    Just a bit of fun…. Was wondering if there is something you have heard or seen in an advert that just made you think WTF? Or made you think what a stupid thing to say!

    For me it has to be…..

    “Tony! How are things?

    Let’s have an impossibly stilted exchange about what’s happened in the three years since we did our generic ‘work’ at ‘The Site’.

    I’ve being doing ‘a course’ and got ‘my certificate’; yes, earning AND learning.

    Look at my smug van and tidy beard. Hark as I drop not a single aitch whilst whining my way through a script that makes Elton Johns hair look natural.

    I’m better than you now Tony; you’re ****, and I’m ace.

    Ha ha! Your life is ashes, YOUR LIFE IS ASHES…”

    Nah, I just spend far too much of my life watching crap adverts and commenting on them

    I didn't realise I was going to have copyright lawyers on my case for copying and pasting though :woo:

    "Must be three YEARS since we worked on the site!" - Gah, it makes me want to kill again. I don't think the Skills centre even exosts anymore after that travesty of an advert.

    Oh yeah, also the Fosters advert.

    Get some Australian into you.

    Then at the end it says,

    Brewed in the EU

    I agree with you 100% this ad is annoying, they obviosly made it then the ASA told them they have to add "does not provide professional results" to the end and they thought knowone would notice!

    It gets right on my nervs though how they drag the advert out for so long then at the end say "does not provide professional results" - well WTF? is that not what the whole product consept and advert is based on :confused:

    Yes, this makes me cross too.

    Perfume ads really annoy me as well. They're so pretensious. I want to shout "WHAT DOES IT ******* SMELL LIKE!" at the screen everytime they come on.

    As for the most stupid thing I've seen in an advert, it has to be the Oasis drink ad "rubberduckzilla" what the..? It's funny but it is utterly stupid.

    I agree, have you seen the activia advert on ITV 3? its shown about 300 times a day where she goes "note to self; must take advice from decidedly more confident friend and try activia" it really is cringeworthy if not for trying to imply this is how normal people act then for the clear epic failed rip off of Bridget Jone's Diary.

    I fell like shouting at the telly "Note To self; stop making notes to self in 3rd person before i'm locked up!"
