It's what makes a SubaRU a SubaRU.

The two local ones I can't stand are:

"I'm a TRUCK, TRUCK, TRUCK, TRUCK, man"

and

"I'm in the (insert whatever) business..."

and the one that stole the "867-5309" number and song for their cheesy commercial.

As far as national commercials, I actually feel my blood boil listening to the people crunching the Kit-Kat bars on the latest commercial for that candy bar. I don't want to hear ANYONE CHOMPING THEIR FOOD!!! Those are always the absolute worst to me.

Oh no you didn't just put down Tommy Tutone's 867-5309/Jenny!

Then you're probably not a fan of the Hardees ads where they actors take HUGE bites of their food, and chew them like they're trying to destroy the food, gobbling and slobbering.

Now the ad with Padma Lakshmi in a dress and heels licking her finger after running it up her long bare leg...yeah...that ad is fine by me...that woman knows how to work a burger

The Morris Jenkins commercials are annoyingly awesome! The same for Showmars!

No one "stole" that number, that have paid dearly to have rights to it.

Haven't heard the kit-kat one......that would drive me nuts.

^Yep, hate the Kit Kat commercial.

Jared, Kay, pretty much every other jeweler commercial (come on, we all know that you could never sell a diamond for what you paid for it.)

Lexus commercials. They're always bragging about something that has absolutely nothing to do with the actual car, like the champagne flute commercial and the sound of the engine, never mind that 1. The sound of an engine can't break a glass, and 2. Speakers don't transfer those frequencies anyway.

Actually, wrong on both accounts. It boils down to finding the resonant frequency of the specific glass being used, and being able to produce that frequency at a high enough amplitude (volume) to vibrate the glass until it breaks. In this example:

Glass Shattering Demo Explanation

the resonant frequency of the glass was 800 Hz, which is easily reproduced by any full range speaker. If a vehicle were tuned a certain way, it also could produce that 800 Hz frequency.
