IABU to get so annoyed by them, yet I can't stop myself. This one in particular.

I'm loving the poetry on TV but as I don't have a NW account I don't see those patronising messages...thank goodness!

This one was on the television. It doesn't read properly to me either!

Actually I quite like them smile

I think it's really poor advice. If one partner has poor credit the other could be jeopardising their own credit by getting a JA.

Nationwide. On your side.

I really want to throw shoes at the tv

Oh I know I want to punch the telly every time one of them come on!

Agreed, terrible.

YANBU. I find them even more annoying than the Lloyds funeral and Clearscore ones (and those are really irritating).

littlefrog3 Wed 22-Feb-17 23:14:13

I hate them too. Irritating as eff!

The clear score adverts are the best, especially with Flearoy (who sounds like Consuela from Family Guy). But I agree about Nationwide (who just happen to be my bank account and savings account providers 🙈)

After they were out and out nasty tonne when my marriage broke up I hate all of their adverts angry

Foslady Thu 23-Feb-17 00:56:49

To me - not tonne!

TheElephantofSurprise Thu 23-Feb-17 00:59:04

I haven't seen them.
But poets need to earn a crust, so...

YANBU OP - I want to rip my own face off whenever I hear one of the poems on TV. Excruciating!

And that screenshot....just hideous use of language. A dreadful attempt at connecting with social media users by sounding conversational and "chummy". no!

I hate all bank adverts, particularly the ones that make getting a mortgage seem like a breezy fun way to spend your time. I thought they couldn't get worse after the one with the silly bugger who loses his 'special' scarf and the bank lady finds him and gets it back to him.

But then they did poetry........

fucksakenethuns Thu 23-Feb-17 15:03:19


So if I

Just punctuate differently

then it is

emotional and

a poem

fucksakenethuns Thu 23-Feb-17 15:03:55

No! Almost as annoying as those adds made up of crappy youtube homemovies, cheap and crap.

TeaCake5 Thu 23-Feb-17 15:06:16

That one with the annoying women talking about getting out of a flat share really pisses me off.

SailAwayWithMeHoney Thu 23-Feb-17 15:12:04

That one with the annoying women talking about getting out of a flat share really pisses me off.

Agreed. Going on about tripping over shoes and the like. Makes me want to throw shoes at the telly.

LilacSpatula Thu 23-Feb-17 15:13:18

Agreed! All this 'we care about you' bollocks is driving me mad. No you don't! It's all about the market share and the profit. Do one!

Eminybob Thu 23-Feb-17 15:29:58

The strapline is "building society, nationwide" now which irritates the hell out of me. And I work for them.
Not so much on the adverts but in every single communication and piece of training material it is trotted out and it winds me up.

They have a new CEO hence the new branding and advertising.

Davros Thu 23-Feb-17 15:34:19

Which company was it that wanted to lend money to Top Cat? He lived in a dustbin and doesn't have a job shock

fucksakenethuns oh yeah the santander advert with "genuine" family videos is shite too.
