Hey Matt - I've tracked down the Shake'n'Vac advert - cringe factor 10 methinks - see what you guys make of it....

No words. Just :o My mouth is literally open.

Ha ha! What a great 'feel good' adddie! - got me smiling all the way through - I laughed out loud especially for the bit where the machines are cheering behind the closed doors  :laugh: Thanks for posting  :up:

ps Actually, it seems strange that not so long ago we were making jokes about Skoda and Skoda drivers:

Motorist: Can I have a locking petrol cap for my Skoda?

Parts Shop Owner: That seems like a fair swap, Sir!

Ok, iv just thought of another ad, wel, series of ads, that i hate, only they're radio ads, not tv 1s, & i think they're only heard hear in Scotland (jeez, im really whittling down the amount of folk who might of heard it, aint i??). For a company called Tile It All. Damn annoying ads that go something along the lines of:

"Hi, im Tony from Tile It All!

Depending on which ad it is he either goes into a big speech about "You buy 1, you get 1 free, you buy 2 you get 2 free, you buy 3, you get 3 free, 3.." , or "Our most Spanishy-ist tiles ever"

And it always finshes with

"Tell them Tony from Tile It All sent ya!"

Damn annoying..

Theres also a few ads, for different kitchen design shops that runs on local radio here. Both of them finish with "find us on St Clair Street, opposite Rejects". Maybe that seems normal, but everything on St Clair Street is opposite Rejects..  ::)

Anyone remember the amusing Cadbury Smash instant mashed potato addies from the 80's?

This will sound like a weird one, but at the moment I absolutely love the Gaviscon advert because when the little guys go down and spray the cooling spray around it really does show exactly how it feels when you take Gaviscon for heartburn!

the new tesco's clothing ad...... a woman riding a horse in a muddy field wearing no shoes and a white evening dress (yeah right) she gets off the horse takes the dress off wipes her legs with it and then gets the exact same dress out of her bag and goes into the party.

GET A CAR!

A new one I really don't like is the

"Are you ready for bingo lotto"

with the man with the squeaky voice on Virgin One

it's so annoying having it over and over and over and over and over.
