Worst Commercials of 2011

  • Jun 4, 2011
1
Groupon,


This most definitely takes the cake. Nothing like a PR gaff committed by a billion dollar company. Hopefully the Tibetans haven't "un-liked" the United States on Facebook.
2
Sony Ericsson,
Hmm, trying to be clever, eh? Well I'm going to buy one anyway despite how hard you're trying to gross me out! Me > Sony Ericsson.
3
Chevy Cruze,

You mean he didn't turn around racing back to her place after checking his Facebook status? MISSED OPPORTUNITY.
4
Hot Pocket,
These are the most delicious-looking set of triplet brothers I've ever laid eyes on...(that's what she said!).
5
Cars.com,

Talking cars? Check. Vehicle profiling? Check. This ad does nothing but further the stereotypes and discrimination that cars have been trying to fight against for decades, ever since the famous VW Beetle tire-slashing incident of 1967.
6
Bridgestone,
Okay, I was totally excited for a second because I thought the 'Dramatic Gopher' was finally making it's commercial debut, but it just turned out to be another poser. Pretending to have jedi powers isn't cool!
7
Pepsi MAX,

I see through your fancy magic and misdirection! Nobody orders soda at a fancy restaurant...in a can! Ya'll needs to be more meticulous with your research on the fine dining experience, =P
8
Go Daddy,
Ugh, hot women have it tough; they have to deal with hair and make-up people making 'em purrty, back and neck pain from the weight of their augmented breasts (which they've wanted since their teenie-bopper days), and tv executives waving a wad of cash in front of them to go nude. Hmm...who's really at fault here? =P
9
Chevy Cruze,

Ugh, how rude that that girl just interrupted their riveting debate! As if I wanted to hear any details about a car in an old persons commercial.
10
Kia Optima,

Whoever said wasting loads of money on a car commercial whilst simultaneously undermining quasi-indigenous/primitive peoples' culture and providing absolutely no helpful information about what they're actually selling has gone out of fad?

What did you think of this list?

Great list! I'd add this AT&T one, so obnoxious: 
June 30, 2011
Hah, that is annoying!

Right? It's like look at how obnoxious I can be with my iPhone at a diner and let's just make the obviously busy waitress wait until I figure out the age old question of when Whoomp There It Is was created because we can't go on as a species until that's figured out. Ummm....yeah...it annoys me a bit LOL...

Still shakin' my head at that Groupon one. What were they thinking?! Great list :)
 
June 13, 2011
You're right, that groupon commercial has to be worst. It's so bad I don't even know what to say. Awesome list though! I'd have all these in my list as well as every T-Mobile/insurance company commercial =P

Thanks! I actually didn't arrange it in any particular order, but the Groupon one most certainly takes the cake.
