Does anyone else find the current TV Advertising campaign of a little, well, confusing and irksome?

To start with the central cartoon character seems confused. When the first campaigns were launched some years ago, the character was of at least ambiguous, if not uncertain, sexuality. In more recent times, however, that character has either undergone a sex change or the mother of all boob jobs. “She” now sports a cleavage that would launch “her” into the top ten of that most dubious list – Top Cartoon Babes (most plump for Jessica Rabbit or Wilma Flintstone but I’m more of a Penelope Pitstop man myself).pitstop

And now, said character seems intent on promoting cheap car insurance by singing to the tune of YMCA, once made huge on the floors of our discos (there I go again, betraying my age) by the confused collective of the Village People.

Perhaps they ( have found a niche in the market!?

Personally, I prefer the Meercats!
