Trev, do you read Nuts, enjoy drinking WKD, wear Lynx deodorant and only talk about sports during sports programmes?

If so, you need the sauce of manliness in your life (that's the tagline, 'the sauce of manliness')

And you're 15 years old

Who's created this demographic so beloved of advertisers? Jonathan King in the back of his roller, asking a shy teenager if he's got a WKD side and following that up by asking if he'd like a look at his Nuts?

It's a fallen world

I can't find it on YouTube but there's currently a Levi's advert on in cinemas that makes me want to hurt people.

Those Hive adverts make me want to saw my own ears off. Also, I'm pretty sure it's the type of thing that the average punter or Drowned In Sound writer thinks of when they hear the word "indiepop"

If I was looking to buy a new car I'm pretty sure that the ability to do a back flip over a helicopter would be pretty low on the list.

These aren't horrible adverts, but there isn't an Amazing Adverts (From Channel TV Years Ago) thread.





And best of all, the revelation that beefburgers were invented in Jersey in 1977, even if the name needed some work.

The new Wonga advert contains the phrase 'hard working people'. Wankers!

I just saw this advert on the telly:



I wasn't really paying attention at first and thought I'd misunderstood so had look it up to make sure and yes it's basically saying when your zero hours contract doesn't give you enough hours to live on after you've had some time off sick then get a payday loan and everything will be jolly and nice.

Urrgh.

I wonder if the follow up will show the bit where she gets thrown out of her flat.

I really hate that fucking Trip Advisor advert where the dog barks "book, book!", I haven't got a problem with the bourgeoisie going on holidays in other people's misery, I mean it is essentially a vicious and venal act of capitalism indulging in tourism, a means to parade one's western capitalist entitlement and lord it over the locals (the definition of tourism, look it up), we all accept that but it's an 'oliday, innit? and everyone deserves an 'oliday, don't they? once or twice a year, it's deserved, we work so hard compared to the rest of the world that can't afford holidays... and sometimes, even for povs, it's nice to look at pictures of the moneyed and beautiful (the two go hand in hand, obviously) frolicking on sand and in sea if only to remind ourselves how low down the pecking order we are and how much of a struggle is required before a complete overthrow of the boss classes is achieved and we have their greedy pig heads on spikes... but I digress, I hate the fucking advert because of the "book, book!" thing, which I don't think is actually a dog saying that (yes, adverts lie to us, wake up Britain!), and it's so fucking loud, you should be able to zone out of adverts and contemplate class struggle or whatever that growing stain is on the wall but this one doesn't allow you to, it's seemingly the loudest thing on television, as oppressive and in your face as the jackboot of fascism

Trying to find the advert online to appal you with, I chanced upon the American version... and was shocked and disgusted and outraged to discover that they get an origin story, an explanation for this travesty.. something the 51st state is denied, we just get the fucking dog barking "book! book!" and have to figure it out ourselves or, as I expect Trip Advisor planned it all along, obediantly book a disgusting holiday

All too typical of Cameron's bumdribble Britain... we are all prostitutes

I've not seen the Trip Advisor advert but I have heard it. Yesterday I had a bit of a hangover and I heard this noise: a terrifying sound - an irruption to my brain. It gave me the fear. I'm glad to find out that it's just an advert.

'Inspirational' bank adverts can do one.

That Just Eat one where a lady sings about the joys of chicken madras to the tune of Groove Armada's "I See You Baby" may show up in my psychiatric evaluation after I finally snap and go on some sort of spree.

It's annoying is what I'm saying.
