AdTurds Doesn’t Stink

Collecting the most ill-conceived, tasteless, turgid, nonsensical and just genuinely irritating TV adverts together in one place might not seem like a fun idea . . . but it is. is a delicious Charlie Brooker-esque deconstruction of bad adverts and although the targets are often glaring obvious, there’s enough humorous editorial set-up to give you more laughs than the subject matter ever originally intended.

It’s not all deprecation however; AdTurds also showcases advertising gems, just as a reminder that for every crappy Halifax Jingle ad there’s always a quirky Citroen C5 (unmistakably German) out there to balance things out.

So why not kill a few minutes and refresh your creative perspective (with a few laughs thrown in for good measure) at AdTurds?
