I was watching some news from CNN video on their website.  This stupid annoying commercial kept showing before every single video. It shows something about Sprint helping someone surounded by bears in the forest.    The tune tries hard to be catchy and is really dumb, but the worse part of the ad is the whistling sounds playing to the tune ARGGGGG Angry Did I mention it is extremely annoying?  Annoying enough that I don't plan to ever again look at news videos on that website.
This is one of those adds that annoy me to the extreme (given that it took me roughly 15 mins to hate it)!!!!

I also hate the dancing, spinning cell phone ads, Sprint's, Verizon's, all of them. By that I mean, where a phone, all by itself, punches it's own buttons, opens and closes, and spins to show itself off. And the way they move the phone superfast to position it, then ssssllloowwwwwllllyyy rotate it, then superfastzipit across the screen then sssssllllllooooowwwwwlllllyyyyyyyyyy rotate it again.

I don't even know what current cell phone models are this year, because cell phone ads make me grab for my remote control as a reflex action, completely beyond my conscious thoughts.

Of course, if the phone companies showed their new phones in someone's hand, they might not sell many new ones when potential customers see that the keyboard is so small, a normal adult index finger will push six or more buttons at the same time.

I really REALLY  REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY HATE the Sprint TV ads that the continuously LOOP at the bottom when I'm watching clips from Late Night with Conan O'Brian. Their stupid animations slow the playing speed WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYY down, and make thne video look choppy,ARGH!!!! NO WONDER people go to Youtube!!!!

I understand the need for sponsorship, but PLEASE nbc HAVE YOUR animated ads STOP, DO NOT CONTINUALLY LOOP THEM!!!!!!!
One good thing about TV-you could always turn it off
