Here are the Five Worst TV Commercials of 2011 [VIDEO]
With the amount of money companies spend on commercials, and the number of middle managers who have to approve them, it’s AMAZING how many horrible ads slip through.
The Consumerist.com just released their annual survey of the WORST commercials in the U.S., and it’s safe to say they’re all VERY deserving. Here are the top five:
#1.) Luvs Diapers, “Poop, There It Is”. An animated commercial featuring babies aggressively pooping their diapers, all set to a parody version of the early ’90s hip-hop song “Whoomp! There It Is”.
#2.) AT&T, “Woman Hates Her Husband”. A husband signs his family up for an unlimited plan, so his wife berates him and reveals how much she hates their marriage…because she doesn’t realize the plan was free.
I vote for this one for the worst of 2011. I have always had a problem with the old cliche of the bumbling-man-can’t-do-anything-right-and-the-wife-and-kids-think-he’s-an-idiot thing. This one takes that plot line to a whole new level.
#3.) Summer’s Eve, “Hail to the V”. No explanation necessary.
#4.) AT&T and Samsung, “Spider”. A woman sees a spider on a smartphone and it looks so realistic she freaks out in a restaurant, shrieking uncontrollably.
#5.) GEICO, “Apps”. This is the GEICO commercial where three guys in an office use different apps on their smartphones to celebrate the weekend. It doesn’t QUITE tie in to insurance, and it got WAY overplayed.
