Did I really hear that?

Driving to Clapham yesterday, I heard a Visa ad on the radio that included the line: “Take her up the allotment”.

Bet the copywriter had a laugh when the client approved that script!

(I was going to say ‘when that one slipped through’ but I thought it might be a bit rude.)

    I’ve been having a laugh at that one myself. The sister ad “Take her up the Old Vic” works equally well. Do Visa really have a sense of humour or are they just fools? We’re talking about them so I suppose that’s clever right?

    Do Visa have a sense of humour? That’s why the ads seem so strange – such double entendres don’t really fit with the rest of their brand identity.
