I hate it when I'm watching TV, when a male member of the family walks in, and then an advert for female sanitation comes on. I feel embarressed but they don't really care!

I hate those Evian adverts with those babies in the water and the "Bye bye Baby" music. /me shudders. Its nauseating.

^^I find it embaressing when there's like, nudity or something like that (of females) on TV and Im watching with my family. I swear they all look at me to see how I react. They must think Im gay because i always pretend like Im not interested and stuff  laff.

In fact I just hate the kind of state we are with Compensation (in Britain at least - also I presume, because all the bloody adverts)

Eg.
"Have you bumped into a lampost? You can claim compensation!"
"Have you blatedly ignored all the 'warning: slippery floor' signs and slipped over because these signs weren't shoved in your face so you couldn't possibly miss them? You can also claim compensation!"
"Have you had warning signs shoved in your face so you couldn't possibly miss them? You can claim compensation too!(!!!)"
-S-T-O-P- -A-N-N-O-Y-I-N-G- -M-E- -A-N-D- -G-O- -A-W-A-Y-!   up yours

Although I did like one from a car compensation company that was taking the piss out of the other ones.
"Mrs *somebody* tripped over a slap that sticked out in the pavement. She called *us* for compensation and *we* said: "Look where you're going!!!" Besides *we* only deal in -c-a-r- -i-n-s-u-r-a-n-c-e- anyway."

Phrases in *here* stand for names I have since forgotten.


I totally agree 110000000000000%, and thats just ridiculous. At work we have to be so careful because some lowlife jerk can come in, find a fault and claim thousnads of compensation. Indeed there are stories about this happeneing. A man at my Mum's work attempted to get my Mum fired unless he got some compensation because she picked up a forged note. It's a long story but my mum was 0% to blame and he was just a total wanker!!!!!!

Does anyone remember the Claims Direct advert with Declan Holland (I think that was his name). It was a little kid who had an accident in a playground. The advert's message was basically: "My poor little boy had an accident in a council playground. We didn't want this to happen to any other poor little children and so we called Claims Direct and sued the pants out of the council so they didn't have any money left to fix the dodgy swing, but I managed to buy a new kitchen with my money because I am a conceited bitch". KILL IT KILL IT KILL IT!!!!!  mad   mad   up yours
I think they stopped airing it because too many people were just taking the piss. Indeed when a compensation advert comes on the TV me, my dad and my mum have a good laugh and swear at the TV. Surprisingly enjoyable. (droney voice) "I was carrying a bucket of hot tar at work and I tripped over this huge piece of wood, er, yeah a door, that's the thing. I sued my workplace and got 217million pounds in compensation so I could go and buy a new car" AAAAAAAAARRRRRRRGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!   up yours  :mad

I also agree that when my dad comes in the room and an advert for tampons come on the TV it is very mebarrassing. He hates adverts like that, though I'm not sure why. No-one else cares.

Archie2K, if you don't watch it already, you might love South Park, if only for their occasional commercial parodies, such as Cheech & Chong's "Cherokee Hair Tampons" ("Let the wonders and the mysteries of our people, like, change the way you think about tampons!") and litigation lawyers ([jingle] "Kids picking on you? Well, don't be sad! Just sue their asses with Kyle's Dad!")   laff

Plug: Shannon Wheeler's Too Much Coffee Man: Amusing Musings gives a detailed account of the "Great Coffee Lawsuit," with a lot of details that generally didn't get reported because they didn't fit the story's designated "spin." You might be surprised. The rest of Wheeler's book is less "political," but still damned funny and insightful, and at times deeply unsettling. There's also the Too Much Coffee Man weekly strip.

Any Raymour and Flannigan commercial makes me want to break the TV

That Levi's commercial with the singing belly buttons haunts me to this day.

Any commercial where people talk really loud and really fast automatically make me not want to buy the product.  I guess car salesmen are the worst with this.

Fosters ads rule!! Remember the Earthquake one recently? Where the guy has his apartment transfered from a rick guys apartment, to a Toilet, next to a chair, next to a fridge of Fosters, and a TV!! Then when an Earthquake threatens, the person changing the mans house gives him a crash helmet so he can still sit there and enjoy his luxury!!  big grin

LOL, I love that advert with the robot. Has anyone else seen that beer advert where the woman pours beer all around the house and her boyfreind licks all the beer off the floor, she pours it around the entire house and when hes finished cleaning the house by licking it all she goes to the bedroom and tries pouring beer on herself, but by then all the beer has finished.   laff

And you just know that if Barney just ASKED, Fred would be happy to share the stuff with him. Barney makes the Sugar Bear look like Albert Schweitzer.


The US has three all-Spanish channels run by major networks, and they run their own Spanish versions of major products including breakfast cereals. What's weird is that these commercials are more family-oriented than kid-oriented. What I mean is that the whole theme is lost in the Spanish commercials. For instance, Barney doesn't chase Fred for the cereal. Instead, you have the whole Flinstone family is in a live-action scene telling a real family how nutritious the cereal is! Ditto with other mascots. You see Lucky explaining the vitamins, etc. for the whole commercial instead of seeing him chased by kids.

I hate those Wendy's commercials that have the kids ditch the grown-ups because their food is sloppy. "GROWN-UP ALERT!" That sickens me.

And the car commercial (I think Mazda) where a kid says "They say the car has powers magical"  puke

Ever see those Kraft Singles commercials with "Red n' Ned"? They're pretty standard... Red makes a grilled cheese sandwich, Ned tries to steal it... but the creepy thing is: Red and Ned HAVE NO MOUTHS! NOT EVEN WHEN THEY'RE EATING!

That's just CREEPY.

I don't remember who it was who said this, but a PEELer remarked about how that beer ad where the man licks the house clean would be seen as grossly sexist if the sexes were reversed.

Also, Just Chris, I can't stand adverts where kids are urged to ditch their grown-ups. Its just stupid. Like saying to an adult, "You hate your job right? Well quit!".

Those late night ads after the TV3 schedule and the shopping channel or whatever the hell its called comes on.
The worst ones are for the exercise machines that have all these clearly obvious bodybuilders on them (at least they have chicks in tight spandex),
or the cooking/kitchen gizmos ones, especially the one with the annoying stubby guy who wears the horrible blue shirt and stupid red bowtie, GRRRRRR  mad

Another one is for a yoghurt thing from Danone or whatever, and the kids are shown drinking it, except the frickin bottle in their hands is CGI!! And bad CGI too, too make the bottle look bigger I think. Don't see why they didn't just use the product they try to sell.
All those accident claims ones piss me off too.

I just don't understand the advert with the police car and the rabbit in the back. Are they arresting the rabbit because it can talk? Because that would just be harsh. Typical MET.

I don't like the BT Open world advert with the beachball turning into a computer because I wan't one! I could use PEEL whenever I wanted because the beachball deflates! It could also make sports events a lot more interesting....

Haha yeah. There's some liquor ad that I occassionally see on TV, where some hip urban recording artists are filming a rap video, and they spot two white guys dancing in the background, and they get mad.

Can you imagine the public outrage if it were the other way around? A bunch of rich white snobs are having a fancy ball, and then they all balk at the appearance of a black person in the crowd.

I'd love to see an ad executive with the balls to put that on the air.

Heh, I know that guy. You'll be watching TV, and you'll hear "Jack Johnson SAYS he's tough on crime. But what he doesn't want you to know is that two years ago, he was responsible for the murder of seventeen teenagers at Camp Crystal Lake. Paid for by the committee to elect John Jackson."

Then, two commercials later:

"John Jackson SAYS he's a champion of family values. But the facts show that's he's clearly the Prince of Darkness himself, come to destroy civilization in a fiery cataclysm. Paid for by Friends of Jack Johnson"

I'm also getting really tired of the "Can you hear me now? Good." guy. I saw it on Telemundo yesterday. "Escuchas? Bien."

Some of the worst commercials I have ever seen: Lion, those caramel - rice krispie candybars.

In one of them, a guy is chased by dobermans. He runs into a cave, and he 's cornered.  But all of a sudden, the dobermans see the Lion bar lying on the ground.  The image of the Lion on the wrapper scares the dogs, and they back off, walking backwards on their behind legs, while they 're whistling.

Another one from the same series: Tarantula's who jump out of a plane after seeing a Lion candybar.

Heh, you made me remember the SNL skit where a guy was forced to repeat the cue-cards for an erectile disfunction ad. Announcer voice: "This is John (something like that). He suffers from erectile disfunction. He can't even have adequate sex anymore. I mean, it's like a limp noodle, I'm talking about 'bbbwoooop'! His last girlfriend was Jenny, he live in 6022 Oak Lane..."It turns out the ad was really for a candy. Announcer voice: "When you're screwed like him, have a Tootsie Roll!"

I hate it when I'm eating dinner in front of the TV, and all of a sudden, an ad pops up telling you about genital herpes, constipation, vaginal funguses, etc. and with the digusting side effects for a laxative like oily discharges, anal leakage and bloody bursts while here I am eating my laxative, er, soup...

Car ads mostly get me going, but I really hate the one with the driver adding stupid tyre screeching sound effects. It just grates.Also, the boomerang channel has an advert for a bunch of pious,happy clappy church goers singing bland awful songs on a load of cds.

Nah, that's the National Canine Defence League I think - but I have to agree, the adverts are most irritating.
