So there's a radio ad at the moment that I don't exactly hate but rather I'm more sort of weirded out by.

I think it's for select quote, maybe, anyway it has some presenter bloke who introduces the thing and a representative from the company in question. They then have a conversation about the services offered by the company. Only they have near identical voices, so it sounds like two different personalities of the same individual are having a chin wag. It's just bizarre.

I mean if one is going to do an ad for a non visual medium one really needs to differentiate the participants in the ad.

What complete and utter moron thought that the handful of people who will actually willingly consume chicken McNuggets would also sit still for being labelled "Nugnutts."  Everyone has standards, man...

Unless they go about with horribly unconvincing English accents.

What about the one where the young guy comes down and the grandma has the chicken biscuit from McDonalds and he thinks she made it till he see's the bag. First off he comes in and she takes off an apron and serves him it on a plate. Then she packs up to go. Only then when he sees the bag does he realize she didn't make it.

Ok so let me get this straight. She get's up early, goes out buys a crappy breakfast sandwich, drives home, unwraps it puts it on a plate,Puts on an apron, teenage/twenty-ish grandson comes in, she serves it, removes the arpon, and packs up to leave.. Who the hell picks up their McD's takes it home, puts it on a plate, then gets up and leaves?

We have ads that play over the P.A. at Kmart with similarly indistinguishible actresses.  And I'm really giving them the benefit of the doubt by assuming it's actually two separate actresses, and not one actress doing a terrible job of sounding like two different people.  At least the Mr. Bluelight ads haven't made me have a psychotic episode this year yet.

You know those radio commercials where two people with annoying voices yammer back and forth?

I invented those. :highfive:
