I love the ad where the aggressive daughter storms in to the room and demands her dad signs the 'fession' - for Haribo I think. Loved the Citroen robot dance, too. Can't stand the Go Compare man, but you can't forget him either. An odd one is the Dulux one where the parents paint the room bright yellow and their older son leaves...are Dulux trying to tell us they produce a paint so awful it drives people away??? Some ads are so awful you have to wonder how they got made.
Ads that annoy me at the present moment of time are for anything made by proctor and gamble yes i know your sponsoring the olympics but I dont need hear about in every other ad.

I'm liking the "You Must Be Hank Marvin" ads on at the moment. Can't stand the product they're are advertising (over priced cold supposed-to-be-chicken pieces), but the ad makes me chuckle.
It just made me laugh - you have to assume that was the intention. Certainly didn't shock me, neither did I find it revolting. And I wouldn't have complained, though I do think it's a post-watershed advert. The dog's look of surprise was more realistic than the actor's. Not a good ad, though, and you have to wonder how many people had how many meetings and still decided that was OK.
Those Haribo adverts drive me nuts - that kid is so precocious - same with the Oreo advert. I would never allow my child to behave so disrespectfully towards either myself or their father!
I like the Dulux advert with the parents - they paint their bedroom red, then several kids later repaint it. I love the look on the womans face. It is the subtlety of the implication that makes this a good advert. Kids are blissfully clueless on why this is good and funny but the message is clear in a totally appropriate way.

I think that's the reason I like those ads - they remind me of things my own daughter has done or said, and I could only ever laugh at it whenever it happened.
Oh yea - so there with you on that. The 2012 Olympics already sucks as far as I'm concerned as it's just like Christmas and the other Festive occasions - hijacked by commercialism and how can professional sports people who earn big career money in all honesty partake in what should surely be amateur sports?
I have to agree with @AMLightfoot on the Dulux ad, one of my faves, I cant stand anything to do with "if you have had an accident in the past 3 years" or "if you have had a loan, credit card or mortgage in the past 5 years
All of the loan companies that advertise and charge 278-40000% APR make me shout at the television. And the "Cheque Centre" poster where it says "Borrow £100 for only £25" annoys me too.
