The new Aviva advert, which features Fast Show star Paul Whitehouse as a Plymouth Argyle fan, is the talk of the interweb.
Whitehouse wears this season’s shirt (we’ll take their word for it) and talks (in a very bizarre accent) about how expensive it is for him, Big Dave, Burd, Buey and Janner to get to Argyle away games – or indeed, the famously expensive Argyle home games, one assumes.
In short (and this is very short cos we don’t have any more details about the ad) it’s all very strange but seems to have got people talking. A bit like Pants Man.
We think the biggest shock is hearing a West Country accent in the national media. Most Plymothians appear flattered that their existence has finally been recognised.
As Goldinho posts on YouTube: ‘hahahaha i wanna say we don’t sound likeï»¿ that but we do!!! geddon bey!!!!!!’
