You know when you see an advert for the first few times, and it's really long, and you know they've spent a fortune on it, and it's going to be on for an eternity?

The new Vodaphone advert about having the internet on your phone...

- The fucking awful song about 'April Showers'

- The irritatingly sincere Judi Dench voiceover

- The fact that a cog falling from that height would go straight through your skull

- Plus, it makes no sense. How does having the internet on your mobile give you more time? It's utterly impractical, surely anyone who needs it has a blackberry or a laptop with wireless access?

In other news, in an age where climate change and carbon footprints are the unfortunate buzzwords of the day, how come we have a car ad promoting pointless late night driving with the slogan, "when was the last time you just went for a drive"?

That bloody Oatabix advert annoys the shit out of me. I don't think I have to explain why.

I agree. Apart from the fact that they all look like smug gits, why exactly is the lorry driver in charge of naming new products anyway and/or why would he care?

QUOTE (Zoe)

I thought that. The next time I saw it I thought, hang on, are they advertising the fact that now, even when you're on the bus you can be working away. Do we not get any time to just sit and relax, now wherever we are not only do we have the potential for someone to ring us up, but now if we're not being rung up, we should searching out information on the web. Fuck off!

It is a pretty advert though.

That's my main beef with it. I genuinely think people's lives are become more hectic because of stuff like this. While I love having access to the internet and a mobile phone and instant messaging programs, being able to turn off is equally good. Fireman James, for example, is wired in 24-7; if he's on MSN he's receiving texts every 15 minutes, surfing the net and watching Scrubs. Then he complains that he never has any peace and quiet.

From watching one advert for laser vision correction, I wonder if my short sightidness qualifies me as disabled.

All the things those folks on the advert do after their surgery; bike riding! swimming! dog walking!

Christ alive, me too.

I think that Vodaphone watch bits ad is really beautiful.

As is the new Dolce & Gabbana one. But for different reasons.
(Said reasons being a man in tiny pants on a boat.)
Zoe
I hate the watch bits advert, it's made worse by the fact it must have cost a fortune so it'll be on forever.

Scenes from 'Women in Love', 'The Devils' and 'Crimes of Passion' acted out by little people in Ken Russell masks? Terrifying. I have to admit the first time I saw the opening scenes of the trail (before I knew what it was for) I thought it was going to be some kind of 'Don't Look Now' reference.

I wonder if that's what his dreams really look like?

I have always hated that song ever since it was on one of the Disney sing-along viedos at my Nan's house when I was about 7. My sister loved it because it was on Bambi and used to sing it all the time. I however wanted to sing the Bear Necessities. And who can blame me really?

Thanks. but it isn't on there. I also tried some other websites last night called www.whatsthatcalled.com, www.uktvadverts.com and visit4info.com but although the last site has it listed, it doesn't mention the music. It may just be music made specially for the advert but I quite like it. Click that last link to see which advert I mean.

The new advert for Shreddies is lovely. I like the idea that grannies knit Shreddies.

Those new ads for getting a new kitchen or bathroom (can't remember the company name). The couple in the kitchen are really going for each other, I honestly though it was going to be about domestic violence when I first saw it ohmy.gif

There's another one where the wife is kicking off at her husband for not putting the toilet seat down. The poor woman looks like she's going to have a nervous breakdown.
Wife Of Rolex
MFI will get chav couples going round its stores looking at what kitchen suits their style of violence best.


Her: 'This one's nice. I can see me stabbing you in this one.'

Him: 'Yeah, and the surfaces are easy to clean so mopping up blood wouldn't be a big problem.'

Dixons should hang their heads in shame for the fucking disgrace that is their new campaign.

It's got three actors playing some kind of research/development team within the company and is arse of the first order. They've even made the least attractive one a bumbling oaf for 'comedy' effect.

It's like the advertising company behind it has said, 'Let's make the people who work at the higher end of Dixons and hired us to do this campaign look a bunch of twats and see if they notice.'

Now I don't go to the cinema very often, but last night I did and it was revealed that the ghost of Bob Monkhouse is raising awareness of prostate cancer.

I was terrified.

It's the first time I've been haunted.

That latest as, am I right in thinking that the woman has just had some kind of 'relation' with the fluffly toy, nicked his car, and he's got all his mates together to chase after her and get the car back, before flashing her in the street. Does that mean Corsa drivers like having sex with toys? Ade, what do you drive?

I loathe that a little bit more everytime I see it.
Still disliking that Girls Aloud ad with the (I think) very mannish woman.

100% agree. The advert is all the more annoying for the fact that he clearly isn't attempting to act in the advert. Basically, he ignores whatever goes on around him and stares just off the camera. If you met that guy in real life, you'd think he was a bit retarded 'cause he kept looking the wrong way and grinning wistfully when you tried to say something. Thank god I don't know anyone like Mickey.

Benson & Hedges letting themselves be called a "fag company" in a advert. It's like Carlsberg calling themselves a "booze company". Or MacDonalds a "shit factory".
