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.
They are being replaced by compare the market as the sponsors of Corrie in a few months time. Which is going to annoy me. I hate that meerkat.

I'd love to bet let loose on set with a couple of Uzis the next time Vernon Kay and his mum are filming an advert.

Annoying bastards.
I plan to have them kneecapped just need a juicy lottery win to pay for it.

Joke mods in case someone is proffesionaly offended on their behalf and complains.

The VO5 Demo adverts are annoying.

That awful Crunchy Nut advert where the snake comes out of the cupboard and bites the man, who creates these things?

Can they please stop using Joanna Paige as a voice-over or in any advert as I find her voice very irritating and I'm Welsh by the way

Right now every time I hear the Lloyds TSB tune I'm driven into a banker-centred homicidal state.


Halifax are also infuriating. I preferred it when they had that spectacled man with the loon-Ville background or even the awful DJs. Just not a chorus of thieving bastards singing a friendly song.

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.
Maybe they are waving goodbye to their employees with today's news.

I know this is worst adverts but I quite liked the Direct Line one with a HUUUUGE line of people picking up a phone, opening an umbrella, opening a car door etc...

Asda's latest advert talking complete BS about how they are cheaper than other supermarkets. I also hate the patronising voiceover! "...cheaper on twice as many products as Tesco, that's the blue one, Sainsburys, that's the orange one and Morrisons, well you get the gist..." PISS OFF!

That Churchill dog, along with the Dolmio family, have been pestering our screens for far too long! It's about time Dolmio and Churchill updated their image. Just don't use twee covers of choirs, please.

Also, I've noticed that 'blood in your poo' ad is back. I did laugh at the name of the doctor in the advert, though.

It's getting to be like nails down a blackboard for me.

I was eating my dinner when that came on my TV.

The 'blood in your poo' advert makes me feel rather sick just hearing it..

I quite like the queemie queemie adverts with the food that has faces, okay the fact that the foods say 'queemie' instead of 'creamy' really irks me but I like the style. Annoying Orange anyone?

And, as a girl who has the misfortune to have Mother Nature's monthly gift right now, the always sanitary pad adverts annoy me. Not only are they gross but.. 'have a happy period?' seriously? Someone feel free to tell me how to have a happy period as Always says.. in my opinion happy periods don't bloody (no pun intended heh) exist!

If Willis is short of a few bob then he should pull his finger out and do another Die Hard.

I like the Keira Knightly advert for the Chanel Mademoiselle perfume. But I don't get it. Very romantic, Keira strips off, gets into bed, they almost kiss. She then says lock the door and while he is doing that she manages to get dressed again and escape out of the window. He rushes to the window and sees her smiling and popping the perfume into her pink leather jacket whilst zooming off on her motorbike. All this to the background song "This is a Man's World"

It's a pretentious fragrance ad. What else did you expect
