TV Adverts that make you wish for death.

SmallBlueThing(Reborn):
This is always fun- especially as people usually mention the same ones, which makes you wonder just what the hell that ad companies involved were thinking, and how they managed to get it so wrong.

I'll start...

Lenor- people in bed in a park. Explicitly the "What is it!?" and "Mine!" women. This one makes me mute the sound, if I'm quick enough.

"Daisy Daisy Daisy Daisy Marc Jacobs". Again, immediately on mute.

Butternut Box dog food, with the people eating it. That one makes me actively turn over.

And all make me vow to never buy their product.

Over to yous lot.

My mum's 90 and tends to repeat the same things given the same prompts - that Daisy one always winds her up something rotten every single time it comes on! That and the "I'm perfect" one.

The Legendary Shark:

Since ditching the t.v. (I only watch things I download these days), my life is mercifully, wonderfully, peacefully ad-free.

Mister Pops:
Same here Shark, apart from the odd ad-read on a podcast, my life is largely ad free...

...if I didn't like sport.

How are gambling ads legal?

More generally, advertisers just don't appreciate music. Marketeers take a good song and awkwardly snip together the "good bits", because they don't understand how important arrangement and song structure is*. Either that or they commission a deliberately uncanny, discordant mess of a jingle your brain tries to make sense of, but can't, so it stays lodged in there like a aural parasite.

*This seems to be how pop music has been produced since the turn of the millenium.
