every time this cupronol advert comes on i think, i don't get it.

Shed don't cry and don't take bottles of milk, if its supposed to be a baby, we don't paint babies when they cry

help!

I don't get it either? Bottle feeding a shed?

Grrr, I hate it.

Katz Sun 31-Mar-13 15:46:35

not just me then

its really annoying, why bottle fed a shed?

LynetteScavo Sun 31-Mar-13 15:48:21

I think it means you look after your shed by painting it. confused

Does this mean I need to paint ds when he starts crying?

It's a shit, pointless advert

I hate it when it does the projectile vomit. DS2 had Pyleloric Stenosis at 6 weeks I should say it traumatizes me. sad

but shed's aren't babies - why feed it a bottle first why not just paint it?

Glad it's not just me, feel irrationally angry everytime it comes on.

I like it, even though it's nonsense. I like the tears coming out of the shed's 'eyes'.

glad im not the only one too. stupid advert angry

so glad others are on the save wavelength as me on this ad. I've been thinking the same & get angry

It's just a completely rubbish idea for an advert. God knows how the ad agency came up with it - it's just terrible and nonsensical and not even amusing imo.

My friend thinks it's genius. confused

It made me giggle.

I think the writer had a MIL who insisted their baby was hungry every time it cried.

They want to say once and for all a bottle isn't the only way to cheer something up grin

That ad is a bit odd. Especially at the beginning when the bloke.appears to be asleep nuzzling the woman's boobs.
So maybe it makes.you think about babies and feeding from the off.

Why bottle feed a shed?

I think they have trouble with their latch wink

Katz Sun 31-Mar-13 16:00:05

eduCated - grin

smile eduCated

Lots of people must have agreed this was a good idea for an ad campaign. I have absolutely no idea why. It's a terribled advert.

eduCated groan [bgrin]

Am I the only one who thinks that if they had a shed that was screaming and demanding attention, they'd take an axe to it not a bucket of cuprinol?

It drives me up the wall, its so annoying.
But I suppose its doing its job as we're all talking about it!

It's not a very good advert (most of them are shit) but do you really not understand it?
