Dinglebutt - I aim to misbehave

Aye. There has been some cracking adverts through the years, but the vast, vast majority are pure dogsh*te and onions. Meerkats, Co Compare, Random barely-a-celebrity advertising something they'd never be seen dead near, Mick Jagger's daughter advertising an eyelash curler that makes your eyelashes so big they could all collectively fill in the gap between her front teeth.... It's all a bunch of bullsh*t.

Rarely even watch tv any more, it's all dvds or downloads for me

This is good though. Not sure if it's an ad or viral marketing, but s'good either way
Mal: Appears we got here just in the nick of time. What does that make us?
Zoë: Big damn heroes, sir.
Mal: Ain't we just.

(i sometimes mute the TV to avoid adverts. The worst advert is the one about how males shouldn't hit females. As i said on page 111 of Paula's Rants thread and on the 15th of March, 2010, that advert freaks me out. Oh, and there was an advert that annoyed me a few days ago. i can't remember what it was for but it annoyed me that the phrase learning disabilities was used. People should just say disabled as it's less patronising.

Another thing that annoys me about adverts is when they sometimes have adverts that mention C-mas. They should wait until November.

Finally, an advert that annoys me is the Halifax advert where they sing A Hard Day's Night. This might not bother Stu as he isn't a Beatles fan. But i am so it invokes my fruity wrath.)

Lots of adverts are really fun and sweet, sometimes, I think.

i ended up putting More 4 on a couple of hours ago and i saw an advert for some weight loss thing. It showed a woman who had gone from size 10 to size 6 and another woman who had gone from size 10 to size 4.

As James said about Weight W*tchers in 2009: Still. F*ck them. Who are they to tell anyone to feel about anything?
