Go Compare drives me nuts - I feel like smashing my telly up every time it comes on - sooo annoying.

It's on all the bleedin' time too.

I'd gladly throttle that bloke & his daft tash.

He's very probably destroyed any credibility he had as a professional opera singer as a result of these ads.

There's a new ad - I think it's for tea,not sure which one - with the same wishy washy illustrations of a wishy washy girl in the wishy washy countryside, with some girl with a wishy washy voice covering yet another classic song. A follow up to the "wherever you will go" wishy washy cover.

HATE it !!

xx
I can't stand the twee, baby-voice covers. They must be stopped!

I'm finding the go compare advert annoying. They seem to have nicked the three little pigs idea from the Guardian newspaper advert, but not in the same league - I think that's the only advert on telly I actually like

I found another I hate - I think it's for insurance, direct line and that ilk. Some man calls a bloke about a price or quote or something and then you see white van man style personality going 'Steeeeeevvvvveeeee' and generally behaving like a d*ck. I nearly put my foot through the telly.

Halifax have yet again ruined another great song WHY the hell have they covered that song? just why it's bad enough that they spoiled two songs just how many are they set to cover? terrible adverts!
I absolutely HATE those Halifax ads with that cap doffing, bloody awful choir.
They are by far my most despised ads at the moment and can't wait for them to stop!

On the flipside, I love the Paddy Power "hunting chavs" ad.

I agree: can't stand Halifax ads, Churchill, Go Compare, .......

AND it should be illegal to use decent songs on crap adverts.

I'd just like to bring to everyone's attention that Wynne Evans (the Go Compare man) has an album out. With track 8, entitled "Over There", you can enjoy the spirit of the Go Compare ads whenever you like without having to wait for an advert break. Just 6.99 with free delivery. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Song-My-Hear...1249278&sr=8-1

I finally gave in and called Virgin Media, I know, it was a weak moment during the day , anyway I found I can't have their broadband offer as I'm not in a cabled area , that was a waste of time, just glad it was a free call I suppose!

That's enough poo with blood in it.

Surely it's bad enough if you might have bowel cancer without being spoken to like a 5 year old too.

What next though? "Accidentally severed an artery while shaving? Then call an ambulance". "Fallen over, bone sticking out of leg, then go to hospital".

Dave's non-stop plugging of 'Suits'
If you have to 'convince' people how great it is, once every 10 mins, 24/7, it's probably not all that!

Quite but then she is Mick Jaggers daughter so is automatically perceived as beautiful by the industry
I don't think she's ugly at all in fact she looks like a young Brigette Bardot.
