Annoying advertisements

Is anyone else annoyed by certain advertisements?
I am particularly bewildered and maddened by the Supernoodle one, why has the poor woman got a donkey on her back? And the final yell of “Tasteeeeeeeeeeeeeee” is dreadful.
Definitely puts me off ever buying the product, but I’ll ring an animal charity first and get that donkey rescued!

I know you are picking out a certain advert but I wish all gambling advertisements were forbidden, they cause so much misery.

The ad for Parsley Box makes me cringe and certainly would not encourage me to buy the awful looking meals that you keep in a cupboard.

Without doubt, the Surf advertisement with Dani Dyer.

Perf with surf.
Noooooo!

I hate the one about clean bottoms and the Marc Jacobs Daisy Daisy perfume one.

Snap Notsoold I don't get it either 🤔

I’ve never seen the ad, but strangely I received a letter today, addressed to me personally, with all the Parsley Box adverts in it.
A special offer of 10 of our ‘best selling’ meals for £20. As I don’t like any of their ‘best selling’ meals, I won’t be using the offer.

But the one I love is the Natiowide advert ...”oh no, he’s turned up again” 😂

I hate nearly all of them here. The Aldi ones are better than most but the Australian standard of ads is dire and far too many of them.

I hate the donkey/noodle one as well notsooldat75 so stupid and irritating.
Perf with Surf is a close second on my hit list.

I do like the bulldog going down the slide, always makes me smile.

Daisy daisy Marc Jacobs and anything with Philip Schofield

The beardy bloke lipsynching to something about 'having a good feeling'. So much gurning.

And for yet more gurning, strained sinews and eyebrow contortions - the Plus Net Peter Kay wannabe.

Carol Vorderman envy selling bloody life insurance and trying to look sincere.

Sticky toffee pudding!? hmm

Awful, isn't it.

Eamonn Holmes advising on Equity Release. It can be the worst thing homeowners could do.

Jane Macdonald advertising Royale Homes...would be more believable if she lived in one as she's in the age bracket grin. Do they have a Royale Life park in Wakefield I wonder?

honeyrose Sat 13-Mar-21 09:49:37

The one about a denture fixative. An elegant lady with an insincere smile, biting into a crispy green apple and saying “now you can enjoy your evenings”. For goodness sake .....!

BlueBelle Sat 13-Mar-21 09:58:29

I ve got to admit I blank out during most of them I wouldn’t have a clue what half of them are about I don’t think I ve seen the super noodle one, sounds bizarre, I hate the teeth cleaning one with a donkey talking, can’t stand the Carol vordaman or the Debbie McGee with her ‘I m glad we ve had our little talk aren’t you’ I want to hit her (not really I m not a violent person) I hate all the personal wee period and dry vagina ones yuk yuk ...

I don’t think I have ever bought anything because of an advert
Cant stand any of them

deffo the Daisy Daisy one. And that awful woman in the gym advertising Tena

Oldwoman70 Sat 13-Mar-21 10:13:00

Definitely the Daisy one, Snoop Dog advertising JustEat and the Cinch ads

I also dislike the ad for Dior J'dore - how does having a bunch of women walking around wearing see through dresses help to sell perfume?

annodomini Sat 13-Mar-21 10:30:07

The advertisement for a walk-in bath, in which a woman is relaxing, wearing a swimsuit.

The hair colouring one with Stacey Doolie (?) - dreadful. They don't seem to space out the adverts either. If you've seen it once during the evening you are sure to see the same one about six more times unless you turn off!
I do like the dog on the slide though.

Dinahmo Sat 13-Mar-21 10:54:54

Marc Jacobs Daisy Daisy Daisy. Those girls' voices are vapid and I hate the nasal tone. American I think.

Car adverts that try to promote how exciting one's life would be if only we owned this or that brand.
