Commercial Break: A cheap bit of Hartlepool monkey business
Here’s an odd one – an advert that appears to have cost less to make than the actual product that it is plugging. And as the product itself is only £100, that’s some pretty good going.
It’s an ad for Hartlepool United’s season ticket offer, starring the club mascot H’Angus the monkey – based of course on the monkey that the town’s residents hung during World War I* after suspecting him to be a French spy.
Good to see that the people of Hartlepool have come so far since then...
*Actually, it was the Napoleonic Wars, but World War I sounded better.
