    Someone mentioned the Picture Loans adverts on another thread. I hate them!!!

    Theyre almost as bad as that obnoxious child who sits on the loo shouting 'Its all gone, its all gone' about the air freshner. :mad:

    What other ads have people reaching for the off button :)

    Hi Starlight

    The recent Orange network advert, with those two silly wind up thingy's walking along the road, with the really creepy version of "Let me call you Sweetheart", I absolutely hate it

    I agree with you about the loan ones, I am not normally a violent person, but don't you just want to smack that fella in the face who is being filmed? - what a nurd!

    my neice loves that "gorgeous" ad and sings it all the time. nowt wrong with self confidence i guess lol.

    i really hate those personal injury ads. all of them. the ones where the blokey is rigged up to lie detector and the ones where the bloke falls off laddar/gets crushed by forklift/lady injuring her knee at office!

    the other rubbish ones as well are the ones that last for AGES flogging CD sets that u can only buy direct. "oooo yeah i could really do with a 12 pack of all my favourite morris dancers classics. Quick! pass me the phone...theres only 12 minutes left of the ad and i might miss the number if i dont call RIGHT NOW!!!" :sigh:

    I hate all the loan adverts, particularly the Picture one. They want to borrow £25,000 but will actually have to pay back about £42,000 so it'll cost them £17,000! How crazy is that!

    It's a pity that money could not be spent publicising all the real debt support agencies (like Citizens Advice) who could help people manage their finances without taking out another loan. It's all free advice and support.

    But no, CA is a charity and can't afford to advertise.

    I also hate all adverts publicising the cr*p junk foods we should feed our kids. My daughter used to say "Aw Mum, why can't I have that in MY lunchbox?" "So and so does". "Because it's full of salt, fat and sugar darling and has no actual vitamins at all". I reply.

    I work in a school and the rubbish kids bring for playtime and for lunch is shocking. They're all heart attacks in the making!

    I hate advertisements about sofas. 'Nuff said.

    I could go on, but I need the loo!

    Same here! They look amazing.. :mad: :sigh: Haha. Nevermind, i'm sure anyone who tries them will be able to tell us how DISGUSTING they REALLY are! Lol.

    I can't think of any adverts i really dislike but i don't watch much television anyway. I do however, LOVE the renult car ads...the ones with that French girl and English bloke...i LOVE the bloke! And my flatmate loves the girl so when it coems on we both get really excited! Haha, what lives we lead!?
