After those fucking irritating Nationwide adverts has anyone seen the Giffgaff ads?

It couldn’t make me want to go with them less tbh. Hideous.

I hate those sodding Nationwide adverts.

I haven’t a clue what that Big says Small does rhetoric has anything to do with a Bank.

Poetry is lovely. The name ShirleyPhallus is ugly and coarse. Cheers x

I’d say there were many worse things on tv than a bit of poetry in an ad!😬

God yes. I hate those adverts. I have to turn the volume down because they get on my nerves so much. It’s like they are trying to be earnest but it comes across as cynical. I dislike the Halifax adverts even more though.

Personal attacks on posters are ugly and coarse.

Nationwide ads are hideously irritating though. I turn over.

I think the fact it isn’t good poetry is the issue. The two men who’s mothers met at ante-natal. Just who cares????!

I find spoken poetry to be cringeworthy at the best of times (I know IABU, I can't help it) so shoving it into an advert is beyond the pale

It aint a personal attack. It's a critique of a pseudonym. Doh.
