    Any perfume advert. Natalie Portman. What would you do for love ? Well I wouldn't buy your overpriced tat for a start. The sheer vacuousness of these is mind boggling. Daisy. Daisy,Daisy uttered over and over again for Marc Jacobs. Sauvage etc.etc.

    And Elle Fanning who only got into the film industry like her sister thanks to her folks (no hint of nepotism of course) with that other awful lady Longoria uttering Hyaluronic acid in a flat stentorian monotone. Lies and pseudoscience.

    And then the dentists used to promote the latest in toothpaste technology. Garbage. Pity they cannot treat their NHS patients instead of running off to the private sector. Ant & Dec too. Pity Santander cannot use the money they spent on hiring these two financial experts on saving staff and keeping some branches open.

  3. Are these ads arguably doing their job by putting their products at the forefront of your minds by being so awful that they're memorable?!

  4. I like the Specsavers ads. Some make me chuckle.

    There's a Specsavers billboard up here in Sheffield on the way to IKEA that's printed upside down that just says "should've gone to Specsavers". Did make me smirk.

    Not really. The car ad I mentioned earlier that bangs on about electricity, I still have no idea what car it's advertising.

    Lilly James more than makes up for the awfulness of the slogan though.

    72 hour deodorant ads
    Let's face it someone fresh out of the shower, but no Lynx on , is more appealing than someone who
    hasn't seen water for 3 days but whacked on a bit of deo 3 days ago .

    Yes, had this in mind when I applied my 72 hour roll on this morning.

    Who is their target market? Homeless people who only get to shower once per week? People on jungle trecks with approximately 30 miles between waterfall?

    Get in the shower people! Bacteria in your armpit is what's making you smell. Masking it with some febreze is still rank.

    The mere thought of not showering at least once a day makes me feel dirty.

  13. "Kenko- made to uplift".

    1- uplift is not a verb, it's a noun.
    2- If you already had a football pitch sized piece of perfectly manicured grassland available, why weren't your kids playing football on it already?
    3- if this piece of grass is community of wned, is it okay to put pitch markings on it and install goals?
    4- why didn't you tell the miserable old ******* who shouts "you can't play here!" To just **** off? A lot less work involved.

    I think you need a nice calming and uplifting cup of coffee to make everything alright.

    Maybe a nice cup of Mellow Birds, which it was claimed in the 90s "will make you smile".

    1. It’s both.
  17. Can we expand this to include radio ads?

    Or that ridiculous one with the meerkats and their cousin the wombat.

    “Don’t wombat it, meerkat it”.

    **** off.

    A double diamond did wonders in the 80's.

    I always remember a teacher saying to me that sometimes it's the worst advertising you remember. I dare say he's not far off.

    The shake and vac music and lyrics are ingrained into my memory unfortunately.

    At least the Mars bar slogan spawned a great pisstake song by the Undertones.

    Another lamentable ad is the current one for Activia, with some woeful rap going through the alphabet. So badly done it could have been produced by halfwits on the Apprentice

    Came to mention this one, utterly ridiculous.

    It appears to be based on an amateur side, I play Sunday league still and if one of our lot started any kind of sh*t pre-match he’d get hammered!

    The Asda "Uniform for the People" ******** with the kiddies rapping.

    The slogan is annoying enough but one line in particular perplexes me:

    "Reinforced knees
    Make your mum go jeez!"

    I mean, what the actual ****.

    The Seekers split up half a century ago. They need a larger and more relevant target audience.

    Yes, it's time for them to move with the times and start referencing the New Seekers.

    I honestly thought they preferred coke. Or was that the New Seekers?
