Hello, I’m doing a newsletter now

The weekly AdTurds newsletter will feature the best – but mainly worst – adverts around, some classics and various thoughts on medialand.

The best of my writing from the site will get a kick up the backside and also make appearances.

We’ll take a look at your favoruite, hafl-remembered vintage ads too.

I’ll also be joined by guests who can tell me what on earth they were thinking at the time.

Here’s what people used to say about my old site:

“likely to offend”
Plain Language Commission

“Embittered… professionally disgruntled website…”
TV Tropes

“industry blog”
Janet Street-Porter

Thanks for reading - why not subscribe too, so you can be annoyed on a weekly basis?

You can hit this button here, see? Yeah, that one. Just stick in your email address.

Stay up-to-date

You won’t have to worry about missing anything. Every new edition of the newsletter (out every Friday, and frankly who cares if youre skiving off on a Friday afternoon?) goes directly to your inbox.

It’s free

I won’t charge you to read the newsletter, though I might add extra paid-for ones in the future. We’ll see how it goes, eh?

It rhymes with AdWords. Adverts that are shit. Badverts.


Adverts that are shit, advertising fails and howling jeremiads from medialand. Plus the odd corker. Weekly, for now.
