You could try doing THIS.

All you need to do is record yourself telling them you are billing them for each call and record the calls in the future.

The Scarlett Johansson perfume advert. I have seen it six time today and wanted to punch the screen every time. "I like my lips, for kissing" "I do all my own stunts, even love making" what are you doing porn now (admittedly if that is the case I forgive this advert)? I think it is just the inane quality to the script for it which grates on me like a gratey thing.

Somebody seriously needs to give Paul Kaye more work, as those god awful bet victor adverts are doing my head in.

Even if it meant a sequel to Blackball, it'd be a price worth paying.

That perfume ad with Charlize Theron arriving at at fashion show. Partly because it's just one of those annoying fucking pretentious as fuck perfume ads. Mainly because it uses Grace Kelly and Marilyn Monroe's images to sell the fucking stuff. I really, really fucking hate that.

That new John Lewis ad with the snowmen!

Newspaper articles are going on about how moving and emotional it is...

It's not moving or emotional! It's two shaped piles of fucking snow! With shit stuck in it to make something like expressions! I hate snow!

It's even worse than the one last year when the kid could think of nothing else but giving his parents a present. Have these people EVER met a child?

Gotta calm down now... (deep breaths...)

I would say all perfume adverts which offer pretension over substance to be excretable.

I hate that advert too, especially those lines. What do they even mean? Lovemaking is a stunt for her? What, does she have a crash team standing by and people with fire extinguishers? Flame retardant sheets? Maybe she has to get special insurance if she wants to do some fucking because the risk is so high.

I am also adding the Brad Pitt one to the list. The same pretensions just with a scruffy tramp man rather than blonde haired lady woman with kissy lips.

Any toothpaste advert that pretends to be real life. I have to leave the room. They are so poorly scripted, acted, shot...everything about them is terrible. What angers me most, though, is some advertising 'creative' is being paid a bundle to come up with them!!! Rant over

Yes! That ad annoys me! Because your teeth squeak, but you also woke up with perfect hair and make-up!

Let's face it, every word that's coming out of your minty-perfect mouth is bullshit, isn't it?

There's a Dolce & Gabbana ad on at the moment which I find very annoying, as it makes the very pretty Scarlett Johansson look like an alien

The ad for the little device that rasps the dead skin off feet makes me feel sick. I have to look away as the ad treats us to close ups of skin flying off heels

Not an advert per se but that Celebrity Tool one on E4 where those blokes are singing is like fingernails on a blackboard. Also they play it about 786 times a day.

Febreze adverts. "it smells like Hawaii or something", "like a wine tasting room". What are they talking about? The latter in particular, Febreze makes your room smell like there is a load of booze in there which people have spat into buckets. Are these the best quotes they had?

It is frightening when the Go Compare adverts are now more irritating than when they had the bloke actually do the singing. These "saving the world" ones where they keep doing nasty stuff to the singing bloke are so much worse.

I hate their advertising campaigns and payday loan companies in general.

Yep, I can't stand these adverts. I don't like the company either as these insurance comparison websites are part of the reason car insurance keeps going up.


Another ad I hate is for some aftershave, not sure which, with some random bloke at a press conference and he says something like "I'm not going to be the person I'm expected to be any more" and then all of the walls of the room fall down. What is that all about?

Oh my God, you're joking?! The one with that French bloke who played the young Hannibal Lecter?? Oh Marty. Why? You can't need the money!

I could rant in here all day but I'll keep it brief.

ANY perfume ad with celebrities talking shite. And that means you, Brad "Inevitable" Pitt and you, Scarlett "I like my lips...for kissing" Johansson. You make me want to smash my standard lamp through the screen. And again, you can't need the money, so why are you inflicting this shite on us??

One that's really annoying me just now is the M&Ms ad where the woman, sat watching the telly, turns to her boyfriend/husband/serf and says, "Hey babe, I could really do with a snack." And off he dutifully trots, scouring the kitchen cupboards for something to fill her face, no word of objection. And when he returns with a comically large cartoon M&M in a bowl, she regards it as though he has served her a Findus horse lasagne on a bed of dead spiders.

If she said that to me I would, at best, say "Eh, what's wrong with your legs?" and, at worst, point out how rude she was being before flouncing out the room in floods of tears (well I am female).

What ever happened to manners? To 'please' and 'thank you'! Nnnnrrrrggghhh!

Saw one yesterday with Kerry Katona advertising one of those Payday loans companies. What the actual blue fuck? That's like Roy Castle advertising Marlboro.

It's just some overly mushy turd that plays on our emotions so the company can make us all think that,hey,buy a McD's Burger and everything will be fine in the world.

That new Nivea ad, where a young woman sprays on some deoderant because she's about to do something big and nerve-wracking and she...

Oh wait, no. She's just in the audience while her boyfriend goes on some quiz show. Because women aren't capable of doing anything THAT clever.

Nevermind, she looks at him with shag-happy eyes at the end. Obviously, the deoderant worked. All's well.
