Pot Noodle 'tipping point' by AKQA

3.1 8 Votes

AKQA has created a new viral ad for Pot Noodle, spoofing Guinness' recent and fast becoming iconic "tipping point" ad.

Instead of a domino rally in a remote South American village featuring cars, hay bales and grandfather clocks, Pot Noodle's ad is set on a grim council estate in North London.

The Pot Noodle version also features cigarette packets, mobile phones, a wheelchair, white goods and supermarket trolleys, while the trigger for the domino effect is the sound of a drinker breaking wind.

It ends with a woman shouting in a London accent: "Matthew, where's my fricking microwave?".
