My mum has lost the plot

Has anyone seen the PPI advert with the robot Arnold Schwarzenegger? He's basically a head on caterpillar tracks. My mum thinks it's distasteful because 'some people actually live like that'. I pointed out that I wasn't aware of anyone who was just a head on mechanical treads and she conceded I might have a point.

Bless your Mum, she's offended for someone she just isn't sure who!

I know, I laugh at my mum's outrage every time I see it! grin

Dying laughing here - I love that advert- for some reason when he sings "say goodbyes to the PPIs" it makes me giggle like a mad thing!

She's done it again, this time he was incensed by Barry Scott (of Cilit Bang fame) lifting up the bath to show it cleaning the pipes....'oh that's ridiculous...who lifts their bath up to clean the pipes underneath?'

FruBayerischOla Sun 15-Oct-17 10:52:57

Haha to your mum's views about Arnie and Barry Scott! I must admit when I saw Barry Scott cleaning the pipes I was a bit confused hmm

This reminds me of a MNer's mum (or MIL) who thought the CGI dinosaurs in Jurassic Park were real - that they'd been grown/made by scientists at vast expense - and what a waste it was to kill them all (in the film) especially as they were nearly extinct anyway grin

Does anyone remember the advert where the empty bottles danced along behind the milkman?

My gran wondered how they got the bottles to do that...grin

TyneTeas Sun 15-Oct-17 10:58:40

This one

BulletFox Sun 15-Oct-17 10:59:06

?! I haven't seen the ad but can just imagine it and bless your mum.

Mine phoned me earlier to ask how the washing machine operated and she's 70 grin

FruBayerischOla Sun 15-Oct-17 11:02:18

Milk bottles for you Tyne, I'd forgotten that one!!

Thank you Fru grin

My father was angered by the lack of Health and Safety surrounding Shakira's Whenever Wherever video. "I can't believe they let those bloody horses race past her like that"

I must admit that I am scared of Barry Scott. He has teeth like a cannibal. For the same reason I'm scared of Mister Maker.

My MIL was distraught because Tim Henman had been arrested

Remember the Ariel advert?

peanut2017 Sun 15-Oct-17 11:49:07

Ha ha that has made me chuckle out loud. Love the mammy theories

Mine thought it was amazing that BBC1 got the hippos to swim round in a circle.....
