Commercial Break: The pasty's yours but the future's Greggs'

28 August 2009

In a move that render such ceremonial guff utterly redundant forever more, that leading chain of bakers, Greggs, has been awarded the freedom of Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, their home city.

Getting the freedom of a city usually means you can carry out archaic customs like legally shooting foxes within the city boundaries between the hours of 10am and 4pm, but Greggs will probably snub that and continue to build their pie and pasty empire instead.

They’re even in some of the UK’s airports now, and as Hitler probably surmised, once you’ve got the airports, you’ve got the nation well and truly by the balls. Probably.

One thing Greggs should do is drop the ad campaign starring the risible Paddy McGuinness. We found this spoof commercial on YouTube and we reckon it works much better. Probably true as well.
