Now Wash Your Hands

Andrex advert using Blackheath village

Eagle-eyed William spotted Blackheath in the hideous Andrex Puppy advert. Look about 30 seconds in. Then read this wonderful review of such a creepy looking promo. As the nutters on youtube say

“Because some people prefer the old real puppy that was actually cute, not a CGI dog wearing a wrist watch”

The Cactus Pit becomes “Bones 4u”. Arf arf.
The Village Barbers maintains the colour scheme, but becomes “Mutts Cuts”. Which would annoy me if I was the owner! It’s a great barber shop!
El Pirata becomes the “Chihuahua Bar”.

(And the song is called “Little Things”, by Dave Berry from 1965)

Vodafone ad shot in Blackheath

Do you remember the “More Mysterious Filming in Blackheath” business a few weeks back?
Well, Sonja has written in, to say that her son has spotted the actual ad:

Look at about 14 seconds in. It’s rather a “blink and you miss it” moment, unlike the epic version of the Bookshop on the Heath, that appeared in an episode of Spooks last year.

Screenshot below – she’s either annoyed about her stupid boyfriend, or perhaps SouthEastern Trains have screwed up again:

By the way, whoever did the music edit at 32 seconds in should be shot. Or at least, buy some new razor blades…
