Worst advert ever a new contender - Thommo
Even worse than the RAC rocket boots ads I give you:

The Corsa muppet puppets!

C'MON?

What were they smoking when they came up with that one?

The car is not intended for you, hence nor is the advertising.

I think its quite ammusing, but then I am not a miserable old goat.

The advert was designed to appeal to chavs.

whilst not the worst ever, the advert for the SAAB 9-3 in this month's Car magazine has reverted back to the error mentionend here a while ago, namely quoting the load bay as having x No. of cubic litres. And while I'm at it, why does SAAB (in the U.K. at least) still insist that their cars are influenced by aircraft design?

Oh! fussy, fussy - I'm always reversing backwards and advancing forwards - is there any other way to go?

Sideways can be quite fun sometimes.

Also has the great advantage that no one says: 'I went sideways sideways.'

It's a tortology isn't it? I was driving late last night listening to Alice Cooper and it occurred to my that "your lips are venomous poison" is a tortology.

Anyway, I like the ad in the French restaurant where a chap says "Tell me how your car drives" and a hot chick stands up and gives him a passionate kiss on the lips. I didn't expect it.

Tautology BBD. 'A cacophony of noise' is tautological, a bit like 'an ugly Korean car'...

I have just finished sowing a field of wheat, and have been listening to "Saga FM". Every 10 minutes they have an advert for paying for your own funeral. Why on earth would you want to do that? Let someone else pay and enjoy your money while you are alive, I say.

Oh yes Quizman....!!!!

At the risk of being barred.....

And I am NOT a chav.... I think the "muppet puppets" are funny, and I think the new Corsa is very attractive.

I'll go and shoot myself now.

Here's a question quizman. If you were sowing a filed of wheat, and your mum was at home sewing your shirt-buttons, are you both sewing ? or, are you both sowing ?

Answer: I am sowing and my mother is sewing.

So that's 2 points and the next question?

It seems bizarre to me too, but a lot of elderly people (who haven't much in the way fo funds) get really stressed about not leaving enough to pay for their funeral.
Worst advert ever a new contender - Thommo
Miserable yes, goat maybe, old? Well 45 so not that old.

The ad kind of reminds me of those weird black and white 'cartoons from Poland' that used to come on the telly when I was young. Use to be cartoons yey! Then what the hell is this?

Corsa. Completely and utterly dull. A non-event of a car.

I recall the advert for the old shape Corsa where they count too 100 while various Corsa's hide everywhere.

That was very clever, whereas the new "Puppet" advert is weird to say the least. Good car though!
Worst advert ever a new contender - Dynamic Dave
I hadn't seen the ad until just now. Not on TV, but on an advert site.

What a load of total dross! Vauxhall have rarely been good with ads. Remember Griff Rhys-Jones and Nigel Hawthorne? They were rubbish too, in the ads I mean!
Worst advert ever a new contender - Thommo
I seem to remember Griff in a pair of over-sized Y fronts having an umm... inappropriate reaction to a VX220.

Yeah that really made me want to buy one...

Maybe it's a ploy to get people talking about them. Just a thought.

Wouldn't make me want to buy a Corsa (though not a lot would) but at least it's not Barry Scott shouting at me or Carol Vorderman trying to get me to sign my house over to loan sharks.

I won't. However much money I've got.
Worst advert ever a new contender - stevied
I'd happily pay for Barry Scott's funeral.

I am guessing that the puppet thing is probably some arty old cartoon (as alluded to above) or similar. Remember those old ads for some alcopop (VK I think), where there were werewolves in what looked like a painting, well they were based on some cult filmmaker from the 20s. Advertising people live in a different world to most of us. I have to work with them a lot, they make my head hurt.

"I'd happily pay for Barry Scott's funeral"

Indeed!

WRT Vauxhall's track record with ads, they have at least been successful with this:
