In which our intrepid hero vents at one of his miniature pet niggles.

I really hate insurance ads. Whoever puts them together for the insurance companies should stop and take a look at the crap that they’re putting on prime-time TV.

Allianz have fake news-item ads, presented by some guy who just comes across as greasy and totally lacking in charisma. And the woman on the Australian Pensioners’ Insurance Agency ads is simply offensive. Neither of these would persuade me to get insurance. In fact, they do a damn good job dissuading me.

If you’re going to try to get my hard-earned cash, you could at least make a decent pitch.

This is my last post for the year. I want to wish those of you who’ve read this far a very happy and prosperous New Year. See you in 2006!
