Re: What are your best and worse TV ads?

Agreed. Great advert.

I also notice that there is also a chance of winning a Weekend Break (The prize consists of a 3 nights self catering (Friday – Monday) cottage accommodation for 2-4 people.)..or a loaf.

Re: What are your best and worse TV ads?

Not quite best or worst, but the new First Choice / Thomson holiday. They are making a big deal about joining together to advise and reassure travellers in this troubled times. They are actually owned by the same company

Made me laff.

Re: What are your best and worse TV ads?

I'm truly starting to go beyond dislike for the Halifax ads...It's becoming an obsessive loathing...

Oh yes coggy, tell me about it...in our house its become a mad rush for the remote when the little guy with glasses comes on and begins singing, if thats the right word, about his talking fish.
Personally I believe people reach this level of loathing for a particular ad purely from the end...les..s times they screen it, the saying in our house is, "I wouldn't use Abbey if they paid me".
