In between all this excitement Sneak somehow found many, many, many hours to watch the television, and with the absence of Sky Plus, more than a couple of adverts.
One of these adverts particularly appealed to Sneak, if only because it seemed to contain some sort of subliminal warning – in this case - not to join the herd.
In the advert two sets of animated flames form the shape of a pair of scissors, and then hack out the shape of a person, this person then creates more people – you know, in one of those chain things, who also walk off.
A helpful narrator informs the viewer what this all means, which is apparently that since British Gas made two price cuts, every 20 seconds someone switches back to using its services, adding up to a whopping "34,830 people every week…"
Now Sneak is no fool. He knows that joining a phone queue behind some 35,000 punters is not a productive use of his time. So thanks for pointing that out British Gas. You saved Sneak some valuable lazing around time.
Thanks, British Gas, you are indeed, "committed to affordable energy".
