Tesco Mobile plays show and tell with a dancing flea.

If it only took seven seconds to punt your product to TV viewers, what would you fill the rest of the empty 23 seconds of ad time with? Perhaps a tap-dancing flea? How about an emo parrot that can scream-sing? It seems there was “Enough Said” when Tesco Mobile finished giving its spiel as to why the phone company’s products are superior to everyone else, so it dedicated some time to playing show and tell with some odd characters in the videos above and below. Pat on the back to Wieden + Kennedy in Amsterdam for making us chuckle, we just wish they had a powerful enough magnifying glass for us to really see Ricardo the dancing flea.
