I'm sorry if this doesn't count but the trail for the new series of Embarasing Bodies made me physically retch. I feel for the guy, it must be awful having a huge hole in your face, but I cannot believe they're showing it, and advertising it!!!!!

Channel 4's trailer for 'Obsessive Compulsive Cleaners.' We get it, it's a new programme but FFS, stop shoving it in my face every 15 minutes! Every time I hear that woman go '9 10 9 10 9 10 9 10' my urge to kick the TV increases!

The O2 one about Beyoncé tickets annoys me. I think it's the weird music and the expectation that we're all going to think she looks stunning as she walks out.

Can't stand it either. Hardly an original concept for an advert (in fact, a painfully obvious one) but then Beyonce was never one for originality

What's as annoying is hearing Ned Stark from Game Of Thrones say "TEXT BEYONCE" at the end.

Any advert that trys so hard to be sexy... We got sexy shampoo, sexy toothpaste etc and the perfume adverts are getting ridicjlous ... All wriggling round on beds and writhing ... Whats the deal with that. A paticullary bad one was Brad Pitts perfume advert with that long winded rubbish story .... Its so over the top nowadays. .... Sorry about my spelling

No idea. I don't think they did on the show either

The only one that comes close in England is "You buy one you get one free!!!"

Just seen a cringe worthy one from McDonalds.

Basically a mum says to her teenage son that her new lover will be moving in, the kid is frosty to him and ignores his attempts at 'bonding' until he invites him to McDonalds, and the kid offers him a gurkhin out of his burger.

the advert ends with the line 'we all have McDonalds in common' (puke!)

Haha brilliant! Charlie Brookers Weekly Wipe tonight laid into the Cal-In yoghurt advert!

Not much different to the way I laid into it on this very thread.

She couldn't act her way out of a paper bag. Shame for the yoghurt manufacturers who were hoping to hoodwink idiots into buying it with their scare tactics.

I hope her mother who fell and broke her hip isn't so lucky next time and perhaps cracks her head on the kitchen worktop on the way down. This is perfectly fine for me to wish upon her, as of course, she doesn't exist.
It certainly deserves all it gets.

Whenever it is on I end up yelling "Who the hell do you think you are?!" at the telly. Makes me livid.

For all those who are not a fan of the pretentious perfume ads, you might like the advert for Alexander Armstrong's Big Ask (a new show starting on Dave). I'll say no more!
