Good to see they're advertising it in the UK. Barely see any ads.

Turns out I have one of Sony's lap dogs following me around on gamefaqs. If you see him, don't feed him. He has a bad temper and is easily upset :D

For those that don't know. ITV 4 is essentially the 28th channel on UK Freeview TV. The leading channels are BBC 1 and BBC 2 (British Broadcasting Channel, no adverts) ITV 1 and Channel 4 (And 5 but no one cares for 5). Ahead of it are ITV 2, BBC 3, BBC 4, ITV 3, Pick TV, Dave, Channel 4 +1, More 4, Film 4, QVC, Really, 4 Music, Yesterday, VIVA, THEN you get to ITV 4.

So yeah, it exists. But it's not that high up in the British TV food chain. ITV 1 coverage or even ITV 2 would be a lot better.

That ad was awesome! Light hearted, funny and got the point across. You're right, they don't need moe ads when they can make more based on that one
