Cillit Bang. Good cleaning product, or just memorable adverts?

Recommended Posts

The adverts do my nut in, as does the dance tune (see: HARDCORE ADRENALINE CD3).

The stuff itself is mental (high concentration of hypochlorite ions), mix with urine/ammonia and smell the fumes....

Barry Scott, although not real, is one of my heroes - just imagine how loud he speaks once he's had a drink! Unfortunately, the product was used by a lady in my work and it stripped the surface of her bath and now he has to wear pants in the bath to stop her bum from scraping the bottom (LOLZ).

I'm not averse to a bit of clit banging, but Cilit Bang just doesn't do it for me.

Everytime I see it in the supermarket I'm convinced that's what the label actually says. :up:

Barry Scott is pure comedy but I'm not a fan of the product. Maybe my soap scum is scummier than other people's but I find that Mr Muscle is much more effective at cleaning my bathroom.

Fuck, I'll do anything to avoid studying :(

I find cilit bang scrapes all the skin off your fingers. It's lethal. Am loving the new unashamedly un-pc ad where Barry yells that more women have been switching to cilit bang.

Rubber gloves my dear. Preferably the ones with the marabou feathers, makes you feel like Kim and/or Aggie.

But I do love how Barry Scott is unashamedly just taking the piss now.

I cleaned my kitchen with Cillit Bang yesterday and to be fair, it was pretty clean. Though my cleaner was in today and she used something different and it's miles cleaner, though that may be more indicative of the difference in our cleaning skills than the products we use.

Why did you clean the day before your cleaner arrived?

Cos I didn't want her to think I live in a dirty flat....

That's akin to girls who use the sun beds before they go on holiday cos they don't want to expose their white legs on the beach while sun bathing.

You know that thing he does with a copper coin when he dips it into the cillit bang?

I tried it with a really shitty 2p coin.

Yes, it cleans off the shit but it turns the coin an unnatural pink colour. Nothing like a shiny new coin straight out the Royal Mint.

Sooooo disappointing.

So who is the guy who plays Barry Scott then? someone famous I don't recognise or just someone off the street?

HI, I'M BARRY SCOTT

BARRY SCOTT actually started off as a web-based name for a spammer, that advertised certain products, but after pissing some dude off royally by posting on an overly emotional blog entry, he got a load of press and they turned BARRY SCOTT into a real person.

It's also the reason I make sure I do my hair really nice before I go to the hairdressers, and also why I put on my nicest clothes when I go clothes shopping. Or why I brush my teeth like 15 times before I go to the dentist. It makes sense to me, dammit.

From Wikipedia:

"He reprised his Barry Scott character to advertise for Reckitt Benckiser's U.S. subsidiary EasyOff's new multipurpose Bam cleanser."

Where can I buy some of that?

I was out in Madrid earlier in the week and was lucky enough to view the Spanish Cillit Bang advert. Barry Scott does not feature and is instead replaced by a spanish counter-part. It is also spelt the same way but pronounced as follows 'cill-ah bong".

Outstanding stuff.

You just wanted to boast about being in Madrid, didn't you? :p

It's some guy called Neil Burgess. He's supposedly an actor but I've not seen him in anything apart from one of ex-Westlifer Brian McFadden's music videos.

Don't worry...I cried when I found he wasn't real too.

edit: how ace is a thread about the pros and cons of household cleaners!?

It did a great job of getting spaghetti sauce stains off my toilet bowl.

You cant just lick them off like a normal person can you...?
