    A hotel in Barcelona. Yeah something like this but for two people. With separate beds? Sorry. More stylish. This one’s perfect. No way. Arrgghhhh. Stop showing that fucking advert.

    Oh wow - have you seen the 'user' versions of that pony advert?

    I just had 2 om them in the same ad break watching Shawn of the Dead on ITV2! The Run DMC and final countdown ones.

    Heres a mash up trailer of all of them!



    I prefer the elegance and simplicity of the original, as this has gone too far! :p

    The Joe hart one is bad, but Rory McIllroy's wooden acting in the Santander ad is beyond awful

    I like that advert, the bit with him eating the apple is quite funny.
    Button is a douche though

    @MadCaddy13 the apple is almost certainly the director trying to find a way to make his wooden acting seem a little less awful

    Wouldn't take much to better that campaign then would it.

    I hate the sky go adverts. They just seem like complete tits in the adverts, that they have managed to discover they can watch sky on the go
    I came here to say the same thing. I fucking HATE these adverts, it's such shitty cheap marketing that makes the people within look like fucking idiots.

    @Syrette I think the original ads were very very clever. Especially given one of the key aspects behind the campaign was to get people using a new search term to save on the money they were paying google.

    They have been going downhill of course, but at least they try to be likeable and amusing.

    That new Three campaign with the dancing pony (RANDOM!!!) is fucking abysmal. Hate it. Has made me hate a company I had no feelings on.

    You can just see the ad agency lot coming up with it. "INTERNET THINGS, SOCIAL NETWORKS, WACKY RANDOM HUMOUR!".

    FUCK OFF

    We've had a bit of hate for that one on the previous page. :D

    I find it weird people are hating on agencies that try and produce genuinely interesting ads instead of shouting at people for 30 seconds.

    I find it weird that you find that weird, especially given this is the 'Most Annoying TV Adverts' thread.

    If people find certain adverts annoying, they find them annoying - Doesn't matter how interesting the ad is really.

    Do you work in marketing by any chance? ;)

    @Syrette of course! I get people can find them annoying, but there are so many far far worse ads out there! I guess it must be the others are so bad that noone remembers them.

    @RobTheBuilder

    Any "annoying" can actually help a campaign, like you say, easier to remember them.

    It's a really terrible ad campaign though. They've tried to design a meme, it doesn't work that way.

    @Syrette indeed. But it's a short term gain that costs a lot!

    @ecureuil I think the agency involved are too smart to simply try and do a meme for no reason.
    The whole point is the three brand is designed for the Internet, so it makes sense to have an Internet themed ad.

    Nah I agree here. That advert is the exact type of shit people watch on youtube, so it's bang on really.

    Get bent.

    And so I get annoyed at it because it's the same kind of shite as people watch on yputube. The net is full of garbage, keep it off the TV plx.

    To be fair, a lot of the trash on tv isn't much better.

    I don't mind it at all. Although I have only seen it once. Via Facebook. So I guess the viral aspect is sort of working.

    It's been on loads, they have a few versions of it now. One with that Darude song playing and it's nightclub like, and another one with a rock song and the pony rolling around with a guitar. Saw a variation of it on every set of adverts when I was watching Comedy Central earlier, they're obviously pushing it pretty hard.

    Yeah, I think if anything is making it annoying, it's just how frequently it's being seen.

    Just posted a piece up about how bad most of the new Carlsberg ads are if anyone is interested:

    @RobTheBuilder Did you know that in 2004 Carlsberg bought Holsten Pils and six months later shut down the brand?

    That'd be irrelevent, except for the strapline of Holsten adverts:-

    "That calls for a Holsten..."

    So yesterday I saw a Bertolli advert where old women get their dog to tear a towel away from a youth, exposing him while they take a picture.

    Since when did sexual assault become acceptable humour in adverts?

    Since the Coppertone ad in the 40's or whenever it was.

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

    of course reverse that so it's an old man getting a towel off a woman....it'll be banned in 5 minutes.

    Same goes for the diet coke adverts, reverse the content and they'd get pulled very quickly.
