This advert has started appearing again in which ambulance chasing lawyers are drumming up business for people that are too stupid to live their lives without being told how to breathe. They are a classic of poor advertising and they have already been parodied to death by comedians and You Tube devotees, but it still makes me laugh every time these adverts. There are two adverts. In one, a man stupidly puts a ladder against a wall and in true slapstick comedy style the ladder slides down wall as he is drilling into it and he falls on his nuts. Laurel and Hardy could not have done it better. You can almost see the drill mark as he slides down the wall.
The other version is with a women that slips on a floor and burst her handbag which is like Pandora’s box, sending all manner of bits of crap flying in the air. The fall caused irreparable damage to her fringe, for which she received £5000.
