Gay body-builders, you know the one from Holland & Barrett advertising bulking pills or something. These sort of ad's make me embarrassed to be a man, in the same way the wkd ad's do. If I ever become like the guys in this ad I want someone to simply shoot me. That is all.

All fitness related adverts are the same, they use some gym monkey to advertise a product that you know they never use. The Perfect Push-up guy doesn't look the way he does because he bought a £30 piece of tat.

Adverts just get worse and worse but my most hated advert is Boots 'Here Come The Girls' - that's a channel changer for me...

The Iceland Christmas advert made me want to stab myself in the eyeball with a fork.

AGGGH I hate that advert so much. All Christmas in every advert break ... Wait for it... 'Here come..'

How much in royalties was made through that I wonder.



Adverts now seem to belittle, demean men. I dont care to be very honest but if it was a woman having her arse smacked or whatever could you imagine the complaints?

You go girl!!

I feel the same about those Go Compare adverts - all of them. There's now even a Facebook group called "I want to slap that Go Compare opera singer in the face" with nearly 80,000 members...

I like the WKD one, specially sat in the tipper truck and turn the heaters on with the crisp packets flying around.. Typical builder type.

Do we not all watch stuff from the PVR and just skip the crap ads?

RSPCA.... Richest charity in the UK... Please just £2 pounds, let us feed this little doggy, just £2 pounds...... fk OFF
Even worse are the RSPCA ads which use fluffy little kittens. Have you ever tried to call the RSPCA out over a lost or injured cat - the reply you get is:

"We dont do cats - ring the Cat Protection League"....click

But that's my problem with those ads, they stereotype. I'm not a footy playing builder who goes out & re-lives the match with the lads having a good weez drinking blue coloured crap. And if I was, as there's nothing wrong with that, then I'd still be pissed off with being stereotyped.

My point is that all men are not either footy playing builders, hen pecked under the thumb wimps or gay.

The RSPCA sounds like its organised on a bizarre franchise system, and the parent company doesn't seem to like passing money down to the various operating units.

My mum volunteers for one in the north west, she handles the payroll, was on the board, and they have chronic financial problems. Their premises are a beat up couple of shacks and god knows how they keep going.

How about that mobile phone advert with myspace-Josh-what’s-his-face-musician in it.

Seriously, F off.


Edit - just noticed the T-mobile ad banner on this site 'I've just annocunced my tour date blah blah blah....' Again, F off.

Don't remind me - having said that if you did stab yourself in the eyeball with a fork you mighth get something that tastes better than the stuff Iceland were advertising...
