Default tv commercials

Let's try a new survey about something totally unrelated to quilting, but which we are all familiar with.
What tv commercial currently airing do you like and which one affects you like nails on a chalkboard?

LIKE--Chewy.com pet supplies with the two dogs talking about a peanut butter delivery

DISLIKE--The Insurance Helpline with JJ Walker

I hate them all and actively avoid them. I think our society is bombarded with waaaaay too many commercials. If one comes on the radio, I change the station. About 10 years ago, we dumped satellite tv and signed up with a couple different streaming providers. Best ever side effect of that was that we no longer get commercials!

Not helpful to your thread, am I? 😜😆 Sorry! 😆

I only watch commercial TV early AM for local news. National news? Avoid like the plague so rarely see the annoying commercials and I think ALL of them are annoying.

We have primary election June 7 so lots of untruths regarding commercials.

I'm streaming shows on Amazon Prime. Commercials there are usually business focus and last for 10-15 seconds. Much better for my blood pressure...lol

The one I dislike is the one where the mom is waiting for her son to come home and the police show up at the door. It's airing on the radio also. I think it's to remind to wear seatbelts. Can't stand it.

We watch very little regular TV. We stream Amazon, Netflix, Acorn, and BritBox. There are no ads on these channels. But, we watch the local and national news occasionally. I absolutely hate the lawyer ads that appear at that time. We are a lawsuit friendly state and the lawyers are on TV all the time. I like the Geico commercials.

That’s what the mute button is for on the remote control.

I used to love the Budweiser ads with the big horses. Have there been any new ones lately?
