Weymouth in new advert after Brian's harbourside visit

Dorset Echo: ADVERT: Brian the robot in Weymouth ADVERT: Brian the robot in Weymouth

WEYMOUTH provides the backdrop for a new commercial to be shown on TV screens from tomorrow.

The town’s harbourside was chosen for the latest location for Confused.com’s series of adverts starring ‘Brian’, a friendly robot.

Brian and a film crew visited the town last November, turning a few heads as people recognised the TV robot, which promotes the car insurance price comparison site.

The 40-second advert featuring Weymouth will be first shown in advert breaks on Sunday, March 2 and will be screened throughout March.

Weymouth is just one stop on Brian’s travels around the UK.

Marketing Director at Confused.com Joby Russell said: “The advert features one of the most well-known fishing towns in the UK – Weymouth.

“We were really pleased that we could incorporate this quintessentially British seaside setting into Brian’s adventures, and hope that Brian will make a return visit to Weymouth one day soon.”

The advertising campaign has been created in association with Publicis London.
