Monday Funday: Europcar, Blinkbox and John Smiths

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.

Europcar and Arsenal team up

What is it with car hire companies and bringing the giggles? First there was Enterprise and Hertz, now French-owned Europcar is having a go. This vid explores the relationships between famous footballers and their ‘not-so-famous’ relatives. See if you can spot a former cast member from Ricky Gervais’ The Office playing one of the fishy family members.


Give the people what they want

Blinkbox is a business that’s built around delivering other brands’ content to consumers, so it’s pretty impressive that the on demand TV provider is also making its own content. Here Blinkbox shows a razor sharp understanding of online trends by combining the Internet’s two favourite things – pugs and Game of Thrones.


From the ha-ha-harchives

Here’s a John Smiths ad that does not, repeat does not feature Peter Kay. Maybe he was barred from this one?
