to think that marketing has gone too far this time

I reference the use of Katy Price and Piers Morgan to advertise the Lotto. Surely these abominations of human beings cannot inspire people to play??! The whole negative premise of the campaign is bad enough, but does this pass for humour these days? Bring back the advertising of old and stop trying to be clever!

Now I really can't stand either of those two but I have to admit that I do like those adverts!

I think YABU - vaguely humorous campaign with hasbeens (and never weres) is too far?

here's a grip, you might need it

I think they're amusing.

Forget the grip, they make me reach for an imaginary brick to destroy my TV with though. And they're tacky. I hate tacky. For real humour they should take a leaf out of the Aldi book.

It's not all about you and what YOU want is it?

I have only see theKP one and thought it was really funny. I liked her taking the piss out of herself really.

If they want me to gamble a quid on a one in 14 million chance of winning then it bloody well is AnyoneForTennis! I mean, my child needs school shoes!

Actually I like the adverts <snigger> and I quite like Piers Morgan.

I'd rather have wine Is 3pm too early?

The Laurence Llewelyn Bowen one is funny, and I don't resent him getting the fee as much as the other two.

Ouchmybloodythumb Tue 21-Jul-15 15:02:17

I like the adverts.

I also really like Katy Price blush

And I quite like Piers Morgan blush

There's a LLB one??! I am off to Google as I quite like his campness...

TheCatsMother99 Tue 21-Jul-15 15:03:07

They're playing on the fact that people can't stand them... I think it's pretty funny.

LittleLionMansMummy Tue 21-Jul-15 15:09:51

Yes but if I don't like someone I usually choose not to see them - in this case it's practically being thrust down my throat.

paulapompom Tue 21-Jul-15 15:28:03

But op you know some people do like Katie price and even piers Morgan? I am not one of those people but they do exist. Personally I can't stand Jeremy Clarkson but I couldn't expect the bbc to get rid of him on my say so.

I fell for the Price advert blush which was very funny. Haven't seen the others. Ms P has not changed my spending habits.
