The bringer of light

The first time I saw one of WCRS's Phones 4U ads I was as high on a kite on industrial-strength painkillers. Since then, every time Jack appears on the box, a tiny cognitive strand shudders in the woollen ball of my brain; I see a suited Satan with an American accent teasing freaky sinners in Purgatory.
Do that thing with your fingers and I'll take you to a special place. Go on. Candyman. Candyman. Candyman.

I've really warmed to this campaign. Maybe because it I was brought up by the sea and the freaks seem kind of homely to me...

I have never really been sure if I like this campaign or not. Its very very weird but in a silly way, so lie Richard I think have warmed to it a lot.

And the "Phones, 4, U" thing is brilliant. 3,2,1....3,2,1...
