1) Stormtracker 4 Jennifer Broome, where she's nearly in tears about doing her job. "YOUR SAFETY IS MY NUMBER ONE CONERN"
I didn't know my hands were in the weather lady's hands. She deserves an Oscar for that one. Also the one with the $49 weather radio she tries to shove down our throats is a close second
2) The Time Warner football commercial with the ANNOYING coach.
It skips/stutters like crazy and makes me dizzy/nauseous.
3) The PIMP that sells Eye Glasses, Tattoos, and piercings, and has a beauty shop.
Too entrepreneurial for me.
What are your most hated commercials

It's not local but I absolutely hate the new Dell commercial. I have to change the channel when it comes on.
It is in a factory and they are stamping out different colored laptops the song playing is "lollipop".

Lollipop, lollipop, oh lolly,lolly,lolly, lolliPOP

To keep it local, I also don't like the Fiesta Dodge commericals. "Just outside loop 410" doing the :swirling finger: thing.

Since everyone *thinks* Whataburger is a strictly Texas Thang (I KNOW, they're based in TX, but we had it in Phx when I was growing up, and that was like in the STONE AGE!! LOL!!) ~

I can not STAND that guy's voice!!! On ANY of their commercials! Ugh.

Anything with April Ancira.

Full ride to Trinity followed by an immediate promotion to VP of Chrysler Jeep Dodge at the age of 24?

Please, my kid would be scrubbing the floors of the showroom for a few years longer.

In the most recent commercial, she is wearing a homely sweater and long skirt. Her breasts look like they sit near her elbows.

My son LOVES this commercial and makes us rewind it so that he can watch it again.

WHAAAA?!?! Mike Yuchnitz? The dude is DA BOMB! But I was thinking more along the line of Chuck Mangione...



I see his Corvette parked in front of his Marbach/410 store all the time, his license plate reads 'YM.' He was also mentioned in page five of the Your Opinion of local TV shows/news thread a while back, post #48.

By the way, do you think it is the same 'Mike Yuchnitz' that's in this list of Seniors from Yamato High School, Year 1970 (http://www.yamatohs.com/yhs70.html - broken link)?



I know he is retired USAF, I wonder if he was a USAF brat as well?

i absolutely HATE the mothers window tint commercials. the guy sounds like a used car salesman, and the commercials are filmed in about the same quality as a small time used car dealership. (girls and everything)

AND SPLASHTOWN "a new wave of fun at splashtown" just hearing it makes me aprehensive, its so catchy and annoying. i avoid splashtown because of that commercial. and i don't know the first part of the jingle so IT IRRITATES ME EVEN MORE!

nationally the prius commercial just angers me, not because its a prius, i love those cars. but the people and the song are both psychadelic...bap ba, de, da, de, da, and the people swaying side to side...anyone see that fresh prince episode with will smith in sunflower spandex? thats what the commercial reminds me of.

Last edited by Orincarnia; 09-02-2009 at 08:52 AM.. Reason: added another commercial

I'm not sure if they're on TV or not, but on radio, Billy Bobs Beds.
