I agree, very annoying commercials:

Geico's Caveman
Dr.Scholl's Gellin'
Ford's Live on the Edge

But, I've gotten to where I scream when I hear "Mr. Barky Von Schnouzer?....Mr. Barky Von Schnouzer" and I usually can't get the channer changed before I hear him say it twice!

Geico's caveman is annoying...and as someone else looks suspiciously like Planet of the Apes Dude!!! But I do love the little Geico Gecko

Also like the commercial (it's a banking one) with the pest control service that goes into a house to capture the pests (bankers).

I don't know what it is, because the commercial never says, so I can't answer your question. What I do know is that they say to apply directly to the forehead.

I never did get the Geico caveman commercials. They've definitely run their course. The gecko, however, is still cool.

Any Capital One commercial annoys the heck out of me. I'll never use its products!

How could I have forgotten the Dr. Scholl's "Gellin?" That's go to be the lamest!
I've never seen "Head On," must not be marketed here.
That Burger King guy is VERY creepy.

If I had to guess, that's what I would have guessed. The problem with the ad is that it never tells you what it's for, not to mention that the ad is annoying, to boot!

Well, I saw one tonight that made me crack up. I know this thread is about those that drive us crazy, but I just thought I'd flip the coin over for a change.

The commercial was for Windex. It showed a couple of birds sitting on a tree limb outside a house. The woman of the house had just cleaned the sliding glass door and the man of the house walked right into it. The birds went wild with laughter. It was kind of funny to see this sort of thing from their perspective. I just thought I'd pass that along.
