Faster food.

by Syd Briscoe

Just-Eat: “We Got It” - 40s

KFC, Greggs, and McDonald's are among the British favourites on the menu for takeaway service Just-Eat. While the brand holds its own against big-name competitors like Deliveroo and Uber Eats, it's also crafted a cheeky commercial personality to stand out from the bike-based crowd.

Thus, this snappy ad sees all manner of customers addressed in quick-fire fashion. From elderly Doris to sporty types who kayak for leisure and even the Doom_Master4000 (who we assume relaxes via online gaming), everyone is encouraged to ditch the kitchen and let someone else worry about dinner.

A brilliantly bewildered central performance complements the film's rapid onslaught, while a robotic voiceover further suggests that utmost efficiency is key to the brand's model. Attention-grabbing work from director Finn Keenan and co., sure to appeal more than ever as lockdown drags on.
