Today is a hard day for some people.

I can’t take any of that pain away, but for what it’s worth, I am sending you hugs.

Especially you Dave. Especially you.

To everyone else, I say you need to watch this.

I’ve either just given you the best weekend send off or the worst.

Though if you’re the creatives – or client – behind this madness, I’d be hiding in the cupboard until eternity if I were you.

Thanks Rob. It’s not the anniversary here yet but it feels different for me this year. In a good way.

Not sure if the ad or the crossroads reference disturbs me more.

fuck you and your bourgeois tastes. benny the retard and ms diane, the sexy (by birmingham fucking standards) receptionists were the fucking cultural icons of their day.

Where do you find this stuff Rob? It is so terrible yet I keep having to return to watch it. I’m in a dilemma whether it’s because I like it or can’t believe someone made it.

It is appalling, but have a look at their Youtube page. They have a long and proud history of shite commercials. I particularly like the Portuguese one.

Brilliant work. Though I’m not sure if I should thank you or hate you for subjecting me to even more of their nonsense. Ha.
