Nescafe Azera (or however you spell it) cappuccino in a can.

The one with the hipster in the laundrette washing his trainers. The clunk and thump of his shoes in the machine providing a beat, he starts jamming away on his guitar, then suddenly all these other weirdos turn up and it turns into a party.

A) Why is the laundrette deserted?
B) Who washes just their trainers?
C) Where's the owner/manager of the laundrette when all this is going on?
And D) Why doesn't said manager kick all the hipsters out for scaring away paying customers?

And if it's all we only pass this way but once, what a perfect waste of time.

I hate Vodafone advert where girl is dressed in a red outfit and then she seems to have cloned versions of herself.

I do like dancing sloth advert for the Eve mattress.
Makes me smile for some reason.

As for Nescafe advert I do agree with you.
I wash trainers in a pillowcase that has end tied in a knot and throw in bath mats and towels to give machine a bit of padding. ::):

The choreography of the Vodafone ad is pretty much its only good point.


I like the new Meerkats ad though. Oleg and his wee friend Ayana getting reunited with Aleksandr and Sergei, it'd bring a tear to a glass eye. :)
Although the whys and wherefores of how they got from Africa to San Francisco remains something of a mystery.

The scary ghost in the Smithwick's advert.

Am I the only one who's a bit disturbed by the giant tongue in the new Coca Cola ad?

I really don't like that Coke advert at all.

If you're talking about drinks adverts then I don't mind most of the Carlsberg ones.
I think the Guinness advert with the fox and the snow is one of my favourites.

I think the dancing man in MAOAM advert is kind of strange.

I swear, Amazon's ads are getting worse.

Those damn singing boxes are back - murdering "Everybody Needs Somebody To Love" - and no bugger in the ad looks particularly cold because it would've been shot in the middle of July.

Not sure about M&S Christmas Jumper advert with 'Pack it up, pack it in' playing as people go into dance routine.

I imagine the other M&S one for food will be seen as more festive.
It has a Welsh school choir singing along to 'Albatross' by Fleetwood Mac.

Never thought I'd live to see the day when "Jump Around" by House of Pain was used in a Christmas ad.

John Lewis have had to apologise for some kids being upset by the plight of the dragon Edgar in the latest advert.
I have only seen the advert a couple of times but I think bit where snowman melts is maybe too much for some.

Does anyone else think that Vauxhall have copied Coke advert with people looking out the window at car rather than
man drinking a can. The format is pretty much identical and is for the Astra model.

Maybe it's the same ad agency?

Gucci 'Guilty' perfume advert.
People dressed in outfits more like something out of 1960s and various creatures appear including a snake, a tiger, an ostrich and an owl. It just strikes me as rather odd is all but perhaps others think differently.
