Perhaps we can unleash a violent woman on poser Ronaldo?
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.
