I am a massive AH fan but that advert drives me up the wall. I have completely gone off Moon River now and that CGI of her doesn't look anything like her at all!!

YANBU

I have to mute it. I hate, hate her singing Moon River, the thin reedy voice is nails on a blackboard to me!

MsVestibule Sun 14-Aug-16 22:06:31

I have always hated it! I have never watched any AH films, so have no preconceptions of her, but she looks so bloody SMUG in it. I used to love Moon River but hate it now.

I think I read that Robin Williams put in his will that his image is not allowed to be used in adverts for 30 years after his death!! Wise move.

Only just realised the other day it's actually her always thought it was a looky likey

AGreatBigWorld Sun 14-Aug-16 22:07:03

I like (d) her singing it but am sick of hearing it!!

AGreatBigWorld Sun 14-Aug-16 22:08:21

It isn't her. It's a CGI.

YANBU I loathe this advert with a passion.... Aarge angry

Yanbu. Especially as Moon River was from Breakfast at Tiffanys' and not Roman Holiday.

SuperManStoleMyPants Sun 14-Aug-16 22:11:41

Entitled little madam. I want to smack the chocolate out if her hand and make her apologise to the bus driver for stealing a part if his uniform. Gwah. It winds me up.

Her face looks oddly pulled back and weird...I didn't even know it was her until this thread.

I hate the ad but it makes me laugh as whenever I hear Moon River I recall being in a bar in Hong Kong where a group of Japanese tourists were doing karaoke. One of them sang Moon Liver beautifully. 😄 I can never think of it as anything else now.

BadgerIsGrumpy Sun 14-Aug-16 22:13:55

Love AH, hate this advert with a passion. Makes my skin crawl!

DereksGotATail Sun 14-Aug-16 22:15:59

I though it was Lily Collins playing the role.

WorraLiberty Sun 14-Aug-16 22:17:32

YANBU it''s SO bloody overplayed, like it's on every 15 minutes or something angry

I also want the bus driver to jump out of the bus and grab his hat back, or for the car driver to tell her to go fuck herself, when she insists upon him wearing it angry

<< Breathes into paper bag >>

And don't start me on the slug eyebrows. That's why so many teenage girls look like Groucho Marx. It's her fault I tell you! angry

<< Passes out >>

I hate it too, it's been around too long, time for a change.

BMW6 Sun 14-Aug-16 22:22:01

That isn't a CGI of AH. It's a looky likee, who does a lot of annoyingly exaggerated blinking.

7Days Sun 14-Aug-16 22:22:29

Timely thread. It started annoying me today.

Hate it too. Poor Audrey, she'd be turning in her grave. Let's be honest, she wasn't one for choccie.

Hepzibar Sun 14-Aug-16 22:24:20

Fuck yes OP. There is something cringy about that ad.

chorltonloveswheelies Sun 14-Aug-16 22:26:50

They've used a model - She's actually from Norfolk!

LizzieVereker Sun 14-Aug-16 22:27:49

Yes, I am sooooo bored of that ad too.

But here's how they did it.

AnneEyhtMeyer Sun 14-Aug-16 22:27:58

It is CGI:

TheWitTank Sun 14-Aug-16 22:30:41

Feels like this ad has been on for a decade -they are certainly getting their monies worth. The blinking does my head in and she isn't at all charming with her bratty attitude and snatching the bus drivers hat. Twat.

LastGirlOnTheLeft Sun 14-Aug-16 22:30:54

I'm shocked! I honestly thought it was a lucky woman who looked liked her!! WOW!!!!!!

bibbitybobbityyhat Sun 14-Aug-16 22:31:25

Yanbu. It is fucking outrageous to use the image/concept of a dead person to sell something. And Audrey was anorexic so unlikely to have been snarfing down a lot of chocolate.
