The bit about the andrex how do you wipe ads made me happy I only ever watch shows online so never have to see such nonsense (except in a comedy news program like this).

That's a very narrow perspective.

Don't think of it as a film review for people trying to decide if they want to go and see/buy it. Think of it as a discussion of a film that people have already watched, a bit like a book group.
Book groups are more timely, also.

Before I see films, I'm very wary of spoilers, but I enjoy reading/hearing the insight of others after I've actually watched something. So this "review" suited me just fine.
Well, if you want to be behind the curve, fine.

I fell right into their cunning trap this morning by deliberately NOT buying their product. To be honest, I thought the advert was a Brooker joke - until I saw all the Andrex bog rolls in Sainsburys this morning had 'SCRUNGE OR FOLD' written all over them. Just disgusting.
Scrunch, rather than scrunge.

I was still laughing at the pope woman at the 6th time but I've no idea why I thought it was still funny!
It might've worked better if they'd tightened it up for further repeats. She said, I think, four brief things, with a massive gap between 2 and 3, which just felt longer the more it was repeated. Cut it after the second, and it would've worked better.

Thanks Ad-men - your bone-headed campaign is the least welcome toilet intrusion since Oscar Pistorius.
And there was me thinking that Elvis was the only celeb to die on the toilet...

You don't at all sound like you run a DVD reviews website Is your site only for people that have already seen the film on the DVD that you're reviewing?

Scrunch, rather than scrunge.
I prefer scrunge

The Shitpeas and Cunk section this week about Brian Cox having a mental breakdown on camera was brilliant.

I thought it just waffled on and left me feeling cold. I can't stand Cox at the best of times, so this meant nothing to me.
