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.

The subject of automatic app updates is his next victim.

Finally, Yapp jabbers away about box-sets.
