Goodbye Cow, Pirate, Cyclist? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.
Like oh so many cliched movies, Revenge of the Sith in particular, last night the camera panned out and above the Bitterwallet team as they collectively screamed into the heavens. Their despair, their anguish knew no bounds.
There weren't many advertising campaigns that made our mums think "WTF? Is dis REAL?" and made the rest of us LOL, but the Cravendale adverts were up there with the best. According to a spokesperson for the company, "volume sales increases of 7% were recorded at retail, compared with a 1.8% volume decline in milk sales as a whole" as a result of the four year campaign. It was a success but it's been scrapped anyway. Idiots.
After we've stopped sobbing, we intend to dress as a pirate and shout "IT'S MILLLK!" at bewildered staff in ASDA. For the rest of you, this fitting tribute has been put together by the ad agency responsible for the ads. RIP, sheep on a skateboard:
