Skoda landfill indie rock guys singing about how they "gotta be me"; mimsy f-ing McDonalds advert with that horrible Innocent Smoothie singing

It isn't easy talking to your family about killing bankers

pharma chameleon (Noodle Vague), Monday, 12 August 2019 09:28 (two months ago) link

it's sad those actors can't talk about money

Captain ACAB (Neil S), Monday, 12 August 2019 09:35 (two months ago) link

What exactly are they supposed to be talking about?

"Mam can you lend us a tenner?"

"Nah fuck off I can't talk about money"

McDonald's coffee adverts right now "we don't need to [some gimmick] to sell you our coffee" No, you have a captive audience for your fucking horrible coffee, nobody is choosing to go there for a coffee when other options exist.

mfktz (Camaraderie at Arms Length), Monday, 12 August 2019 09:40 (two months ago) link

I've thought about a separate thread for that whole world of "we hate trendy advertising language" adverts produced by, er, advertising agencies

pharma chameleon (Noodle Vague), Monday, 12 August 2019 09:44 (two months ago) link

xxp "sorry about that time I embezzled the family's saving to spend on slot machines, booze and crack cocaine"

Captain ACAB (Neil S), Monday, 12 August 2019 09:44 (two months ago) link

Yeah good shout

pharma chameleon (Noodle Vague), Monday, 12 August 2019 09:47 (two months ago) link

> "we don't need to [some gimmick] to sell you our coffee"

and yet they trot through half a dozen during said ad, whilst telling us they wouldn't ever.

the coca cola tongue advert. who signed that off?

and i forget the advert but it tickles me how keen that one kid is on having a new driveway.

"Good girl Phoebe"

Go Away!

I'm confused because obviously the RAF are dead woke now but they're still murderous cunts

PMS change (Noodle Vague), Friday, 16 August 2019 18:13 (two months ago) link

> I didn't know oral b even MADE a toothpaste.

i saw this again yesterday and they've changed it. at least they've changed the audio - she still mouths the above but different words come out.

koogs, Friday, 16 August 2019 19:29 (two months ago) link

Yeah ever time I see that cut I think of this thread

PMS change (Noodle Vague), Friday, 16 August 2019 20:54 (two months ago) link

Oral B is Crest elsewhere. I think they made Crest into Oral B in the UK because Crest is not a very highly regarded brand here.

Funky Isolations (jed_), Saturday, 17 August 2019 00:03 (two months ago) link

I haven't seen the ad in question but if a Crest ad was made outside of the UK then it makes sense that it might be overdubbed.

Funky Isolations (jed_), Saturday, 17 August 2019 00:05 (two months ago) link

An Oral B ad, rather.

Funky Isolations (jed_), Saturday, 17 August 2019 00:15 (two months ago) link

We're usually in tuned to ads where the audio has been redubbed from a different accented English, I didn't get any hint of that from the oral b ad.

I did see they added a "Hello, I'm a dentist, and I use this toothbrush too" addition.

Mark G, Saturday, 17 August 2019 08:14 (two months ago) link

How are we only just talking about the oral b ads that turn up twice in every single ad break on UK telly in the past two years? I've seen these women more than my closest friends and family

or something, Saturday, 17 August 2019 08:29 (two months ago) link

i mentioned it 5 months ago and brought it back up again yesterday because i'd noticed they'd messed around with it somehow and removed the offending line

koogs, Saturday, 17 August 2019 09:19 (two months ago) link

oh right, carry on

or something, Saturday, 17 August 2019 09:26 (two months ago) link

For some reason the dentists in (these?) toothpaste adverts often seem to be Irish, or have I imagined that?

Boulez, vous couchez avec moi? (Tom D.), Saturday, 17 August 2019 10:03 (two months ago) link

oral b toothpaste is good, i haven't seen the ad my dentist told me to use it

mark s, Saturday, 17 August 2019 10:11 (two months ago) link

they're all shills for Big Toothpaste

PMS change (Noodle Vague), Saturday, 17 August 2019 10:20 (two months ago) link

the spookiest toothpaste related person is that woman with the unnaturally white teeth and white hair who i'm sure i saw on the bridge in one of the star trek reboot films.

koogs, Saturday, 17 August 2019 11:05 (two months ago) link

stand-up comedy *and* financial advice? Nationwide, you are really spoiling us

what's wrong with being centre-y? (Noodle Vague), Sunday, 18 August 2019 12:38 (one month ago) link

^ this. and they get worse with repetition.

koogs, Tuesday, 27 August 2019 19:01 (one month ago) link

the paxman ad where he asks "why are politicians so ________ ?" is grinding my gears

bcz you and yr pals do yr job badly jeremy

mark s, Monday, 2 September 2019 18:13 (one month ago) link

i guess it's a trailer more than an ad

mark s, Monday, 2 September 2019 18:13 (one month ago) link

(actual thing is on ch5 tonight at 9)

koogs, Monday, 2 September 2019 18:36 (one month ago) link

good that means i can watch law and order reruns from tomorrow without seeing it again

mark s, Monday, 2 September 2019 18:38 (one month ago) link

Horrific double-length little fingers to advertise chocolate biscuits, sure why not.

The Pingularity (ledge), Friday, 6 September 2019 18:35 (one month ago) link

"hi I'm Harry Kreddknapp and I'm an enormous cunt"

Ant & Dec: HOLD US PINTS

Joe Proroguin' (Noodle Vague), Sunday, 8 September 2019 20:32 (one month ago) link

Was going to complain about that "is it Monday? Because it feels like a Thursday" bollocks but ledge already has. (Only noticed the fingers last night - I tend to look away during the adverts so i hear them more than see them)

Graham is still climbing those stairs.

You know you've been sat in front of daytime TV too long when you start seriously worrying about how your family will pay for the cost of your funeral

a wagging to the furious (Noodle Vague), Thursday, 19 September 2019 08:26 (four weeks ago) link

And have stilted and badly acted conversations about it to boot.

Let them eat Pfifferlinge an Schneckensauce (Tom D.), Thursday, 19 September 2019 08:28 (four weeks ago) link

Badly stilted and acted conversations?

Mark G, Thursday, 19 September 2019 19:28 (four weeks ago) link

Yes.

Oppo (Mark G), Thursday, 19 September 2019 19:29 (four weeks ago) link

But there's nothing badly stilted about the rising cost of funerals. Did you know the average funeral can cost over £4000 pind?

a wagging to the furious (Noodle Vague), Thursday, 19 September 2019 19:37 (four weeks ago) link

The deliveroo one though? With the woman who comes across like Jess Phillips.

gyac, Thursday, 19 September 2019 19:40 (four weeks ago) link

trying to picture it, dunno if i've somehow missed that one. if it's not Smithsonian, PBS or Yesterday there's a good chance

a wagging to the furious (Noodle Vague), Thursday, 19 September 2019 19:46 (four weeks ago) link

took me fucking forever to find

gyac, Thursday, 19 September 2019 19:54 (four weeks ago) link

no i haven't seen that thank god, tbf if it was Jess P she'd have had to pretend to be really angry at her KFC chips being cold or something

a wagging to the furious (Noodle Vague), Thursday, 19 September 2019 19:57 (four weeks ago) link

that's another ad that i've heard but never seen (until now)

koogs, Thursday, 19 September 2019 19:59 (four weeks ago) link

the Twirl girl

Number None, Saturday, 21 September 2019 10:38 (three weeks ago) link

Why so aggressive, Kevin?

Also, it's probably the new iPhone and not the avocados that means you can't afford a mortgage.

I feel like there's a bumper crop of terrible adverts at the moment. Apparently there's different versions of this particular monstrosity, byut thankfully this is the only one I've seen.

Nationwide are the patron saint of shit adverts.

Dan Worsley, Monday, 30 September 2019 18:00 (two weeks ago) link

Ant and Dec advert for Santander also terrible - I hate those cunts anyway but nonetheless.

Let them eat Pfifferlinge an Schneckensauce (Tom D.), Monday, 30 September 2019 18:00 (two weeks ago) link

> Apparently there's different versions of this particular monstrosity

i've seen 3 different comedians. think i complained about it upthread (comedy doesn't bear repeated watches)

GET READY FOR BREXIT.
