Re: What are your best and worse TV ads?

Is anyone else really enchanted with the Italian girl in the pasta advert - the one where Tim Lovejoy cons her into cooking dinner for their date together?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z2bGsl-xIcU

I could listen to her speak Italian all day.

I can't stand that Plusnet radio ad where that idiot with the nasal voice tells us that they "can't be beat" - someone ought to tell him the correct word would be "beaten".

Re: What are your best and worse TV ads?

OK I'm guessing 'Beat' is what Yorkshire folk say instead of 'beaten'? Fine, if the ads were staying within Yorkshire. As it's going to the rest of the UK they'd be better off using words and expressions the rest of us know.

Re: What are your best and worse TV ads?

That ad irritates me, as it implies that Yorkshiremen are inherently more trustworthy than anyone else. I've met a few, and you get the same mix of trustworthy and untrustworthy as anywhere else.

Re: What are your best and worse TV ads?

Can't stand that First Direct Ad. Starts off in a classroom and kids are being noisy and that girl (Michelle Green) making that awful noise and then the teacher walks in and says "Michelle Green, you and I are going be having a long conversation."

Can't abide it at all, to the point that I just switch channels quickly when it comes on.

Re: What are your best and worse TV ads?

I only ever watch TV when I visit my mum's on a friday, I honestly don't know how her, or others, can stand the constant annoying adverts during the breaks

Not only that, but the adverts which seem to have been going for YEARS (Direct line, andrex etc spring to mind)

I'm glad I don't watch TV :P

Re: What are your best and worse TV ads?

Sad I know but I do like the CBeebies advert with the small girl mixing cake batter. It never fails to make me smile when she adds the currants.

Re: What are your best and worse TV ads?

I'm not sure if i should hate the latest Very.co.uk advert or love it. They're using one of my favourite songs (and a pretty obscure song too); "Bert's Apple Crumble" by the 60's mod band The Quik. I'm not really liking the song being used in such a way but it's a truly a piece of instrumental genius, so more opportunity to hear it is great.

"Yeah, real fish outta water me, we're all like that here"

Ugh. Puts you right off First Direct

Sorry Punky, the words Tim and Lovejoy automatically put me off anything.

Re: What are your best and worse TV ads?

Best advert ever for me is the "Night driving" one for VW Golf http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5U9I7QrpSkk
Although the Sony Bravia ones we're great,
Bouncing balls, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-zOrV...eature=related
Paint, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GURvHJNmGrc
Clay http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CLUAbkRUvVQ
foam http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZBXkr...eature=related
and Domino's http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fcnza...eature=related

Worst one is a current one with Babies randomly laughing, the sound makes me cringe, don't get me wrong i don't mind kids but i can't stand the sound of them laughing on that advert,http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PIlJw5h_eNc
