Duelling Cellist & Squeaky Toys!
Added on Tuesday 16th October 2012
If you caught The One Show recently you'd have seen John Sergeant report on Beatrice Harrison - a cellist who became well known for playing her cello with a nightingale singing along with her in 1923. We don't think Jackpotjoy knew about this amazing act when they put together their latest 'Just For The Jackpotjoy Of It' advert. However, they have a cellist playing along with a bird...
... a squeaky toy bird and an assortment of other squeaky toys!
The Queen of Bingo, Barbara Windsor, recreates her role and is seen conducting this miniature orchestra as they play Bach's Toccato and Fugue in D Minor. The cellist leads the duel whilst the original squeaky toy instrument follows.
The music will be familiar to a lot of people - Bad Boys II, Barbarella, Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, Fantasia, Gremlins 2 and Monty Python's The Meaning of Life.
As ever it's a fun advert from the folks at Jackpotjoy who will be running this theme of ad for a few more months to come. They're really giving the king of the bingo ads, Foxy Bingo, a run for their money this year and could well be looking at picking up awards for this campaign.
