Annoying adverts!

Anybody want to share the adverts that irrationally annoy them? grin

My main one is the Nescafe Azera one on channel 4. The Woman just looks so smug like she's won the lottery or something. It's just a cup of coffee!!

Kittymum03 Mon 27-Nov-17 19:53:29

Just me then grin

There's the awful Sainsburys Christmas one with the singing.
The awful Asda Christmas one
Toys R Us (that place is not magical at all)

I was only thinking today though that it's a relief that the terrible Tesco couple and their daft 'vollyvoolay' son aren't back this year. So that's good.

Hi Sparkling
I actually don't mind the Sainsburys one. Sorry!
Can't think of the Tesco one will look it up.

Sparklingbrook Mon 27-Nov-17 20:07:31

It was Ruth thingy from Gavin and Stacey and the one from Armstrong and Miller which wasn't Armstrong. Excruciating.

How can you like that awful singing? sad

Bloody Fairy-conomy!

I'm with you on the Sainsbury's one OP. I quite like it too!

Kittymum03 Mon 27-Nov-17 20:11:53

Yes. Found it. Hate them too! I am so stupid, I used to watch those adverts & think 'She looks like the one from Gavin & Stacey' grin

I havnt seen Sainsburys much. I might grow to hate it.

Kittymum03 Mon 27-Nov-17 20:13:31

Doesn't the Azera one bother anybody else?!

Harbour with the kids voices.

Kittymum03 Mon 27-Nov-17 20:14:58

I expect there is a harbour one that annoys me somewhere though. I am easily annoyed.

Sparklingbrook Mon 27-Nov-17 20:15:59

I am not sure I have seen the Azera one. I will look out for it.

Kittymum03 Mon 27-Nov-17 20:18:06

It's on before channel 4 shows. Sometimes I sneak in a repeat of Everybody loves Raymond or Frasier when I get back from school. It's on before/in between those & she just irritates me!

Kittymum03 Mon 27-Nov-17 20:24:40

Whenever I see the (I think it's the Aunt Bessies ones) where it says 'As rated by MN' or something.. the rebel in me wants to hate that product. Just because if I'm on MN I'm supposed to like it, so I won't grin

The Nationwide poetry adverts. I just cringe and have to turn them off.

Kittymum03 Mon 27-Nov-17 20:38:25

Yes! I try & get into them, but after a few seconds it's 'Ok, I get it. Enough already!'

If you want rubbish ads just listen to commercial radio. They are a special depth of rubbish.

Kittymum03 Mon 27-Nov-17 20:43:03

Oh I'm one of those annoying people that listens to the radio alot & ends up humming along to all the adds blush

wasMissD Mon 27-Nov-17 20:56:30

The SIXT adverts make me want to throw my tv out of the window.

wasMissD Mon 27-Nov-17 20:57:49

And Living Social with the barbershop quartet and the kid singing about scones 😣

Kittymum03 Mon 27-Nov-17 21:02:37

Just looked up the Living Social one. Yes. Annoying.
SIXT. Yes. Really annoying!

Several toothpaste adverts: "Oral B?! I didn't know they made toothpaste !". The other toothpaste ( clearly the adverts dont work on me) where there is a young woman on the tube making a silly sock puppet hand to a child, she has enormous teeth and her hair tucked into her polo neck jumper. It drives me wild!

Kittymum03 Mon 27-Nov-17 21:06:26

Oh. The TUI one. With the singing. Just no.

Kittymum03 Mon 27-Nov-17 21:07:53

crazy Yes! Sort your hair out! grin

AlrightBabby Mon 27-Nov-17 23:01:34

Oh god yes the Tui one, she murders that song!

But what REALLY annoys me is terms and conditions on radio adverts, it's just an annoying legal requirement, but what's wrong with just saying terms and conditions apply? I have to turn the radio off angry

Kittymum03 Tue 28-Nov-17 03:21:13

Alright I hate it when they only have, say 10 seconds to say 40 seconds worth of crap, & the whole thing is just so rushed, but im also a little jealous that they can say all that without stumbling over their words grin
