Put The Meow Into Bingo
Added on Thursday 11th October 2012
Kitty Bingo have wasted no time in making their mark on the world of bingo TV advertising. They've kicked off with a James Bond/Austin Powers themed advert. A megalomaniac wants some money transferring immediately or the world will face unimaginable consequences. Sadly, his kitty is a little bit bored of it all and instead goes and plays bingo on the laptop.
In true bingo advert fashion the cat is a winner - although thankfully we're spared any dancing along the lines of the Wink Bingo Weimaraner Dogs. We're then told, by a very sexy voice over lady that there's £10 free play at new Kitty Bingo and to put the meow back into bingo.
It's a slick advert and with Skyfall due out later this month (October 2012) it's very much "on topic". There's some relationship between the advert and the Kitty Bingo Site - the baddie appears in cartoon form on site - but the two don't marry as well as we'd like. We're also unsure about putting the 'meow back into bingo'... there's no meow in bingo! Mind you, down in South Wales meow meow is something completely different and it's not the kind of thing you want in your bingo halls.
It's definitely better than the effort Minxy Bingo, the last site to feature a moggy in their logo, put out! Sadly we have no idea who the actor is in the advert although we think Gabrielle Glaister may be doing the voice over - we'll see if we can verify that.
A safe start then for Kitty Bingo - what would be cool is if they then used this as a stepping stone for a series of ads perhaps showing that cats are taking over the world. Oh, hold up... that's Cravendale Milk!
