Commercial Break: Champions League ad attack isn't the Best
If you can correctly answer the question “What shape is a football?” you’re probably aware that it’s the Champions League Final in Rome tonight. If you weren’t aware of it, we’re sorry to have to tell you that there’s no more Britain’s Got Talent until tomorrow night. Sorry about that talent fans.
With regards to the Champions League, you may be heartened to learn that in among the vast, guffy cloud of advertising and marketing, there’ll actually be a game of football, and it’s got the potential to be a bit of a cracker.
Back to that vast, guffy cloud though. Rome is currently awash with banners and posters covered in the logos of official partners. Thierry Henry and Ryan Giggs are starring in a viral ad that is so sickeningly dull that we’re not going to link to it. The whole thing is slicker than Cristiano Ronaldo’s greasy barnet. And just as annoying.
Whither that it was all still like this, from 1979. A footballing legend, a woman in a bra and a farm-load of corn. Champion.
