    The corpulent burger guy, who I've dubbed "Joe Pesci", is an actor named Allen Lulu. As a mascot he's actually alright but maybe they should resurrect the A&W Root Bear.

    • I've only seen the one with Ms. Sinclair once and thought it was cute. Repetition may beat that perception to death though. I like that they try to keep their ads light and humorous with such a potentially-preachy concept as fake meat.
      I am in no way entitled to your opinion...

      • They've brought back the annoying Mighty Millions Lottery ads.

        • I find those American medicine commercials so annoying.
          "Tell your doctor if you have asthma".
          "Tell your doctor if you have diabetes".
          "Tell your doctor if you have high blood pressure".
          "Tell your doctor what medications you take".

          TELL YOUR DOCTOR IF THESE COMMERCIALS MAKE YOU SICK.

          • The Alstate insurance ads.

            The Mighty Million dollar lottery. The voice over sounds like its marginalizing sick children.

              • The latest CraveTV ad with doorbells over and over drives my dog absolutely up the wall. Thanks a lot, Crave.

                  • Can't stand the Cash Money commercials. I'll not set foot into one of their shops. I prefer to deal with a real bank.

                        That’s because much of the target market is now so old they probably can’t remember the previous ad.

                                That TD Insurance ad makes me giggle. It reminds me of the times I am in an empty bus or a doctor's office and the next random person sits in the seat next to me.
