AM I RIGHT OR AM I RIGHT?
My wife insists that the Hovis advert music was taken from Symphony No. 9, in E Minor “From the New World” (Op. 95) by Dvorak but I think it was written by Adam Ant especially for the advert after enjoying Hovis for many years. My marriage is on the rocks because of this, please tell me I’m right.
Yours Reg Varney
* You are indeed correct Reg, Adam Ant wrote the song in a fit of pique after rivals Sunblessed threatened to air an advert combining the Shake’n’Vac song with a nice crusty farmhouse loaf cycling up a hill. Adam Ant was so enraged believing that Hovis was the only bread that should be consumed he spent six nights in a locked cubicle toilet with a twenty six piece orchestra until they came up with the song you nostalgically remember today.
THE THINGS KIDS SAY
My two-year-old found a spider in the garden and lo and behold spoke their first words. They wanted to know what the speed of light was relative to the speed of sound. I told them I didn’t know to which they replied ‘I knew you were this stupid, this is why I didn’t speak to you for the first two years after I was born.’
* Kids eh? Can’t live with them, can’t live without constant mewlings regarding time and space theorem.
