    How do you react to a company when you find one of their adverts REALLY :suicide: annoying?

    Personally my pet hate at the moment has been the series of 118 118 adverts. I point blank refuse to use the company and would rather each my own liver before ringing them.

    Has a tv or radio advert prompted you to boycott the company and if so which ones?

    If its just me can someone call me an ambulance please

    Don't know about the adverts but I just wouldn't use 118 118 because their service is terrible. They use one of those indian call centres and the person on the other end of the line never has a clue where anywhere is or even what you are saying :thumbsdow

    There are quite a few adverts that annoy me but if the product is good enough/does what it says then it wouldn't stop me from using it. For example, I hate the Asda ad's....why hit your backside??? but they're cheap so I wouldn''t stop shopping there just because they've got a bad ad manager. And what one person hates....another one loves :rolleyes:

    God I hate this ad!!!The one where that bloke starts to sing (if you can call it that) to the woman about a p***ing mini burger of all things, she then replies with a load of gut wrenching awful wailing and we get to see what she's had for breakfast in that humongous black hole of a mouth. God don't they feel stupid doing this? Its embarrasing just watching it.PATHETIC ad of the year award goes to them two-YUK!!!!!

    They use two call centres, one in plymouth, the other in Cardiff.

    Even to the untrained ear, the brash dronings of the west country and the screechy liltings of south wales don't sound indian. :laugh:

    still have to watch adverts incase the interupted programme ever comes back on, but i never hear what they're on about. Started to press the mute button for all adverts years ago, after they started the trend of raising the volume for them (like thats going to sell me something more) :thumbsdow

    If i could have foreseen the vomit they call advertising these days, i would have pursued a career in that market. They must be crying out for people with decent ideas, who are clearly thin on the ground.
