TV Ads


#1

What with Netflix and magic recording telly boxes I literally NEVER EVER see any TV ads.

I’m surprised they haven’t gone the way of Games Workshop.


#2

Loads of people just sit down and watch whatever they fancy most out of what’s on at the time, like millions of people. TV ads still have a very big reach


#3

I only watch live television


#4

I’ve not had the internet at home for a bit so have actually seen some ads recently.

I have to admit I am enjoying the new McDonalds coffee one a lot.


#5

I still claim to my wife that I like to only watch Live television as I cant retain a perspective on time watching recorded stuff and it feels weird. Just for a laugh.


#6

Yeah. What a bunch of chumps.


#7

The nationwide advert, as has probably been discussed on here at length, might be the worst ad campaign ever created. Ever.


#8

You mean everyone isn’t exactly the same as me?


#9

I’m saying that you’ve lost touch with traditional labour heartlands, yes


#10

WAIT there is one ad I have seen.

Fucking Audi ad with a standard advert-breathy-female-vocal cover of Simon and Garfunkel


#11

I know a 19 year old who only knows Kevin Bacon as ‘the EE man’, didn’t know he was a film actor beforehand. Yep.


#12

I don’t think I know any teenagers that I’m not related to


#13

I know 2 teenagers on a social basis. They’re fine but make me feel old continuously.


#14

:neutral_face:


#15

I’m going on a list aren’t I


#16

I only really see TV ads when they’re also shown in the cinema.

Every bank advert/building society advert we saw before Moonlight (Nat West, Nationwide and Halifax) made me never want to give them my custom.
