    Talking Lotto TV Ad

    I get a laugh everytime I see the new Lotto ad where the old geezer goes back to France to find his WWII girlfriend, expecting her to look the same in the photo of her taken back then. When he knocks on the door where she lives and this old bag comes out smacking her lips together with a toothless mouth.

    It's great! Comes second to the Toyota Echo ad though IMO.

    Personally, I find it crass, stupid, shallow, and offensive. I think it is an insult to those ex servicemen who have been re-visiting the places where they put their lives on the line.

    But hey, that is only my opinion.

    Come on, I don't find it offensive. My father was a ex WWII vet. I know if my father was still alive today he would get a laugh out of it.

    Oh well, I grant you one WW11 vet's opinion from beyond the vale and raise you three WW1 veteran uncles, similarly departed. My opinion of their opinion is that they would think it shallow and offensive. But as I said, that is only my opinion.

    My uncles certainly wouldn't have thought this, being completely unreconstructed men of their generation, but I also think it is grossly sexist.

    I will ask my 84 year old neighbour and see what he thinks, but personally I find it quite funny and there are a lot worse ads out there.

    I don't really see how anyone could find that offensive, but some people, especially around here, to seem to take offense to anything and everything...
