Re: Adverts that irritate and entertain

That EE 5G ad, it feels like they think it's really impressive but boy, you had to be there didn't you. It cuts so fast you can barely process what's going on and when you can make it out it's so meh.

Re: High Street chain collapse sweepstake

I’m putting all the chain Italian restaurants in the “negative outlook” category. I don’t think the bloodshed of 2019 is nearly over yet, and there’s still about a million of them. Carluccios has started widely discounting now too, which they never used to do. I agree with you. there is too much co...

Re: High Street chain collapse sweepstake

Topshop/Man in Westfield Stratford is closing in February. Seems mad that a major, busy store in one of the country's most important shopping centres is closing. I wonder if Arcadia's troubles will be rearing its head again soon. One wonders if this is a rent issue. The question is what happens wit...

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

I went past the Coral betting shop on Warren St in London this morning which is reopening soon after refurbishment and interestingly it looks like it might also be a coffee shop. It was full of plush sofas and nice interiors. An interesting attempt at getting a different demographic to begin crippli...

Re: Adverts that irritate and entertain

I knew the second I saw this ad that it would be banned. It looked exactly like they were offering a service where you could get multiple takeaways from different companies in one order. What were they thinking?

Re: TV Forum Watch News and Information Board

It's great to see JKDerry's bullshit being called out regularly now. And his reluctant admissions that he is just guessing.

Re: The Unofficial Sainsbury's Thread

I've finally updated my Nectar for online use and on the app for the digital card. Is the smaller reader on the staffed checkouts with two lights on the front to read the barcode from smartphones? Also if you store your Nectar offers in Sainsbury's on the app, do you have to use the digital card to...

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. You'd almost think he used to work in TV but I don't think he has and he's just making assumptions...

Re: High Street chain collapse sweepstake

Here's a great video on why Thomas Cook and so many other airlines go bust at pretty much the same time of year and how a Malaysia Airlines A380 ended up being such a key part of the CAA's repatriation efforts. Highly recommend this YouTube channel generally.

Who even is Paul Akinbola and why do people have a fit whenever he posts? Literally the only thing I know about him is he posts something and it just gets followed by a load of “ffs Paul Akinbola again” replies.
You clearly never read his gameshow idea involving nappies filled with faeces.
