A Gift From The Godz
Added on Wednesday 18th September 2013
Now that Bingo Godz has officially launched it means that their advertising campaign can get underway. This includes their TV advert - and thankfully we can show you this video without someone getting their social media pants in a twist. The advert below introduces us to the Godz in dramatic style!
Brian Blessed is on hand to bellow out that for eons the Godz of Bingo have laid in wait - and now is the time for them to strike. After a thunderbolt hits the street, the mobile videoing public are introduced to Zantos, Fryer, Lord Hog, Whaki and Shu Horn. There's also a rock guitar playing fire monster who's not introduced but who is by far the coolest of all the characters. We quite like Shu Horn as well.
In fairness it does seem that the special effects budget was a lot more sizeable than the one wardrobe received. The characters look like a Poundland version of Gladiators. Zantos looks like he's got a false beard and a pillow stuff up his toga. Fryer kind of went for the Xena: Warrior Princess look but ended up more like Obelix from the Asterix comics. We do like Shu Horn though!
All in all, this is a lot of fun and should stand out amongst the raft of bingo adverts that clutter up the TV these days. Thankfully there's no lucky ladies on their laptops nor any Z Listers endorsing the product. The Godz advert gets full cool marks for having Brian Blessed and guitar playing rock monster alone.... and Shu Horn. The rest of the Godz could do with a bit more work.
Don't forget that if you're new to the site there's £5 free for new players (September 2013) You can also pick up your first Godz to start your progression through this new bingo world.
