That one for fashion, presumably advertising some clothes store. Do the letters spell out 'Fashion'?
Confusing and too quick. What is it advertising?

John Lewis Ad. Yet another song that advertisers need to bastardise
I would vote that the best ad' - so cleverly done with the lovers from two different eras.

Just seen the single worst Advert ever. I.. I can't comprehend how terrible it was. It was an ad for The Money Shop. I thought it was a joke. Some bint with a thick northern accent waffling on about her husbands accident.

That is terrible. No one likes those begging charity ads anyway so I don't know why they decided to advertise their crappy shop in that charity-ad style.

Done some research. Apparently it's for a shopping centre. .

I don't think it's particularly original TBH.

Any ad that ends with people suddenly getting up and dancing and 'having a good time'. It all looks so damn fake and lame!

The creepy Red Cross ad with the psychotic girl and her evil looking dog.

The Sainsburys ad with the "Lets go fly a kite" song. HATE that song.

Any "double" advert where they run one then immediately tack another one on to the end. Looks cheap, nasty and badly thought out.

The new pensions scheme advert "WE'RE. ALL. IN." - I'm not and don't need some patronising tagline spoken by a "range" of people to promote buy in.

Its as if there has been a mass sacking of talented ad people leaving just a bunch of twonks who've been on the same degree course running the industry.

I don't like the Sky advert with Bruce Willis.
Oh yeah i HATE that.

How desperate must Bruce Willis be for money and recognition.

Sad git has lost any remaining shred of credibility.

I actually feel sorry for him lying there I think Go Compare may get a warning about making light of "violence" in the near future.
Oh my god, are people still:

A). Going on about this;
B). Making this ludicrous point?

The ad for personalised credit cards 'with your favourite photo'. Sorry, I can't remember what bank it is.
God love us, are we turning into a nation of infants? The ad shows groups of grown-ups (at least they look like adults) giggling and pointing like schoolgirls as they look in admiration at their ickle piccies on their credit cards.

Strewth, what on Earth.....

And while I'm here...

The ad for Oreo's with the little girl telling her Dad how to eat them. I can't bear smart-arse kids or ads that portray men as useless halfwits, and this one does both.
This is best post i've seen in weeks. You have hit the nail on the head.

So M&S have dropped Mylene Klass she now has to pop up in Littlewoods adverts Grrrrrrrrrrrrr
Couple of years and she'll be relegated further to Poundland ads.

I do not like the Relentless energy drink advert with 'Professor' Green.
Has anyone over the age of 15 ever drank this chemical pish?

I usually take comic 'violence' with a pinch of salt, but there's something not right with this advert; especially with Stuart Pearce punching the air in victory while Gio doubles up on the ground.

Oh good lord, I've just seen an ad for Lynx where a woman smashes up a load of cars in New York to get to the hot bloke, and it ends with a shot of the New York skyline on fire, with smoke everywhere, and helicopters flying towards it. I know it's been years since 9/11 now, but I still think that's really really tasteless.

Ok I have to say, I have a new least favourite advert- WHAT is with the new Moonpig advert? A load of grinning morons who look like they have just been lobotomised, shouting out what they see in a creepy, off key, almost fearfully eager way?? The woman in pink on the front row is the worst culprit! Ugh if I have to hear her shouting 'HELLO KITEEEEEE' one more time....

I just think that she is old enough to be his great grandmother, if she is still alive.

Sainsbury's - that song gets on my nerves.

John Lewis - what is that all about?

Cuprinolled Dickenson about borrowing money

British Red Cross - FFS, not only is this advert creepy as hell but I've seen it FIVE TIMES today alone! Enough with the emotional BLACKMAIL!
