I can't stand that ad anymore!

I usually listen to Radio 1 in the morning while I'm getting ready. And then I usually tune in on my way to work. And lately, they've been playing this ad, and it's come to the point where the ad makes me feel aggravated...and I just feel like pulling my hair out!

The ad is for some Toyota/Al Futtaim motors car, and not only is the ad annoying as hell, it plays a million times in that one hour it takes me to get ready and drive to work in the morning. It's like they decided to spend all the advertising and media budget on that one single ad!

I'm sure you've heard it's the one where it's a drill sargeant in the army, screaming his lungs out "ATTEEEENTION!....GET YOUR TOYOTA WHATEVER NOW!".

KILL ME NOW! I can't stand that ad, and if I hear it one more time, I'm seriously considering writing to Al Futtaim Motors to strongly suggest they change their ad agency or media agency! Or come up with a new ad already!

It’s very annoying in the morning, and more annoying to be obligated to hear something I don’t like to hear it more than once.

It is all over the radio and I can't wait for this month to be over for it to finish.

and you know what's even more annoying?? Is that there's an exact version of the ad in ARABIC! So even if you're a bilingual, they'll still find ways to annoy you. I even bet they have an Indian version of it!!

Strong Opinions on Al Futtaim's ad!

Can you get an audio file of it so we can post it on AdBlogArabia, complete of course with your 'candid opinion'?

That should ruffle a few feathers in the ad community.

Hey Zeid...Unfortunately no audio file...I wouldn't know how to get it! I truly wish you could post it on your website and ruffle a few feathers!
