Video: Yellow Pages via YouTube
This Australian Yellow Pages ad would have to be one of my favourite of all time. It follows the misfortune of a few tradesmen working on a clients house.
A painter is just putting the finishing touches to a client’s house as she is leaving for work. The client’s dog bonnie stays with the painter. As the tradesman steps off his ladder the dog runs by and knocks the ladder down and in doing so breaks off a set of wall mounted speakers.
The painter then looks at the yellow pages for an electrician, who comes to fix the speakers. The electrician says that the whole wiring to the speaker will need to be fixed and as he pulls the wire out he upsets a nest of wasps.
The two tradesmen then use the yellow pages to call a pest expert, he comes around, however the dog is also attacked by the wasps, so the three tradesmen then call Robbins Veterinary Clinic and as you will see in the video this is where it gets funny.
