Since I've been unemployed, I've been watching way more TV than I ever have. And I'm noticing that commercials are really horrible and played way too many times. Here are a few examples of ones that I loathe:
Safe Auto Oh my God this one is so annoying. "1-800-Safe Auto...." Seriously, we know! That damn jingle is in the head of everyone in Chicago. We don't need you to play it everytime you go to commercial!
McDonald's Filet of Fish Seriously, this one is the worst. "Give me back that little fish. Give me that fish." I find my self singing the stupid jingle in my head more times than I ever care to admit.
White Castle First of all: gross. I think White Castle is the most disgusting place. It stinks in there, and looks like way more grease than I'd ever like to ingest. But the commercial where people are being followed by a White Castle bag is just creepy. I shudder whenever that one comes on.
Peter Francis Geraci This one is so freaking annoying, I can't stand it. Peter has probably the most annoying, monotone voice I have ever heard. How is he in sales? Why isn't he sitting behind his desk and letting someone more personable do the commercials? We will never know.
Progressive The girl on these commercials is so peppy, I can't stand it. And the guys are such dorks! I mean I know they want to get people's attention, but come on. That's just annoying.
What commercials do you find rediculous and annoying?
A former New Yorker-turned Tennesseean-turned Chicagoan who sometimes keeps himself so busy, he barely has a moment to sit down. Of course I sit for long enough to keep this blog. I'm a self-proclaimed news and fact junkie, and I love writing about funny, touching, amazing, annoying, crazy, or just plain boring things that I encounter in this crazy city we know as Chicago.
