the EDF energy that has changed its song to Shaggy and some song about going "BRRRRR" I don't know why they changed it, the original song fitted beautifully.

The virgin ad with the kids with superpowers. If I had superpowers I'd be a bit disappointed if I ended up working as a glorified waitress on a plane for a company that makes me wear hideous red lipstick.

Yoplait with added Vitamin D (the vitamin du jour).

Blonde airhead babbling about her mum's bad leg... "I thought calcium was enough", then she finds out vitamin D helps calcium absorption...

"It really made me think..."

*stares confusedly at camera as though this is the first time she's ever had to use her brain*

Then she shoves a spoonful of the gloop in her gob and smiles in the smug manner that all yoghurt-eaters in ads are required to BY LAW.

Ive seen the 5colors advert a lot lately and havent a clue what its trying to advertise. Curiosity got the better of me so i googled them and went to the website shown on the advert.

All it is is a demo website where a lot is written in latin and telling you to insert text here. Ie its an unfinished website with a link to a model page but that is also unfinished.

What the hell is it advertising?

'John' on the eharmony ad who can't talk without waving his arms about. Is that for the benefit of deaf viewers?
This ad follows the annoying trend of a lot of ads with wobbly cameras changing angle every few seconds. Sensodyne toothpaste are the worst culprits of this, they give me motion sickness!

Really? I must have been redirected to a different site! Shall try again.

I originally thought it was hair dye until i realised 5 colours isnt anything to brag about since most dyes have hundreds of shades!

Agree with this. In an effort to "refresh" the ad, they've rendered it awful.

What's the new ad with the quite frankly demonic twin boys advertising? They disturbed me so much I can't actually remember what the product is.

I totally agree and you know who is worst? Perle du Lait. Women eating yoghurt 'what's her secret'? She's eating Perle du Lait! Pleasure makes you beautiful *silly laugh*. What on earth is that about? It's only YOGHURT for heavens sake

I've already said, who is this blonde to tell us what to eat?

I detest this ad too!

It's like a blatant misguided attempt at subliminal advertising if the script were pitched by Homer Simpson working for Sterling Cooper.

Then the pouting "you should try it too" bit at the end. No ... I.... shouldn't. Epic brainwash fail.

Also, I'm sure it's been mentioned on here countless times but The Money Shop advert with the obese west country chav woman.

"..and I was like, oh no what are we gonna do?"

Buy less cakes and crisps would be my response.

Her final words in the ad:

"Thank you Money Shop, that's all I can say."

Is the most close to accurate statement she makes in the entire advert. I'd imagine her vocabulary doesn't stretch to many more words than that.

Haha. Although more like the twins from The Shining! "Come play with us..."
You could tell the Dad in that ad is actually terrified of them.

Yup. And Emmerdale. He's obviously gone up in the world!

Thanks! I've never watched Emmerdale so didn't know he was in it. I'm thinking the name Lachlan for his Neighbours character?

I have just seen this and yes it is annoying. The part at the end when they smell alcohol on the dad and do the universal sign language for 'pint' Annoyed me to no end, it prompted me to start a thread actually: http://forums.digitalspy.co.uk/showt...1#post63536181
