The ee advert was OK to begin with but when you see it over and over again each night, it's just too long, but I love the wee dog!

They're all dreadful. I loathe adverts which is why the mute button and time slip is such a boon

Re: What are your best and worse TV ads?

Just had the misfortune of seeing an advert for a machine which removes dry skin from your feet.

I don't want to watch someone filing cheesy flakes off their plates of meat while eating dinner thank ye.

Re: What are your best and worse TV ads?

I really like the Omega ad at the moment. Great bit of animation and music.

I wonder if LOTR composer is getting royalties.
