Are they the worst adverts ever, because when they came out we were asking who are they. To be fair I find athletics as exciting as watching someone plaster.

I’m not.
Some anonymous (to me) athlete talking up turnips for 20p gets me asking why? Is he an expert in the field, what value does his endorsement bring unless he’s got a degree in Turnip Husbandry and agronomics it’s like getting an endorsement on non ferrous welding from Zippy and Bungle.
I just find it boring. Like watching Astroturf grow, but without the glamour.

Almost works, just like James Dyson is a vacuum cleaner.

Solved that problem, but thanks for the offer. Anyway.... compared to my pack of Henry’s they’re shit. I’ve built Airfix kits as a kid with more durability. Mind you, there’s no propellers or undercart on a Dyson.
