Quirky Brits…


I kind of like this spot for Richmond Sausages, but not as much as I like AdLand Suit’s response to it.

Richmond make almost-sausages for Bastards that used not to be Bastards and would like to be ineffectual Not-Bastards again.
And so it is with great pleasure that I invite everybody involved in making both this ad and Richmond kinda-sausages to be the inaugural members of my Bastards Of Advertising Hall Of Bastardry. You are all Bastards.

Here’s another spot from across the pond, posted by the same YouTube user.

    The Richmond sausage ad is an almost exact replica of the scene in Ratatouille…
