Most Hated Radio Advert?

Recommended Posts

Listening to the radio in the shower, mine has to be anything by Paragon Recruitment. They always seem to make the Isle of Man residents sound like a right bunch of inbred yokels. I really hate their adverts

 

Any others that really get on your nerves?

'Gallows yard.'......... thing is, if it was sung by a true Manxman (woman) it would go more: " Calla's yaard, it's bunged in the aass a Cassltown, yissir "...don't you think?

 

 

 

Edited to add 'Yissir'.

I hate the one for cups.

 

"Cups cups cups, you need them for your drinks, cups cups make drinking easier don't you think?

Cups cups cups, just put your fluid in 'em, cups cups cups, tea or coffee or even semen"

 

It's rubbish, everyone knows you need cups, and everyone's got cups, so why they have to advertise them I'll never know.

I remember a radio ad for Kingsmead Finance which featured some idiot singer performing an obvious self-penned ditty on the delights of loans. It was truly awful.

 

So bad, I switched to Conister.

 

Anyone else remember it?
