Hey Ladies, just thought that I'd check if anyone else has found some really annoying adverts on tv over the past couple of months.

Mine are (in no particular order):

1) Money Bingo that has the jangle "money, money, win, win, money, money" (I mute these ads), and the lady from Eastenders on a throne
2) Bingo advert with lady doing the Riverdance with the dog
3) Specsavers advert with the camera shot really close to people's head
4) Casino bingo (?), where a couple comes in from work and size each other up before throwing themselves onto the sofa evening of bingo! (come on, oh please)
5) Be more dog, by O2. such a stupid advert, the whole advertising team should be reposted in other positions.

Disclaimer: I know that we can always change the channel, but the quality of adverts has dropped significantly recently, that often the same adverts are being played on various channels at the same time anyway.

I can't abide the Ikea one where they are pretending to be mannequins. Hateful.

That Specsavers head camera one makes me feel queasy.

Carol sodding Vorderman. Bloody do be do be do do be do shitey advert.
The bingo one that insinuates that you pay your money and rent a mob will descend to take you to the seaside, dancing. pizza making etc. No more sitting on the sofa with the M&S ready meals.
Safestyle windows.
The ones that try to convince you that if his clothes aren't sterile when little Cyril puts them on he will succumb to bubonic plague AND IT WILL BE YOUR FAULT.

perfume adverts. not only can you not smell them on tv, but they do NOT make you look like Natalie Portman either when you wear some!!

Pet food- how do the humans know they taste delicious?

sanitary products- no you do NOT feel fresh and attractive when you've got your monthly.

that car one where it drives into the sea. irresponsible or what?

DietChef where the girl orgasms over: 'chicken currrry!'

the new national lotto one - with the annoying catchy song.

any foxy bingo one - fox skeeves me out.

The Cheeky Bingo one (not seen for ages) but with annoying lady and her sister lying about rubbish.

the diving through the car one - I asked someone if he really COULD do that and go a strange look back... LOL

but I LOVES the Run With Wolves insurance one... cos it's filmed in Croydon near where I live and it's funny and I like the cat and quite fancy the man

Oh yes, that Lotto one. It's even worse on the radio.

I detest the Stoptober one. That awful, screechy music. Sounds like my toddler with a recorder .

Why is Come On Eileen that creepy? surely it's childhood friend and turning from like to lust?!

I never knew what Dexys were until I googled wikis 'Come On Eileen'

I loathe Be More Dog.

can't stand adverts that only actually mention what they are advertising as a minor point after something else about the advert has gained poularity ie; the sodding meercats.

Anyone wh'd woken from a coma and watched those adverts would think it was to sell cuddly toys not insurance.confused

What's wrong with 'Come on Eileen' ? Please don't dissect my youth in this way! Believe me, the song is probably more innocent than the thoughts I had about Kevin Rowland during geography!!!

'You are a silly man'. Just tell your DD to not answer the phone or give your mobile number out you numpty.

The one where the kids are making their parents toast and they walk in on them DTD. It's uber-creepy.
I think it's for butter or margarine. Weird confused

Pet food- how do the humans know they taste delicious?

I believe there are people who actually taste pet food hmm

norfolk its flora buttery. I saw it the other day, its such a weird advert! Who thought that one up??

Also theres a new knew one for Johnson's baby lotion which is vomit inducing. I assume its American and dubbed. Truly awful

There are people who taste pet food - a friend of my Ddad's did it at the Pedigree Petfoods factory for a while. They'd sit round a table with tiny spoons and napkins - filling out sheets about texture, taste, smell etc. - all very civil.

I hate the one where the mum gives a toss whether the fussy eater brat likes her food. And, lets be honest .. if she nods in approval at fish fingers, Michael Winner she aint.

....she might even nod in approval at dog food grin
