Funny British Commercials
I don’t know what it is about life in the UK, but British commercials are HILARIOUS!
This weekend during X-Factor, a new commercial (sorry — advert!) aired for Yeo Valley organic dairy products.
It aired only once, but it was GLORIOUS — a boy band of HOT FARMERS, appropriately named “Churned” — singing about organic farming and staying in tune with nature, with lyrics like “Family farming has been the driving factor, plowing into the future aboard a shiny tractor.” Oh, and they drink milk in a very sexy manner.

It only aired once on the show, but it was the talk of the internet, even making it onto US news sites.

And my favorite from my last visit to the UK: “Groovy Kind of Love” by Walkers chips, known everywhere else in the world as Lays:
I love the Brits — they don’t take themselves seriously, and that’s what makes British commercials so funny.
