Diary: Turkey of the Week - Nobby's Nuts

Dominic Mills really, really has a sense of humour failure when it comes to Abbott Mead Vickers BBDO's launch ad for Nobby's Nuts: "Three blokes pass a poster inviting them to 'Nibble Nobby's Nuts'. They go into a pub, and who should they see but Noddy Holder, whose nuts they then attempt to nibble. Laugh? I nearly had a hernia. I suppose this is Zoo/Nuts humour, but you'd think that for a major launch by Frito-Lay, they could do better than a pathetic non-joke about testicles. Bernard Manning could do better. Feeble."
