About this advert
Specsavers waterslide spoof
19 October, 2009
This works so well because the original work is highly recognised; it'd be very hard not to find this funny having seen the original Barclaycard advert. I also like the blunt, dry approach to the humour, whereby the Barclaycard ad is quite spectacular and imaginative and is based on the 'wouldn't it be great if...' notion, whereas the Specsavers ad takes a more back-down-to-earth-with-a-thud approach that seems to say, 'this is more likely'.
