A few months back, we asked readers to vote on the ad spokesperson who most needed to be retired from the air. This has since brought up the discussion here at the Consumerist Cave of what is the most annoying, aggravating, irritating, overplayed commercial on TV right now. And that’s where we want your help.
Given the sheer number of commercials airing at any moment, we need you to assist us in narrowing down the list from hundreds to a more manageable figure.
There are a couple of qualifications for nominees:
1. The ad must be for a national brand. As funny as it is to watch craptastic local ads, we’re looking for commercials that annoy TV watchers nationwide.
2. The ad must have aired in 2010. Preference will be given to nominees that are still on the air, but if there’s a commercial that has only recently gone out of rotation that merits a demerit, we’ll consider it.
That’s it, really. Feel free to discuss the topic in the comments, but only those nominees mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject “bad ad nominee” will be considered.
