Burning issues at work

by Alice May

Guardium: “A Knight's Tale” - 30s

While Gaviscon proper has thankfully abandoned the dreaded twins and their ailing guts for a more entertaining route, its new brand Guardium has also emerged boldly into the spotlight.

The debut ad is set in an office, where a savvy woman - seeing her colleague wincing with the pain of heartburn - advises him sotto voce to try the product in question.

Lo and behold, a dark knight radiating a blue glow through his visor appears silently beside her. He's her, um, guardium, it would seem; and he protects her round the clock - whether she's running, sunbathing, or sleeping.

Colin the colleague decides he wants her guard for himself... but eventually has to climb down off his high horse and accept he'll have to get his own.
