Adverts love em hate em - all threads in here please


I'm utterly utterly bored. Television is so terrible that I'm getting more enjoyment out of the adverts. Therefore, I feel the need to express my current likes / dislikes of TV adverts. There is only one at the moment, making me chortle ever so slightly...

The one for "make authentic food at home (out of a packet)" Tikka Masala, with the hot towels being brought out at the end of the meal.

"Mmmmmmm lemony!" :D

Dislikes, as ever... anything from the Halifax. Makes me ashamed to be a customer. :mad:


The one with the Brummie guy and his girlfriend at the garage -

"Dont....Don't you want me baby?, whoa, whoa whoa whoa whoa"
Does anyone remember those Hieneken adverts from the 80s that were in two parts?! I loved them! I particularly hate cat food adverts - can't stand cats and the kind of single women who love them............. ::)
The ground breaking 5 part Carling Black label advert
Started in the supermarket and ended as a spaghetti western, with normal adverts in between -class

Carling Dambusters

Tango - I'm Ray Gardener, sales director for Tango, and I've had a letter from a foreign exchange student.....

Amazingly, some bloke has it on his site

Heineken "That ain't the Blues" - laughing as I type this

The indian Peugoeut advert - The bit at the end where they're rocking in the car - lol see that every day of the week here.

The Nike world cup adverts - Elvis redux, and some amazing skills

The "Callard and Byeser terrifically tasty toffee Biggles adverts" "Can't jump Skipper, vertigo, Grinds going rind and rind" and "I told them you might know something"

Lynx effect Pied Piper advert, or the Jennifer Aniston one. Bit unbelievable though, who the hell would leave Jennifer aniston at home ironing your shirt, and go out for the night with Cathy Lloyd? Christ on a Bicycle, she's been 29, since I was in short pants.
lololol Cheers PTP just reminded me of the Carling Dambusters add. ;D ;D ;D


I was beginning to think I'd imagined the five part carling black label ad (complete with twinkling gold teeth) - thank god I'm not losing my marbles.  It's still my ambition to ride a galloping horse down the toilet roll aisle of Safeways on pension day.

The John West salmon advert and carling crab adverts are my recent faves.

However, personally I would promote the chap who came up with the idea of a sultry looking kylie in stocking and sussies on a bucking bronco machine to the rank of 'Living God' immediately .

Anyway all of the above are at Punchbaby (including Kylie). Enjoy!


"Ah ambassador, with these cheap tacky chocolates you are really spoiling us"  ;D ;D ;D

Has to be the daddy!

Dislikes include the old Werthers Original ads - "My granddaddy used to give me Werthers Originals and I knew I was in for a real treat, soft strong and uncommonly good (or whatever)" - English country scenes evoking a better age where honest craftsmen laboured to produce the finest sweeties known to man etc. etc.  Right.  As far as I know you couldn't even get Werthers Originals in this country until 1995 and, since they are German, presumably the granddaddy in the advert had filched them off some Nazi corpse in the Normandy bocage   ;D

And don't even get me started on the hideous corporate PR type adverts, like the current Orange ad, where they try to pretend that they are all happy families making a better world, rather than the evil asset stripping, environment defiling filth we know them to be.  :mad:



The most annoying at the moment are safestyle uk windows adverts - the chuckle brothers and some other twat repeatedly spouting off "buy one, get one free, i said, buy one get one free!!!" - if i ever meet the tossers!! :mad:


What about the Budweiser Frogs/Lizards adverts.
Bad beer, good ads.


Has to be Kylie in the Agent Provocateur adverts.  Am not sure if this was ever screened on the TV, I think the fun police might have decreed it a little too saucy and therefore it was restricted to being shown at cinemas and then only before a certificate 15 or 18 film.

If any woman (preferably looking at least a little like Kylie... though I'd settle for Danni) wants to come over to mine and gyrate like that (preferably with me playing the part of the bucking bronco), I'll buy them all the Agent Provocateur underwear that they can carry!


how about the Fosters 'save the earth' Ad?

2 minutes of how we are killing the earth with our evil ways finally telling us what are our options are....last option -'just say bollocks to it!' cue the bottle swigging kangeroo -was in the cinema when we first saw it and the place fell apart laughing.... ;D

is still Piss weak lager though.....


Ooooooh, Kylie's Agent Provocateur. Could watch it again and again and again ad-infinitum.

One set of ad's which should never have made it to tv, must be Michael Winner/eSure car insurance. How awful are they? I'll give that old bint "Hello, Mum"! She's so old, her mum MUST be dead by now  :)


Love the Fosters Feng Shui one.

Despise- the old El Paso Fajitas ad with the amazingly ugly girl talking to her friend on the phone " blend of aromatic spices" deserves a righteous shovelling.
There used to be one that cracked me up.... Remember the McDonald's ads for the 99p menus on the theme of saving money? The one that was shown most often was the "save money on your wedding video by holding it in the garage forecourt so it is saved on CCTV".

There was one with 2 guys driving round in a yellow van with big fairy dice with their black mate in the back of the van immitating the sound system' sub-woofers by kicking the side panels. That one got pulled because it was deemed "racist". Thanks fun police!
John Smiths bitter ads with Peter Kay.

Football - All showing off ball skills in park until it gets to him and he lashes it into a garden with an 'Ave it' for company.

Indian Restaurant - Phone call from babysitter because littl'un is scared of cupboard monster. Told not to worry about cupboard monster, should be more afraid of burglars etc.

Mum hoovering - Mr Kay enters carrying suitcase and unplugs hoover. Informs Mum that it is time to go to old folks home. After she asks why she should go he offers the classic 'Cos the kids are scared of your moustach and I'm putting a snooker table in your bedroom.'


The Aussie Andrex one.

Advert starts zoomed in on a blokes face. He's on the phone, barking orders at a secretary. "Just tell my wife i'm in a meeting", "No, I won't be attending my sons birthday party", "Tell Jones that he's fired". As the camera starts to pan out, you can see the slicked back hair and braces of the standard 80's salesman. As it pulls further back, it transpires that he's on the toilet with his trousers round his ankles. Then the tagline appears

"Andrex, for a*seholes everywhere"
