My favourite line is "Flakes!".

Great ads.

Hmm, I have found the beast:

I still growl at the absurd dickishness of it all at 0:24.

Ahh, but Moonpig have a new advert where the characters on the cards come alive. I think they've even re-recorded the jingle!

Oh, great(!) Must be able to improve on every second of dickish acting in the whole ad I imagine but then this is an outfit with a logo knocked out by some work experience kid in Illustrator.

LV adverts with that "dum diddy dee" soundtrack make me feel physically ill.

Oh yes I was cursing that only last night. Its the "dwee dwee" bit that gives me the dry boake.

ITV2's daytime sponsorship has some fucking annoying rasta voiced parrot selling Lilt. Makes me not enjoy watching Judge Judy.

Not only that, the visuals in the LV ads are so meaningless and generic (not incl the car bits), it could be an ad for absolutely anything. Utterly overblown for a boring old insurance product.

Doesn't Cilla Black do a more "serious" ad for the 50+ plan? That's getting on my tits now too. AND the logo looks like LVE (LV.com). Irritating.

That Lynx advert with the guy who can roll his eyes backwards is utterly... creepy too.

I see Esther is now doing an ad (which looks like a talk show) for some ambulance chasing solicitors. Exactly the kind of thing she'd have campaigned against on That's Life.

Hmm, is that the one with a disproportionate number of people with interesting teeth?
