YouTube: McDonalds Adverts In Japan

September 30th, 2008

A few years ago, I went to Japan (flying Lufthansa, booked via Expedia) and a couple of days I went into the McDonalds there and it was quite different. First of all: you put your money in a tray and the cashier picked it up from the tray, secondly they allowed smoking inside and thirdly they had recycling bins for paper, plastic cups and ‘undrunk drinks/ice’ (along with an “other”).

However, I didn’t see any of the following adverts whilst I was there – which was a shame… If only McD’s ran these ads here…

Boys from the Red Dwarf and Krypton Factor coming back?

September 28th, 2008

It appears that after really long breaks, Lister, Rimmer, The Cat and Kryten are making a return to our screens in new Red Dwarf Special Episodes (on the “Dave” channel). These specials are due to be broadcast next year (2009) with the original cast (Craig Charles, Chris Barrie, Danny John-Jules and Robert Llewellyn) to celebrate 21 years of Red Dwarf and more episodes may follow if they are a success.

The BBC also reports that the ITV game show The Krypton Factor is also due to make a return in 2009.

Look out late8-090’s – you’re due for a revival!
