    What commercial do you cringe at when it comes on? There must be a lot.

    Like last night during Family Guy, gah...four car commercials in a row about the new "employee discount", two of them being the exact same one. I never really got that whole employee discount shtick...it came right out of nowhere. I just wanted to watch Family Guy, I don't need a car. >_

    Yeah, but it really annoys me when they are the same exact commercial. And that does happen occasionally. Which episode of Family Guy was on last night?

    @_@ Maybe you need to pay more attention. It's spelled mortgage and debt.

    The Old Navy commercials with that lady who looks surprisingly like Fran Drescher. But I don't think it is her.. Everyone goes about dancing about skirts.

    1. Stupid cellphone commercials
    2. Car Insurances
    3. Car Selling
    4. Clothing commercials that feature stupid songs withing them
    5. Ringtone offers
    6. 1-min. long commercials

    I would list more, but I'm just listing those main ones that are shown much to often.

    I hate all Geico commericals!!!! They are so stupid! Though I do like that one part with the fitness instructor guy, he's using that weird machine and says "YOU CAN DO IT!"

    Aww, I think the Geico commercials are great (well, most of them). Tiny House is very realistic and sometimes I still think it's a real upcoming reality show.

    You mean the one where the guy plays around with a bunch of picture frames? That's also my favorite.
