The latest McDonalds advert is annoying, mainly because it doesn't end the way you want it to, with the old guy gunning down the youths Charles Bronson style.

They should have asked Michael Caine to do it (Harry Brown) Style

I See they edited the creepy bit with the boy carrying "his son" up the stairs out of the Robinson ad. It freaked me out a bit.

Meanwhile I'm surprised no ones mentioned this:

Ah yes, more meerkats in adverts. Just what we needed in this house. Not sure if they're worse than the Wonga puppets.

Thankfully we manage to avoid most adverts nowadays as we tend to watch mostly recorded stuff and as we've set up one of the buttons on our remote to skip forward 4 minutes we cut out most of the visual spam.

Sorry - had to resurrect this thread for this current ball-bag of a commercial that thinks it's still the 1980's and 2in1 fabric softener is "fandangled" and that "extra speckles" is somehow a good thing.

Truly awful...

This is ******* me off... truly terrible advert. The cinema adverts have been in steep decline since the Orange ones, and they weren't that great. What kind of music is that even??



Also it's entire point is 'biggest network, faster overall speeds' .. such a load of irrelevant ****. EE created their 4G network by cutting sections of 3G network. Who gives a damn if you can stand somewhere on Oxford street and get 25Mbps. They should be selling these networks on 1Mbps EVERYWHERE!! from the valleys to Shetland or whatever. *******.

Sky using Al Pacino for broadband ads was annoying enough, now Harrison Ford is advertising Sky Movies. He can't be that desperate...

I like the advert, like the use of the One Republic song.

Just thought I'd bump this post with this beauty



Absolutely genius from the Go Compare ad agency...apparently really upsetting people from Birmingham.

I know the guy in the advert...always nice reading tweets saying they want to stab your mate in the face

I have no idea why and I know it's fairly old but I laugh everytime I see this advert. The jelly head really makes me LOL.
