    Very glad to see the back of the BT advert where "I boro wyfy for thee Oleempeecs?" It made me cringe that British TV can still show ads with all the racial sensitivity of Mind Your Language. I wonder what music is best here? Gypsy Kings, innit?

    The new Costa coffee advert that lasts about 2 hours (probably only a minute, but it feels longer), with the decapitated (if only) heads singing. It's everything that's wrong with advertising today.

    Chanel with Keira Knightley and Joss Stone. Up itself pouty pose beige shite.

    That Roy Orbison one is annoying already.

    @Lukus I watched that and wondered what on earth it was going to be for, and then sighed when it ended. A waste of time and money on an idea that could have been done better in many many other ways.

    That advert is great! If anything it's too short, they should have lengthened the singing heads and put a Costa catchphrase at the end.

    Also liking the advert with the babies playing the theme to Come On Eileen iirc. Can't remember which company it is though.

    A tv series most people here wouldn't have heard of. I remember watching it way back and thought it was incredibly funny.....when I was 8 or so, but I saw an episode several years ago and it was like watching cars crash, repeatedly :o Love thy Neighbour was another series that seemed just good fun when first broadcast, but now..... O.O !

    @Dogme Both written by the same guy I believe. Supposedly Love Thy Neighbour was written to show the stupidity of being racist.

    Dear Mr Dyson, what the fuck is digital about a portable vaccum cleaner? Perhaps you mean it uses a brushless motor using controller logic like, oh, almost all your competition for the last god knows how many years.

    Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!

    @mal "Conventional motors work by passing current through their carbon brushes, making them spin. This produces sparks, heat and wasted energy.

    Dyson Digital Slim™ cordless vacuums are powered by the Dyson digital motor. Intelligent electronics constantly adjust a powerful magnetic field, so the motor spins at up to 104,000rpm. This creates the most powerful cordless vacuum."

    @RobTheBuilder I think he's saying that vacuum cleaners haven't used 'conventional motors' for years now. I'll bet many do, but you can always get ones that use a similar one to Dyson, so they shouldn't pretend to be unique.

    See also Apple pretending that their new white headphones have a radical design never thought of before.

    That "radical design" is leaking the majority of sound outside your ears so everyone else on the train is subjected to your shitty taste in music, right?

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

    @fogheart

    Yeah, brushless motors have been around for over forty years now, and I'd be amazed if other hoovers were still using brushed motors, as brushless power characteristics sound better to me (and also, I'm still able to watch telly while upstairs do their hoovering), but to be fair I don't know.

    Still, I consider claiming that brushless motors are in some way digital stretching it a bit. Sure, you could consider the logic circuit bit of it as a sort of very specific-purpose digital circuit, but it relies on very analogue feedback systems to keep it in sync.

    And also naming something 'adjective adjective' is fucking stupid.

    The McDonalds advert with all the different people chatting...

    See you later? What does that even mean?

    I hate it.

    The Chrome adverts annoy me for some reason.

    The Amazon ad. Stupid hyperbolic tech-evangelism moronic babble. Absolute garbage. 'our moon landing.'

    That Sky advert. Chris Hoys stance cracks me up every time.

    Give yourself £5 or ½ gig, you're worth it.

    Christmas adverts can fuck off. Fucking Christmas can fuck off. In fact I'm officially renaming it "Cuntmas". Happy fucking Cuntmas you fucking cunts.

    I think the new John Lewis ads are brilliant, but I also dislike them, possibly for being too good, if that makes sense. I resent having such a strong emotional reaction to an advert for a shop.

    @thelzdking Rubbish ones I agree. Although I love the absurdness of the Morrisons one, and neither Asda or Boots are as bad as usual.

    @kalel That's a very interesting reaction. A lot of agencies are trying to move away from shouting at people and head towards an emotional response (humour also kind of counts as emotional). That's the first time I've heard anyone say they don't want to feel an emotional reaction.

    Do you think you would feel different if it were a brand you liked already?

    I have a deep, deep hatred of the John Lewis adverts. In fact I hate pathos in adverts altogether, probably why I'm so enraged by Cuntmas ones.

    I hate this new trend in adverts for taking existing songs and rearranging (ruining) them with a slow, ponderous, melancholy acoustic track and miserable sounding female singer. It's really tiresome.
