Per­haps we can un­leash a vi­o­lent wo­man on poser Ron­aldo?

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - MEDIA& MARKETING -

MAYBE it’s be­cause “girls be­ing bad” re­minded me of my daugh­ter ( she’s bought her­self a flick knife – go fig­ure), I quite liked this ad for Dstv’s CI (Crim­i­nal In­ves­ti­ga­tion) chan­nel.

The pro­grammes it is pro­mot­ing are all about fe­males of the species and how they can be as deadly, if not more so, than men.

So you see gor­geous women (what else?) shoot­ing, hack­ing and set­ting fire to var­i­ous words.

It’s nicely shot, the colours make the im­age stand out (es­pe­cially when you see it in HD) and it gets the point across, so it gets an Or­chid or, as my daugh­ter would say: “Hell, yeah!” (Don’t blame me).

Still on the sub­ject of my off­spring’s foibles, I must men­tion that she and I share a sim­i­lar view of Por­tuguese foot­ball star Cris­tiano Ron­aldo.

He may have tal­ents, but com­pared to the likes of Lionel Messi, we think, he is not the man he thinks he is .

The more you see of Ron­aldo, the more of a poser he be­comes.

And he just looks silly in a TV ad for a hair prepa­ra­tion called Clear, I think it is.

You see him drip­ping jew­ellery, shirt open, hair slicked with some­thing which looks like it could drown pen­guins and a va­cant grin.

The ad just makes you want to laugh or shout abuse at the TV screen, so it gets a care­fully gelled Onion.

At the Mike’s Kitchen at N1 City, and pre­sum­ably at their other branches as well, they have ban­ners at the en­trance ad­ver­tis­ing their break­fast, which comes with 2 rashes. Not hav­ing med­i­cal aid, I thought I would rather play it safe, and went to the Wimpy next door, which serves ba­con rash­ers with its eggs.

And my thanks to the ever­ob­ser­vant for this one (right), snapped at the Vil­lage Nurs­ery in Four­ways.
