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

Recommended Posts

Going back to Rick's first post, was the ad supposed to be a take on the dance numbers in La La Land. Did some ad man (or woman) think , so people liked the film so they're gonna love our ad. 

The other holiday ad by Jet 2 is just as annoying and has been going on too long, give it a rest. At least it is shorter now and fades out before the song has that ooo - ooo- whoo -whoo -whoo- whoo.

A new contender for worst ad must be the one for someones double glazed windows. Is it supposed to be so bad it's good, if so it's just rubbish.

One I quite like is the one with two girls singing together with one  playing  keyboard, don't know what it's advertising though.

Not that I want a loan and certainly wouldn't use these but any of the various ads for loans that give about three seconds to read the terms and conditions in writing where it blends perfectly with the background and the  interest is however many thousand % or the voice over suddenly starts talking at 100 words an hour.

I think "charity" ads should have their own dedicated channel. The little boy Elliott who is deaf and blind must be approaching retirement age by now! 

And the kid in Africa who walks 7 miles a day to get fresh water. Wouldn't it be easier to live nearer the water? Just saying. :wicked:

Some of the young folk might have something to say about that , in fact they may well say he is the modern producer akin to the great george Kerr . 🎶🎶

The young folk can say what the hell they like about the marvellous and enormously talented Wil I Am, hehe.

Fair play to em' they're entitled to their own opinions.

If they say it in front of me loudly enough tho they'll be getting a swift backhander, mind...:P

On a positive (To contrast the awful ones so still 'on topic') :wink: I do like the Cadbury Chocolate ad where the little girl buys a bar of Chocolate for her mum's birthday by paying in toys......"Here's your change".....(The shop keeper gives her back her prized toy horse)

Me soppy? :D

The Apple ad with that smug kid whizzing about with his tablet computer and then the old person asks what's he doing on his computer , he replies "what's a computer". Well, Apple you're not the only people who make computers and don't patronise older people. Another reason why I hate Apple.

Somewhere in the depths of hell Steve Jobs is still laughing.

Watched the Super Bowl live last night and had to endure 3 hours of adverts for an hour of actual American Football.  To be fair, the game was excellent, and as I was rooting for the underdogs, Philadelphia Eagles, it was a great result, especially seeing the Patriots quarterback Tom Brady get sacked in the fourth quarter.  Every time the ball went dead they cut to an ad break.  That, combined with the inane commentary, made for a long night.  But getting back to the adverts, the worse was probably Budweiser, letting us all know how they've supplied canned water to the various disaster hit regions of the US.  The M & Ms ad with Danny Devito was amusing.....

Which channel? It was live on BBC1 - so not a single advert.

NBC.  I'm in the States at the moment.  Don't think I'd have stayed up all night to watch it back home.

Ah thanks Steve

I have watched quite a few Superbowls all the way through but have to admit I didn't last the course this year, 

Still quite impressed that despite all the TV ads in the US there is not much advertising in the stadium itself. Not pitch side anyway. Unlike our football. My pet hate. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

What about the adverts for women who apparently need to buy the most disgustingly enormous (and apparently sexy/making you feel confident) paper knickers because there is a pandemic number of women peeing themselves.......

Sorry guys, but someone had to address it!!

Everyone of them!

Was gonna start a Facebook page called "BadAdUK" :D

Worst ones at the moment is surely the new TUI ad, WTF is that about? reps fanning people on the beach then dancing away, how on earth a multi million pound company like Thomson sanction that is anybody's guess.

BT ad. What are they all laughing about? such a stupid advert that must have cost a heap of cash to make.

My old fave Tombola, yeah, right, OK so it's some sort of social club when silly females laugh at nothing while playing bingo outdoors, seriously?

It's pretty obvious to me that one company is making them in the UK as they are all basically the same,

Best ones? Specsavers, always funny.

And breathe........:P

I know it's been mentioned before, but it has to be mentioned again....

The good old US of A medication adverts.

For anybody who has not sat through an hour or more of standard TV, it's 10 mins of programme and 5 mins of ads.

The medicine thats going to cure your itch, is then protected for the resultant inevitable scratch that's a direct result of taking that medicine.

Paranoia gone mad.

And it puts you off your food, programme, will to live.

So glad (not) everything over there is coming over here!
