    Who actually watches TV advertisements/commercials?

    I hate them and can't even understand why anyone would watch them! When they come on I just switch channels and watch another program until mine comes back. Maybe once a year I see an advert I actually like and might watch it if I ever see it (like that pepsi one where the guy beats himself up at a job interview).

    Obviously these big companies wouldn't pay so much if it wasn't making a difference so people out there are paying attention to them. But who are these people?

    I watch them sometimes. Although usually I tend to be on my laptop whilst watching TV, so I just pay more attention to my web surfing whilst the ads are on :yep:

    Some ads are good, most are crap :nn:

    I watch them right now as they are someghing of a novelty for me as (having just moved back here) Singaporean adverts are the exact same thing each break - there is actually variety here :eek: But it will wear off in about 2 days...

    Most ads are terribad (especially the sounds and music). Occasionally, there's a rare pearl that comes on. Something which was obviously designed by someone who was able to think outside the box, and from a company that was willing to take a risk (rather than sticking to the old 'tried and test' model which, funnily enough, everyone is sick of).

    I very rarely watch them. I will listen out for any of them I like, but most I am either indifferent about or just dislike. The latest pot noodle advert were they sing is one that really annoys me. :mad:

    The Pepsi advert is awesome, I'll watch that one whenever it comes on but otherwise I just switch over

    I very rarely watch TV on a TV anyway, so when I do, I generally watch them just out of interest.

    I go out of my way to avoid them. This is annoying for people who are too lazy to change them for some reason!..
