Which one? 

Nu bar will be looking fresh tonight 

Looking at Google Maps, I think it must be Harper's Hair Salon? (I was driving past)

What proportion of them were wearing socks?

I didn't get a good look, but they looked the type to be going sockless to me.

That's the one I use and haven't used since September due to not being allowed home 

And yes I can guarantee you there wasnt a sock in sight 

Harpers have a guy who's name escapes me, he's a sound guy, first chair in there, the amount of blokes who will wait for him to have their short back and sides is mental, you can have a 10 man queue outside but 4 or 5 of them will wait for him rather than have their hair cut by the other 6 hairdressers in there

I think I understand why there's a queue of lads in tight T-shirts six deep outside the barbers in Kidderminster town centre at five past nine on a Friday morning, but on a deeper level I don't get it all.

Need that fresh fade for when they throw Carling over each other when England score*

 

 

*maybe

Or go scrapping when they don't... 

Or do knowing kiddy, either way they're going scrapping

Peter Crouch having this media career. 

He's not particularly funny and he's not a natural presenter. It's all just a bit weird.

Its OK, all part of the plan, his target audience aren't what I'd call natural anything

I was going to post this in “the game’s gone” thread but frankly the wide range of people doing this means it’s better suited here.

Based on my initial research, Michael is around the mid price range there I think. Gary Busey is charging £262.50 (and frankly I wouldn’t trust him to stick to the script). Vanilla Ice is £299.25.

Naturally, this being fairly shameless, Farage is available for £75. Or alternatively you can save yourself £11.25 and hear from Didi Conn who played beauty school drop out Frenchy in “Grease”.

That's my birthday sorted then. Thanks! 👍👍

Seriously, I've had a look at this and you can get a personal message from James Buckley from The Inbetweeners. 

My lad is taking his driving test soon. I'm seriously thinking about asking for a message congratulating him on passing his test and asking if he can now be his car friend.

He would go mental for that.  

It's only £42.75.  Seems like value to me.

Some people can just never get enough money.

I can never understand multi-millionaires who sell out and take money to do adverts, especially for shit companies.  David Schwimmer has earned hundreds of millions of dollars from Friends, nevermind the rest of his work. Is it really worth being a shill for TSB? I'd be **** ashamed. 

I subscribe to the Bill Hicks philosophy really. Once you take the marketting dollar, you've been bought and paid for, and every word you say is suspect.

But for £75 you can get Al from “Home Improvement”.

I saw George Clooney in a Warburtons one the other day which was bizarre.

I don't see anything wrong in using your fame for advertising, as long as it's ethical. Fame can be fickle and you never know when it's over. 

But I really can't fathom Ant and Dec promoting online gambling, and heavily too.

Even if I was loaded, I think I'd say go on then if someone offered me a hundred odd quid to spend 30 seconds reading a few sentences out loud into my phone. Especially if it was usually something nice or funny and you know it's going to be pleasantly received. It would be like offering one of you lot a fiver to wish someone happy birthday, whilst it wouldn't be life changing money I doubt many would say no.
