    There's a version of the TUI ad where the - thud, thud - comes in a beat earlier, messes with my head! 🙉

    It is what it's.

    The Tesco ad with the child who couldn't read and his mother taught him how to read using recipes is back again! Different people this time. It was on the UK version of Channel 4. I hope it doesn't pop up in Ireland!

    The (Samsung?) radio ad where some pillock keeps saying “awesome” in an very extended and annoying fashion. Jesus it boils my piss.

    Lidl just seem to be topping it for annoying ads. The one with the kid talking to the baby about the nappies is bloody awful

    What the hell has getting pregnant got to do with B&Q?

    Fed up of these companies trying to pull on the heartstrings.

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,932 ✭✭✭ oneweb

    Nationwide UK with couples babbling on about something but it's really one talking over the other, the latter barely just getting a ye.. in edgeways.

    It is what it's.

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,932 ✭✭✭ oneweb

    Everyone waits till they get pregnant to start doing their place up. Duh 😜

    It is what it's.

    Is that woman in the new Sky/Netflix ad the same large breasted woman from the Claire Byrne radio ad?

    You can go anywhere in a Skoda but sure as f***ing hell ,you won’t be seeing shooting stars with the cloud cover in Ireland!!!!

    Heard this horror on the car radio, and was so annoyed by it, I dived at the radio to mute the pillock, nearly running in to the car ahead of me.😲

    Only heard it once, and that was more than enough. Nauseating.

    Has Michael o Muiraheartaigh's sandwich add been consigned to the archives?

  • Registered Users Posts: 7,347 ✭✭✭ Pussyhands

    I'm at a loss to know why that damn Malteasers ad is still on. The thing is they used to have some decent ones with picking up a malteaser on the pregnant womans belly with a straw or something like that. But this stupid one has been on for at least a decade. I'm pretty sure it's been on since at least London 2012.

    I switch off to do something else during tv ads, or fast forward if replaying, but am more exposed to radio ads. The most offensive to my ears is the tuneless “singing” in the It’s a doddle radio ad. That man should be executed and she should be anaesthetised. I gather it’s deliberately irritating simply to gather attention.

    Someone replied and said they think it's 10 years. lol

    But apparantly it is 2016! Unbelievable.

  • Registered Users Posts: 3,140 ✭✭✭ trashcan

    I find the most annoying ads the ones with added singing, particularly the “quirky” female singing ones. The latest offender is the one singing about “ this is our year, it took a long time to come “. Couldn’t tell you what it’s advertising, which means it’s not even doing its basic job.

    I wonder is part of the problem that there's really not that many industries that can afford TV advertising these days. It seems to be mostly;

    • Car companies
    • Mobile phone / broadband / TV companies
    • Big name food and toiletries companies

    There's just not as many advertisers as there used to be, so we're getting more repetition with the remaining fews.

    Charities, can well afford them, including one particularly infamous Irish one...

    Supermarket chains.


    The 'Loddo'

    The GAA (their sponsors mainly)

    The Hunky Dory ad with the screaming gimp. Who the **** wants to listen to that relaxing in front of the TV?

  • Registered Users Posts: 3,349 ✭✭✭ Hangdogroad

    That one was uploaded to YouTube in 2010, dont think thats still running though.

  • Registered Users Posts: 429 ✭✭ RoTelly

    Yeah, I was just showing the difference in how good those characters where, the nurses came along with a few others included a 2 deaf teachers.

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,932 ✭✭✭ oneweb

    "Give a doubt".

    Fk saaaaaake, marketing teams who come up with meaningless three-word combos need to be relieved of employment.

    It is what it's.

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,932 ✭✭✭ oneweb

    Katy Perry's new Just-Eat ad. I generally like her bop, but 5 seconds in, this ad annoyed me. And it went on and on and on. Reckon she's wrecked her IE/UK career.

    It is what it's.

  • Registered Users Posts: 5,754 ✭✭✭ Archeron

    Just saw an all new shiny ad and I can't work out if it's advertising star wars, Volkswagen, Disney or sky.

    When marketing departments collide.

  • Registered Users Posts: 71,289 ✭✭✭✭ Atlantic Dawn

    The constant Lotto ads making it seem whiter than snow to play, I guess they know their time is up and all gambling ads will be banned on tv in the near future.

    Darren Conway is to Dubs what Rory's Stories is to culchies.

    I can't stand him. The most unfunny fcuker going. "I'm noh!" or the face he pulls at the end of the Hunky Dory ad, so cringy.
