Personally I like the esure/Winner ads, it annoys the crap out of everyone else, that's what it's supposed to do - calm down!

Quite right too.

Patronising rubbish.

Sorry to have to inform the rest of you, but the Shake n Vac ad was massively succesful and had the product flying off the shelves faster than they could stock it.

There is a VAST difference between a good ad and an entertaining ad.

SAdly...

I hate the Ford Focus C-Max advert. Adopting a BMW style advert does not make it a quality car.

Likewise the Toyota Avensis (and all of those car ads that try to elevate run of the mill cars to luxury status). I'm sure they cut the ad too early and the dialogue runs like this "What was it you said you did............street sweeper judging by the car you drive"

Having said that Peugeot have done a good job with their advert - they manage to go through the entire thing without showing the rear section of the car, which is frankly digusting.

I hate anything with those 2 fat slags from Birds of a Feather. I'm sure they've been in adverts. Those would be the worst.

Any advert exploiting football especially that nike? one with all the galacticos in a mediaeval kickabout.

It was Surf.

I had some connection with that one. Massively effective.

The latest McDonalds campaign boils my blood more than any other at the moment. Not the Timberlake nonsense, but the one aimed at selling their 'healthy' salad range.

So, you are a sophisticated, attractive professional female and you want to meet your similarly sophisticated etc pals to talk about, I don't know, men or shoes or something..... 'hey girls we shall we meet? Trendy overly-designed bar? Poncy restaurant? Oooh no it's got to be McDonalds!'

The thought of those bints heading down to the formica & chav paradise as a 'modern lifestyle choice' is hilarious.
More honest advertising please - aim your McDonalds ads at lazy portly oversalted idiots like me and everyone's happy!

Sorry, first post and I'm coming on like Naomi Klein.

Really? The thread title is 'the worst ad'.

Don't see anything about a viewer's pov in those words. The only bad ad is one that doesn't sell. And many of these ads are simply not targetted at 'BBS demographics'.

Now 'favorite', or 'noisome', that's another matter entirely...

I'm with Sunny on this. No tv ad has ever moved me to buy a product. I'm sure a few have had quite the opposite effect. Most just make me want to put my boot through the screen.

Just as I corrected the spelling on my last post one of those bloody Mint card ads came on. They really get my goat (not sure what I'm doing with a goat in the first place, mind). You just know there's some smug, self-satisfied media tw*t patting himself on the back over how funny he is.

Even if I wanted (or was allowed!) a credit card, I'd base my decision on interest rates etc., not on the fact that some c*nt made the card an unusual shape. F*ckers.

I never said EITHER ad was 'creative' Sunny. Just effective.

As for your comment, Doctor, it is a well known fact that very few ever admit that an ad made them buy a product.

It's equally a well known fact that advertising (In general) works. (If it didn't the marketeers would LOVE to cut that expenditure from their budgets).

Take those facts together and you have a logical gap, to which there is only one answer...

Hence the single quote marks I used. I was being slightly ironic.

And effective doesn't necessaarily equal good in my eyes. So many evil things are effective, I'll leave you to dream up some examples from history.

Hmm. Actually, in real life rather than your eyes, (Inside The Brain of Sunny Fan?) good=effective and nothing else, 'adwise'.

If your company had to choose, would it rather you produced good reports or enjoyable ones?
