    Current Most Annoying Adverts 5th Oct 17 at 6:13 PM
    Yes I know we have probably visited this topic before, but new monstrosities are out there!

    What are the adverts on TV at the moment that you dislike most?

    For me the bizarre Arnold Schwarzenegger head on caterpillar tracks PPI thing and the Skeletor Moneysupermarket one (am I allowed to say that?) are currently annoying.

    But I also include anything that "sponsors" a program especially Boots and Dr Oetker as you just get so sick of the sight of them.

    What is not appealing to you?

    Defintiely, Harvey Keitel must have been desperate to agree to do that.

    At least he doesn't have to do too much, I suppose, walk a little bit and recite some lines.

    Unlike the Marmite gene project ad which is completely over the top and a load of !!!!!!!!.
    Always ask yourself one question: What would Gibbs do?

    The over 50s funeral plans. Especially the one showing two middle aged couples happily spending a LOT of money in a garden centre while complaining that they would never able to afford their own funeral expenses.

    I avoid adverts as much as I can but the Andrex advert with the kids saying 'clean as a squid' etc.

    Why anyone would think that kids talking rubbish (was going to say sh*te) is a good idea, funny or a selling point is beyond me.

    BG with the penguin.
    How do they expect to take an animal that lives on the coldest continent on the planet and dress it up in a scarf and coat to convince the bill paying public that they are best for supply and heating?
