Compare the Oleg! We want your money.

I know this post speaks volumes about my thought processes, and reflects the fact that I’m still bored, but I just find it annoying that companies and advertising agencies alike will do anything to separate you from your cash.

There is an advert on TV where you see the meerkat characters from compare the market thinking back to when Oleg was around. In this ‘flashback’ you see Oleg wearing a BB 8 costume now this is a neat trick as the BB 8 droid didn’t appear until 2015 and Oleg was ‘left’ in Africa back in December 2014.

Like I said anything to get their grubby little hands on your money.

Nowt, wrong with that @St3 (I collect Cows), but at what cost to get the 'free' Oleg, with their qualifying product. Could it have been bought cheaper elsewhere?

Funny enough no the home cover we got was the cheapest and most suited to our needs Smiley If we could get it cheaper then we would simply just miss out on the free oleg Smiley
