Status Quo’s Coles ad

This morning a nice lady working at the supermarket gave my son this little paper axe. He’s been rocking out with it all morning, blasting out Beatles songs and the like. Didn’t quite get the point of the guitar, although it reminded me of one of Bumblefoot’s axes. Then I get on the internetz and see this admittedly very cheesy Status Quo ad (below) for Coles Supermarkets and it all makes sense. I wonder where those guitars in the video came from. Are they fully built from scratch, or some kind of overlay? Who made them? Where are they now? Yeah, that’s the kind of geeky thing I think about.

I wonder what’s next? Metallica doing Enter Self-Scan? Also, Status Quo? And recently Dawn French? Why are the supermarkets trying so hard to appeal to baby boomers? As someone much smarter than me pointed out today, shouldn’t the be trying to woo Eddie Vedder or something, since Generation X is all grown up and providing for families now?

Anyway, this isn’t a sponsored post or anything like that (although if Coles wants to give me free groceries for life, I’ll totally send everyone a pack of Tim Tams) – it’s just a random guitarry musing. As you were!
