April Fools Ad Round Up

April Fools Day nearly passed us by this year…until morning TV news “gaffes” reminded us that here it was again, with a stream of hilarious mishaps (say no more). Having been reminded, we were on the look out all day for other “April Fools Day” heists and here are a few from the advertising world…

Marmite – “Opened up” a pre-hated marmite store on Ebay, selling peoples discarded Marmite jars after hating the taste.

Bovril –  Joining forces with Sheffield FC allowing fans access to their own Bovril drinks on – tap dispenser which fans can enjoy at every match

Pot Noodle & Papa Johns – have together created a noodle pizza the “Pot Pizza” in 3 flavours such as Bombay Bad Boy following on from their creation the “Pot Noodle Sandwich”

Walkers Crisps – create bread-sized sandwich crisps created in response to Walkers research that revealed nearly 98%  agreed crisps make sandwiches better

Perhaps one of our favourites (throw-back drink early 1990’s) Malibu, launched its super-premium Malibu XO which has been aged inside coconuts for 12 years. Only 100 of the XO blend are available, and the spirit comes in a black bottle, nestled in a gold collector’s box, accompanied by a certificate of ownership.

The April Fools that made us chuckle were Aldi’s budget airline and Professor Green’s Shitamins ….we’ll leave our round-up there!

We can’t believe it’s that time of year again, but the 2019 Christmas adverts have started. Join us as we look at some of our favourites so far…


One of the first adverts to appear on our screens this year, was Very’s. We think it’s a great start to the Christmas advert season!

The singing boxes are back! This year to the tune of Solomon Burke’s classic track, Everybody Needs Somebody to Love.


Smirnoff have kicked off the party season with their cheeky advert featuring Laverne Cox, here’s to not-so-Silent Nights!



It doesn’t get more festive than Mariah Carey, who finds herself in a tussle for the last bag of Walkers in this ad.


Will Kevin the Carrot defeat the Leafy Blinders?



Featuring the choir from Ysgol Gynradd Gymraeg Llwyncelyn in Porth, Rhondda, Paddy McGuinness and Emma Willis, this advert features some of M&S’ festive offerings.


This is giving us Stormzy-vibes, is there a full-length version of the song? Asking for a friend.


In this (true) tale, we follow the story of Nicholas the Sweep in Victorian London.
