Quote from: DelurkedToHelp on November 04, 2023, 12:15:33 AMWhy is there a raccoon in a British TV ad? They're not really a thing here. A squirrel, or a fox I'd get.The street sign the racoon climbs up/on looks more American too.

Quote from: Gurke and Hare on November 16, 2023, 01:15:08 PMUKTV Play's gone mad, it keeps feeding me the same advert on repeat. Just had the Paco Rabanne FAME one four times in a row.
Quote from: Des Wigwam on November 18, 2023, 11:16:16 AMHave got NowTv for a while so I get either LinkedIn ads - boring not worth commenting on - or Tinder Matchmaker. I have never been a Tinder or any dating app user and a bit unsure why the algo has targeted me - and it is relentless - but so be it.The feature they're pushing is that your mates can suggest some matches for you, I think. There are a couple of suitors who are left (?) swiped and then the one who gets approval says simply "The only fish you will see in my hands is sushi". The panel love this. What does it mean? Is it something the kids (people under 45) are saying now like "spill the tea"? It can't be the UK-centric 80s school boy fishy fingers thing - can it? Is it that he won't be out fishing all the time - which seems associated with a different age and demographic anyway. The whole thing is styled slightly as if it's set in Atlantis / under the sea but not particularly noticeably - so maybe it's saying he won't get off with mermaids maybe?Can someone tell me what it means?

Quote from: jfjnpxmy on November 21, 2023, 01:54:12 PMEvery single ad man who thinks they're being clever by making their advert about how it's too early for a Christmas advert should be fed, feet first, into a big meat grinder.The ensuing cunt mince should be used to make cheekily unseasonal stuffing, which is rammed right up the arse of Santa Claus in September.
Quote from: gilbertharding on November 20, 2023, 11:23:47 AMThey've been running for a while, but I noticed they just refreshed the Comfort Fabric Conditioner adverts, with the obviously completely unhinged people in the beds in the park, sniffing the duvet and reacting as if it's arousing powerful emotions.I often wonder how they make these adverts. That is, I wonder what the director says to the people he's hoiked out of the nearest drama school to get them to act like that, and how they decide what to use in the final advert. Presumably there are out-takes where the actors are even MORE deranged than in the final cut.I realise that adverts aren't supposed to be accurate reflections of real life (and that's kind of the point), but I am drawn to any advert where the participants seem unnaturally enthusiastic about the product.
Quote from: dissolute ocelot on November 18, 2023, 04:28:14 PMIt's apparently a common trope on dating sites for men to have a photo of themselves holding a big fish they'd apparently just caught, to show their prowess at killing animals, love of the outdoors, and bonus if it's somewhere exotic. Posing with drugged tigers also used to be popular but I think even the dimmest men eventually realised that was a bit shitty. Fuck fish, tho.
Quote from: gilbertharding on November 21, 2023, 05:39:25 PMIsn't that a bit close to the trope Marks and Spencer tried recently of acknowledging that some people don't like Xmas, causing all the worst dickheads on the internet to wilfully construe it as them wanting to cancel Xmas? Dangerous game, giving them something to shout about.
