Digitiser Joke Adverts

One of the hallmarks of Digitiser in the mid '90s was its full-page joke adverts. As a commercial service, Teletext Ltd had to run ads (something that many Digi readers seemed to struggle to grasp), such as the infamous 'Speed King' phone-in competitions, which became almost as recognisable as Digi's regular features. To amuse themselves more than anything else, Digi started running bizarre, surreal parody adverts at the weekends, which had no particular connection to anything else. Sometimes they would feature lard - another early Digi staple - other times not, but they were all memorable in their own right, some of them living on as standard bearers representing what classic Digi was all about. Since his return with Digitiser 2000, Mr Biffo has resurrected them as semi-regular features, in full classic teletext graphics, with surreal themes and ridiculous wordplay still very much the order of the day. Metall nichten!
