.... has anyone else got that song stuck in their head?! It's a direct enquiries number which is advertised on the TV. In the advertisement there are cartoon characters singing the 118 247 song. I can't get it out of my head and I've been humming it all morning. The guy who sits next to me said another girl in our office was humming it the other day too! It's certainly catchy!

I guess that means its good advertising!

I think I've seen the advert but I don't know what you are talking about really. *Dipsy is immune to TV jingles* - that or I don't watch TV

This particular advert was made by the people who also do fat pie (a website) and has a very, very similar tune and style as their short cartoon clip of 'Magical Trevor' which I love :oops: :D I think there are about 3 of Trevor though I haven't checked the website in a long time. If you want something stuck in your head watch that, lol, I guarantee you'll never forget it (I am singing it to myself now!!)

I tried to have a look at the Fat Pie website as it sounds amusing, but as per our I.T. department at work have blocked the site. What will I do it PP gets blocked one day?! I will have even less to do!!!!!

I worry about that too, maybe we should write a new problem about advice on what to do if it does get blocked. I'd be devastated.

Me too! I wouldn't know what to do with myself! Perhaps we had better be-friend someone in the right department who could un-block it for us?! ;)

Theres not much risk of it getting blocked in my office (we dont have any filter), but I was terrified at my old place that theyd block it
