The Sky Movies advert bugs me (especially on the radio).

It's highlighting the fact that using On-Demand that movies are always "Ready" when you are, but the poor kid that voices the advert (and I think appears in the TV version) can't pronounce his R's.

Again with a radio one; KFC's 'urban' ads, with the "so called Lipton iced tea".

It's not "so called" that's what it is called!

Adverts for what you are watching during the break so as you 'fast forward' you end up stopping - it's a con - or a clever trick from Sky especially.

or any TUI one...

Was watching some films on 5 and they seemed to show the same adverts all the time. Especially the Sixt advert, where some 'mother' rings her son to tell him she's starring in an adult film.

I know their tagline is 'Finger Lickin' Good', but did KFC really think showing us a seemingly endless montage of people actually licking their fingers would result in anything other than mass vomiting?

The second AA ad isn’t quite as bad as the first, it’s bad sure but not as bad. Maybe the first one has cushioned me for the follow up.

The over the top-ness of many perfumes "I'm young free and single" but seem to live in a mansion in the centre of a large city. etc etc

It's a bizarre name for an organisation, given the negative connotations of the phrase
