    For me, the one commercial that makes me turn off the radio as soon as I hear the music is Kars For Kids. I don't care if it's the one with the warbling old fool and the kid singing, or the Pat Benatar wannabe, that crap is getting shut off ASAP.

    Kars4Kids is a scam, rated poor by Charity Navigator, and fails to disclose it's religious purposes.
    I haven't heard their obnoxious radio ad in quite some time, because I boycott stations that impose it upon me.

    Anybody pushing me to buy precious metals makes me wonder who is selling instead of buying?

    Atty gen of the state of Oregon reached a settlement with them in which they can no longer advertise in the state. They are a fraud, it's not just for kids but only certain kids of a certain religion doing certain things.

    Unfortunately wmal runs it, I just shut the radio off.

    From what I understand the originators of the ad know it pisses people off and think it's hilarious.

    Zyppah. Make the volume control on the steering wheel worth every penny. I use the kars4kids tune to tune out the Zyppah noise.

    Any of of them. But especially the used car salesman with the insane sound effects.

    A democrat running for office wanted to project the republican incumbent as a hick so the commercial featured a banjo singing performer singing lyrics that were unkind to the republican. Funny thing was, people that didn't listen to the lyrics got sick of the song and vowed not to vote for the guy responsible for the ad. Fortunately, elections are over and so is the ad.

    I don't listen to any of them. I just keep the Ipod plugged in.

    all of them.
    my kids bought me an MP3 player some years ago. I listen to what i want to hear.
    nobody is trying to sell me a used car, or a bottle of Viagra.
    if i watch a commercial TV channel, the adds get muted, immediately.
    don't call me, I'll call you!

    I can't stand TV commercials. I record everything I want to watch and then fast forward through the commercials when I watch it.

    Any ad, ever. I have Sirius XM specifically for the purpose of avoiding having to listen to endless, non-stop ads. The other day my son turned the radio on in my truck and out of 6 pre-set stations ALL of them were on ads. Given the choice, I would never buy a radio again that is capable of receiving ads. I don't mind paying for music services that limit extremely the # of ads I have to listen to. In fact, if they could make it completely ad free, I'd pay more. I don't watch commercials either. I DVR as much as I can and fast forward through commercials the instant they start. Further, if the wife is watching something live, I play this game where I try and change the channel before any advertiser can get their name in. I purposely avoid buying products from companies that run ads. I am of the belief that if a product is worth a ****-someone I know will tell me about it. If you have to constantly barrage people with information about your product-it's probably not something I'd be interested in owning. I realize that some new products have to get their start somewhere, but again-my friends or family will recommend it if it really is worth anything. I'll pass on ALL ads from any media. Just like the socialist liberally owned media-I'll pass on ALL of it.

    That guy doing this commercial is an obnoxious ass. I wouldn't buy this product just for that reason.

    That one is awkward. Starts off "My name is Brandt..." WE DON'T NEED TO KNOW THE ANNOUNCER'S NAME!

    Unfortunately, both that scam and precious metals ads run on the Sat. Radio Fox News Channel.

    Any of the radio adds that end with "call 1 800 bla bla bla, 1 800 bla bla bla, 1 800 bla bla bla. That's 1 800 bla bla bla.......

    I probably miss a lot of good radio because those commercials come on and I turn the radio off and forget to turn it back on again.
