    The Go Compare ads annoy me especially.

    'We made a campaign everyone hates! We'll... stop it and make fun of it!'

    It's like releasing an annoying pop song and then releasing a second annoying pop song about the first one, as if the second one somehow makes up for it. It doesn't. They're all shit.

    And he's on pretty much every voice over going at the moment. Despite being absolutely shit at them.

    Awful advert.

    EDIT: Actually I'm on about the 'Compare the Market' advert.

    Sky Broadband with Jennifer Aniston. Horrible annoying advert which cannot be unseen.

    Sorry!
    The whole trend of American celebrities advertising UK products is pretty embarrasing. Why get Kevin Bacon and then make him talk about Jedward?

    The Kevin Bacon thing is really weird. Yeah, the "degrees of bacon" thing is well known on the internet, but it a) doesn't really work and b) must make fuck all sense to anyone who hasn't heard of the degrees of bacon thing.

    These Money Advice Service adverts are completely cringe-worthy. Can't stand them.

    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.
    this, absolutely this. I was complaining about that just the other night, it's fucking lazy and disrespectful.
    Seat Toledo the latest in a long list of shitty adverts doing this, and possibly the most excruciating (in that the women's voice is really hard to listen to without wanting to cut her vocal chords out with a rusty knife) with a cover of Fleetwood Mac's Don't Stop.

    That Guardian 'we've trademarked the Weekend' advert is the most desperately awful and soulless middle class travesty and I find it honestly depressing that they think the middle section of it is somehow aspirational. Here's a play-by-play with LB subtext text.

    Open shot: vista of London, leafy, suburban, no council flats or poor people. Crane shot pans round with a bombastic OTT Hollywood style monologue about how the Guardian 'brought you Monday to Friday' and are now branching out into the weekend.

    SUBTEXT: LOOK HOW SUPERIOR WE ARE (AND OUR READERSHIP, GO ON READERSHIP, PAT YOURSELVES ON THE BACK FOR BEING SUPERIOR) AND HOW WE CAN POKE FUN AT MAINSTREAM ENTERTAINMENT BECAUSE WE'RE NOT THAT, WE'RE EXCLUSIVE LIKE MARKS AND SPENCERS.

    A couple, who let their relationship fall apart some time ago, sit in their airless characterless spotless kitchen in silence reading from their individual bits of a weekend paper. No kids, no pets, nothing of any kind. They could be statues.

    SUBTEXT: LOOK AT THE SUCCESSFUL LIVES OUR READERSHIP HAVE. WHO WOULDN'T WANT TO BE LIKE THEM? (Insert: this is depressingly exactly what the ad is aiming for. I couldn't think of anything worse than being these people, they look like the sort who have a passive aggressive sniping match followed by a screaming row if the husband forgot to take the Brie de Meaux out of the fridge in time for it to warm up for the dinner party)

    Woman: 'There's a new salmon recipe we can try later.'

    SUBTEXT: I HAVE NOTHING LEFT TO SAY TO YOU. I KNOW YOU HATE SALMON, MAYBE YOU SHOULD HAVE THOUGHT OF THAT BEFORE YOU LET THAT SKANK FROM THE OFFICE SUCK YOUR TINY SHRIVELLED COCK YOU THOUGHTLESS BASTARD.

    Man: 'Hmmmm'.

    SUBTEXT: FUCK YOU, YOU RANCID BITCH.

    Man: 'We can use up the rest of that rice.'

    SUBTEXT: OF COURSE WE WOULDN'T HAVE ANY SPARE IF YOU COULD FOLLOW THE FUCKING INSTRUCTIONS AND I BET THOSE GUYS DIDN'T COME TO THE PARTY BECAUSE YOU WERE SO SLOW RESPONDING TO THEIR CHRISTMAS CARDS. IF I DON'T GET THAT PROMOTION YOUR MONTHLY GARDENING ALLOWANCE IS GOING TO DISAPPEAR. COW.

    More mock bombast, 'We bring you the WEEKEND'.

    SUBTEXT: LOOK HOW FUNNY WE ARE, AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA IT'S LIKE TOP GEAR LOL

    Man pointing to a flip chart 'What we've done is trademarked the weekend.' Execs nod.

    SUBTEXT: THIS WAS THE MOMENT OF GENIUS. WHAT A COUP. ALSO LOOK HOW CLEAN AND MODERN OUR OFFICES ARE, AND HOW ETHNICALLY DIVERSE OUR BOARD MEMBERS.


    Aaaannnnnywayyyyyy. I can't think what's worse: how facile the ad is, or the fact that their 'target audience' as represented in the ad is, for them, 'aspirational' and not 'godawful'. Someone link to it in here, you'll see I'm not even joking.

    In conclusion: fuck the Guardian.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    Anyone else the new McDonalds advert where the magic of a piss-poor 99p burger brings together a guy and his partner's son? Horrendous.

    The last few Saturday editions of You've Been Framed I've recorded have had no adverts from third parties whatsoever - just a couple of promos from upcoming ITV programmes. Granted, it's only YBF and it's on a little early, but it's the start of the ITV1 prime time. Even ITV4 gets shitty adverts at shitty times. How come a programme on ITV1 at almost prime time can't get advertisers? Have they priced themselves out of the market?

    Maybe it's because no one wants to associate themselves with You've Been Framed, or the audience for that shit is so tiny it's not worth the cost.

    It's pretty amazing it's still on telly. If you want to watch videos of cats, laughing babies or people falling over you can do that easily on YouTube.

    Their ads are just terrible ("SEE YOU LATAAAAAAAAH"), but this new one is proper shit. The whole thing is so grim, from the arrogant idea that McDonalds can save a potentially broken home to the slogan "We all have McDonalds in common".

    What everyone in Britain has in common is poor-quality American fast food, apparently. :(

    Without TV Burp, it's the only way I can get my Harry Hill fix at the moment.

    Yeah, it does my head in that the image mcdonalds try to project is the odd burger for marathon running families.

    If that were the case the ceo would get fired; their target is a legion of msg addicted fatties, to break even.

    Lower than the Iceland advert? I think so. Here is her explanation for why she did it, which no doubt was written entirely by her, with no help at all from CashLady dot com.

    But I can hold my head up high, I'm paying off my debts and the one thing I know now more than anything is how to make ends meet for me and my family. And every now and again for people like me when emergencies come up that might mean getting a short-term payday loan.
    Yeah, right.

    Sorry mal, but recording You've Been Framed has to be one of the funniest, pointless things I've heard in a while!

    All the eurogamers who actually play with each other on xbl rather than just post pseudointellectual pc handwringing bollocks on the forums, love the shit out of biggy.

    Just seen the Dead Space 3 ad. It's terrible. Necromorphs, Phil Collin's 'In the air tonight' and a Kinect plug. Voiceover from the voiceover cliche factory. Terrible.
