Predictably Go Compare, the current Death Star of shit TV adverts, ran away with the award for worst advert of 2009.
Over a third of you voted the chirpy tenor straight to the top of the year’s most awful, annoying and smug adverts. And Christ was there competition.
My own bete noir, the Samsung Fucking Jet ad, spoke to me on a much more fundamentally disturbing level, as if I were looking into the very eye of some form of abstract quintessence of evil.
On the other hand the Duffy Coke ad showcased what a duck would look like if it went on a by-law flouting bicycle trip to a supermarket in search of some fizzy pop.
Frankly, they’re all fucking terrible. I expect when Samsung takes over the world I’ll be strapped into a chair, Alex DeLarge-style, and forced to endure them forever. Ho hum
