    Agreed, but unfortunately for me when they first started showing it they wouldn't stop showing it so now it's beyond stale.

    Okay, I hate the new McDonalds ones.

    "Oh, I slacked off flying you across countries and doing my job to get a double cheeseburger!"

    "....hmm, okay!"

    This just came up on youtube. I have never seen anything like it. The advert suddenly changes it's mind (from a non existent product) and is so firm about it.

    Behold, absolute confirmation for anyone that wasn't sure: Gangnam Style is now, officially, a dead meme.

    That advert actually took me a minute to work out why it was advertising electronic cigarettes. Then I remembered showing cigarettes in adverts in the UK is banned. xD

    That is a pretty terrible advert, to be fair. Not the worst, but getting there. This really leaves me in no doubt as to why I watch hardly any TV.

    I quite like the Butlins advert - the animation style is nice.
    My most hated advert, however... hmm. Any of the "if you've had a loan/accident in the last three years, you could be owed thousands in compensation!" ones. Plus whatever's playing in front of the vids on Youtube and TGWTG just now. There was one in particular a couple of days ago that irritated me - a video game promotion I think it was, with some guy saying in this low creepy voice, "My sword can do many things... it can protect the innocent..." Never found out what else the sword could do as that's when the "Skip Ad" button came up, but much "do not want" ensued even in those five seconds. pony_27.png
