There are not many TV adverts that make me laugh out loud, but the current Slough TV advert did just that.
Trouble is, I am not actually sure that my ROFL was quite what the advertiser had hoped for. It was a harmless advert of course. Intriguing with excited children - “Are we there yet?” - eagerly anticipating the journey and their arrival... But their arrival is where the problems start. With all due respect to our near neighbour, it really does stretch credulity to suggest that children would get excited about going to Slough.
Luckily - I suppose - the advert is not actually for Slough, it is for the Holiday Inn at Slough... Big difference? A tongue in cheek production as it turns out, but what will Slough make of that?
The advert on Youtube (Warning... some of the comments posted by certain Youtube viewers are predictably crass and foul-mouthed so probably best avoided)
