Any ad from this company. It's hard to imagine that this is a real commercial, and not a Saturday Night Live parody.

Rocketing instantly to the top of my Most Annoying list is the new "An Army of One" TVC, by and for America's lawyer, Geoffrey Fieger. An "anthem"-style spot with orchestra and chorus singing an inspired hymn, and dramatic shots of Fieger in many very serious and concerned poses, moving among and gesturing at iconic landmarks within the city of Detroit.
Pegging the needle on the Cringe-o-Meter.

any fucking commercial that starts with stupid sound effects/ringtones to get the viewer's attention. The State Farm one bastardizing Barry Manilow's classic jingle into a four-note ringtone, the high-pitched "NERDS!!!!" at the start of Nerdwallet ads, to name just two. Here in Toledo for years this property auctioneer named Pamela Rose advertises during less desirable timeslots and always starts her ads with a doorbell sound.

Then the VO for Pamela Rose has to let us know that "Pamela Rose presents an auction".

The Elissa Slotkin ads on the radio. When one comes on, I just turn it off for a minute or two.
