Ads......the good, the bad and the ugly

So I’d put a bullet in Harvey Norman if I ever met him, plus the chaps mangling English by ‘backing brave’. The lad who sells you ‘all the dayda you can eat…’ would be given a slower death. Bring back ‘Sally O Brien and the way she’d look at you!’. Beans means Heinz alright! I like the grand-dad who is helping the young lad with monsters under his bed.

Radio ads with English accents especially Fake Cockney accents always have the effect of me switching to a different brand if it’s a item that I normally buy:
