Turkey of the week: Robinsons goes out in the first round with Tim Henman ad

Much like Britain's second greatest tennis player of modern times, Robinsons also fails to perform on the day.

Although Robinsons has the right idea in encouraging people to pick up reusable water bottles, it’s a shame that the execution of the spot is so bad.

Celebrities in ads rarely work, especially if acting isn’t their forte. Unfortunately that’s the case in this spot from Robinsons and former tennis player Tim Henman. The acting is terrible, and the jokes are even worse.
