I totally agree - the guy says "I've got a family saloon (or something) and they give him a quote straight away - as if getting car insurance is ever that easy!!! The only ad that comes close in the irritation stakes is the Halifax "we are sailing" one. Do they test screen ads do you think? Oh, and the Abbey National one that is trying to glamourise divorce and bankruptcy is pretty grating too. You've got me going now...........................
There are a couple of others that have the same effect - the Sharwoods woman saying 'Did ya here that - aromatic spiiiiices' when it caught me on a bad day literally made me scream with fury. Also those ITV incidental things with all their horrendous c list celebrities in slow motion trying to look vibrant and amusing make my blood boil. The one of Cat Deeley being 'wacky' and tying very hard to convey a lack of awarness in her utter gorgeousness is particularly grating.
That man on the E-sure advert, I actually punched the tele once because he is so annoying. Adverts used to be good, but now it's either insurance, mortgages, loans or skincare. It also annoys me that companys are encouraging people to borrow money, knowing full well they are never going to be able to pay it back.
I thought it was just me! Runners up for most annoying are 1. " Why are you waiting ? " ( not even sure what its for , probably loans or insurance ) 2. The one for the loan with the talking blue phone 3. Anything where members of the public re-enact their accident " which wasnt their fault " 4. Anything obviously dubbed
ooooooohhhhh.... you've really hit a nerve there! i absolutely hate those adverts!!!!!!! all those stupid idiots who dance around after getting quoted from the description: 'it's a htachback, and its green.' dont you have to give engine size, NCB, and whether you have it off the rd, etc???? arggggghhhhh! i think that everybody should boycott them. the only consolation is that the latest ads feature the rather funny Craig Cash! still annoying, but now only marginally.......
