, and the fans pass him out of the stadium crowd-surfing style to a store where he can get 7-Up because all lemon-lime drinks "are not the same"? I just wanted to say I really really really hate that commercial. I cringe whenever it comes on. Have you ever had a commercial where something about it just rubbed you the wrong way and seeing the ad actually angered you?

I believe it was about 2-3 years ago the truck commercials (Ford I think) busted out Aerosmith and "JUST PUSH PLAY!!"


AARRRRGGGHHHHHH!!!!!!!

I'm turning green just thinking about it.

I'm here boys. What do we need? Looks like Tank wants to punch somebody. Well, my friends, feel free to continue this thread in "punchables." Don't feel any shame about this because violent fantasies don't really hurt anybody. Doctor's orders.

The worst commercial in television history, without question, ran about a year ago. It was a McDonalds commerical for the new turkey rap, with a sort of rap song sung by some lady who was going to a baby shower. For those of you who remember this commerical, you have to agree it is at least one of the top 15, 20 worst commercials of all time, because I know there are a lot of other horrible ones out there. This was the only one that used to make me scream "NOOOOO!!!" and scramble for the remote.

I remember the one you're talking about. I'd put in the worst-10 list, with McDonalds probably owning more sports in the worst-100 than any other company out there. The "get your hands off my chicken selects" guy was atrocious, and the fact that they made a second commercial using him proves how little McDonalds understands the concept of marketing.

The McDonalds ads featuring Calvin also were terrible. You mean people will look up to you in "the community" if your cooking fucking fries at mcDonalds? Ummm, no.

Has anyone seen the new Burger King commercial with Hootie in it? It is climbing the charts as the worst commercial ever. And in case you missed it, thats Brooke Burk in the background on the swing... very fucked up.

Yeah, I've seen it. Has it really been that long since Darius Rucker and the Blowfish were the next sure thing? Instead of a one-hit wonder they were a one-album wonder.

Brooke Burke could convince me to do many things, but buy a fast food burger isn't one of them.

All I know is I want to live in a land where breasts grow on trees. I just don't want them to be made into sandwiches.
