The Great Canadian Annoying Radio Jingle Thread

First, let us get this one out of the way, because he is the king.

Video Link


Most annoying in Ottawa (and most of S. Ontario) - Nobody deals, like DI-LAW-REE. (these bastards)

So what radio ad in your city is annoying as hell? Everytime you are in your car, you hear it and go bonkers?

Discuss.

I'm surprised this bothers so much as I usually am especially pleased by local accents, but I hate it when radio ads overdo it.

There are two here that say "YOU" with a comical level of casual, conversational NL English.

One is for some business and says to come on down "We'd love to see you". There's no way you're reading that with the right tone and emphasis and accent. It's just so overdone.

And another that said "Our Divas of Christmas sold out early last year, so don't you be disappointed."

And sweet Jesus the effing NL Classifieds ads with Snook.

OMG.





Le Clan Panneton, a moving company, has a jingle that's stuck in every Quebecer's ears since at least 20 years. Everyone can sing it here. It's become a classic.

I especially like the ringing tone in the middle of the song, and the receptionist saying «Le Clan Panneton, Bonjour?»

Simplement intemporel...

That was terrible. Some marketing director thinks they created a genius ad that will go viral

for years these EXTREMELYbad commercials have saturated the London Airwaves (well, at least the very shitty class rock and "Bob-FM" (whatever the fuck that is supposed to be) stations).

Another legendary commercial, featuring a legend, for good measure:

Kingston Nissan radio ads always start with their guy yelling HELLO KINGSTON! (Kingston radio really sucks, by the way - virtually no local news, no sports, and awful commercials.)

Then there's Tepperman's in London...

Also in London about 15 years ago there was a commercial for a car dealer with the jingle "See the super-super dealer, no one else can give you more....super dealer! Super dealer!" I can't remember which dealer but it was a real earworm.

Not quite a radio ad, but has anyone in Toronto noticed the poetry readings on 102.1 The Edge during commercial breaks? The short poems are always read by a woman with a Latin American (possibly Colombian) accent. Definitely going after the local hipster crowd.

In Regina (and possibly other cities), it is the "Steelcraft Doors" song. Lol!

Large-scale herbicide commercials. I can't tell you how much I hate commercial breaks while listening to the Riders on the radio.
