    My latest peeve.............does anybody else find these adverts......on the edge of being offensive ?
    I am sure there was a series of them
    Thought they were stopped, after public reaction, but perhaps they have toned them down a little.

    Re: The observation and asides thread

    I didn't understand it at all. I've no idea what they were trying to advertise. I rarely see adverts but when I do I'm often puzzled why anyone would pay to have them made like that, much less shown. Most are shockingly uninspired. There was a series by DirectTV, I remember, which were memorable, though I wouldn't have bought their product even so.

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    I disagree, adverts are among some of the best short films you can hope to see on TV.

    Or more often, worst.
    I do like a clever ad, but they are rare, IMHO.

    OK I concede many are trash, some of the others are irritating, but amongst the trashy, irritating, formula ads and programs you get a minor work of art.
    Here is an old Guinness ad
