The most U thing, is that I am not even sure why it gives me the rage! Just so annoying smile

Bailey101 Tue 16-Feb-16 12:36:59

Is that the one with the florist who wants 'everything propa'? If so, it bugs the crap out of me too grin

MamaLazarou Tue 16-Feb-16 12:38:24

Ugh, she is awful. YANBU.

goodnightdarthvader1 Tue 16-Feb-16 12:40:43

Vistaprint are shit.

irlouise13 Tue 16-Feb-16 12:48:29

I feel positively homicidal at the 'propa' one
YADNBU

I hate the way the florist says 'really smart'. Gives me the irrational rage!

BourbonChicken Tue 16-Feb-16 13:14:00

Yes, Bailey. That's exactly the advert I am talking about!

FoxFeatures Tue 16-Feb-16 13:19:36

Oh god. I have found my people. I thought I was the only one who loathes that ad and that woman in particular. Wtf does everything proper mean? I can feel my blood pressure soaring just thinking about it.

Bailey101 Tue 16-Feb-16 13:40:51

Everytime I see that advert, I want to grab her by the shoulders and scream that she's not bloody Ali G!! grin

ArtyBat Tue 16-Feb-16 13:51:48

No, YANBU to loathe the Ad, but you've remembered who it's for haven't you? wink

Good advertising then, whether you like it or not!

I actually agree with you re the ad - it is annoying, but......I've used their business cards for a number of years now, and love them! star

Bailey101 Tue 16-Feb-16 14:12:47

Dammit Artybat, I feel like I've been conned now. I don't like the idea of some woman who can't say proper gettin gone over one me 😂

ArtyBat Tue 16-Feb-16 14:27:18

Tell you what Bailey, if you could see my studio you certainly wouldn't call it 'propa'.
In fact Vistaprint just might take their cards back, cos I'm definitely not representational of what flower woman says! grin

bruffin Tue 16-Feb-16 14:34:48

Yes
The only advert to give me rage.
Nobody who is a perfectionist would say "propa"

WanderingNotLost Tue 16-Feb-16 16:14:36

God I'm so glad it's not just me! I can't stand the way she tries to sound so posh and then comes out with that awful 'propah' at the end. I have to mute her. Her and the Gladstone Brooks guy. And the life insurance one with the spoiled little brats children.

Actually I pretty much have to mute all the adverts.

Oysterbabe Tue 16-Feb-16 16:20:27

Latest advert hate - the Snackachist.

IceRoadDucker Tue 16-Feb-16 16:59:25

We mute them.

Latest advert hate - the Snackachist.

I woke up at 2am with that bloody rap sound echoing around my head.

goodnightdarthvader1 Tue 16-Feb-16 17:06:46

rap song*

BankWadger Tue 16-Feb-16 17:16:56

I was whinging to the husband about annoying vista print woman just a couple of days ago.
She can't ruddy pronounce th. Everysing etc, topped off with proppa. Argh!!!
It defeats the whole everysing perfect pretence and puts me right of fake flowers.

LarrytheCucumber Tue 16-Feb-16 17:34:45

That is one (of many) adverts we turn the sound off for. No idea why the 'proppa' is so annoying, but it certainly is.

TammySwanson Tue 16-Feb-16 17:50:05

YANBU for sure. I hate those ads - the 'they look propa!' bit and the way, at the start, she says 'I.. am.. a ....florist?', as if she's not even sure what she is. The dog grooming one is a bit better and yet still they have chosen a person with an annoying voice, who can't read a script without it sounding like she's reading from a script.

TempusEedjit Tue 16-Feb-16 18:39:35

Yanbu, it's propa annoying (although not as bad as Gladstone Brookes and their PPI possibly missold to you and I, and that Kinder advert for "chocklit")

Pogmella Tue 16-Feb-16 18:53:55

The Fixodent ad is worse. That lady stands on the wobbly dentures and the text at the bottom of the screen flashes up 'Dramatisation'. Thanks for clarifying it's neither a tiny elf woman nor a giant with dentures...

Oysterbabe Tue 16-Feb-16 19:00:10

Haha! DH pointed out that dramatisation label yesterday.
