Anyone see it? The one where the parents dig a trap for the lad who sits down in it - cue triumph and hilarity from the parents. Does anyone else find it slightly spiteful?

never seen it, sounds funny

I'm sure you will cookie. It seems to be on all the time atm. I don't like grown ups ganging up on children.

Not seen it either, which bread is it for so I cann google it and maybe have a good laugh?

It's part of a series of adverts for a Welsh bread and has been on the telly for years- before the mother became Chrissie in Eastenders so you can see how old they are. There's also one where the eldest dd is sent to school for St David's day in national costume and comes home saying she was the only one in costume. I think they show a happy family playing jokes on each other tbh

Ermmm Hovis? I don't know. Shows the power of advertising grin

it's Brace's Bread

I think it shows a happy family playing jokes too

hes not a tiny kid or anything and sitting in a hole isn't that bad

here, WARNING! not for the faint hearted!

Now seriously I did find it very funny, I saw it as a family playing a joke on one member, not an adult vs children thing.

It wasn't the fact that he was sitting in a hole that was the problem. It was the fact that the parents were having hysterics and no-one else was in the slightest bit amused. If that had been us I'd have had a good laugh, then gone over and pulled him out and made him feel included in the joke.

It's probably just me.

Is it Braces? I quite like Braces' wholemeal bread.

saw it, was funny

sweetfall Mon 22-Jun-09 19:08:40

yup it's just you grin

JennyTaylier Mon 22-Jun-09 19:20:40

It's not just you - it's a rubbish ad - not funny at all.

OrmIrian Mon 22-Jun-09 21:02:44

Hurray Jenny! grin

MaureenMLove Mon 22-Jun-09 21:11:54

Sorry, but that's hilarious!!grin

It's the sort of thing I can see me and DH doing to DD! She's a well balanced kid, that understands the difference between a joke and child abuse, so we can only hope that that kid is the same!

I think it's the dad's face just before he sits on the towel. Something a bit 'silverback' about it all imo.

OrmIrian Mon 22-Jun-09 21:21:44

Yes portblack! exactly. Aha! You understand me. And the fact that he extends the 'joke' into the comment about the sandwich

PortBlacksandResident Mon 22-Jun-09 21:30:20

He will grow to hate his dad, who will continue to exert his influence through bullying over his wife and Dds, who will continue to play along.

Eventually his dad will throw him in water that is too deep and cold or force him to down too much ale in front of his mates and he will go off to Uni never to be seen again.

While my above comments may be taking the piss - we all know dad's like this!

OrmIrian Mon 22-Jun-09 21:32:29

In fact he may grow up to kill his father and sleep with his mother shock

All because of a stupid prank!


And yes we all do know dad's like that.

MaureenMLove Mon 22-Jun-09 21:36:03

grin @ you two! Stop worrying about him! He's fine! What you didn't see, was when he got himself out of the hole, he put crabs in his dads trunks and painted the word 'tosser' across his forehead, in suntan lotion, whilst he was asleep in the sun! grin

oh maureen I hope so sad I really hope so. What are they doing to his self-esteem <shakes head in not angry but disappointed mode>

PortBlacksandResident Tue 23-Jun-09 10:09:42

It's okay Orm - last i heard he'd gone to live with the BT couple shock.

OrmIrian Tue 23-Jun-09 10:10:35

BT couple? I know of no BT couple? Are they truly equipped to deal with such a damaged child? <worries>

PortBlacksandResident Tue 23-Jun-09 10:14:14

No, they are not suitable at all. Far too miserable grin.

PortAndLemon Tue 23-Jun-09 10:15:25

Are the BT couple back together again?
