I’m getting very tired of all the dubbed foreign adverts on TV.
There seem to be more and more instances of ads on TV that are clearly foreign language ads, over-dubbed into English. A small percentage of these have clearly been designed for international use, and cleverly avoid lip sync problems. However the majority are painfully obvious re-dubs, and frankly I find them insulting. If the manufacturers of these products care so little about the British market, then I’m damn sure I don’t care enough to buy their products. If you want my hard earned British Pound, start making ads for this specifically for this country, or start employing agencies that can produce language-agnostic content.
