Handy Chit Chat Bingo
Added on Wednesday 9th October 2013
Chit Chat Bingo have decided it's high time they were on the small screen and have launched a brand new TV campaign. They've opted to do something a little different by using talking hands to help put out the word about the site. The clip starts off with the hands talking about their current bingo game.
Thankfully Chit Chat Bingo have been reading the "how to guide" for bingo ads and have remembered to include a shot of a laptop and a winning message appearing on screen. The only difference is that instead of glamourous ladies we have these weird talking hands.
The ad then changes to feature a glamourous lady, albeit in cartoon form. She tells us about the welcome bonus for new players at chitchatbingo.com and how the deposit £10 and get £20 free offer will come in handy. Handy... geddit.. ah well. The cartoon lady is called Josie and features more on Chit Chat's Facebook page rather than the main site. We think we'd rather have seen her more in the ad than the hand people.
Recent bingo adverts have all tried to be a little different from the norm - we've had 32Red's Do You Like Winning and Iceland Bingo's ducks - and now this. Now we do applaud trying to be different, but none of them are that great or memorable. Well, 32Red's is memorable for all the wrong reasons.
In our view all three can be filed under the category of "a little bit weird". Of the three though this one is probably the best. The problem is after seeing the ad a few times we're just left with the feeling of "Chit Chat" couldn't afford to pay for actors or puppets so made do with hands.
