Tube Radio Ads & Oystercards

We heart Oystercard

Currently listening to the radio before heading off to work and I've just heard an ad which follows the theme of how you can buy your Oystercard London Transport travel pass at any time. It went very, very roughly like:

Woman shouting: "Love, why's there's a station assistant in my fridge?"

"Don't worry it's just to show how you can buy an oystercard at breakfast time."

We saw this theme before on December 9th, with the "
Happy Chinese Family at the Breakfast Table with Friendly Black Ticket Man in the background" poster.

Oh yeah, and there's definitely the same reggae music playing in the background as the London Underground cinema ads with people riding llamas and dressed in doublet and hose. Don't ask. It's all too early and surreal for me.
