Re: The Tesco & other non-Morrisons supermarket thread

Wonder what happened here then? Tesco licensed the photo from Getty Images and Mel B's agent but it seems nobody told Mel B herself. The whole Clubcard Plus ad campaign is piss poor anyway. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-50387714 I wonder if the story was updated after you posted? It...

Gosh that Switched On was infuriating.

I saw 'was' because he'll be no doubt banned by the time most people see this.
Only banned for one week, sadly.

Re: TV Forum Watch News and Information Board

What is JKDerry exactly? He writes these long posts where he seems to make out he knows what he's on about but it largely seems to be stuff he's read on TV Forum reworded into endless, repeating posts.

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

Did a bit of further research and came across this article from The Times from last month, which features this bit:
B&Q is in the process of removing all self-service tills and Morrisons has paused the wider introduction of its machines after customers complained they found them impersonal.

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

Don't really know where to put this but it doesn't need a new thread. Went to B&Q in Aintree last week, and they've removed the self-service checkouts. Looking on Twitter, it appears they've done this in other locations too. Apparently it's because of too many people stealing.

I think I’m the only person who doesn’t like those ‘ITV in the Face’ videos that get posted whenever someone brings up the subject of vintage ITV.

Re: Adverts that irritate and entertain

Nationwide continues its impressively consistent run of awful adverts with the most annoying stand-up comedians ever. Seriously though, on one of them there is a weird production choice where the last joke is made, cue audience laughter, it then cuts to the Nationwide endboard but… we can still hear...

Re: Adverts that irritate and entertain

Now that the PPI deadline's approaching, have we seen the last of the bloke in the Gladstone Brookes ads with that jingle? I do hope so.

Re: TV Forum Watch News and Information Board

It was amusing that he hadn't changed in the time he'd been away. I assume he also asked to delete his account on TVF instead of being banned, though.
