This is the Song That Never Ends

A well-done ad is a great thing. You’ll know it when you see one, and you’ll often find that a certain chain of events is sure to follow. First, you’ll probably watch it a few more times, just to get the full effect. After that, it’s likely that you’ll want to share your fantastic find with your family, co-workers, and all 600 of your closest Facebook friends. Lastly, if you’re anything like us, you’ll probably blog about it too.

Unfortunately, this is not one of those times. This post is about those awful ads that, as hard as you try, you can’t seem to get away from. Those annoyingly repetitive campaigns that were so bad the first time around, you can’t even begin to understand why they made a whole set of them.

Our collection of personal least favorites all seem to have something in common: a terrible, often off-pitch, can’t-get-it-out-of-your-head theme song. Some might call that genius advertising, but around here we call it torture.

So here you go – a few of the ads we love to hate.

P.S. Truvia – Aside from your painstakingly bad song, we’re also not buying that your product is better than flirting and french fries. Sorry.

    I don’t watch television at all so it’s likely I haven’t seen these, therefore afraid to watch them given the title! 🙂

      Well aren’t you lucky! Each of these campaigns has at least a couple TV spots out right now so it sometimes feels like I can’t get away from them!
