    I am getting SOOOOOOOOO sick of the freakin SMS ads on the tele lately.... love match, baby names, IDIOTIC screen savers and bloody low battery things, to name but a few.... the latest idiotic and mind numbing brain dead things on the TV is that LULU mobile crap!! Besides paying 5 bux just to subscribe, then paying $10 per week for the useless crap... who is stupid enough to subscribe to this garbage!!! they had that stupid LuLu thing on the tele a little while ago... i almost threw a chair at it!!
    I'm basically getting sick of it all!!!

    ahhhhh that feels better :bang: :dance:


    that is all :whistling

    They are on practically every channel, and Pay TV is littered with the crap. They are worse than the dam crazy frog.

    Right on, brother. I feel exactly the same way about the stupid things, and wonder what sort of dopes would be taken in by them. Mostly kids, I guess.

    If people keep subscribing to them, they'll keep showing the ads.


    I hate the alcohol ad's more, why should i have to watch someone throw up in the toilet while i'm eating, i don't even drink.

    They make a fortune because people pay the exorbitant prices believing they's justified, or are tricked into subscribing by thinking they're in for a one off ringtone or application; I think I've read that it's a $500 million industry... no wonder.

    Even the Crazy Frog started off without credit to the person who made the effect.

    first of all.. I HATE them with a passion, secondly, I seriously doubt that anyone would be stupid enough to msg them... some of them in the fine print say that each text costs $5 with a minimum 2 texts per week.. thats at least $40 a month!!

    oh, and even though i hate them ALL the only that really 'grinds my gears' (for all you family guy fans WOO :D) is the one where they say 'whats your IQ'... Im studying to be a psychologist.. So I know, as would the general population, that an IQ score cant be derived in 5 questions... ALSO the average IQ is NOT 120.. its 100. The end.
