I can't really get worked about this one, beyond raising an eyebrow that ads like this still get made, regardless of where they originate.
Nevertheless this one has under the cosh following six complaints and the amusingly-named women's secretariat throwing a wobbler in protest. Even more amusingly the ad agency responsible says it was never meant to be sexist. I find this a trifle disingenuous: the whole thing is founded on sexism.
The campaign includes a scantily-clad Bündchen confessing various blunders to her husband while wearing her knickers, which is flagged up a the right way to confess to such a mishap. A voiceover tells viewers: "You're a Brazilian woman – use your charm".
Youtube has an ace new feature that builds a list of all the videos features on particular websites. In the case of its page for AdTurds it's a roll-call of advertising shame.
Most of the ads feature within that list seem to have a little note at the bottom of the video on the specific video pages. It says this.
As seen on AdTurds - Adverts That Are Shit
It cracks me up and strokes my ego at the same time. What's particularly brilliant is that there doesn't seem to be any way by the account holder to influence them so Harvester, for example, can't change the stinging little nota bene at the bottom of its own advert on its own page.
BMW, Haribo, Bulmers, Harvester - perhaps a few others as far as I know. They all get that unwanted little footnote at the bottom of their ads.
Serves 'em right.
Nothing much to say about these ads featuring Motorhead and Madness playing slowed down version of Ace of Spades and Baggy Trousers, apart from the fact that I really like them.
Haribo advert torture?
Is someone suggesting that the Haribo adverts amount to torture? That they could be used in Guantanamo to drive lads from Bolton into admitting they once went to Pakistan? Or is the reader in question suggesting they'd like to torture the people responsible for the advert? The latter seems likely, given that someone in the 'Suggest an AdTurd' section wanted to push the sweets in question up the anuses of the actors involved 'until they explode'.
New entries included the Toyota Yaris advert and dear old Freddie and Adam - two brothers destined to be loathed forever by 400,00 people for their truly abysmal advert for the BMW 1 Series.
This month I was amused by the following couplet:
how stupid is louise rednapp
how thick is jamie redknapp
Not so stupid or thick that they aren't raking it in all over your TV at any given time of the day, sadly.
Meanwhile, who voices the dog in the Walls adverts? I don't know. A dog? What is a commer corn on the cob? I've been led to believe it's actually a combo piri-piri, though I'm still none the wiser to be honest.
'You're doing it wrong!' entries include such delights as 'compare your shit.com'; 'dirty adverts for shit sniffers'; 'fat girl shagged at butlins'; 'i have embezzled from charity i work for' and, bafflingly, 'based on a sample of 200 customers, flora found that 48% preferred flora buttery. calculate a confidence interval for the true proportion who prefer flora.' Is that an exam question?
Targets of AdTurds readers' dubious affections include Carey Mulligan, Louise Redknapp, Cheryl Baker and Martine McCutcheon ('i would fuck martine mccutcheon up the arse').
Meanwhile no-one seems to know if the Bulmers Plan B advert is a fake. A fake what, exactly? I've no idea, but I do know that I hate Plan B.

You know your career's gone down the toilet when you're reduced to riffing off this prick in a terrible glazing advert.
'Two original what?' is the most obvious question to this really quite terrible campaign for BMW, who haven't had a good advert for sodding ages.
After the mind-frazzlingly misjudged Joy campaign we now get two poshos wanking about their incredible lives – and BMW seems to think we should be grateful.
I cannot possibly explain how hateful this all is. And I never could if I tried for a week. What I find particularly odd is that BMW has a reputation for being a brand of car made used by twats, so why exactly would you want to create an advert showing a pair of twats driving your car?
Incredibly BMW came up with these two – one of them's called Freddie for fuck's sake – out of loads of siblings that wanted to be part of it. So, one is a model and the other is a marble shunter; one them eats 'heavy stuff' the other one eats oh for the love of God I can't go on.
If BMW wanted to find the two biggest twunts on the face of the Earth they succeeded. Normally I'd doubt that that was the intention, but following BMW's recent run of ads I'm not so sure.
There's the quite hideous advert below and an interview with the Lunds below that. The vacant dribbling knob ends. You just know they vote Tory as well.
NB. The page www.2originals.com that hosted a site all about the brothers doesn't appears to be there any more. Wonder why. Perhaps because it was a bloody abomination.
Here's what it said about Freddie - the 'urban one' that looks a bit like Jenson Button - and Adam - the 'sporty one' who looks like Adam Rickett - for the sake of posterity:
Freddie lives in London and enjoys the lifestyle of being in a big metropolitan city where things are happening all the time. He works as a model and an actor and buys and sells a personal account of shares on the stock market in his spare time.
His brother describes him as the sensitive, thoughtful and caring one but also with a great sense of humor and a flamboyant ability to make people laugh.
Adam lives in a cottage in the middle of 26 acres of remote woodland. He loves the outdoors, loves rugby and taking his four dogs out for walks. Adam works as a tree surgeon, felling trees and selling the timber to the local community. He also has a marble importing business where he sources stones from Italy.
Here's what the most recent comment on the specially-created 2Originals Youtube channel makes of it:
