It's about getting rid of an old boiler. I think it's supposed to be ironic that its her saying it.

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!
Seen it, brilliant parody "why don't you like my new shirt" lol.

Any advert that features a babyish, bland female singer whining along to an 80's ballad (making it their own!) - one that springs to mind is the herbal tea one.... "if i coooooould, then i wooooooould, i'll go wherewever you will goooooo" urrgggh!

Irn Bru advert with "Fanny." Just really grates on me!

Any mascara or perfume advert too. I love mascara but I don't need someone with fake eyelashes and a professional make-up artist telling me that their mascara works that way. And perfume ads just do not make any sense!!!

Just seen a Greggs advert "Why bother making it yourself when you can..." Basically spend your money on food you don't need that is gonna contribute to making you fat. If you don't like what you're making yourself for lunch then change it.

I'm in a rather bad mood today

The Sky ads with the people amazed at being able to watch movies on their iPads.

All that's missing is the eager clapping of hands, swinging their feet and saying excitedly, 'Shiny!!! Shiny!!!'

Talk about treating your customer base with contempt.

Quite a mixed bag of freaks. I particularly enjoy pointing and laughing at the Chinese bloke whose head is too big for his face.

I treat these adverts with equal contempt to that they treat us with.

And yet they speak about "catching up" on it all either on Sky News or Sky Go .... Sky Go shut up!


The next ad will contempt their viewers with someone from TOWIE

Yeah the McDonald ads are the worst, they're trying to advertise like how they're some pivotal part of our lives.

First it was the "See you Lataaa, what does that even mean?" ad, what do you think it bloody means love. And now it's bonding with your step son over heart disease.

The Quit Smoking ad ..... Ok thank you for the info on cancer etc but I don't smoke and I find the ad a turn off!

I've seen posters for that on the underground - "Think for yourself" etc... ironic that a religious, probably evil, cult is saying "Think for yourself" (!)

The one encouraging healthy eating with the cartoon characters slobbing out on a couch
All that slurping is utterly revolting have to mute it

The one with Patsy Kensit wanting to get her confidence back.......there's a shot of her feet from behind as she's walking in heels that bugs me beyond reason. Wonky, wobbly walking. No idea why it bothers me, but it does.

Yep

Twee singers are a common complaint on this site, and rightly so.

Enough is enough.

Except.....he says he'll have 'three amusing guests...'

So that'll be Millican and two others.
