I spent Remembrance Sunday indoors, largely watching TV. But if you were out commemorating the dead you may have missed some delightfully tasteful TV adverts that chimed in perfectly with the spirit of commemorating the millions of men blown to bits, shot, tortured, traumatised and maimed in the name of King and Country.
There were the obvious ones pleading with young lads and lasses up and down the land to be swept up on a wave of sentiment and do their bit by joining the armed forces; I guess we can't really blame them for using November 11 for a bit of positive PR. But I think my favourite ad was for this little lovely. I saw it advertised a few times on the telly over the weekend, especially on Sunday. How delightful for the makers of the game to time their PR push for Poppy Day.
Promising the 'most intense and cinematic action experience ever', the creators let you play as both a US Marine and an SAS man battling 'a rogue enemy group threatening the world'.
Battling against, not for, just in case you were wondering.
