Shane Richie To Present World's Most Shocking Ads

News Image
Shane Richie is to present a new studio show which will feature some of the funniest, freakiest and most shocking adverts from around the world.

Filmed in front a studio audience at dock10 in Manchester, the new series brings actor and presenter Shane Richie back into the studio for a comic romp through some of the world's funniest adverts.

These days modern advertisers are out to capture our attention 24 hours a day running adverts on smart phones, iPads, computers and even that old fashioned thing the TV. And with that kind of competition, of course the best way to get your product noticed is by making ever more bold, bizarre and funny ads.

Each week offering a fresh new collection shocking ads from around the globe, the new series sees Shane Richie share some of the world’s most bizarre adverts, from skydiving cats selling insurance in Sweden to killer bathroom soap from Germany.

Viewers will see educational unicorns on the loo, flashing pensioners selling chicken, joint cracking chiropractors, Japanese cows milked from space and ice cream that is so good it can eat itself!

In front of a live studio audience each week Shane tackles a selection of different themes from the weird wide world of advertising…from dads to dating, from perky pensioners to pesky pets.

Plus vintage ads from the archives, viral ads from the internet and fake ads made for April Fool's day.

TX dates are: Sunday 21st & Sunday 28th July at 21:55 on Channel 5.
