Winding up order.

by Jason Stone


Vanarama: “Wind” - 30s

Target audience, target audience, target audience… If you find the contents of this ad for Vanarama a little distasteful then we urge you to keep in mind that its target audience probably voted Brexit "for a laugh".

Even by opening with that description, DAVID is as guilty of snobbery as anyone who refuses to laugh at a man breaking wind in the privacy of his own van.

It's also worth noting that it makes its point brilliantly. Which of us, after all, really fancies occupying a driver's seat in which a previous owner violently followed through? The physical comedy is handled brilliantly by director Matt Lipsey and you really do come away with an appetite to lease a new van rather than by second-hand one.
