Okay, I'm slightly "wtf!?"-ed..

An advert just came on for Leap Frog- a kind of pallete/interactive book that kids use to learn.
BUT
For a reason that I CANNOT fathom, the Funeral For A Friend song "Streetcar" was playing over it...

There was no dialogue in the advert, just a bloke in a frog costume playing with this kid on the Leap Frog book.
WITH FUNERAL FOR A FRIEND PLAYING OVER IT

What?? I'm sure it was a MAJOR mistake. But what the frick???

I'm confused.

EDIT: IT HAPPENED AGAIN AND I GOT IT ON CAMERA!!

It was on TMF

Seriously, it was one of the most surreal things I've ever seen.

why was the frog playing with that kid? paedo.
#13
Were they friends? Was the frog dying?
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.

maybe kids just don't feel the same about leap frog anymore... it was probably a secret cry for help.

No. Honestly, the advert came on and the telephone dial tone started and I thought "Oh, why do they have a dial tone on a Leap Frog advert?" Then the girl said "Hello" and the guitar kicked in while I sat there thinkin "What. The. Frick?" Then the advert ended just as he had sang a couple of lines.

That's what I said..

.. does that mean i'm not allowed to say it too? (and anyway, you said "over the top of the tv" which suggests to me that the tv was still making noise, but the cd was just louder, drowning it out )

There's only one solution: Sitting in front of the TV for days, sacrficing food, baths and toilet breaks, in order to record this ad.

DON'T MAKE ME DESTROY YOU!

Why so surprised?

Motorhead's 'Ace of Spades' was used in the 1998 Golden Wonder Pot Noodle advert, the 2000 IKEA furniture advert, the 2003 Clark's Marathon Boy advert, and the 2005 Walkers Crisps adverts and was used in commercials for 2K Sports' video game, The Bigs.


Maybe FFaF have decided to make a little extra cash on the side in advertising, it's not like it's unknown.

You obviouly misundrstand
It was as if someone had muted the advert, which I posted earlier on utube, and put the song over.
