However, a few radio Ads have struck a cord with me & taken note.

 


Kids,tired of being bothered by your pesky parents?
Then leave home, get a job & pay your own bills, while you still know everything.

Don't get me started. Oh, you have!

a) Most ads are aimed at children, and as such there's no more 'quality', just laziness in ideas. What's minion-proof broadband? Why would I buy financial product upon a promise of a toy. Or because of an overweight tenor. Or from a company who think I am easily confused? Makes me want to puke.

b) Then there's gambling advertising. Deliberately misleading. 95% of bets lose. But on telly you'd be forgiven for thinking that every bet is a nailed on certainty. No you lose, so ads should show people losing their bets, their wages, their jobs, their houses, their mental health.
There should be huge levies on each advert transmitted or otherwise published, of say, £25,000, so that HM Gov can offer more finance to essential services.

With gambling, broadband and comparison sites accounting for perhaps 33% of TV advertising, the remainder are scarcely worthy of comment.

Indeed, one advert says "only gamble as long as you"re
still enjoying it" and "only gamble what you can afford"- they leave out the words TO LOSE !

You mean casino online gambling doesn’t make you feel like James Bond and you’re sophisticated and stylish in a plush casino?

true story,
i had a half packet of fags with a front door key inside, plus keys address, with 'james bond' scrawled on it,
pushed through my letterbox once.
Very perplexing.
About an hour later the police arrived to retrieve the key & briefly question me?
Apparantly the owner was totally barking, living at home with her elderly mother, who'd called coppers incase I'd decided to let myself in & do whatever Mr.Bond would do.

Gambling ads should not be shown before the 9pm watershed

If we're watching a TV channel and the ads come on, either the sound goes off immediately or we switch to another channel. But, there's no escape. They're coordinated. All ads at the same time.

But, what is it with using animated or computer generated animals? They seem to be the marketeers favourite. The latest I've seen, which prompted this, is a talking donkey telling me to buy a mouthwash. What!

How often have you seen an ad and thought - I must buy one of those tomorrow. Hardly ever, if at all, I'd wager. Do companies get a return for the enormous cost involved or is it just an awareness thing?

Anyway, I just find TV advertising a big switch off these days. Certainly doesn't work for me. What about you?

Many years ago my parents owned a confectionery shop. We were amazed as to how tv adverts influenced what people bought. Having said that, the adverts then got straight to the point and didn’t faff around.
At least advert breaks allow for natural breaks!
Personally I wouldn’t mind the BBC being made commercial, at least no license payments would be used to make the c**p they priduce

I had to go into rehab because of my addiction to Curly Wurlys because of that b**tard Terry Scott. The Milky Bar Kid was in the room next to me as well.

The ones I can't stand are the "Give £2 a month to save donkeys in Yemen" or other charity ads that are supposed to make you stick pins in your eyes through guilt at choosing to keep your £2 a month to spend on yourself or give to charities that didn't spend small fortunes on their TV advertising.

In fact, why don't gambling companies donate £2 a month to each of the charities to put on an accumulator of their choice and they can keep the winnings?

 


Living down here does have some advantages. At least you can see them cry.

Or not bought.

A few years ago Vauxhall advertised one of their cars with a bumbling bearded Griff Rhys Jones and sales plummeted as no-one wanted to buy a car associated with a bumbling fool

Ah yes, I remember. I wondered why we don't often see Vauxhall's like we used to.
Trouble is, so many commercial decisions are made by recent graduates, and that includes rubber-stamping advertising.
