Gio, Cara, Hagglehero, Aleksandr: Vote for your favourite price comparison site advert

As we've already discovered, people think that Confused.com is now some sort of dating site thanks to its latest weird-ass ads featuring a swivel-eyed mentalist thrashing around on the screen.

After the swivel-eyed loonie warbled and wailed its way through Somebody To Love and Chain Reaction, making everybody believe that the price-comparison outfit had ventured into some sort of lonely hearts website for crazy cult members, there's now an advert out trying to reiterate the point that it's actually a website about comparing insurance quotes - something about ten billion miles away from a strange karaoke with a load of weird squiggles bouncing their tits around.

Too little too late? However annoying the meerkat, Go Compare and Moneysupermarket ads are, there's an undoubted clarity of purpose to them. The new Gio-in-space and John Prescott Money Supermarket ads suggest that these memes have a lot further to run, so I thought I'd do a poll to see which are peoples' favourites of the price comparison ad wars.

Vote for your favourite at the bottom. Before you get there, here's a reminder.

    It’s odd. All of these annoy me, but the meerkat ones annoy me most. Maybe because they’re such self-satisfied, unfunny shit. And have encouraged a whole load of morons to say “simples” as though it’s somehow hilarious.

    meerkats are going to be the least shit. But they’re still annoying because their ads basically go along the line of “the people who use our site are too fucking stupid to know the difference between a meerkat and a market, even after we’ve told them over and over again”

Hate adverts?

This is the one chance you’ll ever get to fight back against terrible adverts. For once, the boot can be on the other foot. Deliver it to the knackers of evil – and hit the buttons below.
