TV ads again

A thread on this subject comes up in chit chat from time to time.
A few days ago I saw (part way through) what I think was an ad for a VW Polo or one in the VW range. It was showing a conversation with a slightly dim purchaser of a parachute and being a offered and taking a suspect second hand chute. The comparison being made for second best instead of quality (I suppose!!)
But, I haven't seen it again since, just the kind of thing that would upset the powers that be I would think.
I thought what I saw of it was quite amusing.
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

I thought it was quite good.

Yes, that's the one Mav thank you. Haven't seen the shark cage one though.

I always say "Buy cheap, buy twice!", but it wouldn't apply to the parachutist! Cheesy
