Pick of the Week: BBC's comic ads show what's great about iPlayer

The campaign shows off the best of British humour.

The Beeb has hit the nail on the head in a series of ads promoting iPlayer, with the right mixture of comedy, creativity and craft.

The type of weird and sarcastic comedy seen in the spot featuring a couple who thought Peaky Blinders was about "curious neighbours" is what draws me to iPlayer in the first place. By using actors and comedians from the shows in disguise – including Peaky Blinders' Kate Phillips and Aimee-Ffion Edwards and Man Like Mobeen’s Guz Khan – the BBC Creative team have demonstrated how to have fun with the talent available to them.
