    J R Hartley would be turning in his grave...

    ...if he could see the state of the new advert Yellow Pages have made.
    Day V Lately? So your first name is Day is it?
    And you spent all day dicking about various stores, it's probably on iTunes for 79p you tight git!

    Grrrr, why ruin a classic advert with some rubbish up to date version.

    There are other adverts they've messed about with that annoy me too

    Have you only just seen it?

    They started showing it a few weeks ago.

    There's an app for that.

    I believe "J R Hartley*" is still with us, but I agree, he will be spitting feathers.








    *The actor that played him of course. There was no JR Hartley.

    The actor passed away in 2001, he was called Norman Lumsden

    Somone actaully published the book in the 90's - Fly Fishing: Amazon.co.uk: J.R. Hartley: Books

    Did he? I'm sure I saw him on something recently, talking about the role, though knowing TV these days, it will have been a repeat.

    He certainly will be turning then.

    Yep, we would be in his 100's if he was still alive, probably past the acting days.

    His daughter must hate him too. Lets him spend ages touring record shops before telling him he could do it online.

    I liked the line in Hawaii 5 0, "You don't know ******, lets "Bing it" ". Who the hell says "Bing it"

    No-one, but at least MS getting some product placement (they seem to be making a bit of an effort of late, with WinMo 7 devices getting featured laughably prominently in quite a few shows) as opposed to Apple redresses the balance somewhat. Maybe I'm wrong, but despite the impression given by most shows I'm willing to bet that the average bank/police station/factory office etc etc in the States isn't stuffed full of top of the range Macs.
