I just want to give some blog-love to the very cute, very funny TV ad for Boots anti-ageing cream. It features the sort of conversation that goes on between couples all the time, with the guy unknowingly putting his foot in it and the woman becoming indignant.
It’s a funny, well-written script, acted with nice comic timing and great facial expressions. I just love it. It makes me chuckle every time.
Oh, and by the way they’re a black couple. I have to admit that part of me is also really pleased that this great ad just happens to feature a black couple. Their colour is a total aside. It could have been acted by a white couple and worked just as well. It’s great to see black people being portrayed in normal, everyday situations. Not portraying clichés, or in the background making up numbers. Just being normal.
It really is the simple things that can make the difference.
