Thought I would make a thread to discuss the series of adverts that EE are making exclusive to the cinema.

I am really enjoying them so far, what about you?

I know they're probably paying him top whack, but still a bit tragic.

You obviously havent been to the cinema for a few months. They have just changed the Bacon advert after running the same one for what seems like months on end. The first meeting of the film club ad ended two weeks ago. I have only seen the new one once so far. They are quite clever and better than those Mr Dresden ones which ran for about 15 years! Also better than the future film ones like The A Team which ran for so long that the film it was promoting came and went and it was still showing. Like all these ads if you are a regular cinemagoer it doesnt matter how good they are. There are only so many times you can keep seeing the same ad before you get sick of seeing it. Im sure the new Bacon ad will be good to see two or three tmes more then I will be fed up with it. They should have two or three on a rota so it changes every week.

2 things annoy me.....

Friday the 13th Kevin's arrow is in the wrong place.

In the new one there is a Jason hockey mask hanging from the coat rack presumably as a reference to Friday the 13th - Jason didn't appear in Friday the 13th till the end as a boy and he didn't get his hockey mask until Part 3. So the hockey mask just doesn't add up.

And, yes I know they're only commercials for fun but these details bug me. It's lazy!

I find it quite funny that he can take the mickey out of himself. I did wonder, after seeing these ads and his guest appearance on Will & Grace, whether he had a reputation of being a self-obsessed bighead or whether it's the opposite and he's a self-effacing and modest star who can laugh at himself .. perhaps a bit of both

Well, to be fair, they could hardly have Betsy Palmer's decapitated head hanging in the background.

I am surprised the first one got a "U" rating by BBFC when it has Friday the 13th Bacon putting his hand in the his mouth imitating a gun and firing and putting his hand at the back to signal the blood squirting out the back. Why don't BBFC have insight for adverts like they do for movies.

That was harder to word than I thought it would be.

Also if you go to Cineworld when the "grab your snack now" advert comes on you hear in the backround "Yehaw...M***** F*****" and I have seen that played at U rated films. Cannot believe they have not noticed yet.

To be fair, he and Kyra Sedgwick did lose a load of money in that Ponzi scheme.

You're definitely hearing things there, because it definitely does not say "mother f*cker" after the "Yeeeehhaaaww", the only sound after the "yeeeehhaaaww" is the sound of a straw being sucked. Kind of hilarious that you thought it said that though!

Watch it on Youtube and look at the comments I am not the only one who thinks it.

It has changed now to a exclusive extended congo advert. They can only make new ones when he is free and not filming anything.

I'm sure that they're hearing things too. I've just watched the clip again on YouTube, and i can understand why some people might mis-hear it, but i strongly doubt that it actually says "motherf*cker".
