Smirnoff showcase the most awful DJ in the universe!

3 August 2012

Advertising companies often use youth lifestyle to promote their products and, by and large, do a little research first (then take away all the stuff that makes it fun or dangerous). However, Smirnoff know nothing about DJing. Look at this poster featuring the WORST DJ EVER.

bad dj

Aside from looking like a clean-cut berk, there's a myriad of problems with this. Firstly, the DJ looks happy. No DJ ever looks happy. Secondly, he's unfathomably attracted a girl. Thirdly, he's not sweating like a dinner lady. Never trust a DJ that doesn't sweat like a dinner lady.

Then there's the small matter of no slipmats, no mixer, no records, no needles... NO ANYTHING. Oh god, this advert doesn't promote 'nightlife experience', rather, it promotes the need for the death penalty.

    Surely the point is that he's off his head on smirnoff, so can do whatever the hell he likes?

    They just need to make the PLEASE DRINK RESPONSIBLY part bigger - et voila! Ironic brand-damaging advertising.

    I don't think Mof is a real person.

    She's thinking, "I wonder if he'll finger me like that?"

    Mof, perhaps in future you should pause briefly before ridiculing others. Especially since: THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A "MYRIAD OF" ANYTHING. You utter fucking cretin. Piss-poor journalism at its piss-poorest.

    No DJ would ever wear a woolly jumper... You would be sweating like a dinner lady!!! Oh dear Smirnoff...

    Chewbacca, Follow your own advice, dumbass: "myr·i·ad   [mir-ee-uhd] noun 1. a very great or indefinitely great number of persons or things. 2. ten thousand." "Myriad" is both an adjective and a noun, and was used as a noun long before it was used as an adjective. Both uses of the word are still very current. That you are personally ignorant of one does not mean that it doesn't exist; if that were so, the world would look like a bit like the MRI of a late-stage drunk or Alzheimer's patient. So, Chewbacca? A little lesson: next time, before you get on your high horse make sure your feet can reach the stirrups. Thanks.

    Disc jockey is someone who just plays records like Tony Blackburn

    @ bathmat tosser: The usage was still incorrect. You, therefore, are wrong. Twat.

    @Chester: Isn't that a knob-jockey?

    Disc Jockey? All I can see is what appears to be a very young looking Penelope Keith. Can't go wrong with a bit of posh totty!

    Posted by zeddy @Chester: Isn’t that a knob-jockey? Dunno about the jockey, but he certainly looks a knob.

    Am I the only one that noticed the 'decks' are empty, or is that the entire point of the article?
  • wise p.
    @ Boring Boy.....I bet you stopped reading when you got to the picture.
  • Mike H.
    She clearly wants his cock. Isn't that what the advert is about?

    @ Chewbacca Something having "a myriad (or hundred/thousand/million) of uses" sounds correct to me. Sounds like a line that might be used to sell vinegar or blu-tack or whatever. So, grammar - correct. You - incorrect.
