If you're a proper cyclist you'll have a smart turbo trainer and a Zwift subscription... I have no idea how the costs compare.  Neither of these things are advertised on TV.

Just seen a new ad still using that 'Leddit shiyyyne" song, that's got to be a decade old at least?

Saw it mentioned in a different thread in passing but Jessica Knappett is advertising Walkers. But not as herself, as a sort of yummy mummy/hot mess hybrid character. Might just seem weird to me because I see her as a Name now and it seems like she's just jobbing.

Asim Chaudhry is in an advert for Walkers too - playing a roofer or steeplejack or something. Walkers, innit. They always have big names in their adverts.

What was that booze (?) Jessica Knappett was flogging a few years back?

(isn't 'yummy mummy/hot mess' kind of a good working summary of her comic persona anyway?)

Is that Asim Chaudry? I only have half a memory of half watching it.

I think the fact that it's so close to her comic persona but it's not her explicitly playing her comic persona is what makes is jarring. I was thinking about it after I posted it and trying to work out why it stuck out so much. Sanjeev Bhaskar doesn't jar in all those QuickBooks (?) ads and I think he's playing a character in those.

Not too sure if Bhaskar is being a character or not (maybe slightly?), but as in The Kumars at No 42 he's good at blending a character with his actual personality, which is probably why he's less awful.
