Dunno if it's a regional ad. but the 'Cheeky Bingo' ad. in the mornings.

One very weird, totally over made-up bird grimacing at the camera followed by 'Oooh! Cheeky bum-bum!'

I suppose it will resonate with the chavs who loved the Lynx one a few years ago:

'Boom shakka wah-wah!'

The "oo" in mood is much longer than that in hood. If you try saying them the same one is going to sound ridiculous.
For the last flippin time, the "oo" in words such as "good" and "food" (and also mood/hood for that matter) sound exactly the same in most Scottish accents (if not all). You are clearly not familiar enough with this and trust me, for those of us who know how to speak English, we do not sound ridiculous, just because we happen to speak with a different accent to you.

John Hannah IS speaking English, good DOES rhyme with food, He is not saying Gud or Fud or anything else.

Give me strength.

Yep, I think they all rhyme as well, and I'm from the West of Scotland.

I don't hear a difference in the words either and I'm from Ayrshire. None of my English friends or neighbours have complained about the ad either and can understand it perfectly well. I don't realkly get why it's such an issue for some people considering I can understand very strong regional English accents no problem.

Well pardon me, but if you make 'mood' and 'hood' rhyme, you are talking out yer backside. And kindly explain why Scottish football commentators always go on about "fool backs", when there's not an 'oo' in sight. Probably explains a lack of success recently.

If any foreign accented English was deemed to be the correct form, ve vood haf to start talking like zis.

I bet we don't see all the smug "Holidays at Home" luvvies making a new version of the ad, complete with long queues and empty pumps at petrol stations to add to their street parties and xenophobic scaremongering.

Totally sad!

Any M&S advert with that bloke who does the voice-over. Every word which ends in "s" has a whistle to it. "Hot cross buns-sss, filled with juicy cherries-sss."

'Let's have a proper brew'... Oh god SHUT UP!! It's not crack cocaine, just tea.

He says it about 5 times as well - did you know it's a proper brew by the way??

I am sure I am not the only one here who would say that the Scottish accent is not considered "foreign" so please stop talking out of your backside.

That bloody Ramsdens Gold one is annoying. So cheap, tacky and forced fake acting. The only part i like is when the elder lady goes "to Caardiff!"

Rotten film in 2D, rotten film in 3D.

I'm sure the poor wretches who drowned on the Titanic had it all in 3D, surround-sound and smell-o-vision.

I hate this current media obsession with a terrible tragedy in which many people died a horrible death. Just because it happened a 100 years ago doesn't make it any more acceptable - it still smacks of money-making grave robbery.

/rant over

Oh right, I only watch the BBC. I'd forgotten about the others.

She's currently in those pre-Coronation street furniture ads with her bizarre mate and subservient husband - knock yourself out! x
