Videos: Top ten commercials you should skip on Dish -- or maybe not
In a rare interview, Dish Network's Charlie Ergen defends the satellite service's commercial-skipping device. Which made us wonder about the top ten commercials that most deserve to be skipped -- but the question's more complicated than we thought, since many spots on worst-ad lists like this one struck as kinda awesome in a so-bad-it's-hilarious way. Check out the roster below, and let us know which ones deserve oblivion -- and which actually demand multiple views.
Number 10: Max from Blue Tax
It's not just the terrible animation that renders Max repellent. It's also the irritatingly mewling voice and dialogue that makes a conversation with your accountant seem fascinating by comparison.
Number 9: The Klondike prize
Colorado Rockies vs. Arizona Diamondbacks
TicketsFri., Sep. 1, 6:40pm
Colorado Rockies vs. San Francisco Giants
TicketsMon., Sep. 4, 1:10pm
