Too niche, too soon.
In this record-breaking 42-minute episode, we remember an ad campaign that was "wonderfully resonant for the culture of the time." (Craig, 2018). At the turn of the century, the Health Education Board Scotland (HEBS) adverts tried to stop Scottish teenagers doing what they and generations before them had done so well and enjoyed so much: drinking too much, smoking, selling their Playstations for smack, and having strokes.
Don't forget, you can watch these ads IN REAL TIME IRL by visiting http://ohlordwontyoubuymeapodcast.xyz/
