"Properly policed. It must not turn into The Crow."


"A remake of The Warriors, only set in the 1980s, and with a gang that model themselves on Phil Oakey and Giorgio Moroder..."

Just seen an ad on All 4 where Robert DeNiro is advertising a Kia.

Fosters seem to have resurrected the Aussie helpline blokes for some reason. Literally nothing else to say about that but there you go.

This is going to happen a lot more I fear. Just wait, we'll see the 'WASUUUUUUUP' jerks again soon.

That George Clooney coffee ad can fuck right off.  'What doth thou desire?'  What I desire is for someone to have got their fucking grammar right.  Fucksakes.

A coffee ad where George Clooney works in an office of a suitably desolate firm and slowly goes through caffeine addiction to the point it actually ruins his life somehow

Wasn't there an advert recently for some totally unrelated company, where Howard cameoed and was hilariously told he was in the wrong ad?

Yeah it was Hotels.com with that captain obvious hipster cunt and the thick 'winning' woman bullshit. Hateful stuff.

Often I'll be reading the paper during the adverts, or I'll tune out and not really pay attention... so there's one advert that has Michael Jackson doing his trademark "Hooooo!" several times, and I keep joining in with "hee-hee!" and "shamone motherfucker!" and when I finally pay attention to it I realise it's supposed to be an owl.  It sounds nothing like an owl, It's Jacko!

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.

There was one a while ago with people getting mortally offended because a big mac shouldn't have bacon in it.  Fuck off, nobody cares. Plus bacon is lovely.

And that peely peely one.  Ugh.  It's like this one guy sees all these knobheads saying 'peely peely' and doing an odd gesture and because he's a foreign he's not familiar with this strange greeting so he tries to fit in by joining in, but in doing so he gets it a bit wrong and everyone thinks he's a bit of a prat.  But it's them who are the prats for saying it in the first place.

I fucking hate the Andrex advert where one time a kid felt as clean as a squid or something and the ad directors thought "oh we're onto something here" so they made many more adverts where kids adorably compare the clean feeling of Andrex to something ever so random like "a spoon in a circus" isn't it cute cause kids have big mad imaginations and a spoon or circus actually have nothing to do with feelings of cleanliness at all but in a child's imagination they DO. Oh little posh ginger girl you do say the darndest things. "Spoon in a circus" haha imagine that

FUCK OFF

"As clean as a man called David" was the first one.  I like to imagine the first one was spontaneous and then some knobhead scriptrwiter tried to emulate it, and every other advert they do thereafter falls flat.  The same goes for the Hariibo adults miming to kids voices one.  The first batch worked but later ones seem "off" somehow.

I don't mind those. Was there one where a kid appears and its voice is all sensible and grown up?

Mind you - I have a tolerance for Haribo jingles ever since the gorgeous French woman in my office years ago saw a packet on my desk and sang "Haribo c'est beau la vie, pour les grands et les petits,” and giggled.

There’s a series of ads on the radio for Cancer Research UK and Race For Life that are so annoying they threaten to put me on the side of cancer.

Jesus, the current Galaxy ad with the rapidly aging woman is a bit heavy for a fucking chocolate bar advert.

"Eat some Galaxy, YOU'RE GONNA DIE"

^ yes, it's extremely distressing. If it were my cancer ad that was shown next then I'd want a refund.

I'm trying to decide if the current Campo Viejo ads are intentionally odd.

The radio ones in particular. "I'm not a professional athlete, I'm a geography teacher".

It was bad enough when there was just one Marcus Brigstocke, now they both need to fuck off.

That's the new one out of Plebs I mentioned in the Gambling Advertising thread. He's got form too, he was the vampire in the What We Do In The Shadows ripoff Virgin gambling ads.

There's an ad (for Godknows what featuring some dancing things that appear to be a cross between Telebugs and Teletubbies) which features the Umpa Lumpa song which is annoying because, either, a) The music is ineptly performed, or, b) They changed the music deliberately to avoid paying royalties, but they've hardly changed anything, it's blatantly the same tune.  Can you really avoid paying royalties by playing a tune badly?  It's still the same tune.

OK I paid a modicum of attention to it this time when it was just on and I think it's back purely to take the mick out of the craft beer trend. Topical.
