The new Kingsmill one.
Stop playing carrot-stick-jailbait with me.
there is really no point
And waiting for their adverts to finish is like waiting to get through passport control with the Gestapo
4od on the xbox is almost unbearable, especially if you are watching something fairly short
It's bloody brilliant.
the advert for painkillers that says something like
'at the match no one wants injury time'
because i know on my experiance there have been plenty of occasions when i have
because that man takes his kid to a football game, then when his back feels better, goes back to the stadium the next day. Two home games two days in a row?
on the front of 20 second youtube videos
Now that those daft perfume adverts seem to have disappeared since Christmas anyway.
However, the Thinkbox one with Harvey and Rabbit one :'D
<3 for how obviously Adam Buxton that is.
That pissing song that the idiot sings, CHRIST
clearly ain't that smart.
Just tell me what it does and how much it costs, I'm not interested in the ten-page backstory you've written for Paul Whitehouse's ten-second Fast Show reprise, neither am I on the edge of my seat to see if The BT Guy can win his wife back with his sensible choice of broadband provider.
Where the classic song 'Lovely day' by Bill Withers, is massacred beyond all reproach into a Wonga themed song. Makes me rage.
Fuck off trying to recreate the milk n cookies thing over here, especially with all that bullshit about twisting and licking.

Shit merkin bourbon.
You're just a shit merkin bourbon.
Shit merkin bouuuur-bon.
You're just a shit merkin bouuuuurbon.
They are, as you point out, just bourbons. And everyone knows they are shit biscuits.
bourbons are fine. oreos aren't fit to lick their boots.
they just break up and make a mess. I tried during university. I believe I was watching Blue Velvet at the time.
I like Oreos and I'm glad they've taken off over here, but I hate that they're encouraging people to lick them. It's gross.
always and forever.
that used to be shown in the ads during the football were good though. When DIY and home repairs stuff was show being integrated into Sunday League football.
I liked those.
Called 'On me shed'.
The idea was to chip a ball into a shed (with no roof) from the half way line. Presumably the prize was a shed or a kitchen or something like that.
What you've described is In Me Shed. Which sounds more exiting, but makes less sense.
it's got our name on it YOU FACKIN SLAAHHGG
STOP RUINING GOOD MUSIC YOU BELLENDS.
haribo advert, they use the most annoying kids, im usually not a violent man but i want to punch those kids in the face
sister about what she's wearing?
I do wonder about that ad. Seems to be inviting a sexual response towards school age girls.
But hey, this is the 70s so I guess that's fine.
Especially the indie bedwetter kinds with some famous song redone in a overly indie way to a really stupid montage of some 'tear-jerker' scene. Argh.
I haven't watched one properly since Christmas '11 when I did have control. I also do not own a TV. This 5 a day is all well and nice but they should really be promoting an advert free life above vegetables.
yeah this one
:'( a far greater tragedy than Hawkins / Go Compare.
"SMELL THIS" and they're like, "Oh it smells like a spring morning"
And then this woman is like "gimme" and I'm like "fuck off".
Yea, that one.
And DFS are their forever fucking SALE.
They all just seem to be dubbed so badly
finally bonds over a macdonalds.
but I actually think this, on its own, after all that typing is forty times funnier
well, it's more like 'one' than 'ones': just the same advert for some throat sweet, with a Noddy Holder voiceover, again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again... sometimes there times in a row between videos. Either their rates are too high out they've got the crappiest selling team in ad-land.
that made me laugh that aforementioned living shit right out of me.
STOP LISTNIN TO MA MUSIC
Not heard one for a while, but they KEPT offering to make a playlist to suit my mood. Cheers Volvo, when I need a company with no obvious connection to me, Spotify or music in general to decide what I'll listen to, you guys will be bang in the top 1000 I'll choose from.
and Ant and Dec with the fucking fish. Fuck off!!
Also I think French is a step up from fucking Clunes.
where she whispers throughout the whole fucking thing.
But then I really hate whispering - creeps me out.
I genuinely thought I was the only person that can't stand the sound of whispering. I have to mute it. Recorded whispering is the worst because it's too loud, like how loud talking is except it's whispering and it really sets me on edge.
to the tune of YMCA. Mute the telly every time.
Just embarrassing. Actually all army adverts. They're clearly aimed at simpletons and it's a bit depressing.
but yeah all army adverts are exercises in pretending you don't have to shoot other men in the head
the camera was uncomfortably focused on the sole woman in the group?
The whole thing reminded me of the Day Today war episode. Well Chris, as you can see there's the missile, cruising at around two thousand per second trying to locate the target soldier it's aimed at. There's the soldier. It goes in through the mouth. Down through the oesophagus. Into the stomach and there's the explosion.
there were people standing around the table as well, as if watching other people play cards is remotely interesting
Hang on, does that mean you were watching Take Me Out? For shame.
that gong guy was a chump
You get to do EVERYTHING in the forces, except shoot people...
I definitely don't.
about how army adverts exploit the insecurities of young working class people in exactly the same way that Al Qaeda cells exploit the insecurities of young Muslims.
Despise the living shit out of those adverts.
that happens to be the most cohesively I've ever worded it, usually in conversation I sound fucking mental because of morally outraged stammering
Which for some reason is twice as loud as everthing else on the telly
they're always horrible 'be different and free and live your life like it's a post-rock soundtracked montage of extreme sports and sunsets' motivational unrealistic silliness
getting his own game wrong
fuck. right. off.
What's scary is I can get two decent songs on for each advert break. Thats a long time.
it means see you later
fuck advertising commercial psychology
psychological methods of sale should be destroyed!
I get the sense she's supposed to be a bit thick but doesn't really say enough to confirm this, just talks about her dress being stained and her mum sending her some Ariel and now it's clean. And another girl sits beside her making one word comments and occasionally pulling a face. I get the sense she's supposed to be the smart sensible one but she doesn't say nearly enough to confirm this. As such I'm not entirely sure what kind of narrative the ad is trying to achieve so it might as well just be one person saying 'THIS CLEANS MY CLOTHES GOOD' to camera and would achieve the same ends.
it's you HAHAHA
where it pretends everybody with a cameraphone is a brilliant photo journalist capturing the most spectacular and amazing elements of humanity and nature, and not twats taking pictures of themselves with their tongues out.
then at the end it says "i need, no - i have the RIGHT - to be unlimited"
makes me want to brutally murder anybody on that network
I like old movies
Where they give a fairly mundane innovation on the car a fancy and exciting technology name.
Belongs in the 'made up product technologies' thread really, but whatevs.
and there was an advert that just went CHOOSE A TRAILER and then i had to click on one of four bullshit films that i had no interest in. Fuck you interactive advert, i just want the fucking ads to play while i go and make a brew FUCK YOU
I hate advertising companies' assuming that anyone actually gives a shit about advertising. Like those ones now where it says stuff like ''use Shazam for extra content'' as if people would voluntarily want to see more of a fucking advert.
Open letter to advertising bigwigs:
WE JUST WANT TO WATCH THE THING WE SAID WE WANTED TO WATCH. INVOLVE YOURSELVES AS LITTLE AS IS POSSIBLE PLEASE FOR GOD'S SAKE
and that not only do mums do all of this work their daughters positively love the idea of doing it with them.
the "proud sponsor of mums" slogan is like something out of Mad Men. I've really searched for the irony, but I don't think there is any.
He seems totally cool and 100% behind women's rights and stuff!
but is soundtracked by an acapella version of Don't Stop Thinking About Tomorrow and it's quite possibly the worst thing ever.
also all technology adverts where some arsehole hipsters do something supposedly creative and then share it with all their cocksucker hipster pals using some fucking gadget.
where a guy (greying?) is sitting around chatting about how his wife (Kate?) Stays young looking.
Fuck knows what the details are or even what it's advertising, but it's condescending in the extreme.
Think it might be that activia shit.
Awful on so many levels.
Makes me wanna break stuff.
seem to be really poor in terms of sound quality compared with the shows; it's really weird-sounding.
and I second the Kevin Bacon ones in the cinema. So painfully unfunny, like the Expendables 2 advert with Jay from the inbetweeners. FUCK OFF
Where the poor guy is just trying to book a hotel and his monster of a girlfriend keeps demanding they get better and more fashionable ones, and for whatever reason he's not just like "on second thoughts, I'll just go back to a single please."
And then they fall in the pool because they're carefree and crazy.
Maybe it's me being a tad obsessive but I would much rather mute every single time and put a song on, or if it's on the TV find another station that hasn't got adverts on, even if it's for 4 minutes. Sky sports news or even BBC for the weather.
I really hate how adverts are generally louder than the programs themselves.
I watched about three hours of telly this weekend and this advert was on about a dozen times. Wacky shit that goes on forfuckingever.
