Wonga has voted the worst advert of 2013 poll by AdTurds readers in an absolute landslide, the like of which I’ve never seen before. The Wonga.com advert got almost twice the number of votes that the second-placed advert; the Wonga.com advert got many more than the bottom eight-placed adverts put together; the Wonga.com advert got three votes out of every five cast. People really, really hated the Wonga.com advert.
I honestly can’t find anything else to say about these Wonga adverts and I don’t intend to mention them again. I’ll let others speak for me from now on, so you don’t just have to take my word – or that of AdTurds readers – for it. The last one says it all, really.
I usually love the sound of a guitar, but the Wonga advert with the man and the elderly perv who's made of plasticine makes my teeth itch.
