Commercial Break: Foul-mouthed auld fellas flogging Fiery Irn Bru

October 4th, 2011 6 Comments By Andy Dawson

What’s that? An advert that’s filled with lots of old Scottish men swearing? Yeah, go on then, we’ll happily have a look at that. It’s the new one for Fiery Irn Bru, which we assume is just like regular Irn Bru (made from girders) with some industrial-strength chili thrown into the mix.

Either way, they’re probably not going to showing it on the telly – yes, it’s NSFC (not suitable for church)

    None of them actually swear. It is just down to the script / editing. It is obviously made to try to go viral – old men swearing, isn’t it funny.

    Better reasons for not showing it as a TV ad are that it is too long, it is too boring, the people are too old for the intended market.

    I quite like it as a bit of viral marketing.

    There’s something quite endearing about softly spoken old scottish men swearing.
    Without meaning to sound homoerotic.
