    The new BT adverts with the three students make me want to go on a machine gun rampage.

    Good on the dad for eating them like a normal human being.

    They're just biscuits. Fuck off.

    Edit: Custard creams and Bourbons are better anyway
    I was just heading here to rage about that one!! Get's me reaching for the mute button everytime.

    Someone needs to do a parody of it:

    "First you pick it.
    "Then you lick it - mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
    "Then you roll it.
    "Then you flick it"

    Only bogeyo

    Also, why the need for the fuck-awful cringeworthy paedo porn sex noise?
    Same with the Betty Crocker-shite devils food cake advert.

    The one with the Bull that breaks into the house to eat curry with the family...the bit with the red napkin? yeah that's me the whole advert.

    Conversely, I really enjoy the Cravendale adverts.

    Aye, the girl is alright but not worth putting up with the overall awfulness of the ads for.

    My current annoyance is all those PPI claims ads. There's two in particular that grate me:

    Exhibit A - think it's just cos the guy seems so smarmy.

    Can't find a video for the second one but it has these cartoon keys which talk like rejects from that Essex show, 'you can claim back PPI babes, it's great babes' etc. which is basically taking the piss out of the people it's trying to sell to.

    Payday loans are also high on the list, with the Wonga ones with the puppets being especially annoying.

    New Haribo advert pisses me off.

    It's basically the Stanford marshmallow experiment, which was in the news against fairly recently. Almost every advert on TV these days is ripped off from something else, there's no original ideas. You just know someone in advertising at Haribo read about that experiment only recently and decided to use it for a new advert.

    No good original ideas exist without then being ripped off by an advertising agency to sell some shitty product. As Bill Hicks said: Quit putting a goddamn dollar sign on every fucking thing on this planet!

    Dunno if I've seen that new haribo one but the older shitpiece they did with the little girl saying "look into my eyes!" pisses me off just thinking about it.

    Also, the Pantene one. Zowee! The shampoo company did tests! Including research from NASA? Wow! It must be good then! Because NASA was established primarily to find the cause of split ends.

    Oh yes, this one. Also for the exchange:
    Scientist: 'We apply 10000 brush strokes', indicating video of machine
    Presenter: /smarmy 'So you didn't brush them yourselves!'
    Scientist: /flat No.

    I'm rather suspicous they're taking the piss out of themselves there. Damnit, this sort of thing shouldn't be allowed. I don't want meta in my ads.

    Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!

    "Blood in your pooooo?"

    The voiceover in that advert makes me cringe and shudder every time. Why does he have to say 'poo' for starters? And why does he have to say it in such a ridiculous way?

    That presenters old show 10 Years Younger was much the same as this advert so I'm guessing it's serious.

    Because the great unwashed would probably be confused by words like faeces or stools.

    "Uuuur... why would checking what I sit on tell be about dat bowel cancer thingy?"

    That Colman's bull can fuck off as well. Is he supposed to sound like Boris Johnson or was that an unhappy mistake?

    I'll never get my Orc looking the same again.

    I saw them shooting that 'girl on the platform smiled' ad. It was at Sutton Station and they were all moping around with their lights tutting at the inconvenience of all the commuters getting off the train.

    If I had known then, what I know now, I would have thrown the director onto the line for what he was about to inflict upon humanity.

    O2 have taken a beautiful version of one of the songs I remember most fondly singing in primary school... and stomped all over its innocence by commercialising the lyrics. You heartless bastards :'(

    @MetalDog

    Whoa. Every time I see that ad I think of Sutton station! I thought it was just generic coincidence. I will now have to think of you too as I hold you personally responsible for allowing it to happen.

    FCUTA!

    This one annoys me, with the terrible fake couple and their not remotely believable frolicking. And what's with the guy's creepy face about 4sec in? It kinda reminds me of Vic Reeves doing the leg rub routine on shooting stars.

    To change the pace a bit, I think that National Lottery advert about the good causes they give to is excellent. Clearly had a bit of money spent on it, a good idea, and pretty moving to boot.

    P & G

    (maunfacturers of: Ace, Bold, Fairy liquid, Ariel, Ambi-pur, Daz, Flash, Febreeze, Dreft, Tampax and Pringles)

    Proud sponsor of Mum's.

    (So skivvy, go fetch me salty potato snacks so I can get obese troughing them down & when you're done with that please clean this shithole you call a house while I draw on the walls with crayons)

    Also I wonder if they're as proud of the life insurance policies they hold against the lives of the mum's they employ, so if the unfortunate event does happen they can cash in on it but the employee's families won't see a penny of it? Rant over.

    On Toms post above, agreed. Kinda harrowing to watch.

    Proud sponsor of Mums just as long as they buy P&G stuff.

    I don't know why, but adverts bring out the Rik in me - minus the rant at gyros...!

    The deodorant one with all the explosions is quite entertaining, adverts could do with more fire and explosions, however.......

    This was followed by another installment of those fucking meercats, and to really rub it in, they teased me with the notion the cunt was goin to die, thus ending this awful, awful run of ads. But nooo, the little bastard survived and we will have to endure another 5 years of this shite.

    I used to be indifferent towards meercats until the bbc started giving them names and human traits for that godawful meercat manor thing, then these irritating adverts started and reenforced my growing hatred of them.
    cunts..
