Commercials that suck

........and are aired too often in Canada

1. Kirstie Alley for Jenny Craig "It's Rainin' Men commercial". Now, I don't have anything against Kirstie Alley, or the song "It's Rainin' Men", wait I do. Kirstie Alley has seriously creeped me out since she replaced Shelly Long on "Cheers". I get a serial killer vibe from her. As for "It's Rainin' Men" it's a given that a heterosexual male isn't going to like that song. On Court TV Canada that commercial is played every 8 mins.

2. Whichever bank it is that has the stupid "Hands In My Pocket" add. Played constantly, it's a song with one line. Not a very effective ad, since it's on constantly on my network of choice, Discovery Civilization, and I don't even remember what company it's for.

3. Oh Henry, where the guy talks to his hunger (who, strangely, it a guy dressed in a tutu). Nothing against the ad in particular, but it doesn't matter what Oh Henry does to advertise, they'll always be a poor man's Snickers.

4. That Nissan commercial that plays "Dust In the Wind" by Kansas. It just doesn't make any sense that a shipment of new cars would suddenly turn to dust on the truck they're being shipped on, just because they were passed by a Nissan. It's ironic that this would be a Nissan ad, since they're known to rust easily.
