AdWorms: June’s Most Annoying Advert

A deleterious round-up of annoying things designed to make you spend money.

SMA

I despise the way that advertising pretends that it's your friend, when it's not. Every time adverts make out that they're on your side, that they're trying to help or that they wish you well - remind yourself that they want your money and that's all.

I also hate the way that, as a society, we've elevated motherhood to some sort of irreproachable sainthood, as if people haven't been doing it for millions of years. Well done, you fulfilled your genetic pre-destiny. A generation ago they didn't make a big deal of it - they just fucking gone on with it without posting pictures of the their kids wearing ironic onesies. Just because - The Office so charmingly put it - you let some useless tosser blow his beans up your muff doesn't mean I want to hear about it.

Plenty

Juan Sheet wants to know if Pretty Lady Rachel has 'got plenty wet' after seeing his demonstration of absorption. I mean it's good, but surely it's not that good? If I'm honest I quite like this.

Apple

I just think this is a complete misfire; an embarrassing mistake that Apple hasn't quite recognised. Nice idea, maybe, but an utterly hideous disaster that seems to leave people baffled, insulted or simply very irritated by turn.

Go, you chicken fuck, go.

    YES to the SMA one ‘take it from us, you’re doing great’. How the fuck do you know? I could be using my (happily non-existent) baby as a football for all you know.

    Why show that Chicken Fat Apple Ad in Britain. It is not known to us at all, and not part of our childhoods, it’s just ANNOYING. I suggest we send them an ad with Mr Blobby as it’s theme in revenge.

      What’s Chicken Fat anyway? Some kind of song? I’ve not seen this ad yet.

    I agree with Tracy, the Victoria plumb ad sucks! The twins speaking in sync are creepy as hell.

    • Steph

      YES! I am glad i’m not the only one who thinks this. Def getting a ‘The Shining’ vibe from those twins. Shudder.

    Better Bathrooms – The actors, said loosely…Aaaargh!
    Victoria plumb – Double Aaaargh!
    Dreams – I’d do serious harm to the hiding, flying prat and his wooden sidekick. Apple – WTF!
    Microsoft windows phone & surface- All the money Microsoft have and this irritating patronising rubbish is all they can come up with?
    Safestyle – “pick up the piggin phone” may have been funny in the 70’s, then again maybe not!
    Liberte – just the name irritates me, so much so I would never buy the product.

    I could actually write a book on all the irritating adverts there are at the moment.
