Whas with tv provider commercials these days? They are the worst. Directv's "Great day for a move" is the worst of the 3 providers, i hate the part where the guy does that dance behind his so called friends back. Next is the irratating guy on the Cox cable commercials. And last is the 3 guys in the hopper comercials. Please no more torture.

We try to limit commercials to during morning news and sports, but I've seen much worse than those, including some that still blast the sound illegally.

Yeah, who's their set designer? The inside of the tree house look more like inside of an attic.

I hate it when a company make their own customers look like idiots. Dish is far ahead in this category.

One of the few things I like about going to the in-laws (I have quite a few) is watching commercials.  And the arguments.

Erf.

 

I thought the annoying father on the Cox commercials was just in Omaha.  Man, inflicting that advertising dreck everywhere Cox is the provider is just gruesome.

 

 

Blech.
