The music for the linked ad is exceptionally good. Where do they find these obscure singles?

Mrs G would agree with you. She's disgusted by what she feels is the way he has really misled his (soon to be ex??) wife.

I don’t know how they would work it. Similar to how All4+ works it, I presume.

Generally we record channels with ads, but sometimes there is no choice.

Re: Adverts that make you change channel or hit mute

I was that annoyed by the Deliveroo one with the northern accent woman handing out food from a range of take aways that I complained to OFCOM that it wasn't representative of a delivery.

They upheld it too.

Anything with Meerkats.
