are there any ads on TV that you just can't stand? I'm in Australia and i just hate those love calculator or cheat metre mobile ads that get played so often in prime time . what gets me is that it automatically subscribes you for $24 a week! so are there any ads on TV that piss you off, if so describe them and why you hate them here.

Ad nauseum is more like it.

The Quiznos Subs commercials a while back were pretty bad, but made for something fun to learn how to play, so you could repeat it at school.

WE LOVE THE SUBS!

THEY GOT A PEPPER BAR!

Yeah...pretty bad.

How about the Orbit gum commercial where the two women deliver quasi-witty insults to each other?

Yeah, I absolutely detest them, that and the bunny "you are my sweeetest love" bull****, if you know which I mean. I would buy that if somebody brutally muredered the ****ing thing in the video. Besides, I am convinced wholeheartedly that there is a subliminal message in that.

Also, have you seen the "tall jan is malicious" thing. That was abominably stupid.

I almost applied acid to my brain to burn away the memories of that f*cking crazy frog.

Any feminine hygeine or make-up advert.

What is it with hair product adverts and ****ing awful dubbing?

As the other guys said, car insurance adverts.

Anything involving toys for little girls. Dolls, bead things, 'polly pocket' etc.

Probably much more, but I can't think of any others.

Spam up! I f*cking hate that song with a passion! I will never eat spam because of that advert!

We have a new craze emerging in Australia as well. Designers are bringing out signature shampoos like Sunsilk Alex Perry Glow or **** like that similar to signature guitars, it's ridiculous!

The thing that ****s me about that crap is that alot of people must subscribe to that stuff because where else would they get all the money to advertise 5 times in every adbreak and on every station.

Yep, they are stupid enough too. I hear it every now and then at school, and if I do, I usually lay into whoever set it as their ringtone.

Magero, I think it is this concept ad about growing the perfect beer or something and the quality of the beer corresponds to the attractiveness of the person with it when extracted form some plant. That's my interpretation, I just know stupid, especially considering the great quality that beer ads normally have, what with VB campaigns, The "Big ad" and what not being hilarious.

Personally, I don't want to hear about the brand new, unmissable, innovative toothbrush, with 4 new colours of slightly differently angled bristles.

Its a toothbrush. Get over yourselves.

Same applies to razors. More blades =/= better. You'll just end up with a cheesegrater for your face.

If anyone in Aus has seen the beer ad with the guy growing people in the field...
Please...explain to me what the fuck that is....


a waste of your 30 seconds. wtf is that ad about?! whoever thought "hey we should have some tool planting hairs and harvesting the beer from the people that grow inside the hair" should be shot. good to see im not the only one who is extremely annoyed by ads.

Oh and ads that scream at you telling you to buy their cheap products.

Pretty much all adverts are stupid I think. The worst ones though are adverts for hair products and car ads.

You just summed up 100% of what I see when I'm watching something interesting, and then I change channels to more of that shit.

Well I was shopping for a new car. Which ones me? A cool convertible or an SUV? Too bad I didn’t know my credit was whack, cuz now I’m driving off the lot in a used sub compact…

Right.
First of all, I abhor all adverts in principle because they insult my intelligence. I don't need a break from the programme I am watching, and if I want to find out about products I might like to buy I'll use the fucking Internet.
In particular I detest adverts for:
- Personal injury lawyers (especially the one where it's Ruby's dad off EastEnders telling me that they're 'real lawyers')
- Calgon
- Anything aimed at housewives because it's so condescending
- Beauty products that are badly dubbed
- Services or products with fake testimonies from people who are clearly actors
- The Sun
- Anything to do with mobile phones
- Cars, normally really pretentious and don't tell you anything useful about them including the price
- Tesco, because of who it's aimed at
- Iceland (last time I checked Kerry Katona was an attention-seeking cokehead, not mother of the year)
