You have to be an alien to shop at Argos and I have a lot of kids and would love my OH to have had some of them, the Triplets especially.

On another subject, I saw Ronnie Corbett again in that advert where he's fully clothed in a sauna. It's so memorable that I can't even remember what it's advertising. A successfully advert then.
Would you rather he was naked Tesco mobile I believe but that is an ad which fails because they are suppose to be taking the pee out of themselves as people think having a Tesco mobile is embarrassing but these ads just confirm this view.

A naked Ronnie Corbett Is too horrible to think about. Tesco mobile, that's it.

Curry's ad for a Samsung Smart TV....the noisiest, loudest, shouty song on tv at the moment. Has me reaching for the remote...it really is an assault on the ears!

Samsungs own smart TV ad is a real anti climax, the huge build up with everything from helicopters to dinosaurs running along the beach, the music, the bloke sitting there you think "wow, this is awesome, what's going to happen now"..
and then it's for the smart TV!

When actually does the DFS SALE end?
When our sun has shrunken to a red-dwarf and explodes into a spectacular supernova

I've yet to work out what the Grandma says at the end of that Money Advice advert. Its so inaudible I'm convinced she's mumbling on purpose

The current Confused.com advert has been running through my head all day.

All I have had in my head for the past seven hours is the vacant, dead expression of that robot as it says over and over again, "I've been pleasured!".
Reminds me of this...

Haven't read the whole thread so don't know if this has been mentioned... That stupid Randoms ad with the man dressed as a parrot. It really is awful and not funny in the slightest.

I hate the creepy way the little girl recites everything, parrot fashion, in the ad. Just creepy

B&Q - Stop addressing us as 'Britain' you patronising t**ts!

Vauxhall Astra - Probably the most cringeworthy rapping I have ever heard!

LV - Great, you've changed the advert but you still haven't got rid of that horrible song!

Oral B - Yet another excruciatingly bad twee song!

I see they have cut the part of the Robinson's drink ad where one boy is carrying the other boy up the stairs.

They should get rid of the whole ad. It's too creepy.

Now,correct me if I'm wrong,but Maynards is a British company,is it not?
They are - but they are owned by Cadbury, who is in turn owned by an American company.

I wish to nominate the cereal commercial (I can't remember which one off the top of my head) that's a blantant rip-off of the kitchen scene from Jurassic Park.

Glad someone else agrees!

It truly is f*cking dire.

Crunchy Nut ... and it's an intentional "rip-off" i.e. a homage, which is the whole point.

Not strictly an ad, but the Admiral indents on Dave "Primetime" really get on my bosoms. They make no sense whatsoever.

Another candidate - the recent Mullerice advert using Vanilla Ice's plagiarism of Under Pressure.

or
'The People's.............'

That is a great advert better than the programmes.

Anyone watch PICK TV? The "sky sports living for sports" sponsor makes me want to bang my head against a lamppost! Firstly, I just hate those stupid kids that are shouting out random names of sports- "Archery, basketball, rugby, FOOTBALL!!! (HATE the kid who says football, his shrill voice and enthusiasm makes me want to put duct tape on his mouth)
I mentioned them last year had to be ready with the remote watching any programme on Pick.
