OK this is really pretty funny




Oh how I LOLed and ROFLed when I first saw it.

And perhaps I missed the initial Glass & a Half Productions logo at the beginning (not sure if this was just on YouTube version) but when the logo came up at the end, I groaned.

And perhaps I'm JUST cynical, but I was pissed off when I found out this was Cadbury's. It's visually arresting and the tune is amazing. But when I found out it was the next in the gorilla/airport trucks trilogy, I couldn't help be a little disappointed.

It feels like a bribe.

You're saying 'here, look at this funny clip'. Oh look and here's our logo for a product which has fuck all to do with either comedy or electro. CLANG!

Even if you ignore the whole 'Is it going to make people buy Cadbury's chocolate?' question (which, by the way, is supposed to be the point of advertising, unless you're trying to tell me that the biggest name in chocoloate in the country needs awareness of its brand raised. What's the news here?), at least Mother had the decency/manners/good sense to keep their Eurostar logo super tiny in all the Somers Town posters.

This is entertainment. It's a clip. Does it sell? No. It puts me right off my Cadbury's, I tell thee.

And don't get me started on T-Mobile's Liverpool Street. Or do; I'd enjoy the conversation.

Next time you watch it, listen again right at the end for the muted reaction a spectacle as big as that got. Ungrateful bloody commuters.

Terry Christian's mum The Re-Up

Remember a few days ago when I revealed that Jimmy Saville was Terry Christian's mum? Ridiculous. Right?

Wrong. I mean... right.

Here is Terry Christian's REAL mum:



And if you don't believe me, think of the cat's name.

See?

Thanks to my wife Thea for pointing this one out.

Welcome to a parallel place



Where websites are incredible.

Nice use of social media, too. Is its use in marketing coming of age? I guess what I mean to say is that finally I am seeing 'some nice stuff using facebook'.

And did you watch the CNN live feed of the inauguration? The Book of Face loaded automatically on the right hand side, so you'd update that you were watching history - and could see friends doing the same. The Internet equivalent of advertising during the Superbowl. Sorry, it's much bigger than that.

Nice, nice, nice!

Terry Christian's mum

Yesterday, I identified Terry Christian's dad. And I promised today I'd reveal the Manc mouth's mum. Well here she is:



Seriously.

I know what you're thinking - 'what a load of bollocks!'

No but think about it. Look at the mouth, the manner, the body language.

I know. It's hard to imagine the Godfather of Hip Hop is Terry Christian's mum. But it's true.

True.
