Captain Obvious has made a triumphant return for Hotels.com in its latest wave of advertising.

Starring alongside Captain Obvious is Gary, the hapless hotel guest locked out of his room in a state of undress.

Created by CP+B the humorous TV ad is accompanied by a series of ‘Gym’ shorts featuring Captain Obvious as a realistic workout instructor.

Rounding off the campaign is a social media push run by the man himself (@CaptainObvious).
