The current "most hated" for me is that one with the woman singing Blondie while driving and doesn't realize she's still on speakerphone.
I think that chick is really hot, so I love that commercial.

Yeah, those are pretty good.

The worst commercial out there is definitely the Panera Soba noodles one.

For starters, those noodles look disgusting. The phonetic spelling of basic words like mushroom and spoon makes me want to hit something.

And then, heaven forbid we call it a soup. Oh no, it's a broth bowl.

I know this is pretty par for the course for Panera, but it has to be the most pretentious 30 seconds on TV.

i second this--messin with sasquatch would always get a belly laugh out of me.

I'm a big fan of when commercials have kids doing grown up things...like the suburu commercial (?) where the dad asks his son if he wants to drive his car and then it cuts to him daydreaming about how awful adult life is or the nationwide commercial where they have a bunch of kids doing grown up things--i lose it every time the kid throws his cell phone on the ground.

Worst commercials? So many, but the sarah mclaughlin ASPCA ads rank up there.

I'm listening to more Cardinals games on radio then ever before now that I have the app on my phone, and I got to say, the amount of effort put into a sports radio commercial is astounding.

I just don't understand how every product and service in St. Louis can be a homerun.

The new Dunkin' Donuts campaign for serving breakfast all day..."Breakfast Whenevs" makes me want to punch someone in the throat.

Agreed. Geico is guilty often of running its campaigns into the ground (looking at you, cavemen), but man if they aren't usually the best commercials when they're first introduced.
