    Advert cliches.
    There seems to be trend at the moment with adverts which usually fall into two trends.

    Banal cgi advert - advertisers who still think its cool to sell us prodcuts using lowgrade cgi adverts...hello, the smarty advert was over 10 years ago..move on! British gas adverts are guilty as well with people living on there super mario galaxy inspired spheres. Oh and dont get me going on Barclays adverts..for fuck sake haven't they done this to death!

    Also Pretend retro adverts: you know the ones with faded color film with warm summery filters usually accompanied by a folky ukelele strumming over the top. If a man is in the advert he will usually have a shabby haircut with an obligatory beard for that authentic seventies feel. Recent one that springs to mind is the McDonalds advert where the guy gets a door slammed in his face. Rant terminated

    Another two retro adverts that annoy me are the one with the woman in the kitchen with her daughter, going on about washing up liquid and the other advert with the twenty something sitting in his chair and going about how much he's enjoying a tv programme and how good the f****** weather is outside and how he'd like to watch tv in his garden!

    Where did this thing about football players being 'unplayable', meaning a good thing come from?

    I heard someone saying it a few weeks back, that someone was unplayable. I thought they meant he was shite.

    Seems to mean they are so good it is impossible to play against them.

    Every girl I ever kissed I was thinking of a pro footballer.

    When you've just payed your bill in a supermarket and people say would you like a loyalty card ?to which you say "No" Then they say would you like some money back ? which you also say no to. I feel really mean and guilty saying no all the time,

    Losers who throw their toys out of the pram over reviews like in the recent sonic game comments. Just because the review score is not to their liking, they have a little mental breakdown. Also its not always possible to play the game yourself (lack of demos and lack of places to rent) not that they understand that. When you see multiple reviews saying its bad or plain average, its good sign it is.

    Serves them right when they buy the game in denial and discover for themselves if it is shit...

    I hate people that moan about how certain reviewers always get reviews wrong. If you know you have different tastes to a reviewer then find one that has similar tastes to you. Or just compensate for the differences in your opinions. If the reviewer repeatedly moans about linearity and you like the direct approach then factor that into how you interpret the review.

    The out of town centre in Bristol is called The Mall, pronounced the same as Pall Mall.

    Which reminds me of something that annoys me - the current 30s/40s retro trend among all shitty stocking fillers, no doubt a legacy of the whole horrific "Keep calm" outbreak. It's been building for a few years, but I thought I was going to be asked for some stamps from my ration book in John Lewis.

    People holding their phone under their chin whilst chatting away. Yes I know that they're using hands-free, but they look so fucking stupid.

    Mall sounds better, "Shopping Centre" lacks charm, but I guess it is in keeping with british woodenness.

    Every advert at the moment has a voiceover by John Simm, or someone attempting his Lancashire accent.
    It's very fucking annoying.

    A few years ago it was Sean Pertwee or clones thereof.

    "Finchy" seems to do all V/O work in ads,at least here down south.

    As far as I can tell there are only six people who do adverts in this country:

    Finchy
    Sean Bean
    Someone who sounds like Sean Bean
    Hugh Dennis
    John Simm
    That slightly fey, posh sounding guy from 'Im Alan Partridge'

    The masses being allowed to vote in talent contests that have expert judges on the panel. Let them decide who's best and teach us why you've made the decision so we know quality when we see it, instead of relying on the general public who know fuck all to make the decision.

    :)
