    Very good. But he can get his head out of there. (Dogs - I don't know...)

    And yeah, I think VA and Sam call it right - 'hawking sofas' does sound hideously phlegmy.

    Celebrate the release of the new Star Wars film by buying a commemorative razor, with a chrome handle. Not only that but the ad had terrible production values.

    Not just multi bladed wet razors but Philips are getting in on the action with electric ones

    That bloody Boots ad works me like a sap and leaves my eyes moist despite myself. Though why the fuck fade out Yazoo’s inspired bleeps and blops for some Big Adele Strings backing Moyet’s incredible voice?

    There's a Geico (insurance etc) commercial with a sloth giving a clue at Pictionary. Love sloths, hate Geico.

    Geico ads are insufferably smug and annoying, utterly convinced of their wit, or that their ongoing "joke" about a gecko (with the weirdest accent ever) is widely loved.

    The tag "That's what they do" is invariably wrong too.

    *The original Gekko was voiced by Kelsey Grammar. (And the whole thing is a rip-off of 'Compare the Meerkat' anyway.)

    The gecko predates the meerkats by a decade, having been introduced as a remedy to the unavailability of live actors during the Screen Actors Guild strike in 1999.

    GEICO spends more on advertising than any other company in the US.

    Even more than Progressive? Not that it's a surprise.

    Twice as much as Progressive, in fact.

    I just filled in a long questionnaire about the John Lewis ad. My thoughts were mostly favourable e.g. I like that it's a mixed-race family, and I like that they don't dwell on expensive presents. The kid is happy with something that looks quite simple and affordable but gives him a sense of wonder.

    I got a few Virgin miles for that (I would have got them whatever my opinion).

    8 News Now, the local CBS affiliate in Vegas, has a short cartoon ident, which I only caught the end of. However it managed to rile me up because it showed a polar bear popping out of an ice hole with a penguin on it's head.

    Things like this make Nevada's kids 49th of 50 in the US for standards of education.

    Casumo's latest is a Katamari Damacy rip off, and not even a good one. FFS.

    Some of the 1973 ads on Nishlord's YouTube channel are very disturbing. Chuck Connors, etc.

    Can you link to that please, Satch, all I can find is the pub documentary (which is pretty interesting).

    I'm seriously loathing the irritating Nationwide advert with the two sisters singing. I almost switched off on my first viewing - it just went on and on...

    They're giving the Halifax ads a run for their money. That takes some doing.

    And I had the misfortune to watch it all the way through during a cinema trailer this week. The saving grace, admittedly in a half empty auditorium, was that not one person could bring themselves to raise even a chuckle. There is hope.

    Richard Ayoade advertising HSBC disappoints me a little. I naively thought he was better than that.

    You and me both. That said, I like to think of it as a dig at Brexit dickheads.

    I thought that too. It's not actually that bad an ad, but felt a bit peeved when HSBC came up at the end of it. There's absolutely no indication what the subject matter has to do with the bank anyway. It's a bit odd.
