Commercial Break: No Cure For This Wretched Viral
The cool-but-responsible dudes at Drinkaware have a festive message for us. They want us to enjoy the Yuletide season, sure, but without overindulging in a drinkular fashion. So how have they chosen to spread the good word? By making the worst viral ad in the history of everything ever on the internet.
It’s below this bit that you’re reading now, it’s five minutes long, and it horribly apes the character of Mark from Peep Show, even down to his speech patterns. It isn’t funny, it’s barely informative, and it took us three goes and a pint of Drambuie before we could sit through the whole thing.
If you get further than three minutes into it and don’t start dreaming about a stiff drink, you’re either a Quaker, a Drinkaware employee or someone we wouldn't want to be anywhere near at our Christmas party. Which you're all invited to. Except for... ah, you know who you are.
