this is a basic thread, just post the advert that is on tv at the moment that bugs you.

At the moment the advert that bugs me is the one with the baby travelling on its trolly thing, the AD is for a kodak printer. whats yours?:)

PS: I know people will hate me for me hating that ad but it just bugs me.

Those advertisements on YouTube before you watch a video sometimes. They really annoy me and I find them quite pointless to actually be in some videos.

I absolutely adored the Curry's one not too long ago with R2-D2 and C3-PO :D. It was hilarious and brilliant and it never EVER got tiring. Shame it's never on anymore :(.

I don't even notice ads anymore, I just ignore them as soon as the break kicks in. Must be the fact that the light/color scheme is purposefully made more bright for ads (so that they can be noticed) but my hate of bright lights makes me ignore them.

I usually just press F5 and after the page refreshes the ad is gone.

Those adverts are both funny and annoying at the same time. It's funny because this guy is humiliating himself with his "singing" voice and it's annoying because they put it on so much!

I clicked this expecting to see a thread to the effect of:

"Hey, but I love A.D.!"
"Nah, B.C. is so much better."
"You squares. Your calendars are so conventional."

Damn.

There are SO MANY adverts that are currently annoying me:

1. Go Compare - I really don't think I need to say anything else.

2. Direct Line - ARGH! These ads have been on about 50,000 times and they're just driving me insane. They even have an ad for landlord insurance. WTF?

3. Iceland - I want to kill EVERYONE who was involved in the making of this ear bleeding excuse of an advert! This is worse than those Kerry Katona ones.

4. Nom - Extremely annoying advert with people making stupid sounds while eating a Yoghurt. I have to reach for the mute button everytime it plays.

5. Activia - "Packed with Activia's exclusive Bifidus culture." BIFIDUS WHAT?! Ads that make up scientific gibberish should be banned.

6. L'Oreal - Cheryl Cole = :hea:. Also, "Inspired by the science of genes." Oh just go away.

7. Pantene - "Make a SWIIIIIIISH." SHUT UP! :mad:

8. Halifax - Stupid people behaving like complete idiots on a radio show and ruining several songs in the process. I mean you, "ISA ISA Baby."

9. Mooooooooooooonpig.com - ARGH! :mad:

10. DFS - "All I want for Christmas is you." They've been playing this song since OCTOBER and I'm seriously sick of hearing it after the last 500,000,000 times.

11. All current Nintendo adverts especially that one with Jedward and another with JLS.

12. Coronation Street 50 - Everytime I hear that woman badly singing the Corrie theme, I'm forced to reach for the mute button. We get it ITV, Corrie is 50! You don't need to keep telling us every 15 minutes! :mad:

13. Actimel - "Packed with L.Casei Danone." Oh come on, stop making up such gibberish.

14. Febreze - Badly dubbed over English makes me want to hit that mute button.

15. MUSIC MAGPIE DOT CO DOT U K - AHHHHH, MY EARS! :(

16. Glade - "And it's from Glade you know." So? WHY DO I CARE?! :mad:

As you can see, I hate loads of adverts. I wouldn't be surprised if Go Compare was voted most irritating ad of 2010. It won that "award" last year. Also, I hope that opera singer appears on Most Annoying People 2010.

I did not hate it, but almost fell off the chair from laughter -

Franziska van Almsick* doing an ad for the most disadvantageous dress possible (H&M, or was it C&A?). :vlol:
I guess even Twiggy would have looked voluminous and misshapen in that dress.

*a multiple former swimming champion. She has a history for wearing awful dresses. (not on purpose)

There's one ad here that advertizes some sugar replacement that features really OTT clips of super-imposed leaves and strawberries being ran through said non-sugar. Complete with some crooning young woman that can not sing at all. It's implied that she's left her boyfriend over the damned non-sugar and is singing blissfully about it, too, so that's horribly depressing. The whole advert is just...no. :p

I can recognize that one just by hearing the first few seconds of it, it plays so often at work. That and that Sprint one where the guy's like "Callahan! You're on desk duty, turn in your weapon." :vlol:

Ads in youtube that pop up, and the ones that you are forced to watch before the video loads, im on DIAL UP!!!
Ads on DVD's, especially the really long ones where they have disabled the "skip" button.

Daybreak actually had an interview a while back with that stupid meerkat from the ComparetheMarket ads. Just goes to show how they've scraped their way through the bottom of the barrel already and are digging their way down through the Earth.

Go Compare to release a CHARITY SINGLE?! (http://www.postonline.co.uk/post/news/1929911/compare-releases-charity-christmas-single) :mad:
If that gets to #1, I'm gonna hate the music industry FOREVER!

Heck, I'd rather hear stuff from X Factor than listen to Gio.

I know it's for charity but ARGH!

Seriously, everything Xmas on TV is depressing. And In my country we start to see Xmas commercials in october.

Watch a couple hours of TV during the primetime without a remote control and you'll understand the increase of the suicide rate near Xmas.

I hate any ads that are mindless, (:hea:) loud for the sake of being loud (looking at you Go :hea: Compare :hea: >.>), too flashy (:hea::hea::hea:) or just stupid (:hea::hea::hea::hea:). Actually... I think that's all ads gone. Also, I hate the ads before Youtube Videos, and the ones that appear at the bottom of videos half way through. They really take you out of the moment if you're watching a really good video. :( I do understand why there are ads, but it's still really annoying anyway.

I hate it when you see bad adverts from clients that you work for and how they make you cringe!

Doesn't the U.S. screen ads every ten minutes or something!

I hate Compare the meerkat ads and those related insurance/comparison ones.
The recent Durex ad makes me wanna vom too.

I'm really hating all the adverts for the crappy CDs they expect us to buy for Christmas. How many more crappy covers of "You Raise Me Up" must I hear. Stuff like "The Chelsea Pensioners" or "The Soldiers." Who buys this rubbish?! :mad:

Also, the Morrisons ads are really annoying me. "...this comes from Italy", "no it doesn't, it comes from Morrisons." STUPID KIDS! :hea:
And why are they still using the same Take That song? They've been using it since 2008 for crying out loud!
