Commercials are responsible for bringing us into a world where someone has a need, and that need is magically fulfilled. Typically, a talking mop or anthropomorphic animal plays Sherpa, leading them to consumer satisfaction. Sometimes. It's those other times we have to tell ourselves, "This is awful and I refuse."


Reddit user, u/golde62, wanted to know which ads set you off when they asked:

What commercial did you dislike so much that you now avoid the product?

Let's Manipulate Those Heartstrings

Lens Crafters.

They ran this sappy commercial with this little kid in glasses, toying with emotions by saying they helped him when he had congenital myopia, like it was some terrible disease.

It just means he was born nearsighted.

F-ck you, Lens Crafters.

When They Invade Your Music

Those f-cking "Tide and stains just don't go together" commercials on Pandora.

If I have to listen to

Millennials...

TikTok.

Never have I hated something so much that I know so little about

Automated-Waffles

Pure Irrationality

Anything that mentions "Winning a J.D. Power Award"

As far as I can tell the award is purely based on opinion and is f-cking useless involving anything else.

Mainly car companies talk about this award

I don't care if a bunch of people like the product is it actually good?

The second I hear that award mentioned I stay the f-ck away because that award is not worth bragging about

We Promise They're Not Actors. Pinky Swear.

Those Chevy "Real People" commercials are really annoying.

This just feels like a reliable car.

For Someone So Friendly, He Sure Is Hateable

The General (insurance).

"For the best low rates you can get online, go to the general and save some time." F-ck that company.

Looking At You, Most Coffee Commercials...

Anything that uses an alarm clock noise.

Like, who thinks it's a good idea to shove the unanimous sound of dread every human being knows into some commercial about soap? I just associate that feeling with those products now.

Skittles Just Takes It Too Far

That Skittles pox commercial that's been around forever.

Just f-cking stop it Skittles, I don't want to taste the rainbow that's growing on someone's skin.

Short of having a shopping addiction, no one actually likes spending money on stuff.

Why would you ever willingly give it away? It's your money!

Which might be why it feels so bad when you have to spend money of something that should be free from the beginning. People/ corporations are going to chase that cheddar, though, so there's little you can do besides complain, which frankly might be the best thing the internet is for.

There are humane ways to tell someone to go home after a... liaison.

How can one be so rude after being so intimate?

I'm not saying you have to snuggle and profess love, but damn, a quick... "thanks, I hope life is kind to you" goes a long way.

Redditor sumyungdood wanted to hear the tea about the times they had to tell a lover to take a hike. They asked:

"What is the worst way someones asked you to leave after sex?"
