That bloody sickening Halifax choir are back with yet another incredibly annoying cover version of a classic.
This time it's "I Want to Know What Love Is".
Absolutely hate their self-satisfied, smug yawping!

The bloody sensodyne ad with that horrible editing technique.

It seems/like/every other word/has been/cut in awkwardly so/she is talking/like this because/she wants/her teeth to be/protected but/also/look nice.

I've heard it's supposed to make an actor reading a monologue sound more natural? It has the exact opposite effect and sets my teeth on edge.

And the last one is for VO5 (I think) hair spray or something or other. Starts off with this girl showing us how to style our hair like she does.. then sings a twee little song, and sounds more like a 6 year old. Didn't know what it was advertising at first - clearly does it's job then.
This one is really irritating.
Her hair looks rubbish at the end of the ad anyway

i'll have to +1 myself on the new moneysupermarket ad .... it was ok in beginning but now its becoming annoying as hell!

I'll also nominate the ads for STV Appeal 2012 .. just annoying ... hurry up this week and be done with this!! - Lorraine Kelly and Michelle McManus drop by on appeal ... like freekin last year!! ... predictable as usual STV!!!

The latest Perle de Lait yoghurt ad is particularly baffling. Eating one appears to sort out her hairdo, and then there's the daft laugh at the end!? Yes they are nice desserts but not exactly mirth-inducing, love, get a grip

'Cause if this is the life,
This is the life,
This is the life,
This is the life,
This is the life,
Then who'd argue?


That is a brilliant song by a brilliant band.

Blame Debenhams for ruining it.

Forgot to add this one -UNDERDOG!

The underdog national accident helpline ad is horrible! The music that cues on in (I get knocked down.. but i get up again.. :|) it is louder than the voice speaking! Wish my mute button worked.

Also, that clay thing in the advert. Is it a bear?

I always wondered that, but then thought being "underdog", that it was a dog. Stupid looking dog though!

Come to think of it, the thing has had a bandaged arm since the advert first started airing (probably back when dinosaurs roamed the Earth...) talk about milking an injury for all it's worth!

Peter Andre on the Gala Bingo ad. Is there nothing that man won't do for publicity?

More twee singing, this time on a Chrome advert

OMG I hate it too, and even more now that they've ripped all the guts out of that beautiful song. If I had an account with Halifax (which thankfully I don't), I'd be shifting it elsewhere just for that abomination.

Got YET ANOTHER ad to add to the list of adverts that are annoying me (Don't worry all I will eventually retreat back to my cave and leave yee in peace )

The Wonga advert. Seriously. The puppets are grotesque!
And correct me if I'm wrong but are they trying to create a love relationship.. for two puppets?
The amount of times I've seen those hag puppets on my screen.. beyond me.

The advert that makes me cringe at the moment is the one for the new Special K biscuits.

When I first saw the advert I thought 'OMG bodyform/allways have gone too far this time'. I know thats gross, but its what stuck in my mind when the jam was dribbling into the word yes.

(apologies if I have put anyone off!)

Babybell... Not only the one with 98% milk (doh, f*ck me its cheese), but the one with the song sung by some strangled kids:

"we don't want to get in line, no we don't want to get in liiine!"

Why the heck not you self important obnoxious brats?
