Doritos, the triangular snack people, recently ran a competition for people to make a 29 second TV advert for their wares. I dusted off everybody’s least favourite hen-pecked husband, Henry Pickles, for this slightly odd effort:
If you don’t completely despise it, why not head over to YouTube and rate it before leaving a nice comment? If enough people do that it may not fail as badly as I predict!

Inconceivably, it seems that registering the .com was beyond the scope of the project. So I did it instead. Why not head on over to www.newsfastuk.com and have a look? I apologise for my content not being as frightening as the original.
