The latest O2 advert with a cloying squeaky baby-voice version of "Little Boxes". I imagine the likes of Pete Seeger and Joan Baez will be doing this:

It's "Twee" singing again.

I hate it with a passion.

Both adverts for the Chrysler Ypsilon since it came out.

The first for going on about the car's 'luxury' features despite the fact that it looks like a mouth ulcer and the Americans really don't understand luxury in cars nowadays.

The second for being unbelievably pretentious, for a car that looks like a mouth ulcer.

And yet again, not a TV ad, but a bus ad. The worst bus ad I've ever seen in my life has to go to TryPraying, which I just saw today. Honestly, all it just is is "TryPraying" and the URL. What's so bad about it? It's on the right-hand side of the buses, for crying out loud! That's a lot of blank space for a right-hand side advert! They should have either added some graphics to it, made it a left-hand side advert, or made it a small rear or interior advert.

Hmmm...I really fancy a "proper" holiday in Wales, as advertised. I'm a real fan of mud, driving rain, freezing temperatures, menacing, dull grey skies, slate mines, mists, and the cold, turbulent, frothing sea!

Where do I book?

The adverts for Creme Eggs, with those eggs gleefully and messily committing suicide are sick.

Furthermore:

That Bisto ad. "Propa food, with a propa gravy." ...out of a jar.

"You breathe, you save. You eat, you sleep, you save." Ad infinitum. Utterly tedious.

The "Stay in Britain for your Holiday in 2012" campaign, which seems to be a joint effort by all the GB/NI tourist boards.

They couldn't have done a better job for the likes of Virgin Holidays, TUI or even the ailing Thomas Cook if they had tried, with their portrayal of imprisonment in the land of compulsory fun at street parties.

The ignorant scaremongering in this is appalling - since when did you need "jabs" to go to Med resorts? Sneering at Mediterranean countries in this "they don't make the tea properly, do they" manner went out in the 1980s, surely?

Follow Stephen Fry on Twitter and you'll see how well travelled he is and how much he enjoys his travels...shouldn't have been involved in this garbage.

I've got a new one - there's nothing outrageously bad about it, it's just irritating and boring. Shocking that I don't like it, cos I LOVE cakes!!

Grandma's box. The Mr. Kipling ad.

Have had sex in various locations of the house, don't remember any coffee stopping us getting involved

The other version they do of this advert is where the woman walks into the classroom and takes back the coffee, the problem with that is, schools today are like fort knox, you can't just walk in like that, I used to do repair works too a number of schools and they had high fences and keypad locks to get in, safety of the children is paramount these days, parents don't want their kids to wander out of school and don't want people wandering in to the school either....

When do they say that? I'd be amazed, I've never had jabs going to Europe, possibly Tunisia and Turkey though.
They do that "They make bad tea" thing in the Yorkshire Tea ad talking about America too

That is true tho, all you seem to get in America is Liptons tea bags which is so weak it can't crawl out of the cup. My mother was in a cafe there once and they brought her a pot with one tea bag in, when they asked her if she would like a refill they just refilled the pot with hot water onto the same tea bag.

In the closing part they use the term "no jabs" and they only talk about Mediterranean places in the ad, therefore the implication is there.

Fine if they wish to make a case for UK holidays based on genuine attractions. The fact that they bring in things like the jubilee street parties and the Olympic torch relay is misguided; most people will not have to go on vacation to see the torch, it'll be well within daytrip distance, and the very point of street parties would be that they'd be at home with your neighbours, no?

To have to resort to scaremongering tactics sounds like they have nothing to resort to save for the last refuge of scoundrels

Oh God yes. I saw that before. 'You, but on a really good day.' So drinking this orange liquid makes you dance on a log with two hilbillies

I saw this today and I was thinking, Stephen Fry, you really shouldn't have done that advert with your well known love of travelling, Wasn't he recently in a programme about crossing America

BT Winter Deals - Why is this still on?! IT'S NOT WINTER!!

Change 4 Life - Goes on for far too long. Yes, I know we shouldn't drink too many glasses of alcohol but did you really have to make the ad last an ENTIRE MINUTE?!
