The most annoying advertisement that I have ever seen

The most annoying advertisement that I have ever seen is a video ad of the game Dead by daylight . I was playing a game on my mobile, and came across this ad. The audio and visual nearly gave me a heart attack. I'm not a fan of horror genre. This unexpected ad, especially the audio, is so annoying that I turn off the audio completely on my phone to avoid any future nasty surprises like this.

Derby City and derby hat

Has derby hat anything to do with Derby city? Local people pronounce Derby as [da:rbee] instead of [derby] , once I said that, the Indian call centre man corrected me: "Oh, you are in derby!" This hat was designed for Edward Coke, the younger brother of the 2nd Earl of Leicester. Leicester is very close to Derby, I wonder that the US people just mixed up these two cities.
