The one where she breezes into the cafe to meet equally annoying woman and they whitter on about how fantastic they feel,
"i haven't felt this good since I was 30"

Oh I hate it.

SkinnybitchWannabe Fri 12-Apr-13 14:37:53

And the Greg Wallace one is just as annoying. I cant stand him though!

Bleuch yep i hate it too! She basically repeats the same crap from the other ad in a different location confused

She's a bollock ..

I hate the Mel B Jenny Craig one!!! Such a load of shite plus we all know...she was never big to start with and probably never even did the Jenny Craig diet!!

Patsy Kensit gets on my pip too smile

I don't remember PK being particuarly overweight. confused

The Mel B one makes me want to rant. Food 'delivered to your doorstep'. YY ok if you are a millionaire Mel. hmm

No, YANBU. Not even remotely!

I've only seen the first PK one, but every time it makes me irrationally angry! I find myself shouting "Bet the dieticians and personal trainers didn't hurt either!" Can you see her popping down to her local community centre to weigh in? Or looking up the points in a cod and chips online?

She doesn't even show a before photo!!! ffs

Yeah they are a tad annoying to say the least!!!

Dh said this morning after watching it "have you considered weight watchers?"
I am 6 feet tall, weigh 11 stone 12 and am sixe 14. Yes, I have put on an inch or two round my waist but am addressing that.

This has filled me with rage where they are going on about the offer they have on steaks for "him and her" and the him plate has steak and chips and the her plate is steak and sodding salad.

I still haven't calmed down about this one.

squoosh Fri 12-Apr-13 15:26:13

Greg Wallace creeps me the fuck out. I can no longer watch Master Chef. Bleurgh.

YoniliaHoax Fri 12-Apr-13 15:27:11

But that's Business breakfast woman!
She lost tons of weight as well.
hate that advert, it's so stupid.

Gerrof Fri 12-Apr-13 15:30:14

Have you seen the latest Tena lady one?

She is late to a theatre and has to push past people to get to her seat. She is wearing a red frock and shoves her arse in people's faces and does some kind of tango with another woman halfway down the row.

And then shows her knickers with tena pants on.

What is that supposed to say? Wear these and brush your arse in people's faces and they won't be able to smell the PISS?

I shouted at the telly yesterday when that came on. I am getting to taht age where I yell at adverts. sad

Gerrof Fri 12-Apr-13 15:31:18

BrEKKfast BISCuits with Lisa Snowdon.

They way she says breakfast biscuits with emphasis makes me rage.

And Kerry Katona putting a posh voice on for the payday loan advert, the shrew-eyed twat.

squoosh Fri 12-Apr-13 15:34:43

That Tena Lady woman needs to stop being so happy pissing herself and get an appointment with a urologist.

The one I really hate is for some sort of beer with Jean Claude Van Damme wearing ridiculous denim dungarees doing snow angels.

He was so gorgeous in the late 80's early 90's and now................

Makes my teeth itch!

mrsrobertduvall - sounds like the useless blubber isn't on you....

I weigh a bit more and am shorter. It isn't you that needs to take action - and even I am only a little tubby.

off for a walk.

MandragoraWurzelstock Fri 12-Apr-13 15:55:21

Was she ever fat?

I hate the sparkle one. She so hasn't got it back and those frocks are like something the Queen wears.

Gerrof grin I've just seen that one. I thought it would be for Special K not Tena Lady.

There's another Tena Lady one where the woman is in the bath confused surely in the bath you can leak to your hearts content and noone but you will know?

I hate the KK one too.
Take financial advice from Ms bankrupt? I think not.

Gerrof Fri 12-Apr-13 16:36:50

Yes I thought it was the Special K wo,an as well. I was quite pleased that it showed a woman patently in her 40s and not someone of 20 something. Until they showed the piss briefs that is.

OhLori Fri 12-Apr-13 16:59:14

Agree with everyone. Women are always prancing about laughing unconvincingly, drinking wine with their mates in adverts. Just a tiny, tiny bit unrealistic shock. Diet adverts are the worst though.

TeacupTempest Fri 12-Apr-13 17:07:02

SOVERYLUCKY Are you serious?! Haven't seen that coop one but I am so cross I nearly threw my cup of tea across the room! I want to write a strongly worded letter.

thebody Fri 12-Apr-13 17:42:26

Geroff, I just spat out my coffee, literally.

thebody Fri 12-Apr-13 17:44:31

Ffs just read sqoosh re the tennis lady happily pissing herself.

twitchycurtains Fri 12-Apr-13 17:56:49

Oooh I just came on AIBU to start my own thread on that annoying advert. Firstly in what universe is Patsy Kensit ever considered to be big or overweight, the other woman (newsreader type) also wasn't huge or overweight in the usual sense at the beginning. I would assume that WW's bread and butter (arf) is your average person with a couple or more stone to lose, why would you choose two seemingly slimmish women to advertise your brilliant weightloss plan. It's akin to certain bra companies using models with surgically enhanced breasts to advertise the great uplift and support of their bra's yes you ultimo.

The advert is a joke and v annoying especially when they talk about being able to eat with their children. I think WW think that not only do their potential customers have weight to lose but also are quite dim too.

Kerry Katona advertising that lady loans company can fuck right off too, they APR is like a gazillion percent.

MandragoraWurzelstock Fri 12-Apr-13 18:11:00

Willyou, no, that's just what you think grin

It's probably fine till someone informs you that you smell like diluted wee.

<disclaimer: I do it too>

MrsBertMacklin Fri 12-Apr-13 18:13:03

It's in the same vein as the toe curling Sky advert with Ruth Jones and Robert Lindsay. I suppose at least Patsy hasn't sold her soul to the devil in return for a wad of cash.

Grinkly Fri 12-Apr-13 18:17:31

MsRobertDuvall, someone advised me not to exercise because of middle flab but to think 'lift' and use the midriff muscles to hold yourself a bit taller and straighter, also when you are sitting.

Well, you do also have to watch what you eat but this 'lifting' yourself is much easier than going to the gym and imo works ( a bit).

crashdoll Fri 12-Apr-13 18:50:30

YABabitU. It's the one WW advert that doesn't make me want to hurl the remote at the TV.

soverylucky Fri 12-Apr-13 18:54:54

I kid you not teacup I am glad you share my rage (or at least I hope you are and not taking the proverbial...)

Anyway saw it for the first time last night - pressed rewind and called dh in to show him as he wanted to know what I was shouting about. I mean - us women couldn't possibly want chips could we. WELL I WANT THE CHIPS and may God strike me down Co-op, but I am going to eat the chips. Stuff your limp lettuce and bits of cucumber where the sun don't shine!

TeacupTempest Fri 12-Apr-13 19:50:00

I do share your rage! Cross on many levels but can't rant properly as bfeeding DD!

Misogynistic advertising. How is that a good angle?

I now what chips (from another shop)!

Mrsrobertduvall Fri 12-Apr-13 19:52:18

Oh I lift grin
i do pilates and constantly think pillars.

LadyBeagleEyes Fri 12-Apr-13 19:59:33

I've not seen the new Tena lady one.
I'm still involved with Tena lady in the lift followed by Tena lady going on a date with bloke from the lift.
On both occasions she's fallen over and shown her knickers but does it in such cutesy way, that said bloke can't resist the pee smell..

BoredBeingSamWestsMistress Fri 12-Apr-13 21:01:14

I just hate Patsy Kensit. YANBU.
