Presumably no copies of "When You Were Eating Ice-Cream" by Let's Whisper are owned by the above household. ;-)

who is that man who keeps invading the nation's kitchens and lobbing huge great shovelfuls of so-called phildalephia cream cheese in their teas... which they all seem to respond to as if this is somehow a good thing... the man himself looks like a shuffling advert for not sticking cream cheese in your dinner, his every artery seems clogged full of the stuff... really somebody should be taking the cheese off him... he calls what he does to people's food 'a philly makeover' which is surely destined for the profanisaurus conjuring up as it does the image of some poor dear on her knees in a provincial novotel surrounded by gasping masked men all joylessly silently working their way to 'a conclusion of sorts' as simon armitage takes notes in the corner for an opera only channel 4 would choose to commission

anyway, it's a very queasy advert

Ah well, you see, Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without a what-the...? perfume ad campaign or three. Anyone else remember this crock of merde from exactly 20 years ago?

Shot on location at the Grand Hotel in Scarborough. Voiceover by Alain Prost. Music by Lord Sugar. Probably.

How many famous people do you think were busy the weekend this was filmed?

I expect it's the creatives at the ad agency, they don't want to leave that magic time in their last year at university... sadly for the geniuses behind this gem their last year in university was in 1996... either that or the director is gaz coombes aunty or something

I certainly won't be buying a toyota yaris this week and it's all the fault of this advert

let that be a lesson to 'em

i've seen people getting remarkably irate about gaz appearing in that advert, as though he's ian mackaye and has never sold his music to an advertising company or something

he can't be that busy now supergrass have split up; i imagine the advert filled a few minutes in his massively empty schedule

I feel shamed to admit this but I thought that latest Travel Supermarket advert with Jedward was rather chucklesome.

That new Co-op advert is cooking my swede. It's a shop that sells fruit and veg and cake. It's not a fucking lifestyle choice.

The new Jobsite advert where Max Beesley tells unemployed people to "stop looking at You Tube all day" and apply for jobs makes me want to break things.

that virgin media advert with somebody attempting to be christopher eccleston or possibly christopher eccleston but certainly someone gritty and northern reading the lyrics to 'our house' by madness probably from an old copy of smash hits

I saw that last night.

'Shite' - was the only word that summed it up.

Oh, I'd assumed that was MacDonald's, because of their previous adverts with poems and stuff. The power of advertising, eh?

If I have to see that Maybelline ad where the girl says that she's 'quite emotionally attached to mascara' one more time, I'm going to stab my own eyes out with mine.

the ickier 'peace love storage' advert where some actors who'll never work again pretend to be 'improv comics' (the very worst type of comedian, below even impressionists) doing 'funny' 'improvisations' on the battle of the sexes that will probably lead to males and females alike kicking their tv's into tiny pieces before starting on their ickier 'billy' book cases and then meatballs

and no court in the land would convict them

here look at it:

I actually think that's a good advert. I don't find it particularly funny - though it is funnier than most episodes of Mock the Week - but I think it works as an ad, it's pretty well done.

No, I think that is truly dreadful. It's the 'improv' and then the actual ninja. Amongst other things.
