Seriously?!  SERIOUSLY?!?!  How many executives did this chick bone to get this gig?  I've heard better singing at improv shows!  Justin Bieber doesn't even manage to annoy me as much as this tone-deaf rhythmless canvas bag of a singer!!!!

Love Stevia, Hate Truvia (Has other crap in it so they can sell it as a sweetner, basically), and loathe these commercials.

 
Stevia is good stuff, though. Just don't buy the Truvia sh*t.

I hate that Truvia acts like they -invented- Stevia. I don't need a fancy brand that charges me triple the regular price of the box I can buy next to my vitamins. I also hate that Truvia ONLY EVER talks about how people should eat it so they don't get fat. Yes, because you can't eat something healthy for ANY OTHER G'damn reason.
This whiny cow and this brand's pretentious packaging can take a hike.
Please, stop saying "Awesome" in commercials! Your actors are not awe-inspiring and neither is your product.

Wow, the site's search function is outright broken.  I did a search for Truvia and got NOTHING.

At least the name is appropriate.

Seriously though, it's hipsters isn't it.  The same people who buy Apple laptops to write screenplays in a Starbucks while sipping on a venti grande mocha frappacino latte iced coffee at 173 degrees with 2 creams and no espresso.  And the only damn reason they listen to that sh*t is they want to listen to something the person they're talking to doesn't, and let's face it, if you're trying to pick something nobody is going to listen to, what better than that warbling bitch.

There's awful singing in the Citi credit card ad, too. It produces as much vertigo as watching the hiker climb to the top of a very tall rock.

It sounds almost like Zooey Dechanel. She can't act and she sure can't sing either. This doesn't even count as singing!

This ad makes me regret not going into singing. If this whiny, tinny, "tee hee I make up lyrics on the fly" whore can make a commercial, I could, too.
Oh,and @Malcom? Marry me. Smile

This is the worst piece of (something) I have ever suffered. As a singer, I find this spew-worthy. Dead

I could tolerate tone deaf, run-on, pointless music if it's a five year old singing to me. But this . . . no, just no.

And the line between ironically horrible and just plain horrible music is blurred even more. There is no excuse for this ear-murder.

This is pretty bad, but I think the "Skippin Stones" jingle for Nature Valley is the worst one out there at the moment for bad singing that is supposed to be good.  The "Good Mood Food" jingle is the worst in memory, but at least the singer isn't taking himself seriously.

^Truvia HAS Stevia in it, but it also has some other ingredients and other sweeteners in it, some of which are considered dubious.

I know just the one you mean. The lead-up music isn't as bad, and then a woman squalls "SOMEBODY LEFT THE GATE O-OOOOPEN!!!! at the top of her lungs, curling all toes and nerve endings within earshot. Right as the climber achieves the top of the rock pinnacle.
