Last week, we asked you to start nominating the baddest badvertisers around for Consumerist’s Third Annual Worst Ad In America Awards, and you quickly responded with hundreds of comments and e-mails. But even if you missed that post, there are still four days left to vent your hatred.
With the exception of a handful of arguably entertaining commercials — and even those tend to grate over time — TV commercials are the bane of a TV watcher’s time in front of the boob tube. This is why we invent technology to skip over ads, or mute buttons to quiet them, or sudoku games to play while they are on. It’s also why Consumerist is announcing its third-annual Worst Ad In America awards!
The nomination period for this year’s Worst Ad In America Awards was supposed to have ended last Friday, and even though you’ve nominated hundreds of bad ads, we’ve decided to extend the nomination period through the end of this week in order to flesh out some of the possible new categories.
