BT - Swing and Twix - Bike (tv)

Its the sound effects I tell you! Nothing beats the sound of someone getting smacked comically.


After some disappointingly dull BT ads its good to see something both relevant and funny. Although the question of whether they actually do offer more is debatable, the advert is great.
A guy decides to pick the camera with no zoom despite it being the same money as one with zoom. He then takes a picture of his child on a swing but get so close he gets hit twice in great comic fashion.


A nice bow out for Grey with their last Twix ad. A classic scene from a french style romance movie. Two lovers riding on a tandem bike. As they come to a branch the guy ducks and it smacks the woman off.. he then eats the twix. Very well done, it sets the scene of a romantic film and then mocks it fantastically.

This is good stuff after the disappointment of the new Walls sausages ad, the dog is funny but the latest advert is just weak.
