Anyone got it on Youtube? I barely watch tv, so don't get to see many ads.

Sorry you don't like the adverts.

They have been getting a great response.

Always happy to take the feedback though.

Cheers Johnathan

Sorry Johnathan, I have to agree. Ad's look boring and cheaply done. Unfortunately this matches your website too.

Oh God, that's awful. It immediately makes me think of late night infomercials. In fact you could probably do a mashup of that voiceover on a video of a sexy callgirl and nobody would know the difference!

Yeah it really does sound like an infomercial. I just switch off when I see it. It is the voice and the graphics especially the phone breaking the chains.

Yeah I have to say, to me they do come across as feeling a bit 'cheap'.

LOL Jae the VO GUY may never be the same!!

We were going for a Black + White no nonsense feel rather than cheap but feedback noted.

To be fair to B&W, they don't have the large marketing budgets that the other telcos have...I think they have done the right thing in sinking the money into airtime, not production. It's simple, easy to understand etc etc. While not as clever as 2Degrees latest ads...I think they do the job.

I hope they didn't may more than a few hundred bucks for their web/graphic design

Not fond of them for reasons noted above, and I reckon 30 mins in Powerpoint would yield an almost identical ad.

BUT "free texts" sounds good.

So I can join Black & White, and not pay a cent, just get free texts? Where do I sign?
