Worst TV advert at the moment is . . . ??

Due to my insomnia I watch plenty of stuff on commercial TV overnight. It is all recorded stuff so I can skip the ads if I choose to. However, if I'm rolling a fag, grabbing a beer or nipping upstairs for a piss I use the advert time to do that.

Now some ads are perfectly fine and a few may well be very good on first viewing, though seeing them time after time is unlikely to make me purchase the product, most ads are for things I never buy - e.g. hair dye. :): But I absolutely loathe some of them and have to grab the remote and fast forward.

To me the very worst of them is the moneysupermarket ad about Dave - it makes me cringe,

warning: do not watch if you are in any way normal



:throwup:

I seem to remember that their earlier ads were pretty awful as well. Who the hell likes these peculiar ads?

What are your worst ads at this time eh ?? :)

Yeah, that one is pretty awful. Like you I only see ads by accident or if watching live sport.

Those Direct Line ones with Harvey Keitel.

Why do people upload crap adverts on YouTube anyway ?

What are adverts? :)
I mute the tv if I can't FF. :shrug:
Though the sight of some ads gets me tearing my eyes out.

Commercial channels are unwatchable in real time because of the ads ... I completely lose track/interest/the will to live.

I record everything and fast-forward through the shoite.

There must be people out there that don't mind them but it's clear none of us do. If I do watch TV it's live footie or a wagonload of Discovery type stuff. When the ads come on, I flick to another channel until I find one out of sync with the ad break time. Unfortunately, I forget about the channel I was watching initially and wind up missing the end :rofl: Sometimes I remember the channel number I was on and switch back to it OK. Love Homicide Hunter at the mo, Joe Kenda is a legend, well worth a watch :splif:

That's what miss smeggy does.

I only have the TV on to keep tabs on the propaganda via the BBC news channel and then BBC3 for comedy and other nonsense now and again. Very rarely I put a commercialchannel on and immediately notice the propaganda from the ads is as fraudulent as the political propaganda from the BBC

Did they do something similar later than 1971 Major? That's well before my time, but I'm sure I've seen something very similar :confused:

The one with the cat and the bird singing to each other. It isnt the advert itself that annoys me but the blisteringly stupid expression on the womans face as she watches her animals sing.

A good slap across her chops should sort it out.
