These adds bug the hell out of me..................how about you



You know what bugs me, it is those adds on telly that are selling things like “Nude” make https://www.nudebynature.com.au/ or “Rapid Loss” https://rapidloss.com.au/, what it is that bugs me is that they say on the adds “for a limited time” or “ending soon”.

How long is a limited time and when is soon when ending soon, they have been saying these things for the last 5 years or something like that. Every time the add comes on I mute it as I am so sick of hearing it. When they say ring in the next 10 minutes and run the add 4 times in an hour it is just beyond a joke. We all know that these things are not ending soon and we know it doesn't matter if we ring in the next 10 minutes or the next 10 hours we will still get the same deal.

I also hate it when they say it is a free trial, because let's be honest nothing is free, they will send you the products and you pay for postage but then after a couple of weeks you have to either return the product or pay for it and the cost is usually in the hundreds of dollars. I feel they should tell you on the add how much it will actually cost you and not lead some people to think it is only going to cost say $20 for postage.

I have heard of people who have in fact thought the cost was only the small amount they have paid for postage and got a nasty shock when they realised that it would end up costing them a couple of hundred dollars.

I am sure I am not the only person who is annoyed by these adds, yeah I know the business are just trying to make money but they are annoying and they have been around for so bloody long.

  1. We hate all adds. they interrupt the shoe. They are louder than the show and they are mostly a load of rubbish. We mostly watch the ABC or record shows with adds and then fast forward the adds. We usually watch Seven News and then we mute the adds too.

  3. The only thing that keeps the volume on for me is the thought of how many idiots out there believe the "limited time" speil. Same with the ads to "buy silver because the price is going to double."

  5. I hate any add that has the sound of a carnival barker. (I don't know if thats what they are called in Australia but it's the guy that tries to get you to come into the sideshow). There just seems to be something sleazy about it. I wouldn't never order something without knowing the long term cost to it.
