Monday Funday: betting, basketball and booze

We believe Mondays should not be mundane. The start of the week should not be bleak. The first day should not be the worst day. That’s why we created a weekly roundup of quality content with a sense of humour, to make Mondays into Fundays.

Coral grief

This is a football-related video from high street bookmakers Coral, starring YouTube impressionist Darren Farley (a Liverpuddlian football fan who specialises in impersonating Liverpuddlian football players). Be warned, you can’t unsee it.

Facebook commenters, not the most charitable bunch at the best of times, were not kind.

Americans do it better

Now let’s see how a US sports brand goes about creating viral content. This is the first webisode in a series by Nike, starring two NBA players and penned by a former writer on the Chapelle show. Don’t worry, I have no idea who these athletes are either – but you can’t deny they know how to deliver a line.


Make sure to watch the second episode too.

And now for a bit of vintage advertising history, courtesy of Carling Black Label. A touch jingoistic perhaps, but they don’t make ’em like this anymore.


Where next?
