Monday Funday: Toilet peeks, Tesco tweets and oversized squeaks

Monday Funday is our weekly roundup of humourous marketing content, designed to give you a little pick-me-up so you’re ready to face the week ahead. Prepare to be edutained!

There’s always time for toilet humour

Poo-Pourri is a new type of bathroom fragrance that allegedly masks any unpleasant odours produced by trips to the loo to ‘go number two’. Immediately some questions spring to mind. Firstly, whah? Secondly, huh? Thirdly, ‘but… why’? Thankfully all of these are ably answered in this two-minute viral vid. It’s yet another example of a small start-up brand using quirky, funny video content published online to make a splash and grab attention, rather than dedicating big resource to creating short, sometimes forgettable TV ads.

Tesco Mobile, the comeback kings

Ever since the Twitter ‘rap battle’ between O2 and Tesco Mobile we’ve been following the two brands’ tweets with interest. Last week, our patience paid off when Tesco hit back at a user who had the temerity to take the mickey. The tweet was deleted soon after sending, but not before it was screen-grabbed and preserved for all the online world to see.

Another sharp-tongued reply.

Sometimes funny means tightly written dialogue, nuanced characters and a farcical plotline. Sometimes it’s just a guy in a giant mouse suit exploding through a wall.
