The worst one in Victoria is the one for Chris and maries plant farm, the one with the knob in the Tutu.

Firstly, CSV love the avatar mate

The ad that shits me the most is the new Astra (or is it Vectra) ad. The stupid things they say in it like:

"Have the brakes disperse the braking evenly between all 4 wheels" - all cars run 60/40 split because a car places most of it's weight over the front wheels when braking

"The indicators get louder as you accelerate" - why are you accelerating around a corner? even the small times you do, the steering wheel turns your indicators off after you have turned the wheel pasted a point.

"Have the car correct itself if it detects itself going of course" - A car isn't designed to know where it's going, so how does it know it's going of course?

And the last one, "why don't all 4 wheels talk to each other?" - can they have a conversation? and what point would this do to the overall running of a car?

The real stupid thing is, this ad will probably sell cars because people will believe this shite.

Yep, the Dodo one, only seen it during the V8s! Argh, gotta put up with that crap!

The Wombat Gully ones, at least when it was Chris and Bill we didn't have her annoying voice.

The Aussie Homes Loans ones, god. At Auuuuussie, we'll save you!

Yeah the Dodo, the plant farm one, lleyton hewitt one (hate that guy with a passion). Also that new bloody tampon one with the girl twisting around and stuff. I mean in one ad break it is shown 3 fcuking times .

Truly the deepest kiss one can feel, and the one most sought after, is the one you will not survive....

Yep that one definitely... and any poxy stupidly redubbed Seppo ones. The Hiclone ad pisses me off maximus as well.

Let's not forget the latest Corolla ad, where the two office dickheads are standing there looking at it from their window, referring to it as a "European sports car"!!! FFS!!!! SOMEBODY PUT A BULLET IN THEM!!!

What about the Alfa Romeo add, where the quads or triplets or friends or what ever. One is driving the Alpha and getting all real excited, and the others are getting just as excited, the one in the boardroom, and then one in the museum, and the one in the restuarant.

HOW BLOODY ANNOYING IS THAT ONE.
