Turkey of the Week - Grey Toronto's/Captain Morgan Spiced Rum

Be the first to comment

Ian Darby feels nauseous after sitting through Grey Toronto's spot for Captain Morgan Spiced Rum, which is now airing on UK TV:

"This ad, featuring four egregious men creating lame diversions for their female partners so they can go to a bar to hang out, does nothing for the brand. The scenario is laughable and the characters become more dislikeable as the spot progresses. The brand seemed to ditch this laddish approach with its recent US ads but, in the UK, we still have to watch this rubbish."
