Describe your worst local radio commercials!

Okay, a blatant ripoff of Halx's tv commercial thread. What is the worst local radio commercial where you live.

Around Denver it would have to be Luby Chevrolet's commercials. I'm not sure if the guy is trying to rap, or what he is doing but he talks in this big fake voice in short bursts and the commercial ends with the announcer saying "The Big L, Lou BEE Chevrolet, Yipee-Yi-Yo-Ki-Yay!" Irritating.

Oh where do I begin?

That window commercial with the annoying brain-rupturing ear-splitting squeal of "WE TOLD YOU SO!!!!!". Its repetive and annoying. They do it at least 500 times before the commercial ends.

That car commercial voiced by a guy who sounds exactly like Iago from the Aladdin cartoon - any commercial that screams at me automatically gets ignored. That is doubly true for the kind of grating scream perfected by this man. I describe it as a flock of swans being gently ground up alive in a wood chipper.

Ok, this is unbeatable.

It's an ad for an indoor go-cart track called "Daytona Indoor Raceway"

it goes like this:

"3 WHINEY CHILDREN: Will you take us to Daytona ?
FRUSTRATED FATHER: No!

3 WHINEY CHILDREN: Will you take us to Daytona ?
FRUSTRATED FATHER: No!

3 WHINEY CHILDREN: Will you take us to Daytona ?
FRUSTRATED FATHER: No!

3 WHINEY CHILDREN: Will you take us to Daytona ?
FRUSTRATED FATHER: No!

3 WHINEY CHILDREN: Will you take us to Daytona ?
FRUSTRATED FATHER: No!

3 WHINEY CHILDREN: Will you take us to Daytona ?
FRUSTRATED FATHER: No!...."

...for about 30 more seconds.

Then the Father goes "Ohh... ok", at which point all three kinds, in turn in these lame deadpan voices say:

"Yeah. Woo hoo. Go dad."

Then a voicover saying:

"Daytona Indoor Raceway, so much fun, you'll never hear the end of it"

and then the kids chime in...

3 WHINEY CHILDREN: Will you take us to Daytona ?
FRUSTRATED FATHER: But we've already been!
3 WHINEY CHILDREN: Will you take us to Daytona...

/fadeout.

Seriously I want to find out what marketing scumfuck came up with this gimmicky ad (blatanly ripping off The Simpsons' Mt Splashmore gag) and punch his lights out.

This ad has been running for as long as I care to remember. The new version has some wanker talking over top, saying "come on everybody, you know the words... - sing it with me.."

He'll be singing through a wired jaw if I ever get my hands on him.

There's a guy doing an Arnold Schwarzenneger (sic?) impression calling himself the "governator" and that whenever he's in the area he uses XYZ business. It's pretty horrible. Obviously not very effective either since I can't, for the life of me, remember what business or even what type of business he's promoting.

Fortunately, Sirius satellite radio has freed me from commercials.

There is one commercial that makes me change stations everytime I hear it; and I don't even know what it is for. It has some moron "training" employees like bootcamp and they just keep repeating "Thank you for your business" over and over. Fortunately I have a button on my steering wheel to advance to my next programed station. That way I can flip over even if I can't lean over to reach the radio.
