    Sportsnet played that ProtectAlbertaBusiness.ca ad 3 times in that last commercial break.
    3 times in one commercial break!
    Enough is enough indeed.

    "did i say there was only one special edition" and every other one in that series with a spokesperson even more self righteous than i am talking to "real people - not actors" (including the latest with "real dogs - not actors" as if even those responsible for them know how annoying they are).

    Latest annoyance: The tuneless, toneless, lyricless mob 'vocals' in the Nissan and Tangerine ads.

    PetSmart's dog grooming ad because of that horrible "Worth It" song by Fifth Harmony. The oversaturated airtime on TV, especially on CTV, increases my irritability.

    The McDonald's ad with the staff and customers singing Happy Birthday to Canada's 150th.

    So annoying. And where are the foreign workers behind the counter?

    I love watching all the corporations jumping on the 150 bandwagon, hoping for some extra sales. P1ss off American company.

    Another annoying one is the Calaway Park ad they run every summer because of that high-pitched teenage girl's voiceover.
    Oh, and Telus has just brought back Danny the installer for a new ad.

    Newest addition to the list is the Pizza Hut ad that has the guy with the extra face painted around his mouth. If he's trying to sound like Mr T, he's failing miserably.

    And I'll be glad when the triathlon is over so that they can quit running that laughably low-budget comic book themed ad.

    The two guys with a canoe over their heads blindly walking out into a roadway. Too bad the approaching car has the automatic braking feature. And then the girl driving's polite shrug in reaction to the two doofuses.

    And now there's the KFC ad with the father and daughter doing the car karaoke ("Flashdance - What A Feeling")

    Just about any men-are-stupid ad by Boston Pizza. The lot of them in fact.

    Comedy network promo ads. (over and frikken over as they don't seem to have sold many paid commercials)

    I saw the Shaw "Talk to your TV" ad exactly once, by accident, and I knew it should be listed here.

    Ford Employee Pricing. Not a mute button issue but I want to look away.
    What on earth did they do to those poor actors? Just watch how they are having trouble simply walking around the Ford trucks. Something off in their food maybe?

    An ad that makes me reach for the channel change buttons:
    Pennington's with the woman fighting with her jeans, then her dancing at the end.

    This thread is almost 10 years old, but I don't think anyone has specifically mentioned this one:
    "Cars Lost Less in Wetaskiwin!"

    Another annoying local car ad song is the one for Sherwood Honda (the ones featuring that teenage hip-hop dancer), sounds like a bad synthpop ditty from the 80s.

    A couple more ads I wish were off the air:
    Schwab Chevrolet - old man in sports car mistaking the salesman for a young attractive female.
    McDonalds - androgynous cashier at gas station staring at guy squeezing every drop of gas into his fuel tank.

    Every so often I see a good creative ad but most of the time it’s hard to believe any companies regularly hand over a bunch of cash for lame, boring and/or predictable ads.

    Parody of a Jobs/Musk/Facebook-guy/Millenial unveiling was the whole point! I only saw the ad once and I got that in the first 5 seconds.

    Not strictly mutable because its half muted itself, but is CBC Edmonton's 30 second promo intentionally produced with sound dropouts? Or did the money run out?

    That Alberta Blue Cross ad with the bouncing blue ball. Once I see that woman doing yoga, I switch the channel. The annoyance is enhanced by oversaturation.

    Aha! They've fixed to audio dropouts after two weeks of running the stupid ad. Asleep at the switch, were they?

    "From bean to cup, that is how we brew it up!"

    Good god, most annoying commercial of the decade.

    While annoying, and oversaturated, it is not the most annoying of the decade...

    C'mon, we've had the City Ford schlock for what, 3 decades now? Reigning champion for sure....

    It's like we watched her grow up from teen to middle aged woman. Her voice is not as loud and screechy now as it was in the first decade.

    Been a steady gig for her. Can't be too many in the acting game. Except Michael Bell maybe, or a daytime soap.

    Even only catching a couple seconds of it when skipping ads, that Tim Horton's commercial with the dancing guy has got to be on this list.

    I don't get that the penguins need a modified snorkeling device or why they need a Visa to order fish.

    Do you realize that they talk too? Notwithstanding that they also own a home, a car, have a bank account and work out at the gym.

    You guys are soooo funny that you get upset over a commercial with stuffed penguins.

    how about the petsmart ads that boast about how they donate to canadian animal charities but the ad shows one in florida.

    it's like "they're just canadians, we don't have to bother to refilm or even cut 5 seconds from our us commercial for that market".

    BTW I really wish Alberta Blue Cross would film a new batch of ads every year if only so that people aren't sick of them after a while. Dunno about you lot but I'll gladly pay a premium increase for that!

    Hyundai now trumpeting another 'feature', a beep that alerts you not to open your door as something is approaching from behind. Imagine, there are other vehicles on the road. God forbid you should use your neck muscles and actually look behind you.

    a good driving instructor will teach you to open the door with your right hand and not your left. it forces you to put your body in position to naturally shoulder check before opening the door. it also forces you to shoulder check far enough to catch approaching bicycles and not just cars.
