Recruiting Adverts, why so crap?

#2
Despite being crap they're better now than they have been in the past.

Do you remember the 'Where's Frank Now' campaign showing Frank's no-mark mates sitting in a cafe wondering where Frank was now. Stangely he always seemed to be skiing, scuba diving or leaping from helicopters and not stagging on, doing pokey drill, litter sweep or playing freccles!

The Cloggy advert is good!

That wouldn't work in Britain though because todays younger work-shy/scrounging/falt wanting/lazy/giro junkie generation would think that it looks too much like hard work.

They are restricted in what they can do in the ads as they aren't allowed to glorify war or firearms in anyway, I watched an intresting ( yes I'm that boring) documentary on how they were funded/made a few years back!

Wind surfing... I was promised I could learn to Windsurf off the coast of Cyprus.

The only times I visited Cyprus were to and from Jordan/Iraq/Afghanistan.
