Does anyone else find the big metal Channel 4 man fucking terrifying?

Or is it just me?

If you haven't seen him, he's a big iron man type thing advertising channel four before programmes start. I think he is a four, made into a man shape.

I hate it. Hate it. I have started turning it off when it comes on. I especially hate the one where he stands on the cliff and shouts at the village below. I don't really know why, I can't put my finger on it.

Anyone else? If not, maybe we can salvage the thread with a discussion of creepy or hated adverts, I dunno...I just wanted to ask.

I really like him! I think he’s misunderstood, and sort of clumsy.

RoganLogan Sat 11-Nov-17 22:23:33

Why does he shout though? sad

Haven't seen it. But your description reminded me of the Iron Man book I read as a child. Poor Iron Man.

I'll see your Iron Man and raise you one Judderman. He was a creepy little fucker, wasn't he.

Is that the metal thing playing with the kids in the street who looks like he's about to squash them? YANBU

Not seen the JL ad, but Moz images are creepy.

I love it/him/her. especially when everyone legs it when the football breaks a window!

PurpleNurple69 Sat 11-Nov-17 22:46:38

I’m with you OP - creepy as fuck! Sinister. Especially the version when it’s on a cliff or something and everyone’s being flattened by it shouting? Stuff of nightmares! grin

I hate it.

We had 'Titan the robot' in our local shopping centre a few times. It was fucking terrifying and made a horrible noise when it walked. It caught me unawares once and I got trapped in peacocks and rang DH in a panic - checked the local paper for appearances after that grin

Wow, SoleBizzz, a biscuit?! confused

OP, it reminds me of the Ents in Lord of the Rings so I wasn't creeped out.

RoganLogan Sat 11-Nov-17 23:54:41

Ooh my first biscuit. I'm strangely proud grin

Suspect it's a light hearted biscuit though.

RoganLogan Sat 11-Nov-17 23:55:21

A party ring, perhaps.

Beware the Judderman, my dear, when the moon is fat.

FireCracker2 Sun 12-Nov-17 06:37:41

He has a dropped hip.I think he must have scoliosis

It is a bit creepy. I used to love the old channel 4 idents, where it panned out on a random scenery and then it would form the channel 4 logo and then they updated them to the current horrible ones, with the creepy music and the close up of the bed bug/dust mite thing feeding itself!
