    Probably the worst ads are the shameless cross promoting by sport commentators. Ray Warren waffling on about The Block or Ricky Ponting talking up The Bachelor during the Big Bash.

    If we are giving radio a run, then the Wildman crane ones rate a mention. Seriously who comes up with that shit. I guess it works, I have mates in the industry, but now every time I see a crane I think of that add.

    Are those the ads with the wannabe tough pensioner Danny Trejo in them?

    The face that killed a million TVs.....by their owners.

    Watching the Storm / Broncos replay on the 9Now app and every ad is the Asian dude telling his gay friend about Industry Superfunds. The worst.

    Ancestry or genealogy ads.

    Am I really going to buy this bullshit just because some paid twentysomething actor is telling me how excited she was to discover her great aunt was a flutist in the Cornish women's auxiliary?

    You are correct that it is a con but for the wrong reasons. Compare the market is a company owned by the insurance companies they are comparing

    Look at the parent company of all the insurance companies whose products they spriuk and you will find they are all owned by the same company except one random small insurer who no one would buy from to get round the law intended to prevent exactly this happening

    There are three or four major insurers in Australia. QBE, Suncorp and another own most of the market. AAMI, You-i etc are mere brands of the bigger insurers.

    Allianz is a stand alone company.

    Those "I will always love you" ads are f**king annoying
    I know its for a betting company but I can't be f**ked remembering which one. They're all merkins

    I like the Ford chick. I could watch her all day. But then being an Easts fan, pretentious little bitches must be my thing

    With you on the Ford ads.

    Any midnight closing down rug sale with a raspy voiced quick talking pensioner grinds my gears.

    Any ad which is screened twice during a single ad break. Oversaturation advertising a product makes me more reluctant to purchase that product.

    A funny one from Harvey Norman a few years ago. Advertising their Easter sale which ends on Easter Monday.....

    .....on the following Tuesday night.

    That's another one that fires me up. Who pays for these bloody ads? The members. And what does it get them??
