Title says it all really. Marionette puppets looking like the bratz dolls. The dance routine that they do towards the bending machine and the bit where they all bend forward and slap their own bottoms - GRRRRRRRRRR!!!

It makes my blood boil angry so much so that I can't actually articulate what makes me so angry because I'm so wound up!

That's the one. Am going to stop buying H&S for DH because of it. Makes my blood boil.

re the bottom slapping being porn-ish, the dancing on the desk in those very high heeled shoes is too - that makes me think of strippograms.

Hadn't seen that one before. Also unpleasant.

Who approves this crap?

Any Special K advert ever.

I just don't know why the diet coke advert annoys me but it just does.

At the moment I am currently loathing the Alpen advert. You know, the one with the impossibly good looking female models, in leotards, eating Alpen and then they say "its sexist" and then we get to see some male models. The subtext is "we have now made you feel crap about your body so you better eat our bird food. But cheer up love as we have made the men feel a bit crap too".

ooooh! yessssss! of course, Special K shock

what about the recent one, where she's looking for the hidden biscuit tin, and keeps finding motivational <ahem> post it notes instead, exhorting her not to quit/break, since she's "come so far"??

I can only assume they have been left by her controlling partner- who is himself out on the lash/tug- having first locked away all the food and has her trapped indoors, gradually starving, till she's fit to be seen with him at a glittering social event (as long as- of course- she doesn't speak)

<jumps up and down in a rage>

The ad isn't remotely offensive, the health consequences of the junk product they are selling is worse than offensive.
