Well, I'd have to propose Denis Hickie's Wavin Pipe ad.

Jez, that was fist swallowingly cringeworthy. It is so bad it makes the Cian Healy Berocca ad look ok.

But yes, ginge bearded leprechauns is a bit twee it must be said!

Not even discussing the premise/use of a leprechan/the yankeedoodle obsession with stereotypes

that was by far the worst piece of sound design i have ever heard in my life, somebody deserves to be fired, drawn, and quartered for that

It's so bad it's funny.

Maybe the idea of it is to wind up the Irish support in the hope of creating a bit more interest?

That salute is as cringeworthy as the add is poor. What was 'Toddio' thinking playing in that ad eh Laugh

Biltong that ad is awful. Surely they could have saved a bit of money by fropping the ridculous CGI and just showing some nice clips of the boks playing rugby?

Debaters, that Denis Hickie ad is just confusing. WHat have pipes got to do with rugby? And is that ad using rugby to sell pipes, or using pipes to sell rugby?

Dallym, I'll look up that ad on youtube some stage. The are some great ads and promo's too. I liked RTE's one for the 6 Nations this year.

Lions ad is good, the irish one is such a cringefest, just showed my irish girlfriend the ad and shes raging !! I also found the Ben foden Swing low advert for the six nations rather painfull, just like rugby video games, movies and adverts, there is soo much potential but delivery is somewhat lacking !!!! We haven't quiet reached complete professionalism yet

It was airing when the Rabo was in its infancy and was called the Celtic League, usually as a half time advert. Denis was big back then and the ad was essentially a building supply company advertising to wholesalers/contractors etc via the target audience of rugby. It was shocking then and has not aged well. At all.

It just went through me when he was shouting about getting that extra inch. Took me back to every girlfriend I've ever had.

Pete, what's that ad with rugby training filmed in the South Island. Makes me homesick but is more a film trailer than an ad. Can't for the love of me find it on youtube.

As for that Irish USA ad, reading one Irish lad's comments at the bottom had me cracking up and eased the pain.

What it say?. There is a few idiots there from Ireland saying we are going to hammer these and stuff like that. It's not about who wins its just giving USA some top quality game time.

Recipee for a good rugby/Steinlager add:

Mix;

1.Rolling Stones,
2.All Blacks,
3."Paint it Black".

Cost: Mick jagger gets a Sean Fitzpatrick test jersey, apparently the only ever time the Rolling Stones have granted permission for one of their songs to be used for commercial purposes.
