I know right? And they can't even use the excuse that the ad is set in South Africa as the rest of the voiceover doesn't have an SA/Afrikaans accent. I think it's just WRONG.

They pronounce it jem-eh-son in this advert from last year. I think they're deliberately fucking with us.

From now on I'm going to pronounce it 'cuntjuice' when I talk about it, WHICH IS NEVER

As I ranted above, it's partly that she appears astonished that a toothbrush brand has made the radical leap of making a toothpaste.

I'd interpreted it as her laughing at herself for how out of touch she was regarding developments at Oral B. I.e I was oblivious to the fact that Oral B were even making toothpaste, let alone how bloody good it is- how could I be so out the loop?

It struck an odd chord with me because I don't think anyone could be reasonably expected to keep up to date with Oral B's products. The fact she was laughing about it made me wonder, with some discomfort, what other insipid things she'd be prepared to laugh about. It made me think being in a relationship with her must be a soul crushingly lonley experience.

Call me a massive softie... but there was an advert on telly on Saturday where a little girl is playing football, and giving a running commentary to her Dad.

I'd had a couple of drinks, I admit, but the reveal 'got me in the feels' (do they say that?) like someone had stabbed me there.

Have those very strange ads for Gerberit bog/bidet combi things been mentioned yet? Are they trying to be funny intentionally?

Two adverts are making my blood boil at the moment. The BA advert with all the National Treasure's talking about our green and pleasant land. It's almost as shameless as the Carling advert boasting British is best. Then there's the Plusnet advert with the piss weak Peter Kay impressionist doing a cloying cover of Cyndy Lauper's 'Time after Time'. How did these ideas ever see the light of day?

Having a complete Mandela moment now as I was so sure that series of ads was for Talktalk. I even had second thoughts before signing up with them recently because I hate them so much. Sorry Talktalk.

I agree about that BA advert. It's cringeingly Brexit. I have to mute it when it comes on. I bet Rees-Mogg has had a big old wank over it.

The following Aldi advert has to be the most Brexit advert of all

Guinness clear...

Well you were the fucking bellends that upped the ante with the vaguely arty reverential shite. Don't come back with an extremely basic, horribly dated parody of what you've been doing for years.

Heineken kept it simple with nico rosberg dicking about being some kind of millionaire playboy. Canny drink the night lads got this amazing sports car to drive tonight. I'll have a disgusting alcohol free Heineken though.

This might belong more in the ''F**k my hat...'' thread, but according to their new advert it turns out we've been saying Jameson's all wrong. Well you have if you've been saying it 'Jameson', you know, like it's actually spelled, unless you're obviously a lot cleverer than me (and I suspect a lot of others too) and already knew it's actually apparently pronounced 'Jam-eh-son'. There's other issues with the ad too, like the way it sets the scene as happening in 2017 as if that was 50 years ago, but it's the pronounciation that's the weirdest. Jam-eh-son. Jam. Eh. Son.

Love the bit at the end of the advert when the two lads look at each other... OF COURSE they only took The Jamason its fucking amazing. They'll have tanked the lot within a week the dirty scoundrels.

In that Matt Berry-narrated Money Supermarket one I assume they were like, "Matt, just talk like you do in Toast of London for thirty seconds."

Harry Redknapp shilling for GoDaddy in an ad where he sets up a company called Harry's Jam Roly Polys.

The ad ends with him putting his face in his freshly baked roly polys and going "'Triffic!"

This is Harry Redknapp, who famously has no sense of taste or smell.

Which means what he's referring to as "'Triffic!" is the sensation of heat hitting his face.

I'll have twelve!

I'm sure the phenomenon's already been mentioned but the Plusnet/Peter Kay ad reminds me of that dreaded fucking formula:

Loud Blaring Tune
moment of quiet/mutedness so you look up and see if it's changed
NOPE BACK AGAIN (for Longer This Time)

Most egregiously used in that awful Maoam advert with the gawky lad dancing round a school assembly hall. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I59XOttwZLg)

I do, however, quite like C4's ginger dopey-looking Dolce Gusto lady.

At least it's for a sweet so you can understand why the advert is aimed at kids. It's a shame that every advert is aimed at kids.

So, the ad - for BT I think? - where a man comes home to find his house overrun with cowboys, GIs and fantasy folk? I'm puzzled as to the dynamic here - is it a shared house, or a family home? Because his ability to banish everyone upstairs to bathrooms and bedrooms suggests the latter, however it's noticeable that at no point does he acknowledge the other occupants, which could imply the former.

And there's another thing. There are, I think, two other occupants, a possibly-teenage boy and a woman of indeterminate age. The former is presumably playing some WW2 FPS game; the latter, watching a fantasy TV show. So where did the cowboys come from? Who is playing Red Dead Redemption, or watching Westworld? Is it the shadowy figure seen distributing the WiFi extenders? Or is it the protagonist - as their sharing a sofa and cup of tea with him at the end might confirm - but if it is, why were the cowboys already present when he got home?

The cowboys are merely potential cowboys, waiting, as it were, in the wings.

They are really fucking pushing that phone. I'm not paying any more attention than I usually do to adverts, but the S10 adverts/posters have been everywhere the last couple of weeks.

Also the McDonald's adverts have really been getting on my piss lately. First you had that Big Mac anniversary ad, showing how vital a part the Big Mac has been in all of our lives through the last few generations. Then that ballache one that tried to pretend the whole nation were arguing about whether it's still a Big Mac if it has bacon. Now their cunt Monopoly game is back and there's a new advert where everyone's going round twitching their finger going 'peely peely!' - because when you peel the sticker off you do that with your finger!!!!!! And our hero doesn't know about it so he's all left out.

It just rubs me up the wrong way seeing a company like that, who've become so synonymous with a kind of American-gone-global, faceless, greedy corporation, trying to pretend like they're some key part of ordinary life. Fuck off.

I kinda feel grubby bigging them up, but Barclaycard done good with their ad that's currently all over YouTube with the woo woo hippy bollockses and their crystals.

FUCKING HELL, THEY'RE ACTUALLY REAL.

So weird when women lean their head 45° for photos, presumably thinking it makes them look more attractive. It actually makes them look nuts.

For the first time (as far as i can remember), I've actually been quite enjoying some adverts.  The gambleaware adverts are pretty funny I reckon.  The one where the kebab shop lad gets teleported to the Panamanian studio where they berate him for randomly putting a bet on based on the names of the teams got a good lol when I first saw it, and resonated with my gambling habit at university.
