And so the year ends and, over the past 365 days that have just been, I counted a total of 421 different adverts (that aren't promoting films about to arrive in cinemas). Of those, it's a struggle to find the 1.18% I need to make the positive list (so I'll bend the rules slightly to make life easier), but too easy to find the crap ones.
For an advert to be here, I have to have seen it at the cinema. If I didn't then it doesn't count.
Now I should point out that I was planning to have this done slightly earlier but, as I was looking around at the adverts, I got a little side-tracked when I stumbled across a trailer for 'Final Fantasy XV' that I hadn't seen before:
But I obviously got back to completing this! So here is the list:
The Worst:Okay, so these might not necessarily be the worst made adverts. I did see some very cheaply made ones this year with practically no effort put into them. However, the 'worst' here refers to the ones I, personally, really didn't take to. If you've been reading my monthly summaries, then you'll probably already have guessed the ones I've listed.
This one is, thankfully, short but there is still enough time for it to irritate me with it with its waste of a half minute. Wow, you show a car and have growling noises played over it. Clearly I must buy that car.
I just see and hear noise.
Does this test my patience? Si.
4) Westfield Christmas
The TolerableThese aren't necessarily good adverts, just the ones I didn't mind sitting through (because it's tougher to list 5 I liked). It's a mostly rushed list:
Dark Souls 2
Sky Movies Christmas
Another one I actually like. Well, the first part at least, where the Teddy has such a hard, abused life. It amuses me.
