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.

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.

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

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

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 (seven 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 (seven 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.

I just saw another solidor advert except it wasn't for solidor it was for another door company

kinder, Saturday, 19 October 2019 22:17 (seven months ago) link

It's 2019, Now TV shouldn't be making adverts where the punchline is the fear of something being put up someone's bum.

So, your CV says you're a (checks notes) DJ and stand-up comedian (aldo), Saturday, 19 October 2019 22:37 (seven months ago) link

they also shouldn't be making adverts featuring Robert Webb

Number None, Sunday, 20 October 2019 18:51 (seven months ago) link

Nobody should be employing Robert Webb

Xia Nu del Vague (Noodle Vague), Sunday, 20 October 2019 19:03 (seven months ago) link

the ad with all the goths on the tube is bad

Ugh, what a voice and the advert is incomprehensible gargabe.

Dove and the fucking microbiome.

"If our bodies have it, then we should respect it". Yes, but until they told you about it, you didn't even know what it was, FFS.

So if you have a horrible abcess or growth you should respect it? Not that I do, of course. Have a horrible abcess or growth, that is.

tesco club card plus, revoiced Casablanca scene, low quality.

(then there's the idea of a *paid* loyalty card)

the important thing is that Giffgaff is stylishly incomprehensible garbage.

A is for (Aimless), Wednesday, 6 November 2019 21:05 (six months ago) link

I use giffgaff and I think it's brilliant, almost perfect, but their marketing, the matey tone they use for voicemails, all terrible

or something, Wednesday, 6 November 2019 21:55 (six months ago) link

I don't even know what it is.

Michael Oliver of Penge Wins £5 (Tom D.), Wednesday, 6 November 2019 23:43 (six months ago) link

giffgaff is gabbo

(Alexei Sayles had things to say about giffgaff, and the financial crisis, in his sandwich show thing the other day. It was a repeat but...)

That Dacia advert is back and the "Go Duster!" in completely the wrong place annoys me as much as ever.

pc world 'crimbo' adverts

... the ones with the long overdue reappearance of Advert Man, shaven and looking a little older?

'Skills' Wallace (Tom D.), Saturday, 9 November 2019 12:58 (six months ago) link

OK, so the guy looks like your standard issue UK advertising bearded wanker but, Jesus, the accent, this is probably the worst American accent I have ever heard...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WfhEaYUWFdE

... and this isn't a one off either, all of their adverts have this Dick Van Dyke In Reverse lead character.

'Skills' Wallace (Tom D.), Saturday, 9 November 2019 13:02 (six months ago) link

Jesus if I hear one more advert using that "She did a bad bad thing" song aka the cuntiest record of all time I'm gonna write a hyperbolic sweary post on the Worst Adverts thread
