Adwatch

Dominos

More specifically, the one advertising Dominos' Football Fanatic pizza. Available for a limited edition, which quite marvellously coincides with the World Cup.

Following the "logic" (such as it is) of the ad, you can prove yourself to be a football fanatic by buying and consuming a Football Fanatic pizza.

Two questions:

1. Given that the Football Fanatic pizza is topped with meatballs, sausage and pepperoni, does this mean that only carnivores can be genuine football fanatics? Seems a little unfair.

2. What if you fancy a pizza topped with meatballs, sausage and pepperoni, but actually despise football? Do they perform rigorous security checks to ensure that Football Fanatic pizzas don't fall into the wrong hands?

Of course, the only remotely interesting bit of the advert is the fact that the non-Football-Fanatic-pizza-eating bloke proves he's even more of a football fanatic than the Football-Fanatic-pizza-eating bloke by having Michael Owen shut up in a cupboard. Proves he's a kidnapping psychopath, more like.

Actually, come to think of it, I bet Glenn Roeder and Freddie Shepherd wish they'd had Owen locked in a cupboard for the duration of the World Cup. Me too.

As a Newcastle fan I wish they had too.

All the hype about Rooney being in danger of being out for a long time post-world cup and then Owen goes and wrecks his ligaments!!!

We better sign a good replacement as I'm not sure whether Luque or Shola can hack it!
