    Tell you what I do like, it's the Abbot Ale sponsor slots on Dave/Dave ja vu. Brian Blessed at his self-parodying best. :D

    It's not really a commercial ad, but I like the First Click ad on the BBC, it's effective and it addresses its target audience perfectly. I think it's brilliant.

    It's the Scotch video tape one for me! I can still remember the words ( I know - "get a life" etc !!)

    The ambulance chaser ads have a peculiar naffness level. It's equalled only by the cash-for-gold ads, the ones that look like such a good channel for disposing of stolen goods.

    There's one ad device that really is a nuisance-bra for me (it gets on my tits), and that's the use of loud whispers. Typical is the SEAT car ad that ends "auto emocion". Fingernails down the blackboard, is that one.

    I have to say that it's the corporate idents that annoy me, king of which is the Intel one, but Danone have theirs too, The Express and a few others. :mad:

    Any ads about "digestive transit" (which you're led to believe is a woman thing) especially the one where the woman, who looks so "backed up" her eyes are bulging, appologises to her friends for being late and is subtly recommended a laxative product. My advice to women with "transit" problems? Don't hold on to your f**ts, just let rip like men do...sorted!

    This one ridicules the natives of Huddersfield, so can't be all bad. ;)

    Too bad they don't make ads like this one anymore ...

    This Dunlop Ad from the early 70's is one of the first ones I remember making me laugh out loud.

    the Aunt Bessy's food ads

    There's no shortage of them but:

    1 - The one with the weird ice sculpture and the Japanese butler, I can't remember what it's for though - fail!
    2 - ISA ISA Baby - I think she's quite pretty but that head bobbing really irritates me for some reason.
    3 - The ones that use one film and multiple language voice overs (Petit Filou I think do this) they don't so much annoy but I have started trying to spot them. How sad is that.

    Probably time to move this back to the 'Games room', although I'm not sure why :D

    As such I hope that forum regulars will choose their post location with careā€¦ makes it easier for all :)
