Ads that shit me

GnomeChomsky  said about 4 years ago  or at  4:17PM on Tuesday, July 7 2009 in television

There used to be an advertisement hate thread but I can't find it, so here is the venting thread dedicated to the ads that insult you with their lack of any kind of inteligence or creativity.

Ads I hate include:

  1. The Budget Direct ad with the incredibly bad French accent on the lady who pronounces it ''booo-jay'' & her patronising husband/boyfriend who has to correct her pronunciation.

  2. Some ridiculous ad about seeing Block Party at the MCA which somehow links Block Party to the MCA through a series of very poor connections, especially a reference to chicken soup & the most famous painting of a soup can being done by Andy Warhol. THAT WAS A TOMATO SOUP CAN PAINTING, YOU AD-TARDS!

  3. The debit matercard ad that tries to indicate that you can somehow become a famous rockstar by buying a drumkit with your debit mastercard & then booking a venue with your debit mastercard which will somehow fast track your rockstar career. Did the same people who wrote this ad also write the script for Garage Days???

There are more, I'm sure.

He did all kinds of Soup, not just tomato

the ad that claims women have to sleep with their legs together unless they wear the particular pad/tampon to stop leaking.

BULLSHIT!

That Campbell's Real Stock one with the bint going on about how she is a real housewife and she's in her real house surrounded by her real family when it is obvious they're all actors on a set.


JunkiePhil  said about 4 years ago:


There is chicken in there.


GnomeChomsky  said about 4 years ago:

Yes Junkie, but they refer to the most famous painting, & the tomato soup can painting by Warhol is iconic.


JunkiePhil  said about 4 years ago:

Nah, it's all of them, the peice is 32 cans, all the flavours at the time he made them.


Ohyeah  said about 4 years ago:

i saw those in real life not a month ago. le sigh.


JunkiePhil  said about 4 years ago:

Yeah, I seen em too.
Actualy pretty good in the flesh


GnomeChomsky  said about 4 years ago:

I would argue that the tomato is THE most famous, but I'm happy to agree that I disagree.


Ohyeah  said about 4 years ago:

i really really really really really really detest the I-select ads

''you'd be a ''insert stupid parable that doesn't make sense'' if you did it any other way''

FUCK OFF YOU PROVIDE A SERVICE THAT THE GOVERNMENT PROVIDES FOR FREE AND YOU CHARGE SUCKERS.


Ohyeah  said about 4 years ago:

i'd agree with that GC as well.

agreed. i think the first time i saw that ad i started yelling at the telly.


mrsjackwhite  said about 4 years ago:

I still do, foxy


JunkiePhil  said about 4 years ago:

That doesn't matter at all though, as it's still the most famous painting of a can of chicken soup.

all ads shit me


JudyDickslap  said about 4 years ago:

hyperfuzz goes berserk whenever we're watching something and that insurance ad with the insufferable woman who tries to rap comes on.

BULLSHIT!

I yell at the screen every time I see that one.

The only people to believe it are young girls who haven't yet menstruated, so as soon as they do they'll be so terrified they go and buy that product. Women generally stay loyal to one brand - I for always have been, never entirely consciously - and so BAM. They've another generation of buyers found, simply by trading off (or perpetuating?) the sleepover fears of insecure pre-teen/teenage girls.

NICE ONE GUYS.


annehelena  said about 4 years ago:

Snap on the ''yelling at the telly'' sentiment.


Ohyeah  said about 4 years ago:

Mel, the girl in that ad, is quite your senior anne.


annehelena  said about 4 years ago:

She doesn't have to believe it to be in the ad, Ohyeah.

that goofy looking ad where the black dude puts his hand in the gold paint or puts gold paint on his body or something like that. i saw it for like 10 seconds but it looked dumb as.

SGH said about 2 months ago:

I'm still puzzled by the budget direct one.

Are we meant to know who this couple are? They're presented in that way.

It's obviously some sort of sexual relationship, even though there's a bit of an age gap there. I know the stereotype is french chicks like that, but why are they pushing it on us? Who gives a fuck how she pronounces it. I really want answers on all this.

farrk! haha! i too never noticed this one but have seen and heard that ad so many times :D

JoeyRamone  said about 10 months ago:

I presumed everyone muted the sound on TV when ads came on. Since obviously they do not, my question is why not?
