Ben Miller & Ruth Jones for Tesco: "Bedroom". Even by their previous attempts.

Kriss Akabusi for something I can't remember. How are the mighty fallen...

"How much does a good teacher earn? It's probably more than you think" truly makes me want to vomit and hurl petrol bombs at the TV

Further to my previous post I notice 'The Admiral' is back… better but I haven't forgiven them for the last ad yet.

There's a new Chanel advertisement where a woman bowls a nonround object down a lane. It's the visual equivalent of a teacher dragging her nails down a blackboard.

Some of those are a bit... well, let's say "unresolved".

Pretty much every ad! What happened to the genius campaigns like Guinness with Rutger Hauer and the Hoffmeister "kiss off the pink"?

Today there seems to be no level of puerility and lack of creative depth to which campaigns will not plumb. I give you Moneysupermarket, 118 and Gocompare as 3 prime examples.

I quite like Gio Compario... variations on a theme across individual advertisements and the whole thing doesn't appear to take itself too seriously. But I still think that Ade Edmondson should be getting repeat fees for the character of the taxi driver.

And I don't mind 118, ditto David Bedford (wasn't there a court case?). But I think that you are not alone. ;-)

As I have said earlier in this thread I am very proud of the work my son does in CGI advertising.  The latest thing he has worked on has a strong auto link. It certainly surprised me as i had assumed that there was at least some cars used at some point in the process.

Fascinating. Are you saying that's all CGI? And what's the product?
