It was back in August of this year that we first heard a rumour that Paddy McGuinness was going to be in the new JackpotJoy commercial [read more here].
When we heard the news, we assumed that this popular TV presenter was going to be used to advertised one of the themed games that are available at the site, Take Me Out Bingo. The reason for the assumption was that Paddy is the host for the TV show of the same name.
How wrong could we be?
JackpotJoy Say Bye, Bye Barbara And Hello Paddy
There are many bingo sites online today that have advertised their wares on television, and some have used celebrities to front the marketing campaigns too. However, with the exception of maybe Foxy Bingo, none have seen two really well-known celebs in the same commercial.
For JackpotJoy, the storyboard of the new advert is very tongue in cheek and we absolutely love how they have done the handover from Barbara Windsor to Paddy McGuinness.
You can view the advert further on in this article but for now, we will tell the story.
We see Barbara, in full Queen of Bingo regalia, knocking on a blue door and Paddy answers. She questions him about stealing her title and he bundles her into his home saying ‘Mi case, su casa’.
He proceeds to show off his own royal things and starts with the band under the stairs. We’re then shown a whippet dressed in a corgi outfit and his face on a china mug.
Barbara sits in the chair looking far from amused until he tells her he has booked her on a long cruise. You then hear Velcro being torn and then the dress thrown across the room….
