    Well the BBC get my vote to start with - those bloody annoying "kids grow long necks" CBEEBIES ads.

    Also the "HOW childhood memories decimated by being turned into a tampon commercial" ones on the commercial channels.

    Any more!?

    Those 118 ads, mostly I just hear them on the radio, they do my head in.

    Radio ads - don't even get me started on 'em. Anyone who listens to Fox FM in the Oxford area in the morning will tell you about the Coldseal ads (a bunch of blokes who sound like The Wurzels, singing these bloody annoying songs about Coldseal)

    Give me a bowie knife and let me into the studio when they're recording a session.

    Oh and the freeview ads are getting right on my tits too. The latest one about Henman having "tennis balls" - er, yuk.

    We get those 'oop North' as well. I'd like to double-glaze them into a box and let them run out of air.

    Might have mentioned this one before, but the "Old El Paso" ad where the guy's lovingly cooking dinner for his incredibly sarcastic girlfriend who's on the phone to her mate.

    "oh...he's chopping something now...oh yeah, probably tastes like monkey sick"

    I would stove that beeatch's head in with the pan if I was that guy. Ungrateful sow!

    The current Evian ones - where they've got some bloody terrible kids singing Queen's "We Will Rock You" slightly out of tune, and then they chop one of the bars of the 'chorus' bit in half so that they can cram in the "We Will Rock You" line twice before the commercial ends. If you're going to use a well known song on an advert, use the fuggin' proper version!!!!

    And anything by GAP just irritates the fuck out of me. I won't buy their clothes purely on the principle that their adverts suck.

    My mate used to hate the advert that went...


    "Iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii'm sticking with you, 'cos Iiiiiii'm made out of glue"

    I took great pleasure in recording it onto his answerphone and emailing him the video!

    What I hate is the whole 'dumb men' thing going on at the moment, it seems like all the men in ads directed at women are f**king idiots who couldn't pour piss out of a boot even if the directions were printed on the heel.

    That and the fact that (generally) they love to shout at you in increasingly irritating voices!!!!

    AOL adverts with that bloody stuck-up tart in them. I'd like to smash her prissy digital face in.

    They'll regret it. They'll never manage to uninstall that watch from their wrist. They'll take it off but they'll find that it's suddenly back on there. Or they'll finally think they've gotten rid of it, but will then find that no other watch will work any more!

    Elephant.co.uk. For cheap insurance go to elephant.co.uk because at elephant.co.uk we will mention our elephant.co.uk web address about 50 times during the advert. So come over to elephant.co.uk and see what you could save. That's elephant.co.uk.

    FUCOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOF.

    ... and they'll also find that once they're free of the blessed thing they'll end up snowed under with junkmail from every company under the sun...oh and free AOL installation disks too, needless to say.

    I also hate the current 'Orange phone trainers' adverts. I want a phone to speak to people who aren't in the same room as me and send the odd text message for those occasions when I really can't be arsed to engage in conversation with someone. If it's got some simple games to play when I'm on the train or waiting for some friends to meet me in the pub, great, but I don't need some monkey wasting my time telling me how I can help increase the amount of money Orange makes out of its customers by using lots of services I have no need for nor interest in.

    Fuck off!!!

    At least AOL are now sending those out in proper DVD cases which are actually useful as spares or to store those setup/driver CDs that just came in a paper envelope.

    Thanks AOL! Shame your CD just went straight in the bin! :)

    That Ford ad where the kids drive off playing Right Said Fred on the stereo - WTF?!!!

    Yeah that one makes me laugh. Even though the bird's do-able, if I was the guy I'd ask to be let out of the car if she started playing that kind of music on a first date.

    Fair enough. I think I just have an irrational hatred of adverts with smart-arse kids in. :)

    AOL have stopped using connie in their ads - now they just use loads of word that end in 'ate' and replace them with 8 - because its AOL 8.

    I never listen to the radio and mostly record stuff off the TV and just FF the ads. The BBC are the worst for ads - those fucking dancing women piss me off even at x30 playback.

    All the tacky insurance adverts on the non-mainstream channels. Just try watching Challenge! I mean, adverts made in Powerpoint???

    Oh, and the good ol' Games Network has all those classy chat-line ads at night. They're better than the programs!

    Using "8" instead of "ate", ffrr wouldn't catch me doing that.

    Shall I sue them ?

    Edit -

    Oh, I h8 the add about female bladder leakage on at lunch times. Do you mind love, I was enjoying my lime cordial with my beef butty.

    I hate when you put a DVD on and at the beginning of the DVD you have to sit and watch the crappy company logo's (usually numerous), copyright warnings, other movie adverts and pictures of there holidays, moms, dads, kids .... you get my point hopefully.
    Atleast on videos you could fast forward that shit. They should seriously let you press Menu whenever you like.
