    Och, that Pepsi Max noo compromyyze ad is back, in festive format 😩🙉

    It is what it's.

    Aldi have been spamming "ebanana scrooge" on social media the last day or so. I suspect we'll be seeing a lot of mentions about an annoying christmas ad involving a grumpy banana then.

    Paul McGrath seems to be on every ad break again.

    For curry sauce.

    The all new Suzuki VitORRRA, available at 2.1% AP ORRRR.

    I'm guessing that ad got the go ahead from Japanese execs who don't know what Irish people actually sound like.

    It's capitalism. Buy our Chinese-made sh1t quick before it runs off the shelves.

    That's the real message of Christmas.

    There's a new ad on UK TV (Channel 4 just now) - "Switch to reusables" (Chilly's)... where everyone handles all the cups, bottles, bowls containers amongst themselves and shop staff. Just like the last two years of trying our damndest to sanitise, not touch surfaces and keep distances have been completely pointless 🤦🏻‍♂️

    It is what it's.

    Your Chinese made sh1t might not be quite as available soon enough the way things are going.

    I manage to switch off ads totally these times… or so I imagine. The subliminalist experts would definitely argue otherwise cos I will probably find myself buying g something I heard about in the background when I wasn’t paying any attention at all. To me the TV is merely a bit of life on my living room, I pay minimal heed to it whilst I communicate elsewhere.

    After the yodeling crap and the ooOOOOoooooOOoo atrocity, Celebrations are after launching their christmas advert with everyone saying whoop... 😒

    It's already terrible and it has just started. I think my TV will end up with a phone through it before December.

    I couldn't give less of a shyte as I wont be buying any.

    Youtube constant ads for Kildare Village the last 2 weeks. If I want to buy cheap branded crap i,ll just buy it online thanks

  • Registered Users Posts: 993 ✭✭✭ MrCostington

    Sure I've seen a few in October (I use a streaming service so get UK ads) ...

    Anyway, I see i've been beaten to it, but I nominate ANY and ALL xmas ads, they ever were, and ever will be!

    The Christmas ads started full on during the Late Late Show last night, trading on Tubridy’s well-honed practice of making himself a key Christmas figure in Ireland - the “Toy Man”.

    Thought it was one of those beardy lads from Kin giving that girl a turntable in the Three ad.

    Christmas Ads are only on for a couple of months and then are off until the next year so never really too mad with any of them. Its Christmas they make me smile

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,004 ✭✭✭ Markus Antonius

    The Spar christmas ad has to be the most depressing ad on the television and they've shown it every single year from Nov -Jan for the last 5+ years.

  • Registered Users Posts: 326 ✭✭ Auld Jim Halpin

    8 weeks (plus) of Christmas ads every year, it's such a torture, I tend to stay away from companies who fry my brain with too many ads or terrible ads.

    Some of this years dreadfulness, Eir, the family stopping on the wrong side of the road, in a dangerous position to get the family selfie with a fuppin Christmas tree, such horse manure

    That 3 years old Dunnes Ad with the kids trying to find as many lights as possible, what happened to saving electricity and the planet eh Dunnes Stores?

    Aldi Christmas Carol rubbish, far too long

  • Registered Users Posts: 18,047 ✭✭✭✭ Muahahaha

    A good trick I use is to mute the tv when an ad break starts and then get Alexa to play a song on Spotify that I know is approx 3 minutes long, when the song is over I unmute the tv. Works a treat

    Lidl radio add voiceover woman is really pissing me off. She seems to be on on lots of other radio adds but too she needs to fade into the background, she sounds like fingernails scraping on a blackboard with her random high pitched syllables.

  • Registered Users Posts: 523 ✭✭✭ DarkJager21

    There's a car advert of some sort that has been annoying the **** out of me for months now. Some guy is doing a "Choose Life" style speech over images of the car, just rambling a load of shite before he gets abruptly cut off by the announcer, who TALKS OVER HIM while he is still ranting in the background. It's so amateur, jarring and badly done I still can't tell you what brand of car it's even advertising.

    Any Xmas ad with a poem struggling to rhyme in the style of The Night Before Xmas.
