    OK it was an ad on ITV hub but Flight Simulators Midlands I really think you should have doubled the ad's budget to something in excess of twenty quid....

    The new Boots Christmas one.

    Surly teenage girl is sick of her mum telling her what she can and can't do and seems generally disgusted to have her as her mother. HOWEVER, out in town one evening she sees her mother singing in a choir by a Christmas tree and her face changes to one of wonder, admiration and respect for the woman who was telling her to wipe her make up off 5 seconds earlier. They go on to be bestest friends and live happily ever after.

    In the real world, the sight of a parent singing in public would be enough to extinguish the final, dying embers of love and respect for them and only serve to increase the levels of angst and rage felt by the teenager.

    The Christmas dinner table would be even more of a barren wasteland for conversation and interaction with teenager after they had witnessed the horror of the singing parent.

    All Xmas adverts are an utter load of nausiating ****. How they can think any of those adverts convince us to spend more £££s in their stores is beyond me. Then again I happen to think that Xmas is a pile of **** anyway. Can't wait for January.

    Agreed, 100%. I have a colleague at work who put up her decorations before Halloween. Each to their own and everything, but... why?

    Scrooge was right! But seriously, so much trouble and expense for just one day.

    Technically it is one day, but really it’s most of December. I actually love the build up but the day itself is overrated. Although every other advert is now an Xmas advert, I tend to completely ignore them until December and then immerse myself into it for a month.

    I enjoy the run up to Christmas and even the catching up with family but New Years Eve, now that is always a let down and a big fuss about nothing.

    Christmas now a horrible experience. Stressful in the run up in thinking of what to buy for friends and family, shops and supermarkets rammed for weeks leading up to the big day and when the day comes a nice lunch, a game of monopoly and an uninspiring TV schedule with none of the good old days two Ronnie's or morecambe and wise specials.... And as for the size of quality street tins...

    (a) Shop online;
    (b) Watch Netflix, iPlayer, old shows on YouTube.

    Voila. Christmas sorted.

    The hassle of buying gifts for others plus the hassle of coming up with ideas for your own gift. Presents for anyone over 10 should be illegal. I have agreed an amnesty with all my family for birthdays and xmas but Mrs TuT won't buy that. Plus all my nieces and nephews. Which reminds me, one of them (never been good with names) had a birthday last Friday. Does a card this late do more harm than good ?

    The sheer fakery on display from all companies with actors pretending to be members of the public voicing their opinions on that most important of topics. Mince pies. As if you couldn't get just as good quality pie for cheaper. When will people stop being sheeple ?

    I’ve just noticed that as it’s the run up to Xmas every other add is a perfume add, which is annoying me.

    Usually followed by some hash tag to get people "involved" in the debate.

    What sort of a lobotomised zombie have you got to be to get suckered into participating in these manufactured debates to promote products? Which is your favourite bar of the twix, the left or the right? **** you, I eat them both together.

    This x 1000 when applied to people coming out of a cinema and saying how great the film they just watched was.

    Similar to the nationwide advert where those two idiots in the photobooth are pretending to best mates.

    Imagine a world where adverts could only tell you simple, pure, factual stuff.

    Million, by Paco Rabanne, smells a little like Lynx Africa, but with a hint of sandalwood

    Coke, it's giving your kids diabetes

    Tampax ultra, it stops your period blood going on to your clothes

    Lloyds, we don't offer the best savings rates or the cheapest mortgage rates.

    McDonald's - food which barely does the main thing that food is supposed to do to your body

    The one with Martin Freeman in. They forget a gift for Auny Doreen or whatever her name is. So his mrs orders her one on her phone right there on the spot, problem solved.

    Except it’s not though is it because Aunty Doreen is right there and the gift will presumably arrive to one of their houses, at the very earliest the day after.

    Yes and of course it's impossible to have done that with another phone/network combo. Then 75% of the advert time is spent on some boring pretend ice skating which is irrelevant to the product.

    Can someone explain the talksport advert where they ask what the best present for "men" is... Beard trimmer, beard comb, beard gel, beard dye, beard books, beard frames etc.. Don't follow the crowd, buy a Jaguar F-pace.

    Agreed. It doesn't make any sense. There are other ones about yoga and avocados which are equally baffling.

    The Lidl ( or is it Aldi?) Kevin the Carrot adverts. I'm called Kevin, and it's taken years to rid myself of the hilarious Kevin the Gerbil nickname, or Kevin the teenager, and now the whole thing is reignited by a carrot at war with a parsnip

    My other half laughs like a drain when it comes on.

    There have apparently been fights in the supermarket for people trying to buy this carrot! The world has gone mad

    As an above-average Lidl shopper I certainly see my fair share.
