the pot noodle horn is absurd and awful to watch...

the twix one will raise a few eyebrows I am sure

But I LOOOOVE the Citroen C4 , with the robot, especially the music...does anyone knows where it comes from ?

That 'final frontier' game advert (or whatever it's called) at the start and end of EVERY ad break when Star Trek Voyager is on

yep, shaz osbourne pretending she slums it in Asda like normal people without servants!also the michael winner esure ads - puke city!!!! but the ones I hate most are the loan shark ones where 'actors' ( term used loosely ) pretend they have been in terrible financial trouble until ' just one phone call to xxxx-a-loan and my life changed, and they were really nice'. They are on channel 4 and 5 during the day all the time!

"You buy one you get one free....I say you buy one you get one free"
That really annoying double glazing advert with the dude with the beard and long hair, usually accompanied by a thick looking blonde girl in a red dress
.....know the ad I mean? ARRRRR

KFC all of the bloody things including the start of Ant & Decs Saturday Night takeaway

Just had to resurrect this thread to say that dh and I find the First Active adverts REALLY irritating - the mortgage ones where they shout out the window to "most people", find "they" in the forest and find "it" written on a wall...patronising and lame in the extreme!!

JanH Wed 06-Apr-05 20:46:48

DS1 and I really like the KFC one with the couple about to take the icecream upstairs and their kids looking at them in horror at the other end of the table.

sorry.....

Agree about most of the others mentioned though (esp M Winner and the mad people looking for finance on a country walk).

debs26 Wed 06-Apr-05 20:50:04

still cant buy werthers originals cos of the adverts (i must have been someone very special...). also that vanish ad where everything is pink. sooo crap but made worse by the fact that i thought the actress was brill in bad girls. and the neil/leslie homebase ads.

kelb6180 Wed 06-Apr-05 20:53:57

The advert that annoys me the most now is the
"Calm down dear its only a commercial"

and then they prolong the so not funny joke by sayin
"calm down dear it's only a mouse"


GRRRRRRRRRR
