So Orange Wednesdays is coming to an end. The rise of video on demand seems to have convinced EE to end the promotion that made going to the cinema somewhat less obscenely expensive is no longer good value for them.
This is obviously a shame but the best part of Orange Wednesdays finished a while ago. The adverts that initially advertised the promotion – sadly replaced by nonsense with Kevin Bacon when Orange became EE – were that rare kind of commercial that one actually enjoyed rather than endured.
Here are some of the best:
“So it comes round every Wednesday like clockwork…”
Trolling Darth Vader
The chatty hunter (ft. Patrick Swayze)
And the best one in which Steven Seagal blows up a golf course
