Adverts I do not Like

  ulrich 17:20 15 Oct 2006

I do not like adverts at the best of times, but one or two get on my nerves, for instance TOM TOM, BT with the family and the father visits.
What are your thoughts?

Singing ones - ie. the halifax, sheila's wheels and the AA.

I like the muller adverts though as I like that song.

Natwest one, I don't believe a word of it, all the things they plug are the failings that caused me to leave them

Not so much the adverts but I deplore any company which advertises online Poker Rooms.
It's should be ethical trading before raw profits.

Could be compared to pushing anti-family substances .

The advert where a wife videos her idiot husband borrowing £25000 and only having to pay back £40000. It might be the same family and the wife says you are not going to buy a snooker table.

No not the same family...the first is "Picture" loans, the second is Chelsea re-mortgages.

I really do need to get out more!

I have to switch the tv over when that advert for road saftey comes on,its the motorbike driver having his breakfast,and seeing the same things on his way to work every day,then he hits a wall ! my favourite are the Marks @ Spencer food adverts,with the Santana music in the background.

i.e. the old to me this is just an insult ot the human race and i would never visit said site out of spite and before anyone jumps in i don't don't care if i have to pay more for my insurance it is a matter of principal.
