    Nordvpn . Footballers are usually wooden in adverts but somehow the Liverpool players achieve this when they're just looking at their phones

    And sitting around in the dressing room looking at screens in silence doesn't show great team spirit

    That one for the lottery where they are all sitting in the call centre while the balls drop and then the phones start ringing and the woman happily confirms that yes you won 1.1 million quid.

    I actually can't imagine many jobs that don't actually involve dead bodies much more soul destroying than having "HAHA it WASN'T you" constantly rubbed in your face while you graciously smile and congratulate other people while probably wondering how to make it to the end of the month without a payday loan...

    Calamity1971 If Mr Peanut says It's okay, then it is.

    I was just sitting here thinking the same. Having worked in a call centre and found it soul destroying, that would be the epitome of 'fuck me, my life is shite'.

    I mean I've worked in the funeral sector, I just think a job congratulating lottery winners would be too depressing for me.

    Couldn't agree more. Whoever thought those up shouldn't be allowed to think ever again

    StoneRoad heckling from the back!

    Apart from the funeral plan adverts, which I hate with a passion.
    The equity release ones make me cringe nearly as much as the payday loans.

    And my pet hate at the moment are the credit score ones (they've been around for a while) but the current crop are quite dreadful.
    Apart from the "wot doing ?" dog ... he's cute

    scifisam feck! arse! girls! drink!

    Two women are exercising and discussing their holiday costs.

    Another woman jumps in between them to say "actually..." Basically, like she's a real life version of a pop-up ad. And instead of saying fuck off, we were having a private conversation here! they're very appreciative of her intruding into their chat with an ad for a company.
