Advert filmed on NCR


Recommended Posts

I would urge everyone to watch the "making of" video just below the advert.


It's safe to assume that the brief was to show that interparcel.com offers a web-based door to door parcel delivery service which is more convenient than going to the post office.


So they film a bloke going to the post office in the rain. Then they cut to a bloke in the warm indoors who does the same job with his laptop using interparcel.com.


The number of "creatives" involved: 2.


It's people like this who are in danger of giving advertising a bad name.

If they'll give me a consultancy fee -- I assume a few thousand will be the norm -- I'll tell them not to be so daft as to force potential customers to go through several passes of a quotation-getting routine to get any idea of their price structure.

At the beginning of the video, I think the row of shops on the right is around about where the pet shop is.


Bear in mind this was filmed a long time ago :)

I moved here in 1991 and I don't remember that shop/house, though admittedly my memory is crap :))


I remember a butcher, a newsagent, a cobbler and a Greek deli in North Cross Road, all of which have long gone.

    • Brockwell Park is still fenced off and looks like it will be for some time. The council have put signs up saying that Brockwell Live are responsible for restoring the park (got to love it when council's point the fingers at others to aportion blame!) and that the fences will stay up "until further notice". Looking through the fence gaps I suspect the Brockwell Wall will be up for some time as huge swathes of the park are compacted mud. The Brixton side of the park was very crowded due to the Herne Hill side being unusable.
    • And put an elasticated collar with bell on your cat so that needless deaths and maimings of small birds/mammals be avoided. 
    • Does anyone know what's happening with The Grove Tavern on the corner of Lordship lane and the A205? There is a new fence around the building. 🤷‍♂️
    • You did say that your neighbour was being cagey and I'm wondering if , for instance , he's doing a partial chimney breast removal rather than the whole thing and that he thinks this doesn't need a party wall agreement.
