Annoying ads on TV today...

Post by Lucy » January 17, 2013, 11:12 pm

I think he does it 1) to teach the kid the rules 2) to keep the kid fit and 3) he's about to put on his beer helmet and realised he has two spots for beer and he only grabbed one can..

Seems reasonable now..
Avatar Bet - bleedgreen99 - Raiders to make (BG99)/miss(Lucy) the 8. Avatar from last round of regular season 2015 until GF 2016.
Signature Bet - Raider85 - Raiders to get(Lucy)/miss(R85) the wooden spoon. Signature for entire offseason.
Bottle of something to the value of $70 - Matthew Borewood to not see (Lucy)/to see (Piggles) a first grade game in 2015 for the Warriors.
The Name Change Bet - Regarding the three bets above;
I win all three I keep my name.
I win one I become "the Punish"
I lose all I become "Chicken Little"

Well when you put it together like that Worm, it does make sense. Kids are getting unfit these days.

Only change to that ad I would do to make it more realistic, is Michael yelling out to his son whos playing Playstation. What kid plays outside these days, especially when your parents are having a daggy oldies party in the back yard

That NSW Teachers ad is wrong. If a stranger came up to my kid outside a school, tell him that it's his first day also, and then offer to take my kid, Id be calling the cops

That ford fiesta add where the dumb chick wears a running shoe and a high heal and is so happy theirs a shoe compartment... terrible add.... they should use that add for the RTA instead... just slap a giant graphic over it saying "If you're anything like this, we aren't giving you a licence...."

THIS. Good grief it's horrible.

I was saying to Nick the other day, during the NBA playoffs there was an ad on ESPN for NBA tonight featuring Chris Mullen blathering about Mike Brown getting sacked...he was sacked four games into an 82 game season.

What about how ESPN is using that song 'Tom Sawyer' by Rush to promote the NFL now. Everytime I hear it I get the urge to "slap da bass"
