that new monster.co.uk ad wtf is with that .... a moose is on a wall of a posh git(s) house and the guy with the moose's ass on the desk but asks need a better job
The other two recruitment agency campaigns out there at the moment (Totaljobs with the "Lucky" man and Reed's Star Trek parody) try a bit too hard to be zany.

it's the name of the show.
I know. It just really annoys me when verbs get used as nouns! Similarly, I recall some charity auction programme being called The Big Give.

Yep, no. I don't want to know how people wipe their arses. It's a bit of a tacky ad!

Ah, I see think "ask" is just a play on words though. It does annoy me a bit too that sort if thing, "the big give" just sound daft

Just seen the jackpot joy one for comic relief, Barbara Windsor dressed as Elizabeth I, kicking the bejesus out of some random "thugs" for stealing her red nose....I really must take more water with it

Maybe we could arrange a "Liz off" between her and Beyonce, first one to lose their ruff is the loser...
Felt a bit sick then. I thought it said "LEZ off".

I'll wait for a 'hot slurry' to occur first and make sure I have an extra large Jiffy bag.

Just seen a cringe worthy one from McDonalds.

Basically a mum says to her teenage son that her new lover will be moving in, the kid is frosty to him and ignores his attempts at 'bonding' until he invites him to McDonalds, and the kid offers him a gurkhin out of his burger.

the advert ends with the line 'we all have McDonalds in common' (puke!)
Talking of McDonalds, I wonder what foreigners, even English as first language ones, Australians, Americans, etc. think of the one where the northern kid keeps saying, "No, yerr alright."
Culminating in the "dad" saying the same.
If this is the one that you meant cowboy, then I apologise.

The moral of this ad is, keep eating McDonalds when there's "nothing in the fridge" and you will eventually start talking like an incoherent, stroke addled northern chav.

I'm assuming that's the intended message of the ad.

Usually I watch the Andrex ad in bemusement, but it came on while I was eating my dinner tonight and really put me off I can't believe somebody got paid to come up with that

What about the "Recruiters"

I use the term in the loosest form as the Reed advert is utter shite. The CEO and board must have seen the prelim and thought "wow" brilliant !

BUT it isnt quite as bad as the "man dressed as a "bag of shit" who actually thinks he "might" get to interview......

Has anyone mentioned Cash Lady yet? I suppose anyone thick enough to still be a fan of that awful Katona woman is the ideal target market for a legal loan shark.

One would assume that McDonalds do not run this advert in Australia, America, etc. so I'm not sure that's a huge problem for them.

So everyone with a northern accent is a chav? Is that what you're saying in your offensive southern way?

Is that the one where Andrex say they plant 4 new trees for every mature one they cut down.

A mathmetician friend of mine says that is a good reason NOT to buy Andrex because if they quadruple their trees very soon the entire world's surface will be covered with their plantations.

A biologist friend of mine says not so, it is misleading. It is one thing to plant 4 trees but how many survive to maturity? If bad winters, dry summers, insects, diseases and passing deer removing bark mean the survival rate is less than 1 in 4 the total number of trees will decrease. We should be told.
The biologist is correct. It's normal practice to plant 4x as many saplings as you need to allow for die off, so in fact they're just replacing what they used as you'd expect on plantations of finite size. What they should be doing if they really want to appear to care about trees is sponsor organisations like the woodland trust who manage native woodlands.
