5 Burning Questions We Have About Thorne Travel's So-Bad-It's-Viral Advert
Here's the ad itself - rapidly closing in on one million views, and attracting comments from as far away as Australia
Question 1: What's with all the hand-on-hip marching?
About 30% of the video is made up of hand-on-hip ladies (plus one sore-thumb bloke) stomping through the local shopping precinct like polyster-clad, flight-booking stormtroopers.
Here they come, striding menacingly towards the camera...
Now here they are, at an angle, and then viewed from behind...
Here they are from a distance...
Here's one of them close-up...
And here's a shot of their mighty legs as they pound the pavements of Kilwinning, terrifying all within their path...
Is the marching an integral part of the holiday-booking process? Do email us if you know, won't you.
Question 2: Are they, like, giving away holidays to Disney World? Is that what's happening here?
During this poignant vignette, a young black-and-white girl is comforted by her black-and-white mother, as it finally hits her that her dreams of meeting Mickey Mouse in Florida are just that: silly dreams.
But wait! The nice lady from Thorne Travel is here with a brochure for Disney World! Hooray! The day is saved.
And here come Mickey and Minnie (albeit looking slightly melted, and walking with a lumbering zombie-gait).
Sooo... it was a lack of brochure – rather than a lack of money – that was preventing these two from jetting off to Florida?
Or: are Thorne Travel literally giving away holidays to Disney World? Because if that is the case, fair play to 'em.
Question 3: What service, exactly, are Thorne Travel providing this bride-to-be?
Are they magicking her into her bridal gown so that she board her flight in it? Because there are probably comfier options, such as a suit of armour, or one of those novelty inflatable sumo suits.
And where have they transported her to? Inside the hairdressers that she was literally 10ft from a moment ago? Quite the globetrotting adventure!
Question 4: Could they not find a more convincing cruise-ship captain?
Nothing says, "Join us for a fortnight of romance and luxury on the high seas!" like a diminutive, giggling 19-year-old in a shonky fancy-dress outfit.
Question 5: Is that a man in a dress, pretending to be one of the Thorne Travel ladies doing a spot of parkour?
Yes. Yes that's exactly what that is.
