    Default Adverts, funny, annoying, etc.

    Just a thread for taking shots at adverts, funny, annoying, daft, enjoyable, etc.

    To start.
    The new Radox shower soap, the one with "Bathroom full of lady stuff? You need Radox showergel for men with New Awesome Hook" is an exceptional example of Japanese advertising.
    Funny in a 'freaked out' manner.


    Brennan's Bread adverts on radio. Are Dubliners as dim/daft as one of the characters portrays?

    Just saw the radox ad, that is mental.

    An annoying ad would be that Fig Roll ad with the 'taste buds' , the person who thought that up should be birched.

    Try the Revlon mascara ad, filmed with extensions and post production work, the 90+% of women said, blah, blah bit they only asked 53, some representative cross section!

    Hate ads generally.

    But I loved the Joe McKinney Guinness ad, and the Lotto ads of about 5 or 6 years ago (e.g. the farmer in the Lamborghini)

    Worst ads:
    - Anything with slo-mo effects
    - Anything with twitty, ingratiating AA Roadwatch accents

    Yes that annoying FIG ROLLS AD, bud. Piick me.... I just keeping wishing that would flow away into the stomach and let the Hydrochloric Acid in there perform their justice.

    Anyone see that Wimax mobile ad, with the baldy gimp singing on a stool with a guitar and the lyrics being highlighted, just as you manage to shut down the neural pathways to your ear by extreme will power.

    Alan Hughes in a former life in the 80s - rather relevant again seeing as plenty folk have to shag off (if lucky to be in a position to do so for employment) and might come back for the aul Christmas hols. Full circle for the Irish 20+ years on ...

    That awful advert that shows them grieving and distraught at the loss of a burnt loaf. the whole thing especially where they lay a white sheet over it is sickeningly distasteful, it makes me so angry that those who have suffered loss, especially at birth as this represents should be treated as advertising fodder. I find hard to believe that warburtons think this will sell bread or that it is worth the pain caused if it does.
