Strong contender for most irritating ad of 2013!

Scoundreldays 04-01-2013 20:19

Wasn't she in that other advert. I forget which one but at the end she sang 'My lovely, lovely Mother' ?

I can hardly understand any of it. Needs subtitles.

Can you transcribe the song for us?

January sucks, it's dark, miserable and you've spent all your money on plastic stuff you'll never play with. But smile through the pain, the snotty noses and the rain. Give it some bass and some rock guitars and ditch you're life's half empty glass - let's kick this up it's great big hairy bum.

You can't afford a takeaway!?!? It's hydrogen till payday, let's focus on the things that make life fun! Pretty boybands, silly puns, funny cats and 2 for 1's and let's kick January where there ain't no sun,

Sing January's dodgy, you're feeling skint and podgy so smile and watch the months whizz past. Forget the bills and hips that kills and let's just have a laugh 'cos together we're gonna kick Januareeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee's bottom!

bgtension 04-01-2013 21:39

Had to turn this off, got no idea what this was supposed to be advertising.

ChynaS 04-01-2013 21:44

Dreadful advert, cant understand a word the kid says. Pointless.

BellaRosa 04-01-2013 22:59

What the heck did she say :confused: Didn't understand any of that and what a spoilt brat :mad:

But then this is the Sun comic :yawn:

You should be a speech therapist! I couldn't understand a word of it apart from the whiny "you can't afford a takeaway"

She's missing her front teeth, it's not a speech impediment :D :D

I'm not particularly maternal but I don't find her annoying, which isn't like me as I find most kids irritating :D

goonernatalie 19-01-2013 14:40

I think that the advert is among the worse ever

Same here! I find most kids featured in ads irritating and usually reach for the mute button or switch over, but there is something about this kid that is quite endearing even with all the gibberish she's coming out with. :D

It's kids in general I find irritating, not just ones in adverts :D But this poor little kid's getting a lot of stick, bless her. There are worse adverts on tv, but obviously others don't think so :D

LesterForbes 19-01-2013 16:37

unless they are giving away non sensational facts then I dont wanna know!

wolfticket 19-01-2013 17:02

Annoying advert, but hardly the kid's fault. Blame the advertising "creative" or the parents :)

The 'can't afford a takeaway' bit is the most disturbing, when she screws her face up close up to the camera. :eek:

The Sun obviously know their market if they think people really can't afford a takeaway all January!

tinkie 19-01-2013 17:10

Trust me, it has to be bad if my husband has noticed it and commented on it

2shy2007 19-01-2013 17:13

They seem to have purposely made the child look as awful as they could, told her to dance like Frankensteins monster( or perhaps she does that naturally!) what on earth possessed them to emply her?? poor kid I feel sorry for her, its not her fault they have made her look and act like that.

Regis Magnae 19-01-2013 23:35

Those Sun adverts with children's voices are annoying.

There's an ad for vitamins (I think) for children that has a similar child-like voice. Seeing as a child isn't going to want vitamins or be able to purchase them, I think it is silly to use child-like voice for the ad.

I agree, that post is at best unfunny and at worst disturbing.

brewer480 20-01-2013 08:23

Ok, now I have read what the girl is trying to say... What were they thinking, it has absolutely nothing to do with the sun, more like a rubbish advert for the month of January.

I'm pissed off, my birthday's on January so therefore it is the best month of the year, and I will certainly be having a kebab on my birthday!!!

I hate pointless adverts that have nothing to do with what they are trying to sell!
