Favourite has to be the Woolworths Christmas ad circa 1981. Anything else since is just invasive rubbish.

It's a bit Hitch hikers guide to the galaxy. A tragic miscalculation of size. As you say it's a bit weird.

Water charity adverts, why is a family dependent on a small child going miles to get water? What's wrong with the adults? Have they lost the ability to walk?

I feel all bingo, gambling and casino adverts should be banned.

The constant ads for charities; where has the money for these ads come from?

Totally agree with you there. I`m guessing the amount given after an appeal far outweighs the cost of the adverts. They are very annoying though.

The meercats `frozen` advert was by far the best advert this Christmas for me.
