The Aldi advert where the little girl says she likes "these" premium wipes and her baby brother likes cheaper ones too, or something

The new Sky ad, man they get worse and worse. They are so far up their own asses, it's cringe worthy.

The thing is they are trying to fool us by making out that these actors and tv presenters all love it, WE KNOW THEY ARE READING FROM A SCRIPT SO STOP WITH THE CRAP ACTING.

The RBS advert with Johnny Cash crooning, It's been on all morning and is driving me mad.

Endless Cancer adverts! I hate them for so many reasons - they are either completely grim, depressing or just plain patronising. They never seem to show anyone overcoming their illness, they never offer any hope - more of case of this is what you'll end up like: hairless, frail, with tubes up your nose. I speak as someone who went through this illness in the past and had to switch the channel when these adverts popped up.
Do the makers of these ads never consider how a viewer, who's just been diagnosed with this condition, must feel when these ads are screened?
In addition this, the ads to help starving children in Africa. I may sound heartless and cruel but the real solution to the problem is birth control and an end to the corruption and wars that plague the country. Donating 2 per month is money down the drain.

I hate the VW advert with the guy leering over his daughter from birth, in adulthood as she vrooms of to god knows where i just know the muppet will return having failed in life destined to die alone in the decrepit house her parents bequeathed her to be eaten by her many moggies.

I'm surprised there isn't an entire thread about the sheer awfulness of Fiona Phillips.... Oh yeah, and her postcode lottery ad! Cringeworthy tv at its worst and it seems to be on every ad break (freeview channel Pick).
I love that - "<I can't remember this bit>, we're going to Benidorm!" Presumably you don't win much on the Postcode Lottery.

I'm sure my elder brother wanted to exchange the younger brother for something, and I'm also sure the younger brother wanted to exchange me for something (I couldn't follow them - I'm the youngest child).

As for the topic at hand - any Wonga advert. Especially since they rarely look at each other when in conversation.

I notice they've dropped the "She looks better in a bodybag" one since the Whitney Houston gaffe. I really hate the Wonga ads - I watch NCIS a lot, even if I've seen the episodes a gazillion times before, and the Wonga ads are on at every ad break.

It must be the same baby that does the 'Gangnam Style' dance in the E-Lites advert

I understood her perfectly? She clearly says,

"So iffz yooneed essdracadge - goader catchladydog-go-dog-uk"

A completely sober and succinct message. I shall certainly be using catchladydog if I am ever in need of essdra cadge. Or if I have a female dog that runs away.
Ah, I see....

That reminds me of that Disney advert, where the Dad does the same with his teenage daughter.

I agree. I'm going through it atm and these ads bring you right down. My Mam gets so upset by them too, she turns the tv over when they're on as well.

The new(-ish) Compare The Market advert with Robert Webb as the crazy bloke and the man with the 'tache playing the 'straight man'.

Maybe it's just me but everytime I see it I can't help thinking it was written with both Robert Webb and David Mitchell in mind. For whatever reason, David Mitchell is not in it so they just got someone else to play his part instead?

Anyone else think this?

Oh, and the bloody Sky Go woman. "So I can download movies onto my ipad? And they'll be there on my ipad? And I can watch them on my ipad?"

The 'perl du lait' yoghurt ad with the stupid giggling girl at the end. Why would yogurt help with your morning hairstyling?

I just want to slap her and pour it over her head - see how THAT works...

The moronitude of all the boggle eyed cretins on that advert makes me want to cut out my eyes with rusty scissors.

I cant remember the ad
a little girl points to a bike she wants
a pre teen (12 years old) points to a horse she wants
a teenager points to the car she wants
a young adult points to a house she wants
and then her son points to the ice cream he wants

All while this is going on "Daddy" is there to pay for all her demands

also a red cross ad where its saying if you give us just 1% in your will it could go so far

Most people dont have enough money to get through the week
