Re: Adverts that irritate and entertain

gottago wrote: Sat 19 Sep, 2020 17.46 The oddest part of the advert is the "Pocket tap four times" bit. At least I think that's what he's saying, the audio's so bad and it's such a random bit that I can't be sure.
"It's a pocket tap for our times."

Yeah, it's a dreadful campaign.

Re: The Tesco & other non-Morrisons supermarket thread

That's another thing that varies from shop to shop. Asda can't do them on Google Pay, but I've had several refunds from Sainsbury's on it.

Re: The Tesco & other non-Morrisons supermarket thread

Same in Asda (last time I was there a few months ago, at least). Had to get them to split my scan & go shop into two, which was a right old palaver.

Re: NHS Clapping

I understood it as a one-off but it's swiftly become a meme of itself and, along with the whole Captain Tom thing, I find it a bit grotesque. I don't think there's anything to celebrate in a 100-year-old man feeling like he has to raise money for an underfunded health system, and I don't think compe...

Re: Yet another Morrisons thread

Interesting they haven't got on the fake brands bandwagon... Savers cheese (and nothing else that I could see) has transformed into a sort-of fake brand, but with Wm Morrison attached to it, and otherwise identical design to Savers. Which is weird. https://up.metropol247.co.uk/Jacket/IMG_20200404_1...

Re: The Unofficial Sainsbury's Thread

Now I know Sainsbury's usually give a ton of Nectar points in the run up to Christmas, but I've never saved so much in such little time. I've gone from £80 to £100 in three weeks of having the Nectar app on my phone. Yes, my balance has climbed pretty quickly the last few weeks too. I'm getting bon...

Re: Yet another Morrisons thread

A Morrisons near me has been kitted out with all new self and staffed checkouts. The staffed checkouts come complete with a 1-2-3 "scan, pay, pack" instructional message at the start of the conveyor belt. *I think* the idea is the bottom bay area is divided into two, so one person can pack their sh...

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

Just spotted this - looks like Boots are freeing their logo from its capsule and finally ditching that hideous nursery school rounded font they've been using for far too long. And also adding the date they were established, which is apparently mandatory with all high street rebrands now. https://up....

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

Those black and white logos are awful - competely bland and generic.

Also, I can't wait for my local petrol station to adopt the snappy moniker of "Little Waitrose & Partners at Shell Select".
