I just hate it. It provokes irrational rage in me and I feel like smashing the TV set when it starts. I now turn the aound off rather than rant. It's her hideous, cutesy voice and the pause ,Hands, shoulders knees and ......toes'. Grrr! I am angry just thinking about it.

Ugh! I'm with you on this one! Hate it!

WinterRose92 Fri 06-Oct-17 19:36:12

And now it's in my head! 😬

OH MY GOD!!!!!!!




I am actually royally bastard fucked off with breathy indie girl singers ruining fucking classic songs; PRAISE YOU by fatboy slim is another one that is on at the mo!

And there are more. LOADS MORE!

Oh yeah. YANBU!

I hate it more than I hate the Gala Bingo one and I REALLY fucking hate that!

I HATE her swoopy "can't hit the note in the middle" delivery too. And I am sure the tune is one note wrong from the way I have been singing it all my life.

I would vote it as the most irritating advert ever in the history of TV adverts. I will never buy Fairy anything again in protest - that'll show them grin Now they'll be sorry.

It's absolutely hideous and I don't know how it got picked.

YES - was just saying this the other night - that ad is the pits. I detest that soppy breathy singing with a passion!

LuluJakey1 Fri 06-Oct-17 20:34:12

'breathy' yes that's the word. I want to smash her face in every time I hear the singing. (Am not in any way violent but it just enrages me).

Thank god I have not seen this advert! I use Fairy WUL and want to carry on using it but am scared this ad will stop me! Sounds horrific.
If it's as insipid, breathy and entitled as the Trivago woman then I'll throw a bottle of bleedin' Fairy at the TV.

Omg the fucking, “If you’re happy and you know it clap your hands!!!” Nooooo! X

shock😠its swful

Can I also throw in the ad for 'talk talk' with that fucking annoying family acting 'natural.' The woman (who has a hideous fake screechy laugh,) dressed up in a denim jacket, sitting on her couch, singing along to 'gonna get along without you now' whilst swinging her feet, whilst her husband guzzles booze out of a bottle.

ARGH! angry

I hate that ad with a passion. Her cutesy breathy voice annoys the hell out me. She sounds like a wind up toy that's winding down.
Oh and don't get me started on those awful nationwide ads. Bloody annoying shite.

WorraLiberty Fri 06-Oct-17 23:25:07

It's annoying but not as bad as that little whiny boy who wanted the Fairy Liquid bottle because, "I've beeeen waaaiting aaaagess to build a rocket".

I want to rinse his mouth out with it, to see if I can git rid of his bloody voice angry

tippz Fri 06-Oct-17 23:28:22

Yep the Nationwide ads are majorly cringey!

ushuaiamonamour Sat 07-Oct-17 22:20:09

Soundtrack for that advert awful, all right, not least because breathing-impaired singer can't pronounce a zed: Hands shoulders knees and . . . . . . toessss. And I wonder whether anyone at Fairy or Leo Burnett knew that the tune was nicked from a drinking song: is a cheeringly camp version, though there's probably a video of it somewhere being sung by a tablefull of central Europeans belting it out whilst clicking together large foamy glasses.

Oh God absolutely. All started with Lily Allen on the John Lewis ad and now these breathy slowed down versions of songs are everywhere. The head shoulders knees and toes one gives me the proper fucking rage

I hate this breathy voiced shite! Definitely the most annoying advert ever. It makes me want to rip my ears off. It annoys me that she probably thinks she's cool singing like that, some marketing tosser thought it was good and a massive cunt at Fairy approved it. Those Nationwide ads too, Jesus! What is the world coming to!!? I'd love it if I was in charge at one of these companies and was presented with ads like these angry

Andrewa Thu 01-Mar-18 15:08:17

Yes ... AND... has anybody noticed that the first time she sings “knees” she actually says “Niss”?? So it’s Hands Shoulders Niss and Toes!!! Are they actually TRYING to drive us mad?!!! LOL

This has been going on for years now - breathy, slowed down indie versions of songs on adverts. I thought the trend would've died a death by now but it seems to be getting worse. Who is buying this music and making it popular? Stop it!
