For life? Wendy’s black and white commercial that was parodying Beatlemania with the man with the red pigtails dramatically screeching, “Bacon!” And had men’s faces superimposed on women’s bodies turned me off the Bacanator for life without ever eating it! I hated that commercial so much it made me hate the Bacanator for life! So what commercials did you hate so much it made you hate the product for life?

I rarely eat at Wendy's anyway, because they just aren't that good anymore, but no commercial, no matter how bad, could ever turn me off of a hamburger if I liked it, commercial notwithstanding.

Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!

Wendy is on my sh!t list because the last two times I stopped in, the orders took forever, and were incorrect when I sat down.  (Not that the restaurants were busy...  Just incompetent staff.)
 
At the first instance, it was just before lunch; maybe 11:45.
No ketchup in the dispenser, no napkins.  Fancy soda machine had no ice.
 
The second instance was just piss-poor service.
 
I am now actively avoiding stopping at any Wendy's anywhere anytime.
These things usually run their course in about three years.
So, it'll most likely be sometime in 2020 before I give them another chance.

You know those "undisclosed security breach" notices you get from your credit card company saying you'll be receiving a new one in the snail mail sooooooon?  I highly suspect that the security breach hackathon (or perhaps an employee made a copy of the card number surreptitiously and got busted) was caused by Wendy's.  I had the time frame they gave me and all the other charges were for places I use on a monthly basis, i.e., grocery store, internet provider, charities, etc.  I just happened to go to a Wendy's in that time frame.  I don't feel safe handing over my credit card to them anymore.  There's always Jack In The Box, Carl's Jr., and plenty of other fast food places to go to when I just have to eat at one.

Closest thing for me would be Apple products. Some of their advertising sucks. Who coul forget Living The Life of Dreams commercial. However, its a tossup between the company's hipster snob cultishness, and quirky overpriced products.

Their 'Toasty Torpedo' commercials stopped me from ever eating in Quiznos again - but they were funny.

Weren't they called sponge monkeys? I found them quite hilarious! But I can see reasons for people not liking them. If anything that I found that turned me off to a product it's gotta be GEICO and the boy band from JG Wentworth!

The cost of those long commercials is probably one of the main reasons why they have to charge so damned much for the crap.

This was when Charlie Gibson was the anchor at ABC.  I'd rather hear from him than that drama whore Diane Sawyer.

How could I forget 1-800-Kars For Kids? Though its a charity. Of course Gay I mean Wayfair, Old Navy and though more a service or scam, anything to do with Nick Vertucci and his house flipping. Would like to flip him the bird.

I ignore ALL the My pillow ads, and buy them anyway.

However, I have hated the Carl's Junior ads starting back in the late 1980s. Haven't spent a penny there since. Jerks! I read that the duffus responsible has finally retired/resigned. Maybe I'll try them again. Or maybe not.

I am turned off the Lifelock commercials for life for the fact that Lifelock Founder ironically got his identify stolen. No thanks! I KNEW he was a dumbass when he paraded his social security number on national TV commercial! I thought that was one of the dumbest things ever! It reminds me of Identity Theft movie where the dumbass protagonist stupidly gives his personal information to an anonymous voice on a phone who is claiming to be selling him personal identity protection and ironically steals his identify, except that Identity Theft movie was a Comedy meant for laughs and the Lifelock Founder got his identity stolen in real life.

I don't think any commercial has ever turned me on/off to a brand, no matter how good or bad the commercial was. 
 
I don't look much at brands, anyway.  I look at the item, the price and whether or not it's on sale.

I'm pretty much the same way. Everyone here should know brand name means money spent on advertising that the consumer ends up paying. I have been disappointed by 'off' brands a few times and always purchase the minimum amount for testing the quality.

I work for Walgreen's and our store brand Studio35 lotion is just as smooth as the brand name Jergens lotion. And about $2 less!

I don't think I'd ever buy any "off-brand" car.  Fords, Chryslers, Toyotas, Chevys---all OK.  Renaults---probably never.
 
Otherwise, brand names mean little to me.  All they mean is more $.
 
Oh, Walmart's brand of Froot Loops sucks.  They get soggy within seconds.  Malt-o-Meal's version, however, is as good as the real thing.

I've also heard that Malt-o-Meal is good. But the thing about buying the sucky Great Value Froot Loops Walmart brand is that Froot Loops, the normal brand version is bound to be cheaper than buying Froot Loops at most places anyways since Walmart has cheaper prices than most places on normal brand versions of products! So go ahead, buy the normal brand version of Froot Loops. It's going to be better than Great Value Walmart brand.

Volvo - stupid cryptic sap. Subaru - same with the sap. Are they trying to win an Oscar or something? Wayfair and Hollar's commercials are so obnoxious I won't touch them with a 10 foot pole.

The Sap? Especially with Subaru they are fishing for the crunchy granola hippie/hipster/save the retarded 6 legged froggy folks. The one's where the women let their pit hair flow and grow. They can do macramé with it. The crowd that gets all up in arms if you show them a You Tube Video of the Yo Quiero Taco Bell Chihuahua doggy. That same crowd that has wet dreams over Prairie Home Companion episodes and would give their grocery money to NPR/PBS even if they had to forgo body soap, shampoo and laundry detergent.
 
Speaking of Volvo? They should use this song for their current commercials. But, the yuppies with the sweaters tied around their chest would wet their Old Navy threads and the Crunchy Granola set would do a love in/protest.

I don't blame you. Carl's Jr ads do their best to make me lose my appetite. "If it doesn't get all over the place, it doesn't belong in your face!" Ugh thank you for making my stomach churn!
