Any ads are annoying especially when they break in to the programme at the wrong time.Here we have them before a programme and at increasingly irregular intervals to the end.The most worn button on the remote control is the mute,much to the irritation of my offspring when I visit them,and amusement when they visit me.For the most part I stay away from the commercial stations as much as possible,because there seems to be no regulation over the advertising,the same advert can be repeated three times in one break,but I'm told to live with it as there are no TV and radio receiving licences in Oz.

her from injury lawyers for you .
you know the one with all the teeth.
i tend to tape most programmes and watch them later or the day after and fast forward through the commercials.
and have you noticed that they now tend to go on for 4 or 5 minutes

some are plain daft, but most of the time adverts are better than the programmes.....when i was little there was one about mushy peas, and they were making one pea cry, so it would become mushy....i broke my heart and as u can tell ive never forgot it!

When i was a kid i hated the tv ad with the kid going to the shop for "Plumrose chopped ham with pork" and as he was running he got it all mixed up and said to the shop keeper "a tin of Plumrose plopped ham with chalk" i used to think "thick sod".

Not an ad as such, just one of them 'interludes' it starts with someone singing a nee-naw in back ground, shows two ppl huggin trees and a bloke wi a stupid grin rubbin is belly int mirror. At least ads is servin a purpose tryin fot sell summat but this pile of doo doo seems to have no purpose or sense to it. It sends my blood pressure thru t roof

How come most of the advert's these day's are cartoonised, which a/hole sit's down in an office for hour's on end and think's up this hipe,
The advert about the plastic clockwork couple walking along the road while people wind it up really get's on my waz, I'd like it to step out in front of my truck and let me flatten it

what drives me nuts is a party political broadcast on behalf of some lying political party.

the picture loan really annoys me to. If you were asking for a loan on the phone you certainly wouldn`t break off to talk about scooters.

Have you noticed that when you are on a diet and trying not to think about food, every ad seems to be about lip smacking food, you feel like you can even smell it.

That's bloody annoying.

Hi ozzielass, yes when your on a diet you notice the food adverts more. The food always looks so good but in reality it does not look or taste that good when you have it at home. On saying that though, we have some Marks and Spencers food adverts running over here and the food from there does taste as good as it looks. Expensive though but worth it.

Believe it or not I know of some travellers in London right now who think the M & S meals are the best value. Why bother shopping, cooking? Why can't they make a low calorie version? Not too much to ask is it? I could murder a good Butter Chicken sometimes.

And what about those ads showing people on the lav? Now is that really essential just to sell a bit of bog roll?

There are loads've annoyin ads but which ones do you really like. The one that springs to mind for me was the first Tango one with the orange bloke who slapped a woman right across the face. The slogan was "you know when you've been tango'd" i've never laughed so much. i had tears rolling down my cheeks. granted it wasn't that funny after you'd seen it a few times but the very first time was hilarious.

I've just seen the new advert about the cadbury's cream egg, Where the bloke parks his car and is only feet away from it when a giant cream egg falls from the sky and demolishes his car, it was quite unexpected and gave me a good giggle
