The Money Shop ad, wrong in so many ways, quite apart from the product on offer:

Are we are meant to feel empathy or sympathy for this woman because she ticks certain boxes ? Nurse (hard working ?) single mum (say aahhh!) and of course, irresponsible cretin ?

"My car fails its MOT every year." So it's not a surprise when it fails again is it ? Yes it is, to her anyway.

"It failed on the tyres, brakes and lights." Tyres and lights can be checked in 2 minutes flat, sorry, minimum.

More importantly, she's got kids and she's driving round in a death trap of an old banger ?

Would you want this woman to nurse you ? Or even be on the same stretch of road as you ?
