I was actually enjoying the new one with the woman from Yorkshire reading a poem....then as it ended I realized it was for a bloody building society pretending to be caring and nice towards folk

bag of utter shite!

I've just switched to Nationwide. I may have to switch again if they carry on with those adverts. grin

Ugh! Pretentious, ridiculous, toe curling. As soon as something acting like a wonderful insight into life appears you know it's a building society or a bank. The hypocracy is breathtaking and sick making.

The worst is the Nestle one with women of various nationalities talking fondly about their mothers and what they've learned from them... yeah you did a great job promoting the bond between mothers and daughters when you killed all those babies didn't you Nestle, you evil fucking bastards

They don't annoy me half as much as the Halifax ones with random old cartoon characters. Who the hell thought Scooby do, The Flintstones or Top Cat would help sell mortgages???!!!

Hate them.
Woman with blonde 80s hairdo looks quite aggressive to me.. can't quite put finger on it; perhaps in my deep, dark subconscious she reminds me of someone. The kind of woman who would beat you up for merely glancing her way.
