    Pause is great. I like to pause for about 20 minutes and do other things, then when you resume, you can flash fast through every subsequent commercial.

    Not sure where you are in Illinois but I grew up in Springfield. Do you remember the Empire commercials. 588-2300, Empiiiiirrrrreeee.

    Or the Carpet warehouse guy? (Maybe Jim Stahl, or something like that?)

    Flo is hot?! Maybe you think so because you've never seen Yui Aragaki in a commercial...

    Insurance :

    it’s as if you are forced inside of a casino, you are absolutely NOT allowed to gamble (not allowed to not have insurance) and - the house always wins !

    All that being said, the girl with Flo in the OP’s commercial is cute as a bug’s ear.

    I get online ads for cruise ships. Really? Why don't they just call them floating petri dishes?

    No, it was Jim Staff Carpet Warehouse!!! (though in downstate Illinois it might have been Staph or some other German spelling.)

    LOL. Like getting a tattoo on your cerebral cortex against your will.

    That dumbass little chameleon. Also I don't think I've ever based a buying decision on a commercial, especially an annoying one.

    Pretty much all of them. Lame excuses at trying to be cute or serious and a waste of electrons

    Joe Namath trying to convince me about whatever he’s pushing. Like he needs that hotline to get social security benefits or whatever.

    Most commercials are pretty intolerable. But the insurance companies seem to be in a contest to see which can make theirs the most annoying.

    Anything Flo. And those Charmin bears. That Cars for kids jingle on the radio is the most annoying thing ever.

    For me no modern comes close to those old "ring around the collar".

    Any political commercials.

    Of course, kars4kids and Wentworth are the worst.

    Prescription medicine ads that rehash classic rock songs to try to make their meds look cool.

    I'm just glad I can use an ad blocker on YouTube on my PC and a DVR to skip commercials on the TV.
