Peoples Post Office - Worst TV advert at the moment ?

#1
Okay, I know there are a multitude of car insurance and "consolidate that loan" type adverts on during the day for wasters like me but...the worst TV ad at the moment has got to be that pile of poo supposedly encouraging us all to use the Post Office.

Sorry, the People's Post Office (I don't think that's ironic; I think they actually mean to call it that !)

"Land of Hope and Glory", Joan Collins etc etc. Oh, the sound of the bottom of the barrel being scrapped. It's as if a group of sixth formers doing Business Studies have been asked to produce an advert before breaktime for a school project.

Oi, Post Office, it's rubbish !

most insurance adverts get on my wik, i do belive there is already a thread about bad adverts, to be honest i can be bothered to waste my time finding it as its been linked so many times, maybe one of the kinds mods can move this for you

Predatorplus...Don't want it moved !

It's not "What's the worst advert on TV", it's specifically about how rubbish this particular Post Office advert is !

There used to be massive queues in the Aldershot post office every day, so what did they do? Close it and move it into W H Smiths!! Put in a load of trainees and what do you have - Chaos! So I must admit to seeing the joke in that advert.

To be fair to the post office add it starts with the bloke putting down some ant powder and saying, "That should get rid of them." Nice touch I thought.

The post office is still a fine institution, forming a focal point for local communities and allowing poeple to conduct a whole range of personal and business admin in their locality. The problem is finding one as they are shutting down at a rate of bleedin' knots at the mo.

Great post office we had, now its been moved into a shop, 3 times smaller 3 windows and only one working. Everyone wants to draw money out (wtf have banks shut) or renew car taxes, does anyone buy stamps or post anything.

For me the post office is a place to pick up forms. And for years they've been at the back of an asian run 7-11. The last time I was in a real PO I was subjected to adverts on a portable TV for 20 minutes whilst I queued. Everyone smelled of wee too.
