The new haribo one with the singing family is painful to watch.
The BMW 1 Series advert.
get to fuck
is genius. i enjoy good marketing/advertising and this is a prime example.
a narrative, funny accents, cute animals, spin off website, merchandise.
advertising might depress a lot of people, but if its your job to come up with a good advertising campaign to raise awareness of your product/service, you'd be mightily pleased with it.
plus the meerkats are cute - admit it.
They should've given the campaign a rest in mid-late 2009.
but it's one of the best ad campaigns I have ever seen, Compare The Market's brand value has increased almost infinite amounts since.
other than it's some kind of take away/sit in restaurant, and there seems to be a beat running though it, everything is in time to a beat, even when the woman is taking the order, and she's like 'so that's a plate of jazzy chicken and a slab of meaty beef, ok?', but it sounds like she's going to rap or something, but it doesn't rhyme, and it just stops in the middle of the line with 'ok?' and I'm left thinking, WTF was that even meant to be?! every time I watch it I'm all like JFC, what the fuck was that?
fuck this advert.
but that's daytime satellite TV so it goes without saying
it's so, so bad
man on plane having back ache, he asks the stewardess for something and she gives him bayer "OH NO I'M NOT HAVING A HEART ATTACK! *EXAGGERATED HEART MOTION* IT'S MY BACK!" just something so irritating and obnoxious about it. remember when you knowingly infected loads of people with HIV? pricks.
where the guy rides around town stalking women on the street and through their windows a bit creepy.
its always on in the cinema, an abomination
but the one where the woman catapults her partner off the sofa and out the window.
that twee tosser deserves to have his ukulele wrapped round his head and then be pushed in front of an oncoming train.
It is my personal opinion and I guess that's just me.
The one with urban yoofz being all lairy on an inner city street?
It was on in every advert break, but I haven't seen it for the last few nights. Not that it was bad, it was pretty well edited, but I wondered whether it had been pulled in a somewhat OTT reaction to recent events.
far too long and shrill.
With those rubbery old people puppets. Sick.
as to if he had eaten the last of a certain type of sweet. I don't use this word often, but whoever thought up that ad is a cunt.
but a lazy cunt who just watched Will Ferrel's 'Good Cop, Baby Cop' on Funny Or Die. Like all ad execs, then, just feckless twunts with funny hair trawling YouTube for "inspiration". Trust me, I work with these pillocks.
That fuckin confused.com singing woman. FUCK OFF!!!
Also the sodastream things before friends on E4. 32 flavours!!!! You little scrote.
'No wonder my friends call her a yummy mummy...' Eurgh.
Yeah, you should tell a teacher about that.
Especially since she's WELL cross-eyed.
I thought I was the only one who noticed them.
Why are all the objects pixelated or are they supposed to be made out of Lego or are they pixelated and made out of Lego? And the tag line annoys me 'Order online today, enjoy today'. Ok, so I can order it online but to enjoy today I have to go and pick it up from the store...a bit like...oh...I don't know NORMAL SHOPPING, so really I might as well not go online and just go into the fucking store.
a wasted journey because they are sold out of the "dream product" you want. Me? this happens 3-4 times a week
the 10 biggest cocks in advertising
Alfa Romeo Guilietta adverts with Oooma Thurman. They're just ghastly.
Also, 'I am Guilietta. And I am such stuff as dreams are made on.' Fuck off.
forever and always
not sure if it's for Disneyworld or Euro Disney
The whole kids hearing that they're going
haven't seen it for a while though
where that sexless freak of a husband is "too excited" to get to sleep
with the jizzhosing gelatinous firemen and the awful rendition of Flashdance.
the 'real life' people they have on there seem to be a little too intense and scary. A bit like Lindsey Naegl. 'Hows your July? Mine's terrible. Let's do something in August.'
Their adverts always seem to come across as slightly creepy.
so I’ll nominate an advert they show in the cinema. It’s about 10 minutes long and involves a twatty guy catching boats between Mediterranean islands, seducing and then sleeping with a different girl each time. I assumed that it was a sexual health campaign, but no, it’s for a Spanish beer.
So yeah, that one.
Tonight, tonight, tonight, I want to be with you tonight...
I found that one strangely mesmerising.
where the whooping, call centre manager-looking, Top Man-suited fuck-face storms into the bathroom of a gym with a film crew in tow and forces assorted thugs to shave on camera and look mildly surprised at how supernaturally close a shaving experience they're having.
Oh yeah good shave. FUCK OFF.
and they're wrestling or something.
but it involved a really longwinded story completely irrelevant to the product and company it was advertising. The tagline was 'It's all about the detail' or something. Positively dripping in "creative" smugness juice.
dresses in a suit and walks moodily towards a camera surrounded by lens flare to the soundtrack of a vacuous droning voiceover about 'freedom' and 'spirit' and 'the night' before a big close up of an aftershave bottle. As you say, sickly 'creative' pretension is a thousand times worse than awkward, feckless stupidity. Those adverts cost an absolute fortune and are advertising nothing more than how nice a small glass bottle will look on your shelf.
Oh yeah. You do it how Old Spice does it.
I'M ON A BOAT.
I hate that smug twat that talks over the top.
with the wacky execuwankers
'Great we've done it, he's going home for the day. What should we do?'
'We could go to the pub for a bit and then just go home early?'
'Yeah nice one Spengler, let's put the match on here, stay in the office and have a little dance and drink this syrup'
have the American equivalent of what we'd recognise as a "WKD side"
where they're informed that their boss won't be coming back to work after the psychotic episode they gave him caused him to blow his head off with a shotgun.
is Andrew, the camp one from The Trio on Buffy The Vampire Slayer
'cause there's one shot where it reaaaaally looks like him, but others where it doesn't and i wasn't sure
I must say, he never struck me as a Nascar fan...
(I was lame enough to Google 'Tom Lenk Pepsi' the first time I noticed the resemblance)
where they make up a fake news broadcast about the end of the world so that one of them can fool a pretty woman into having sex with him,
putting on my moral outrage hat, that's sex by deception or even rape. Coke zero, enjoy after a sweaty sexual assault.
Turning into a variety act or collapsing into a pile of dust are far more interesting than the banal office banter at the end - 'yeah yeah, can't complain' - that's because YOU'RE A FUCKING NOBODY SON!
but I still have nightmares about those 'zoom zoom' car ones.
every time they came on, I would say "I go buy Toyota?"
Every time. This is my joke so don't steal it.
Do you thing many T4 viewers have bought one?
PS You shouldn't talk to yourself when you're watching the Hollyoaks Omnibus, it's weird.
but I imagine if you saw one and peered inside, they're all driven by haircutted teen-adults laughing about something Steve Jones said in 2008.
please do not steal it
where he's taking the piss out of his own advert. self-referential toss.
"Is the squirrel relevant? The squirrel's not relevant" amused me gently.
Makes me really want to play/watch football.
Also that recent one with Keeley Hawes bleating on about all her wonderful quirky possessions then she goes `oh and yeah my wonderful coffee machine (or whatever it is) it's amazing... what you're filming an advert for it right now as I talk!`
I dumped Keeley after that.
ones with meerkats.
Because you can't go to zoos anymore without some cunt going "eeeess alexander! simples!!!11"
hope they all get fired.
You're a bad man.
For bet 365.
I just prefered him standing on the screen and " 'Old up... The latest odds are on screen naaaah"
Because no actual mobile phone advert looks like that so it's just a misplaced parody of something else.
sort of demonstrating all the activities you can do with points as he walks towards you. Fucking dreadful.
Who has hidden some in a box...Here is a picture (doing this on iPhone so might not work)
by just sticking a japanese guy in it = instant wackiness.
the current one with the lads in the office convincing their manager he's worked too hard is particularly annoying
which makes me die a little inside.
to be believed, amazing stuff
but i thought was actually for some kind of luxurious fabric softner
overly smug and the guy in it appears to have no upper lip and a creepy gaze
BRUV AMMA WHOLE UVA KETTLE OF FISH, THOU SHALL NOT MESS WIT DIS
and then the wee girl who body pops down the street with her posse, shrieking away
makes everything seem so awful
a whole two weeks before the riots. I hope they pull it.
I hear them every other ad break
That is another nomination.
I feel I might be wandering around the house singing "KTC Pure Butter Ghee" tomorrow :/
seriously, what kind of vacuous beige turd of an individual are they actually pitched at?
This is the worst.
Nothing else in the world has quite the same ability to fill me with PURE AND ABSOLUTE FURY in the space of thirty seconds. Extraordinary
Mainly because the guy definitely says Black Bean when he introduces him. Shit's amateur.
I think the most annoying thing about it is the idea Vernon Kay's mum is looking after the health of his heart meaning he will be with us for years and years to come.
where some dickhead dog does a stupid little speech on behalf of a blokey bloke who can't express himself lol we;re all like that aren't we, blokes?
at the very least it's being original
and acting rather stupid is original for an ad?
the focus of the ad is clearly the little dog producer/mc
I hope men don't become like over-sensitive feminists otherwise I'd hate to be labelled a man
and that ''I'll tell yer friends yer fridgid'' one seems to be back.
And that includes ads on the Tube etc for it
but they had the sort of lame jokes like 'I've lost 12 stone' 'So you dumped him then'
they are at the very least original
just the one where they're all 'YOU HAVE TO MARRY YOURSELVES TOGETHER" and it has all those weird rapey undertones.
It's basically like a rape version of those old John west adverts. 'LOOK AN EAGLE'.
Matt Berrys voice is amazing
