Have Wallace and Gromit been mentioned yet? Pair of sell out twats.

You don't know what kind of pressure they might have been under.  It's very easy to bully plasticine.

new precedent for Peter Sallis being replaced by Ben Whitehead, who's been doing Wallace in lesser capacities for years (Blackpool Pleasure Beach Ride, video games and other shit)

they are primarily stop motion but I think there's some CG in there, surely. like when gromit drops through the ceiling. easier to render that than use a model
edit: actually i looked it again and i guess gromit is a fully animated plasticine model but filmed separately and composited in over the set.

There's an ad which I've realised makes absolutely no sense at all.  It's the one for Voltarol where the dog is annoyed at the Voltarol because it means its owner is able to take it for a walk and the dog doesn't want to go for a walk.  BUT DOGS ARE FUCKING OBSESSED WITH GOING FOR WALKS.

Back on a bank tip - I had the displease of seeing a new Santander advert with Ant and Dec in the cinema the other day. It really offended my senses.

Yeah...they're basically lanky cats. Although bear in mind that most of them have done enough running to last a hundred lifetimes, so fair fucks to them.

There's an Army recruitment ad on at the moment in which a young recruit is on some kind of exersize, and he's hallucinating old friends trying to get him to go out drinking, then one of his comrades comes along and reassures him, the hallucinations vanish and on he troops, the jist being that you can get temporary confidence from drinking, or real confidence from joining the military. Because squaddies are well known for their sobriety of course.

Am I the first to suggest that the advertising team behind the Oatly campaign need a really good dose of the plague?

Saw an ad for curing dementia or something in the cinema last night. Kid annoying his family, turning the tv off in the middle of a football match, using the hot tap when the mum is in the shower, jumping out at his sister in a scary mask, all to try and get them to swear, but they never do - 'OH SUGAR', 'OH FFU....FUDGE' etc. There's clearly a swear jar type scenario going on, you see.

Anyway, kid and dad go and visit grandad in an old people's home - grandad has dementia, doesn't recognise the kid. Kid is sad, dad consoles him at home and steps on a toy or something and lets out an almighty swear. Kid is like 'YES, pay up dad!' and proffers the swear jar, upon which is a label 'GRANDAD CURE FUND'

So the family have been desperately trying NOT to contribute to a cure for their grandad?! Is he a massive cunt or something?

The story is full of holes.

I quite liked the Trebor softmints one. With the son telling his dad. So there.

At school we always used to sing "Trebor mints are a minty bit stronger. Stick them up your bum and they last a bit longer."
They should put that in an advert.

Who is the woman in the new 'you might like' Aldi advert? I recognise her (probably from casualty or something) but it's driving me mad.

sounds plausible! I was thinking maybe she'd been in Grange Hill 30 years ago or something.

edit: Susannah Wise, she was in Casualty and Where the Heart is. Finally I can get on with my life.

Okay.  There was an ad on E4 in the last hour or so that used an orchestral piece from a film soundtrack.  I can't identify the film and I can't remember what the ad was for.  All I've got is ba da-da daaa - bap bada daaa daaaaa going  round in my head.

Help me.

My bitch Google helped - it's from Robin Hood Prince of Thieves[1].  Sanity retained.  Or at least a vague facsimile thereof.

Ah...was just about to suggest that (as it seemed to be the only soundtrack listed with the recent adverts on www.sounds-familiar.info). It's on that weird Starling Bank commercial.

See, this is why I love the Internet.  Without it I'd still be humming those few bars to myself and bashing my head against thirty years of audio memories.

I also love your avatar and probably always will.

Man watches car advert in car advert:
Ad in ad voiceover: "Introducing... The New Kia X-Ceed"
Man: "Is that the new Kia X-Ceed? Is it out?"

Course it's fucking out, you clopper. They're advertising it in an advert. They're not going to advertise it if it's not for sale, are they? "Introducing... the new Kia X-Ceed. It doesn't exist. We haven't made it yet. We just thought you'd like to look at some images of the car that might be coming out over the next twelve months or so..."

The fucking donger.

They do it with films and games.  Maybe he asks if it's out yet to suggest that he's a hip and happening man of the world.

Edit - or he thinks the car might be gay.
