    You mean doddl.

    In fairness the ad is memorable (but I haven't a clue what it's for).

    I hate the woman's voice on that Hyundai ad.

    A lot of ads are awful, but now and again there is an ad that I call a station changer.
    As soon as you hear it start, you change to another channel.

    First one for this year - This ole house.

    For what it's worth, I like the doddl ad. It's very catchy.

    It's so out of touch with where we need to be heading as well - cars should be regarded as a means of transport rather than a 1970s status symbol or plaything.

    I was thinking it was some sort of muscle car or sports car, had a Google, it's little different in appearance to the hoards of identikit gas guzzling SUVs beloved of middle class mummys.

    Hope it doesn't overturn while he's having a "play" with it.

    Rooney, Mooney and Blue Cheese ...

    Nothing about that ad makes any sense. I have no idea who it is for, what kind of business it is, or what they are on about.

    Think it's a rerun of an ad from 2 or 3 years ago.
    Irritating then as now.

    Ridiculous waste of ten seconds on nothing to do with the company at all.

    There is an ad on regular rotation now, can't recall what it's for, but there is a girl who really emphasises the first T in the word "important".
    It's really jarring, and I'm sure she is getting an awful slagging from friends and family about it. :)

    You'll know it when you hear it.

    Euro Cycles ad.

    I'd love to punch the heads off whoever wrote the script and the music for it.

    Same for me with the Ad for Mozart on RTE radio 1.
    We're ALL fans.
    Ugh.

    "I'm just a business person"......and ......"we do it in the toilet".....would suck the will to live from you. Newstalk seem to specialise in blocks of these type of Ads.


  • Administrators, Computer Games Moderators, Entertainment Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators Posts: 54,764 Admin ✭✭✭✭✭ Mr E


    Has anyone heard the new seatbelt ad? Yikes. Worst one I've heard in a while.


  • Registered Users Posts: 14,144 ✭✭✭✭ whisky_galore


    Those stupid Flahavans ones, where the "secret" is drowned out with background noise.
    Come on, it's milling oats, no one cares what way you do it.




  • Ha, brilliant ad

    The craic in the soulless retail park just next to the motorway must be mighty indeed. Forget pubs, get me to the baby bikes and buggies warehouse asap!

    Also hate those ones about "We're for the dreamers, we're for the workers, we're for the creators ".

    Poor Eamonn gets fired for using too much electricity at work. Hopefully the brains behind that terrible Energia ad all got fired.

    Strangely, I thought this was one of the more amusing Ads of recent times - not that there's much competition. However, it sends out a confusing message as it is well known that turning off lights, computers etc. saves energy and shouldn't be ignored. Don't Energia have a similar Ad about an executive who spends his time switching off lights instead of 'growing' his business.

    That lad who gets all excited about playing about in his Suzuki Vitara is in for a rude awakening this week as Aunt Viv is going to be coming over to stay


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 4,415 ✭✭✭ generalgerry


    That Castleknock ad, with the guy who sounds like Mo from the Simpsons, must be the greatest load of waffle I have ever heard.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,947 ✭✭✭ Patrick2010


    That pompous a*sehole auctioneer from Galway is back. And what about that feelgood taxi ad..."you know, you should really mind your own business"


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,767 ✭✭✭ plodder


    I wasn't really listening, but I'm nearly sure I heard an ad for a funeral undertaker, and their slogan at the end was "we know whose funeral it is"

    I'm glad to hear that :eek:

    Just be glad the slogan isn't, "We're coming for you."

    I’m surprised nobody has mentioned the current financial ad’s yet – first there is the one for BDO. I swear on first listening to it they were congratulating themselves on how the BO in BDO typifies what they are and such. Kind of made sense that. Second time around I heard correctly – it was DO. But I can’t help hearing “BO” every time.

    And the price-waterhouse ad – filled with every jaded and clichéd business jargon word from the 1990’s to impress the general public.
