the first for the overwhelmingly patronising tone, and the second for how fucking smug the woman sounds when she sings that godawful name 34345634632 times.
any other nominations?
yes. it's terminal.
ive seen them. lovely
giving up fags = taking up motorbike riding. interesting idea..
i mean, a mute at LEAST.
also: that one where batman climbs up the scaffolding before falling to his stupid, drunken death.
and the one with that "julie knew her killer" stuff.
that batman advert is really, really funny.
let alone scaling some dangerous scaffolding. the guy does flips like he's a russian gymnast!
2) Every advert ever.
I love that first advert. It makes me want to smoke more, just looking at her. She's a minx.
but what is the second advert (workblockage)
with that smug 'fluffy puppy' wanker Mickey is surely the worst advert committed to tape. I've never felt so riled by an advert.
The Picture Loans adverts give it a run for its money, though. Personally I prefer this version:
i calmed down about that advert after i read charlie brooker's thoughts on it. but yeah, well annoying.
"yeah! i'm on the phone to john from picture!"
YOU CAN'T USE THAT SENTENCE. NO ONE KNOWS WHO JOHN IS AND NO ONE KNOWS WHAT THE FUCK 'PICTURE' IS EITHER.
also, is there anyone here whose life is so devoid of action that they film their husband phoning a loan company for kicks? didn't think so.
is when he asks his wife how much they want to borrow like it's nothing. 'You want to borrow £25k? Why the devil not, it's not as if the interest repayments are going to cripple us for years to come.'
And notice the look of terror on his wife's face when he goes to lob the football in her mush at the end. Domestic violence or what?

shampoo adverts really annoy me as well.
"so, right, if we just blind women with a load of made-up words, we'll sell loads!"
those grinning idiots in the back of the taxi make me want to kick their faces off.
on his computer. He still looks too young to drive, lolz
I can't imagine how depressed those actors must have been when they walked on set and saw that the 'car' they'd be using was actually just a piece of cardboard. It's like Neil Buchanan was made their head of marketing or something.
I love the song, not a single line ryhmes. Brilliant.
It's all gone it's all gone."
"What's gone dear"
But I couldn't find it. But I foundthis and it made me lol
Maybe I'm wrong, but they seem to have created a nickname from nowhere - no one I know even says SoCo. Twats.
What's that other one?
"It's not just a detergent, it's a SAFEtergent" - if it were tongue-in-cheek it'd be genius, but i doubt it is.
the ad makers were phoning in that one, and sniggering as the manfacturers bought it.
SoCo. Worst. Advert. Ever.
it's what they want to call it now.
makes me want to avoid Southern Comfort like the plague. The advert looks like some sort of bad acid trip as well
Now my jeans fit my booty
so fucking awful.
FACTS AND VALUE
how can anyone not like that one?
and they've edited out the bit about frosties hitting his plate?
like him being terminally ill, and his Kelloggs executive dad giving him the starring role in that advert as his dying wish. There was another one going round that he'd been bullied to the point of suicide because of the advert.
I mean, who thinks stuff like that up? It is a fucking awful advert though.
he got stabbed.
Thta's what i heared - which makes it true
