No matter how much you watch Netflix, YouTube, or Hulu Plus, and even if you’re one of those annoying people who loves to say, “I don’t even own a TV!” it’s still basically impossible to avoid TV commercials. Sometimes they’re funny and entertaining, but generally, they suck. But then there are those rare commercials that are funny precisely because they’re so bad. We love those commercials — even if the products they’re selling are also unfathomably bad.

No — you’d mix it up yourself like a normal person!
