Possessor of said massive earrings. And sadly, I didn't need to google that.
BT customers affected by the dog-and-bone merchants' recent unconnecty unpleasantness will no doubt be pleased to know that it could be worse - the company is responsible for the traumatic break-up of at least one previously happy family. According to a breathless press release the Reg has been handed, the ongoing ad campaign …
WTF have you been drinking/smoking/swimming in/all of the previous? Presumably the editor had twice as much of whatever it was and is laying comatose on the floor. I can find no other explanation for the appearance of an article that makes about as much sense as I do after half a bag of wine gums. Has British TV really turned that bad?
Close, but no cigar. He got a nice little scar and a few bad memories out of it, but his little toe was quite safe. And (happily) he is still capable of "acting" well enough to star in these ads (although so is a packet of used coffee grounds or bottle of potato vodka...)
I think it's just BT finally catching up with the changes in the average domestic situation - showin' me age here, but I can remember when 'seperated' parents was the exception and not the rule... :-( :-( :-(
I am sure that Bisto ran "family ads" before Nescrappe. I am deeply concerned Sarah; it's Tuesday and you still seem to have the remnants of Friday's Smarties&Maltesers party plus Saturday's meths hangover swilling around your stomach. Get well soon pettle. TLC is required.
As opposed to fat balding gorillas. Is not BT's home hub actually a router, and how easy is this new one to root?
If I may be so bold as to suggest, it really must have been not so much a "long old day" as a slow old day at The Register for this item to be considered newsworthy :-)
I think the correct phrase would be: 'Pics, or it didn't happen'. It just flows a lot better, in my mind. And sits well with the slightly less SFW, and slightly more rude, 'Tits or GTFO'... (which of course I not advocating in this instance)
/Has been cyber-hanging out in the wrong places...
//What's a SWMBO?
///Oh, I also almost choked over the 'Phil Collins' line. Very nice!
Both have a Trevor Eve connection. The one being married to him and the other having done a brief stint in forensics in "Waking the Dead" between Holly Aird and Tara Fitzgerald having the job as pathologist.
Coincidence? I don't think so..............
I would get out more, but they're watching for me out there.
If you watch the ads, her body language suggests that she getting grumpier and grumpier with each one as all he seems to do is play golf, walk around the shops moaning to himself whilst eyeing up the candy in record stores. Still, I bet he wont be sad to see the back of those 2 annoying brats of hers.
Anyway, perhaps I should get a life so I'm off to book a holiday villa via my generic smartphone device whilst eyeing up the candy in HMV. After that I may visit the driving range.
As a postscript - Kris Marshall did a series called "My life in film". Check it out if you can as it is quite funny.
Did you notice that they cut the clip of him giving the blonde the eye in the record store (because it implied that with his funky new mobile browsing he could nip off for a shag with a random stranger whilst also booking his missus a holiday)? Odd really, seems like an actual benefit that would appeal to people looking for some extra marital action.
Oh god, I've just realised how sad the fact that I noticed AND the fact I've commented on it makes me.
The new advert is all the more ironic considering the HomeHub's preference for disconnecting at random moments for no good reason.
Used to lose connection two or three times a week until I picked up a second-hand Netgear.
Luckily the HomeHub and HubPhone still sell okay on eBay and BT show no signes of offering me new ones. Keep them coming BT, you're subsidising my phonebill something lovely.
Paris, because she knows irony when she sees it (and thinks it means "made of iiron").
..I'm thinking that the whole premise of the Ads was that he was her toy-boy or something (or am I reading too much into this), but checking on IMDB and there is only 3 (three) years between the two actors!!!
So which is sadder, that they're trying to make the nameless lady look older, OR that they're attempting to make a 35 year-old man appear to be boyish!
I think it's the latter, I'm afraid.....
i'm waiting for the advert where they learn that cris/adam has a terminal cancer thats been caused by thier wi-fi home (yeah right, with the broadcast range of a typicaly sized UK mobile Phone mast) hub.
(good luck living with one of those (home-hub) within 20 feet of your bed, while the kids are busy all night downloading bootleg Music, videos, games and Pron from the P2P networks)
and the follow on where they get told by the hospital to turn off all their mobile communications toys cos it will mess up the life support that he's plugged into..
and her son walks in whilst on the phone and he (chris/adam) pegs it... :)
half a dozen more people to tell us that the woman in the BT advert is called Esther Hall and this comment thread attains the requisite level of farce.
Those BT adverts always made me feel a bit uneasy, the woman clearly originally being friends with the mother of her manchild partner before 'getting together' behind some bushes at a family barbecue, and enduring the whispered disapproval of all and sundry when they announced their union.
um. thats what i got from it at least.
...so having died we cut to a touching scene in the church with mourners huddled around a glowing coffin and all of a sudden a mobile phone bleeps in the background and we discover one of their kids watching a pop video streamed from their house whilst the wife's new toyboy lurks around outside sending dodgy texts inside.
... and two days later, mobile snaps of the stiff appear on the blog page of the "homely yet vaguely attractive" eldest daughter in her ongoing attempt to narrate and document her sad life as she considers doing a course in "hair science" by distance learning over the internet.
Meanwhile; her brother is in the next room trying to position a webcam so it captures that fateful day when he finally loses his virginity.
1. What the hell are BT on about?
2. Why do these tards need the privacy of their garden / balcony to TYPE? (Who else is in the bloke's flat?)
3. Why not use another service from BT, namely pick up the frickin' phone?
4. Does BT Internet really serve pop-ups to say that you're on-line (can't imagine they do, becasue that would be as irritating as hell)?
5. Have BT changed the colour to try to show that their new (black) kit is different to the security-riddled (white) kit they used to punt?
