Seriously cringeworthy recruiting ad


War Hero
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!
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!



War Hero

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.

RNR one wasnt bad tho (well for a recruiting vid)

stab :-D

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:
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.
