Dreadful - and quite clever - adverts ...





Pausing only momentarily to ask 'is facebook killing blogging?' (I have a nasty suspicion that the answer is 'yes') one of my favourite facebook pages is false advertising, which is presently having a discussion on the most annoying TV advert. There is a consensus emerging around the infamous Go Compare adverts (overseas readers, they are a car insurance comparison site) - the YouTube entry is introduced with 'Warning: song is annoying and will stick in your head'. This is very true and you were warned. I am on record on facebook saying what I would like to do to this person's moustache. It does not bear repetition in a family orientated blog. The advert below will make your brain bleed too but at least it's clever as opposed to merely annoying. I've some vague idea I may have posted this before. So suffer ...




Cadburys have produced a number of clever adverts, some featuring a gorilla ...





Parting shot: they say you should learn something new every day. Yesterday I  learned that there really is a place called Knob Lick in Missouri. TMI!

I Agree that a combination of facebook & tumblr (text free images) is watering blogging down .......but i suppose the good people of Missouri will be too busy to care.

There is also an Intercourse in Pennsylvania. And a town in Newfoundland called Dildo.

I liked the gorilla one, but the kid one was stupid.
There are all kinds of kickass little towns in America!

What I hate about the ads on UK TV is that I have to have then on my satellite TV but don't even live there. Hardly seems fair.
