    Which TV commercials make you want throw a brick at your tele?

    For starters....

    Any commercial with whiny little meerkats in it.

    McDonald's Dollar Menu commercial.

    Any commercial for women's cosmetics that contain fictitious chemicals that do amazing things.

    Coles Down Down commercials.

    Sportsbet, Ladbrokes, TAB, Bet365, etc. I'm a punter mysef but just f**k off with the "If your horse comes second or third, we'll refund your bet." And in a little voice "Up to $50."

    What's yours?

    Sportsbet where the merkin is shaving his nads. Seriously, WTF. Throw in the TAB ‘I will always love you’ sh*tfest to make these my 2 most hated.

    Adverts on fox league for Queenslanders only, they’re f**king awful.

    The current TAB one, with the two groups of supporters marching down the streets chanting.

    This one's funny when you first see it, but there are so many variants now, the humour is long lost.

    Compare the Market aren't meerkats, they are bloody leaches. If you wonder why your insurance costs so much, it's because of middlemen like these guys. They don't charge you directly but they charge massive commissions to the insurers, who then pass the cost onto you. Also, their ads suck.

    Yes. It's almost an attempt to incite violence.

    Since the last Big Bash season began a few months ago, it would have to be the Trivago and Finder ads. They must've paid a lot of money, as they have been on all commercial FTA and Fox channels ad nauseum.

    TAB ads in general are quite f**ked and highly annoying.

    The ones with the Bon Jovi song “Always love you” are irritating AF and have been going way too long.

    Then there are the other ones which seem to encourage blokes to carryon like f**kwits in the Tab I.e riding imaginary horses in conga lines etc.

    All commercials with Americans or American voiceovers especially when advertising an Australian product.

    The Foxtel(?) commercial with two AwFuL "players" colliding with the comment "big hits". Who are you kidding?

    Sports bet ads.

    That chick on the Ford ad's is pretentious.

    Real Insurance ad's.

    Trivago is getting on my nerves lately.

    The use of "Throw your arms around me" I find completely out of place and just weird for an insurance company. It's f**king cringeworthy. Needs to be pulled ASAP

    I want to punch her and the little bitch with headphones, singing something inaudible at the end of the latest westpac ad, in the face.

    It sounds like a dingo howling at the end there. Kill it with fire!
