    These have been great during the TdF coverage - just how bad can they get? Favourite so far is one for the Lebanon, where someone in an office is in some kind of tetanus rictus, or perhaps having an ice-cold enema, while supposedly blissfully remembering his holiday there.

    I was always fond of the Romanian tourist board one with the tagline

    "Enjoy the Carpathian garden"

    Only matched by the bizarre Sidi advert - why are they cooking with shoe parts!

    The budget for some of these adverts must be about £25.

    Yes about the only good one is the Specialized 'Chase' advert and the Skoda one which appears every so often.

    I think the budget for the Korea one was a lot less than £25. Apparently, the main reason to go there is because it's 'dynamic'.

    As for the Sidi one, well, anyone running their nose over my cycling shoes on a serving dish would lose consciousness in seconds.

    Ah well at least we can all be inspired to aspire to go somewhere in the middle east like Qatar or wherever it is, whilst taking Turkish Airlines!

    Erm... Turkish are a pretty good airline now.

    It's Sudan Airways, Air Uganda and Syrian Arab Airlines you want to be avoiding.

    Preferably with an exaggerated, overly sincere, American accent.

    Just had a look for a suicidal smiley. Can't find one.
