Bulmers have a new ad and it's all a bit... arty

What do turtles and bubbles have to do with alcohol says you.

CIDER PEDDLERS BULMERS have a new tv advert which will be hitting every screen you can think of sometime in April.

You’d have to say the timing is pretty good given the mini-heatwave we currently find ourselves in.

Titled ‘Not A Moment Too Soon’ the campaign places a similar emphasis on the passage of time as previous efforts by the company.

This time it’s all about taking things as slowly as possible, a bit of a sea-change from the more recent comic antics of less than intelligent orchard-workers Dessie and Liam.

Things are all a bit more serious this time around.  And arty.  There’s deer, a turtle, a bubble and all sorts of other non-booze related stuff in there.

It’ll still probably make you want to drink alcohol in the sun mind you.
