Three’s Bizarre New Advert Tries to Fight Back Against Claims That “Phones Are Bad”

"Phones are bad" is what the world seems to have decided recently. They stop you being able to switch off, and people spend too much time staring at them, so they're very bad for you. Never mind that they can do just about anything.

Watch This Hilarious Russian Racoon Try and Fail to Top Himself Again and Again

This dark comedy sequence about a suicidal racoon is just an advert for superglue, but it's proper funny. The melancholy little fellow just wants to end it all, but the sodding superglue is just too damn good, forcing him to try it again and again! It reminds me of those suicidal bunny cartoons.

The Spanish-speaking world really knows how to advertise their fast food. In what can only be described as the most epic pizza advert ever created, you’ve got a herculean man-mountain, a microwave, and a deadly boomerang-shaped pizza.
