Anyone find this ad offensive?
Actually yes - anything from The People offends me.
best thing on TV atmo.
...not cause its in any shape or form racist, but because its just a bit trying-to-hard useless. And they manage to make Pot Noodles look even more unappealing. Which I guess is quite a feat...
that Monpot isnt in it cos like it kind of links....like he's welsh and he has 'pot' in his name.......................unless 'pot' is a common welsh name suffix
the advert makers so they have to include him? otherwise its a crime against some kind of 'rightness' (in my mind)
IN FACT IT MAKES MY BLOOD BOIL
there are always some (Jade Goody alikes) who actually believe what is being shown.
I wonder if you can guess which area of the country had the most 'believers' in the mined pot noodle? (according to a survey)
Not really sure why though. Are pot noodles pasta ? Arnt they just dried up intestines from the chickens they use to flavour it ?
Lib Dem Shadow Welsh secretary Lembit Opik said: "The joke isn't on the Welsh but on people who'd think noodles are mined in Wales. It's the same as people thinking Haggis are Scottish animals."
Yes, Lembit. Did anyone previously think noodles came from South Wales?
coming from politicians
Everyone knows noodles are mined in france.
What an idiot.
It hardly said that was all they did, did it? It's like claiming a Scottish advert is rascist because it shows them drinking in a pub wearing kilts.
looking forward to the Irish one.
not in the slightest.
