YANBU. Had to sit through one at the cinema the other day. Complete wank.

You aren't alone. Annoying, smug, think they're hilarious but they're not, fuckers.

DannyLaRuesBestFrock Wed 21-Feb-18 20:23:26

I thought their could be nothing worse than the people reading meaningful poems. But I was wrong.

You are SOOOO not being unreasonable.

Turn the bastards off every time they come on

Very irritating and ripping off TimMinchin's style.

Bank and Building Society ads have always been awful. I worked for one of the big 4 and cringed every time a new ad was aired.

Ugh. I saw it yesterday.

‘It’s a roof over my noodle’. 🤮

Twats.

Also that bit about showering in the sink and ‘my feet smell like gravy’.

Fuck off you annoying, low expectation having wankers!

They're still better than Howard from the Halifax adverts. That guy gave me the rage!

I really quite like them, I love the song they first did about 2016

Neverender Wed 21-Feb-18 20:48:43

Absolute bollocks!

aRespectableBureaudeChange Wed 21-Feb-18 20:49:59

they are awful and cringeworthy.

DalekDalekDalek Wed 21-Feb-18 20:55:43

They make me feel very stabby! They are an actual act, people actually pay money to watch them.

flugelhorn3 Wed 21-Feb-18 20:56:52

Oh my god OP I can't STAND them! DH and I were talking about this the other day! Thank you for making me not feel unreasonable.

CheekyRedhead Wed 21-Feb-18 20:57:30

Awful, like a PP said, you thought it was bad enough when they just did poems, now its these shite songs. when will it end?

Sarahh2014 Wed 21-Feb-18 20:59:48

Is this the one with 'the sisters'?

Creambun2 Wed 21-Feb-18 21:01:35

flo and joan are awful, especially that shit "crimbo limbo" ad.

witchofzog Wed 21-Feb-18 21:04:11

I hate them too. Especially the miserable looking bint on the left

Aridane Wed 21-Feb-18 21:11:30

Fucking excruciating- there is another thread on this!

gillybeanz Wed 21-Feb-18 21:15:11

Gosh such reaction from an advert, can't say as I've seen it, but don't watch tv, much.
Are people watching adverts not for fun now, are you all bored?
