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

oh right, carry on

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

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

they're all shills for Big Toothpaste

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.

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

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 (five months ago) link

i guess it's a trailer more than an ad

mark s, Monday, 2 September 2019 18:13 (five months ago) link

(actual thing is on ch5 tonight at 9)

koogs, Monday, 2 September 2019 18:36 (five months ago) link

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

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

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 (five months 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 (five months ago) link

Badly stilted and acted conversations?

Mark G, Thursday, 19 September 2019 19:28 (five months ago) link

Yes.

Oppo (Mark G), Thursday, 19 September 2019 19:29 (five months 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?

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

gyac, Thursday, 19 September 2019 19:40 (five months 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

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 (five months ago) link

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

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.

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

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

GET READY FOR BREXIT.

This one is just disturbing...

As you say..

Those comedy ones are probably the best of that type of ad (remember the "Smug Google" one?) but twice each (tops) is enough.

Mark G, Monday, 30 September 2019 20:00 (four months ago) link

we are in a very poor time for adverts

the only one I've seen recently that I quite liked was for...that new innocent smoothies blue drink. that's what i've sunk to

mind you it is quite a nice drink ngl

oh, it looks like you're on the phone but then the scenery pulls back and you're there in person. cool effect.

oh, it looks like you've on the ipod but then the scenery pulls back and you're there in person. ok, we've seen that before.

oh, it looks like you've on the laptop but then the scenery pulls back and you're there in person. zzzz.

I really wanna punch Drew from the Aldi advert in the nuts

I've started thinking the grumpy teen on the right in the Robert Webb advert for Now TV is how Laura Pidcock looks in the shadow cabinet.

So, your CV says you're a (checks notes) DJ and stand-up comedian (aldo), Thursday, 10 October 2019 21:23 (four months ago) link

Every time the Gucci advert that uses In Every Dream Home A Heartache starts up, I laugh. Did they never listen to the lyrics?

So, your CV says you're a (checks notes) DJ and stand-up comedian (aldo), Thursday, 10 October 2019 21:25 (four months ago) link

there's a local artist - who is disabled and on income assistance - who gucci contacted about doing something with, they had some back and forth and then they then cut contact (without saying they were doing so). shortly afterwards they've got someone else to just rip off her work completely and she hasn't seen a cent. so fuck gucci basically

the kid in the Mr Kipling advert looks like a motherfucker with some dark secrets

Holy fucking shit lads

the advert in question is one of two that C4 are using (the other one is some optical thing) that completely mangles English into something nobody could use

that video is incredible though, the shot they use when she says 'the masses'!!

imago, Thursday, 17 October 2019 10:01 (four months ago) link

i searched for it after seeing the actual advert this morning and being mind blown by the acting choices especially shivering beardo

This sort of thing will happen if you employ a 12 year old as your Marketing Manager.

Michael Oliver of Penge Wins £5 (Tom D.), Thursday, 17 October 2019 11:05 (four months ago) link

haha, I hadn't seen the ad, so watched the video you posted and was expecting... something else

Nothing says 'durable' like a shivering man I guess
The Alan Partridge fan in me always wants to shriek "ONE CANNOT HAVE GRADATIONS OF UNIQUENESS!" when I hear stuff like this

the alexa ad with the blind woman. am i the only person unconvinced by her choice of shoes after hearing that rain is forecast? umbrella, yes, but change your shoes for crying out loud.

Also, it made our machine shout out today's weather for Slough.
