Commercial Break: Eric & Ernie's Atari party
It’s ‘Old School TV Stars Looking Slightly Unusual While Advertising Hi-Tech Gizmos Week’ at Bitterwallet this week. Yes, again.
Earlier in the week, we showcased a series of ads starring Tom Baker as Doctor Who, furiously overplugging some bulky computers that were then possibly the last word in futuristic tech-nattiness.
Now, on the occasion of what would have been the 84th birthday of the one with the short, fat, hairy legs, we give you Ernie Wise and Eric Morecambe, furiously plugging an Atari games system, which seems a bit weird to be honest.
It’s only 40 seconds long but it’s got more laughs in it than the average episode of The Kevin Bishop Show. Hopefully, Eric and Ern are now doing sell-out shows up in Heaven, splitting the sides of the likes of Jimi Hendrix, Michael Jackson, Diana, Queen Of Hearts and Hitler.
Fuck, no, Hitler’s not in Heaven is he? Shit, sorry.
