AdTurds Bad Adverts – Badverts

Suggest An AdTurd

Tell me about the worst advert currently on television - the one that really grinds your gears, the one that makes you switch off, hurl obscenities at the television or simply throw yourself out of the window.

The Admiral advert, Tesco advert or Just Eat advert? Or long-running series from the likes of Money Supermarket, Confused.com or Go Compare? Or simply the newest thing that had you gouging your face in annoyance.

I'll try to track down the worst offenders and give them the AdTurds treatment. It won't change anything - but it might make you feel very slightly better about the world.

Browse the old comment section - with over 1100 comments complaining about adverts - for more misnathropy.

Do your worst - but keep it civil. No personal abuse - and anything that smacks of bigotry in any way will be deleted and the user banned. That means:

    No racism.
    No sexism.
    No homophobia.

    The latest McDonalds advert with the mum and lad who’s dad is dead and the only similarity to his dead dad is that he gets tartar sauce on his chin is truly awful

    I hate all bingo ads, especially Foxy Bingo…cheesy naff bollox….using uber camp Northern accents

      The one with Heather Graham lip-synching a fake “cheerful-chappy salt-of-the-earth” accent. Ye Gods, is she so broke she has to do this stuff?

    Every bank pretending to practically be a charity and claiming their doing the world good. Fuck you nationwide, lloyds etc (the worst 2 offenders). You are all out there to mug people off with shit they can’t afford to pay back, and the general public aren’t all that fucking thick they believe the bullshit spewing out of your adverts. So put a fucking sock in it. You’re a bank NOT A CHARITY.

      Lloyds. Our hand in your pocket since 1750-something. Proving whoever gets screwed in a crisis or a recession it’s never going to be us.
