I quoted their naughty list bit when my brother's wife (aka the wicked witch) took her 5 year old daughter's advent calendar away and said christmas was cancelled.

Can't stand that Maltesers ad at the moment with the 4 Karens (well, let's just assume they are) gurning into their webcams while one is hiding under the stairs.

It wouldn't be so bad, but the bloody thing is EVERYWHERE! I can't even get away from it on YouTube, and it even runs on MY videos so I am making money from an ad i hate!

I DON'T KNOW WHY I AM YELLING AND MOANING ABOUT THIS IN CAPITALS RIGHT NOW! I'M MAKING MONEY FROM IT!

The Kia Niro advert is annoying, mainly because it’s on all the time and has been for quite a while now

I routinely find myself to be the only person here who likes the Nationwide poetry ads. :lol:

Oh my god, modern day 'poetry' like that boils my piss. Its so strawberry floating easy to do on that level too, like nursery level freestyle rapping.

Posting on grcade, da place where gaming memories are made. In the morning light we play Tetris, but don't fink of da 'lectrics. What's the metrics, many many times we get measured, but like gunstar heroes, da futures not treasured.

Utter playground level bollocks.

Has any seen the ad for that Coronation Street mobile 'game', they obviously couldn't afford the actual music from the program as it has an appallingly bad sound-alike tune in the background.

It almost sounds like somebody described the real thing to someone who'd never heard it before and then asked them to do a cover version made entirely from stock samples of brass bands.

Its actually incredible how they've managed to make it sound so ear blisteringly bad (I mean the real thing already makes me want to tear my ears off as it is).

What is it with gooseberry fool poems being a staple of so many adverts lately? Just awful. :dread:

One of the worst I've seen lately is for Cupra. We're selling a new car? I know, let's find an even more gormless-sounding version of Romesh Ranganathan to spout gooseberry fool poetry over images of our car. :fp:

There's one on YouTube here at the moment that does my absolute skull in.

It's for some investment thing and it looks like, I dunno, there's limited subscriptions allowed and so you have to 'get a chance' to be allowed to invest or something. Anyway, the advert just cold opens with some strawberry floating screaming Cantonese bint abrasively screaming at the top of her voice that she 'got it', and it's so strawberry floating annoying. Just watching any normal video and then "bwwwarghghghahrgjehrgjjaaaargh! *high pitched Cantonese nonsense*"

Longest 5 seconds of my life.

The worst ads on YouTube at the minute are the Candy Crush Saga ones where (fictional?) YouTubers are just absolutely raving about how it’s the most relaxing thing to do in the fakest way imaginable.

It's the weird cadence to then from being edited down that I find most annoying.

They still don't beat the bizarre and terrible ads for mobile games that are always about a "LVL 1 Crook" taking over the territory of the "LVL 30 Boss", or blatant Age of Empires knockoffs though.

That Duracell one with the rhinos shagging (or whatever they are). The irony being this came up on my YT ads last night (one of the unskippable ones), so despite the fact that i have duracell batteries in my remote I STILL CAN'T SKIP THE ADVERT.

Worst is when either at the start of a video or mid way thru a video they promote that video game "calling it the best thing ever" its so forced and annoying
