Weymouth in new advert after Brian's harbourside visit
8:10am Saturday 1st March 2014 in News
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.
