Seems to be advertising Three.co.uk

As I have never heard of that company before, the ad can be said to be startlingly successful. :-)

Errol. Never heard of them. Mind, at my age I only really take an interest in Michael Parkinson ads.

My teckie advisor tells me they are useless. No one can get a signal, which is apparently quite importnat with a mobile phone. But they do sell rather nice horse burgers.

Good ad if they want to product place amongst silver surfers ;-)

I think in John's case... 3 is a magic number. :-D

I'm around the same age as you John and I NEVER take any interest in Michael Parkinson ads!

*Shudders*

Apologies Errol - I haven't seen the horse ad you refer to yet.

JustJohn

JustJohn Report 3 Mar 2013 22:37

I was hoping Michael Parkinson would interview me in a few years time when I am famous. So I am getting tips. And I do have a mobile - but I can't text yet. :-(

Parky ads appeal to a certain sort of person I am sure.
Wend you haven't really misse dmuch.
John if you have never heard of them how come you have received advice from your personal technical expert?
I must watch it again (much as I don't want to) to spot the product placement.

Wend

Wend Report 3 Mar 2013 22:43

Think Parky may be long gone by the time you become famous John ;-)

Wend Report 3 Mar 2013 22:49
