I think the description of the #1 product - a set of miracle knives - says it all:

"The fun starts around 27 seconds in, with a gory scene where a woman stabs a tomato and apparently nicks its artery."

Argh, I hate that T-Mobile ad with the dude who wants to start a freakin' "superband".

1. It's so manufactured
2. Unlimited free texts does not relate to making a superband in any way
3. Get a haircut
4. You play the bass.

Fully agree with Peej. I like the new Tesco one, though.

Argh, that T-Mobile ad's got even worse, now. "I've just announced the tour on Twitter!" Eugh.


Those Ant and Dec Wii ads seem fake, too.

"Way-aye, who's tha best at Table Tennis then"
"Claire, she's brilliant"
"Way-aye then Claire, bring it on then lass"
Queue Claire standing there like a fucking mongtard while Dec does a limp serve past her.

Yes Claire, you rock at Table Tennis. Now fuck off and get some acting classes with the money you got from the advert.

The Redknapps failed. Girls aloud failed. But Ant and Dec are almost succeeding in ensuring that I don't pick up a Wiimote in anger again. Fuck off you talentless gobshites and take your fake post-nuclear families with you.

Oh and Nintendo, if you're going to advertise the Wii try advertising a few good games for it that aren't a couple of years old. Oh that's right, there aren't any...erm, ignore that request.
