What tv adverts do your head in

The Iceland ones - they really do my head in. I am sure I am not the target market but they are painful to watch. Or is that clever marketing.

+ 1

The advert that starts, "It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas."

No idea who it is as I always switch over.

Boots Peter - but not the footwear lol.

Agree though the Iceland ads. To me they've made it far too blatant who their target market are by the use of the main character and her regional accent. Subliminal generalisation imo.

DFS ads do my head in!!

Especially when you know that the 'leading lady' is in fact a druggie 'chav' who has been in and out of the Priory more times than anyone would care to think! Why on earth they haven't terminated her contract is beyond me!

Hell yes!!! I forgot about that one. Totally sick but it happens all the time, suppose that's the message.

What about that one showing the heart being punctured by the ribs in a car accident. Think it's the drink driving campaign/seat belt?

Whats with the blue water with the 'womens' ads. We all know its not blue for christ sake !!!!!! As for riding bikes and playing in tennis. We all know that women get pissed off just at getting up in the morning during that week let alone losing at a game of tennis.

I had no idea about that woman.........what's the story then?

Another set of irking ads is anything about imodium (diarrhoea), bladder weakness, thrush and feeling bloated. Never have suffered with any of those........thankfully. Maybe there's time yet lol.

Has anyone seen that advert with the couple who look about 60 ish and it's about a mans sexual dysfunction. It's fairly grim.

A different Iceland ad has just been on........a bloke doing the voice over methodically and simply advertising their products. Maybe they've heard about us moaning about their ad campaigns.

The male sexual dysfunction ad - is that the one where the couple are in the kitchen, their eyes meet and there's THAT look, a kiss and off they go?

Apparently 'applied' technique plays a part in all that as well as the mind............so I've heard.
