    A continuation of the last thread which reached 10,000 posts.
    10,000+ posts, well done everyone. It's been fun. One of my gear grinders at the moment is the new KBC ad, two complete wallys standing at the door of their car in the driveway espousing the benefits of KBC and how it, a bank!, will change your life and all your problems will be solved. Their voices, that script, equally stomach churning and head melting.

    Agree, all bank ads are stupid.

    The ad for Always Pants Discreet with the woman with the fluffy hair telling the camera that nobody will know she's wearing them except her.
    She irritates me for some reason.

    The Fixodent ad with the woman wobbling away on a CGI pair of dentures.

    Is that the one where the boiler grows legs and runs away?

    I see that Chicago Town Pizza ad (the Glee-type one set in the storm drain) is back. Jesus wept. .

    Yes, its a major feckin head wrecker. I assume it has returned because you can now win a pair of "Slice Shades", Jaysus wept a second time.

    The series of Renault Kadjar ads I find are very annoying. It started with the one where the dust comes into the cinema and then all the people run out through the "screen" to get to the car. WTF? I don't get it. Then there are another few featuring extreme sports, with the same annoying song, where the car is driving over terrain it would never be able to get in to or driving in a river as its being used for some sort of selfie camera nonsense. If you don't have this car you obviously cant do extreme sports or if you do then you will look like a twat unless you are in this yoke!

    It reminds me of this famous ad!

    The Aldi ad with the young fella spouting ****e and then he meets big Paulie.What a bollox of an ad


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,827 ✭✭✭madmaggie


    The Energia ad, especially on radio. At first I thought it was President Higgins doing the voice-over.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,518 ✭✭✭johnire


    I agree- I just heard it about 2 minutes ago and you are so right!!!!

    Mentioned at the end of the old thread but that new debt help service advert with the woman "drowning in debt" seems WAY over the top and ironically, can't have been cheap to make either.

    That McCain's ad has the slogan "Now you're talking" I can imagine someone in Boards HQ rubbing their hands together and saying "Hello lawsuit"


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,827 ✭✭✭madmaggie


    Re the Energia ad, could it be Francis Brennan gone hyper?


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,584 ✭✭✭ligerdub


    The "we're not great..............we're total heroes" ad, Hewlett Packard I think. Gimpy crap from techies who think they are rock stars.

    "I asked two girls to me debs"
    "I switched guys at mine, twice"
    "I brought me mammy!"

    NO ONE ever did that! They went alone or didn't go!

    All those radio ads just before the hour that go "It's almost two o'clock, time to ... go and get your tyres rebalanced / get hair implants / invade the middle east / do something else that has no relationship whatsoever to the current time"

    Probably the worst of those ads, though, is the Noyeks Newmans ad on Radio Nova.

    Not only does it begin "It's almost X o'clock, time to...", but it plays just before EVERY hour - and, of course, it's got THAT jingle. I won't sing it; you all know how it goes. ;)

    I miss that DID electrical ad with the singing dishwasher.......it was so bad it was good.

    DOH! , my bad, it was an AIG Insurance Ad, not KBC, sorry KBC!

    The new Opel ad. The glare from Jurgen Klopps teeth could light up a small town.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,522 ✭✭✭Thundercats Ho


    Oh god, I hate those Sh1tebags in the Chicago town pizza ad.


  • Banned (with Prison Access) Posts: 2,960 ✭✭✭Dr Crayfish


    On the Irish channels anyway, it just seems to be either that God awful ad where some prick buys an island with lottery winnings, or else teenagers being rejected by girls in McDonald's ads. I wish you could install adblockers on televisions. My mother mutes the ads every time they come on, to enjoy the silence.


  • Posts: 0 ✭✭✭ Billy Bewildered Pacemaker


    That euromillions ad, with the island bought by this guy. Feck off.

    To be fair the McDonald's ads are class "gonna have a good day, and all my friends...." etc. Genius.:D

    Ah FFS Vodafone have gone full circle back to the first pig ad!

    Ah no! They're funny! Also the guy is the spit of a friend of mine, so maybe that's why I find it so funny.
