Seriously cringeworthy recruiting ad

Discussion in 'The Quarterdeck' started by dunkers, Oct 24, 2006.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. What a LOAD of bollocks???Why do they have the Spam with the troat infection doing the voive over.The last bit cracked me up

    "Keeping it real!The Royal Navy"

    I'd have joined the RAf if id seen that!
  2. Totally cheesy.

    A spectacularly awful beret on the female officer ashore!
  3. It must be a spoof, I mean the narrator has an American accent, the Skipper sounds like Tony Blair preaching to the converted and looks like a pillock and the Wren is a good advertisement for not having women at sea!

  4. tis scary........and I'll go with the hoax idea......but it's on the official web site......OMG! they really do mean it.........
  5. That was exciting, is is realy like that every day?????????

    Answers in words of more that 4 letters please.


    PS Dunkers what were you doing to have looked at it in the first place. A very sad person.
  6. RNR one wasnt bad tho (well for a recruiting vid)

    Have you not got your own personal copy of the DVD version? Er... sorry, did you not get a copy of the DVD version to pass on to your employer :)

    On the subject of vide nasties, I've actually got at home a copy of a late 80s / early 90s RNR video (you know, that funny magnetic tape stuff) which I rescued from a rubbish bin when HMS Sussex closed. It shows the RNR at sea in the mighty MSF - I must try and get it off tape into a format suitable for passing round to interested parties, i.e. superannuated dinosaurs like myself with a nostalgic view of the good old days! :lol:
  8. what a brilliant video, well acted, accurate, made me proud to be an ex matelot.
  9. I'd have believed it if they'd got James Earl Jones to do the voice over.

    There probably wasn't enough cash in the tea boat fund for his fee.
  10. Wonderful video, makes me want to rejoin, pass me my zimmer frame please.
  11. Oh I was referred to it by someone even sadder than me 8)
  12. i expected to see alan partridge at the end saying " ahhaaaa"
  13. Hated beret's , nobody suits them [especialy matelots] , much prefered a nice worn in no 2 cap , squashed that often you could get it in your pocket ,
    you have only got to look at Nutty's , know that's a matelots cap , 8) :D
  14. just the other day saw a leader wearing his cap in proper matelot fashion, (Nutty style), within seconds some hofficer """corrected""" his cap so that it was worn """properly"""..... hmmm, grrr, moan....
  15. Reminds me of a thread a few weeks ago when everyone was complaining about poor standards of dress in the RN....

    ....everything was SOooo much smarter in their day........
  16. Jesus Christ! Have they gone mad?
