I hate the cancer ads,my Dad and my Husband both died from cancer,I do not want reminding.

All part of the process of brainwashing the public in to accepting homosexuality as normal behaviour, the same as Lloyds bank showing a big poster of 2 men ? hugging with the caption "He said yes".

Fair enough these 'Prima-donna' footballers earning millions on advertising let alone playing are fit men and a lot faster than the lads i played with for 'Park Tavern' in early 70s but we were better

The car insurance one with the two muffins playing pool and the fat Welsh opera singer.

Then there is the Direct Line ones with the burke in the red American car. Both utterly banal.

Have you all seen the latest moppet commercial. In the back of her dad's car singing to some terrible disco racket while the AA man fixes his car. God Almighty, roll on death - give me a rest!

A good education was wasted on these  so called intelligencia who devised these infantile adverts.

In retrospect, drowning  at birth was the solution !

Apart from the occasional one that is genuinely funny or clever most of them are inane rubbish and more likely to have me avoid the product or the store than buy. The three worst things about ads on TV here are :-

  1. Repeating the same ad two or three times in the same break
  2. The increase in volume of some of the ads
  3. On the odd occasion when I see something that I may be interested in they do not tell you the price or where their store is and just refer you to a website - as if.

They have discovered that the more reaction it engenders the more memorable it is - and that's really the whole point.

No doubt about that Brew, but in my case the reaction is never to buy their bloody product ever again.

In many cases the ads are so weird that I actually struggle to work out what it is that they are advertising.

Recording and zapping through the ads works best on the odd occasions when I watch commercial TV

Can't say we ever watch live TV, we are about a week behind on catch-up, but you can skip the adverts, the news, not seen the news for years.

Give it long enough and some witless outfit will give awards to the makers of these purple adverts that most of us think are an insult to your intelligence. Any actor worth their salt would have nothing to do with this rubbish.

The new MoneySuperMarket advert with the slightly gay action man is brilliant

 

Love this advert, it always brings a smile when it's on. Much prefer the action man dollies to the Barbies anyway. thumbsup

 

My least favourite has to be without doubt, the 'Bog Off' adverts now with Pam St Clement. Previously with Jeff Brown. thumbsdown

Sickening the lot of it.

Hate the Wayfair furniture advert with Lorraine Kelly . 

I like her generally but that part in the advert where she's doing some exercise with the sweat-band lady and then the final scene where Lorraine is doing some sort of "dad dance" at the bottom of the stairs is cringeworthy.

Can't believe she needs the money that badly .
