There's one with packets of biscuits that turn out to contain live cats. And this is supposed to encourage me to buy them?

Go Compare - It's not 'fantastic' at all, sick of hearing it even if I look away. I'd go to the service allied with the small furry chaps with the Russian accents just out of contempt.

Admiral Insurance - Oh what a (beautiful morning) bloody awful advert.

Sky Q - Although as is mentioned further up the thread it is technically excellent, the fact that one of the 3 or so variants of the same ad are on every 15 minutes or less makes me reach for the remote and hit mute.

I like the taxi "Fantastic", but not the orchestral variation.

Initially yes as it was a refreshing change from 'I need a Balti' but the over repetition of the ad has rather tainted it for me.

"Age cannot wither her, nor custom stale
Her infinite variety: other women cloy
The appetites they feed: but she makes hungry
Where most she satisfies; for vilest things
Become themselves in her"

For some reason I quite liked this ad http://youtu.be/3yJRwH6MAv8 it didn't make me buy their product but certainly a different approach to selling posh tea and not overly repeated on all channels, I wondered who the actress in it was (Lydia Larson) I think we may well see more of her.

Agreed. Nice mix of live and animation style and excellent colours with a reduced palette. And amazing  characterisation in 45s.

Interesting. Thanks.

But I missed the tag thing completely.
