I can barely remember the TV adverts back home that used to wreck my noodle and make me seethe. However, I don't have too because they are just as bad, if not worse, here. What are your fave and most hated adds?

Right now I can't stop singing - click the B to get the most from TV (though I despise myself for it and hate the jingle) - but I do sort of like the fat guy getting a massage on the Little Ceasers ad - It was hot. It was ready. And I didn't even have to call!!! Though I hate the woman at the end. The skydiver is okay too. Any thoughts ex-pats?

Doooooo the Shake and Vac and put the freshness back! Do the Shake and Vac and put the freshness back. When your carpet smells fresh, your room does too ... etc. etc.

But not the original, I hated that. The one with the bikers and the little rat-like dog with a tartan coat on.

Do people actually get paid for making ads in America? The quality is of the same order as the old cinema ads for local Indian restaurants.

I find the most annoying one to be the 'work from home for $7000' a month lady/advert that is on FSC about 10 times during every footie match/show. Drives us mad.

I can't really think of any good ones, but then again I try to ignore them.

All ad's annoy me, but more so the ones that I find myself singing. You can tune them out on a concious level but then find yourself singing - save big money at Menards..........when you least expect it.
