BT adverts.

Either confusing
or annoying. Normally involve the IQ mentality Fred mentioned (yep, normally the bloke aswell). Most of the time they make no sense. All of the time put me off using BT services.

Still though those compensation adverts annoy me the most. They make it out like 8,000 was donated to the 'victim' (usually because of their own stupidity) because of the terrible mental anguish he/she went through. The fact is that money had to come from somewhere, and it comes from the 'criminal' or his/her insurance which is payed for by YOU - THE PERSON WATCHING THIS FUCKING AD.

I think we're all forgetting the horrible horror of that Pepsi Girl, who, lucky has been taken off tv here in the States. Worst thing ever-when they would show those stupid commericals right before movies would start in the theater. AGGH!

That reminds me. Does anyone else get those "Friendship is important" commericals in front of the movie in theaters? You know, the one with the fat little Asian kid sitting on a bench, watching all the other kids play baseball. Then, this kid like 3 yrs. older comes up to him and they walk off hand-in-hand?

The narrator: "Be a friend!"

Yep Cartoon Network does have a huge problem of over exposing their new shows, with in a month it should die down and there will be a whole bunch of new ads for another show.   roll eyes

I find it much funnier the children bible song adds they show at 12 at night during TV-14 Anime...

They are misleading. BT anytime is not anytime. Anytime also implies all the time. This is not the case, it is only 16 out of 24 hours you can use it.

I also hate that car advert with the song
'I'm sticking with you, 'cause i'm made out of glue' ect. Everyone is singing that to annoy everyone else!

Also, check out the sig!

Dude, if they only made a shampoo that made women orgasm.....

How about those commericals that use classic punk/hardcore songs without bothering to learn what the song is actually about?

Ex.
Iggy Pop - Lust for Life
   About a herion addiction and how to overcome it. Originally used in the movie Trainspotting, now for Carinval Cruises.

The Clash - London Calling
   About the working class of England, and the inherent class war involved. Now being used to sell Jaguars. Irony, it 'appens.

And the Carlsberg ones were banned as they were suggesting oral sex!

These days I don't see as many Sky or digital adverts, although I used to see the "Hey Monkey..." ones with Johnny Vegas a lot.

Yeah I have a brief memory of that... why did they get rid of the Poodle in your Pot Noodle   big grin

Also the oral sex ad is defiately for Carling. The Carlsberg ad is where the old woman locks the Carlsberg trucker in the cellar because he is helping the export of the Danes favourite lager.

Also since when has one of these helped protect against BO  tongue

"Who gives you ex-tra?? Who, Who Who Who????"
For a bank or loan co. or some crap.
There's nothing worse than a one hit wonder in a commercial, lasting longer than the actual hit lasted in the charts.

Charmin toilet paper with an animated grizzly bear reading newspapers etc.

A Specsavers ad with 2 Sloths (extremely lazy tree crawlers) talking about contact lenses!!
There's so much wrong with that ad.
1st, sloths don't wear contact lenses, if they did they'd be too lazy and wear glasses instead, BAH!!
2nd, sloths can't talk, especially in a stupid accent like that, and it's not even attempting to be funny.

I can do a great impression of Sloth #2.

Those "Who gives you extra?" advert can be annoying at times. One advert I am starting to dislike is the BT one with the phone which sings "Karma karma karma chameleon..."

That Halifax guy JUST CANNOT DANCE!  Hasn't HALIFAX got these people on some bizarre contract whereby they don't get paid for the adverts?  They just publicly humiliate their employees for free.

Anyways.  My Worse ad: Yes Car Credit.

The one which went "We only say 'YES' to nice people" - RIGHT!  I can see them tacking this little adendum onto their Credit Agreement:

"Have you recently cheated on your wife?"
"Are you a thief or a liar?"
"Have you jilted your partner at the alter?"

I'm sorry sir, you can't have this car - you're not very nice.

Best Ad: Peter Kay as Olympic Diver in John Smiths Ad, "THE RUNNING BOMB".

Love it.

I love/hate that commercial with that old bald guy, advertising his educational CD-ROM thingies, teaching people how to use Windows.

If you can't figure out how to use windows, you'd have to be 100 years old, and also brain damaged. And even then, you wouldn't know how to work the CD drive in the first place. But hey, the first CD is free, so why the hell not.
