What TV adverts annoy you?

Post by pogo on Wed Aug 14, 2013 6:25 pm

I suppose this would be aimed at uk tv watchers like myself.

Some adverts make me unbelievably (and unnecessarily) angry to watch them.

There is a 'pot rice' advert where a bear, for some unknown reason, sings to a guy in an office. The bear has ,for some unknown reason, a large quiff, and then, for some unknown reason, does a stupid shimmy out of camera shot. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Evil or Very Mad Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing What is the relevance?????
There was a similar one with a panda selling us 'bisquits' with a mafia style accent . WHY???? Whats a panda crossed with don corleone got to do with biscuits!

My wife cant stand the new merecats advert, the words they are singing along to 'ebony and ivory' are impossible to make out.

So, (opera singing insurance saleman aside, we ALL hate that) what adverts do you hate......or am I the only ad hating weirdo on here?? Laughing Laughing

Hi folks
I know i should not like loose women being a fella but i have to say i really enjoy listening to the other halfs thoughts and points of view. I know i must get out more. Adverts well every so often a really good one comes along but you have to watch an awful lot of rubbish till one does.

I dont really watch them lol. Its a running joke between my male friends and I that if you have time to watch them, you have too much free time (sorry Simmo, none taken I hope Embarassed 

An advert that always made me laugh was for yeallow pages. A guy returns to his flat. His neighbour, an attractive young girl greets him saying that he has had a break-in. In his flat is turmoil, rubbish, furniture overturned etc. He acts like he is really upset at a break-in.

It flashes back to how this guy lives, like a pig! He grabs his coat on the way out, it overturns a chair, he leaves it, the front door doesnt close properly.

He is then seen secretly looking at YP, and phoning a cleaner in a whisper, for a weekly clean. At this point, the girl comes out of his bathroom and says 'You wont believe what theyve done in your toilet '. He has a look of shame on his face.
Can't beat a bit of toilet humour!Laughing

Many books have been written about toilet humour in english. I didnt know the Dutch were into that as well.  You learn something new every day.

In the uk, there are few houses with wood burners, so there is no problem with the direction of your furniture, it points at the TV. Here in rural France, with a woodburner in every home, this poses a real problem as to which item your seating to face. I have come up with the solution, and have the TV next to the woodburner. I am wasted on building works, should have been an interior designer.  Laughing Laughing

Hi folks
The Spec saver adverts are the best i've seen (but i have to put me glasses on to see them)
The Shepherd sheering his sheep.
The Vet with Cat.
My Memory is not what it was but i think they had a few more as well as those two. But i have to agree most are a load of rubbish and awful and bare no relationship to the product that is being avertised.

Redburmese. I have no TV but I do watch programmes now and again on TV'replay. And unfortunately the worse thing is you are often subjected to the same advert again and again and again. If they are short you get it repeated until the time allocated for the adert is used up!!! You cant skip them either. As you say mostly selling cars or the latest is Hotels.com
