I am very sad about Heath Ledger's death, but the latest lol_meme post quote did make me laugh.
Maybe I just needed a laugh?
Speaking of which, I loved this article in the Metro this morning:
They say there is no such thing as bad publicity – but the star of the new Halifax adverts may disagree.
Thomas Yau, 25, swapped his day job at a Halifax call centre for sun and sand in South Africa where he shot the all-singing, all-dancing ad.
He claims people 'can't help but smile' when they see the commercial, but irate viewers disagree and have launched a campaign to get it banned.
Almost 3,000 people have watched the one-minute clip – which features a reworking of the song I'm Into Something Good – on YouTube and have let their feelings be known.
One viewer wrote: 'This is probably more annoying than I'd imagine it would be to be tied to a chair and Lenny Henry tickle you with a feather duster for about 12 hours.'
A poster on BritishChineseOnline added: 'I saw it on telly and hung my head in shame and disbelief.'
Social networking group Facebook also features groups in which people can express their hatred.
The ad includes a cameo by Howard Brown, the 'star' of previous Halifax promos, who is slated as well.
But Steve Griffiths, head of marketing at Halifax, defended Mr Yau, from Yorkshire.
He said: 'Thomas was particularly good at auditions and we're delighted with the result.'
I personally find the ad to be a work of genius.
PS. Thanks for all the cuddles yesterday. It meant a lot. ILUALL. ♥
