What adverts do you see on tv that annoy the hell out of you for one reason or another?.....I'll kick off with the Paypal advert from a few months ago for the reason that her accent and certain terms she uses p**s me off!

Nice to know that if I 'd lost my scarf, I might have got something from these fuckers.

As I said during the TV thread, but I did spend a month in the US this year.   Some exposure was unavoidable.  My absolute favourites are medical ads.   They spend about 15 seconds explaining what it might fix, then 1 min or so explaining how it might fuck you up.

Anything that is so clearly made on the cheap to be shown in multiple territories around the world, and is then so badly dubbed afterwards that it makes everyone look like characters from Monkey or The Water Margin.

I can't find the Lenor equivalent, but this is one of my pet hates at the moment.

Who is this woman? What is a laundry expert, and how do you qualify?

And yet I recognise that the name has stuck in my mind, and I also understand what a scent-booster does, and I have been made to remember that I can put as few or as many of fucking these little things in my wash as I want....

...argghh. I'm being manipulated.

"You buy one, you get one free. I said you buy one, you get one free"

That or anything about claims management companies, be it injury lawyers or mis-sold PPI.

You mean the balding gentleman with the wizard sleeves?

I can hear his voice saying that right now. 

Can't remember the name of the company though - notsogood.

Can't be arsed to find it, but the Disney one where they try and guilt parents into taking their children to america by saying that your 13 year old daughter will soon hate you and will be fucking all the boys in school so make the most of this time whilst she is still a child and have some fun.

Yes.....cant stand this advert. It actually has nothing to do with the company or product. All that happens is that a bloke loses a scarf and by chance someone finds it and it is returned. What has that got to do with the company or the products they offer? It's bullshit. Grrr!

Arrggghhhh, now I have that stupid song in my brain, off to the "What are you listening to?" thread.

I dunno what it's supposed to be advertising but the one where that bloke sings that stupid song in an irritating voice and none of the words rhyme or scan properly.

Any advert that uses kids voices in place of adults. The current Haribo advert is an excellent example of this.

Oh God, why do they do it?! I can't believe it helps their sales. But I guess it must do otherwise they wouldn't keep running it.

All the "Bond" ads during Homeland last night. Relentless. Now I will make a point of not buying any of their shit or watch a Bond film ever (cannot actually remember the products and never watch Bond films anyway).

Bloody hate Bond films. All you hear at the moment is Bond this, bond that! I know, I know, there is a Bond film coming out, but still, it seems to have push Star Wars into the background somewhat!!! 

Also my 13 year old has been singing all different Bond themes, including the new one... Well humming not singing! 

This sounds a little points of view like, but still ha ha.
