1. Progressive Insurance.
2. Haribo.

These ads cause tune outs.

Not the only one who is annoyed. That Jamie could be singlehandedly responsible for Cumulus Talk stations' low ratings. Makes me change station or mute until over.

On AntennaTV, I just saw a most awful spot for a most horrifying product.
"TRUMPY BEAR"
A somewhat bear-looking toy that lets one show "patriotism" because when you unzip it out comes an American flag blanket. Just guessing it's manufactured in China, since it never says "Proudly Made in the USA"
OMFG
:barf

The 3 idiots who have to ask, 'What Are The 3 P's?' then 'What's My Price?'

I initially gave Alex Trebek a pass for participating as the spokesperson for this. No more.

A brand new add to local spot rotation, to annoy the hell out of you: 877-50-FLOOR

"Call 8-7-7 Fifty FLOOR
and we'll come knockin'
at your door"

This jingle sounds like it could be from the same house of musical art that birthed "My Pillow dot com"
Flooring outfits, all with bad sing-jingles: Empire "Today", ReFloor and now 50-Floor

There's one for Pull-Ups that has an annoying song referencing baby bottles and sippy cups, which, of course ends up rhyming with the product in question. I hope it outgrows the airwaves soon.

I actually like the Limu Emu and Doug ads, but I can see how they annoy people.

I wonder if Limu Emu & Doug ("Liberty Mutual") watched the late Australian Rod Hull & (puppet) Emu on The Hudson Brothers (Bill, Brett & Mark) Razzle Dazzle Show on CBS Saturday mornings from September 1974 till September 1975?? That show which was on DVD (The Complete Series) is out of print.

Yeah, I remember Rod Hull and Emu, and the Hudson Brothers Show. Good comparison.

Bill Hudson married Goldie Hawn. Mark Hudson is a songwriter and record producer. Brett Hudson went into tv production. Interesting that there's been no musical reunion of the three to speak of, not that their career reached any level of longevity. They recorded for over a decade, but were popular for only a year or two. As musicians, they were certainly not as well known as even Hull himself in his field.
