Most of them are pretty dire tbh, but one in particular that I can't stand is the Boots "Secret Santa" ad.

There is one advert which I quite like though. I can't remember what it's advertising, but a bunch of panicing people turn up at a Petrol Station at 11:50pm on Christmas Eve and clean it out buying last minute presents. That made me chuckle the first time I saw it.

If at first you don't succeed, failure may be your style.

"It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas" Arrgggh!

No, it's not. The sun's shining, not a present, tree, decs, lights, cards or anything that looks remotely like Christmas thankyou.

Dunno if Des is in it or not. Don't even remember what it's advertising. I mentally switch off in the ad breaks but those ruddy jingles just get implanted in the brain, especially the sponsored ones that they have at the end and beginning of every ad break.

I'm another one who hates the Iceland ads - put me off going near the place!

What's so funny about peace, love and understanding?

No, that one is a Tesco ad. But lol! He does look as though he's been embalmed.

"It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas" is an Asda ad.

God, how terribly sad that I know this....
