Wow, this is an amazing Winter Olympics advert! (Thanks to Gareth Lancaster for the tip-off.)

I've been seeing this on the bbc for the last couple of weeks and just love it...in between programs I'm actually disappointed if they don't show it. It makes curling look really cool lol.

I'm like that with a lot of British and European adverts, they're so much more fun than the ones I grew up with. But this one's brilliant.

To me, it's much more entertaining than the Olympics themselves.

Ha ha! My mother and I always used to pull the telly out of the cupboard and watch the figure skating, but it was a black and white screen and half the time, the picture rolled, so we couldn't always see everything.

Thanks for this - I hadn't seen it cos I don't watch much telly. Cool stuff! A bit Samurai Jack in feel, I thought, which was interesting to see as adopted by a BBC ident.
