Blimey, Barney’s fallen on hard times. In this ad, personal injury lawyers Hampson Hughes proudly tell us they pay £1500 up front for all cases they accept - so that explains where the costume budget went. Fair enough, as all stag do veterans know, there’s nothing worse than tripping on an open manhole cover while you’re dressed as a monster from a rejected 1980s children’s television pilot. But the worst thing about this ad is that despite not being injured, our furry friend is still making a claim! Fast forward to 24 seconds and he’s walking just fine. That’s Broken Britain for you eh?
