To be irritated by the Victoria Plumb adverts? (lighthearted!)

they seem to be on every few minutes and I'm so bored of the STUPID SONG. Also hated the one with the annoying child's voice too.

Anyone else like to venture a view on their most annoying advert?

Agree they are dire, but at least they've got rid of the two screechy children! I can't bear the one with the huge dumps of pink pigeon shit. I don't even know what it's advertising, but it's gross!

The current Andrex adverts are terrible , and I agree about Victoria Plumb - particularly the one with the children in the bath . The adverts I have to switch off are the anti smoking ones ,if they don't put you off smoking nothing will .

Do you mean the ones we the "the more I see you" song? I love to use ads! The song is lovely and it always brings a smile to my face.

I'd rather watch ten Victoria Plumb adverts in a row than have to endure ten seconds of one bastarding Oak Furnitureland advert. God they make me unnecessarily angry! angry blush

Yanbu, and those bloody children's voices are soooo irritating.

Oak furniture land's adverts are abysmal, how did they make it past the advertising agencies pitch?

Anti - not the one with that song - the ANNOYING one that just sings "Victoreeeeeeeaaaaaah, victorrrreeeeeee-ahhhh, toria, toria" with the yamaha home-organ soundtrack in the background, together with drum machine. And yes "At Victoria Plumb" kids were in need of urgent help if they were using their everyday voices.

Anyone have a view on SMA - "and take it from us, you're doing great", voiced by someone who sounds all of 20?

(Can you tell I CBA to get off the sofa today?)

What pisses me off is the way they've turned one of The Kink's best songs "Victoria" into a bloody advertising jingle!

Dd1 is called Victoria. I keep singing the song at her. It pisses both me and her off. It's too damn catchy.

Ray Davies would be not impressed, methinks!

Who has a bathroom that big anyway? I've seen theatre foyers smaller.

Those children were the devil's work, but I have not thought about them since the latest Better Bathrooms advert hit our screens.

My current most detested advert is a radio advert, the one for Co-op food, where the man keeps saying "We don't go out in winter because it's toooo coooollld" repeatedly, as if we live in the Arctic Circle.

Cameo the only thing that reconciles me to it is the thought that Ray's making a few quid out of it.

If they ever do that to "Waterloo Sunset" I'll throw the cat at the TV!

Cameochick11 Re the SMA advert - it's Joanne Frogatt the actress who plays Mrs Bates in Downton Abbey!!

I can cope with the victoria plum adverts ... But the better bathrooms ones ..... Watch them closely next time and tell me they are not irritating hmm

Why are there so many queen songs on adverts at the moment? It makes me sad a I get all excited and then it's for a soddin sofa or something!

Are Victoria Plumb and Victorian Plumbing the same company?
