I want to destroy my laptop every time this turns up on youtube when I'm watching some innocent music video. It's the way she says, "my brain" as "my brain" as if the concept is new to her, and the way she pronounces neurosciences as if this too is some brave new world where such things have not been heard of before.

And how can 'she' be happy with 'her brain'? YOU ARE BOTH ONE AND THE SAME.

"What will make you say wowcher?"

Possibly a sudden and unexpected sighting of a fading 1960s-1990s singer and actress latterly famous for the copious amounts of plastic surgery she's had, which shocked me so much I immediately forgot all rules of pronunciation, grammar and punctuation.

I love that Saniflow advert. The idea that the woman in it has a mad desire to have a toilet in every room and cupboard in the house amuses me no end.

Apologies if this has been discussed before in the old thread, but I've only just seen this three minute long advert for The Guardian and Observer Weekend:

I mean...What? What the fuck? I know they're hardly the papers they once were, but that...it just makes me want to burn so so many things...

Jesus, I was just about to post that now. That is lower that any tabloid ad, a mish mash of money.dot.com and poncy middle-class joke free laugh-an-ads. Did I just see the Ukranian mafia boss from Dexter in the ad? How much fucking money did they waste on that. I abandoned ship long ago, but will be urging everyone to stop reading these papers now.

It annoyed me when I saw it that they had Hugh Grant wank lyrical about how the Guardian is precious and wouldn't stoop to marketing bollocks, then did three full minutes of painful marketing bollocks just to say 'we have a weekend supplement'.

This sounds so morally pretentious, which is 'cos I'm drunk. I don't give a fuck if you advertise, but it's the 'you know we'd only advertise something good' followed by the stupidly overblown ad.

Like the end scene though. Actor in that is funny.

If you were watching the ad in 2001, yes.

I think it's just the casual way he says the phrase, it's something about the actor himself and his satisfied delivery. If it was just that scene, I wouldn't mind it. But altogether it's just like 'look at us, we're doing a funny advert!'

it's appallingly acted and scripted, it seems as though someone heard she was in town and they rushed something together at the last minute

Maybe I'm thick, or just not paying much attention, but it was about the tenth time I saw it when I finally clocked that she wasn't just being 'kooky', she's supposed to be behaving like that because she's been in a coffee shop all day drinking lots of coffee so she could use their free wifi (because that's like what she did in The Friends, always in the coffee shop etc.). Or maybe it's intentionally obtuse, so it's power lies in it's subtlety, they don't hammer home with heavy handed exposition, they want the viewer to join the dots as it's always so much more rewarding when you find the treasure yourself.

2. Massive favour? Massive fuck off and leave my coffee alone.
3. Liar.
4. Carey Mulligan?
5. IT MEANS HE'S GOING TO SEE YOU LATER YOU BINT
6. Friend zone well and truly obliterated with one seedy, suggestive sentence.
7. That actor does the voice over for the Burger King advert. What a git.

I think it's an ad man's attempt at being down with young women in London. It doesn't make any sense because nobody ever does it. It's pretty much a guess at a black girl's mannerisms.

Those Everything Everywhere adverts with Kevin Bacon annoy me. I've no problem with him or the general concept of the adverts, but he's not playing the Six Degrees game properly!

I've grown to hate the one they show before the film in the cinema, with all THE Kevin Bacons at a kitchen table. Not so much because it's a shite ad but because I go to the flicks quite a lot and I'm sick of seeing the fucking thing.

But regardless of quality I tend to hate the privileged final ad that comes after the official adverts and trailers have finished, and the cinema chain logo has been on. You think, finally, time for the film, but no, there's still one more to go, and it's longer than a regular advert and more superciliious too.

Ha, I  though she meant her husband had taped his face to the dog. I've never known anybody go to McDonald's for a coffee. There's plenty of specialist chains for that, nor would most people choose it as a venue to reveal they're having a baby or ask someone out. Those ads should take place at 2 in the morning, feature disheveled folk from all backgrounds spilling secret sauce down their tops and mumbling about how their boss/kids/wife don't understand them.

Does anyone have a comprehensive article/link to advertising in the cinema?

I expect to see a graph with an exponentially increasing curve with YEAR on the x-axis and No. Adverts/Length of advertising on the y-axis (Figure 1).

On the following page I expect to see a table detailing the diversity of advert types over the same period as Figure 1. This will also show an increasing diversity.

And finally, I expect to see a comparative table of adverts featuring on Television and those shown at the cinema. A rather more complicated graph will highlight a convergence of the two over the last decade.

Oh my fucking God. Don't, under any circumstances, watch this if you're feeling a bit down. It doesn't so much belong in the bleak thread as in the coldest darkest corner of your soul.

I saw it the other night when I was hammered, and I had to check the next day to make sure I hadn't dreamt it. I really didn't like the thought of my brain coming up with something as depressing as that after alcohol.
