another one shown on STV ..... Debt Advisory Scotland ..... advertise a Glasgow number (0141) .... we will do this and that .... be good if you done than the ad a bit more professional ... looks like an ad done by 5 year olds!
What's wrong with advertising a Glasgow number? Better than a chargeable nasty starting 084/7.

I can't find a rant about it on here - but the Maybelline (or however it's spelt) with their super-duper mascara that now makes your eyes look even bigger (or something) modeled for you by their super-duper models and the music in the back ground is sharp dressed man by ZZ top. Like the tune, but who thought that was a good idea?

I saw the Morrissons ad with Ant and Dec last night - AAARGHHH!
And there was another twee version of a song on an ad, but I cant remember what it was

The Nokia Lumia advert with those stupid people kissing their phones. Every time I see that, I want to punch those idiots in the face!

I dont like the advert for Macmilan nurses were they show people and children falling and saying how many will get cancer in a year. We lost my mother in law to cancer last february and she had macmillan nurses visiting . I am not saying they shouldnt be brought to the nations attention but show them in a different way rather than the present one .

The new McDonald advert that features a young step father/partner trying to bond with the young boy.

Boy is not impressed with sport bonding via football or culture bonding through the vinyl record collection but is impressed with a burger offering, just incredibly offensive.

It's not the ungratefulness - though that is grating, its MCD's thought process that thinks it can get away with such a shallow depiction of human bonding.

Oh I don't look at it that way. I'm just annoyed by the way the kid only starts to like his step dad the minute he takes him to McDonalds, that's the kind of attitude you'd expect from a toddler not a teenager.

On a side note, that Leerdammer advert looks like an unfunny, low brow and less-creative-with-various-guises version of this Family Guy gag.

I feel sorry for the boy, he's lost his real dad, probably through divorce, and his mums new boyfriend is trying to take over.

It also brings back painful memories of loved ones we have lost to cancer , its far too upsetting in the way its put out .

You beat me to it. I lost my mum to it in 1996 and she was cared for by Macmillan. My problem with this ad is it depicts the delivering of the news of cancer being received in such horror that the person collapses.

On one hand ads like Cancer Research try to paint an upbeat picture, that cancer survival rates are on the up, and that cancer is not a definite death sentence, then we see ads like this that are almost trying to paint the exact opposite picture.

Some may argue the shock tactics are necessary but I would argue that this may be more likely to alienate people from the cause.

I believe many people living with cancer, in remission, and people like me and my family who live in its shadow, not to mention children that are watching, will find these images both troubling and demoralising.

People need to be made aware of the good work Macmillan do, but in my opinion this is not the way to do it.

It's almost as if the advert is trying to present a McDonalds meal as something that can bring people together and change entire relationships, in order to make it seem more appealing to the customer.....

The Sky ad with Robert Lindsay and Ruth Jones bugs me, with it's dialogue, but I can't help but watch, as Robert Lindsay has always been - and still is now with that beard - the spitting image of my Dad!
