It seems it's OK to grab and kiss on the mouth a complete stranger on a train as long as you mean well when you do it (and presumably you are also one of those alcoholic footballers that we all love so much we let them off anything and everything, god knows why). Not for the first time, I despair.

The guardian quoted someone describing this ad as being like a hostage video, and apparently it's caused the share price to drop 9%.

I had to watch it.



<shudder> Seeing that she seems to be fit and lean at the start, has it changed her by turning her into a shut-in? I can't decide if it would be creepier if she was fat at the start. Yeah, probably creepier.

I think it was on HIGNfY last night that the actress from that advert has now done another one for gin where she sits in a bar with her female friends, downs an entire G&T in one and the tag line plays " Exercise bike not included"

Edit: I was almost right.
