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...
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
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
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.
Bensons for beds, make up your bed without any sheets or duvet
(trying to give deep water a go lol)
Also has anyone seen the Gucci advert with Harry Styles i think it is, and immediately thought "Charles Manson cult"? We actually thought it was an ad for one of those documentaries.
"What do you want a vacuum cleaner to do?"
I want it to suck the fucking dust off the floor tbh.
Grandpa A always used Euthymol (it smells like Olbas oil - tastes like it, too. Come to think of it, I think he used to gargle with Olbas oil mouthwash, I don't think that exists anymore), whilst humming something about remembering he was a plum (must've been summat on the radio during the war).
I also feel sad that he'll also never be annoyed by another seagull (yes, I know I never knew him, but I always feel sad when someone goes before they really should do, because it's fucking shite).
Those Sixt adverts.... Sigh.
They are the latest of a long line of "stupid person hates/is angry about advertised product" advert.
Oh, if a stupid person doesn't like what is clearly an excellent value commercial offering then they must be stupid. I don't want to like that stupid person, therefore I like the product.
It's seems the red haired Oral B woman has finally worked out after 3 years of being in the advert that she's selling a toothpaste
PS. What happened to Twentythreedom?
Must be some scope for fraud in this role though, perhaps somebody calls who is clearly a dick so you say 'no sorry, that's defo not a winner' then get a mate to turn up at their house with a fake Lotto Revenue ID badge and confiscate that golden piece of paper. Or something.
Talking of lotteries. Am I the only one that has noticed only white familes are paraded as winners on the postcode lottery. It is a postcode lottery right?
Hampton by Hilton... Dave, if you don't enjoy being with your friends or doing any of the same activities, why go on holiday with them? Why not just go by yourself on a budget hotel holiday?
Those 'Get Ready for Brexit' on the 31st October adverts on telly and radio, the 31st being the date that we will be leaving the EU.
Jesus wept. Just seen the Sainsbury's Christmas advert. What a pile of utter tripe.
