I loath those adverts where well-known football commentators narrate The Lads' wacky antics.

Does he appear with a nathan drake esq fringe, whilst operating a macbook one handedly in the window?

No, its worse than that. It is him and his very cute fiancé wittering on about how cool they are because they get to work together and when they finish work for the day as achingly hip fashion designers they get to go home and shag each other.

Not that I'm jealous or anything. :shifty:

The Suns super goals advert with the rooney over head shin job and Venebales doing the voice over, "right foot with an explosion, but with the beauty of a dance"

There's one advert on now that has someone singing the Weeds theme tune song (Little Boxes). Not sure what the advert is for, it's a crap version of the song too.

When I saw this thread had been bumped, I assumed it was because of that advert. The one good thing about it is Sean Bean's brief voiceover.

Besides the fact this advert reminds me why exactly it is I will never work again 'for the man' in a sh*tty office, subservient to some f*ckwit's corporate 'rules', this advert really winds me the f*ck up.

Perhaps it's the officious Irish b*tch, who clearly deserves to be knocked-out on the spot, or maybe it's the pathetic way the risible young man in the ad seems to find the answer to everything is a plate of Muckdonalds - after a morning of sitting in a little box room rearranging his pens on an empty desk. His *sigh* on receiving his offal is the final wind-up.

This is Britain, 2012. Tragic. Are you 'lovin' it?

The oddest part of that is where she walks in on him in the toilet. What the strawberry float is that all about?

That latest BT ad is on again and that ginger guy just makes me want to put his teeth on the kerb and stomp on his head :x

Whatever agency thought this whole thing was a good idea needs a night with Dale winton.

Clearly the message is "huh, since it seems like my life has turned to gooseberry fool, it's time to eat gooseberry fool". Eating at McDonald's is just another part of the corporate lifestyle nightmare. What morons thought this was a good ad?

KFC has joined the ranks of the companies making 'men are shite' adverts:



Someone drink the last of the milk? strawberry float off, don't tell me you wouldn't have done the same.
Oh no, you have to get off your arse and refill a water cooler? Boo strawberry floating hoo.
And it makes a change that a bloke gets served first, instead of a tart flashing her chest to get attention.
Stop pulling snotty strawberry floating faces at everyone and expecting the red carpet to be rolled out for you.

If the advert was flipped around, I guarantee the daily moan would have an article on the horrors of sexism ready on the double.

At least it was assured the kid in the Frosties ad would be brutally bullied in school.
