A good slap across her chops should sort it out.


Oh yes her face. Spoils the advert for me.

I hate the "be more dog" ad. I don't even know what it advertises. Suppose that when I do happen to be in front of a tv during ads in either on my phone or chatting.

I know :rofl:
Reminds me of the old joke about the chicken in the library. She goes to the librian and says "Book"
The next day, she comes back and says "Book Book"
The following day, she comes back again and says "Book book book"
The librarian thinks "Jeez, she's getting through these really fast".
It turns out she's taking the books home for her friend, who is a frog - unfortunately each time the frog just answered "Reddit, reddit, reddit...."

The dreadful Knorr stock cubes ad with Marco Pierre White have started appearing again, I thought they'd gone but seems they were only having a break.

I hate the way he speaks the words in the ad. Plus why is he advertising a mediocre product which is composed of Salt, Potato Starch, Vegetable Fats (Palm, Shea Butter, Sal, Butter), Yeast Extract, Sugar, Chicken Fat (2%), Chicken (1%), Spices (Turmeric, Pepper, CELERY Seeds), Flavourings, Onion Powder, Maltodextrin, Lemon Juice Powder, Parsley, Caramel Syrup, Antioxidant (Extracts of Rosemary). Does he really use them - I suspect not.

Oh wait - maybe he is sat back in a deckchair in the Caribbean at the moment getting a big fee every time it is repeated??

Is all the infantile babbling, cartoons and promise of free cuddly toys in exchange for your soul actually selling any shit ? :shrug:

It must do. They wouldn't spend billions a y ear on it otherwise. Propaganda works.

Edward Bernays ( Sigmund Freud's nephew ) was the godfather of Peacetime propaganda [ PR ] - He once doubled the sales of cigarettes in the USA by a clever ad campaign to get women to start smoking. Something hitherto that was considered anti-social.

Social manipulation is hugely profitable whether that's selling the masses shitty beauty products or shitty political ideas :)

We know that social manipulation is hugely profitable, but I thought it came down to cleverer ideas than giving crap toys to grown-ups.

There's some irritating ads that sponsor programmes on the History Channel. At night it's some feckin double glazing ad some dick with a horn, but a more tolerable Wargaming.net during the daytime.

Some grown ups are stupid. The cleverness is tailoring the PR for the social sector target audience :)

Well I did once apply for one of those Meerkat toys when I got motor insurance from Comparethemarket.com. It certainly wasn't that which made me chose them, though I'm told that their sales went up massively when they started the cute animal campaign. I gave to meerkat to someone who seemed to appreciate it. :): Never used that firm who give away little robots. :D

I suppose you get a free Parker pen when you get a quote for burial insurance in the ad fronted by Michael Parkinson. He definitely won't need any insurance to pay for his funeral.

I still remember the previous compare the market ad campaign. it was a drab, frumpy magnolia couple in their early 30s who spoke very boringly and ended up walking into the screen of a laptop. the previous Go compare campaign was just as drab before Shouty welsh opera signer Wynne Evans shouted really loud

A big ad campaign faux pas was Ocean finance. They were advertising everywhere and then decided to stop that and create their own channel on SKY. People hate ads. They aren't going to watch a channel which is just ads, and worse just ONE Company. Whoops EPIC FAIL. :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:
