What Was It Like When ITV Regions Ruled The World?


Back during the constant working-in-televison daydream as a kid, TV wasn’t too timid about pointing the camera at itself.

Now it’s gone all self-conscious and ‘cool’





(to the point where *all* channel idents in the UK are bizarrely identical - itv1, Channel 4, sky one, and BBC One are above in no particular order...)

So we don’t get gems like this. The ITV Region startup theme tune.

It’s a genre in it’s own right.




Love the bit where the heap of furniture is part of the image of “what we do”.

A mate who used to work there pointed out the Yorkshire Television shelf-of-booze.



Ah branding consultants of 2011...

Have a stab at which approach we think has more impact, substance and love...

A sure-fire way to make sure dog owners get the message...


Only a couple more Christmas Gift Ideas, culled from my Junk Mail to go.

Seen any others that I could add to this list?


On the First Day of Christmas, my Junk Mail gave to me...
Some Meerkat stickers for my wheelie.




On the Second day of Chrismas, my Junk Mail gave to me...
A face shield for my spraying...




On the Third day of Christmas, my Junk Mail gave to me...
Three Laced Modesty Panels




On the Fourth day of Christmas, my Junk Mail gave to me...
Four Hob Covers.



On the Fifth day of Christmas, my Junk Mail gave to me...
Perfectly... Smooth... Mash...




On the Sixth day of Christmas, my Junk Mail gave to me...

Silhouetted Dog Signs Dumping



Not on my garden!

"NO FOULING SIGN"

"Make sure dog owners get the message with this 'no fouling' sign."


I have what I think is a tautological problem with this.

It involves putting a thing in the garden, that is the thing you don't want to see.

Therefore you have created the very thing you didn't want to happen?


Oh no, it's okay... there's a "NO" on its back.

As you were.

Want Three Panels on your Bra? It's my third Xmas Gift Idea...


Here's another Christmas Gift Idea, straight from my Junk Mail.


On the First Day of Christmas, my Junk Mail gave to me...
Some Meerkat stickers for my wheelie.

On the second day of Chrismas, my Junk Mail gave to me...
A face shield for my spraying...


On the Third day of Christmas, my Junk Mail gave to me...

Three Laced Modesty Panels



Transform Low-Necked Tops

"Create a more versatile wardrobe without buying more clothes!"

To "...disguise gaping tops."


I won't get some myself. (Though, as I've posted before, I could proably use them... and they have dropped the price of the lilac-blue-red combo by a pound).

But now I can't stop singing "Three panels on your bra..." to the tune of this:

Hate it when it goes in your eyes? Try my Junk Mail Xmas Gift Idea #2...



Okay, here is the second Christmas gift idea straight from my Junk Mail...

Thought I could turn them into some kind of "Twelve Days Of Christmas" style song.

But I've only got seven.

And they don't especially lend themselves to an order, but if they did, Friday's would start:


On the first day of Christmas, my Junk Mail gave to me,
Some Meerkat stickers for my wheelie.

On the second day of Chrismas, my Junk Mail gave to me,

A face shield for my spraying...



"Hate it when hair spray and perfume goes in your eyes?"

I do. How thoughtful.

And too true. When spraying perfume, lets make sure it hits my hair and only my hair.

Not entirely sure about "...preventing any irritation" though.
