Sun Bingo’s latest ad wholeheartedly eludes the crusty stereotypes associated with the sedentary gambling game, tapping into meme culture with rapping horses, the director of People Just Do Nothing and a cover of Funky Dee’s grime masterpiece, ‘Are You Gonna Bang Doe’?

The integrated ‘Are You Gonna Bingo?’ campaign is led by a two-minute hero film starring Bristolian comedian Jayde Adams. After asking her mates at the bus stop if they are indeed ‘gonna bingo’, she goes on to star in her own highly produced music video endorsing the humble numerical game of luck.

The film aims to show how, through The Sun’s online game, players can enjoy bingo action anywhere at any time. Adams and her posse are seen playing on their phones on a mini golf course, standing in a field, on the red carpet, at the greyhound races, in an Asian tea plantation, and in Tenby, Denby and Scratchy Bottom.

The breakdown comes from a rapping horse, upon which Adams is sat playing bingo.
