Pandora Autumn Collection ad with an insipid looking woman and a creepy looking youth/faerie.

And for some reasons the woman’s voice on the Octopus Energy ad really grates.

the un-said bit is that insight into energy usage and better control over it leads to greater efficiency, but they don't make that claim chiefly because it isn't really evidenced.
I don't need e bloody smart meter to tell me to turn all the lights off that the kids leave on!
I'm so glad I record 99% of my Sky viewing,so I can skip the ads.

I assume it's a cash-in on the sad way people treat their pets, these days. In the old days, they ran wild and you bought a few cans of Butch or Chum and a bag of Winalot. Nowadays, it's "all dogs have different dietary requirements, give us a call and tell us about your mutt/lawncrapper"

What is it with radio adverts, I listen to LBC and the adverts on there seem to be fascinated with "putting the bins out" at least 3 adverts mention this.



Also there's some actor bloke (playing Colin in one advert , someone that's getting new teeth in another) he appears all the time and you recognize him straight away with his acting trait of trying to prove he's a real person by doing an unnecessary pauses when talking like he's not reading a script.... I'm *pause* Colin ....Think he must have went to the Joey Tribuanay school of acting.

Ah LBC. I listen to too much of it and have had many a chuckle about their crap ads over the years.

I only know this as I've seen the awful TV Version.



I had a few as a kid. You throw them at a surface and they fall as they go, mostly leaving large greasy marks on the walls and invariably ended up like human shaped dust bunnies.

Totally Money. How much facial plastic has Denise Van Outen had? eek

And bloody Amazon’s charm offensive ad. You can now go and observe the ‘happy workers’ at a despatch depot apparently.

I'm not enjoying the "car guru" ads on tv. They say it funny, kinda like one would say "kangaroo"

McDonalds advert with 2 people eating burgers squashed up against the glass of a Canadian Ice Hockey rink, rink-side. Then it shows they are actually pressed up against the doors of a London tube train. Burgers in their hands, in a packed train.

Tube of you has it - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KZs--3Qrz3I

Correction, not even eating the burgers until they disembark, just enhancing the filth attraction to them.
