tv adverts that really wind you up!? What's Yours

Freebasing Rick Scott

 
Posted

My pet hate at the moment is the SKY TV add i believe for Sky One Sponsor.

The Girl walking along singing, Ain't NO-Bah- Deeee, Loves you Bet-eeeer over and over with a line of demented guys walking in a line behind her

 waving there arms about for no apparent reason. Makes me want to give her a good slap coz it just grates.

Is it just me or do i need to get out more :D

Agreed Rick Scott. It has to be the Tui advert.

Whoever decided, that advert would encourage people to rush to their laptops and book a holiday with them should be given their P45.

Cheesy and crass comes to mind.

Anything that Davina 'Shouty' McCall promotes ...why on earth does she have to be constantly squawking and shouting her bloody head off for no apparent sane reason whatsoever, apart from because she bloody well feels like it whenever she's advertising or presenting something ??

Gahhhh !!!

If there was a poll for the worlds most annoying person ever in the history of the universe but you weren't allowed to pick any evil political dictators or Bono , Davina McCall would easily be #1 ,no contest !

BBC devotes as much bloody time as ITV to advertising their own programmes and we got to pay their annoying licence fee.

Over in the States at the moment, and anything advertising pharmaceuticals is annoying.  Takes about 30 seconds telling you how wonderful the drug is, followed by a minutes worth of possible side effects, death being one of them.

I watch a few US channels, I know what you mean about the pharmaceuticals, unbelievable! The other American one is "Chewy" pet products, seems to be on all the time!!

Right, the advert that really does wind me up is the "Born in Carlisle, made in the Royal Navy" one.  They actually used a Carlisle born matelot for the ad, so why did they choose to give him a Geordie voice over?

The plethora of charity ads.....

First things first, they should advertise if the ad you are watching has cost the charity any money to make or show.  

Second, it should be made clear, and ratified, how much funds raised % actually goes to the victims or good cause in question.

Finally, before an ad goes out, it should be checked it's for real and genuine.

Just read a story today about Tony Blairs sister in law getting kicked off a charity board for failure to act in the correct way whilst dealing with a huge charities administration.

'In your face ' feels sometimes like harassment.

There are probably a million reasons why everyone on planet earth should detest Phillip Schofield if you actually went to the trouble of counting them all...then again its quite possible that it's considerably more than a million now I come to think about it...:P

Just approaching Super Bowl 52 this Sunday, and some of the big boys commission adverts (or should I say commercials) just for the occasion, and pay megabucks to have them aired during the game.  Hopefully they'll be more entertaining than Justin Timberlake at the half time show.

For me it's not the TV ads but the ELECTRONIC ADVERTISING BOARDS AT FOOTBALL GROUNDS.

I HATE THEM WITH A PASSION.

At one time I would have crawled over broken glass to watch my local team. Now I haven't watched even 5 minutes of a game for years.

It seems like a LOSE:LOSE for the club AND the advertiser - but I probably have to accept that I'm in a minority of one.

OR AM I?

I know exactly what you mean....the one that did it for me was the Sally Army. Now I like a sing song as much as anybody, and the war cry used to cost me a quid every Saturday night, but I had no idea it was paying for the new gaff in the smoke.. Nothing like slumbing it, is there!

Its reckoned over 70% of income goes on keeping up appearances and only 30% approx on fighting the good fight!

Me thinks it's the wrong way round!

I actually wrote to the the BBC about Emma Willis (When The Voice was on the beeb) complaining about the same thing - her damn shouting!......She seems to have calmed it down now......Ok, could be a coincidence (But they did write back) :D

Any of the Bank adverts - black horse one in particular closely followed by Halifax with Top Cat. Here to help etc. Yeah right!! They will have the shirt off your back and pull the plug on finance to your business without a second thought. The PPI adverts - make a claim. I don't understand. Why should the bank customer make a claim? The banks must know who they ripped off - assume if you do make a claim they must check your claim is valid against their records - so that being the case they know who is due a refund so give those that got ripped off their money back I.e. The banks do the leg work rather than the customer? Or am I missing something here?
