Commercial Break: Is THIS the worst advert ever made?
Late last night, very late in fact, as drowsiness kicked in, I saw this new advert for pasta during a break on Channel 4. It stars erstwhile TV and radio ‘personality’ Tim Lovejoy and some beautiful Italian woman who unfortunately can’t act.
The whole thing sickened me and my immediate reaction was that I wanted the sun to explode and engulf Mother Earth with its fiery spatter. After sharing this thought on Twitter, and linking to the ad, the following opinions came back to me…
“Isn't it just the shittest advert ever?”
“Tim Lovejoy makes me want to spunk drawing pins”
“What you do that for?”
“That's so bad it's almost offensive.”
“Saw that on the idiot lantern yesterday. Didn't realise it was Lovejoy, just thought it was some random cock end.”
“I just watched it. I hate you now.”
“I just vomited all over myself. Intentionally. Now I might step on a discarded rake & hit myself in the face. Intentionally.”
“I wouldn't piss up Tim Lovejoy's arse if his kidneys were on fire.”
“Sweet holy shit....”
"Oh great, now I've watched that fecal sod of an advert I want to scoop my eyes out and hurl them at the wall."
The only positive comment I received was…
“She's nice though, innit?”
So there you go Giovanni Rana – there’s a few opinions on your latest advert. Good luck with it yeah?
