New Argos Chinook advert

Saw them stopping off to pick up the Barbie and thought of the Weber thread, really well put together ad.

Legend.
Love the "...I'm flying..." line from dad.
But there were no Germans blown off the sunbeds poolside...?

Saw it the other day, brilliant. Like the mountain bikes strapped to the side.

The ad came on while I was watching and she was sewing. Told herself that some old chaps on 'my' website were getting 'animated' about the ad. She asked why, and so I said, "Well there's a Chinook in it."

"And?", she asked. I had nothing.
"Sad." She said, without looking up.

I still had nothing!

I'm going to call BS on that - no DAS loaded or guns fitted and it still had wheels at the campsite.

You're right about the requirement for guns! The vines and False Bay coastline are giveaways though
