This series of adverts is ABSOLUTELY annoying! Hearing "It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...." like 10 times over a day is quite frankly annoying.

Just now on ITV Central, it was like:

Start Commercial
*random advert*
Asda advert
*random advert*
Asda advert
*random advert*
Asda advert
End Commercial

It's really annoying IMO.

DMN are you Paul O'Grady? (joke)

Can't say I've noticed it on much myself, but any ad that's on more than a couple times an evening is infuriating.

If you don't watch ITV, you're far less likely to have to endure the trauma of seeing an advert for ASDA.

..with the considerable added bonus of being far less likely to have to endure the trauma of seeing an ITV programme

I've really gone off asda as soon as they started to compare their prices to Tesco, and then Morrisons which i do not think is fair.

And there latest adverts are annoying, that same annoying song playing every time. and when it shows the prices of some things and shows the previous price, these are not very good savings, a bottle of champagne now at 17 ok sounds ok but then you see the previous price 17.44 or something like that, oh wow i've saved 44 pence on a bottle of bubbly, oh gosh i should buy a new dress with the money i've saved

it was the same with a christmas pudding and something different. I'm sorry but seeing a saving of 44 pence is not going to get me shopping there.

Oh and to the person at the beginning of the thread who said at least the advertising people have done their job, well not really, they have done part of it by getting people to talk about it, but adverts are supposed to get you to shop there. Asda don't make money with people talking about them

How much do their cards cost? Someone suggested them, I went to their site, it didn't work as the cards didn't come up. I've not been back since.

I have only ever used them once, i normally use remind4u.com but i think the card i bought (personalised) was about 3 with something like 40p postage but i think some cards might be prices different. Don't take my word for it though as i can't remember fully.

I can cope with the Tesco ad & Des O'Connor, because he's also taking the p**s out of himself, and it's only on once.
The Asda one is REALLY annoying now ( and I used to love that song!). It does Asda no good at all - why thrust it in our faces every other advert??! It's not making me want to go there and shop, it just makes me want to F/Forward!
PS: I love Christmas really
PPS: There's no Asda store in my town anyway, I use Tesco's or Morrisons. Or the local corner shop.

It isn't just down to adverts that they are popular. If lots of people are complaining that they are annoying, then its bound to mean other people do not like them. Asda are good at putting stores at big places, in big cities, in very accessible locations and outbidding other stores for locations. People who live near an asda are not going to travel miles to shop in a tesco in the next city, so they just go to asda. If asda was our local supermarket we would go there, but our local store is a morrisons so we shop there, and at times somerfield.

Yes adverts will help with people but that is not just what gets people shopping there, same with other stores
