And if you leave me now, you take away the very heart of me…

Javalicious I’ve got to admit, I’m a bit all over the place today. I’ve done lots of work, but my mind is on Chinese fondue, weekend and some bizarre ads that I’ve been seeing on TV.

Even after seeing them repeatedly in the past few weeks, I stop what I’m doing every time they’re on. They puzzle me. What’s with the beer-drinking bigger-than-a-car jellyfish?? And WHY OH WHY is the cherry singing Chicago’s “If you leave me now” before being eaten by the little girl??? Does it make any sense to you?

For the out-of-UK folks reading my blog, you can see the ads on the Three Mobile website. I’m not responsible for you singing “Oooooh no, Baby please don’t go” while having a craving for maraschino cherries all day afterwards though.

It’s a mad campaign and I’d love to find out who’s behind the creation of those adverts. There has to be an advertising team with balls of steal to go through with the campaign. I’d just fear people would write it off as pure weirdness… but if it gets people talking, it can’t be that bad, can it?

    Those adds drive me mad, you have the huge beer drinking dancing jellyfish, the schoolgirl and the singing cherry, the helium-voiced computer characters… I don’t there is a meaning, the aim is just to have us talk about them. But either way it doesn’t make me want to have whatever it is they’re meant to be selling. What are they selling by the way?

    3 is a new mobile network in the UK. Although its a bit different to the other networks because it is 3G (third generation) so its better for watching audio and video on special handsets. Not that the ads really promote that to the viewer and they seem to be loosing subscribers fast, not that that’s the ad’s fault.

    For some strange reason the cherry ad popped into my head the other day and wouldn’t leave!! I have been trying to find Chigago’s version with no luck, any ideas? I had no idea what it was advertising but at least now i know ……… thanks!
