    ...or commercials that open with a blaring alarm clock. No one likes that noise. If I can associate your product with one of those ads, I'll avoid it. Diddle that Dung.

    I tell you...Gabriels is the worst. It's cringe-worthy.

    "Where's the beef!" might be the most beloved of the all-time-worst ads ever. I never "got it" why it was so popular.

    It's like that United Furniture Warehouse commercial... I think that's only in Toronto though... annoying, but you remember it.

    That damn Gabriel song has got to die. I might actually lose my mind if I hear it again.

    I refuse to order their pizza until they change it to something better, and I love their pizza.

    Actually, investors in that company feel the same way but the President is too much of an egomaniac to recuse himself from advertising.

    They should make an ad for Bert's where Eugene throws Marshy under a bus, or where Eugene is operating a demolition truck to tear down Marshy's.
