This advert annoys me on so many levels.

Firstly, it is set in some glamourous American showroom, where they wouldn't even sell the 308. The last Peugeot sold in the US was the 405 (which was a fine car IMHO).

Secondly, while I am a fan of French cars, the 308 is a boring box that is about as glamourous as a trip to Poundstretchers.

Thirdly, the terminology "fact me", "You give me 12.5k, we give you change" :mad:

Fourthly, he lists fog lights as a desirable unique selling point. Something that the daft bint will then probably leave on as it looks "cool" :mad::mad::mad:

Fifthly "Does it come in any other colour than black?" "We've got noir" :mad::rant::mad::rant: Pretentious idiots.

Frankly, about the only sexy car in the current Peugeot line up is the 407 coupe. And it is only available in diesel now, and not as good looking as the Paninfarina 406 coupe. The 607 is nice and a potential next car, but not sexy.

Anyone who is looking for a sexy car and is impressed with a Peugeot hatchback with foglights because some salesman uses pretentious term I wouldn't even stab with a post-hangover bacon sarnie.

Bloody foglights :mad:

Reminds me of the old poverty spec Escorts etc, the brochure used to list "Heater fan" as a huge feature.

This advert is marketed towards Chav's Clancy, so ofcourse it annoys you. Its not pretentious to Chavs, its Posh and Classy and we all know Chav's like to be Posh and Classy because after all.

That is a good observation James.

It would explain the emphasis on 14 inch alloys and fog lights.

Strangely though, if Chavs like to be posh and classy, then how come they are never:
- Posh
- Classy
?

Clearly you haven't been in Castlecourt lately!:lol:
Yes. I ran into Game, got a Yangtze fill your box 1 litre chinese buffet, and then went home flying round the carpark 5 levels down again. Felt a bit out of place as I had no tattoos or a buggy with screaming kids.

As for the Peugeot advert - just saw it yet again on more4 and noticed they mention floor mats as a selling point. Bloody floor mats!!!!! :mad::rant:

Well from this you probably noticed that the Belfast Chav is quite Posh but with a Twist, instead of a little black number (dress) they have a little black baby and like most Posh people Shawneen loves her costume jewellry plus it gives little Tu-Pac something to play with whilst she is glued to her diamond studded Nokia 3310.

:cheese: great rant, totally agree. I have seen the ad about four times and I just want to harm whoever signed it off for all of the reasons outlined.

Sorry to be crude, but the 'fact me' (arrrrrrrrgggggggggggghhhhhh! 'fact me?' flippin' 'fact me'?!!! take me to the person who came up with that!). Is 'fact me' meant to be a bit suggestive? (work it out... ;) - it is 'drive sexy', afterall)

How a car that looks like a rugby ball can be sold on being 'sexy' - on any level - is beyond me. :)

I think he would give her a fact, in fact I would probably give her a good facting if she asked for it:thumbs:
What, you would show her your guinness book of records?

Or the facts of life?

Frankly she repulses me and the fact she gets all excited at the prospect of a sleazy salesman selling a Peugeot 309 doesn't help matters much.
