Owing largely to the ubiquity of digital video recorders like TiVo, commercial watching (at least in my household) has become a dated practice.
But sometimes—when you’re in a hotel or at a friend’s house, for instance—commercials are simply inescapable.
It is during these times that I’m struck by how awful commercials are. But it takes an especially bad commercial to make Consumerist’s list
