Baga Chipz Cashed in

Around the turn of the millennium, my gran saved up McCain tokens to get me a commemorative £5 coin, created to commemorate the turn of millennium. When I tried to remove its foil shell I was disappointed to find it wasn't a chocolate coin.

About ten years earlier, I think it was McCain tokens she saved up to get me a Teenage Mutant Ninja Hero Turtles jumper which came in a pizza box. When I opened the box I was disappointed to find it didn't contain a sloppy, New York style cartoon pizza.

This year I'm hoping she saves up McCain tokens to get me an unusual item that I'm delighted with, to conclude this post with a amusing twist. Or maybe she'll choke on a big chip for me.

Eeeee I remember in the 90s when McCain chips adverts were reet avant garde and lasted for an hour and were just a small boy repeatedly saying "most excellent" until your nerves gave in and you waddled out of your seat to change the channel. Sometimes it were Big Break on the other side so you just had to change back and lump it for half an hour.

I think trans folk and drag queens can be annoying too. Baga Chipz seems very irritating judging by that video.

As far as ex-drag race contestants advertising oven chips go, It's more restrained an affair than I might naively imagine.

Black birds singing at the break of day, stuff your oven chips and learn to fry; all my life, I've been always wanting for my chips to be deep-fried.

I need adverts to tell me to eat chips as much as I need adverts to tell me to drink beer or breathe air.

Quote from: bgmnts on June 30, 2022, 04:40:54 PMWell that's lovely and depressing, well done public. The youtube comments are obviously primordial:

Just ANYTHING but gay or trans or not presenting as straight people. Literally any excuse to whinge about gay or trans or not presenting as straight people existing. I fucking hate these small minded bigoted cunts and I hate that they have been so enabled now.

I'm a big fan of Drag Race, all the different versions and spin-offs too.  But I also think Baga is a one-note annoying wanker.  They seem to think they're incredibly talented and wonderful, which is even more annoying.
Did they somehow manage to say "much better" 500 times in a 30 second advert?

Oh? Maybe he was talking about that show set in the Korean War?

as drag names go, Baga Chipz is pretty lame, innit?

Knowing what I do of how promotional content is made, I expect this was handed over to a young posh production team who probably yelled "YAAAAAAS" after every take/editing decision.

But it's got people talking about McCain oven chips again, so you can't say it was a bad decision. Their steak-cut chips were fine.

I remember that coming on the TV and being VERY disappointed that it wasn't Chip's Comic.

It's because she desperately wants to be seen as a hilarious amalgamation of all the things foreigners think are quintessentially British. It's very obvious she was desperate to break America via Drag Race. She may as well have been called Cuppa Tea.

Was intrigued by that as a little lad (we had C4 here in Dublin), not sure if I was ever able to buy the actual comic.

We hope it's chipz, it's chipz...

I don't understand why anyone would put creative energy into advertising these oven chips when they haven't even made them themselves.

That woman who said "READ IT AND WEEP FAT BOYS" was the one who made the chips from her kitchen, and the boy who said "MOST EXCELLENT" was her son. 

If a product is weak, keep its promotion within the family - that's my motto.

Baga Chipz is such a shite name. There is no pun. Baga isn't a name. Might as well be called Pinta Beer or Cuppa Tea. Awful.

To be fair, being called Baga Chipz did make her a shoe-in for an oven chips ad, but where to now? Break America and do a crisps ad?

She'd have to change her first name, but I'm sure Pentium or Intel or even a casino could do something with chips.
