Blindingly obvious point to make I know, but everyone has correctly identified what the adverts are for - Galaxy, KFC, Comfort, etc., so- job done as far as the advertisers are concerned!
I agree. Love or Hate an ad, if you're talking about a brand the advertisers have suceeded.

They've only succeeded if people buy the products or services advertised. Some of these adverts are so annoying that some people might deliberately not bother

- Madness singing "Baggy Trousers" very slowly.

- "That's logistics!"

- Giant head of Ray Winstone appears to offer people the latest odds on football and apparently to force football fans to say hello to him.

- Any commercial encouraging people to buy Steps "greatest" hits

- The Direct Line commercials where the salesman is trying to get two incredibly weird and annoying people to buy things.

Does anyone know who the actress is in that Boots (I think) advert. You know, the one who laughs at all the medicine in the cupboard. Irritating woman!
Yes! Not by name, but I do recognise her. She's been in a few things. Peep Show and the IT Crowd that I remember. She's got a monopoly on the "uncomfortable jokey type" market.

Bit of creative googling has led me to "Catherine Shepherd."
She's lovely and if I had my way a possible future Mrs Jab!

ahem....

Argh - you're absolutely right! My bad. They've got very similar acting styles, and their faces aren't miles off, either.

Oh for crying out loud. I was listening to Planet Rock today and what do I hear? Those stupid annoying MEERKATS!! When will they ever drop this format?!

UPS - I'm sick of the bleedin' Olympics and I HATE the "That's Logistics" song used in this ad!

I checked into this thread because I knew people would have identified this ad as being particularly loathsome.

Not only does it have the most irritating woman singing the lines (her saccharine sweet high-pitched voice makes me shudder) but it manages to also chuck in the Olympics for good measure, for no fathomable reason other than they're a sponsor and therefore now think the time is right to shove it down our throats.

"When the Olympians come to play on the Thames that's logistics"... Erm, is it really? can't see how.

I'm using FedEx next time. :

I hate that bloody OOPS MY HEART WENT OOPS advert where the young lady with the tiny knickers gets her dress stuck in the lift and leaves her handbag wide open to show her Tena Lady pads and then has a good old giggle about it in her office.

Anyone else heard the old Haribo Super mix jingle on the Radio? Can't believe they're still trying to get their moneys worth out of it!

I don't mind that one - well not yet, 50 views on I might. I quite like the fact they're not worried about using humour, rather than assuming people will avoid Aldi in case perves shop there.
- Madness singing "Baggy Trousers" very slowly.
I don't like that one either - but I love the slowed down Ace of Spades.

- Any commercial encouraging people to buy Steps "greatest" hits
There is such a thing?!

This advert with the two women who move the two guys together then chuckle like pubescent school girls is really starting to grind on me now.

Tena Lady
I have to turn the TV over when this stinking pile of crap comes on as my recoil is so strong I usually end up pushing the sofa through the wall.

Everything about this advert is vile; the setup, the not so bright piss pants getting her dress stuck in the lift, the god awful moment she tells her mate over the water cooler in such a casual way that leads me to think every time she pisses herself in public she has to tell her mate as she gets some kind of sexual kick off it

Isn't there something substantially wrong (mentally) with someone who walks around pissing themselves in public then laughs about it over the office water cooler with their mates?

McDonalds
HATE HATE HATE the singing guy and want to murder him, violently. Why must we see this nearly every single set of adverts!

Match.com
Again with the bloody singing, this advert is just insufferable, I want to snatch that guitar off him and smash it over is head again and again until we are both crying.

Activa
Oh no! another new advert with that smug twunt now banging on about winter and TLC.... here love, just have a good shite and don't bother with that overpriced crap Can they make this woman any more smug looking if they tried? I'd personally like to drown her in Activia.

Very.co.uk
"feels very studio 54" claims her off x-factor, then she claims "feels good to be bad" - for some reason this advert just repulses me.

Do you think Activia twunk (Martine) has visited the same plastic shop as Tulisa Constantdrivel (XFactor) for her teeth? Hideous

Girl on the platform Smiles.... [No, she doesn't. Shut the F&^K up.)

I just invented the wheel! I just invented Car insurance..GO COMPAAAR- [f&6k. OFF.]

Try new Haribo Supermix! Soft, Smooth and Squidgy! [Reminds me of my boyfriends anatomy more than a sweet to be honest..]

The McDonalds singing man can also jump off a bridge. RAGE!

OK, I looked up the Very.co.uk advert on Youtube and oh my God, each second made me want to punch her in the face more and more!

I rarely get mad at adverts, I just ignore them. The one exception is that bloody awful Heinz advert with people whistling at their soup. It drives me up the bloody wall! And I just don't 'get' it

The one that completely makes me CRINGE at the moment is the one Scarlett Johansson is doing for Dolce & Gabbana The One perfume.

"I do all my own stunts... even lovemaking"

Two ads I hate (sorry if these have been mentioned before).

The rice crispy one where the kids are making their mummy's face out of rice crispies. The bit where the mother goes "So I have a big red nose do I?", and the daughter goes "yes, you've walked into a lamp post!". WTF?!? If my daughter said that to me I'd get her some serious psychological help. Or maybe thats what the mother tells the kids after father has been a bit too handy...

The Wonga one with those puppets. They're just creepy and actually gave me a nightmare a week or two ago. I wouldn't mind knowing what the record is the grandad one puts on though cos I do like that tune.
