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.

There is that bizzare advert that is driving me nuts (and so effective that I have no idea what it is supposed to be advertising!!) with the motivitational guy with the headphones 'I am going to win all the sports' and so forth. Utter toss...

Oh and there are apparently complaints going into the ASA (presumably from The Guardian's loyal reader) that the new Go Compare assaination adverts with the bazooka is promoting terrorism!!

So annoyed at this advert with it's dubbed British accents (when it was so obviously a couple of yanks) I youtubed the proper version out of curiousness. Slow morning.

Oh deep joy, the morons of webuyanycar.con have now moved into property with webuyanyhome.con and accompanied by an awfully sung crap advert to their usual low standard.

And whilst I was typing this, the Safestyle UK 'You buy one, you get one free' loony just popped back onto my telly, been a while since he was last around.

The payday loan one ***** me right off. 1743% interest but there's a 25% discount!

Also the arsehole lawyers for you where some ****hole in a suits walks towards the camera. I think there's a version where one of the smarmy ***** falls down the steps.

The 25% discount isn't even off the interest just the arrangement fee.

That ambulance chasing 'underdog' advert does my head in. The smug-looking animated mutt with the Joe Pasquale voice, all happy because he can sue his boss because he wasn't looking where he was going and tripped over his own feet.

'One Down' 3 Blokes and 1 Woman and they made sure it was the woman that went down.Thankfully I can avoid alot by using a PVR.

When visiting the folks,my dad turns over everytime there is adverts so you end up missing the start of what you were watching again or puts DigiText on to check the horse racing..Now thats annoying

The tropicana advert is annoying, with that bloke trying to look so all American apple pie with his knowledge of 'orange growin'. You can just tell behind closed doors he puts on a gimp mask and paddles his wife.

The Beechams Flu and Cold remedy 'Sherlock Holmes' advert which seems to have started today, another example of a badly redubbed foreign advert and unbelievably naff.

Why has that toothpaste company brought back the horrible "video diary" adverts, I thought they had died a very welcome death after the cringeworthy mineral water campaign a couple of years back...

Okay.. we get it Kevin Bacon... you 'know' loads of British references, now I've seen you tedious adverts too many times already and I think you are going to be around for months.

Actually the thing that annoys me most about this advert is that he's not even doing the Kevin Bacon game properly! They could at least try a six degrees of separation chain.. rather than just make some **** up. Grrrrrr

That incredibly stupid advert for the Ford B-Max with the guy high board diving through the open doors of the car must rank as one of the stupidest adverts of 2012 and that is a pretty hotly contested list I can tell you!!
