Worst Christmas adverts

Just seen this whilst passing the TV in the lounge. Not only does it feature Jedward rapping and dancing, it features, well 6 seconds in and you know she's milking every dimishing second of fame:

 

 

Um, no I don't think I've ever visited a Peacocks ever and guaranteed I won't be either. 

 

So to complement @Wa10's Christmas jumper thread, I challenge the o2 Community to post annoying Christmas adverts, preferably within one viewing.

 

Or if you like a sub-challenge, how many adverts featuring former X-factor contestants can you find appearing in a desparate attempt to remain in the public eye.

Re: Worst Christmas adverts

Without giving anything away @sheepdog you should have warned me 'that person' was in it.

Jedward are bad enough but........Fear

No,  I can't think of anything worse than that one (yet)

Actually, I used to get some reasonably priced clothes from Peacocks....(back in the day before I shopped online for everything) Cat

Re: Worst Christmas adverts

Not seen that one yet and hopefully I can avoid it all the way up to Christmas day. It was bad enough having to suffer her on X Factor. And 'diminishing second of fame', wasn't aware her fame such as it was lasted past X Factor.

Re: Worst Christmas adverts

EVERY Christmas advert that is shown before December 13!!!!!

 

Twelve days before & twelve days after for Christmas was what I was bought up with (as were many others!). No need for Christmas adverts the day after Halloween or Bonfire Night! It is like playing Easter adverts the day after Boxing Day!

My name is Oliver Queen. After five years in hell, I returned home with only one goal: to save my city. But my old approach wasn't enough. I had to become someone else. I had to become something else. I had to become the Green Arrow.
