It is very good in HD. Just watched it in between Chatty man. Well I tell a lie. I caught the end of it because I'm not actually watching the TV, I'm instead having twitter banter with football fans lmao. But the powers that be Sky+ meant I could rewind it lmao.

Just looked at every frame of that advert in good old 780p....

And i must say i am really disappointed.....

At no point in the entire advert is there a washing machine present on screen :/

Bit of a let down if you ask me ;)

Now I know this probably isn't relevant, but did anyone notice in the advert how quickly that zipped up the v lift?! I know with all the POV's it doesn't do this and suspect it was just for speed to get through the advert.. but that would be quite cool!
Also noticed the faces appearing on the big screen.. god! I'd better wear some makeup lol
First person ever to be proposed to on the Smiler! xxxxxx
And because of that I am now Mrs A....

The advert was only 30 seconds long, if the train went up the vlift at normal speed, itd take the whole of the advert allocated time and nothing more. I think the reason the lift hills are so slow are due to the anticipation element they were talking about :) longer you're on the lift hill, the longer you're there thinking "oh god, oh god"

(well some people, ill be there screaming with joy :D )

I couldn't FINk of anything better that to get rid of that!

On a more serious note, I like the advert, it shows off the features of the ride. If they had included the MOJ the GP wouldnt have understood and it would have been a waste of money.

Just spotted this advert at the bus stop, on my way home from work.

Could be a good sponsor for The Smiler!

You may be right, as Babestation looks better on a bigger screen lol...

End of the day the Advert does enough to get some interest in the ride, there is enough in it to tease those who do not know much or nothing about the ride, it does seem to be indicating a ride that is far from scary, so its kind of the reverse of Th13teens when the Advert gave the impression this would be one Scary Ride.

Wonder if this reverse Psychology would end up being for some like that Spec Savers Advert where the Old Couple ended up on Infusion https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ulfmdqy8xCY


By that some poor soul is going to watch the Advert and think oh that looks nice ride, get on and then end up well needing a change of underpants lol....

Well im sat on the fence a bit with the advert....it does make it look really really exciting but perhaps doesnt make the whole thing as 'dark' as it could do.

That tunnel with the lights though. one word. WOW
