The Money Supermarket ad where the guy goes on a space rocket. HATE IT! Also despise how they use Berlin's 'Take My Breath Away!'

Should have been Aerosmiths 'i dont want to miss a thing' if they were going with the Armogeddon vibe.

Why is it a sell out?
George Clooney does ads for Nescafe FFS!


Watched a good interview with David Mitchell where he discussed adverts and voiceovers. He has no quarms about it what so ever. It's an easy gig for a good wage.

Was she fighting with the Churchill dog over a Terry's chocolate orange? I'd pay good money to see that.

"It's not yours, it's mine!!!"
"Oh no no no no noooo..."

Let's have a change from "worst" to "best."

You'll like this one.

The one with the woman's boyfriend moving in?

There are so many of these 'family' type adverts they get on MY wick. Like those car ones that cover 4 years of someones life or something - that bloke took up with a woman who had a kid as well.

I only know a few of all the ads mentioned on this thread, most I've never heard of cos I V+ all my programmes and fast forward through the adverts so I just see then flashing by, I've never actually heard the words spoken.

I remember watching a programme about Leonard Rossiter. Bil Franklin (ssssh, you know who!) said he was talking to Len about those ads he'd been offered with Joan Collins. He thought they were beneath him til Bill told him the Shweppes ads he'd done had bought him a house and goodness knows what. And of course this was in the 70's
So he did them! And made a lot of money.

The money is obviously why they all do them. Why wouldn't they?

I'm puzzled by the Kit Kat 'Choose a Champion' advert - the Mintanator (sp?) looks like a cheap Green Lantern, Coconutrix looks like Elektra meets Leeloo from The Fifth Element, Hazelnutter is dressed like Jordi La Forge (I think - sp?) from Star Trek, and the Chocolate Fudge one looks like he's been fired from The Village People

That stupid trailer for Later With Jools Holland on BBC HD. It's a pointless waste of time and money!

Mcdonalds ads annoy me because they seem to show how good mcdonalds is for everyone, eg in the latest ad the step dad likes mcdonalds.

The reality is any mcdonalds is just full of 17 year old boys racing round the car park trying to impress everyone nearby. Its not a family place where anybody of any age can go, its imtimidating for anyone over the age of 20 with all the chavs crowded round shrieking at each other.

The Saniflow has to be the most teeth-grindingly awful one on air at the moment. It's not just the appauling voiceover, but the fake plumber dressed like a children's TV presenter. Waving his hand and listing changes to four or five different systems as next to no work ("Just put in an electical supply...") and the visualisation. Then to cap it all they try to make it female friendly by going to another basement room (strange house that) and showing a woman can click her fingers four times too.

That ad is poor. I immediately thought of this thread when I say it.

The HD makes no difference! the sound quality and level are appalling on both, you have to turn the volume up just to hear Jools Holland rattling on, those "sound engineers" are on a good thing cos they are obviously being paid to do nothing.

The ad for Leerdammer is terrible ....
"Helloooo" "pi@@ off freak".

The Leerdamer ad reminds me of something in The Simpsons:

Bart (trying "free" sample): Sooo.. you say this product is known as fudge?
Lady: Yes. Just like it was LAST week.
Bart: If you're gonna get sniffy, I'll take my business elsewhere

Oh and that postcode lottery ad with the awful Fiona Phillips. If you're in it and you win it Fiona, do two things with the cash. 1, get your beak sorted and 2, learn to speak without nodding.
heh heh just seen this one. How annoying is her stupid nodding? She's worse than one of those dogs on the back window of a car.

Also looks like she is trying to be about 30 years younger than she really is

The recent Go Compare, "haha, we know we're annoying" ad. The Stephan Hawkins one was bizarre and now it's one with Gino and some old lady sitting in tha bus stop. I actually love Gino's speaking voice but it's the ending that's annoying with the woman walking off scowling and saying, "It's a mystery," these ads are kind of mean spirited.

Brian Cox was asked if he liked the Stephen Hawking 'black hole' Go Compare ad when he was on The Last Leg on Friday. He responded:

"I would if they'd got the physics right."

The "nah, you're alright" ad is vaguely sinister
