I think the advertising people have missed a trick TBH.

Lets face it once your butt is nestled on the sofa/chair you won't want to pause the film to nip out for maltesers, but if they placed the ad on the rear of the case below the write up of the film you can stop on the way home to get a bag :lol:

You sound suspiciously like an ad person.

Tread very carefully. :tut:

Just posted this on Mars' website feedback:

Nev said:
I recently purchased the BluRay edition of the movie "Che" and had to sit through
an advert for Maltesers.

Your ad people may think this is great publicity, but it is just annoying.

I will no longer be purchasing your products as a protest against this style of advertising.
And will be suggesting that family, friends, colleague and people on internet social sites
do the same.

Ha Ha. :lol:



I was surprised about the lack of freebies. :(


Ah well it's game over for Mars products Chez Nev
from now on.

If anyone else would like to register a complain,
you can do it via Maltesers.co.uk
and the "Contact Us" link.

(Funnily, you have to be over 12 to use the Maltesers website. :confused:)

Is that any good?

I have a Quad BNC Dish and only have SKy downstairs on the little telly but my 50 inch panny plasma has a built in freesat receiver as well as DVB Receiver, I'm currently using DVB which aint bad but they aren't going to be sending out HD programming in my area for some time the the Freesat stuff already has HD channels for free.

Anyway, as I said, would it be worth my while getting someone out to cable one of the free bnc's to my home cinema?
