The NRL finals ad campaign. It's awful.

Compare it to the one the AFL did with Bliss N Eso. I know which ad got me more excited for the finals of the two codes.

This is the worst ad on television. It makes no sense.
  • * How does he enter the building each day?
    * Why would anyone think of offering this guy a desk job?
    * Why haven't Skittles taken advantage of this man, bought a rubbish tip and told him to go nuts and turn everything into Skittles? They would never need a factory again.
I could go on

Fui is right, it makes no sense. How did he get on the bus to start with? It would have turned to Skittles. And who wants Skittles anyway?

Thats right If he ever tripped and fell to the ground, would it result in the earth turning to Skittles, or does it have a radius?

The bloke who presumably listened to his own karaoke cover of Rick Astley the last time he went for a drive has my vote as the bigger tosser.

you'd be hoping his missus drove the car last. Rick Astley is embarassing....

Karaokeing Rick Astley "Never gonna give you up" is no reason for embarrassment, it's the greatest song ever.

Son, we live in a world that has forums, and those forums have to be guarded by Mods. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Nickman? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Lucy, and you curse GE. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know -- that GE’s moderation, while tragic, probably saved lives; and my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, keeps threads on track and under the appropriately sized, highlighted green headings.
You want moderation because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that forum -- you need me on that forum. We use words like "stay on topic," "use the appropriate forum," "please delete." We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punch line. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very moderation that I provide and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather that you just said "thank you" and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you get a green handle and edit a post. Either way, I don't give a DAMN what you think about moderation.
