TV Adverts

Feb 17, 2004
Now, I don't want to appear to have prematurely turned into Victor Meldrew but what is it with TV advertising these days? It's almost as if Advertising Execs have had one too many snort of the old nose cleanser & collectively decided that if an ad annoys it therefore has permeated into the public's collective thoughts & vision.

My top 3 have to be (in no particular order): -
Halifax/Bank of Scotland starring that gimp who works for them (I mean this has gone on far too long, he was the "celebrity" guest at the British Speedway GP a few years ago, but that's another matter).
BabyBel with the "cheesy" no pun intended hallucegenic grins of all concerned & particularly the bunch of racing cyclists who joyfully ring their bells as they traverse a twee little bridge.
Kia Picanto voiced by that annoying self-important untalented bint from Smack The Pony in what can only be described as a voice somewhere between Nancy Dell' Olio & Nancy Lam. "Thinking Person's Small Car" more like box on wheels bought by cretins.

So, what's yours?
