Car Adverts

Post  Grainy on Wed Jan 30, 2008 9:54 am

Does anybody actually understand these? Who was the first person to think, "I know, let's make an advert that have nothing to do with the product" And why did it start a precedent for ALL other car adverts?

I have to admit, the last one is pretty funny.

Oh the pointlessness of it all...

Post  Paulio on Wed Jan 30, 2008 11:09 am

I've nearly posted this topic a few times myself. Can't stand car adverts I can feel my body becoming aggravated when they come on. Particularly the C'mon one. It actually hurts me to hear that said in that voice and even reading it makes me flinch. The only exception to this rule I can think of is possibly the bakery car (though that makes me insanely hungry and in dire need of comfort food) and the car parts domino effect one. However these are still incredibly stupid from a business point of view since it doesn't let you know anything about the product. That balloon one was stupid as well so pointless. Can I tell you what car or brand it was now? No I can't. Even if I cared I wouldn't be able to tell you. Then for some unknown reason they decided to make a hoax version with some students????

Arghhh and that one where the car was a dog pissed me off too. Why would you want a car that doesn't do what you tell it?! Because that was what I took away from that ad.

While we're on the subject fucking insurance adverts and beer adverts. Those carling ones. Does anybody understand them? (Though I didn't mind the stella artois (I think) one with the iced over lake.)

I've just realised what the worst ones are. When your sat eating and one of those adverts comes on with women pretending to have a normal conversation about how they get hard stools. But that isn't the worst bit the worst bit is the slogan for one of them, "Pass it on" (I demand to know why there isn't an emoticon which is throwing up.)

I was thinking the exact same thing about car adverts the other day. I wonder where the line is drawn between creative advertising and false advertising, an actual punishable offence. I mean, we, moderatedly intelligent (ahem...) human beings, know that, say, a car can't turn into a robot, but there must be some people that could possibly be misled by, if not that particular advert, some other ones.

The one thing I will say in defence of car adverts though, is that I think generally they're designed simply to highlight the fact that there's a new car on the market, rather than tell you anything about it. Sort of a "Hi, it's Honda here. We've made a new car - look!" After, anyone who chooses to buy a car on its advert alone has far too much money.

Mobile phone network adverts particularly repulse me - the way they try to suggest whatever network we choose will be a lifechanging decision, one a magnamonious importance to us and make all our family and friends' lives infinitely better. It's sickening, not to mention naff. Anyone whose life is defined by their network, doesn't have one.

I quite like the Orange and T-mobile adverts, they're quite nice.....one phone related advert that I do hate, is the Phones 4 U ones......ARGH they grind my gears, what the hell are they all about anyway, it's just some stupid American prick on a day out with patients from the local mental hospital, doing silly hand movements.

I saw one of the most stupid advertisements ever today. You know those adverts that try to entice you to visit Florida or to Ireland? (you probably see where I'm going) Well today I was enticed to go visit England! I find it hard to express what a stupid idea this advert is.

I think the best of these is the one to go to California.

It has Arnie at the end!

I can't find the one from TV but this is just as great!

I especially enjoy the part:

"We have one rule... there are no rules"

YES, ultimate cheese!

PS. in dire need of a chees emoticon!

Argh, its messing with my head, the fact that there are no rules is a rule, it's a rule stopping you from creating a rule.

Plus if there are no rules in California, would murder be an acceptance?

Hell yeah, I wanna go to Calli!

Having one rule that isn't a rule is possibly the smartest thing Arnie could have done. Making it so there are no rules means he now has created for himself the easiest job imaginable.

Does anyone else remember this enjoyable clip?

Yes, I've always felt we need an emoticon to graphically illustrate the in-depth discussions we have on this forum about the intricacies of chess.

Ahem

I did not write "chess", I wrote "chees", which for all you know, could be a "hip and happening" way to write "cheese"

Razz

Now Paul will get angry and start ranting about "spelling things properly"

Has anyone here seen the halfords ads on that Dave channel?

If so does anyone else find the mp3 player one infuriating?

It goes something like this:

Halfords Man: There we go your mp3 player thingy is all set to go now thanks to my superb halfords skills.

(some sort of tuneless rock music plays on her mp3 player)

Woman: Oh..... its not all like that.... honest!

Halfords Man: Yeah...... right.......... (said in a sarcastic tone)

How dare the halfords man criticize someone's music taste!
And how dare halfords suggest you should be embarrassed by your taste in music.
