I really don't like the amazon one with the girl growing up in a montage to Rod Stewart. Sentimental load of shite.

The Dad looks like Garry Bushell too, which is unfortunate.

Has there ever been a perfume ad that isn't a stereotypical perfume ad? And is it the only product that has never (intentionally anyway) used humour to sell it? Get Peter Kay and Chanel on the phone, we could be on to something original here.

The one with Johnny Depp MUST be intentionally funny - right? I mean, the product is only one letter away from being called 'Sausage' for crying out loud.

Most of the other ones remind me of that SNL spoof advert for the perfume Red Flag: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HKk91x0Yg7Q

Channel 4 sponsorship bumpers.

tonight i was entertaining fantasies of getting every single one of those bizarre objects - pot plants, chainsaws, traffic lights, etc etc - that ludicrously and seamlessly dive into the sides of that stupid red car, and shoving every single one of them up the bottoms of the creatives who thought of them

'ABSORB THESE, YOU FUCKERS !!!'

Yes.

AND THOSE DESK LAMPS !!!  GET EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THOSE ANGLEPOISE FUCKERS WEDGED UP YOUR RECTUMS YOU BUNCH OF NAUSEATING CUNTS !!!

What's the deal with this Lloyd's Bank ad with people sticking post it notes on their foreheads and talking about Mental Health. Are Lloyd's going to pump £50 million into national Mental Health services?

No, if you’re mental you get a £5 record token when you open an account with them.

It's just bandwagon jumping isn't it? Trying to create an association between themselves and a hot topic so every time mental health issues are mentioned elsewhere (which is increasingly frequent) they spring to mind as well, and positively. Can only be a matter of time before there's some hypocrisy embarrassment though, a customer or disgruntled employee accusing them of discrimination on mental health grounds or something.

I saw a perfume ad where the gimmick is that they will print a personal message on the box or bottle whatever for you. The funny thing was they felt the need to say "And we won't judge you... Whatever the message." My mind went into fucking overdrive wondering what sort of creepy filth people are sending to each other on perfume bottles. "Spray this on your fanny please love"? Something even ruder than that? I need to know!

I have a massive feeling I have posted about this before. Fuck it. Been a member sixteen years. All my posts from now on are going to be recycled material.

The twee mother-daughter Boots ad with the Robbie cover. Where the biggest and most realistic gesture of maternal affection is to randomly and amateurishly sing a pop cover with a flash-mob choir. "She's me mum! ahhh"

I got some as a prezzie a few months ago and it's honestly really nice,. The trouble is everyone else seems to wear it too. It's a Sauvage fest out there.

Anyone notice the advert for a savings account brought to you by those good folks at Goldman Sachs?

"Marcus..."

(It turns out Marcus was the given name of one of the eponymous founders of the architects and yet somehow also major beneficiaries of the Global Economic Crisis well known investment bank)

I'm currently reading The Big Short, so the fact that a financial institution like this is touting for business from the little people on their televisions is ringing a few quite sinister bells.

Elton "Fucking" John? And didn't John Lewis use Your Song (albeit warbled by Ellie Goulding) back in 2010?

HARD BREXIT NOW.

I know it's fucking January, but I heard someone on Radio 4 a few weeks ago pointing out the synergy between Elton Fucking John and John Fucking Lewis. Apparently they're both venerable, beloved British institutions, and they're equally keen on a good Furnishing.

That electric toothbrush advert that says it's 'inspired by dentists.' Really? Mine's inspired by the Velvet Underground and George Orwell actually.

I've ranted about the sheer number of toothpaste/brush adverts that seem to be on before, but the stupidest is the one with the dimwit who says, with a shocked laugh ''I didn't even know Oral B made a toothpaste!!'' as if it's the most extraordinary concept imaginable that a toothbrush company would go out on a wild limb and launch a toothpaste range.

I absolutely despise the Oral B advert. It seems to be aimed at people who are massively impressed by obvious statements - surely a group that doesn't actually exist?

Watching the telly yesterday, the latest Comparethemarket advert made me wonder if the original premise - that the meerkats were complaining about people endlessly confusing the site comparethemarket.com with their comparethemeerkat.com had been forgotten.

"The adverts have been going on for so long," I thought, "there must be people who don't know, or have never known and have never wondered, what the connection between meerkats and insurance is. To them, it's just 'random', or perhaps a 'law of the universe'."

Anyway, according to wikipedia, the 10th anniversary of the first meerkat insurance advert was last weekend. Ten years.

There was a new advert shilling overpriced sex toys with a voice over by the Guardian's Grace Dent on the other night. It was shit.

Fuck, now we've got a completely unnecessary, resolutely epic and stirring Paloma Faith cover of Go Your Own Way for something or other. We had a brass band interpretation for Sainsbury's or something all throughout Christmas didn't we? There have to be abiding rules for this sort of thing, don't there?

How fitting that they've been a constant presence during the worst decade in the history of humanity.
