For people who live in the UK, it's a well known fact that the weather is usually terrible. So it'd be pretty stupid to bet against it...

every time you "joke" about having poor green screen skills I think you and your staff are incompetent and careless. It's not funny, it's not cute. You just look stupid. Which I guess is probably accurate.

The best flavor of chips (crisps) is sour cream and onion, because sour cream is the objective best condiment Also TIL Lay's owns Walkers, which is why I thought the logo looks so familiar

I entered a competition like that. There was this shopping mall we dropped by with my family every time we went for a skiing holiday, and they always put me in the baby corner. So we were going from a skiing trip, and they had a drawing competition for a doll. Among 8-12 year olds. It was supposed to be for the best one, but I drew a picture and let them have it anyway. A year later, we were going once again going skiing, once again, parents put me in the corner, and as we're leaving, the lady just hands me this bag with a doll, saying I won the competition and that it's been sitting there for a year, waiting. I didn't even recall entering by that point. We still have the doll tho.

The punishment should fit the crime. When they tried to reduce how many times people can win they should of required the company to increase the chances per day instead of canceling it. Canceling it was basically a get out of debt free card.

Watch Dogs is a pretty amazing racing game when you play that mode. Also in Australia you could either buy the "premium/higher tier/gold" version of the game as a pre-order or just straight up buy the hat. I still have the hat btw.

Whenever I heard the brand hoover, I always thought that the brand is related to J. Edgar Hoover, the first FBI director, and the Hoover Dam. Also I dunno why every time I heard the outro music, I would hum to the Stupid Cupid song.

companies need to think out their competition promotions a lot more because they just end up fucking up 😂 McDonald's: Let's make a competition in relation to Olympics while USSR is boycotting it. And they can have unlimited entries Walkers: Let's make a competition about whether it will rain in Britain Hoover: Free flight to America

Yeah there are plenty of Americans who call vacuums Hoover's, but I think we generally Associated more with the brand-name rather than it being a catch-all term. It's kind of like how some people call tissues Kleenex just because that's the brand they associated with.

I once entered a competition on the Discovery Channel on a lark, figuring I wouldn't win. Couple days after the competition ended, I get an email, saying I'd won a spot at the Dutch release party for the first The Force Unleashed game. Not gonna lie, it was awesome, and pretty sure I got my hands on a copy of the game before anybody in the US did. Loved the game.

Although a corn chip Aldi's Eltora plain salted is the best followed by (for potato crisps) Smith's Cheese & Onion, followed by an unconventional 3rd place of Black & Gold Salt & Vinegar.

Only thing I can think of that was similar in America was in the 90's and early 2000s. Was either Pepsi or Coke giving away free 20oz if the bottle cap says "You win a free pepsi". I recall getting one, turning that into the front counter and just getting another a soda with another winner. I'm guessing they were a little too generous and stopped doing it that way since it all has to be through online entries now.

Until today I didn't know that what we call Lays chips in America was Walkers in the U.K. As I don't travel, the only other name I know the brand by is that in Mexico, Walkers/Lays is Sabritas. No matter the size of the fact, I love sitting down for lunch to learn something new here.
