Yes, yes people I have emerged from my self realised obscurity to bestow knowledge on all headz. Used ta be out and about now strictly lying low dispensing wisdom.

This will join da company of ads such as Southern Comfort 'Who are you mixing it with' and all da fake caribbean Lilt/rum adverts we get. 'Real Mexicans' everywhere will be really happy to be continued to be portrayed as Magnificent seven extras. This is 2006 folks...

There is another where he is just wandering around the highlands in a white t shirt and kilt, carrying an ax and large hunks of wood.

It's still steroetyping and it still makes me cringe.
