    What were some of the most irritating advertisements you came across on TV, radio, internet, newspapers, magazines etc

    I remember how margarine adverts called them good for the heart because they contained no cholesterol or saturated fats but they were loaded with trans fats that are indeed bad for the heart. Now good quality margarines don’t have any but in the past they contained 20-40% trans fats.

    More likely it is not cholesterol but trans fats that cause heart artery problems.

    What's irritating me just lately is car adverts where the backdrop is beautiful scenery. There's something sick about petrol units set against the environment that they're pissing on.

    ads for feminine hygiene products. Or viagra & clones.

    I've grown tired and irritated with the Sonic Drive-In commercials. I think they have beaten a dead horse with them. But, it's only the commercials with the two guys. I still like the ones with the husband and wife.

    I hate the ones with "cute" kids that are supposed to get the "awwwwwwwww" response. Like the cheerios one where the kid wakes up his parents at 6 in the morning with a bowl of cheerios so they can lower their cholestoral.

    Well, those freaking Crazy Frog commercials in the UK drove me nuts last year.

    In the US, I have to say during the Olympics I was going to hurl if I had to see another freaking Allstate commerical or "I'm going to stick it to the man / But you are the man" commercial.

    I don't watch any channels with adverts in the UK. They just drive me nuts so I don't watch them.
