(don't waste your time if on a dial up)



No - Don't bother your time at all no matter what the speed.

It really is about as exciting as waiting at a level crossing.

The first 25 seconds feels like a 70's educational video on trains, I was half expecting a man with dodgy haircut to pop up.

Baaaaaaaaaddddddd

Dull, dull, dull. Still, I'm not quite sure how they could advertise a car like a Morgan without the proffessional whingers complaining, so good on 'em. At lesat they're trying to get advertising with a limited budget and this is a one of the better ideas.

Remember when there was this thing over an anime causing seizures? Do you think a case can be made against those behind coma-inducing commercials? I though commercials in the US were bad.

Very boring! Thought that "viral" ads needed to be interesting to encourage people to forward the damn things on...

I can see what they're trying to do, but they haven't done it very well.

That was good then. Only had to watch it five times to get what they were playing at. Good thing is it probably only cost 4 Pounds 50 to make. Nice. Not.

What about instead of just putting up a dull picture, they have the train go over a level crossing, with an Aero-8 out of view, then when the train finishes crossing, the Aero-8 floors it over the level crossing...

Just an idea...
