Music from that bloody ‘Go Compare’ advert trapped in everyone’s head

The music from that bloody ‘Go Compare’ advert has been trapped in everybody’s head all sodding morning, according to everyone who has ever seen the damn thing.

Viewers began complaining after the ad was screened during a commercial break on GMTV nationwide at 8:03 am this morning, forcing the nation to travel to work with its incessantly irritating tune bouncing around its heads.

The advertisement features a plump, comically-styled tenor who surprises people in everyday situations, before bursting into a loud, sustained song which repeatedly implores the viewer to: “GO COMPARE! GO COMPARE!”.


Experts have claimed that it has “the sort of appeal that makes you want to chew off both your ears, rip out your eyes with your bare hands and scream until you are hoarse.

“Really, it’s the kind of thing the Japanese would use as a last resort, and only after exhaustive water torture,” said Patrick Southall from the Advertising Standards Agency (ASA).

“I can understand why people give money to these people, if only because of the vain hope that they will put an end to their misery and make it all stop.”

Kate Jenkins, 29, from Sidcup said: “I only sat down in front of the TV this morning for five minutes while I had a cup of tea before heading to work.  Suddenly, all I can think of is that bloody song.

“I tried everything I could to make it stop – I even listened to The Lambada for God’s sake – but nothing could get rid of it.  Not even that.”

Some appear to have been more affected than others by the ‘Go Compare’ advert.  Ben Richards, 42, from Huddersfield was found rocking backwards and forwards next to his car shortly after the advert screened.

“Kill me.  Kill me.  Kill me,” he said, burying his head in his hands, and sobbing gently.

Staff at were unavailable for comment, as they are thought to be too busy barricading themselves in their offices in anticipation of a large hate mob descending upon their offices with burning torches, sticks and a variety of other missiles.
