The good news with this one is you get an intro to mute the sound before she starts singing.

OMG The Phones4U advert with the 'Upgrading girlfriend' thing, has got to be so sexist.

Some one should sue them.

I'm wondering if the Galaxy ad is an older advert thats been repeated, because "Why have cotton when you can have silk?" is a slogan that goes back to the 80's at least.
I dont mind the ad because its a lovely song

Just researched it, and apparently it's an advert from 2010. So, not really that old.

Ahhggghhh! A new advert starring Gino D' Acampo (I think it's for mattresses for beds, but I have no idea what Gino has to do with that.) Gino annoys me! Has anyone else seen it?

That Renault Captur advert "we want to store life", the beginning of it just sounds like a spoof advert. Pretentious beyond belief.

Silk makes me sweat so I would rather have cotton while eating Galaxy

This will explain the ad. there is a video of how it was all made but cannot find it at the moment.

And I think we can see she looks nothing like the real AH

Oh it's OK the advert isn't sexist as they have a Female one too.

Only the woman doesn't have violence happen to her unlike the male one.

And both of them objectify people anyway.

That Yorkie ad really bugs me how he is struggling with the shopping to put the key in the door and that lazy b*tch just sits there and looks at him as if shes she doesnt care.

Just pick the bags up and throw them at her face and then see if she gives that stupid look.

This is sorta cheating since it's actually a radio ad, but there's a ad for
Harvey Norman on Irish radio. The ad mentions Abraham Lincoln and Martin
Luther King's famous speeches.....and then boasts neither
of them reached as big
as an audience as the Harvey Norman ads.




Yeah, because selling tacky furniture isn't anywhere near as important
as fighting slavery and racism.

Although I used to enjoy Alexander the meerkat , his last effort is cringeworthy . He cannot sing!

Somebody please punch her and shut her hole.

Why are they still running that moronic Green Flag advert.

Are there idiots out there who actually believe that Green Flag are any better than the other vehicle rescue organisations because of this advert?

I hope not for our sakes.

Idiots driving cars is a recipe for disaster!
That advert is so dumb.

Oh so some idiot has broken down so they make a big song and dance about making it sould as if its a news worthy item with the media worrying if he ll get back for tv.

So what HES BLOODY BROKE DOWN! Big deal its not the end of the world.

The worst thing about the Green Flag advert is that after a few showings they had to add the words "THIS IS AN ADVERT" - as if anyone would think something like a broken down car would be worthy of a headline news item lol

oh and not sure if anyone else has noticed this but the confused.com advert with the two in the car has been redited so they are now just kissing rather than the original version (guess they had too many complaints lol)

My God! James Nesbitt needs to go away now I never could stand his "I'm a nice lovely Irish guy" guise he is so annoying on every advert he is doing the only saving grace is he seems to have replaced annoying Craig Kelly.

What is it with advert makers using the same people for different ads.
