Foiled

We're still part-way though a proper and exciting update, but a couple of thoughts have just come to light.

THOUGHT ONE.

Today, we've discovered that the BBC's Freedom Of Information initiative doesn't include allowing the likes of us to view any of their Duty Logs. Bah. There goes a series of thrilling articles about genuine public opinion on tabloid-invented New BBC Fakery Scandal Shock stories. We will get some exclusive information out of the BBC, dagnabbit! [BrokenTV performs Burt Kwouk chicken dance.]

THOUGHT TWO.

Right now, Sky are running an expensive advert for their Sky+ PVR system, where a scene from a movie has been paused in someone's front room, because they've gone to make a cup of tea. When Johnny Viewer returns and unpauses the action, the explosive scene from an action movie continues in cacophonous sound only.

The silly thing is, they could 'shift' a lot more 'product' by merely donating very nearly all of their advertising airtime free of charge to Slimfast. A dozen of airings of sodding "Tooty! Fruity! Now my jeans fit my booty!", followed by the simple caption "Sky+. It allows you to skip shit like this", would generate at least a 30% hike in shifted units, GUARANTEED.

THOUGHT TWO POINT FIVE.

Maybe we should hunt down some freeware video editing software, so we could generate spoof advertisements like the above and chuck them onto YouTube, or if we're feeling edgy, DailyMotion. We'd be minor UK-media-related internet celebrities overnight!

THOUGHT TWO POINT SIX.

Actually, maybe not.
