"MOON # PIIIG##"

I started off hating those ads, but then the crapness and cheapness of it grew on me, and I like them now. I have also used them lots of times.

The George Clooney ones don't even make sense, though. There's loads of those little gold pod things lying around, so why does it matter if that bird takes the last one.

Not so much the advert but the voiceover guy for the Halfords ones does my head in.

How about '#Knockoff Nigel downloads knockoff films#'?

That'll save the film industry.

Just like all the anti piracy ads on DVD's, all they make me think is "if I had a copy of the film I wouldn't have to sit through this!"

Thing is, you probably would download a car if you could and get away with it

That new "new golf" advert is a bit violent. Dude smacks himself in the forehead with a metal pole.. leaves a mark. It is kind of cool though... Frankly I'm torn.

Nudity needs to come to pre-watershed advertising before casual violence. Otherwise we are no better than the Americans.

It's had some complaints about the violence and is being investigated.

Just seen the new..... Bodyform ad. Hunky* bloke bumps in girl, she drops her bag and said product falls out, both reach for it and then bloke smiles at girl in a very un-"hey you're on your period and a should be wanting to die of shame for knowing this" way. Not at all realistic.

* As a card carrying hetro I can only assume in female eyes that he is "hunky"

I've just seen half an advert for men's hair dye. Two kids start talking to their dad about how he should have a new shagging partner by now. They hand him the hair dye box....

...luckily the remote was close enough for me to be able to change the channel before I vomited all over myself. If the second half has some kind of post modern twist, which I doubt, then maybe karma will allow the advertising company employees to keep one limb each. If there isn't some kind of joke at the end.... then... I just don't know .... the human race is dead to me.

Those Natwest money sense adverts. The people that work there annoy me.
