All loan ads (First Choice, Picture..etc)
Shelias Wheels
Royal Bank of Scotland Ads
Halifax
Frosties
Weetabix
The Nissan one, where people are making noises like the car.
Honda ad, where the guy is singing all the way through
All Car Insurance ads

In general I would pay extra just not to have ads on sky and itv, beacuse they are all pretty annoying. The only ok ads for me right now are the orange ads which are always on at the cinema, the best one being the darth vader ad shown when episode 3 came out.

There's this particular car insurance one where some whiney voiced Scots guy tries to repeat the phrase "Zero No Claims Bonus!" as many times as is humanly possible within 30 seconds.

That's the one I hate the most.

The Norwich Union "quote me happy" ones should be banned for false advertising.

We phoned them and got through to "India Union".... who didn't have the foggiest what my wife was going on about when she asked them to quote her happy.
When we did eventually get a quote - it was more than we were already paying with Tesco.

If you can't employ staff who understand what you advertise, then don't f'ing advertise it!

The claims one are the worst.

"I was walking through reception, when I slipped on water. Me, being a dozy bitch, didn't notice. So I sued and gots money to fly to Benidorm with my cunt of a husband."

Those ads are whats wrong with humanity.

She fell over. Big deal. Dont want to sound like some ultra conservative here, but 20 odd years ago you slip up, you wouldnt persue legal action against the company, youd just get the fuck back up! Wonder if they ever mention in those ads that out of all them people who got 10 grand from their employer for being a complete twat and hurting themselves in the process how many kept their jobs after.

congratulations on the funniest post i have read today, you know when you just read something and burst out laughing, well that was it for me.

i know what you mean, infact i think the woman your talking about has that really dodgy fringe? lol hilarious!

The most annoying ads are the claim ads where they actually try to make you believe they interview satisfied customers and the acting is so bad!

I hate all ads in general, but my most recent pet hate is the Sensodyne one where that posh cow complains about Italian ice cream making her poor teeth hurt. Oh boo hoo love!

The most annoying adverts are the Vauxhall Meriva/Zafira ads with those 2 irritating wee mutants and the bloody Marks & Spencer ads - "It's not just food", I think you'll find it is actually.



I know what you mean about both adverts. The two kids with the annoying accents - "ahh, look at her little eyes light up", which is said while their parents (I presume they are the parents) are looking at a Vauxhall/Zafira. What do you mean "look at her little eyes light up" - IT'S A FUCKING VAUXHALL/ZAFIRA NOT A FERRARI OR A JAGUAR!!!! FOR CHRIST'S SAKE!!!!

(ahem) Sorry about that. Anyway the M&S adverts are also annoying, "this is not just a chocolate cake (YES IT IS), this is a belgian chocolate cake made with the finest belgian chocolate sprinkled with (something) and topped off with mush that will probably kill you if you eat it seperately". WE DON'T CARE!! If I want a cake I will go to my local cake shop and get one from there that is actually worth the money paid for it.

All the ones that claim moisturiser defies the laws of physics.  One of them won the bad science last year as it actually claimed to shrink water molecules to rehydrate your skin.  Scary prospect!

Can someone explain to me what the hell ' cilit ' ( pronounced CIVIT ) exactly is ?
I know a Civit is a kind of weasel or ferret.
But ' Cilit ' ?
Looks to much like Clit, and Clit Bang, well that's a different product all together !

I fucking HATE those Uma ad's!! GRRRRRR!
The pausing one is enough to drive me mad.  Thing is, with Uma Thurman on board you would've thought the ad agency could've created something a bit better and a bit more eye catching!

Also hating those new chewing gum ads, is it Trident or something?  The company responsible must be kicking themselves now, if they see that on TV they surely must think what we all think, 'I want to kill that man and inflict so much pain on him that his insides explode through his japs eye'.  I turn ovfer when he pops up.  Even more annoying than Uma.

As porno says the Uma Thurman ads, especially the one where she pretends to be paused but her head is wobbling around.  Is she supposed to b sexy with her subdued voice because it isn't working.

I was about to comment on the Trident chewing gum advert as well then read the rest of his post.  This has to be the most annoying advert I have seen in a long time.  The tone of his voice is excruciating and makes me switch over as soon as it comes on.  I will never buy any product this advert is promoting.

Sheila's Wheels.  How long are you going to inflict this evil upon the world.  I hope you go bankrupt.

Thing is with Uma though, she is a rather sexy lady.  She is very capable of looking stunning, yet in these ads she looks like she's just woken from a drunken slumber after being cock-slapped for six hours.  She's fucked!
