New RAF advert.

Yes. It's a bit o bollocks.

I was offended by his smart crab uniform and smugness at not taking out the Terry cnuts who were trying to blow our chaps up. Must come from being in the Civil Brylcream Service. Hermer.

What kind of a fcukwit would be patting himself on the back at missing the mortar team, just so they could go get some more tubes and blat away later in the day? A cunt, thats who.

Maybe it's so they don't offend any of our terrorist sympathiser 'brothers and sisters' on this 'fair Island'. After all, we don't want to offend them by killing any of their fellow believers, do we? Oh no. But it's fine for them to cheer Terry whacking our lot with IED's and all that, isn't it? Of course it is, we are the 'oppressors'. What a fcuked up PC place we live in. And the thing that galls me - I have to swallow it all and regurgitate it ad nausem in my workplace.
" Target destroyed - zero casualties "

What the RAF dropped a bomb on a truck AFTER the taliban got out of it :? I can see a tactical error in the way the RAF are waging war
If he was a RAF UAV op,surely he would be based at Creech AFB in Nevada with he rest of 39sqn, who have "REAPER" so why bother calling in a Tornado?
I think his reference to 'zero casualties' is that the launcher was taken out without casualties on our side?

Which means they are inferring if land based troops went in there is more risk?

Either way it's a pretty bone ad...
They are not going to show or imply that people were killed for fcuks sake....the advert is on ITV you not think we knock things for the sake of knocking them!
That is truly fvcking awful. Whoever was paid to make that must be laughing his c0ck off. It looks as if it took 5 mins thought and 20 mins to film. I suspect the RAF recruiting offices aren't planning on opening for extended hours over the next couple of weeks.
Yer, nothing like a good clean casualty free war FFS, what a load of crap,
The point I was trying to make was that if they had taken the blokes out or implied it then it could probably only be shown after 2100 hours where the target audience are either:

Outside doing drugs
Outside drinking cider
In bed .......ummm doing drugs and drinking cider
In bed masturbating
Down the skateboard park
Playing on PS3

Sadly if the blokes had been blown up it would have provoked loads of complaints from Joe Public
I would complain of the cost to take out a single launcher, and let the crew go to launch another attack, totaly stupid film
I'm not being flippant but wouldn't a more realistic advert involve the bloke phoning up the septics asking them to send an A-10 warthog to bomb the buggers ?
Couldn't give a flying fcuk to be honest. It's all in context.

Army ads - Troops cammed up cutting around in Warriors, jumping out of planes, all very gung ho and high adrenaline. The loonies arm. 8)

RAF ads - Pressed kit, sitting in an ops room with a brew on the go, very relaxed and formal. The "Two shites look at me" arm. :shakefist:

Navy ads - It's all about a trade, drinking and whoring. The p1ssheads arm. :puker:

Bootie ads - Lots of running around with the implication death will follow. Not sure how to file this ad. :?

All ads to be taken with a pinch of salt. They are never going to show the realities. Mind you, it would be good for recruitment:

"Join the army. Drink, masturbate furiously with some grippers kecks on your head, go to Helmand. Job for life"

Anyone else seen it?

what a fucking crock of shit.

Target destroyed and nobody hurt my proudest day!!!!!!!!!

Cunts, how about taking out the fucking team setting up the mobile launchers. Talk about a PC advert.

How about some goddam realism in advertising?

edit to add linky

RAF why?
Well as they only have vacancies currently for Musicians and Dental Nurses it is a waste money boy has been told to come back at the end of the year unless they notify him of vacancies earlier.

Something else odd about it.

This RAF facility is in the 'Middle East' according to the advert. And the guys there are in normal blue 'Barrack Dress'. Don't they wear Dessies, or at least C95 when deployed on ops?
And we wonder how the MOD looses money
