Annoying TV advert

Post by Askit on Fri Aug 24, 2018 1:44 am

Am I the only person who wants to tell the guy in the "over 50s plan" advert where to stick his Parsnips rolleyes I would happily tell all the other, similarly focussed, advertisers to get some Parsnips and do the same  Whistle1

Is that the one where they're too tight to use Parky any more but still mention him?
Wonder if he still gets a fee for use of his name?

Totally patronising.

Not only that but the returns on them are abysmal.

How do you make an annoying advert more irritating?

You employ Alan Titchmarch and get him to pretend he’s not loaded.......genius  shrugg

Adverts primarily aimed at the older generation are usually extremely patronising. Haven't the makers cottoned on that 60 is the new 40, 70 the new 50 etc...
Now I just need to convince my creaking joints that fact as I attempt to fling my leg over my Buell..

I'd not viewed that Paul, I'll be going to the show because my club, Moto Guzzi Club GB will be having a stand there. I usually look around the auction but the bikes always seem to go for much more than I'm prepared to pay.
However, I like the look of the DOT Scrambler, I had one of those when I was just 16..
