    I've got to say, I'm enjoying the recent mini trend for thinly veiled pro EU adverts that's popped up of late - The HSBC bank one with Richard Ayoade and the Ancestry one.

    I can imagine them really pissing off the Brexiteers.

    The HSBC one is excellent and not overly subtle.

    Not sure if it's been mentioned yet, but the most recent Vodafone advert that's slightly racist where Tim from The Office assumes a man and his wife who have lost their bag are trying to kill him because they're asian is pretty awful.

    It's f*&king awful because it's got Martin Freeman in it.
    Doesn't matter what it's advertising.

    I don't find River Island's 'SS18' ad campaign annoying at all.

    Labels have been pervasive in society for far too long, whether it’s gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, religion or others.

    Because I enjoy a healthy dose of identity politics in my adverts, not have a clothes retailer just stick to what they're good at. We need to see this in our adverts :rolleyes:

    Yet scroll to the bottom of their website and it'll state 'Shop Men' & 'Shop Women'. Someone clearly didn't get the memo!

    Can someone explain what the hell the WeBuyAnyCar / Phillip Schofield thing is all about? Has PS got incriminating photos of the WBAC owner or something, because I'm struggling to make any other mental leap that puts those two together.

    They've started reshowing the Maltesers ad about the disabled girl wanking off her boyfriend - all kinds of o_O

    Not exactly annoying (as I don't see it enough) but I get to enjoy these fantastic Entresto ads (tablets for heart failure) when streaming various US shows.

    They're rather creepy, and have a bit of a Total Recall/Black Mirror vibe about them. Interesting that about 50% of the text and dialogue is about how they can cause death to unborn babies, and the other fatal 'side-effects', all whilst a sickeningly saccharine version of 'Tomorrow' plays in the background.

    The Sun Life over 50's plan one.

    Not only are the plans shit the advert is two old people who are enthusiastically saying they can't wait to fucking die.

    That fucking Nationwide advert with the two girls on the keyboard! Could potentially be the worst advert of 2018!

    All of the Maltesers ads are my vote for worst advert/s of 2018, even if (as referred to above) they're not new.

    And they made more than one. I just assumed it was a tax write-off.

    And at the same time it's not actually a pro-EU advert. It could easily be spun in terms of the brexiteers claimed desire to do a better deal for african farmers. You could understand it as a call to having a soft brexit with little difficulty though, but that's only an anethema to the most racist of the brexiteers, I find.

    They're sisters in real life, mostly doing YouTube songs that went big with some viral song they wrote and performed. They seem to have regular spots on some of the radio4 shows, like the Now Show and do write some funny stuff, but those adverts really are dire.

    The McDonalds What's a Flat White ad is particularly bad, because it's the ultimate straw man fucking ad. UGH look at this pretentious barista! Isn't he awfully patronising! You don't want that do you? You want a simple down to earth lass who just tells you what the hell a flat white is, no fuss. So don't go to an independent coffee shop, come to us! Come to us!! We're good for you.

    We know what's best for you we do. We're just like you. We can't even spell cupacheeknow coffee, only speccy bastards and the gays know what that is and your not one of those are you. McDonald's: coffee for cretins.
