The new OREO;s ad with the kid. How annoying is this advert, It's only cute to her parents, noone else!

The 'wise beyond their years' is getting old now.
I find it uncomfortable to watch.

I suppose you could call these adverts.

The bumpers used for Central Weather to advertize Flybe

Oh I really like that ad. The same little girl was in a drama about the ghost orphanage (cant remember the title) on bbc and she's a cracking little actress.

Just see the O2 Beyonce advert. Very bad.

She isn't that great.
I saw it today and thought it was a new bingo site advert until they put her name up at the end

They've changed the Peugot Gary's Cat advert!

Used to be this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=__z7pg8gTSI

Now they instead say:

"Gary's cat is missing, but it looks like he's got it covered, just like your Peugot with this deal, blah blah blah."

Then they end with:

"Oh look, there's Gary's cat"

Funny to see they changed it, wonder if it was due to the bad pres the advert got, or just a general ofcom complaint?
Well thank goodnss for that.

Just a general comment. I see Tesco have learnt from Aldi that short snappy, clever (or simple whichever is your take)ads make the best impact. No celebs just old (ish)songs, black script on white background.They must be saving a fortune on TV advertsing.

Yes I thought it was going to be Babara Windsor at first.

PROFESSOR GREEN!

I really can't stand his music and I really wish they'd stop playing that advert.

Prof Green. The ad does nothing for me, I just think what an idiot (or something like that), poseur, and get distracted hoping he doesn't scratch the cars. Not a good ad when viewers think of something different.

Please can someone get that anti smoking ad with the tumour on the fag off, it is on my TV, on bus stop ads, and now it is on DS!

I don't smoke, have never smoked and I do NOT wish to have any more meal times ruined with this hideous ad.

Gambling ads.

Online gambling ads.

Online gambling ads that emphasis excitement and community - how sad does someone have to be to sit at home playing online bingo or routlette kidding themselves they have company?

I think that. The one where a supposed couple are sat on the sofa bored, then suddenly look overjoyed at the realisation they could be gambling right now!

The new Bet Victor casino ad with Dennis Pennis (his real name escapes me) playing some kind of Russell Brand character. I think I'm just sick of all gambling adverts.

The Peugeot advert. Gary lost his cat, so he decided to replace it with a car. I don't even know where to start on that, tbh.

The Revenge advert on E4 is absolutely terrible. Makes the previous one look like a masterpiece.

Health Lottery.

46 million paid to good causes in the past year - makes me grind my teeth when they underplay the fact that they give less per ticket to charity than the National Lottery.

And they also underplay the fact that the do not have a licence to run an ongoing national lottery. To get round this it is not one lottery but a separate one each week (different geographical areas).

And (again) the implication that health organisations support it in preference to alternative fund raising methods.

Also they no longer play the lucky ticket game,,,cant remember them advertising the end of that.

...and I've always thought 'The Health Lottery' is what they should rename the NHS.

Any Bingo ad at the minute just grates on me,but particularly Tombola with the ugly looking folk with their quirky names dancing,kite flying and bloody kareokying,surely reality is some Beararse rough chav sitting in front of their comp in a stinky onesy spending their social on bingo,while their kid's fend for themselves.
The ad that has the 'national treasure' that is Barbara Windsor isn't much better neither.

She is a great performer though IMO, she's done some very catchy songs and she's hot

Surely that kid is eating too much honey he has honey in his porridge and then he has honey on his cakes and then when he gets home his mum looks like she is squeezing the whole bottle on a chicken.

I see they've edited the colgate advert. The woman now just says "a little blood" and not "isn't that normal" to make her sound less like an idiot
