    Hi!
    Does anyone know where I could download the new co-op advert (the one with the animated sheep that sing about 'less additives' and the fat pig family)? I just think it's hilarious and would like to keep a copy.

    Thanks

    (ps - on the subject of adverts: does anyone think that the advert for the Gillette razor with David Beckham, where it goes on rather over-dramatically ('you win, they go home...'), is remotely likely to attract them to the product? Just interested, as I find it really cringe-making.)

    very cringe making especially as he missed the bloody penalty and therefore didn't win and ended up going home

    It's cringey, but enough people aspire to it for it to work..

    as for the Co-op ad, try their site, if not, try a p2p programme, if you use them.

    Lol. Sorry. I just adore random singing things (think Finding Nemo: 'We did it, we did it, oh yeah, yeah, yeah', Beauty and the Beast: 'Be our... guest, be our guest, put our service to the test' - you get the picture.. ooh! and the Aristocats: 'Every truly cultured music student knows: you must learn your scales and your arpeggios') Even those Halifax ads were pretty cool.

    I love the co-op adverts. The sheep one is especially cool.

    "Gunna give you less aditives, less aditives, ooooh aditives, baby less aditives!"

    Classic!

    Talking about adverts, does anybody else here feel like throwing a chair at the telly when that "I'm not your sister" advert comes on. It makes me convulse with rage due to it's utter *****iness. Argh, annoying advert!

    YES!!!! I HATE MICHAEL WINNER!! 'calm down dear, its just a commercial...'

    Also the BT ads annoy me... 'if you call us and the person you speak to cant help you they will find someone who can'... well, thats what Im bloody paying you for isnt it?? Also 'If you have an appointment with an engineer, they will do their best to be on time'... just makes me laugh. They are using the standard things we expect anyway as advertising features.... the cheek!!

    Oh God, yes, that one's awful too.. I mean with all the technology we've got nowadays, surely you can do something better than that. Would *anyone* be persuaded to buy insurance with that ad? Maybe we should have a poll of most annoying ads. The Norwich Union 'Quote me happy' one kinda gets on my nerves too.. Could anyone tell me what the point of that is? Or, actually, has anyone here actually rung them up to be 'quoted happy' as it were? Lol.

    This has to be one of those adverts which leaves me with a totally bemused "why?!" and little else. I really don't understand the whole singing sheep thing atall.
