OK, folks... here we are again. Another year is coming to a close. Another year of stupid commercials. Really stupid commercials. Really, REALLY... stupid commercials. So, I'd like to start an official thread of the worst commercials of 2018. Here's where we all bring together our own personal hate lists of the year, and I'll kick it off with my own. Ready? Hardhats on? All right... here we go! The worst commercials of 2018...................................

All of them. Dead

The end. ♫ Ta-da. ♫ LOL

Next person?

I can't do a 'top 10 list' this year. There's too many horrible, awful commercials to report. So here we go....Crainbebo's Worst Ads of the Year!

I really think the worst ads of the year were Liberty Mutual ads. Especially when they added the annoying jingle 'liberty liberty liberty liberty' at the end!!! UGH!! They are silly nowadays, with the bimbo throwing his cell phone into the 'harbor' and the lady who 'turns into' a news reporter. Who are making these ads? 6th graders?

Pull-Ups "Rap" - I just heard this awful and silly rap yesterday. Why do diapers have to be rappified?

State Farm - 'Somebody burned down mah sheshed!' It's still a storage shed, you idiot!

Cheerios 'Good Goes Around' - The stupid rapping and then...and then...children rapping it! Just a WTF moment!

KFC - Any ad except for George Hamilton ads. I can tolerate those. But the CHRISTMAS CAROL ad a few weeks ago...OMG! I was close to throwing a rock at that television! And Jason Alexander, Reba, etc. ads. Awful restaurant, awful ad agency, awful adtards running marketing. Seriously, stop it!

Progressive 
'Box Vlog' - WHY was that box still on the air? And I'm sure he'll be back for something in 2019. Hasn't anyone thought about crushing that thing to his death already?
'The Safey Awards' - Alfonso Ribero should stick to AFV, and not stupid commercials.
'Game Show Gary' - 'Studs' host Mark DeCarlo acting as a game show host in a horrible commercial where the leader has several million dollars in cash, and Flo and Jamie are cheering from the audience. I can't. I just can't.
And the ones where Flo and Jamie protect a house. I mute them every time.
Seresto Seresto Seresto....

Geico - Most of their ads, but these are the ones I hated the most:
"McGruff the Crime Dog" - Basically calling him a baby. Sh!ting on one of the most influential public service campaigns in American TV history. I'm disgusted with them over this.
"Massage Chairs" - Seriously, WHY?!!
'Sand in a House' - see above.
'Nature Sounds' - and see above.
'Grandpa's Nose Solo' - Disgusting ad where a snoring grandpa plays music with his nostrils. What in the flying blue f--k does this have to do with CAR INSURANCE?!!!
'Dave Coulier Pops Out of a Couch' - Ugh!!

Allstate ruining my Saturdays with BZZT! BZZT! - the lost phone ad with Mayhem. I can tolerate him but NOT that one!

Chevy and Potsch Boyd telling us about JD Power, and as if the commercial ended...nope! It's back! I want him to go away. His shelf life has expired.

Charmin - 'cuz, my hiney's CLEAN!!' Mr. Whipple is spinning in his grave.

Walmart - Most of them botching music from their $4.99 bin, but the 'you can ring my BELLLLL!!' was the worst one.

Wow, what a banner year. And I doubt 2019 will be much better.

Well, my picks for the worst ('The Dickpunch Awards', as Shadow used to set up the yearly worst), actually fall into two categories there, 3J. The first are the ones that are insta-mute, the others are ones that are SO bad that one becomes numb to them.

I'll start with the most despicable and think about posting the 'Numb' ones in later (if I absolutely have nothing else to do):

  • Infinity - 'The Rules of Luxury'
  • Chantix, starring Botox Liotta
  • Nature Made Vitamins - Princess Toast
  • Her She Shed
  • Cheerios - 'The Good Goes Around and Around'
  • UNSOLVED: The Murders: Tupac&Notorious B.I.G

  • Progressive Box - VLOG

  • Whole Foods - "I'd like to go to Cheese School"
  • Almost any of the '23 And Me' or 'Ancestry.Com' commercials that help you come to the ultimate realization that you married your cousin.
  • ANY of the 'Toyota Jan' ads.
  • Lipozene with Rodney & Holly Pete
  • Purple Mattress
  • Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross - ALL OF THEM
  • Cadillac 2019 XT4 - 'Joy'

It really has been an absolutely awful year of commercials and there are too many to name.

Of course the recent Christmas ads are still fresh in my head (Target, Amazon, the car ads, etc) - all of those sucked as usual.
The Political ads playing almost non-stop since Spring around here, but really kicked in full force after Labor Day

The ones that really stand out for me is.
Facebook Marketplace - "This is the town" song
Liberty Mutual of course - The news anchor ad is so damn corny!
ALL Chevy commercials with pu**y Potch

The revamped Arby's ad, now with Ving Rhames AND that "For sandwiches" d-bag.


THE most annoying ad for me, has to be that f'ing "Oh Oh Ozempic" ad.
So yet another medication pile of junk takes the #1 spot.

Liberty Mutual-Take your pick

Cheerio's-Good goes around. It would be good if a garrotte went around that dipsh*t singer's neck.

Charmin-The bear kid "singing" about his hiney.

Geico-Grandpa's musical nose

Progessive-anything with the talking box that somehow has yet to be set alight

...I know, I know - this really was from 2017, but I'm SURE I saw it again in 2018 and I couldn't dislike a commercial more...

If I see that Ruby Tuesday ad again, I may find a rock and throw it at my TV. 
Medications? Wasn't really a fan of Ozempic, not a fan of Trelegy botching 'ABC' by the Jackson 5, and Humira ads aired constantly throughout the year.

And I forgot this piece of fine art by Progressive...how could I forget one of the worst insurance ads ever?

In real life, security wouldn't do a damn thing, and it's aisle, not isle, and would definitely not assault a customer because of the criminal charges of assault and battery and the civil lawsuit sure to follow.

I agree with the lists by crainbebo and TNIP.

The Cheerios round and round rap crap was earlier in the year, but definitely should be on the lists!

It seems all of the usual suspects insurance cos. have scraped beyond the bottom of the barrel; there must have been a false bottom of the barrel and in 2018 they infiltrated it.

Potschbag and Tommy MiddlefingerDitch are tied in my opinion for worse spokesassholes of the year.

Thank God for Mahk to keep us laughing!

totally agree--Muddle Dick actually worse than Putzche due to the fact that he buys into his own 'clever' myth..he is so gratingly and cloyingly AWFUL
..also Cheerios has sort of 'Metered' the rap out of "good goes around'--its better for 2019--do they ever LOOK at this forum i wonder?

As my fellow posters said No shortage of sh×t commercial wise. Snoring gramps, Those pill adds fuc@ng up hits from the past, Progressive with a high shrill pitched Nancy Boy squealing like a Deliverance piggy, the Progressive ad that starts out like a 1950s cartoon add. Target outdid themselves for this past holiday season with their vocal fry breathy CEAHH croaking of Round and Round, That woo at the end is like an extra turd squirt. Lemon wreck Chrysler with those retards dancing to rap crap. Of course cheerios round goes around. And a special honerable mention of those misery quotient beg for money commercials. The ones for the poor Holocost survivors with that spokesman that sounds like Jackie Mason got castrated especially the one with the mournful "Ay ay yi yi" whaling. I'm Jewish but these still make me lunge for the remote. Even when my cat's hiney is on top of the remote. The rest of them ASPCA,St. Judes etc also get my stamp of wretched adds from 2018.

I'll take Cologuard's box over the Progressive BOX any day - just ship the latter to a landfill to be crushed already...and take Flo & Jamie with you.

I forgot about this atrocity that I still saw last night during the news and Wheel of Fortune:

At least Cologuard the Talking Box has an actual redeeming quality in that it can help people who want to do an at-home colon cancer screening because it can save lives.

As for the Pro Box, good idea crainbebo!  Thumbs Up  Flo is way past her sell-by date, and Jamie was moldy and spoiled rotten from Day 1.

The rapping kid is a definite for the 2018 Losers' List.  Wink

I still fantasize of the delivery person pressing the entrance buzzer to the lab and announcing "PoopyGram"! Mine is a 5X6 inch cardboard envelope dropped in the mail.

I will prematurely submit a candidate for 2019. I first saw it January first. No video yet. Planet fitness Hip-Hop dance-O-rama with a loud Steve Harvey wanna be spokes idiot. I can imagine the director shouting "Blacken it up"! I'm sure to get criticism but am just stating my life experience. I have early background information but will cut to the chase. I have had many black friends, work associates, and fellow soldiers. Most would be embarrassed by those of their race acting like the ones in this commercial.
