Particularly good/bad adverts (potentially rolling)


#343

I think it might reflect the ratio of content on YouTube, sad men with a lot of time on their hands generating content


#344

And I’m always having to manually search for the best video essays. ffs youtube


#345

About 90% of which are about how much they hate the new Star Wars films :wink:


#346

Those people would have hated it even if it was good, which it wasn’t


#347

:thinking:

It’s so weird to me that people who have no problem with Leia or Lando in the original films absolutely shit their pants when a new character who isn’t a white male is introduced.

Lando = GREAT
Finn = BAD, SJW BULLSHIT

Leia = GREAT
Rey = BAD, SJW BULLSHIT


#348

The funniest one is Holdo, because she has purple hair which they think signifies sjw-ness, but it’s Star Wars, aliens and stuff, there should be more purple hair if anything


#349

Have realised we’re in the wrong thread, this was a discussion about YouTubers who hate women in adverts, not YouTubers who hate women in Star Wars films, the two are very different.


#350

Having seen the TV ad now, I see that it’s a parody. I just didn’t have a clue what the advert was trying to do when I first saw it in the street. Are Oasis trying to appeal to the :joy: crowd with this ad? I really don’t understand it


#351

I took it to be an advert for advertising. Like a more subtle version of those “x-thousand people see this per day, please spend your advertising budget with us” posters you see from time to time.


#352

Just seen an advert for Viking Cruises which, when talking about the Scandinavian designed furniture, contains the line “with colours inspired by nature”. FFS.


#353

don’t really get the M&M’s where the guy comes back and finds an M&M in bed with his partner while another M&M watches from a cupboard, what is going on here, and aren’t these cartoon M&M’s aimed at children


#354

It’s how to break to kids that their parents are getting divorced


#355

Facebook can fuck off with their “we promise not to be evil anymore” advert


#356

Absolute state of this


#357

McDonalds - dad kid touchscreen ordering. Hate these cliche bullshit efforts.

Suzuki Vitara - ravey dodgems. Not sure. Decent music, but all the usual car advert bullshit.


#358

capri sun ‘don’t send your kids to the moon’


#359

Delia Smith’s acting is particularly bad


#360

There’s one I’ve seen far too many times today (3, I think) for some head lice shampoo with a child on it that is far, far beyond irritating.

I hope the lice eat her.


#361

The Lady Macbeth one?

The performance is terrible but I like the tagine.


#362

Yeah, some sort of Shakespeare shite.

Not really absorbed most of the advert as I’m too enraged by the time the child has finished.
