Moonpig

The first time I saw this advert I though I was hallucinating. Vince had gone to the corner shop to buy a lottery ticket and he came back just after it finished.

I explained the advert to him and said that I wasn't sure it was real, and knowning my luck it would be an advert that was never on TV again. Fortunately it was on later the same evening so I could prove to myself, and to Vince, that I hadn't imagined it.

I don't what it is about this advert that makes me laugh so much. It must surely be one of the simplest and cheapest on TV. I think it has something to do with the cheesy 50s style harmonies.

I have yet to use their services but I know I will one day. What I want to know is why the fuck is it called Moonpig?!

If that is reality then I am a bit scared!

I think they must have a link to the Uncle Quentin Portal - I keep seeing Uncle Quentins (straight from the Famous Five novels), in full fifties regalia. Worrying.

Apparently it is called moonpig because it was one of the founders nicknames at school.
