Oh God I remember Ocean Finance, and that ad with tw*ts with massive lightbulbs on their heads :confused: :rofl:

There's the ad with the woman with the flat head, tries to portray her as being terribly sensible and err, flat-headed. Though if you look at the APR interest rate at the end it is about 1500% or summat. :eek4:

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.


Well I did once apply for one of those Meerkat toys when I got motor insurance from Comparethemarket.com. I
t 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.

Diabs, noooooo !

Let them eat rich, expensive, funny-shaped, yellow, eggy buns.

Can't say a six month loan from the level headed loans company would seem a good idea to me. :):

I'm sure you will grow to love Cathy de Pilons (sp) eventually. ;) Maybe you should buy one to get rid of your beard? :rofl:

Actually I don't think you have a beard :) (so sorry for the joke) but I've known some young women who have slight moustaches. In years gone by they'd be told that shaving it off would make it grow back thicker so they didn't, but it caused them embarrassment. The Nono would have been good for them.


I don't understand the AA (or RAC I forget) ad about one of their guys visiting a nudist camp and being surprised that the people there are naked. :confused:

I hate those adverts. Charities are by and large scams. Just business opportunities. They have management on 6 figure sums and one of them "Save the children", gave a humanitarian award to a mass child killer.

There is a new 'corgi' advert for a firm who repair gas installations, which puzzled me as anyone as old as me knows that for 40 years or so the name corgi stood for the Council for Registered Gas Installers certificate which was something you looked for when looking for gas bods.

The new ads for this corgi firm seem to be nothing to do with what many will remember, they've just nicked the name. Seems like a deceptive ad to me.

Currently the CORGI brand is licensed for use by a carefully selected range of businesses, including Insurance, Certification, Van Sales, Warranties, Underfloor Heating, Telecoms, Controls, Technical Services and industry-related product lines.


So , yes, it's all bollocks. Not forgetting that the term 'British Gas' is a mis-nomer and any 'quality of work' that might have been linked with the name went out of the window over a quarter of a century ago.

Just seen a patronising Change4Life ad promoting an app that tells you how much sugar is in your food or something :hmmm:
Not only is it patronising, its disturbing. What I eat is no ones business but mine. Wankers :stomp: :stomp: :stomp: :shrug:

I tried that app out of curiosity, didn't seem to work on any barcodes I tried it on.
