To be annoyed at the Rob Brydon P&O advert?

Just saw this for the first time- am I being unreasonable to be annoyed by the bit where he and another chap are sitting at the table and it says something like 'saying hello to the Spanish shops' as it shows the women skipping off, and 'saying goodbye to your credit card' as the blokes sit down at the table watching them go... I've assumed the implication was that the women were going to blow all the men's money (as they can't possibly have their own) but maybe not. For some reason it's really narked me off!

Yeah it's pretty naff. And the whole "fake wife" thing (unless that lady is actually Mrs Brydon)

Hmm, just watched it again on youtube and think he says 'our card' not 'your card'... Which changes it a bit...I'll get off my high horse...whoops!

God it's not as bad as the 'heart wrenching' Centreparks advert, with Mummy bear working late at the office and getting home after the baby bear goes to bed.

Talk about trying to guilt parents into booking a family holiday.

I think the woman is his real wife. The ads don't make me want to go on a cruise at all!

I hate it. And now have zero interest in Rob Brydon for taking part in such smug, unfunny, patronising horseshit. Then again I am not in the cruise demographic - maybe I would find it charming if I was.

No they changed it OP because people complained - I know because I hate the advert and noticed the changed - it seemed P+O couldn't get it's head round women having their own credit cards and money if 2016!

As far as the current crop of shit and annoying adverts goes I'm afraid Rob Brydon and his simpering pretend wife aren't even in the running grin

Consider please -

Any bingo advert but particularly Galalalalaalaaaaaaaaaaaa (you cunts - once that tune is in your head it's game over and 48 hours of ear worm misery)
Nicole Kidman and those stupid bloody meerkats - we were so over them five years ago already
Halifax and their clumsy, corny and cringeworthy "Joe Cunt - you're OUR type of guy.........." [puke] [puke] [double puke]
That turgid little turd of a thing in the - what is it? Claims Direct? National Accident Helpline? Who cares? It speaks like it's got two bits left in and makes me itch to break every bone in it's body with my bare hands. Then we'll see who needs a lawyer!
Whoever that leggy smug self satisfied "grammy nominated" actress is that advertises the NoNo hair electrocution thing and bangs on and on and fucking on about it. Listen love - if it was that good, it'd be available in the shops. Just sayin'.....

That's all. The rage is building up again. grin

Oh no, just watched the bear advert. Not sure whether to be sad and successfully guilt tripped, or angry... Maybe they should do a discount for mummy bears booking in guilt-buster breaks. Maybe a follow on ad to show the post hol stress fest wink

Mutton you forgot that stupid fucker on the Just Eat advert, who prances round the lounge, singing about Chicken Madras angry

VictoriaSecrets Sun 07-Feb-16 21:41:00

Mutton- can i nick 'ear worm misery' for when someone waffles in ever decreasing circles at work, or would that be wrong?

tappitytaptap Sun 07-Feb-16 21:51:08

DH keeps asking whether she is his real wife on the ad!

MuttonDressedAsMutton Sun 07-Feb-16 22:05:14

Oh yes. The Chicken Madras fucker. Yes. How should she die?

Ear worm - brilliant as it is - is not my invention I'm afraid Victoria so nick away! grin

PainAuChocolat23 Sun 07-Feb-16 22:08:43

Oh my fucking god that bint off the chicken madras advert needs to be drowned in a vat of the stuff!! She gives me the rage. Then the gala bingo advert. Arrrrrgh angry

MuttonDressedAsMutton Sun 07-Feb-16 22:14:05

I know some advertisers regard it as a success if their ads make the 'most irritating' lists but I have to tell Galalalalala (if they're reading grin) that I will NEVER darken the doorstep of one of your clubs again on the back of that advert - mainly for fear that they might play the tune in the club! Yeah - I know - they're quaking in their boots already! grin

WorraLiberty Sun 07-Feb-16 22:22:15

Oh yes. The Chicken Madras fucker. Yes. How should she die?

She should slip quietly into a Korma.

iklboo Sun 07-Feb-16 22:22:58

That fucking Lenor little balls things that you put in the waaaaaaashing so the smell doesn't go to your claaaaaarset to die. And that pissing cat in a fecking wind tunnel faced 'actress' that flogs them. Rage inducing.

MuttonDressedAsMutton Sun 07-Feb-16 22:24:31

I don't know that one ikl but I'll be on a mission to look out for it now!

coffeeisnectar Sun 07-Feb-16 22:27:53

Barbara Windsor and her big blue balls. Just fuck off with your cackle.

rumbleinthrjungle Sun 07-Feb-16 22:28:17

Best thread of the day grin

VictoriaSecrets Sun 07-Feb-16 22:33:42

Ffs, now i want a curry (if i can't resist you lot i can't be trusted to boycott madras ad blush)

RortyCrankle Sun 07-Feb-16 22:34:57

Agree with all of the above but my real hatred is reserved for the Haribo ads where the adults talk like 3 year olds.

EssentialHummus Sun 07-Feb-16 22:39:33

I find the P&O ad incredibly naff but am a sucker for a Welsh accent. Chicken madras lady can fuck right off however.
