The ones with the "Pot Noodle Horn" need more Vikings. Just picture it:

The person with the horn blows it resoundingly.
A quartet of Vikings charge in carrying a palanquin, upon which rests a pyramid of various Pot Noodles.
They charge up to the person who blew the horn, give him/her an appraising stare (complete with "Hrmmm..." noise) and then select a Pot Noodle, handing it to the person.
The Vikings then charge away, perhaps dragging off a random woman or setting the place on fire.

Opinions?

I view it as silly. I don't like ads to start with and stupid ones are just showing the general lack of inteligence on TV these days.

I view all Pot Noodle adverts that I can remember as ranging from stupid to grating, and the stuff they're advertising is rancid.

Yeah, that's the point - if they're going to do such a stupid advert, featuring blokes with bugels down their trousers, they might as well go for full-blown surrealism.
I agree with the dislike of adverts in general, especially as most of them are for "home-owner loans" etc. Those ones are moronic >_< Mind you, all TV is getting bland and craptastic these days.

Did you ever understand what was up with the last batch, the ones that implied Pot Noodles were the prostitutes of the snack food world? Those were weird o_O I have just about lived on Pot Noodles before, but I wouldn't want to ever again.

What the hell is a pot noodle?

Aren't all noodles generally cooked in a pot?
And since when did vikings care about noodles? I thought they were into raping, pillaging, and eating the dead.

I'm so confused. Back to my Quizno's ads.

A pot noodle is instant noodles in a little plastic "pot" you just add boiling water, if you add too much its like water and rank.
I like mine thick. any watery noodle fanciers out there?

So it's one of those ramen in a cup things. Gotcha. That was so much easier.

I prefer to cook my own ramen and add lots of other stuff eg. meat, veg, stock etc. It turns out much better than pot noodles like suijmin etc. Before bagging noodles, get thee to a good vietnamese noodle house - it's close to food heaven! :)

Never liked potnoodle, just tastes plain bad.
And they've always had rubbish ads and this one is no exception.

...I think that covers my views on the subject pretty well. :p

Pot noodles aren't that bad - I look forward to some kind of alternative universe where they are actually edible though. It's the nasty collection of stuff at the bottom that really puts me off!

It's stuff like that gives us Vikings a bad reputation...
Oh yeah, that and the most unfortunate 'Lindesfarne'-incident...

The only adverts worth talking about are amazingly good or funny ones (like the Honda adverts - so brilliantly designed), or ones that are so bad they're funny.

You may hate them, but they've done their job. You've remembered them. In fact, you even started a thread about them. Few other adverts manage that. Your thread's giving Pot Noodle even more publicity.

Artistically you may call them crap, but from the point of view of Pot Noodle they're very good. They've done their job perfectly.

The pot noodle horn was just...*turns off TV*

Your advert might actually be humorous. Better than all the other ones anyway.
