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.
They cut out the bit where the delivery driver slammed into the back of him at 70mph while playing with his phone.

Schpock adverts, on all the time and that poor girl that does the voiceover always sounds like her voice needs a rest.

Creepy Chewing gum "Hi Im Tom" smug chap and lascivious closeted dad still doing the rounds.

There's a new Easyjet ad with an awful cover backing tune.
Haven't worked yet out whose tune is ruined.

Just came here to mention that, I suppose if 1 / 2 women gets a dry fanny some cream is welcome couldn't they wrap it up in a sort of fast flowing music advert with women in rollerskates?

Can’t remember which company, but some advert about funeral care/plan.

‘Life’s too short about it planning for your funeral’ or something along them lines.

The latest advert for the 'new Mercedes A Class' showing off lots of gadgets and features it comes with, al good you would think!

Then the small print...Vehicle shown is not to UK spec and some of the options shown are not available in the UK!

Isn't that false advertising?

capri sun with the speaking juice carton

"sally messaged us to say it would be easier to send my kids to the moon than decide what drink to give them"

so many stupid things in there... why would you message a juice company to express confusion about what drinks to give your kids. Secondly why would anyone find it difficult deciding which awful chemical sugary st drink to give to kids... that st is like a magnet for children.

Then the joke that isn't funny (and isn't even really a joke) about the moon being cold...

Nothing in this ad has any point, and there is no message or interest... who gets paid to produce this ste? Why do companies lap it up too??

AO.com where the sun starts to flicker!
Delivery guys take a new sun and while the current one is flickering they unscrew it and replace with a new one, they then switch on the plug to make it work, shame they didn't switch it off before removing the old one rolleyes

Not if they put that disclaimer on it. Same as adverts for games that say not actual game footage.

I have a sort of fantasy about this. I find her attractive in an older woman way and she could make good money by advertising as a "squirter" on Adultwork

That's fair enough but what is the point in advertising something no one here can buy?

Because you can buy it. It's the physical car not the options being marketed. Cheaper advertising if you can use ithe mages in the advert in any number of different countries and all it takes is editing a disclaimer according to region & getting each country to add its own dubbed in voiceover.

The current BMW Mini ad's the same with a US advert / US spec car / options some of which aren't available over here.

British Gas adverts with the line "We're with you...". They couldn't make it sound more fake if they tried.

Thank you,thank you and thank you.

It's so banal isn't it ?
It's as if they just feel they must have an advert on so come up with a crap tag line and then stick to it.
It's in the same arena as the banking adverts which transfer particularly badly to radio

We've been thinking about Sundays 3 films stay in your pyjamas extra roast potato days
And we thought could we come up with more crap like this and we have

LLoyds Bank by the side of business

Mind numbingly dull
