The series of films are part of a content and social campaign being launched by the Carlsberg-owned brand.

The first sees Yapp get on his soapbox about CGI in rubbish films.

In the second spot, Yapp holds forth on beige food.

Next under Yapp's scalpel-like wit is modern music.

The subject of automatic app updates is his next victim.

Finally, Yapp jabbers away about box-sets.
