For 20 years this has plagued me. Can someone PLEASE fill in the fucking blank???
thats what i always haerd - geoffrey is the giraffe
I never questioned why this might be either.
i just assumed there were lots of giraffes.
i was never allowed to go to toys r us! I think that my parents were worried that so many geoffreys would give me temptation beyond their budget constraints.
Geoffrey is the Giraffe.
Hope that clears that up for you.
(I'm not sure that's how you spell Geoffrey)
would be better if they did it in his voice
"THERES MILLIONS" - deep booming voice
THE WATERCANNON OF FACT.
I don't know whether this applies to cartoon giraffes, I am unsure of their genetic defects.
but what the hell does it mean?
Millions of what? Toys I assume, but if someone asked what Topman sells, I wouldn't just say 'Oh, millions.'
"There is millions", says Geoffrey, all under one roof. Is Geoffrey all under one roof are the millions? Millions of what? Shouldn't it be "there are millions"?
As jingles go it's a bit of a car crash.
I think - Geoffrey was a giraffe right?
all the while I'm wasting my life away obliviously...
surprised no one's said it yet.
When they were building the peterborough branch, I thought it was going to be a 'toyasaurus'. This cleared it up. Still think toyasaurus is a better name.

i.e. all his child slaves have to sleep in one cramped room ("under one roof")
I can't believe they're still using the same advert. RECESSION.
Like Coca-Cola using the old Christmas advert and Cadbury bringing back Wispa a while back.
Although, the people who like the nostalgia of the Toys R Us ad are probably too old to shop there but too young to have children of their own, so the argument falls down there. Carry on.
Probably. If the Daily Mail are to be taken seriously...
It's clearly some massive front for large-scale child abduction.
All Under One Roof
Charity punk all-dayer at the Ipswich branch of Toys R Us, this Saturday
£5 advance or the RRP of a tickle-me Elmo on the door
Exit The Wizard are looking for gigs btw, can you put them on the matinee show?
was him saying that inside every giraffe is a horse with a periscope.
*giraffe related comment*
"There's millions of PRIZES," which makes a fucksight more sense than all these babbling about Geoffrey, who is probably the regional manager.
with only children and humanised giraffe in shot.
He never caught on.

In retrospect, that makes very little sense.
Then again as a child I thought the US and Iraq were fighting the Golf War, and that Desert Storm was an actual desert storm and that was why Iraq was losing - because they couldn't see
The manager was called Geoff. True story.
spotted it on teevee earlier and thought I was in a time warp
