I think some of these were mentioned on the last pages of volume 1, before it hit the 500 page limit. All popped up in the same ad break earlier this evening.

Fiat 500XL centred around a Back To The Future theme.

Amazon Alexa featuring mummy going back to work, dad looking after the baby, and the talking device handing out various pre-timed messages from mum telling him where things are, what to do, what she's already arranged activity wise, and then the really patronising one where he's reminded how much his other half loves him vomit

Ring House Alarms - clearly an American advert based on the cars / house design featured but with CGI'd in regional accented male & female actors in an attempt to make it look like the advert is "UK" based. Especially the supposedly ammusing "jokes" uttered by both characters when telling the burglars to sling their hook.

Not sure if it's been mentioned before but that 'Sunny' Indeed really grinds my gears.

When was the last time anyone watched the interviewer shake their head as if to say 'You were that bad I don't need to take the time to think about it so that will be a No from me?'

Then, when he gets a job the whole floor stands up to clap his arrival.... as if.

I came to the new thread to post this ad.

Notice that they cut away before he bites into the tasty chocolate snack.

Aviva dash cam app advert with the idiot who sounds just like David Walliams if you close your eyes. How would anyone not know what a Knight in armour is as he tries to explain to an accident insurance assessor "a tin man wearing a tabard, a poncho..." etc. It's all very irritating, also why is he needing to claim, he didn't have an accident as he had stopped as the horse and knight crossed in front of him.

I note giff gaff have been infected by the doggerel masquerading as poetry contagion.

May the person(s) responsible for this always get stuck behind a slow driver, who lets everyone out, and they just get through a changing set of lights, while the ad folk have to sit there.

The Audi advert where the car emerges from a container as an orchestra is playing. Complete load of bks.

This one on Challenge, it's a wordsearch game for a chance to win £20,000.

It only costs £10.80. The answers are coronationstreet and white.

And the narrator tells you to be quick as you only have so many seconds to find the words! Obviously the dim witted will be laughing at them thinking they have forgotten people can pause live tv! rolleyes

Aptimil follow on milk always gets me. They say (to paraphrase) -

"Nothing beats breast milk for giving your baby the best start in life, yada yada. If you choose to move on ..."

What the fook?

IF you choose to move on - what a stupid statement. What if someone chose *not* to move on?

You end up with a 50-odd year old mother with breasticles like beagles ears dangling down by her belly button, with her 30-something year old kid sucking on them stretched across the table.

Such a daft advert.

clearly you don't have kids. You can breastfeed until they no longer need milk, not as their only food source forever. The people they are speaking to are the people who want to give up breastfeeding before they are done with milk, so need formula.

I had kids almost 30 years ago ...

... and you win the "missing the point" award for this week. My point is valid, the wording is completely wrong.

If you **choose not to move on**, you're breastfeeding your adult offspring.

I think we will very much agree to disagree there. Move on to bottles, or stick with tits. Neither of those things suggests doing it forever.

I know it was mentioned on Vol1, but the John Lewis "Partners" rebranding excercise advert is really wearing thin now.

Played on every advert break during Hidden Britain By Drone on C4 on Sunday evening. Also on nearly every advert break during the Goodwood Revival coverage on ITV1 earlier in the afternoon too banghead

Just think it's only 2 months or so until they'll be ramping up their Christmas spectacular too getmecoat

And speaking of Christmas - SCS (i think) are already running an advert about ordering your furniture in time for Christmas delivery. Made even worse by having a One Direction track playing in the background of the narration that appears to have been re-sung by a group of out of tune pre-teens.

Not sure whether they're same sex parents or maybe sisters, best friends, whatever? Either way, it is indeed a dreadful advert.

As is the Q8 ad mentioned further up. When it emerges from the container I couldn't help but laugh at how plastic it looked, then laughed even more when it was announced as a Q8 rather than a Q1 or 2.
