Hmm, considering that she died in 1987, that might not work too well.

Unless you're looking for beef jerky.

They don't seem to have that ad for Great Adventures with the scary old man dancing.
I do not like those ads.

You must be talking about those creepy Six Flags commercials where the younger guy is dressed (scarily) as the old man and dances to Venga Boys.  I too am glad those commercials have gone the way of the dodo.  What's even worse was the old scary guy would drive around in a bus and pick up kids on the way Six Flags.
 
And why did he speak with that lisp, "Moe Fwags, Moe Fwun, Six Fwags!"?

Yeah, I was disturbed when I read that the old man was really a young adult around his 20's dressed in an old man suit. Creepy. Usually 20 something year olds want to look younger, not older.:S

Right, I've seen the Beyaz commercials.  I've also seen one of those "if you've taken this drug and died you can sue" type legal ads where they were talking about Yaz.  I forget what kind of damage it did but I wouldn't touch any medicine with "yaz" anywhere in the name with a 70ft pole.  Of course I wouldn't have touched it before thanks to their godawful annoying commercials, but ya know.

Haven't seen Glady lately either.  Maybe they're gearing up for the new Fall scents.

She's now in some cereal commercial in which she drinks the milk from the bowl and her husband catches her and she gives that annoying impish grin as if to say "Oops. You caught me.  Aren't I adorable?"

Could Jimmy Johnson's ads for the extenders please die a similar death? How embarrassing for his wife that he does those. Do they REALLY need the money that badly? Of course, being married to him, she's probably well accustomed to embarrassment by now.

Also, please sh*tcan the Viagra bluish tinted "You're at the age to accept the challenge" themed commercials.  The latest one is with some impotent douchebag on a sailboat.

The Viagra ads are wrong on so many levels, but here lately is been that God-awful music that drives me up a wall.

I'm glad that one Dannon yogurt commercial is gone. You know which one I'm talking about, I'm sure. Please don't make me describe it. It was the reason I wound up on this site and lurked here.
Please, stop saying "Awesome" in commercials! Your actors are not awe-inspiring and neither is your product.

I'm sorry I don't know how to put in a box someone else's comment, but I'm referencing Donathon's comment about the pig eating bacon. Also this is not about a commercial, but I just had to say this.  My daughter (teenager) was sleeping over at a friends house. The friend lived in a rural area, so they had chickens in the backyard walking around.  My daughter and her friend were eating KFC and giving the chickens scraps of it.  She told me this and at first I didn't think much about it until a minute later...I was OMG...that is so WRONG!!!  But still I laughed...alot.
