Try Not To Be Sick

A laugh out loud line from a serious article by Charlie Brooker. He starts by telling us about how his headmaster argued against racism, referencing WW2, then moves on to the BNP political broadcast.

But there’s more to the advert’s failure than its hideous use of colour schemes. Every aspect of it is bad. The framing is bad. The sound is bad. The script is bad. For all their talk about representing the Great British Worker, when it comes to promotional material, the BNP can’t even represent the most basic British craftsmanship.

Nick Griffin’s first line is “Don’t turn it off!”, which in terms of opening gambits is about as enticing as hearing someone shout “Try not to be sick!” immediately prior to intercourse.
