    Oh god the ING one, that assumes men just walk around waiting for a woman to cost them a fortune in some way or another. Can't bear it.

    i hate them all, especially the idiots on confused .com, were the actors, acting not acting but actually acting degrading them selves as brainless morons.

    i hate everything about the halifax, at least they gt rid of that camp Chinese boy singing!

    I voted Halifax. They are just cheap rubbish nonsense.

    What about all the "sell your gold" ads though?

    It has to be F GoCompare just thinking about that ad is making the jingle go round and round my head, I even wake up with it going round and round.

    I HATE IT :mad:

    If I am watching telling and it comes on I change the channel but I've heard the ad far to many times and it just gets stuck!

    I can't avoid it even at work as the radio is on 24/7 and when I have my break it's on the telly! noooooooooooooooooooo

    Also we buy any car is staring to annoy me as well.
    Don't forget you can donate 24 Felix tokens to help feed a cats protection cat/kitten that's in care
    their are loads of cats/kittens awaiting there forever home
    don't forget the the oldies who are just as much fun

    Dropping a brand going great :D thanks Martin and team

    I find the Natwest adverts really cringworthy and the new Halifax ones pretending to be a radio station:eek:

    I hate the Ocean Finance Adverts!!!!

    When my missus car insurance was up for renewal (a while back) she tried the new Confused website that offered all these new features to make choosing easier. It didn't work!!! Great news really as she went to a few better sites and got it through them, so no referral fees to them!!!! haha!!
    They obviously have picked a family in their recent adverts that couldn't care less about saving money and have probably never heard of MSE. On average I only save about £20 when switching, cos I'm already switched on!

    I was torn between the meerkat and the opera singer. I eventually voted for the meerkat because he will fit in my blender much more easily

    The halifax advert is also worthy of a mention as whenever its on I just want to scream at the daft twonk with a bin on his head that he isn't actually calling from a space station, he just has a bin on his head

    Has to be Go compare.
    I guess the most annoying for us is probably the most successful campaign for them-the awful gingle and the opera singer but for them it means its talked about probably at work etc and discussed in forums like this!!
    Phycological torture for us but coffers in the bank for them no doubt!!:T
