Part 7? Not bad.

Also, can I (re-)nominate the Confused adverts. How can it be that they're so much louder than not just any programme, but any other advert?

And isn't there a law against adverts being so loud?
Apparently the adverts can be as loud as the loudest part of the preceding show. But I agree they do seem way too loud.

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

The one with the woman pulling different faces? I want to make love with her hehe.
She's currently in those pre-Coronation street furniture ads with her bizarre mate and subservient husband - knock yourself out! x

That isn't Anna Crilly from the Harvey's advert in the cheeky bum-bum advert although I have to agree it's bl**dy awful in fact they both are

I notice the "Wittle Boxes On The Hillside" ad is now done by an equally annoying male voice.

I hate the way both singers pronounce the word "same"

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
I noticed on the trailers they say "The most beloved film in history" or something like that, what are those claims based on? Its no longer the most succesful film (financially) at the Worldwide or USA BO.

THAT coca-cola advert hyping up the 2012 Olympics, and some 'gangstaaar' at the end going "move to the beat." Makes me want to physically kick the TV in.

So it's not just a cinema-exclusive advert...

Not really annoying just confusing is the Holiday Inn one.
I guess they were desperate to get an Olympian but why choose a not very well known BMXer?

Glade Discreet

Two stylist 30 something women walk into a house where the lobby is larger than most people's houses, have a badly dubbed conversation with each other and the visitor pulls a plastic thing that dispenses factory produced scent out of her handbag. The house must cost several million and they can't afford flowers?

I hate adverts that are completely milking the olympics!!!!

The cadbury one says "official treat provider of the olympic games !

WTF does that even mean!?! - Is there going to be a cadbury rep standing at the podium 'providing treats' ?

There is a pattern of strangely menacing animate things. The polar bear selling fish fingers, the hotel with a teddy bear and to a lesser degree the M&Ms.

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.
Oh yes it is Or soon will be, you can't have it both ways

Yet another insular Londoner who thinks the world ends at the Watford gap!
I'm in London. I'm from Sunderland. You should hear some of the vowels up there.

Normally? How do you pronounce it?



The one that annoys me is the new Sony Xperia S advert with the little kid talking about there being robots inside it. Go find a toy to advertise little kid, phones are for adults!


Edit: After reading back a few pages, that "Blood in the poo" one annoys me too! I mean seriously, poo? Wtf? Either be normal and say shit or be medical and say stool, feces or excrement.

Beep - do you know where my brother is?
Just text him you lazy ****!

I know this is just a cinema ad but in the one with all those movie headlines - are they actually real?
For example Beetlejuice 2 is "In development" according to IMDB.

The new iPad. Trade in last weeks ipad and buy this weeks model so you can watch the same bad quality Youtube videos on the best screen ever until we bring out a better one next week.

I've had the TV on for about an hour and a half, and ITV1 have shown the blood in your poo ad at least three times! I couldn't believe it.
