Clunk Click Every Trip - Savile’s disgraced but these messages stayed with Rooster a lifetime

I recall seeing a photo of a 5/6 year old pretty girl, camera zooms in to show that she seemed to have gone face first into a spiders web. Then a voice explained this was the result of endless plastic surgery & face reconstruction after going through a windscreen.

Clunge origin

 

More than likely from the hilarious TV series The Inbetweeners.

Lots of episodes on the Tube

The seat belt campaign in Australia was” Click clack front and back.” New Zealand picked it up but had to make the change to “Click click front and back” because “back” with a Kiwi  accent comes out as “bick”!

One of your best ever, and that is saying something!

Well done.

 

Thanks a lot.

 

I enjoyed the research for this piece, even though it was a tad harrowing.

 

Thanks for reading,

Clunk click every trip. Never forgot it.

Yes, so simple and so clever. Some ads today try and be clever, and fail.

 

Thanks for reading.

Totally agree that Thailand desperately needs PIF's.

I still remember them from the '50s and '60s.

Do not dazzle (headlights on full beam)

Parking (never on the brow of a hill or a corner/bend)

Careful overtaking (again never on the brow of a hill or a corner/bend)

And so on infinitum.

Well said.

 

Yeah, thought provoking but often strangely humorous, maybe that's why we remember them.

 

Sadly the cartoon that goes with this seems to be lost to time, but it still rings true every time I see Thai on-site operations:-

 

Sir Isaac Newton told us why, an apple falls down from the sky;

and from this fact it’s very plain, all other objects do the same,

A brick, a bar, a bolt, a cup, invariably fall down not up;

and every common working tool is governed by the self-same rule.

So if at work you drop a spanner, it travels in a downward manner.

At work, a fifth of accidents and more celebrate old Newtons law.

 

For those who have no idea what we are on about, this one isn't lost.

She found a message on his phone about him going to a bar to “pull some clunge”

Somebody explain to me why people who are having illicit affairs, or doing something illegal, or their mother-in-law told them what the cat had for breakfast, keep the messages/evidence on their phone.

Because they are thick, stupid and self entitled?

I once wrote to Jimmy Saville, Dear Jim, please could you fix it for me, to milk a cow blind folded.
