The holiday one with Jim Hensons nasal warbling of 'Happy Feet' from The Muppets.
I have to switch the sound off when that annoying advert comes on.

I hate the advert for shampoo or hair dye or whatever it is where the smug t*at gives us a list of what he and his wife have been through including "Two newborns"
NEWBORNS ??
Do you mean BABIES ?
Who says "NEWBORNS" FFS ??
God yes, that totally threw me the first time I heard him say that!
Who write these ad scripts?! Certainly not someone with children (Semi-news, in their parlance).

OMG Don't watch the 'Botched Up Bodies' advert on Channel 5 if you are eating.

They showed someone squeezing puss out of a sore, I was eating butter on toast at the time.

The jobsite ones with Max what's his face. So patronising and grr.

The Microsoft one

The Diet Chef one. I'd hate to think how much that would cost, but considering the lass they're using to front the advert seems to be in the gossip rags going on about her weight troubles an awful lot, I'm not convinced she's the right person for the message they're trying to convey.

I haven't been unlucky enough to see the Sun or Magnet adverts yet. I'm sure I'll be back on here as soon as I do by the sounds of how bad they are.

It's been months but the Mcdonald advert is now back on our screens again.

"How would like to be more than friends?

"He text me back saying see you later"

"SEE YOU LATER?!"

"What does that even mean?"

The Finish advert trying to show off about how cheap their dishwashers are.

'400?!

200?!

Less than 200?!

That's right, 199!"

It doesn't really work.

Is that where the hearse stops on a bridge and the fishermen (fisherpeople?) stand up to show their respect for their departed friend? If they really cared, they'd be at the bleddy service...

Haha yes!

It reminds me of that Wickes advert with the pencil. 1.45? [CROSSED OUT] "Now only 1.39!!!"

I am sick of the Dolmio advert. Boring boring lasagne AGAIN. Is that all you can make with it? Surely they could come up with something else?

Yes , banging on about the starving farmers in Zimbabwe.
These being the people that Mugabe handed over the successful rural farms, after he had violently evicted the previous farmers (who happened to be white) to his supporters who knew nothing about farming, had no seed to grow, and no tools to farm the land.
Result was famine in about 2 years flat.

There was an excellent report on Newsnight about the former Zimbabwean (white) farmers being welcomed with open arms in other African countries, (Kenya, Nigeria Botswana etc) as they knowledgable and experienced so are able to farm the land and grow food successfully, which feeds the people.

This would be like Shelter asking us to give money to help a homeless guy, who is only homeless because he bet his entire house on the 3.30 at Kempton Park.
But why didn't these white farmers in all their many years in Zimbabwe teach the black people to farm their own land and pass on their expertise to the indigenous population? Yes they are being welcomed in other African areas - as teachers, not land grabbers.
