Slightly different ingredient base.

It's suggested however the main reason is marketing - men won't buy "diet" - hence Zero being aimed primarily at men.
Diet Coke is meant to taste different. Coke Zero is supposed to taste more like normal Coke it is just sugar free.

What;s the difference between Diet Coke and Coke Zero if theyre both sugar free then?
I think they have different tastes, I don't like Coke/Coke Zero but I do drink gallons of Diet Coke.

I hope this hasn't turned into a coke thread.
I don't get how some people like or don't like Coke/Pepsi.
I like both, Coke Zero is vile though. So the marketing hasn't worked for me.

How about that toilet paper advert where they ask the nation if they scrunch or fold? Who the devil scrunches their toilet paper? That's just...gross.

For me, it's perle de lait where the woman's crazy hair is sorted out by eating a pot of yogurt. Her strange, hand-over-mouth giggle at the end seems most odd!

i just dont like the womens voice i find it annoying
I see Mrs annoying "Ooh, look at me taps... lovely" has been replaced by another, equally annoying woman.

And just in case she isn't annoying enough, they've thrown in 2 toothless annoying kids too.

And then just to annoy even further, they're using the same script as before.

I searched around for the best prices, then I bought the feckin' lot off Ebay. Up yours.

The baby shed is really annoying.

Victoria Plum I knew of used to be storybooks about a little Elf/pixie with black curly hair, not a bathroom store.

Go compare ad with the dog, this makes me laugh. In certain angles it looks quite rude, like two dogs having a bunk up

I like him. He looks a bit like Nicholas Cage crossed with Paolo Di Canio.
You like him? ARGH! He makes my blood boil!

Corsodyl - for people who can't be bothered to go to the dentist!
This one! Thought I had seen everything there was to see when it comes to adverts but no!

I'm merrily eating my dinner and GOB! I see someone spit their bloody toothpaste out! And to make matters worse, the tag line reads "for those that spit blood when they brush" (or similar)

Pushes dinner to one side .

Sugar coke from a glass bottle is the best.

Of the diet ones you are correct Pepsi Max is the best one.

I think the cameraman's giving her a flash

An old favourite with a new twist.

I was watching Rock and Chips last night, and the bus taking them on the Jolly Boys Outing was the actual Foxy Bingo bus ... only with less plonkers on than in the ad!

It was almost subliminal advertising!!

Agreed
I also hate the ad with Paul Whitehouse as an "Italian" cafe/restaurant owner - his accent makes him a walking stereotype

Must confess to trying to skip through the adverts on Sky Plus or else doing something useful when they are on. To slightly hijack the thread my favourite advert is the Chris Kamara ones for some betting website - brilliant, absolutely brilliant!

Patsy Kensit appears to have a CGI'ed head in the new Weight Watchers advert, it doesn't look real!
