My Favorite Terrible Commercials

Scores of bad commercials squeeze their way into our television shows every day and while most of them are ignored as much as possible, there are a few you simply can't avoid. A classic example is the Charmin Whipple campaign, but there's a store in St. Louis that takes the modern day cake for terrible, but memorable commercials. Anyone who's spent any time in the city is sure to recognize them and their infamous tag.

I was going to post a comment until I realized I'm speechless.

What an insane way to beg for customers. I think they have about 10 different messages in that one ad. I'm not sure if I should start working out, drinking or doing the chicken dance.

I love St. Louis ads. Remember that flying carpet lady? That was awesome.

Someone just sent me this link, and now I'm not sure which I'm more disturbed by.

I followed that link. I wouldn't recommend it.

I'm staring wide-eyed at my computer in utter, total astonishment. My faith in advertising has been completely destroyed.

We need a translator.

I forgot about the flying carpet woman! She always wore a crown...
