I don't, I think the football manager is creepy.

The other Roundtree Randoms adverts are generally annoying.

As someone else mentioned, the salmon fish finger advert is brilliant. I love the girl's voice and the giggle.

I hate the Dell Lollipop Lollipop advert.

I hate that song anyway, but I also hate the sickly sweetness of the idea of laptops being made in a Wonka-esque factory.

Re: What are your best and worse TV ads?

The advert that has raised a smile in our household is the latest "Go Compare" advert featuring an over the top Italian Tenor, all being performed to the famous WW1 ditty "Over there"...priceless.

Re: What are your best and worse TV ads?

One of my favourite ads of all time. Mel Sykes in the Boddington's ad.. Apart from the fact she looks extremely sexy (as she still does), her accent fits perfectly.

Re: What are your best and worse TV ads?

Not so much a bad or good ad, but I was just wondering why churchil was advertising 'admiral' on this ad.

Listen to his 'sneeze' at the start

I hate any and all Christmas TV adverts especially if not in the month of December.

Re: What are your best and worse TV ads?

Hate: current head and shoulders ad.

Everyone likes hair that's up to 100% flake free. Really?????? I've never seen hair that's not up to 100% flake free. In fact: I'd be extremely surprised if they could produce a sample of hair that is not up to 100% flake free. bloody morons Grow a brain...
