Eh up, we're on telly!

Yes, we've launched our TV advertising campaign today.
This is a massive step for Plusnet and we're very proud of what's been done, lets hope this helps spread the word further afield than ever before.
As always we're interested to know what you think, these are the first 2 of 3 TV ads we've created so keep your eyes peeled for these and the third one which should be coming later in the year.
In the meantime have a look at these and tell us what you reckon:

PS the giant stone version of Samson the dog may be paying a visit to a town near you soon!

Re: Eh up, we're on telly!

I suspect these ads might not to down too well with some of the forum community, for well known reasons… I think quite a few people would have preferred the money being spent on advertising to have been spent on, say, support instead.
Having said that, I do quite like the adverts – they're quirky and a little amusing. I'm not really sure I think Plusnet deserve to call themselves ‘honest’ though (the O-turn around unlimited broadband last year somewhat spoilt my trust in these matters), but we'll see.

I'm sure they'll have subtitles when they're shown on television, sorry that the YouTube ones haven't

With all the rain that we are having, I hope Samson the dog won't step in to a poodle. Cheesy
