Worst Annoying New Online Ad

Like a lot of people, I spend a great deal of time on YouTube wasting time watching videos made by people with too much time - mostly let's plays of games I either don't have or am too lazy to buy and get working on my computer.

Unfortunately, YouTube and most other online video sources play ads before their videos. I have no problem with this, because they have to make money somehow! But the problem is, they usually play the same ads every single time! I don't mind seeing ads, but simply despise seeing the same one over and over again.

Lately they started playing what has to be the most annoying ad I have ever seen. Ever.



Why do I hate this ad? Well, there are several reasons. The fact that it is something you pour on your head to replace your hair, and no doubt doesn't work as advertised and looks like total ass? Probably. I mean, I'm not balding, so this product obviously isn't for me either way.

However, I think I have such an adverse reaction to the ad because of how cheap it feels. You have the flashy "taking a picture" effect enhanced with the cheesy "would have been laughed out of a 90's dance club and is probably preset in someone's Casio keyboard" techno soundtrack. Does anybody think that makes people want to purchase your product???

Must work on some people, because there are a number of videos from guys demonstrating the product, and showing it doesn't work as advertised:


So, yeah. This is my new least favorite, most hated annoying online ad. Please feel free to share your most hated ad here. Let the anger flow through you!
