Boom!

"We need to de-Scrooge this guy."

Has there ever been a more malignant series of television advertisements than those spawned by Meteor? This one may not inspire the bile of our friend with the beard from last year, but crikey. Jesus swept.

How come I can never find a clocktower when I need one?

Enough of that kind of thing, though, this is no time for rancour. This is the good time, the time for ridiculous woolly hats in the beerlight and lowering liquor in appropriate places.

My fridgeful of fine cheeses runneth over, a weekend off to be endorsed with my unique brand of gusto and Jameson.

It pleases me, therefore, that I can still muster some form of disdain borne of Harvey Norman slogans and people I wouldn't have in the house, those whose sole purpose in life is the whoring out of mobile phone networking with 12% national coverage.

It pleases me because it puts the good stuff in greater focus still.

Aye, Meteor have got some stck of cunts writing ads for them, alright.

With regards to whiskey, all I can say is Redbreast 12 year old. Celtic whiskey shop on Dawson Street, do it. Honestly, best 36.99 you'll ever spend.

'Stack' was what that word should have been. 'Stock of cunts' and 'stick of cunts' would probably also have worked.

A rare case of interchangeable vowelhood.

Redbreast 12-year-old. I'll save that one to the drafts as a reminder.

Andrew has just sorted out part of the Bear's Christmas present for me there. Nice one.

I too dislike the new Meteor ad. The Santa that appears in it looks particularly dodgy.

I can admit to having gotten drunk on the 15-year-old and far more expensive Red Breast. I doubt I'd have noticed any difference en route to oblivion.

And I've just remembered a Christmas present that I need to get, though it isn't related to whiskey. On the Santa thing, I can't relate, I cover my eyes when it comes on.

JW - You're new to these parts, welcome. I know a JW. Likes a porter.

The two blokes in the ad make me want to kill. Andrew is right about the people who write Meteor ads. An agency called Chemistry is behind them all.

Radge said...

Not sure you should have told me that - aiding and abetting...

In a wonderfully free and relaxed exhalation of good cheer I can honestly say that I haven't seen it. It's like a Christmas present to myself.

Radge said...

Conan - As Christmas presents to one's self go, that's a cracker. Pun probably intended.
