Worst TV commercials...

Now so many of you are in isolation I suppose that you are watching more TV than you normally would. Of course this means you are also watching more ads than ever, even if you do mute them – so in your opinion what is the worst ad on TV? What advertisement really makes you cringe?

There is one presently on the TV here for men’s organic bamboo underpants that is so annoying. Definitely cringeworthy. There are some that don’t make sense with no apparent connection to what they are advertising. Pointless.

Let's hear what commercials annoy you the most.

Re: Worst TV commercials...

the guy who does the ad for Enterprise vehicle hire. if i needed to hire a car they,d be the last place i,d visit even if the cheapest. Had a talk about TV adverts years ago saying that they must be counter productive anyway. still will not buy anything with a Sharpe name on it due to their association with manchester united.

The Jenny Eclair advert about vaginal dryness does it for me.....and there is another one about women's issues where a woman is shown with a tampon string poking out of her underwear....gross, totally gross.
Now Tampax have got in on this act too.....asking if you can 'feel' your tampon....telling you that it isn't in far enough.
For goodness sake....do we really need this?
It smacks of wokeness to me.

There are others that are just annoying....'are you going to Bingo' is one of these....in fact there are too many that make me want to throw something hard and heavy at the screen.

I could go without TV quite happily.

Re: Worst TV commercials...

just do as i do. swith to something else for a few minutes whilst adverts are on. with ptactise you can get it spot on at times and adds to the enjoyment of watching television. make sure you only swith to BBc programmes as ads seem to be on all the others at the same time.

Don't mind most of the adverts, although the new Tampax one that Margaret mentioned raises my hackles a bit, it's some of the programmes between the adverts that get on my nerves

We hate the adverts on TV. So since I was in lock down for ninety days I thought I would try Netflix. no adverts and some brilliant TV to watch. The cheapest to watch is about 5.00 and the next is £8.00. You can cancel anytime and you're not locked into a contract.

Not exactly commercials, but is anyone else irritated by these so called celebrities doing messages about the wonderful NHS.
The majority of those involved would probably never use the NHS.....they are just using it as a vehicle for raising their own profile...they are opportunistic virtue signallers.

Re: Worst TV commercials...

think they have changed the dictionary definition of what a celebrity actually is. surely i,d know who these people are if they were really famous.

Like you, I have to ask who some of these people are.
I just think it is a bit glib of them.....they are living in good size houses with facilities that most of us can only dream of....so they know nothing of the hardships that are felt by the people they are applauding....key workers.

Re: Worst TV commercials...

cannot think these people ever can be called as ones that clog up GP waiting rooms and NHS beds.

Not for them the difficult task of getting an appointment, waiting in line at 8.30 in the morning or being 27th in the queue to try to see a doctor....and being told all the appointments forbtoday have gone...repeat the frustrating performance tomorrow with similar results.(and I know that since the lockdown there IS no early morning queue at the surgery)
Though that said, if they use private facilities, that means one less patient for the docs to deal with.
