"I do all my own stunts - even lovemaking..." ... Annoying adverts thread


Recommended Posts

Two ads that leap out to me at the moment. That fucking Ladbrokes one with the cock and the other cunt:

And the really weird new Disnleyland one, that I can't easily find on Google. It's talking to Dads wanting to take their teenage daughter to Disneyland, and it somehow gets the tone exactly wrong and sounds a bit peado-y.

The Stephen Hawking GoCompare one I quite like. I kinda feel dirty for liking it though.

The bits with their operatic mascot are filmed on a road I used to live on, fact fans.

I think this makes the ad very exciting. Perhaps less so for most people, admittedly.

Im getting serious, annoyingly annoyed at all of the adverts doing the dumb layman explaining something schtick, with smug music behind. The Sky TY adverts...i got an ipad, my mate said its got tv on it, i said no, he said yes..etc etc. Or the..im techy, but i dont understand how sky plus records from a mobile app. The music behind it all is sickeningly annoying too. Ugh, makes me want to cancel all of my sky.

In fact it seems 90% of ads are some fake attempt at pretending someone is being filmed, explaining how the product works to us.

The current Sky Go add featuring the dumbest cunts in existence acting in mock amazement about being able to watch films on a computer makes me wish that television had never been invented.

The advert is about the fact that you can now download stuff to your device to watch offline rather than streaming over wifi. It's a new feature that a lot of people wouldn't know about.

There seems to be a trend at the moment where women are painted as smug superior cows and men are portraid as hapless idiots at the moment. I HATE those ads.

basic rule of advertising. if your selling to a woman, tell her she's cleverer than a man. job done.
