How can you get offended by Dikembe Mutumbo blocking a shot. He use to do the same exact stuff while he was playing in the NBA. He was one of the better characters of the NBA during the 90s/early 2000

This is the most annoying commercial ever

I don't get how the Mutumbo ad is annoying, i really like it and thought it was one of the better geico commercials. Do you even know who Dikembe Mutombo is and what he did in the NBA?

As a Coloradoan, I remember how Dikembe Mutombo brought life to the Denver Nuggets, and I remember how electrifying he was. There was no better shot-blocker than he was... I think the Geico Commercial with him is great.

One of the most annoying for me is the Cuties commercial. The narrator sounds like an adult trying to talk like a little kid saying how much kids love Cuties (tangerines....). It might be a kid, but it sure doesn't sound like it.

The most annoying commercial I have seen in recent years is the Microsoft "Surface Pro" one shown on TV.

Yes, I know this thread is old, but the commercial is new

I detest the Geico pig commercials.

I used to detest the chrysler ads where they made all men out to be meatheads with only one thing on their minds: "does that thing have a hemi." Hated those ads, and lots of other chrysler/dodge ads.

Hate any ads that are loud and obnoxious.

I watch lots of TV late at night and they'll show commercials that take up a whole half-hour for some product and keep repeating the same stuff over and over and over, finally the commercial ends and then a new one will start and that one will last a half-hour...man I hate sitting through them and it seems that the show never really starts at all. At least my butt will be firm when that Butt-Master 6000 arrives.
