Same with the tesco ad, it's triggered every anti vaxxer out there and sent them into meltdown 🤣
The Avonmore idents with the weather forecast. Brilliant stuff
"How's dat for ya?" Wind blows hair...soooo funny
Girl gets home: "That's some hairdo"... side splitting stuff!
As my boycott of all Avonmore products approaches it's 5th year.
Overplayed. Every Xmas.
Wonder have they paid royalties for it?
Every single perfume ad ever made...
Nice eye candy in fairness 😎😎
They should play FTONY in a loop as part of any sentence that may or may not be handed down.
I see that little bollix Kevin the Carrot 🥕 is back. Can someone leave him out for Rudolph to munch this year, please.
More than likely. Considering it's being played in the UK and Ireland (and possibly further) than they're getting some serious money for it.
Coupled with 'Baby it's cold outside'... the non-woke version. (John LEgend wrote a 'woke' version, it's more irritating than his wife).
That Laya “buh-bum” ad with the wan banging her chest (coz we don’t know what a heartbeat is) and talking in an American accent about being “eel” makes me reach for the remote every time (so that’s every ad break🤨😡)
I like Kevin the Carrot the little raggamuffin - you just never know what he'll get up to next.
There's an ad on the whole time on RTE that is a trailer of some home-grown comedy starring some gombeen playing different characters.
And it genuinely looks like one of the worst shows ever, and in know way wants me to tune in.
RTE get flak for not producing enough home-grown comedies, but when thay gers commissioned, I'd be happy for them NOT to be wasting more money doing so.
RTE trying to find the next Andy Quirke-he of 'Damo and IVor' fame. I notice a lot of these people are Upper class, wealthy folks making fun of the lower classes. (Similar to Quirke and his birthday party where it was 'themed' about skangers, aka the poor gambling addicts who fund his daddy's business, and fund his lifestyle. )
That Woodies Christmas ad is back where the young lad is gagging for a ride off Mrs Higgins :)
That hideous African witch doctor woman is an abomination 😫
It's been well documented how hated/stupid that dominos yeodelling ad is.........well, they got a new one with a choir yeodelling ordering pizza........jeez, as in WHY????
Shhh! You can't say that about the 'new Irish'!
All these multi racial families in the ads - makes you feel warm and fuzzy inside.
Oddly enough, you rarely see Polish people represented in ads, or in anything in Irish media, despite being probably the largest ethnic group after Irish people here.
Bailey's ad. "Dey call me da hot chocolate guru"
Fuck away off you just ruined a perfectly nice hot chocolate with that muck.
I actually like that ad. It's certainly the best of the ads so far this year.
True indeed. And a damn shame too, because Poland's finest export are the ladies. Put one of them in an advert, and you could sell funeral services and make it sound pleasant.
In the admakers rush to jump on the pc bandwagon, you could be forgiven for believing we have a 50:50 white Irish/POC mix.
There is an upside to these ads, knowing just how head wrecking they are for the lads who think woke is an insult.
Thanks for outing yourself as someone who is against equality.
If it's a non-speaking part then any of the "people of no colour" could be Polish to be fair.
Two friends of mine, Michael from Galway and Michel from Poland went on a roadtrip to Cork a few years ago. Along the way the met two girls with broad Cork accents and ended up spending the rest of the trip with them. Eventually, it was time to go home and they decided to swap email addresses. Girl A's email address was GirlA.<Polish name> at gmail and GirlB's email address was GirlB.<Polish name> at gmail.
Michel: Thats a Polish name!
Girl A: Dats right by!
Michael: Why have you both got Polish surnames?
Girl B: Er, because we're Polish like?
It never occurred to the two lads the girls were anything other than Corkonians.
My point is, there could well be Poles in speaking parts in an ad, you just don't know, because they don't sound Polish. I've one friend who learnt English through the BBC World Service and speaks like she is on the BBC.
Not as uneasy as the permanent TSB one. The loan applicant and the guy from the bank have an uncomfortably close relationship - if I were yer wans partner I'd be suspicious...
I suspect you wouldn't know equality if you tripped over it. Are you suggesting there should be some kind of quota for ethnic appearances in TV ads?
There seems to be one already!
