Turkey of the week: Albert Bartlett, Holmes Hobbs Marcantonio

Albert Bartlett's ad for frozen potatoes is this week's turkey.

Brand: Albert Bartlett 
Title: Girl talk 
Agency: Holmes Hobbs Marcantonio 

Omar Oakes is unimpressed by Albert Bartlett’s ad for frozen potatoes: "The comedy seems to rely solely on mocking the leopard-print miniskirt-wearing ‘cougar’ stereotype. This character has been lazily overused since Birds Of A Feather’s Dorien Green in the 90s and needs to be retired."
