So, 2010 has arrived and has brought along with it MORE RUBBISH ADVERTS that make you want to smash your telly.

What are your WORST TV ads?

Here are mine:

GoCompare - This has got to be not just the most annoying TV ad of 2009/10 but also probably most annoying in HISTORY! :mad: Why do we need FIVE versions of these ads with a very annoying opera singer belting out the words "GO COMPAAAARE!?!" Everytime it comes on, I'm forced to mute this rubbish.

ALL Cash for Gold ads - Seriously, this rubbish just screams SCAM! Why is Dale Winton in a Cash My Gold ad?! :hea: If I had any unwanted Gold then I'm not gonna send it to these rip off merchants!

Halifax - I have hated all Halifax adverts in the past but this latest one were they are pretending to be a radio station is just AWFUL! :mad:
What the ad is saying is that their account gives you an extra 5 each month but you have to pay in 1,000 EVERY month. Why would 5 make anyone want to Hi 5? This works out as 0.05% which really is just tiny.

Envirofone - Yeah, I'd like to see ANYONE get 150 from these people. I've tried entering a few phones on there and the highest I came across was like 15. I'm guessing you only get 150 if it's a brand new iPhone or something like that.
Also, the guy who shouts "WONGA!" really does my head in! :hea:

Webuyanycar - Very annoying song and stupid dancers make me NEVER want to use this service.

ALL 118 service ads - I seriously can't see why anyone would want to use this directory service on the phone as the costs are just beyond :cen: ridiculous and this can be done FREE online. One of the ads I saw said it costs 40p PER MINUTE and a 99p connection charge. So after one minute that's already cost 1.39. Just why?

NHS - I am just sick to death of seeing an NHS ad every time. All these "quit smoking" ads are just very annoying especially the one with CHILDREN. Argh, I just hate ads that use kids. :mad:

Dulco Ease - Disgusting advert. Why are these women at a CAFE table discussing their toilet problems?!

Activia - I'm am really getting sick of seeing ads that make up scentific gibberish like "Bifidus Actiregularis." What the heck is that supposed to be?! Just hearing the words "Tummy Loving Care" makes me want to go INSANE! :hea:

There are more but these are my most annoying.

The one created by Slovakian T-Mobile. Carols singers meet a girl on the street and sing her a message from her boyfriend: Hi, Cristina, my parents have gone away for a weekend, should I fill up a bath tub?
I hate it so much that Ive transformed it into: Hi, Cristina, my parents have gone away for a weekend, should I fill up a bath tub, or there will be hardcore sex only?
SO embarassing

Seriously, that was really bad.

I don't know about your countries, but over here from roughly midnight on they have ads for "phone-sex" and such.

The most famous one was a woman in black leather with a whip, whipping it in sync with the text : "Call! Me! Now!" 0190-whatever.

I don't know the very most ads / stuff that is advertised you all mentioned.

But activia - In one of their ads, what they basically are saying is - would I eat that, I could better fart. :vlol:
Wording is different though.

I do not find them overly annoying, I just don't get it. The city center is full of "on-spot" gold-byers, signs in the pedestrian area show.

How is sending gold to and money fro (that costs - p&p plus bank fees) going to raise the money I get for my gold. (no, don't have any :p)

Not strictly and advert in the sense that it's not a commercial, but I can't stand the campaign the BBC are running at the moment that's plugging 25 years of Eastenders. It's not so much the talking head parts, those bits are fine, it's the annoying voice over who says the last line...

"We want your doof doofs."

Shut up, you idiot :smk:
