Seen the new Channel 4 promo?
Check this link....
Copped this from Dubber over at the Wireless - he says "If you scroll down on that page, you'll notice that there's a webcounter. Fairly hefty numbers too. Since Channel 4 are not actually promoting this, just storing it on an unlinked page on their website, it's actually completely viral.
In other words, you've just been part of a marketing campaign distributed at no cost to Channel 4 - and they're counting the impressions."
WARNING - promo contains excessive and unabated swearing. Don't watch it if you don't like rude words.

Gabba gabba hey
She's crossing the road; a young Asian woman, hand in hand with her boyfriend, both dressed fairly conservatively, smart casual, both mid 20s. Shes wearing a jeans, a pink jacket, and a black tshirt; written on it in red stencilled letters is the slogan

I AM NOT JOEY RAMONE.

Sighted in central Auckland, 5.50pm, sunday evening. True story.
