There's a lot of commercials out there that have people who need to go away right now. The annoying guy selling all the household cleaning supplies, for example.

When I am Queen of the World, I fully intend to have a series of remote islands where I will banish people who annoy me. Who should be on the island for annoying people from commercials?

Dude. The King.

Maybe you will need two islands. I wouldn't send my worst enemy to live forever on an island with the King for company.

The Black-Eyed Peas. Please. They are everywhere. Whoever is managing them has overplaced the heck out of them, and it's seriously backfiring, as far as I'm concerned.

Any woman with a "textured" voice.

The worst part of that commercial is that it repeats itself three times in succession. Like, I got it. You are stressing me out just to make me buy your stupid product.

I thought they were only doing that where I live. Are they trying to get people to buy it by pissing them off? Like I'm gonna go, "Okay, I got it! I'm stressed! I'll buy it if you just shut the hell up already!"

I don't know if it's only a local (San Diego) ad, but there's a commercial for Maric College starring the worst actress imaginable, complaining about her jobs until her mom suggests MC. She rushes out her lines with no pauses and no inflections. It's painful, like she never acted ever before, even in a school play.

That sounds like suspiciously like an ad that's airing here in Philadelphia. Maybe they just changed the name of the institution. Does the girl come in bitching about "the boutique" and her waitressing job? IIRC, she flops down on the couch and (maybe) starts taking her shoes off?

There's this red-haired woman whose name I don't know, but lately she's been in every other commercial I see. She started out in those K-Y warming lotion commercials, but then I started seeing her in an infomercial for KB Homes, and then a commercial for blinds, and on and on. I mean, I guess it's good for the actress to be so successful all of the sudden, but it's annoying to see her everywhere. She's overexposed, and I don't even know her name.

WORD to that. It's bad enough she ruined "These Boots Are Made for Walkin,' " but to make a commercial version of the butchered song is all kinds of wrong.

Not even Miss Piggy parodying the song makes up for this. (Yes, a parody of a rewrite of a cover. Somebody make it stop!)

The TV ad person who's currently pissing me off is the guy from the Bellsouth ads. I see him roughly a BILLION FREAKING TIMES A DAY, and if I ever see him in person, I plan to bitchslap that smirk right off of his smarmy face.

Amen! She cannot go away fast enough.

I also have to include Patricia Heaton and those damn Albertson's spots. Now they're doing radio, too. I can't get away from them!

I am really tired of seeing the Raisin Bran Crunch commercials. The first two or so were a bit funny, but they have ran these series of ads into the ground. Johnson, his boss, and the rest of that office gang can all just bite me.

I just hate the crunching sound in those. Alright, I have to hear that kind of thing when I eat crunchy stuff, that doesn't mean I want to hear it magnified, in my face, on the TV screen. I'll never 'get' ads thinking gross eating/drinking noises whet someone's appetite.

Local ads can have really annoying pitchmen/women sometimes. In my region, there's this grating "My Bob's" guy, a little guy with an oval, somewhat balding head and scraggly beard who has the worst nails-on-the-chalkboard voice ever, which he emphasizes as he talks. As if that wasn't enough (and, by gosh, don't you think it ought to be?), they occasionally do faux-clever/funny animated furnature bits and things of that ilk that only adds to the weird/annoying vibe.

Lately, a woman shares the ads with Bob. Sometimes she talks like he does, sometimes she's okay. Sometimes ads with just her on them are a relief. But, really, he needs to go. Away.

You guys know the incredibly annoying, "Scottish" guy in those Alexander Keith's ads? Well, the actor got arrested for having child porn. Is it wrong that when I heard the news, my first thought was relief that I wouldn't have to see those ads anymore?

The desparate housewives' fifteen minutes are about up, yeah?

I like Marcia Cross, really I do, but that damn 7-Up commercial grates on my last nerve.

Besides the fact that it's stupid, that particular brand of 7-Up tastes like cold buttered ass. Splenda can go away any time now.

Ugh. And after I typed this, I saw a new commercial. Eva Longoria has ruined my favorite beverage. Ruined, I say!

No it's not wrong clear, he's hated in our house too. My roommate was so pumped when he heard. Wow...that does sound horrible!

Word. Asslee Simpson, too, although she's not used as much as her sister, thank the good Lord.

I'm adding Silly "Trix" Rabbit and his annoying little people friends. "Trix are for kids!" My butt. Seriously, why can't those kids friggin' SHARE and if that rabbit would just keep running and not stop to tell us that he got the Trix cereal, when we can CLEARLY see it, he would totally get away with it. But no. I hate that guy.

How has no one mentioned Kirstie Alley and her damned Jenny Craig commercials? They're annoying, and I fucking can't stand her. Plus her voice. Her horrible, grating voice. (They're not as bad as her Pier One commercials, but still.)

And I hate the celebrity Neutrogena ads, even when they're celebrities I like. I just find them irritating for some reason. And they usually feature people I can't stand (Halle Berry, Mischa Barton), which doesn't help.

I hate the commercials for the private colleges. Bryman College, Sprott-Shaw, blah blah blah. They have the most annoying female actresses who cannot act to save their lives and the plotline is always the same.

And that "doctor" in the commercial for Spectro-Gel or whatever the fuck it's called. Learn how to read a cuecard without being completely obvious, you moron.

I really hate the ultra-helpful smiling call-center people who gush to the camera about how happy they are to help. I've worked in call-centers most of my adult life. Usually we're throwing things, pounding on the desks, and hissing to the people next to us "You won't believe how batshit crazy THAT one was!" I just really like realism in my commercials, darn it.
