Come on Carol at Gala
Added on Tuesday 7th December 2010
Gala Bingo have released another bingo advert and inviting new players to come and join in the winning. To encourage this they've brought in "Carol" who's hoping that the number 12 will appear so she can call bingo. Her bingo friends are seen rooting for her too - even chanting "come on Carol" in a football stylee. Why not take a look!
It's pretty standard fair for a TV advert from an online bingo site. It features the a lady playing at a laptop, some friends, and that's about it. The message Gala Bingo are hoping to convey is that the bingo community love it when their friends win the jackpot.
What they don't show is everyone else looking pig sick because they were stuck on 1TG or 2TG. Also missing from the advert is the lesser spotted male bingo player. We're thinking of campaigning to get "normal male bingo players in a TV bingo advert" added to the endangered species list.
Overall it's not a stand out bingo advert and there's little to make it stand out as a Gala Bingo advert. There's no catchy music, Foxy type character or gimmick like Bingoheads or Queen of Bingo. Still at least there's no strange laughing man!
