There's a prescription commercial (I forget for what)where at the end, instead of the announcer doing the disclaimers blurb, there is a guy who is supposed to be a doctor, talking to his male patient telling him all the bad things about this drug. He's spouts the same verbatim disclaimers they always use, like it is supposed to sound so much more genuine coming from a supposed doctor, but instead it sounds twice as stupid:

"You shouldn't take {whatever} if you have liver problems..." (Hello??? You're my doctor and you're not aware if I have liver problems or not???)

"..Or if you are pregnant or thinking of becoming pregnant.." (Hey doc, remember that dangly thing you were hanging onto when you told me to turn my head and cough?? I figure they would have taught you this in Biology 101 at Med School, but I really don't think there is too much chance of me getting pregnant!)

I was half expecting him to finish with "Ask your doctor...oh wait, that's me!...if {whatever} is right for you!"

All Rx commercials should die!!!

Here's a fun parody of the old Yaz commercials (group of young women friends in a bar, one happens to be a doctor who spouts all the warnings and risk factors for using Yaz):

Yeah I've always thought that one was pretty stupid too. Shouldn't your doctor have all these records and stuff to know what kind of conditions you got? Unless he's burning old paperwork to keep his house warm at night after he got taken to the cleaners in a malpractice suit like what happens when people die because you don't know stuff like your patient's a guy and won't get pregnant.

That is the worst acting I've seen in a commercial in a long time.

The one I hate is one of those diet pills where there is this bimboey looking doctor who says, "I recommend this product" and then in little words it says that she invented it.
