    The, "Fee fi fo fo fum, look out retirement, here we come!". The older woman and man take turns taking the microphone and everyone breaks into dance. When it comes on I scramble for the remote to change it otherwise it puts me in a really bad mood. Mad

    Worst part of that Gabriel's pizza advertisement is that it teases 2 or 3 times with what seems like an ending. But then it restarts.

    Honda Civic commercial. The guy's voice makes me want to put the clicker through the tv.

    Whoop.

    Commercials in Europe are the best. I can basically sit an entire afternoon just watching the competitions every year.

    The Skittles commercial with the son that has a skittles tree growing out of his stomach drives me nuts for some raisin.

    I hate the recent Subway commercials. Jared didn't bother me that much...why the Diddle do they have MONKEYS selling SANDWICHES!??!?!? Diddle YOU MONKEYS!!!!!!!

    Also, as mentioned, the Gabriel's commercials are abhorrent. All a pizza commercial has to do is show me closeups of pizzas covered with pepperoni and bacon.

    Or the one where he holds a midget up to the ceiling? Something powerful must have been involved in inspiring that one.
