The Odditiy of Pot Noodle

Every now and then an advertising campaign comes straight out of left field to the absolute wonderment of the industry. The kind of ads that you see, really enjoy, but wonder how on earth someone ever came up with (or got approved). The latest Pot Noodle campaign is a series of spoof news reports which show what happens when people really do end up as “you are what you eat”.

The first is about Gary Booth who, after eating too many lamp Pot Noodles, starts to resemble a sheep. No doubt the ad will result in some serious views and lots of people talking about Pot Noodle. This shouldn't be too surprising though, as Pot Noodle have an excellent history when it comes to viral videos. Their spoof of Guinness’ Dominos ad got more views on YouTube than its inspiration!
