'Just Used Confused'
7 May 2024 60s
Whistle me this, whistle me that.
by Andrew MacGregor

The cast of this Confused.com ad know how to whistle (they just put their lips together and blow). They also know the work of folk singer Roger Whittaker, who performed in the Finnish Eurovision qualifiers in 1974. As a result, it's goodbye to 'Rumble' by Link Wray and The Wraymen and hello to 'Finnish Whistler'.

The tune plays when someone uses the advertised website, whoever and wherever they happen to be. This lets director Matthijs van Heijningen jump between places like a café, a crowded lift, a wedding, and a football match, where the referee lets the traditional whistle hang from his neck as he issues a red card.

There is a quick burst of 'Rumble' at the end for continuity, but the price comparison website seem to have left alternate history lessons in the, erm, past for good. Now they want customers to be carefree in the here and now, Finnish or not.
