Are there any advertisements that really give you the :bou::bou::bou::bou:s? Print, radio, tv; there's always something that just :bou::bou::bou::bou:s you off. My current pet hate is an ad for a company called National Tiles, which is voiced by a guy called Frank Walker. I hate this man with a passion and have almost crashed my car scrambling to change station. Once he was on my backup station too, I almost cried.

Anyway I've been able to listen to him in this form. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ua52DFuWyk) Otherwise, no, go DIAF Frank Walker you toss.

So, any ads that get your blood boiling?

YouTube - Molfix Reklama - Shqip - Funny Video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G8oEI84slxc)

It's in Albanian. So annoying :mad2:, and they show it 100 times a day.

The god damn Good Guys ad (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oBvy3NeP7P8) or some variation of it is on every 10 minutes whenever I watch TV.

Oh it seems some of you want seconds or more, I could be kind and leave you to the less mind rape style adverts in the UK but oh no, here goes:

Go Compare Egypt (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Wz2A3Tqiuo)
Halifax isa isa (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HVIMMmqwe6Q)
We buy any car original (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MXiJBp7HK5o)
We buy any car quick quick (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6lylLAxzS4E)


Then ending this post on a real sombre moment here, I feel almost like Chris Tarrant presenting Tarrant On TV where for the last hour or so I've made you laugh and now I'm going to make you think

Any kind of popup ad. Especially if it has annoying music or an autoplaying video on it. :|

Yes I realize that's the opposite of the topic.

I can't think of any ads in particular, but it bugs the :bou::bou::bou::bou: outta me that Hulu asks me if the ad is relevant to me, and then keeps showing me the same ad no matter how many times I say "No." Hulu is trolling me.

Also, DMKA has no soul.

While I hate most adverts, I am not simply a total ad hater. I actually understand a good advert and should obviously be king of adverts.
For example, I liked this advert a lot BEFORE it was voted ad of the decade in Britain.

YouTube - New Hovis ad depicting the last 122 years (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S4tFzuFGUOI)

Oh man, don't get me started on New Zealand ads. They're all awful. :/

I'm only bothered when I feel like an ad is insulting my intelligence. Like BUY THIS GAME 'CAUSE YOUR MOM HATES IT

I disagree. I miss a lot of the NZ ads. All the best ads I've seen are from NZ, and I've watched ads over in the UK for nine years now, and a limited selection of (thanks to various TV shows, MyP2P and a short visit to America) American ads for some time as well. NZ's best ad remains a sort of concatonation of ads. It had a car ad, an NZ police ad, I think a Steinlager ad and possibly others. Then there was an All Blacks ad at the end of it - or at least an ad featuring the All Blacks. The were training using a scrum machine, which basically involves them collectively pushing into something like this (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scrum_machine) and then, after a while, they broke it (via pure strength, of course) and kept pushing... into the previous ads. They pushed it into the car from the car ad, and the car crunched up as if it drove into a brick wall. Then they smashed it into various other things, and at the end they get up and dust themselves off as various logos and parts of the previous ads all fell around them like a building had just been bombed or something. It was awesome.

Also, NZ beer ads are great. Australian ones too.

Okay, back to the original topic. The Go Compare ads are the worst smurfing things to ever have been put onto a television screen. I can't stand them at all. They're just awful. Danielle hates them even more than I do, though. She also can't stand the Isa Isa one Iceglow linked to, either. Other bad ads though? Hmm. I think it's just those ads that really annoy me. I don't get annoyed by ads for perfume, but I do find them completely and utterly stupid for the most part.

EDIT: There was once a car ad that was all about the car shaking it's arse. And it had the "I see you baby, shaking that ass" song going on. Neither of which I minded. But what I did mind is the number of human arses that filled up the ad. That annoyed me a lot.

I also agree that popup ads and scroll-over ads are horrible. When I say 'scroll-over' ads I mean ads that become larger if your mouse happens to go near them, or alternatively ones that make sounds when your mouse goes over them.

After reading the above post, I have to agree that NZ has pretty sweet ads.

Our (collectively) beer ads are also amazing. It's a big ad, very big ad. Look it up and enjoy.

This. But especially pop-up ads and Web ads that play sound.

This is easy. Worst ever is that Halifax ad with the fake radio show & that TART sings ISA ISA BABY. Fucking Bitch, STFU. Most annoying thing I've ever seen on British TV, and as you can imagine she's up against some stiff opposition.

Ok, that one's hilarious. But all other ads suck.
