Not a current one, but the Brita advert with that silly tart saying "It's my lovely cup of tea" has always rubbed me up the wrong way.

hundreds of adverts annoy me but all the recent chewing gum ones (the fighting plaque and mastication for the nation ones) have me edging towards bringing back hanging.

I can't believe it - page 4 and no mention of Sheila's wheels? Or did I miss it?

The one with the gorilla playing the drums to Phil Collins 'In The Air Tonight' is getting on my wick at the moment. Mainly because of the awful song.

You're not the only one

Only recently dawned on me that it was her, though. Maybe she's concentrating on her 'acting' these days.
But seriously, Kate - selling Kias? Surely you're worth more than that.

I love that one! I've only seen it once though so I can't say how it's going to stand up to repeated viewings

"Everyone knows a bloke like Mickey".

Well I don;t thankfuly, but then I always made a point of avoiding intolerably smug, narcissistic ************ who are so up themselves they probably spend three hours a day admiring the reflection in a gilt-edged mirror mounted above the bed.

If there's any justice in the world, any at all, that "I am so gorgeous you're probably shaky at the knees just looking at me " git will go bald.

Just seen the new advert for Iceland with that fat bird from Atomic Kitten and Jason Donovan singing - cringe-worthy!

Where do these people get these ideas from? How could anyone have thought that was a good idea?

Has the christmas Take That advert where they're prancing around with them models been mentioned?

I might find it more annoying due to the fact it's never off the bloody air.

Has anyone seen the Barnardo's one where the girl gets slapped on the back the of the head over and over?
It's not "annoying" but utterly horrific and completely unwatchable. You just have to turn over. I can understand why they made it like that, to bring home that this actually happens, but it's not going to make me pick up the phone.

Not a TV ad, but a radio one (so I know it's a little off topic!). Anyone who ever listens to TalkSport will probably know the advert for Citroen Berlingo Vans as it tends to get played at least once every ten minutes.

The advert consists of a man with a northern (possibly Geordie) voice getting ever more hysterical as his driver 'Bob' comes and goes in his van. The basic script for the advert is "Here comes Bob". "There goes Bob", "Here comes Bob", "There goes Bob". Then a bit of waffle about the van which you don't hear, because you've switched off as the advert is repeated so frequently. Then finally "Here comes Bob again".

I'd really like to know what is so hysterical about Bob driving his van and why he has to come and go so often. I've come to the conclusion that it's probably because he looks a right idiot driving a Citroen Berlingo back and forth all the time when a Ford Transit would do the same job in just one trip.

I've stopped buying that Sacla Pesto when that tithead in the kitchen banging things together appeared. I've since found other pesto tastes a lot nicer. Well done that advertising agency.
