Disappointed in Giles Coren

I’ve long been a fan of Giles Coren but I’ve just seen him in a TV ad for Bird’s Eye. I can’t believe he took the frozen pea shilling. For shame, Giles, for shame.

It’s nearly as bad as Carol Vorderman doing those ads for loan consolidation products.

Space: the final fast food frontier

The latest advertising wheeze from the fast food industry: KFC has an ad that can be seen from space.

They’re not really targeting extraterrestrials with this. Instead, they’re giving away 10,000 free sandwiches (what we would call chicken burgers) to customers who can find the secret message from Colonel Sanders hidden in the image. This could be asking a lot of people who like their food served in buckets.
