To think that Scarlett Johansson's Dolce and Gabbana advert is much more annoying than Asda's Christmas ad?

"I like my lips ... for kissing." Duuuh.

stifnstav Thu 06-Dec-12 16:19:40

I do my own lovemaking!

CuriousMama Thu 06-Dec-12 16:20:20

It's her hair and the way her lip sticks to her teeth. Who makes these adverts??

freddiefrog Thu 06-Dec-12 16:20:53

All perfume ads are more annoying than Asda's Christmas ads, any ad in the history of the world in fact, but that Dolce & Gabanna ad is exceptionally so

Oh God yes, I HATE that advert.

MrsHoarder Thu 06-Dec-12 16:25:08

But most of us aren't going to boycott them for the simple reason that very few people buy them. And they've always made "controversial" adverts.

gail734 Thu 06-Dec-12 16:30:28

But isn't the point of any advert that you're supposed to admire the character in it and want to BE her? I don't want to be her, she's a bimbo! Why the dopey voice?

noddyholder Thu 06-Dec-12 16:31:15

I hate it too

propertyNIGHTmareBEFOREXMAS Thu 06-Dec-12 16:31:32

Yanbu. It is a wank advert. Absolutely wank.

Blackberryinoperative Thu 06-Dec-12 16:34:31

Its a toss advert. And then she complains about a picture of her ass in the papers. Silly woman.

WhenShallWeThreeKingsMeetAgain Thu 06-Dec-12 16:34:35

Is that the one that goes flash, bright white flash, flash, bright white flash again and again? It's dreadful.

gail734 Thu 06-Dec-12 16:38:24

And don't get me started on Brad in the Chanel advert, looking all old and scruffy. Whyyy? It's a perfume for women!

ThatBintAgain Thu 06-Dec-12 16:43:15

Oh god, it's terrible. I wasn't sure if she was trying to do some sort of shocking faux-Monroe thing or is just totally unbearable.

FeckOffCup Thu 06-Dec-12 16:46:18

She makes my teeth itch, "I do all my own stunts, including lovemaking" err lovemaking isn't a stunt and you'd be a pretty shit actress if you couldn't do lovemaking scenes.

expatinscotland Thu 06-Dec-12 16:48:32

She's annoying as all fuck in general.

MaxPepsi Thu 06-Dec-12 16:50:47

truly awful advert, saw it last night for the first time and i'm pretty sure D&G will be regretting hiring her for it.

I can't stand Keira Knightley either but at least her adverts for chanel are half decent!

Bazinga12 Thu 06-Dec-12 16:51:09

YANBU. All ad breaks in our household are currently put on mute just in case that smug bint shows up. Or the Ryvita girls.

woollyknickers Thu 06-Dec-12 16:51:43

YANBU at all.

That advert makes me want to throw things at the TV.

OTTMummA Thu 06-Dec-12 16:54:56

I get unreasonably stabby when SJ or KN ads are on, they can't really talk like that, well I hope not.

peeriebear Thu 06-Dec-12 16:55:44

Her HAIR. It looks like she went to some backwater old-lady salon for their best 70s bouffant. And the word 'lovemaking' makes me want to punch her in the tit!

gail734 Thu 06-Dec-12 17:01:44

I hardly knew what the word "stabby" meant until this D&G ad appeared. It makes me feel SAF!! I agree, ThatBint, she's doing a Monroe impression, but I hate it! One ad that divides us in this house is the Boots "Here come the girls" campaign. For some reason it really irritates my husband. Probably because none of the women in it are wearing aprons.

saycheeeeeese Thu 06-Dec-12 17:06:19

I love the j'adore one...Charlise Theron and all the Hollywood stars, Grace Kelly is so effortlessly beautiful!

vintageviolets Thu 06-Dec-12 17:09:59

The toys R us advert is actually going to be the sole reason I end up in a nut house.
It was even on at 11pm last night. I cant fucking bear it.

angry

noddyholder Thu 06-Dec-12 17:13:18

The j'adore one is my fave too Love the song

Darkesteyes Thu 06-Dec-12 17:14:39

I love the j"adore one too. Although i thought Marilyn Monroe wore Chanel No 5.

Darkesteyes Thu 06-Dec-12 17:16:02

I also love the song in the ad. I know its The Gossip because of Beth Dittos distinctive amazing voice but i dont know the name of the song.

McKayz Thu 06-Dec-12 17:19:29

DarkestEyes, the song is Heavy Cross.

noddyholder Thu 06-Dec-12 17:20:37

Heavy cross

Darkesteyes Thu 06-Dec-12 17:20:40

Thankyou McKayz i will have a look for that thanks

McKayz Thu 06-Dec-12 17:21:54

I went googling it the other week as I love the song.

saycheeeeeese Thu 06-Dec-12 17:22:01

She boycotted chanel when she saw Brads awful advert.... grin

akaemmafrost Thu 06-Dec-12 17:25:22

She is in her twenties but her hair makes her look like she's pushing middle age. I don't get what the big deal is about her.

Cozy9 Thu 06-Dec-12 17:28:11

All perfume ads are utter bollocks.

Bella88 Thu 06-Dec-12 17:48:05

I'd quite happily punch her in her mouthforkissing, till my sodding hand bled.

Irritating, pickled onion headed bint!

Darkesteyes Thu 06-Dec-12 17:58:57

Found the Gossip video of this track.
Disappointed and pissed off to see the mysogynistic nasty comments about Beth Ditto underneath.
She is way talented and cooler than any of the arseholes making comments like that. Fabulous talent. AMAZING voice.
Why do people have to be such dicks.

Darkesteyes Thu 06-Dec-12 17:59:24
Chandon Thu 06-Dec-12 18:00:43

I also really really hate the guy who says on a French accent" I am not going to be the person I am expected to be any more!" how very deep not

DyeInTheEar Thu 06-Dec-12 18:02:35

YANBU - it's total crap. It even has my mild mannered DH shouting at the tele.

Mrsjay Thu 06-Dec-12 18:02:54

I had a thread last week about it silly moo doing all her own loving making stunts angry I hate it why did she do it she has a tonne of money

Chandon Thu 06-Dec-12 18:03:09

It also annoys me that the guy in bed, when the girl gets up and he sniffs her pillow and in doing so sticks out his butt (is it D and G?) looks so gay.

I don't obviously object to gay people in adverts, but what is an add with a woman and a gay guy in bed really about???what are they trying to tell me?

fedupofnamechanging Thu 06-Dec-12 18:12:53

The j'adore one does my head in. I think it's morally wrong to use images of dead people to peddle products, when those people aren't in a position to consent. It feels very exploitative, to me.

Also Charlize (sp?) Theron is beautiful. Wtf have they done to make her look so freakishly weird in that advert?

JamieandtheMagicTorch Thu 06-Dec-12 18:14:35

Totally agree that the Sj ad has managed to make a very sexy young woman look terrible.

My all time hated perfume ad was the Chanel Nicole " i love to dance" Kidman naffola one that cost millions.

Second would be the nonsensical Kiera Knightly-on-motorbike twaddle

All perfume ads are bizarre...I hate that one with the annoying French Barbie woman (nothing against French people AT ALL, it's the only way I can think to describe her as I can't remember the bloody name of the perfume). She bounces about and is generally annoying.

I hate the way perfume ads try and be deep and sell you "a lifestyle"...like car ads

Does it smell nice? That's all I want to know.

Rentergirl Thu 06-Dec-12 18:20:10

Didn't she shag benicio del toro in a lift? I see that ad and I think ok I aint judgin you but audrey hepburn you're not.

MrsJingleBells74 Thu 06-Dec-12 18:21:00

It makes me stabby.

Rentergirl Thu 06-Dec-12 18:21:27

and the one with that girl who plays serena from gossip girl? she has her mouth hanging open like she was born for porn. shut your mouth.

stifnstav Thu 06-Dec-12 18:25:38

Every time Brad says "inevitable" at the end of that ad, I get Tourettes and shout "Death and taxes!"

blonderthanred Thu 06-Dec-12 18:28:41

My DH said they've achieved the impossible by making SJ unsexy.

LightHousekeeping Thu 06-Dec-12 18:29:32

She's the most overrated actress IMO. There's something slutty about her. And I hate to say that about a sister.

SwedishEdith Thu 06-Dec-12 18:36:54

I was nodding in agreement to all of these comments until I read Chandon's "I also really really hate the guy who says on a French accent" I am not going to be the person I am expected to be any more!" how very deep not" No, no, no I would leave my dp for him in the high likely event of being asked to He is gorgeous

Rentergirl Thu 06-Dec-12 18:38:12

I hear you lighthouse.... she works that slutty angle. prefer blair, character and actress. can't remember their real names.

CindySherman Thu 06-Dec-12 18:48:49

It's awful. She sounds like she has a hot chip in her mouth.

GothAnneGeddes Thu 06-Dec-12 18:59:40

I did like the Audrey Tatou Chanel one. It was nonsense, but gorgeous nonsense.

JamieandtheMagiTorch Thu 06-Dec-12 19:14:48

Audrey Tatou one was beautiful. Although she looked painfully thin.

FoxyRevenger Thu 06-Dec-12 19:20:37

Slightly OT but have you seen the FCUK men's gift sets in Boots? They all have a sentence in big writing across the front...The man is feeling adventurous...The man flicks his belt. WTAF. Wank wankity wank.

noddyholder Thu 06-Dec-12 19:27:37

She looks like a wanton Margaret Thatcher

captainmummy Thu 06-Dec-12 19:32:53

I hate hate hate all perfume adverts. It's impossible to see a smell so they go completely stupid with the imagery.

And there's so many of them nowadays - every ad break has about 4 in.

(at least it's squeezed out the GoCompare adverts. one advantage...)

ifyouknowme Thu 06-Dec-12 21:06:45

YANBU!

But the D&G one with the guy in the car genuinely made me gawp at the screen. I even stopped stuffing chocolate into my gob when I saw that one grin

Frankelstein Thu 06-Dec-12 21:11:07

What about the felt like 10 minute long Chanel advert with Nicole Kidman and That-Bloke-From-Love-Actually? Yawn!

GetorfsaMotherfuckingMorrisMan Thu 06-Dec-12 21:23:30

I love Charlize Theron, but what the hell have they done to her as she looks like a psychopath in that advert.

I also like the one where she rips off all her clothes and stomps around and then says J'adooooooore in a hammer house of horror voice.

Where is my all time favourite 'wtf?' Advert this year - the one for Prada eau ambree perfume with all these strange girls sliding up and down walls. Oh and the 70s Gucci one with some daft bint looking lovingly at a bottle of perfume the size of a microwave.

Alisvolatpropiis Thu 06-Dec-12 21:32:20

rentergirl I love Audrey Hepburn but apparently she did have a fair few (married) co stars in her early acting years.

I don't get SJ. At all. Natalie Portman yes,SJ no.

MrsJingleBells74 Thu 06-Dec-12 22:03:16

I quite like the 'millionaire' one.

CindySherman Thu 06-Dec-12 22:06:40

I like the millionaire one too

JamieandtheMagiTorch Thu 06-Dec-12 22:10:08

Frankelstein

Yes i mentioned that one upthread.

When she comes put in his jacket, spins unconvincingly and says " i'm a dancer. I love to dance"

Stoopid adverts

DyeInTheEar Fri 07-Dec-12 11:37:50

DH loves the Audrey Tatou's, erm, "outfits" so much he tried to secretly find me a jump suit like the one she wears at the end of ad though I'd look a shocker in it

He innocently went into Chanel to find out price and asked after "that outfit Audrey T wears in your advert - the trouser suit with the pasta straps"

meaning spaghetti straps. He came out empty handed, amazed at the prices, and said the Chanel shop assistants were not so nice.

wineandroses Fri 07-Dec-12 15:16:49

I've always thought that Scarlett Johansson looks like someone's just pulled a sink plunger off her face - her puffy nose and lips stick out too far. Never thought of her as particularly lovely. Which clearly I am (not a nasty witch at all).

NiniLegsInTheAir Fri 07-Dec-12 15:21:17

Compare the Scarlett Johansson in Lost in Translation to the Scarlett Johansson in that advert though. It's like she's a different person. sad

Beksybob Fri 07-Dec-12 15:55:47

The DKNY one with the apples. So, first she ruins someone's apple stall (what a cow) and then...the teeth! She could eat that apple through a tennis racket. How did she escape the orthodontist?!

GinSoakedMu1berryLush Sat 08-Dec-12 19:12:35

I still remember nicole kidman in dead calm, and at that point she really looked ordinary. Pretty yeah but very ordinary. Decades of having five times/100 times/1000/a million times as much money as every but else her age has made her beautiful. Which is interesting. Makes me wonder how much of beauty is just conforming to current grooming fashions and standards, and how much is the proportion of the features and bone structure.
sorry. went all deep there.

AniMac Tue 11-Dec-12 11:24:41

I found this thread purely because that D&G add pissed me off so much, I decided to see if I was the only one..and I can see i'm not! I'm not even sure why it grates. Could it be the hideous hair or the wanky, cringemaking words?? The bit that vexes me the most is when she says "oh, i'm not looking for a million things, just that one.." blah, blah, fucking blah! It angers me an irrational amount! Perfume ads in general are arty farty shite..although I did buy Flora by Gucci, purely because of the advert. blush Donna Summer, poppies, and a gorgeous dress..Sold!

KenLeeeeeeeInnaSantaHat Tue 11-Dec-12 11:31:13

All perfume adverts are twatty wankery of the highest order. And they all fail to tell me the one potentially useful bit of information - what the bastarding stuff smells like!

TheCraicDealer Tue 11-Dec-12 11:31:33

Why in the Chanel ads do the women always disappear on the fellas? If they're trying to sell a lifestyle, well I'm sorry, but I don't want to be flaky.

wildfig Tue 11-Dec-12 12:45:01

What's that hideous new Chloe one about? The one with the wheedly phone stalker? "You were so priddy yesterdaaaaaaay....' [cue woman rolling around kittenishly in bed, which is seemingly compulsory in these things]

urgh.

ArtVandelay Tue 11-Dec-12 13:14:39

I thought it was meant to be funny, like SJ was making fun of herself or starlets in general. The Brad one is tragic - he looks old and he's waffling. I think he'd sell more in character as Tyler Durdon.

That Chanel / Nicole one was scandalously bad. She appeared to be drugged or hysterical, really not aspirational!

AndyA55 Mon 24-Dec-12 00:01:16

Glad to know I'm not the only person in the world driven to distraction by the DIRE script of this ad.

The awful way the actress fails to use sensible meaningful phrasing shows incompetence of:
The actress
The director
The Advertising Agency
The company paying for this.

I can't blame the telly programme companies, who will take money off anyone to keep in business.

DoctorAnge Mon 24-Dec-12 00:13:05

The dead sounding voice, the pathetic script the Thatcher hairdo and the weird creepy lip catching grimace.
It's horrendous !

fishcalledwonder Mon 24-Dec-12 00:25:09

This ad started a conversation in my house about SJ and her stupid 'lips for kissing'. DH stated that there are women that women think are beautiful, and women men want to bonk. Apparently SJ is in the latter category.

Himalaya Mon 24-Dec-12 00:26:35

Noddyholder: "a wanton Margaret Thatcher" grin That's it.

Can't stand this advert. I quite like the Asda one. It's very well observed.
