TV Adverts....

The temperature has dropped.  It's warm and sunny and very pleasant.  I'm off to Bodrum to get a much needed haircut today, so I'll leave you with some TV adverts ....for want of something more interesting to blog about!
 
This one irritates me but also makes me laugh. The acting is so bad, I wonder how it ever achieved air-time.
 
 
 
I find these British Gas ads a bit creepy.  I don't like the way the ad people put almost human faces on these weird shaped animated characters.  For me, it's the stuff of nightmares.
 
 
 
 
Ah...but this one I really like!  The song by the Animals takes me back to my youth.  I think David Beckham is lovely!
 
 
 
 
Are there any TV ads...past or present...that you love or hate or just find irritating?

  1. We rarely watched TV in the UK. At one point our TV broke and we didn't notice till a friend came to stay over Christmas and wanted to watch the Dr. Who special... Here we only watch Turkish TV and, whilst several of the ads are somewhat irritating, they are helping us with our language skills so we tolerate them. We also enjoy the ways in which they differ from UK TV ads.

  2. Oh, I should have said... Love the Animals soundclip. I do rather like the Turkish Dove for Men ad.

    1. omentide we haven't had a TV for nearly 3 years now so I just watch programmes on line, and they don't include any Turkish TV, although I do remember how different their ads were from UK ones. So I haven't seen the Dove one...maybe I'll google it.

      I do recall how some of the Turkish soap operas were quite cringeworthy. Bad acting...a bit like the UK soap Crossroads (if anyone remembers that from way back!)

  5. Never saw these TV Commercials before.....interesting. I like that word advert, reminds when I was in London and someone once told me to go past the 'advert' at the airport I didn't have a clue what they were telling me, meaning what is an advert????. But I did finally find my way.....
    ..........thanks for sharing those commercials.

    1. Erica isn't it odd how we speak the same language but there are so many different words for the same thing!

  6. No TV in France or Scotland, Ayak, but while in Wales my favourite still has to be anything with the meerkats. :-) I too hate the British Gas ads - who on earth told them these would sell anything?

    I'm glad the dreadful heat has gone for you. Enjoy the cooler weather.

  7. Smug is the word that comes to mind after the first video! Yes I agree the acting is appalling. The woman sounded like a zombie.
    There are some very irritating ads.Not sure if I can think of a particular one that I like. I see the Meerkats has already been mentioned!
