Puntastic London Underground Ads

It's a gas on the Tube

I haven't noticed many Tube related advertisements on the London Underground recently, (not including ones that are actually publicising Tube things like the
Bakerloo Line Centenary) so I was pleased to spot this ad for British Gas last week:

British Gas London Underground Ad

They've certainly packed in as many London station name puns in as possible, when referring to the boiler breakdown cover you can buy from them. As you don't want to get a Wapping bill you need their highly trained engineers who are so good you'll want to Clapham.

My friend works for British Gas in the Marketing Department for services like boiler breakdown cover, so I'd Bank on her being responsbible for these puns. When I next say Harrow to her, I'll see if see knows how Poplar they have been.
