Fuck me, now here's something weird... was just telling my brother about these ads the other day - I've been to Jersey several times over the years, twice visiting relatives as a kid and a couple of times visiting my brother when he worked there... anyway my brother once invited me along to a barbeque over there, the guy was an ex-military fellow (not Two-Litre now, don't get too excited), but I recall him actually telling me there was a vacancy available on their cheese counter of the shop he worked in... anyway, my brother reliably informs me that the shop was indeed Benest's!

I was talking to my brother about this again and he can confirm that it was indeed Benest's... let that sink in, I was actually offered a position under Captain Two-Litar! "Glebe making up whimsical nonsense again!" yet it's actually true! Truth really is stranger than fiction...

Was the interview "Can you give three examples of you being superlative before breakfast?"

In the vein of DIY advertisment campaigns this gentleman has become a bit of a local celebrity for his shit earnest attempts. I'm not sure if it's now become tongue in cheek on account of his celebrity status being contemporary.

Some great deso in the Facebook vids. He said the response to his videos has been great and that the only negative response he gets is that people shout Zippy at him in the street because he sounds like Zippy from rainbow

It’s all going on down here! Lovely stuff.

Was the interview "Can you give three examples of you being superlative before breakfast?"

“How many minutes are you prepared to work pah-pound?”

“To the highest specifications” and “Glebe” just feels to me like a contradiction in terms.
