Peter Andre on the Gala Bingo ad. Is there nothing that man won't do for publicity?
I just seen this and wanted to throw one of the pets through the telly*

Even though I love Google Chrome as web browser, the adverts for it are a load of rubbish

Not a fan of this new Direct Line advert, with the long line of people doing a mexican wave of random actions. I just don"t get the point of it.

Oh, and it feels like McDonalds make more new adverts than hamburgers lately! Swear there's a new one everyday!

"OK let's talk gums" - one of the least promising opening lines ever.....

Whenever they talk about bleeding gums I just think about the sax. player 'bleeding gums Murphy' on The Simpsons!

I can't recall many of them on the telly, but they frequently appear for me on YouTube (not surprising considering Google owns the site).

They're OK but can be a bit sickly sweet. Well done, you made your handbag business a success and I'm sure that's lovely for you and your friends/family...but why should I care? Likewise for some random bloke who is trying to win back his girlfriend. Definitely not the worst ads around at the moment though.

Yea that handbag is doing the rounds on TV at the moment,

but there's no need to put up with ads on YouTube, get an adblocker extension

Harveys Furniture, Sponsors of Coronation Street, those ads have stopped me from going into their shop, even when I was hunting round for a three piece....the gormless women aren't even funny.

That bloody sickening Halifax choir are back with yet another incredibly annoying cover version of a classic.
This time it's "I Want to Know What Love Is".
Absolutely hate their self-satisfied, smug yawping!
One of the many adverts I now mute.

I find quite a few ads stop me from buying their products... if they have someone I do not like (Davina McCall) in them or if the ad is annoying.

The Bounty advert with the woman on the tropical island. I've seen it quite a few times, but I only just realised the strange warbling song is actually in English.
Also the when the guy turns up on the woman's dream island she looks petrified.

That is a brilliant song by a brilliant band.

Blame Debenhams for ruining it.
it's an awful song, Debenhams could only improve it.

Me too.

The Go Compare ads with Stuart Pearce is now more annoying than all of the old Gio Compario ones combined simply because of being overexposed.

Is it wrong that I want to put the Halifax Choir on the 'B' Ark?

It may have already been mentioned, but dear God the Tampax Pearl olypic themed advert is cringe-worthily bad! The whole thing is such a pantomime effort, especially with the atheletic Jessica Ennis-esque girl heroically telling mother nature "I don't think so!" in the most awfully acted line I've ever seen in my twenty years of life. Then when she does the highjump, mother nature's gormless reaction is HILLARIOUSLY bad. Oh, the whole advert makes me cringe.

I was going to say this! How long has it been going as well? I'm sure It's been the exact same ad for about 10 years, you'd think they'd splash out for a new ad once in a while

That advert is terrible, first time I saw it I was with my partner and we fell about laughing at Mother Natures gormless expression.
Reminds me of one of those crappy ads they make for the task in The Apprentice.

The Dolmio advert where the young bloke pokes his girlfriend's eye out when he thinks he's come across his folks rutting like Gloucester Old Spot (specifically) pigs.
