I can't think of a single bottle banana milkshake on the market that contains real banana.

Of this year's Christmas ads, I actually quite like M&S one which rather than a big overblown fairytale, looks fairly modern and relevant.

We've looked at ad small print on here before, and one bit that caught my eye was from a scene of kids jumping up and down on their beds:

Yes, in the interests of full disclosure, this child is a gymnast:

AKA we aren't so responsible as to film an advert with just ordinary kids who may get hurt from bouncing on a trampoline masquerading as a bed so we used a trained child instead.

The two girls waiting for a bus in the new Google ad would probably be faster walking than waiting for a 277.

Speaking of which, Asda ads now point out that "'Save Money. Live Better.' is Asda's mission statement".

Finish dishwasher tablets using the misery of relationship breakups as a framing device to flog their overpriced blocks of salty shite.

More small print oddities. I spotted something that confused me in this McDonalds advert:



For some reason, there is a copyright credit given to The Crown Estate at 0:17.

Can't work out why.

The only thing I can think of is that the organic milk is from Duchy/Crown land..? Not sure why that would need mentioning though.

Is that maybe supposed to the the Lake Vyrnwy dam? If so, maybe that is part of the Crown Estate? Not sure that a copyright notice is necessary on something like that, though!

I give you Vanorama, with their jingle set to the tune of "Give me oil in my lamp"

Presumably that's in the Entertain section, because although it features a lot, especially during soccer, it's not remotely irritating to me.
