The fact that the guy looks like Michael J Fox circa Spin City era at the end of the 5 hour energy drink commercial annoys me. :S It seems that they are trying to appeal to MJF fans in order to sell their product, even though MJF is considered  a has-been. :S
 
The 5-hour energy woman who says, "I can barely keep my eyes open," while she is staring with wide open eyes. She should have been having half-closed, droopy eyes instead to show how tired she was. :S

Haha the 5-hour energy commercial is hilarious. The women who says "I'm in control" just looks like she's trying to convince herself of that.

Being shouted at, bad singing, irritating people irritating me.
Is this love big enough to watch over me?
Big enough to let go of me

Close ups of people's mouths, the whistling in the Febreeze commercials, the fact that car dealers need to feature their whole family standing with them while shouting at me to buy a car....

Everyone has a beautiful modern house with the latest in furnishings and appliances.
 
Guys my age and women in their 20s, all have some classic car or vintage convertible.
 
Women in clothing commercials all walk as if they're stepping over huge piles of dog sh*t.

Kids that act as though they're better than their parents (Glad commercial, anyone?)
People looking as though they're in the middle of sex whilst they're eating.

The trend of having average looking guys (often a little overweight and perhaps older and casually dressed) as the husband/father of the commercial family whereas the wife/mother is very attractive (very slim and fighting her age by looking spotless and dressed up casual). Stupid double standard. Has been my pet peeve for years.
 
The only commercial I see kind of (I only say kind of because I'm not sure they even realize they're doing it) make fun of it is a commercial for the Sears Optical Center, where a beautiful woman is with her balding, average looking guy (not too bad looking, but in commercial land, he's apparently an ogre), and he says, "How did I get a fox like you?" The woman smiles and replies, "I'm the lucky one," and kisses him. Then Sears comes in and says, 'Missing something?' Yeah, glasses would show her that he's so ugly so she could dump his ass. Not liking you, Sears.
 
...Anyway, end rant. That's what annoys me.

Also, related to the above...why are women cleaning their houses always wearing some type of business casual outfit?  Like a button down 3/4 sleeve shirt and cami underneath with semi pleated dress pants....I never wear that stuff to clean!  Maybe jeans sometimes, but most of the time it's yoga pants and a tank top or something!

Guys smiling after a good shave.  I've never done that.  I shave in the shower, run my fingers along my face and neck to make sure I didn't miss any areas, and I'm done with it.  I have absolutely no emotional reaction, let alone any that would make me smile.

Parents who seem not to mind that their kids just spilled something or made some kinda mess in the kitchen.  They look at the kids as if they just did the cutest thing, and proceed to happily clean it up with their favorite paper towel.

-Men with lead roles in ads who have a lazy eye, wall eyes, or cross eyes (recent McDonalds, USPS, and TurboTax ads come to mind). 
-Kids with enormous Dumbo ears in ads.
-Eating/smacking/slurping/crunching noises in ads (i.e. Kit Kat Bar).
-Any ads that feature unnecessary and uncalled-for man-hating (Homegoods).
-The XFINITY song in every other ad on cable TV (It's fun for you, it's fun for me, it's fun when everybody does XFINITY!") AngryAngryAngry

I'll post more if I think of them--this is just off the top of my head.
Welcome to Commercial Land. This is a magical place where all women look up while eating, and it is perfectly acceptable to slurp the hell out of a Dannon yogurt cup.

Always dressed in a white towel. Always with the GF/wife swooning over his nicely shaved face.

I like that. That's so much nicer than shouting at the poor cubs.

I hate all of these SMUG people in ads. Like that smug Iphone guy who's like ,I have an iPhone and yoooooooooou don't. You just have a regular phone. You can't press a button and have all of your favourite books and see your favourite shows beam directly into your head and order pizza ALL AT THE SAME TIME because YOU SUCK and you have no money for an 800 dollar phone you poor thing.
No more of those I'm this and he's that ads. No more annoying songs in commercials with people who cannot sing and crunching noises.

Unless the floor is carpeted.  That's another thing, every commercial home has hard wood floors except the Toby scooting dog ad. WOW! Showing me that spiffy vacuum running across a hard wood floor is impressive.

Women cooing over fragrances or candy.  Or women going into orgasms eating yogurt.

Car dealers plugging their "best in class" MPG pickup truck that out-does every other truck- yet never includes the price.

It is NOT! I barely like going to the bathroom and knowing MY bathroom stuff, let alone other people's. Commercials do NOT need to get more graphic about that. We know what toilet paper is for!

Oh, another thing that irritates me to know end is when companies tell you how you should feel. Case and point Comcast. In one of their commercials that's on all of the time, a lady near the end says "that's a phenomenal thing to offer to our customers," referring to giving people money back (as credit) for being late. 

Excuse me? I'll decide when something you offer is "phenomenal." Considering they made me reschedule my setup appointment twice (having to miss work and waiting hrs on end in the process) you bet they credited me.

Anytime somebody has to spout off about "in this economy" or "these days". If the economy is so bad maybe I won't buy your products at all. Nope the way you guys tell it we're gonna be looking at breadlines, class warfare, and images of bindlesh*ts and stewbums allover the place. Sorry but money is tight and sacrifices must be made. The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few.

The Perfect Mommies (tm) making themselves popular by feeding kids the worst junk imaginable.
 
"Tell a Friend" schemes. Thanks to Facebook, companies *need* to get in on the social networking action (which IMO is a crock, but I'm a non-FB person so what do I know.) Today I saw an ad for some kind of bathroom wet wipes imploring women to "tell a friend" about "freshness" Confused Who the f%# is going to FB Favorite a bunch of feminine wipes AND tell their friends about it?!

Also, the 5 hour energy guy scratches his butt if you look really closely. :S. Nasty! The only time I found butt scratching funny is in a Zack and Cody episode where Zack brags about having dignity, and then scratches his butt. LOL. Other than that episode, butt scratching on TV is annoying and not funny.
