Thanks for all the bananas
Don't get me started on f***ing commercial breaks. Been exposed to a bit of commercial telly of late and it'd seem with diminishing ad revenues most breaks are filled with station promos that EMPHASISE. EVERY. MUNDANE. MOMENT. FOR. MAXIMUM. DRAMATIC. VALUE. With someone periodically standing on an orchestral sample for extra significance. Netflix has started doing it too.

Can't hack it. It's like commercial telly thinks its audiences have the attention span of a puppy and need constant LOUD. NOISES. to illicit any kind of response.
The builders asked me three times if they were ok to cut through the TV aerial to mount the shade sail about 5 years ago. I haven't watched commercial TV since.

Over the weekend getaway, we put the TV on for the children while we had some wine. Fuck me, after years of watching Netflix etc, ads are grating and invasive!


Call me Ken, whoreken
At least on TV you could mute them and go and take a leak or get a cuppa - who the hell listens to commercial radio and still sits through the ads....?

It's just good story telling @Asininedrivel
Is it Mr Poodle? IS. IT.
I just saw an ad break where EVERY ad was for a sports betting company.
What happened to you Shaq? You used to be cool. I had a basketball with your name on it and everything...

Mark Wahlberg sold his soul to the shit movie gods a millennia ago, no loss there to see him riding a CGI rocket but Shaq nooooo

I just saw an ad break where EVERY ad was for a sports betting company. Ladbrokes then Neds then Sportsbet then TAB then Bet365 then Ladbrokes again for good measure.

Classy.... :rolleyes:
Some of those ads are actually funny, and all are dreadful. Mates museum, the first time I saw it I had no idea what it was about and was chuckling up until the punchline.
