Talking Tortoise & A Hot Man
Added on Tuesday 7th October 2014
Doctor Paula Legg and Mecca Bingo are back on our screens this October with the second of their off the wall TV ads. Last month we had the enjoyment watching a poor actor undertake the role of a twerking cactus. This time round someone's career highlight is to be a talking tortoise head.
The advert starts off pretty much like the twerking cactus one. Dr Paula Legg pops up to tell us what we like - this time it's hot men and cute animals. Sorry Paula but I have done science and stuff and can safely say one of those statements is incorrect. Anyway Dr Paula is keen to share her latest findings with us and introduces a talking tortoise being stroked by a hot man who's name is Darren.
To be fair we much prefer the twerking cactus. The talking tortoise CGI is pretty poor and "Hot Darren" just looks a bit of berk stroking the tortoise. At some angles he looks a bit like Jamie Redknapp although at all the others he just looks mad. You have to feel sorry for the actors in these roles - let's hope this isn't the pinnacle of their careers and they're only doing it for the money.
And this advert is in fact all about the money. Mecca Bingo are advertising the £1million giveaway which is running at the site and across the Virtue Fusion network in October. Each week there's between £150,000 and £400,000 to be won. You earn entries simply by playing £5 on bingo - play on Sundays and Tuesdays to earn extra entries.
As mentioned this is the second of three adverts that feature Dr Paula Legg. We have no idea what they'll come up for the third and final one though - although we're hoping they'll parody the giggling ladies with their laptops on a sofa. Now that'd be fun!
