Get over it.

Do you watch Big Brother? Nope.
Are you the target audience? Nope.

Now that's what I call funny smile. Though it means I am admitting there can be humour in tragedy, which is what that is.

There is a small possibility you will get over it, but you won't understand what I'm saying until you have done.

There's a high possibility you won't get over it though, which is a heck of a shame and shows that the powers that want the proletariat to sit and watch films whilst gobbling popcorn, mind-numbing TV and 24/7/365 football are winning. Thus fuelling their continued dominance and superb lifestyle - that you are paying for.

Unless you are one of those who get their income from the state - in which case you are just re-cycling tax-payer money to the same end. If you are in a job and paying tax, then it's time you woke up.

It won't affect many people.

Most people than don't watch BB won't know about the advert.

I wouldn't have known, unless coming into a forum,
and most don't bother with forums.

Perhaps a bottle of rosé instead.

In reply to a post by ukhardy07:
Personally I think it's good marketing

I agree. For an ISP which is "for the masses", piggy backing on "Celebrity Big Brother" (an entertainment show, "for the masses") fits their image perfectly. People will either take to it, or they won't. That's for their customers (and potential new customers) to decide. Personally, CBB doesn't interest me, so neither does PlusNet.

I believe that is what is called a non-sequitur.

It's mindless junk, and nothing to do with age.

Absolutely, TV for the masses. (and yes I'm over 40 too).

Plusnet 5+ years ago was a succesful, innovative ISP.
PLusnet nowadays (since BT bought them) appear to be being marketed as BT's chav brand, selling solely on price with an image far distant from corporate BT

And, dare I say it, customer service far distant from BT (i.e. a lot better!)

Who cares, as long as it works. Try Zen's prices and feel important if you like.
