I love those little things. They're the creation of Joel Veitch, who runs the site Rather Good -- home of the infamous "Marching Kittens" and "Gay Bar" Flash videos. The Quizno's guys come from the "We Like the Moon" video.

Yeah, I think those ads are terrible. Does anyone actually expect people to go to Quizno's because of those things?

Oh, and I really hate that Chef Boyardee commerical where the little girl is about to burst into tears because she 'can't have the Chef.' And then the can follows her home...ugh.

I'm not saying the commercials are good from an advertising standpoint. I don't feel hungry for a Quiznos sub after seeing them. But they don't make my ears bleed or anything, like 84% of all other commercials. I'd much rather sit through some Quiznos commercials than some McDonalds commercials.

Any Brits remember that anti-smoking ad that was run recently? The one where they talked about all that white gunk in your arteries. God, that just made me want to puke. I just wonder why everyone has a problem with ads like the Christmas Mr Kipling one, but they'll leave something as disgusting as that on. It was all just shock tactics and I doubt it had any effect other than causing widespread vomiting  hmpf

I think they are dead hamsters. The way they're all curled up like that, they've got to be dead. I don't know why, but they don't annoy me at all. I think they're actually kind of funny (in a stupid way).

Oh, yes. I hate that commercial. Chef Boyardee isn't even that good. Besides, who calls it "Chef" anyway? I can't help but think what happens after the commercial ends, though...

Girl: No, mommy! Honest, I didn't steal it!
Mom: Oh, and I suppose it just "rolled here!"
Girl: It did!
Mom: LIIEESSSSSS!!! Besides, you can't have it. You had Chef all week.
Girl *Bursts into tears*

But the commercials I reaallly hate, with a flaming passion of hateful hate, are the OVALTINE commercials. Oh...my GOD! They're so cheesy! ARRGGGHHH!   mad

The new Boost Juice ad (in Australia) is one of the worst commercials I've seen for a while. Also, I get really pissed of by those bloody Nutri-Grain ads!

The one where they're smoking with the fat (or whatever it is) dripping out the cigarette? That's nasty. I know they're getting people to stop, but can't they think about the rest of us that have to watch that?

And they're bringing out another campaign! Now they're going to be putting pictures of diseased organs on cigarette packets,

How about the recent ads for AJ's when they changed the shape. I can imagine what would happen when they find out the person who did it,

Girl:THERE HE IS!

Man: That's right, I made the apple jacks shaped like jacks. But they have the same taste as always.

Boy: This is more criminal then that time they tried to make them taste like apples!

Girl: Oh, that's it! Let them make sense now!

Man: What the hell are you freaks talking about! They make sense like this

Girl: SHOOT HIM!

I figured what's really wrong with the new McDonald's commercials... they're playing basketball in roller blades! That's crazy! If they do that, it should at least be realistic, with all the ghastly injuries that would occur during such a game.

Oh, and I like those Quiznos ad. It's so obnoxious.

There's this satelite TV (or maybe it's digital cable) commercial that I loathe.  It starts out with a poor, inocent mailman:

Announcer: (VO) Larry the Mailman hates the end of the month...

Man offscreen: There he is!  Get him!

Announcer: (VO) That's the time the cable bills go out.

(Homewners on Larry's run proceed to chase after him like he was the Frankenstien monster or something.  Cut to Smug guy in his house, looking over the procedings.)

Smug guy: If only they'd switch to [product]...

And it's more or less a standard commerical from that point.  But what is the deal with the angry cable customers?  Do they feel that they should not be forced to endure such things as paying for their channel selection?  Am I supposed to sympathise with these twits who don't realize there's a price for every service?  And even if I did, why take it out on the mailman?  Poor guy's just doing his job.  Do the dumb cable customers not realize their are other options?  The guy with whatever-product-it-is seems pretty smug to me, I bet he's always bragging to his neighbours about his superior system.  Do... He... Are... Man, I'm getting pretty upset here.  I better go lie down for a  while.

That's a better idea because it targets smokers themselves. I don't really care whether people smoke or not but at least non-smokers don't have to put up with it that way. It makes you wonder why you decided not to smoke in the first place, since you're forced to watch this crap anyway.

And while it's okay to offend the audience if you're making an anti-smoking/charity donations/drink-driving advert, it's completely outrageous for any other reason. That Mr Kipling advert (the one with the 'graphic' birth of Christ) was funny, but that got banned because it might be considered 'offensive'.

I hate this one anti-abortion ad where an African-American woman talks about her peoples' history in slavery.  She then says she knows what it's like to have her choices taken away because of that (even though she did not actually go through slavery herself).  Then she says nobody should have that choice to kill an unborn baby, which completely contradicts her previous statement.  It's just a dumb idea to use slavery for anti-abortion purposes anyways.

"I'm lovin' it" is short for "I am loving it," which can be rearranged to say "ailing vomit."  Discuss.

Anyway, those kids in that happy meal advert are too old for that sort of stuff. At that age, I was burning things with my mates, not scarfing down fast food mainly because we we're poor.

You know what I really hate? Kid's ads. The parents are all made out to be a bunch of uncool idiots, and the kids told how impressive and hip they are. Especially those goshawful Chuckie Cheese ads, where the parents fall over each other trying to imitate the kids, who are making "cool" dances and poses as Chuckie Cheese repeats the phrase over and over "Parents just don't get it!".

They don't even use a capital I. It's just plain non-capitalised chat language:

"i'm lovin' it"

Worst advert currently on TV? Purple Loans! The cheesiness, the music, oh for the love of God! It's so bad I actually mute the television while it's on!

Second worst is Norton Loans with some stupid guy who balances on a tightrope with a load of cardboard boxes with things like "outstanding loads" and "hire purchases" written on them. At the end it says "don't slip up" and he does the most fake stumble I have ever seen. Ever.

I also agree with the crappy McDonalds advert, especially with the stupid kids. "What's in the box, stripy socks?" I'll shove your head in a box if you don't shut up. The smoking advert mentioned earlier is also pretty harsh. It often makes me feel sick.

Well that was a fun rant.

I really hate that advert for AOL Broadband with that Scottish girl going to Drama school or whatever. So annoying. Rubbish advert, to almost certainly reflect a rubbish product. Also, the Tango adverts. What the hell is up with those? The newest one with the guy velcroed to the ceiling and falls head first into the bath tub. I would have prefered it if he had missed...

There's a public service announcement that particularly annoys me showing a little girl pushing a float into a pool and her trying to get on that says "Don't worry, just tell her parents you were getting stoned, they'll understand" like it's something that takes a long time to do.

British TV late at night is pretty annoying or to be more precise ITV is annoying in the way that after about midnight they seem to play nothing else other than those patronizing government ads - "Don't drink and drive" , "Don't speed" etc.
They do carry valid messages but they just do it in a rather shite way. The one I hate most is the bloke doing a right turn and him seeing a biker behind him. Now this bloke driving was clearly indicating to go right and when he eventually does the biker rides into his blind spot and crashes into him who is halfway through the maneuver. The advert implies that it was the driver at fault, which is bollocks! as he was indicating clearly - stupid biker.
By the end of the ad, it comes across as if it was the drivers fault.
Pissy government ads.

The commercial for Aero bars with caramel that runs in Canada (or the US, or both. Since I got satilite all that content has mushed together in my mind). I just can't the sound of those ditzy women talking with their mouths cramed with chocolate!

I just want to say that I still hate these things.  They've gotten even worse lately.  They're all like, thousands of people have died from smoking, and it's YOUR FAULT.  Cigarettes killed my grandmother, and if you don't quit smoking, she'll stay dead.

I swear, it's enough to make me want to take up smoking.

I donít know were the favourite adverts thread is but there is one advert that I like at the moment is from the virgin mobile with Christina Aguilera.

She was in her room and was wearing a low top with no sleeves. She sat on this chair next to a window and she was bouncing on it. Then these workmen saw her out the window and it look like she humping somebody they get on their phone and they were saying I got a story to tell

Then the next scene is where Christina went out of the build and saw some fans and cameras screaming at her. It was good.
