Loco Back After The Break - Most Annoying TV Adverts Part 2

Kicking off the new thread about adverts that drive us up the wall or just have us going WTF?!?

The new J2O adverts with the cats/dogs/mice heads on human bodies at the party is creepy if not just a little bit disturbing.

Meanwhile I am finding the three students BT adverts uncomfortable, the Duran Duran one in particular is showing up that lad as being creepy stalker rape nutter guy and is getting worse with every episode in this series. Can't we have Esther McVery (I think that was her name, the Scottish lass) back?

Not ads as such but the "sponsored by Halfords" on Dave. God, all these people need to be tied down to furniture from Harvery and put out of everyone's misery.

The Advanced Hair Studio epic is back, rejigged, still features Fox FM Man of the Year 1897 and amazingly is now even longer.

Makes me want to pull my hair out ironically...

There seems to have been a veritable tide of terrible adverts that have assaulted my eyes and ears in the last 24 hours including:

The Rubicon drink advert with the band rising up out of the water - utterly silly!

Dating website adverts that feature beautiful people that would never have trouble getting a date and therefore would never use a dating website.

The various P&G (Procter & gamble) adverts which it would appear means we now have an official sanitary towel of the Olympic Games!! Can't wait to see Olympic Park Security checking all incoming visitors for approved product compliance on that one...

Phones 4 You's latest 'effort' which seems to have ressurected the career of Dean Gaffney (remember him?!?) for about three seconds.

T-Mobile's awful Jubillesque rubbish and indeed anything else that features that monunental prancing waste of space Louis Spence.

It's not annoying in that's it a bad advert but the self-storage advert with the teddy bear and the boy annoys me - as I keep thinking he is quoting lines from a famous film but can't think what film it is.

The Oreo advert with the little girl explaining to daddy how to eat them - I dont know why but that little girl proper creeps me out, not sure if its the voice (if its actually hers or its some clever cgi syncing or something) but just find it so annoying!

The new "Ambulance chasers" in relation to reclaiming PPI, or any of those for those "Legal" payday Loan[shark] outfits.

That bloody photography student skydiving nonsense that seems to be everywhere. Why would you be given a mobile phone to capture a photo for publication after the expense of organising a skydiving photshoot!? Actually brings me to swearing every time I see it.

Maybe after spending all that money on a plane, a model and film crew all they had left to spend for the photographer was **** HTC phone.

skydiving seems to be the craze at the advertising agencies this year, there's that bloody stupid Nissam Juke one along very similar lines.

Why not just through the marketing team out of a perfectly good plane?

Not seen that yet. I was fooled (for half a day until I saw another) by their spray-painted billboards.
