I’m fully aware that in advertising, marketing companies like to big-up their product and do the hard sell, but is it just me that finds the following TV ad a tad too much to bear?
Long term readers may remember my many past posts regaling the life and high times of my journey into Leeds on the 508 (the number of the beast). And I have to say that even through rose-tinted retrospect(acles) I have no memory of my commute being anything like this.
My fellow passengers and I joining hands to skip gaily down The Headrow to hop aboard the already packed; dirt blackened windowed; piss stinking, miserable driver operated, Halifax bus.
Like the mascara & moisturising cream adverts, I think there should be some kind of disclaimer at the foot of the ad.
E.G. “The occupants of these buses have been digitally enhanced in post-production“
Or “The passengers on this bus have been chemically enhanced with Methamphetemine and White Lightening”
Oy! First Bus – you’re fooling nobody!
Am off to Whitby for the weekend tomorrow with pals. and NO! IT BLOODY WELL ISN’T THE GOTH WEEKEND!
PS: and No! I am not going on the bus…
