  • Finding it hard to Unworry?

    Then please join me by sending SGIO an email to complain about their complete bastardisation of the English language. You can make your point here :
    Contact us for Car, Home, Motorcycle & more - SGIO SA

    I actually overheard someone - completely seriously - suggest to her friend that she needs to unworry. Its time to take action before unworry, unold, and all the other uns become normalised.

    The message it sends to me is that SGIO are unprofessional - not disimilar to when we have a giggle at Japlish, except I don't find SGIO's campaign funny. Or am I missing the campaign point?

                aami.
                I think the point is that its something completely random, and that AAMI understands.

                  The thing is he has a black car with a red car bra so all the swans think it is also a swan or some shit.

                  Then they cause crashes and beard pullings and no doubt a few wang honks, so everyone calls whatever the fuck insurance, and amazingly dont get put on hold and actually get someone nice who amazingly and unrealistically seems to solve it straight away.


                  Get it.

                  And fuck damn that song is catchy.

                        I have a unique skill where I shut down and think of more relevent things during adverts much to the disgust of my fellow tele watchers. I am regularly asked by my wife and child about an ad that is on and I have to wait till its on again or have them explain it to me and pay attention specifically to respond.

                        I will now watch it, sounds like more crap though.

                        The whole deconstruction of our language is a concern IMO.

                            Because this ^ is the problem she was talking about. Which I agree with. But the machinations of society and its stupidity are too big for the likes of us to combat, I think

                              A deconstruction is pulling it apart and analysing it. This is a degeneration.
