On the Lynx/Axe debate...I watched something I'd taped off the tv many years ago and there was an "Axe" advert on then. I think perhaps 'Lynx' was originally 'Axe' in this country too?

Also. The new Jet2 holiday advert bugs me. The bloke is lying there on his sunlounger with his kids bugging him for money....Then his wife has to ask him for permission to have some Euro's to buy a handbag! Way to go for equality there Jet2!
Normally things like this don't bother me at all but it certainly crossed my mind that, not only is it not very 21st century to have a woman asking her husband's permission to make a purchase, but also I bet they would never have dreamt of having the bloke asking his wife if he could possibly have some Euros to buy something?

Fanta for kids that want to break the law. Ironic for a drink invented under the nazis.

What's the name of the song on the Lynx advert? I wants it, but commercialbreaksandbeats doesn't have it.

Yes, it's bloody awful! (celebrity endorsement of beauty products should be banned).

In other news, has anyone seen the add with the gummy naked girl walking around a straw field? How the hell did they come up with that?!

I should be in advertising . . .

Advert for a mouth wash that prevents gum disease? Nakid bird in a field, that'll do it!

i thought that it was already a popular drink before the rise of national socialism, but good old coca-cola did a deal with the nazis for exclusive production and distribution rights?

Nope. Created in 1940 when they couldn't get supplies of Coke syrup. I'm not certain, but I believe the other story was circulated by Coke in an attempt to discredited the truth about it's less than desirable history.

Clearly aimed at the "sex-obsessed blokes" demographic. Mind you, I'm not thinking about mouthwash when I see the ad.

I'm liking the Honda ads at the moment, though. Puzzles, mmmm.

Hehe I was waiting to see what the reaction would be, it is shocking isn't it. When I saw it I was hoping it was an ad for a Long Way Down dvd or something.

The new ad for Teletext Holidays (w. V/O by Martin Freeman) is the cutest thing eva!

Two cats sit on a window-ledge talking to each other with purrs and meows while on-screen their dialogue is subtitled... cute, cute, cute!

I saw that yesterday, they've done the 'pets talking' thing perfectly. It isn't painfully cute, neither is it stupidly meowy or growly. Just funny. The one I saw it was trying to find a toy, and theother one suggested it play with orange mousey toy or something. i hear there's more of them though.

At the moment I'm loving this ad. It does seem a little too short though

I've just had a look on Youtube.

Is it really that one with all the 'behind the scenes' footage? It's like a Genesis video from the early 90's.

She's hot and she can sing. How have they bolloxed it up so badly? Would it been so hard to put her in a nice summer dress and have her lying on a grassy hillside singing the famous jingle, whilst the camera, starting from a long distance above her, slowly zooms down to her gorgeous face?

Because she's a cock who thinks herself more talented than she actually is?

I cannot believe that crimping can sell Sugar Puffs.

I love that car ad with the singing dog (can't remember which car its for). He does look quite nervous when he's in the post office queue though.

I finally caught that Flake advert with Just Stoned. I wanted to bite off my own head.
Jubei
What's the problem with the Joss Stone/Flake advert? She's in a studio, between songs, eating a flake and singing the flake song to herself, and she drops a bit of chocolate. I can believe that she does spend time in studios, potentially eats flakes, and sings to herself. How is that so bad? Compared to something like Tiger Woods et al in the Gilette Advert it's a masterpiece of subtle, believable advertising.

It's just very sickly to watch.

But you're right about the Gilette advert. It's both worse and gutwrenching to watch.
Starscream`s Ghost
I think they're both as bad as each other.

There needs to be a version were we go through the ad as usual and just as Joss sings the first few notes Mr T plows through the wall in a tank, throws a Snickers bar at her and yells "Get some nuts".

On that one for Bingo, where all the women are sitting in the jacuzzi, when the pink balls start bubbling to the surface, the look on the woman's face suggests she is using skills learned in a Bangkok nightclub.

Anyone seen the new Coca Cola advert? It's basically referencing GTA.
I didn't know where they were going to go with it as it seemed to be endorsing being "bad", but it flips halfway through.

Has anyone seen the new The 'Apprentice' trailers on the beeb? They are superb!

Basically a bunch of commuter-types are filmed running along in various locations in the City of London, barging each other out of the way in glorious super slow motion. It's quite profound and hilarious at the same time.

They used the same ad for the last series.

That's all.

Is it wrong that every time I see the new NSPCC advert, I finish the first sentence the same way:

"All little Johnny has to look forward to when he gets home is anger, pain, fear, aggression.
Watercolours?
It's a little bit more complex than that."

I think the Bupa adverts might be even more annoying if you actually work for Bupa.
