I've seen the Pedigree dog food ad twice today; more realistic animal cruelty, and it's not even a charity advert

Wow I meant the whole advert - not the words at the end!

The admiral car insurance one. They've reworked the lyrics to the 'America' song from west side story and it's so annoying.
Also the Ikea gnomes are terrifying.

To be honest the ads in this country aren't as bad as the ones in America. I came across this video on youtube and they are so bad but hilarious.

That Honey Loops advert is as annoying as ****. Autotune, ow!!
I'm sure thats David Tomlinson singing on the ad (if it isn't, it sounds very like him) The song Beautiful Briny Sea is from 'Bedknobs and Broomsticks'.

She says in the voiceover that she was 5 when she went to the caramel shop.

The Cash Lady advert with Kerry Katona has been BANNED!

Now can we get Wonga to go away too?

Any of the ads that use an adult woman singing with a baby voice automatically make me dislike that product

I quite like it But I dont get it, is the boy imagining his dad as if he were his mate, or does his friend grow up to be his dad (that would be creepy)

The specsavers one with the rollercoaster. So irritating, they wouldn't be able to just wander on like that without somebody noticing something's wrong, the ride monitor goes down the ride to make sure all the people are strapped in properly, which they're not at first. The safety harnesses go over both of their arms, and they're both holding something like the sandwiches, flask and handbag.

Then the shot changes so that they are holding the harness properly, with their arms out of the way.

I thought they'd stopped showing it but it was on the telly again yesterday.

I like the music from that advert.

Re: Ikea ad -
Me too - it called 'time for change' by the Bucharest choir or something?

I'm sick to death of this advert! It's shown nearly every break and I just want to kick the TV every time I hear 'what sort of cheese was that'!

And while you're at it, take the bingo and other gambling ads too - yet another way to quickly get yourself into debt! Plus the fact they are all extremely annoying!

I saw it. I saw the Cash Lady advert. I was lead to believe it was gone. I don't know how I feel. I'm so confused. I feel violated. My trust has been slaughtered!

(PS, most of that was sarcasm But I did just see the advert)

I think the Sprite one is odd. Why do they cover the dogs privates? It's not as though we don't see 'naked' dogs on the street every day.

Robinsons Orange squash advert with boy morphing into friends father is out and out weird and creepy.
the other creepy one I don't like is for Disneyland for a father to take his teenage daughter to.

The Race for Life ads on the radio are unbelievably patronising, and they irritate me so much I switch over whenever it comes on. "Millions of women are going to dance all up in your stupid, stupid face" WHAT THE EVERLASTING ****?
