Hoses of the Holy in the Parallel Universe

May 23, 2006

stay in your place, little man, and buy this while you're about it

yay it's world cup time again and we all love football, and all big companies love football and they are proud to support our brave boys. yes there are loads of adverts on the telly about football.

i don't mind the one with the blue monkeys (simon our nature correspondent can tell us what they actually are) because that is one crazy song, dude, some sort of sixties stones thing going on, i don't know what it's called and my crippling rsi prevents me from googling it.

i don't like the one voiceovered by that talentless whore jack davenport. i hate the way he roughens up his posh voice because he's talking about football. it's so insulting. the odds of us ever having a revolution in this country are so slim, i reckon it's got to happen. and i'll be happy to pop a cap into davenport's brain when that day arrives.

  • What really gets me though about the football related ads, is the way multinational corporations pretend to be supporting England. Do I really think that Mars Confectionary support England? Or McRonald's? I don't think so, Tim. Do they run these same ads (George's Cross and all) across the pond in the USA? I'd love to see that.

  • The only good thing about this whole football lark is the fact that you can go shopping when the game is on, get a decent car parking space, cruze the long aisles with no hassles and breeze through the checkout in seconds and the drive home is always just as good.

    Long live this crappy english football obsession.

  • Yeah, I've never got the point of the whole leather on willow thing anyway.
