3 Annoying Catchphrases

I used to watch this ad when I was a kid about a bulldog who had a frequent habit of saying 'Oh Yes'. Oh Yes, there's a corpse on the floor. Oh Yes, kids should drink alcohol. I don't remember what the ad was about but the dog was really annoying. - TwilightKitsune

All the animation is ugly.Most of them look like cardboard cutouts. - DapperPickle

5 Making the Advert Unnecessarily Dark

Oh,you want to make an advert against drunk driving? That's completely fine but you didn't really have to have kids in the vehicle plus kill them off in a brutal way.To add insult to injury they make it all happy at the start but then the father opens a beer in a pit stop then they all die... - DapperPickle
