    Default Is that a Red Funnel in the new Clio advert?

    Very poorly disguised...Ferry La Manche?



    Red Funnel:



    If they could be bothered to photo-shop the graphics on the side, couldn't they have changed the conspicuous red too?

    Is that the one with the two women kissing and then one gets married and then the other comes back for her and they're kissing again.

    So the subliminal message is that The Clio is for people who bat for the other side?

    I've got nothing against gays at all - several of my friends are gay but I did wonder at the target audience for the advert...

    Is that Nicole still involved? And if so what does Papa have to say about all of this?

    Here's the full length version,. It's showing in various lengths... https://www.campaignlive.co.uk/artic...-story/1665031
    See 59 seconds and then 1 min 50 seconds etc

    Within the context of the plot that is! I'm not suggesting you fast forward to the girls kissing bit - but whatever.

    As far as I can see, it's a couple of minutes of your life that you'll never get back - a steaming crock.

    I was only amused by such conspicuously idle production values, which used an Isle of Wight ferry to represent a Continental one.

    With a focus on improving air quality, increasing recycling rates, reducing waste & packaging and encouraging sustainable travel, Red Funnel has gone green anyway

    Prob just more convenient for a London agency.

    A contemporary interpretation of the classical unrequited lover risked getting it so, so wrong.

    They somehow didnít though!

    Your Photoshopping skills are commendable but in fact the new Ro-Ro freight ferry , "Red Kestrel" has no funnel
