Horrible Commercials That Discouraged People's Business

Someone on AskReddit asked for people to share their experiences with commercials that were so bad, they ultimately deterred interest in people giving companies any business. Breaking out the loud, squeaking tires on a commercial is no way to go about winning over the hearts of someone. Or, showing the same commercial over and over again, like they forgot about it when they saw the commercial a mere few minutes ago. 

AskReddit users respond to a thread about commercials that were so terrible they discouraged people's business.

Multi-Level Marketing Hun Gets Confronted With The Facts, Can't Handle It

Multi-level marketing "companies" are shady businesses that use a pyramid scheme model to rope in desperate people and encourage them to "be their own boss" by hawking stuff like health and beauty supplements to their friends and family over Facebook. The odds that anyone will ever be successful at these is incredibly small, and the companies often pass on the costs to their own "employees," which results in stuff like this guy who reconnected with a high school friend after his dad died so he could sell health supplements.

Client Refuses to Pay Web Designer, So He Edits The Guy's Site to Advertise His Competitors

It's generally a better policy not to lie and steal, especially from people who have a plan to strike back. Kinda like the time this guy got stiffed so he grouted a bathroom with sugar.
