Is This The Image of Wales We Want The World To See?

A row has broken out after a new tourism advert, proclaiming that it always rains in Wales and that the Welsh people are arseholes, is set to hit TV screens across the UK.

The 30-second long advert, which tells viewers to ‘walk in the beauty of its natural environment’ whilst showing a picture of some people getting totally soaked through, is due to air this week during The Chase.

A spokesman for the London company responsible for the advert told WalesOnCraic:

“We were just trying to portray the country in a realistic light and to be truthful. We have been filming here for three months and it has rained everyday except for one afternoon when it snowed and we got beaten up by bandits. They were total arseholes.”

PMT for Wales, Mary Morgan, told WalesOnCraic:

“Well to be honest, the rain makes my hair go all fuzzy and I have never seen the bandits but I once saw Tom Jones in Tesco in Ponty buying fish sticks.”

But local vicar John Holy wasn’t impressed:

“Their so-called slogan – ‘Wales: The Big Country Where It Pisses Down All Of The Time’, although meteorologically correct, isn’t the nicest way to describe Wales. We have lots of indoor fun to be had here, like drinking tea and watching Heno.” o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o
