Default Adverts/Commercials that get on your tits !

Well fortunately the BBC have deemed to not increase the licence fee for 2 years which is a bonus, just glad they have not been forced to sell Advertising/Commercials like the rest of the TV stations, anyway it got me thinking, which TV adverts (Commercials) really get on your tits?I dont just mean slightly annoying I mean ones that make you want to throw objects at your TV or write a strongly worded death threat to the advertising standards agency?
A couple for me are
DETTOL No-Touch Hand Wash System, basically they are trying to sell us an expensive no touch soap pump because they can harbour germs, well im about to wash my fecking hands with dettol soap so does it matter???i have just wiped my arse im pretty sure that the soap pump is the least of my worries.

Mascara (any brand) usual story, this make up products will make your lashes look longer ,thicker etc etc, then underneath in small letters "lash inserts used and enhanced in post production" thats right girls a super model needed lash inserts and CGI to make her lashes look that good! what chance have you got???


Sliderobes (not sure of the spelling)
the basis is simply putting slidding doors on your wardrobe, this the company claim will give you more room in your bed room!!! No it wont, the room will be exactly the same size it was before, the only difference will be i wont need to open the door outward, if i try to use the space infront of my wardrobe that you say i have "gained" i still cant get to my clothes.

HUGE BITZ RESTOCK NOW ON

After watching Screenwipe's advertising special, i get more and more frustrated at any advert that uses the word 'helps'.

As Mr Brooker so succintly put it, 'helps' doesn't quantify anything....stamping up and down on the ground 'helps' to flatten the earth.

Anything clinically proven to help do something is most likely useless.

The Arial one where that fella walks across the glass in white socks and that bloody women goes on about washing them at 15 degrees. Her voice makes me want to scratch my eyes out.

Haha, absolutely agree about the No-Touch Soap Dispenser and glad I'm not the only one. I'm not British so nothing really "gets on my tits", but the Snuggie commercials piss me off. "Oooh I'm wearing a blanket like it's a robe OLOLOLOLOLOLOL!" Really? That's all someone could come up with? Plus they have one where a bunch of people are dancing wearing those God-awful things (which come in a variety of colors and designs, mind you), saying "DO THE SNUGGIE!"

Whoever thought of those commercials needs to be fired. Oh, and a newish one I saw about Cinnamon Toast Crunch, where some random lady is doing a webcam-type thing like she's about to put it on YouTube, just saying how awesome the cereal is and acting like a goofball. No thanks, people aren't that braindead. I think. I hope.

Well, here in the US we have a company that will give you a lump sum payment instead of the small monthly settlement payments you may receive. (For ass hats who get into a car accident and sue the hell out of someone.) They have the worst fucking commercials ever. One add has people yelling out their windows, "It's my money, and I want it now!" at the top of their lungs. This happens repeatedly and is so fucking stupid I want to hurt someone. They have another add were an opera singer, (who looks like a dirty pre-op transvestite) dressed in a viking costume singing on a bus, "it's my money and I want it now!" Aaarrgghh... STFU! STFU! STFU!

The other adds are viagra and ciallis. Boner pills, do we really need to advertise hard-on's during episodes of cartoons or children's tv shows? Well, they do, and it is retarded. Keep you limp dick issue to yourself, my kids don't need to hear about a 4 hour rager you have in your pants.

There is also a stupid braclet that claims to increase your balance and natural restorative powers with "biofield powers." Biofield powers? What the fuck is biofield powers? They go on to say, "the main health benefit of the Bracelet is the ability to inspire each and everyone’s inner strength." Thats right, it is to INSPIRE you. It is magic people, a magic charm bracelet to INSPIRE you to feel better! You have to be a complete fuck tool or have the I.Q. of 70 to buy this shit.

There are so many more dumb advertisements on US television, I could be here all month typing...

Those commercials are so "successful" that I don't even remember the company who makes them. I only remember their stupid catchphrase.

Hint: If people don't catch your name from your commercials, you've failed!
