It’s impossible to avoid the Redknapp family these days – Harry manages Spurs and has his ‘big opinion’ column in the Sun, and Jamie seems to be sitting in the pundit’s seat for every single Premier League game on Sky Sports. Fresh off making an advert that expects you to believe that the Redknapp family hang around at home playing Wii, ex-footballer Jamie and ex-popstar Louise (girl group Eternal, then a solo career, in case you were wondering) are back with a new campaign for Thomas Cook.
The ad takes you through couple’s experience is with Thomas Cook from booking online to the flight home, all the while waxing lyrical about how fantastic it all is. I find the whole thing fairly incredulous; the idea that they would take a Thomas Cook holiday to begin with, that they would sit in cattle class with the proles, the frolicking with a horse/playing football on the beach wearing a suit. I’m surprised they didn’t rope Harry in as well, but I imagine they felt Jamie was a better choice for topless golf.
