The monthly Annoying Advert thread

Talksport have some shockers just now: "One nil to Amigo loans" - I thought it was Omega - I looked up the guy who does the ad as I was sure I'd heard his voice somewhere before, turns out he did Superted, anyway, requires immediate muting of the radio when it comes on. "Trade point, Trade point, Trade point" and now some awful fake documentary thing from Barclays bank where a woman pretends to talk to customers who have been helped by the bank, "So tell me how was business going?" "Terrible, we got burgled and all our equipment stolen." Good.

That cider advert that mocks smart phones really grates me.

 

 

"This is the theeh-ty two pip?" :muggy:

 

 

 

"Move towards the mouth, and...interface!" :muggy: :muggy:

 

I'm torn on this one.

 

On the one hand it's twee and a pain in the arse, but on the other its a superb satire on tech and rips the pish out of gadget fans.

 

The radio advert that really pisses me of though is that RBS one with tap, tap swipe (or whatever).

 

:no:

I'm not against the satire, but throw in a nippy scouser and a horrendous play on words, and I'm out.

There's a Lloyds one on just now with some seriously strange wording. It's the one where the lassie (voiceover) says she was running the family's petrol station but her sister "said [they] were in trouble because [they] were selling more sausage rolls than petrol". The voiceover lassie then goes to Lloyds, apparently discusses a business plan, gets a loan and turns it into an American-style diner. Then at the end she says "[sister's name] says we're doing great".

 

It strikes me as really irresponsible for a major bank to be advertising the ease of getting a loan for someone who relies on their sister to tell her how the business she's personally running (and borrowed against) are performing.

 

Or maybe I'm just looking too much into it. I don't know.

I don't think you are.

 

I've just reviewed the footage.

 

It appears this lassie was running this joint but it took her sister to point out that the business was failing. This was prompted the new idea.

 

Once the idea was implemented one of the big struggles was getting the waitress "Mel's" hair to stand up. It is this "Mel" that is now overseeing the progress of the business and reporting back positively.

 

Mel could well be the lassie's sister but if she is then she's being taken for a mug. Doing all the work while the other lassie basks in the glory of her new diner.

That advert on the radio about smoking indoors with the kid at the end that goes "take it RIGHT outside". I've never heard anything more patronising in my life. I don't even smoke, but I want to now. Indoors. Around this kid. So he gets cancer.

When I saw this thread bumped, I just knew this would be mentioned.

 

I quite liked the Somersby (cider/apple phone thing) ad when I first saw it, quite clever imo.

It's two thousand and ******* fourteen, nobody thinks transferring money with your phone is impressive.

That ****ing Galaxy advert where the wummin is sitting on the bus and the good looking dude drives up beside her and signals to her to ask her to come and join him in the car, so she sits in the back of his convertible and proceeds to open a bar of Galaxy and then **** off somewhere in the hot Mediterranean sun (no doubt for a ride), all the while Andy ****ing Williams is singing "moon river".

Andy Williams does not sing it in the advert. It is the Audrey Hepburn version from Breakfast at Tiffany's.

Total agreement with all of them. I feel they new maltesers adverts are patronising as feck though. In saying that, the malteser one with the guy and his girlfriend dumping him cause she seen him kissing Tracy Dawson was quite funny.

And the woman on the bus is Audrey Hepburn, some very nice image manipulation going on.

The Epic MoneySupermarket dancing freaks. I actually find it slightly disturbing - turn over as soon as it comes on

 

A guy dancing in hotpants was funny for about five seconds.  The fact that they have made four or five of them amazes me.  

 

I hate to say it but even the Harvey Keitel ones are beginning to grate on me.  Most adverts do though and I avoid them at all costs.

The Vodafone advert with the twat shouting "yes" to his two mates and holding up his phone every time he manages to get a signal. His phone should be shoved up his arse...try and see if you can get a signal now.
