Commercial Break: Least funky pigeon ever

4 June 2010

In the beginning there was Moonpig. They came along with their online greetings card service but couldn’t get noticed. So they conjured up a desperately annoying advert jingle (‘Mooooon-piiiiig!’) and they never looked back.

Then there was The Funky Pigeon. Who? Exactly. They’re another online greetings card concern and they also want to grab a share of that lucrative market. They can’t be seen to make a traditional, boring old ad so they also need a catchy, hummable musical sting that will embed itself inside the brain of you, the slack-jawed consumer. Reckon they’ve pulled it off? Nah.

Pigeons. Rats with wings if you ask us…

    I love small businesses and love even more to see them make it. So, even if it's tacky, I say Brava!
