SafeStyle UK (think it's them), old and recent. Someone must think they are funny.
 
Also, any advert (usually local radio in truth) where a voice-over actor tries to imitate some character, or an American.

Notice the size of the people's living rooms on the sofa ads? Have a look next time, they all live in mansions.

I really hate that Budweiser ad with the guy looking for the GRRRREEEEEAAAARRHHH pub for some reason.

A friend of mine stopped drinking Heineken, his drink of choice for years, solely based on the Memory Hotel ads. How rubbish are they? :lol:

It's only fear under another name
And the corporate snakes coming in to feed
On that pathetic fact known as human greed
Skin and bone being raked over those hot coals

Picture loans is the ultimate s*** ad, my blood is boiling just thinking about it!! >:(

"Oh, well they better not cancel football!"

Oh, well you best shut your f***ing face you f***ing c***!! (I'm sure you'll agree Cat, that in this case that is the only appropriate word) Otherwise I'm going to find out where you live and make a nice pate by stamping on your head until it turns to mush, I don't care if you're only an actor reading lines, the Geneva Convention states that "I was only following orders" is not a valid excuse for this kind of thing, you deserve everything that's coming your way you sickening f***!!

That and any cosmetics ad that mentions "science", they deserve to die also.

That picture loans one I find real patronising for some reason, it makes it worse when the actual advert claims they don't patronise you!

That'll be because it is utterly patronising, maybe?

I like the way the chap turns to his missus and goes, 'How much do we want to loan again? Oh, that's right, fifteen thousand pounds.'

adverts are such a waste of time in general. ive probably seen thousands and thousands of adverts in my time and i cant remember ever thinking "oh, that looks good, i'll just run out and buy one!!11!" if they must be on, at least put them on AFTER the thing im watching, not during. complete s***.

and in the context of the thread, everyone of them. ban them all.

thats what you think
Bullshitters misrepresent themselves to their audience not as liars do, that is, by deliberately making false claims about what is true. In fact, bullshit need not be untrue at all.

Rather, bullshitters seek to convey a certain impression of themselves without being concerned about whether anything at all is true. They quietly change the rules governing their end of the conversation so that claims about truth and falsity are irrelevant.

Whether it's God or the bomb
It's just the same
It's only fear under another name
And the corporate snakes coming in to feed
On that pathetic fact known as human greed
Skin and bone being raked over those hot coals
This dump never seems to give time for human soul

Actually there's a right s*** Subway (sandwich shop) advert on at the moment with giant walking red onions trying to mug a Subway customer down a back alleyway. Offensively awful.
