What I really hate is the deep and meaningful ads for soulless banks or insurance companies that are actually good - except they're banks and insurance companies. Like Westpac give a **** about anything other than the bottom line

That Pointsbet ad with Allen Iverson is starting to annoy me. The music is so loud, which is annoying when you have the volume up fairly loud for the footy.

The McCafe coffee at with the guy getting coffee when it is dark, not drinking it and giving it to his partner after arriving- with the sun well and truly up.

Memo Macca - unless you cups gave special powers, the coffee would have been cold well and truly by the time you got home.

I don't know why but randomly dubbing over American ads with Australian accents tickles my hate bone.


In the one they show here Anna Kendrick gets to keep her voice but the black chick has an awkward sounding obviously dubbed over Aussie accent...for some reason. WHY

I've never understood why they do this. Do ad agencies think (or even have evidence) that the public won't buy a product if the ad has Americans in it?

They would. Customers value local, an American accent makes the product seem more foreign.

But they do it with obviously foreign products too.

For example, that Apple iPhone ad from last year where the geeky girl that looks like Barb from Stranger Things says "what's a phone?" was dubbed, and nobody would realistically think an iPhone is Australian - it's either American or Taiwanese/Chinese

Hash tag save the dribble - fu** off. Not funny in the slightest, and just shit house, like that crap show bounce and up the guts.

I also can't stand that Leah Remeni Scientology commercial '' yeah, now that you asked ''


You're not tough. You're not cool. You're not funny.
