Specsavers viral spoofs Barclaycard 'waterslide' ad

LONDON - The Specsavers in-house creative team today released a viral sending up Barclaycard's 'waterslide' ad.

The viral, filmed in the company's Guernsey offices, was completed in two days on a shoestring budget.

In this version of the story, the hero launches himself into a chute which ends up in a manky skip.

The "Should have gone to Specsavers" branding appears over the top of a muffled "bollocks"

Specsavers creative director, Graham Daldry, said: "The Barclaycard ad was like a gift to us. Their man could've so easily been cast for Specsavers."
