Oh how I miss my 501's! By the way, the cutie just bought me the new Take That cd...he remembered me mentioning your having the video here. Do you think Robbie went in to rehab because he wasn't involved?

Oh yes, I wanted to review that CD when I have time. It's a disappointment for me though. Too many ballads with little hook.

Oh, it's good to see that ad again. :-)

When I was at university mumble years ago, one of the fundraisers during rag week was being able to hire a team of people to come into a lecture and do embarrassing things to your friends or lecturer. And one of the things you could have done was a live action re-enactment of the 501 ad. Three or four attractive students of the appropriate gender would come in with a cardboard box made up to look like a washing machine, set it on the victim's desk, and then strip at them.

If you were the victim, you were generally far too embarrassed to enjoy it (as I can say from personal experience), but it was *highly* enjoyable from a few seats away.

Oh yes... there was another ad made in homage, and someone's put it on YouTube. Two ads in the clip, and it's the second one:
