The guy that takes her to the cafe is a prick, comes across as a total cock

She was in a Student Loans ad about 10 years back. She must be doing a second masters by now and be in a shit load of debt
It is weird how they're all far too old for the roles they're supposed to be playing. Or maybe they had a few resits along the way. The dialogue suggests they're not the brightest.

So basically you really like the ads too. If the person who started this thread is connected to the ads let it be a lesson to them.

But I bet he gets the girl in the end - which will just show just show unrealistic the whole thing is.

If it reflected real student life, eventually the students will be seen getting into crippling debt and smashing up bank windows.

Rebecca Night who played Fanny Hill in the BBC4 adaptation a few years - So she'd know all about being disciplined.

She was called Fanny Hill for a reason!

The most erotic ads on TV. I can't get enough and demand more.

I'm hoping BT are going to make a brave choice and it all turns David Lynch as Joe realises his much older flatmates aren't actually at Uni and have devised an entrapment scenario with him as the prey....all broadcast live on the web using BT's superior bandwidth and hosting capabilities.

She is facially challenged that i agree and not in a good way.

Wonder if mummy was impregnated by an owl and she was the result?

Wow if this girl is 'facially challenged' I want to see your other half - and dont show me a picture of Xena or Princess Leia.

Medication would only diminish my capacities - both mental and physical.

What I need from the BT Marketing Men is a fully-fledged feature film which is to be preceded by 18 months of TV advertising foreplay. It shall be a production of the highest order, being perfect in terms of both theology and geometry. A cunning commentary on current cultural convention.

I didn't realise that students lived in such luxurious apartments.

I predict:-

The ginger idiot turns out to be on the Sex Offenders' Register.
The girl goes on the game to help pay off her student loan.
The other boy becomes her best client.

My prediction:
The geeky lad will eventually grow bitter with rejections and the subtle p-takes he endures and will turn into someone like the IT guy in The Office.

The girl will drop out, get married to someone with money and cart the kids around in a 4x4 in a posh built up area while the husband is staying in hotels for ahem.. business meetings.

The other lad.. well.... He's just so bloody boring I can't place him in any role.

I stand by what I said on the "worst adverts" thread.

When that girl showed up at the apartment, the fat guy was planning to murder her, but unfortunately for him, she showed up with another guy, thus ruining his plans....for now at least.
He should just come home one day to find the other two going hard at it. Come on, "creatives", you know you want to!

As for "creative", the idea is little more than a variation on the Nescafe Gold ad of years ago - which was both a rubbish ad and product.

Nah - they are too old and the flat is way too tidy.

Geeky boy is Daniel Rigby, who should be more famous. He won a Bafta for his fantastic performance as Eric Morecombe in 'Eric & Ernie' a couple of years back.

Yes, so rubbish people are still talking about it 25 years later

I watched that the other night. It was a very good programme. Great casting all round.

The next episode should feature the girl considering switching to Sky Broadband

Cue the fat guy screaming "YOU LYING WHORE!!!! YOU TOLD ME YOU WERE LOYAL TO BT" at her.

Surprised to see this old topic of mine return. It's done well though, the 'Spanish Girls' one was a classic. 'Halloween' was OK but the latest 'Mother Visiting' is best forgotten.

Perhaps we could suggest some plotlines which they would like. You never know...
