These are the ad songs that have pissed me off the most over the years. I’m not including songs written specifically for the ad (eg. Go Compare).
Click at your peril and prepare to cover your lugs:
T-Mobile ‘Flext’ – ‘Just Another Diamond Day’
Just a blade of graaahhhhhsssss
Windows 8 – ‘Everything At Once’
Hnrrgh the dance moves are so twee, I hate youuu
O2 – ‘Little Boxes’
Just what the buggering hell is ‘ticky tacky’? Don’t answer that.
Apple – ‘1 2 3 4’
Another one where the twinkly-dinklyness gives me a rage aneurysm
Orange – ‘This Side of the Blue’
You might not recognise this from the title, but believe me, you’ll remember it. The pseudo-baby voice makes me want to cauliflower my own ears.
And a bit of respite
It took me years to track down this ad, because it came out waaaay before the internet. The ad itself is weird as hell, but what a beautiful piece of music (specially adapted from a Bjork song):
Ahhhh. I feel better.
OK, your turn: post your suggestions in the comments. I hate you already.
