This morning I read this post by Chantel which was inspired by this post by Jodie.
And they have both inspired me to write this post...
It's no secret that I hate ads.
Any kind of ads really...
TV ads are by far the worst, however.
I'm sure most ads these days are made for idiots...
or perhaps I'm just past the generation they're aimed at.
Yes, I'm saying I am OLD!
Last night as I was sitting knitting in front of the telly (see, told you, I'm a granny already!) these two ads came on that had me shaking my head (in a very granny way).
Have you seen the Optus ad with the talking lizard?
Or is that reserved especially for us country regional TV folk?
I can't find it on You Tube, so it must be.
But it is stupid!
Oh McDonald's, you've really hit an all time low with that one!
Another thing I hate about television advertising is being yelled at!
Imagine being married to that voice!
I bet he yells at everyone, all.the.time.
And how about this ad?
This was a 'what the?' moment...
But this made up for it.
And as Coles is very unpopular with me at the moment because they started the 'Milk Wars'
I grit my teeth every time I see this ad...
We don't like Coles very much around here.
My family have a big red hand that says "Down with Coles" on their farm gate.
I love it!
But as they're doing the sports vouchers for school at the moment, I am back shopping there for a bit.
May as well milk them...pun totally intended!
And finally, I'll leave you with this one...
I have no words.
