But I will make an exception when it's just too good - e.g. "What a van, what a van, what a van, what a mighty fine van". :datass:

Every time I hear that KFC one on the radio I imagine how much Ad in particular must enjoy it.

Something like "Wow, kapow, take a bow, if you know how" :lol: amazingly terrible.

Does consistently make me want KFC, though.

There's a dodgy ad doing the rounds on daytime TV at the moment according to mum, it shows a ridiculously easy wordsearch with the offer of a cash prize, but the small print says that calling to enter both comps (as there are two words supposedly to find in the puzzle) costs £10.80.

I've seen that a few times and yes it definitely isn't something any sane person would enter.

There's far cheaper to enter prize draws on daytime TV (with bigger prizes) for anyone desperate to try winning something.

"oh it must be my sun life letter"

They are certainly getting there monies worth from that advert it’s been going for years, they have edited it because it used to say “I have seen the adverts with Parki” but he’s not done them for so long they had to change it

I love these. The way they make it so easy that you don't even have to think in order to maximise the amount of people ringing up. The voiceover will be like, "Look at the wordsearch and try to find this: A British soap opera that started in the eighties on BBC 1 and stars Adam Woodyatt as Ian Beale."

Then you look at the wordsearch and it's like:

The worst thing about those 'over 50' plans is that if you stop paying at any point, they pay out nothing. So if you start them too soon you'll have paid in thousands more than they'll ever cash out.

True but with funeral prices rising all the time you don’t want to burden your family and plus you get some Amazon vouchers

Yep, though it's still not as bad as the schmaltzy McCain's one which has been doing the rounds for a while (they keep changing the voiceover script to try and keep it up to date).

You can't just refer to the track and not post itl! I went looking and found this cover on YouTube. It's not bad and makes me hear something different in the song but the miming and expressions are bad.

The advert that sponsors come dine with me is really annoying it’s for Galbani Italian Cheese and it’s just different people saying Galbani but wrongly like it’s the most awkward word to say

I record pretty much everything I want to watch these days, so I can skip the ads.
But the ones that stand out to me are the Snoop Dog Just Eat, heck the Just Eat ads are awful.

It's settled then, by popular demand, this year's GRcade Christmas song will be a dreary cover of an upbeat song.
