Talked about this in work and it reminded me of certain advertising staples that really get my goat:

Toothpaste ads where there is patently no toothpaste on the brush. You're advertising toothpaste ffs!

"Healthy" yoghurt drinks like Benecol and Yakult where there is patently nothing in the bottle!!

Any chocolate bar where they hold it right at the very end in an attempt to make it look bigger than it actually is!!!

I'm off for a lie down...

Long before he sold out to the BBC and went 'all mobile phone', Jasper Carrott was a brilliant folk singer/comedian. He did his own impersonisation of a Blues song:-

"Well I woke up this afternoooon
Looked out my window, seen your face.
Well I woke up this afternoooon
Looked out my window, seen your face.
Well all the time I knew you,
I never knew, no I never knew, I never ever knew,
You were a window cleaner..........."

Trust me, it was funny at the time. Think you had to be there   :)

Go faster stripes and you've painted the tyres black. Very professional.
I'll buy it if you throw in the furry dice.

It's got different lights and wheels. 

This has less continuity than Life On Mars :)

I may wear the admin hat, but that doesn't always mean I know what I'm doing.
