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've forgotten his name in it. Wasn't his surname Krantz. Nephew of Marlene?

Senokot advert.

Trying to depict constipation as being akin to being in the final stages of terminal cancer, just so people will buy their product. The woman on the advert with constipation looks like she's on the brink of death.

Also, I just saw that Kerry Katona loan shark advert that a poster shared the link for. It does detract credibility from your product if the person promoting it is slurring her words together on the advert.

I guess the ASA are a spent force now.

That Wheatabix with golden syrup advert.

I hate how the kid is such a dick. "You're gonna need it" If I was the dad, I'd probably give him a clip round the ear and tell him to do as he's told.

Also this damn philadelphia advert

I've just seen the Sun advert with that CREEPAZOID toothless little girl and the doll like something out of the sodding Shining.

Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrghhhhhhhhhhh!
So glad someone else has picked up on this. I've just seen it for the second time. The first time I couldn't decide whether it was kind of cute or not. When I heard it no more than 20 minutes later, I voted not. That grating stupid accent. God. Annoying AF.

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.
This. What a carp ad.

The Reed employment one is highly misleading. Reed will not even look at you unless you are qualified or experienced, yet the advert suggests they can find Employment for unqualified inexperienced people Bullshit.

This and their tv & broadband advert. Time to find a new team.

It's not so much what he says but how he says it I think.

Is the Nescafé advert suggesting that the two parents like to somehow incorporate ladders and filler into their lovemaking?

What annoys me about that one is that they've had to superimpose a get out statement that says "Doors do not open automatically" - presumably someone has complained/sought compo?

By far for me, the sun and the little girl "singing" rap! quite awful and I can't understand a word she says.
What is the point of the advert anyway?

Yep I agree I had to put subtitles on for it ..
I tried that and nothing happened - I think even the subtitles were at a loss! Do tell us what the little brat is actually saying/singing/whatever

That stoopid new RAC ad with the kids in their toy cars in the snow.
It's so annoying when they have kids playing adult roles!

Lol havent seen this one yet - I see by their website they offer interest at 2670% representative APR. Sounds like a really ethical business to me, Not surprised KK is pimping it to the poor.

The bloody Trivago advert. It's on nearly EVERY break and it's driving me insane every time it comes on!
"Is there a pool?" Yes, there is and I'm gonna drown you two annoying people in it!

The latest Moneysupermarket ad, with the guy going into the space shuttle, God I could punch him
Yes! Just thinking about it makes my blood boil!! Are people actually paid to come up with this crap?! In any other profession you get fired for producing rubbish.
