    Default Commercials you love & commercials you hate!

    I know that this has been done before, but don't know how to find it.. so here's a new one.. cos I love these threads And have updates on mine..

    Hate: The "Rhonda, Rhonda is mine" the lady having her feet massaged on a beach.. "Beautiful driver, beautiful brake foot".. Argh, just want to put my fist through the TV screen at that one. Aami Insurance, I think it's for.
    Oh, and I hate the Alliance Insurance.. where everyone is saying "Ahhhhhh-liance:..
    My newest most hated is for the Commonwealth bank, with Toni Colette. Doesn't she have enough millions? And that lame poem she's spewing out about changing "Can't" to "Can" by just "changing a simple letter".
    And finally, (and this I put down to my pregnancy hormones) the Medibank ad that show the woman giving birth and having her baby placed on her chest.. it chokes me up every single time! I'm crying over an ad!! Lol...
    oh yeah, and one I find very odd... the KFC one, where the KFC emloyees are taken to the farm to see exactly how the chickens are farmed (and slaughtered).. one scene shows them laughing and chasing the chickens around the verandah of the farmhouse, the next, someone is carrying out a platter of freshly "made" KFC chicken..and they all dig in. Maybe it's just me, but I find this a little off putting TBH..

    i also hate the singing coles ads - the freshness ads, they really annoy me

    and i hate all the life insurance ads...theres way to many of them
    Yes, the poem itself is nice.. the first time we saw it, DH and I were thinking the same thing, that it was an add for a charity or something, and shared a groan at the end when the Commonwealth Bank logo pops up!

    Budget....HATE that ad
    KFC...fake made up words


    The one AD I loved as a kid the Dougie ads for pizza hut.
    I am not a fan of many but I did like the Coates hire ad with the chubby guy rubbing himself all over the Maloo ute.

    I don't get the ad for the sunbeam mixer. It's on heaps when master chef is on. The one where the guy is mixing the cake and he hits pause because his girlfriend wants him and then he returns and hits go on the machine again. If the cake mixture has a timer on it then why pause it just let it go and it will be done when he gets back.surely that would show how much more useful the machine is. And why is it so special because it has pause, you could just press off and on.

    I always loved the ads where it showed the kids hearing for the first time with their cochlear implants - I think it was a Telecom ad. Always used to make me cry!

    I love the old Tooheys ad.

    'Scooner of new mate'
    'Sorry no dogs allowed'
    'Its a guide dog mate'
    'Guide dog! Guide dogs are either German Shepherds or Labradors'
    'What have they given me!?!?!'

    'Give that man a New!'

    Always loved it. Gosh it's ancient now.
