Bad taste 118 advert?

12
Found 18th Mar 2011
Is is just me who not only thinks that the 118118 adverts are not only irritating, but have now pushed the boundries of bad taste and timing?
2 morons in 70's style porn shorts adorned with fishy snacks on a sushi belt, asking for help with finding a good sushi bart, culminating in a token Japanese man gurning.
To me, airing this advert right now, is a hiss take?

agreed!!! everytime this advert is on i just switch the channel. Its the most stupidest ad ever.
Some adverts are a disgrace, I threw up yesterday when watching the Halifax add “Ice Ice baby”. There should be a certain standard that advertisements have to reach before they are allowed to be aired, personally I would axe 75% of them.

There is no doubt some adverts are purposely made to be irritating and to be controversial. Is it so hard to make a decent add?
And here it is :

We are discussing annoying adds but of course this is how they work, annoying watchers with terrible TV in an attempt to make the advert stick in our minds, it may work in that respect, but for me any adverts that I find annoying I purposely go out of my way to never buy their product. Anyone that like the above add needs help.

I know I am coming across here as a grumpy old man (30 now ) but seriously annoying ad’s just drive me up the wall, and even though we all have sky + by now and skip adds mostly for some strange reason we find ourselves still watching them? We will watch the annoying ones to see how annoying they are lol.

Hangovers, got me on a bad morning, if I was on room 101, I would dump annoying adds in.

The fact you are posting about it proves it works
I've never used a directory enquiry service in my life but if I had to that would probably be the only number I could remember for one, guess that's what they want.

Meh, not really. I would rather eat my own eyeball with a knife and fork, than use 118118 to get a phone number.

But you've discussed it on an internet forum, giving them more advertising, so it has.
The people producing the adds at 118 are abusing their position and using some of the adds to send messages to people they are attacking. One off the adds indecates they are snooping around a lunatics house, what's that make them and who does that anyway? Adds for scumbag hackers and bugalers maybe. Another add; who is behind the murder of a thugs victim and then walks off with the girl. Adds for vindictive delusional little slimbeballs? They are the one who are really sick and it should be looked into!!!!!!!
Does anyone actually use any of the 118118 directory services?
118 ad is nothing.. compared with this one!!! I was shocked when they showed it on tele!! How did they get away with it?!!?
