Earlier this week, 250 Foxy Bingo players descended on Liverpool to film the site’s next advert. Much fun was had by the extras, as they shot the ad around Sefton Park. The new advert and a re-vamped Foxy will be appearing in January 2008, in what Foxy Bingo have described as “television event of the year” (well, they would say that, wouldn’t they!)
Unfortunately, the filming of the advert has not gone without trouble. According to the Liverpool Echo, a number of local residents were very unhappy about the mess left behind by the film crew and catering at the shoot. A load of black bags were left after a mix up with film crew and contractors who were supposed to move it. The bags of rotting food ended up split and all over the place and caused a rash of complaints. Ironically, the paper says the bags were split by foxes. I’ll leave you to add your own punchline there.
