I give you Vanorama, with their jingle set to the tune of "Give me oil in my lamp"
That's also quite tame compared to some of their previous ones.

Presumably that's in the Entertain section, because although it features a lot, especially during soccer, it's not remotely irritating to me.
Yes, but your weirdo credentials are well established ;)

Saw an advert for PG Tips tonight which featured the voice of the woman that does the Masterchef voiceovers announcing a dish in the Masterchef way - are there any special rules around her doing stuff like that? I know I've seen ITV presenters do TV adverts and reference their TV work but I don't think I've ever seen it happen with someone from a BBC show.

The Go Compare man's driving my nuts again. I was so glad when they got rid of him (and when they bought in the humerous adverts where he didn't sing), then they bought him back again and now he's as irritating as he as first time round.

Now I neither love nor hate the stuff - I'm a bit like Dave Gorman there. But still, I adore their adverts!

Hairy.

LOL.

Still think the War - Low Rider (on the boulevard) lot were the best mind.

Currently annoying me: The Currys PC World adverts where they get employees to shout in a monotone voice about current offers.

Far better than the latest annoying Nationwide ad with "Chrimbo Limbo". Fucking awful.

They’re Flo and Joan who I saw in Edinburgh and were brilliant so it’s a shame they’ve been reduced to this. The whole Nationwide campaign makes me shudder like a ghost is passing through me. Who on earth is watching these adverts and thinking “yes, that’s the company I wish to bank with”?

They annoy me, but not quite enough to make me want to close my account.
