Cillit Bang
« on: Jan 03, 2005, 14:37 »
Has anyone seen the advert on TV for the cleaning product Cillit Bang,?
Iv'e tried all over the place to get it,none to be found anywhere.If you have had the same problem have a look on www.petercooper.co.uk and see what you think.

Anything that does that to metal, I would be reluctant to use it on anything else but metal.

ASDA sell Cillit Bang.  Never tried it myself.


Oh! so it does exist,you're the only person Iv'e heard of has seen it.Unfortunately we don't have an Asda in North Wales,it takes a while for us to catch up with the rest of the U.K.Although I did read in a paper at the doctors this week that Sir Winston Churchill had died.

What exactly does "Cillit" mean?

Type cillit into Google and you get 15,300 results.  :shock:

To save you time:

Is this ad supposed to be serious? Why call it "Cillit Bang"?
We may never know. It could be brilliantly clever advertising or simply very low budgeted. The UK ad that we know and love is comprised mostly of clips of the product in action that were previously shot in Germany. They have then added "Barry Scott" to front the commercial. Here is an excerpt form the Daily Record Online:

Tom Corran, senior vice president of Reckitt Benckiser in the UK, said: 'We added the word BANG to Cillit because it describes the product well. It conveys its power to solve tough, stubborn stains.

'The ad isn't necessarily meant to look like a spoof, that is in the eye of the beholder. It is just to catch the eye.'

"Cillit" is the name of the range of waxes already available in Europe.


Sorry it isn't any more exciting than that.

I've seen it in Asda and Wilkinsons but wouldn't buy it as I hate the advert. They way that blokes says "hi i'm Barry Whatshisface" like we're meant to know who he is. Saddo!!

As you might have guessed it's not one of my fave ads!!
