Most hated advertisements
Posted 11/12/15
Every time an ad plays on youtube its 1 of 2 things: Geico or Geico in Spanish(I dont speak spanish). I have every Geico commercial memorized. The amount of Geico in my life is driving me insane. What are you guys' most hated advertisements?

The worst ad I have ever seen on crunchyroll was the initial project runway junior ad. It came up 60% of the time for like three days, and I could not take it.

I have to admit, for current ads, it's hard to top the "We're wacky and RANDOM!, because talking about insurance is too boring!" Geico ads for sheer despicability--
But just when I think their Inexplicable-non-sequitir ads ("Did you know you can save on insurance?" "No, but did you know Godzilla eats Snickers bars?") couldn't get any farther off the subject with those two guitar guys, they bring on the screaming goat. It's what they do.

As for the most despised ad of all time, Twix might be up there after they had to pull their "Two for Me, None For You" ad after the audience didn't quite warm to the "hip" depictions of Why It's Good To Be Selfish.
David Spade had a nice short run haranguing viewers about saving money on AT&T collect calls, Anna Paquin still gets kidded about her 9-yo. moppet self dancing around rhapsodizing about "digitized information" for MCI (what were they selling, anyway?), Ronald McDonald going nightclubbing for the ArchD is considered one of the most misfired of all time by execs, and Jerry Seinfeld schmoozing with Microsoft customers turned out to be a one-night wonder after it was an expensive advertising disaster.

But most hated?: That would be software retailer (remember those? ) Egghead.com--at least I think that was the one--that tried to appeal to their "hipster" demographic by literally trolling the audience with a smug host firing hamsters out of cannons, tattooing babies, and setting wolves on football teams, ending with "Send Complaints to: Egghead.com"
Yoooouuuu got 'em, buster--Be careful what you freakin' wish for. Okay, note to ourselves: You can troll on the Internet where everything is free, but do NOT pick fights with the customers before they buy the product.

The "guy with the Southern accent" is an actor playing the late Harland Sanders (aka The Colonel), and even taking company potshots at the John Goodman parodies.

There was a real one, y'know, who founded the company: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wk4Eq8IcQMk
He's not just a statue on every Tokyo street.

But if you save %15 or more on car insurance each time you watch it think of how low your rates are!

99% of all advertising is beyond acceptable in any form. I hate commercials so much, they just seem like the most disingenuous and least pure form of communication, ever. That being said, I don't hate them if they're entertaining or funny.
